    Yesterday we published this blog about SJW librarian Liz Phipps Soiero from a Cambridge Elementary School who wrote a virtue signaling letter to First Lady Melania Trump, letting her know that she was rejecting the free books that had been sent to her school because Dr. Seuss was racist.

    And then there’s the matter of the books themselves. You may not be aware of this, but Dr. Seuss is a bit of a cliché, a tired and worn ambassador for children’s literature. 

    Another fact that many people are unaware of is that Dr. Seuss’s illustrations are steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes. Open one of his books (If I Ran a Zoo or And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, for example), and you’ll see the racist mockery in his art. Grace Hwang Lynch’s School Library Journal article, “Is the Cat in the Hat Racist? Read Across America Shifts Away from Dr. Seuss and Toward Diverse Books,” reports on Katie Ishizuka’s work analyzing the minstrel characteristics and trope nature of Seuss’s characters. Scholar Philip Nel’s new book, Was the Cat in the Hat Black? The Hidden Racism of Children’s Literature, and the Need for Diverse Books, further explores and shines a spotlight on the systemic racism and oppression in education and literature.

    We pointed out the utter absurdity of calling Dr. Seuss a racist. Especially since his books specifically highlighted the ridiculousness of segregation and discrimination:

     

    Well, this story just got a lot more interesting. Tuns out this librarian is actually a big fan of Dr. Seuss:

    Looks like Dr. Seuss only became a racist cliche after Trump got elected. Funny, lots of things have only become racist in the last year. Like Trump himself. I remember back when he was just a reality TV star and no one had a problem with him. Now he’s President and he’s all of a sudden the grand marshall of the Ku Klux Klan.

    Funny that a woman who wants to go around banning books in the library, previously protested against banning books in the library:

    Oh, and for what it’s worth she has absolutely zero authority to reject books that were part of a federal program:

    The school district, for its part, released a critical statement saying, “The employee was not authorized to accept or reject donated books on behalf of the school or school district. We have counseled the employee on all relevant policies, including the policy against public resources being used for political purposes.”

    I was gonna say – she’s a fucking employee. Since when does she have any authority about what resources are used in her taxpayer funded school? That’s like a cop writing a letter to Trump saying he doesn’t want his gun because guns hurt people.

    P.S. This is NOT funny.

    NOT funny at all.

      Hypocrisy, thy name is liberalism.

      1. dave


        Number one necessity of being a leftist – hypocrisy.

      2. Strata


        Look, this was a pathetic grab for attention by a person that truly feels meaningless and irrelevant, but what is more pathetic is the so called elite media always running these stories and giving them a platform.

        Let’s review, some idiot attention seeker writes an open letter and gives back some books hoping this will catch fire and become a story……. who cares, idiots say & pen open letter s everyday….. gee, I wonder why this one caught on fire. Oh yeah, it’s crapping on Melania so print it !

    2. Irishcurse


      Wait, so a liberal is faking outrage? Surely this is anomaly?

      1. The Cambridge Librarian Acted Stupidly


        Imagine what would happen if someone returned books to Michele Obama. Just imagine.

        1. Sonny's Mom


          Now funny you should mention that! Because there’s audio and video of our previous First Lady visiting schools and reading Seuss books to little kids. And throwing a Seuss-themed kids’ party at the White House.

    3. DJ Trump


      Literally a “Disingenuous White Liberal”
      …Is it PC to call a spade a spade?

    4. Cracker Jack


      We got rid of elementary librarians years ago (budget cuts). Parents now volunteer and it has been awesome. Couple of folks take morning or afternoon shifts once per week. It is a pleasure to see how the school actually runs. Any moron could do that job with 1 hour of training.

    5. Popeye


      I wonder what happened to Olive Oyl

      1. hahahaohreally


        nah, Olive Oil had two dudes fighting over her, this has literally never happened with this chick.

    6. Dumb Hick


      Fucking arrogant, pretentious, elitist progressive liberal with a massive stick up her ass. Spits or swallows?

      1. gfldgadfly


        Is option three “blends with kale and beetroot to add extra protein to morning power greens smoothie”? Cuz that’s where my money is.

      2. Hughbo Mont


        Neither.

      3. SJW are Cunts


        Neither, carpet muncher.

      4. wabbitt


        Neither, because no man would be drunk, desperate, or fucked enough to bang someone who looks like a mash up of Olive Oyl and Ruth Bader-Ginsberg.

    7. Steven Stover


      A phony asshole. If those same books came from a democrat she would have been bragging about them and sending a love letter off. What really matters is herself. That is why it was a open letter to The first Lady for all to see and then she thought she would be a hero. Fuck the kids. It’s all about her. Well her showed her true colors. A phony POS who is selfish, childish, mean spirited, hateful and racist.

    8. Cape Codfish


      I’ll bet you 4 cents her mom got sucked into that feminism fad, went to Work, and put little miss future librarian into day-care, so mom could “earn” almost enough to pay for the day-care. Forget that bonding, forget being able to cope in the world, you’re a victim, a victim of something, and when you get triggered, escape to the Safe Space Room. Which remarkably, is decorated to look like… a daycare playroom. Sure, everyone wants their mommy,,, but guess what? You got Trump. Sorry bout..

    9. MITCH


      I’ll ask the obvious question because no one else has. Is this book burner an American citizen??? Most Americans are horrified over destroying books. How do we find out?? If she is here illegally, which is quite possible knowing Cambridge and their utter hatred of white working class Americans I WOULD REPORT HER TO ICE IMMEDIATELY. We need to protect our children from this disgusting monster. Also my internet investigation of this “woman” comes up almost completely blank…who IS this person??? What is her real history, any help would be appreciated.

    10. Sloppy


      The liberals seem like they’re trying to gear up for some kind of mass rebellion or civil war or something, and I guess the sweet spot of it is that those of us who aren’t raging liberals have all the money, guns, and testosterone. So how’s that one gonna work out for ya there liberals…

      1. DJ Trump


        When metal meets the flesh, this group will fold like a cheap suit. They’re all soft as puppy shit

      2. Moo Moo


        Theyre prepping for the NEXT obama presidency: Moochelle

    11. Mary


      Thank God, I do not have kids in her school

    12. whatevuh


      Just another attention seeking whore

    13. Independent Thinker


      She should be fired. What an honor for a school to receive a gift from the First Lady. She rejected it simply because she hates Trump and is probably jealous of Melania. She was in no position to make this kind of decision. Only the School Committee can make this decision. I wonder what other decisions she has made on her own without authorization.

    14. I love it


      The first lady sent books to one school in every state. In Mass she just so happened to send books to the most liberal pro Hillary anti Trump far left fucked up SJW Town in the state.

      Coincidence or a big FUCK YOU to the Liberal losers? You be the judge.

    15. Fisting Lesbians


      We like the braids in her hair. It’s like grabbing a pair of handlebars when she’s nose deep in the love canal.

      Another plus is with braids she doesn’t need to use much shampoo if she ever showers. We don’t.

    16. WHY


      Why is it that the female SJWs are ugly. There should be a line chart that marks the uglier they are the more likely it is they’re an SJW.

      1. Mike


        She is literally Randy Marsh from this week’s South Park.
