|Earlier this month First Lady Melania Trump celebrated National Read a Book Day by selecting some children’s books and sending them to one school in each state. Mrs. Trump selected Dr. Seuss’ Oh, the Places You’ll Go! because it was, “one of her personal favorites that she and her son have read together over and over.”|
...Tuesday, the librarian at Cambridge port Elementary School in Massachusetts wrote a response which informed the First Lady the school would be rejecting the books, calling them “racist propaganda.”
So... "Dr. Seuss’s illustrations are steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes"??
And just WHO is this Old Maid Spinster Librarian?

Clarence... Where's Liz?
I think Thing One, and Thing Two, bypassed an unflushed toilet. Maybe they'll come back and the librarian can be placed in her proper place.ReplyDelete
Has anyone explained her rationale?ReplyDelete
Jess, Can I pull the ber!? :)ReplyDelete
Ed, My link from "About Liz..." leads to her disjointed and condescending correspondence with the first lady. Apparently there was the Was the Cat in the Hat Black, and other nonsensical drivel. The Hotair article includes video of obama and mooch reading Seuss to children, which is an example of self-hate. Maybe Trump should send her a Churchill bust as a parting gift?
