President Joe Biden just gave the doctor the boot. Millions of Americans are in shock — no one can believe that he made such a disastrous move.
“President Biden dropped Dr. Seuss from Read Across America Day, failing to mention the famed children’s author in his presidential proclamation,” reported Breitbart News this week.
Biden’s decision “coincided with six of the beloved author’s books being pulled from publication for ‘racist and insensitive’ depictions.” Ironically, even former President Barack Obama recognized the author in his proclamation.
In fact, back in 2015, Obama said that the message of Dr. Seuss is that “we’re all the same.” But in the wake of full-blown ‘wokeness’ and cancel culture, nothing is safe — not even Dr. Suess’s time-honored lessons.
At the very least, Biden’s reaction is way overboard. If the publisher of the books wants to pull six of them from circulation, that is obviously a choice — but countless more Dr. Suess books exist.
What’s next? Will books like The Cat in the Hat eventually be canceled completely because a select few of Dr. Suess’s works do not conform to modern sensibilities? Simply put, the possibility is disturbing.
