Letter to the editor

Kudos to Loren Fishman for his recent “Mallard Fillmore” comic strips on the Opinion page.

I’m certain many “free thinkers” on the left have been disturbed by his frank approach to the Black Lives Matter movement.

As we come closer to author George Orwell’s “thought police,” I fear the next step will be to outlaw books. The left has attacked Mark Twain and some libraries have removed the books “Huckleberry Finn” and “Tom Sawyer” from the shelves. Will Civil War histories be next?

Douglas Freeman of Richmond, Virginia, wrote “Lee’s Lieutenants” and biographies of George Washington and Robert E. Lee. Will these books be banned?

I’m tired of being told what I can think by left-handed bullies. Is this how they plan to unify us?
