As part of their usual deflection and dumbing-down of the US populace, Fox News and the general Wingnut-American community are in a froth about.. the cancelling of Dr. Seuss. Which isn’t really a thing, but it helps fill the outrage quota for the day.
I didn’t actually watch this drivel, but in the spirit of providing links, here is Biden erases Dr. Seuss from ‘Read Across America’ proclamation as progressives seek to cancel beloved author if you really want to watch.
So, let’s get to the good part. Dr. Seuss did draw some very racist stuff, particularly of Japanese during WW2 for the US war propaganda. Which is why his works need to be.. analyzed. But of relevance to Fox and other wingnuts should be his opinions of the “America First” movement. Which they love, right?
Update.. Thanks for reading. This is another not-terribly-important-but-you-are-going-to hear-it-ad-nauseum stories. As in all my diaries, this one wasn’t very developed when published. The comments add a lot, I encourage everyone to read them and add to them. So, nobody caught the pun in the first drawing’s title?
Update #2 I can’t let this pass.. thanks to WesMorgan1 here is a link to the UC San Diego site with a whole collection of Dr Seuss, including his ads for Flit insecticide. Enjoy!
