DEAR EDITOR:

One of your readers, for the second straight week, has perfectly exemplified the self-righteousness and “humor-impaired” of the cancel culture (“Editorial cartoon offends reader”, MDJ 4/23/2021).

The subscribed woke mentality seeks to take a sledgehammer to our 1st Amendment rights of freedom of speech and press and instead propagate a “1984” culture of totalitarianism, mass surveillance, and repressive regimentation of persons, behaviors and thoughts. The writer is in this camp and is further clearly confused about the difference between fact-based reporting and editorial opinion.

If she continues to be offended by editorial cartoons and continues to fail to grasp an understanding of these cartoons for what they are and the role that they play, perhaps she should read only material that reinforces her beliefs.
