What's the Big Deal About Canceling Dr. Seuss?

It isn't even surprising whenever the cultural left cancels something anymore. They have canceled actors, musicians, syrups, rice, politicians, books and professors that espouse even an inkling of right leaning thought, and even whole states. They move en masse, hone in on a target, find some silly reason to get offended, and attack all at once. They have done this on such a regular basis that we hear about it, get frustrated, and forget about it all within a 24 hour news cycle. Now, the latest cancelation, has brought more attention than they intended. They canceled Dr. Seuss.

Why is this so bad? Why has this rubbed so many the wrong way? It's simple. Everyone loves Dr. Seuss because his books are so innocent. No one has ever been corrupted by these books and no one could actually ever be corrupted by these books. In our culture where being offended and being a victim is a crown of honor, it seems like finding the most obscure reason to get offended gives you bonus "woke points" and exalts you in the crowd as a Social Justice Warrior.

So someone, somewhere, somehow found a way to make a few Dr. Seuss books offensive...and poof! They are gone. Hang on to your copy of And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street. Or perhaps sell your copy of If I Ran the Zoo on eBay (They are currently going for over $300.)

Take note that the National Education Association is so concerned that your children may read some of these very dangerous books and is feverishly banning them, yet they promote books that encourage transgenderism and cross dressing in children (such as I Am Jazz and Jacob's New Dress.) Go ahead and look up these books on Amazon. Which books are available and which ones aren't? Why is Dr. Seuss bad but sexualizing and confusing our children good? It really makes you wonder why they don't want our children innocent and playful (Dr. Seuss) but want them sexualized and confused (I Am Jazz) at a young age. It sounds to me like there are some pretty perverse underlying motives. The National Education Associaition is on board with this agenda. Amazon is on board with this agenda. Leftists politicians are on board. What's their end game?

I‘ve listed some of my frustrations, but I want to end with this thought, which is not far off. If Dr. Seuss can be cancelled by the woke mob, Dr. Seuss who is loved by all, how about the Bible? 

The Bible is filled with passages that claim all other religions in the world, except Christianity, are wrong and that their followers are going to hell. Passages that boldly exclaim the evils of homosexually and the dangers of sexual confusion. Passages that teach against divorce and that promote virtuous living. I supposed once the progressive leftists get us used to the idea of burning books like The Cat's Quizzer because they are dangerous, they will condition our culture to consider banning, maybe just a few, books in the Bible.

 Think that's too crazy a thought...just remember a week ago when you thought Dr. Seuss was safe!
