But come one everyone... this is a great opportunity to blame leftist liberals, i.e. Democrats.

Thanks Obama!

(And Shrillary... Nasty Woman... )


Oh we all knew they would be all over this. Junior in particular.

Of course, this whole labeling of and complaining about cancel culture isn’t reflective of what the real issue is. Nobody is censuring them or anybody. Everyone can still write and say what they want. What the real issue is that they are realizing that there is a smaller percentage of people buying their particular load of s*** and they are scared about it.

I’m so sad my pristine dr Seuss books are only tangentially racist and problematic instead of full on offensive. Otherwise I’d be selling that s*** on eBay and paying off the rest of my MLIS.

I just haven’t found someone I dislike enough to passively aggressively give s***ty books to, so they are still in my house.


But yeah dudebro is not getting “cancelled” They decided to stop printing 6 of the crappies selling, most cringe worthy books two years ago. Granted no one noticed they were not part of the publishing catalog because our president the time was not a “reader” of such complicated missives, and skipped the children’s reading events this week. the news was focused on what he toilet tweeted between executive times.


Details shmetails.

I think the FBI needs to keep an eye out on EBay for the sellers of high priced Dr Seuss books, if any are Random House executives, or their proxies!

These are all trial runs for aligning society with State-Sponsored Speech. Same for pushing Trump off Twitter--just multi-national corporations aligning with the left punishing those who say incorrect opinions.

The Chinese have mastered this. They call it "disappearing" and it's not just books or statues they do it to.


If Stephen Colbert were around in the '50s, he would have railed against McCarthyism. Now he embraces this thing and makes cute little anecdotes to justify it.

Books no longer published by the publisher ought to be part of the public domain.

So much more than your usual, inane one liners.

Must have touched a nerve.

thought it's still inane.

Good point about McCarthy... the Christian Right has been trying to undermine the 1st Amendment since (at least) the early 1900’s.., and now they are acting like crybabies.

Bulls***.

You, and anyone, is still as free to say what you want anytime you want, just like before, and will still be in the future. Nothing has changed.

What is really happening is less people are interested in consuming what it is those on your side say.

This shouldn’t be surprising either.

Because a lot of it, too, is bulls*** , bulls*** , and more bulls*** .
