Dr. Seus Was A Liberal But Now He's Cancelled?

Does this mean that I should support cancel culture since it cancels liberals? Is cancel culture actually conservative?

    HYPE AND HYPERBOLE, anonymous!  The publishers of Dr. Seuss (note the double 's') chose to stop printing only six of the many Seuss books because those six were deemed to be discriminatory.  How come you assume that the capitalists who made this decision are only liberal and not pragmatic?

    The Seuss Estate is NOT cancelling Dr Seuss.  In fact, they are releasing more and more books in the Seuss style called The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library; very ecologically aware, I must say.  My guess is the Estate believes they will have a bigger market if they update their book list.  BTW, do you guys understand how capitalism works?

    Dr. Seuss is being targeted for being a rich dead white guy. Liberals like to abuse the dead because they can't fight back. They can't stand that he earned $33 million last year while dead and they can't teach their own constituency to earn a living wage while still alive. Less recreational drugs and reverse racism might help.

    Cancel culture is actually conservative. I remember them cancelling the Teletubbies long ago because they had conspiracy theories that one of them was covertly gay and was subliminally converting infants into avid gayness.

    And then they tried to cancel Harry Potter because they thought it was satanic. And they canceled all sorts of things during their Satanic Panic of the 1980s
