What's the use of donating to Thought Bubble convention's drive for old and new books if they wouldn't stand behind Frank Miller?

The Harrogate Informer announced a special donation drive by the Thought Bubble convention in Yorkshire:
From today, Thought Bubble is inviting all comic book fans, collectors, creators, publishers and comic shops to donate new and used comic books, to help with their ambitious goal; to put comics into the hands of more people than ever!

The Comic Book Drive idea was sparked at the start of the pandemic by Thought Bubble Festival Manager, Chloe Green, when job losses and inevitable budget cuts were looming. However, lockdown began which made collecting physical donations no longer an option, but now that restrictions are lifted, Team Thought Bubble are able to launch the project.

The whole of the Thought Bubble team are enthusiastic about comics being made accessible for everyone, and for years have worked with Diamond UK (The comic distribution company) and Travelling Man (The comic book shop) to donate comics annually to libraries across Yorkshire. The Comic Book Drive is building on those years of work, with hopes of taking it to another level.
But are they enthusiastic about standing behind veterans like Frank Miller, recalling their decision to throw him under the bus because Zainab Akhtar demanded it? What's the use of donating if they can't remain true to better values? That's why I'd advise giving pause to donating dough, let alone books, to this campaign, if they're going to allow extremists to dictate whom they can or cannot invite for the festival. A terrible shame this UK convention's added themselves to a whole list of politically correct cowards.

I wouldn't think Miller would be your cup of tea considering all the disrespect and distaste going on in his stories: the misogyny, the shilling and disrespect for certain characters, the bad artwork, etc. Ditto Morrison upon reflection.
