The Left Cancels Dr. Seuss
In a sign of how quickly the Left is regressing, it is now moving to cancel Dr. Seuss. Recently its derangement spread to the point where Hasbro thought it prudent to re-label its iconic toys, Mr. Potato Head and Mrs. Potato Head, simply Potato Head. Now, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, the entity responsible for preserving the author's legacy, decided to discontinue the sales of six of the infamous children's author's books. They are:
Although thefedralistpages.com has not been able to identify the reasoning behind the decision as it relates to each of the works directly from the Enterprise, according to CNN, it appear that "The Cat's Quizzer" was removed because a Japanese character is referred to as "a Japanese," and features drawings of a bright yellow face. . . standing on what appears to be Mt. Fuji." In "If I Ran the Zoo, the Asian characters who are not wearing conical hats are carrying a white man on their heads who is holding a gun. Again according to CNN's report, the composition "illustrates dominance."
The decision and its enthusiastic acceptance flies in the face of what Former President Barrack Obama and Vice President Kamala Harris were saying about the author just a few years ago. In 2015, Obama lavished praise on Dr. Seuss by telling a group of White House interns, "Pretty much all the stuff you need to know is in Dr. Seuss." Similarly, on March 2, 2017, Harris praised the author in a birthday tweet. "Happy Birthday, #DrSeuss! 'The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.'"
