I understand why a totalitarian government needs to ban books but, Dr. Seuss? I mean WTF is this administration thinking? Or are they thinking at all? What will ultimately happen is those books will increase in value so much that republishing will be a no brainier. And Dr Seuss already holds the #2 spot for dead celebrity earners closely behind Micheal Jackson. Children's books racist, my ass. Cancel Culture must end. Progressives started it and only they can end it

The government passed a law banning Dr. Suess? Can you provide text of the law. I would like to read it. Sounds egregious. Or maybe a link to an executive order?

You two be done seen about everything, when you see your elephant crash. See what I did there. I Invoked Dumbo's racist depiction of crows as a historical wrong that now gets labeled as such. Disney still lets you see Dumbo but they warn you there is a scene with a bunch of crows that used racist stereotypes of black people, exaggerated dialect and outdated images. It happened. Disney is now saying that even though it happened, it was wrong. This is a warning on this movie to show you that we know it's wrong but it still exists. That's the same recognition in the old Dr Seuss books.

Fake news. No books have been banned, just lots of faux outrage.

But it's a great time for pugs to pick up copy of The Lorax, which they tried very much to denounce, if not ban, a few years back.

This use of “communism” to mean anything perceived as antithetical to white, conservative christianity, rather than communism in a Marxist sense is quite old. It’s coherent in its own right wing context, but sounds very stupid outside of it.

It's all a distraction. The establishment wants us to get back to arguing about statues, men using women's restrooms, whether Mr. Potato Head has a gender, and Dr. Seuss so they can go back to randomly bombing people in foreign countries while we are too busy arguing with each other to care. The establishment is back, baby! Four years of Trump made them focus all their efforts on him, despite him overseeing a pretty peaceful Presidency on the world stage. Back to the old ways. Biden can blame others for the problems he helped create over the past 50 years and continue to forward a failed agenda.

When stuff like this pops up, the first thing you should start doing is trying to figure out what they are trying to divert attention from.

Nobody, including Democrats, thinks banning anything Dr. Seuss wrote is a priority.

Man, Z.

I get it.

When half of your books in your library are arbitrarily wiped out. Sux.

At least you got Where's Waldo.

There were school districts that did ban The Lorax and there was plenty of outrage among the FOX crowd about the Lorax film a couple of years ago.

Yes, Trump served his purpose as a smoke screen for McConnell very well.
The establishment
Who is that exactly?
wants us to get back to arguing about statues
It's the OANN crowd that is always raging about their participation losers trophies from the Jim Crow era.
whether Mr. Potato Head has a gender
Who posted about that here? Which news organizations were outrages by that decision a company about degendering their toy that stores its body parts in its ass? Are those entities "the establishent".
go back to randomly bombing people in foreign countries
Look at the piecenik. Fucking crocodile tears.
Four years of Trump made them focus all their efforts on him,
Trump isn't establishment but he put Mnuchin, Wheeler, Pruitt, Ross, etc... in those key cabinet posts. Hmm. Was he just a useful idiot smokescreen then?

God damn these qotard $itches are a sad lot. You'd think them losing their orange boyfriend by a vast majority of American votes would be cause to reflect but no.

Whining about Dr Seuss when the Doctor himself acknowledged he could have been kinder?

hey pos $itches you read twitler's books?

You dumb, you really really dumb.

The gubbmint didn't do it, Biden didn't do it, and cancel culture didn't begin with progressives. You seem to forget our long history of censorship and cancelling by conservatives, especially conservative Christians.

Anyhow, Dr. Seuss Enterprises pulled the books themselves. Not the gubbmint' you fucktard.

Zeus is a white college kid? I thought he was an old man trying to figure out why he can't pull the corners of his eyes back, stick out his front teeth, and exaggerate mispronounced consonants.

The gov't had absolutely nothing to do with Dr. Seuss books. That would be against 1A.


You know who pulled the Dr. Seuss books? Dr. Seuss company you dumbasses


Don't argue with a dotard, they will bring you down to their level of stupidity and beat you with experience
