Hello Americans. I’m Todd Starnes with news and commentary next.
Have you ever had one of those days when you feel like staying in bed? You just know it’s going to be one of those days? Well, today is one of those days.
There’s yet another new development in the Dr. Seuss debacle.
So far, six of his books have been yanked from circulation over accusations of racism.
Now comes word that the Cat in the Hat is a racist and Horton the Elephant is a white supremacist.
Yep – it’s gonna be one of those days.
Listen to Todd’s interview with Newsmax TV’s Rob Finnerty
An organization called, “The Conscious Kid,” started this Cancel Culture mess by examining Dr. Seuss’s books through the lens of Critical Race Theory.
They believe that all literature must be examined with an eye to its alleged inherent racism.
These people are just as bad as the Muslim terrorists. Their goal is to pillage and plunder western civilization — to destroy the American way of life. I wrote about that in my book, “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation.”
As for “Horton Hears a Who” – they say the book is an allegory about a white savior complex. And the Cat in the Hat was inspired by blackface.
Technically, Horton and the Cat could be considered biracial. The cat is black and white. And Horton is gray.
I really should’ve taken the day off.
