All Woke Up: Horton Hears a Microaggression

The Cancel Culture is turning its wrath on the good doctor — Dr. Seuss.

Theodor Seuss Geisel — who has delighted children for decades with such classics as Green Eggs and Ham, Fox in Socks, and The Cat in the Hat — is now a seething racist, according to the painfully Woke.

Seuss Enterprises recently announced it will no longer publish six Seuss books because they’re now deemed to have racially offensive imagery. As Reason’s Robby Soave wrote, the act isn’t really censorship. The publisher owns the rights and is free to do whatever it likes with the books.

It is sad, though, that older Dr. Seuss stories such as, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street would be consigned to the dustbin of dead languages. But the problem runs much deeper.

In a Woke purge, the children’s books are being pulled from the shelves of some public libraries.

“The delivery of education must ensure that no child experiences harm from the resources that are shared,” Manny Figueiredo, director of education for a school board in Ontario, Canada, said in a statement.

As Soave notes, Chicago’s public library system agreed to remove the six books in question—And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, McElligot’s Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, If I Ran the Zoo, Scrambled Eggs Super!, and The Cat’s Quizzer—pending an investigation.

President Joe Biden tossed Dr. Seuss from his Read Across America presidential proclamation last week, just more idiotic virtue signaling from a president bought and paid for by far left.

These are more signs of things to come — the light from the Fahrenheit 451 fires Ray Bradbury warned us about 70 years ago.

The Cancel Culture is figuratively setting fire to anything that doesn’t fit into its vision of the world, destroying the body to remove the birth mark.

In Woke Land, Pepe Le Pew perpetuates the rape culture, Mr. Potato Head is a misogynist, and Dr. Seuss is nothing but a bigot.

Before long, nothing that once was will remain, unless it complies with the Woke code. In that case, prepare yourself for Horton Hears a Microaggression, Green New Deal and Ham, and Oh, the Antiracists You Will Know.
