The Liability of Liberalism: Everything is Racist

Now, including skin color, that which is racist is anything Dr. Seuss!

Hooray for Liberals! Hooray for Liberalism!

“Another fact that many people are unaware of is that Dr. Seuss’s illustrations are steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes,” Soeiro wrote, giving examples of “If I Ran a Zoo” and “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” as clear “racist mockery” in Seuss’ art.”

Melania Trump fires back at librarian who rejected gift of Dr. Seuss books as ‘racist’

First lady Melania Trump fired back Friday at a Massachusetts elementary school librarian who rejected her donation of Dr. Seuss books, claiming their illustrations are examples of “racist propaganda.”

Stephanie Grisham, director of communications for the first lady’s office, said in a statement to Fox News that the response was “unfortunate,” and Mrs. Trump wanted to use her platform “to help as many children as she can.”

“She has demonstrated this in both actions and words since her husband took office, and sending books to children across the country is but one example,” she said. “To turn the gesture of sending young students some books into something divisive is unfortunate, but the First Lady remains committed to her efforts on behalf of children everywhere.”

To celebrate “National Read a Book Day,” the first lady had sent out a collection of 10 Dr. Seuss books to one school in each state across the nation. The titles included: “The Cat in the Hat”; “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish”; “Wacky Wednesday”; “Green Eggs and Ham”; and “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”

She followed in the footsteps of her predecessor, Michelle Obama, who often read Dr. Seuss books to children. Former first ladies Hillary Clinton and Barbara Bush also read to children at Dr. Seuss-themed educational events.

“I wanted to send you a special gift. Dr. Seuss’s Oh, the Places You’ll Go! is a book my son and I have read over and over again, and one that we want to share with all of you,” the first lady wrote in her letter to students. “Please also remember that you are the future of America and that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.”

But despite the gesture, Liz Phipps Soeiro, a librarian at a public school in Cambridge, wrote a letter to the first lady, which was then published on The Horn Book blog, notifying Mrs. Trump that her school would “not be keeping the titles” for their collection, explaining that her school didn’t have a “NEED” for the books, due to her school and library’s “award-winning” status.

“I work in a district that has plenty of resources, which contributes directly to ‘excellence,’” Soeiro wrote. “My students have access to a school library with over nine thousand volumes and a librarian with a graduate degree in library science.”

Soeiro went on to slam the White House and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos for not gifting the books to “underfunded and underprivileged communities,” which she suggested “continue to be marginalized” by DeVos’ policies.

But Soeiro seemed to be the most offended by the books themselves.

    When will the troll give us a consistent definition of race? Oh yeah, he can’t.

    What color are you, troll? Lets hold up a white sheet of paper and i’ll bet money you don’t match. Lets hold up a color chart and see which color you really are. Rofl.

  2. We’ll continue to use your definition of Race, Liberals…it’s soooo much more fun!

    In order for something to be ‘racist’, it must have some sort of ‘race’ attached to it, otherwise how could the thing be ‘racist’?

    To recap then, we have these so far:

    1. Liberals
    2. Skin color
    3. Dr. Seuss books
    4. Confederate Monuments
    5. Hurricane Harvey

  3. I Hate Conservativiots says:

    Note the troll still cant consistently define race for all races.
    What color are you, troll. It damn sure isn’t white. Rofl.

  4. “Note the troll still cant consistently define race for all races.
    What color are you, troll. It damn sure isn’t white. Rofl.”

    Yes indeed, the newest definition for “Race” is “Big Bank Balance”.

    That’s right, ‘White’ = ‘Big Bank Balance’ as per the following:

    “What the troll fails to understand about racism is white is not a color. It’s a big bank balance.

    Oh yeah, he gets it. Yeah right.

    Dick nails it.

    How ‘bout that you poor white folks out there?

    Did ya know you’re not “white” but instead you’re “big bank balance”? You’re not poor! Oh no, not at all!

  5. Let’s add to your plethora of Liberal definitions of “Race” and “Racism”, shall we?

    Continuing from the below we have the following plus one additional (bold):

    1. Liberals
    2. Skin color
    3. Dr. Seuss books
    4. Confederate Monuments
    5. Hurricane Harvey
    6. Big Bank Balance (because “white” = “big bank balance – Dick gets it right”)

  6. I Hate Conservativiots says:

    No stupid troll,
    Big bank balance = white.
    Not the other way around. Poor people aren’t even people, to trump, are they?
    And jar jar banks in Star Wars is a racial stereotype, too. So what?

  7. Oh this clears it up:

    “Big bank balance = white.”

    But wait, THIS Liberal (unlike the rest of his ilk) claimed “Race” can’t be defined by skin color:

    “No. Progressives define race as the human race. What color are you, troll. It damn sure isn’t white. Rofl.”

    Therefore, in the Liberal’s worldview, “white” should actually equal “human race”, in which case, ‘Big bank balance = human race’.

    But in the above argument, he seems to be applying “white” as a racial term.

    Therefore doesn’t he contradict himself?

    Let’s examine this further – if “Big bank balance = human race”, does the set of all humans have a “big bank balance”?

    Even the Liberal contradicts his own premise:

    “Poor people aren’t even people, to trump, are they?”

    Oh dear…

  8. I Hate Conservativiots says:

    How the troll trips himself up by not defining anything.

    “‘Big bank balance’ = white.

    “But wait, THIS Liberal (unlike the rest of his ilk) claimed “Race” can’t be defined by skin color”

    It seems the troll has again gotten very mixed up. In this instance = is meant to convey definition not mathmatical equivalence.

    As in: a big balance is what defines you as white, not your skin color. Thus, i have certainly not defined race as skin color, duh!
    I have defined white as something other than color. Its about prejudice not skin.

    Quit babbling, troll. You prattle about while remaining a sucker. You need to wake up and realize you’re the n-word, too.

  9. How the troll trips himself up by not defining anything.
    “So ‘Big bank balance = white.”
    As in: a big balance is what defines you as white, not your skin color. Thus, i have certainly not defined race as skin color, duh!
    I have defined white as something other than color. Its about prejudice not skin.

    Yeah…I JUST said that…

    “But wait, THIS Liberal (unlike the rest of his ilk) claimed “Race” can’t be defined by skin color:”

    “Quit babbling, troll.”

    You betcha Liberal…it is I who am the babbler 

    “You prattle about while remaining a sucker. You need to wake up and realize you’re the n-word, too.”

    Sure I do, Liberal…suuuuure I do…
