My favourite.Dr. Seuss book and adaptation. Actually seems pretty applicable still today.

This version was made by Ralph Bakshi one of my favourite cartoonists. I still like his version of Lord of the Rings the best. It's really too bad they never finished it.

I read "Five friends" in my youth, like, 30 books or something. Did not give me the impression of racism...


The only thing out of order was that Gorgia obviously was a tomboy lol (nothing wrong with that though)

Clearly none of Dr. Seuss' works are embraced by minorities. Clearly the books are racist.

Ummm...they were all blue werent they?! And was the cat not black AND white? Jeeezus. Thank god for beer...else i would be depressed.


Never fear! You'll wake up tomorrow, hungover and thinking "What did I do last night?" and the memory of the world as it is today, will flood over your thoughts like a torrent of sinister ubiquitous lava, and you'll think "Oh GOD.. I'm out of Beer!"

Then depression will really hit.

You really do have to scratch your head with both hands, just how far they're digging into everything to find outrage and destroy it for future generations... if aliens came here and said "We have wonderful gifts.." and gave up technology that saved mankind, yet at the same time openly tried to dismantle everything about us, we'd fight with armies against them...

instead we're watching it happen from within, and like the proverbial frog in the pot, slowly boiling, we're just looking around at others, shrugging our shoulders and watching it slowly become worse and worse.

By time something is done, as with every other thing happening around us at a profound rate of knots, there will never be any going back.. this lawn can't be cut. only burnt to the ground.

Can you spot why Enid Blyton's " Noddy Books " are now regarded as racist ?



Most children's authors from 50 years or more ago are regarded as either racist, sexist or not PC.




But he admits to having made a mistake.

Banning things from the past is the equivalent of sticking out fingers in our ears and going "NA NA NA NA I CAN'T REMEMBER IT!!"

It's a bit silly, really.

Dr. Seuss opposed racism and discrimination. A bunch of his stories are metaphors for such concepts. Dr. Seuss was an actual social just warrior....and I don't mean that insultingly. He used his story telling and artwork to educate kids about things that sjw's(meant insultingly) should agree with.

Just what the actual #?


That's what I found odd as well... Dr. Seuss was a Progressive and pushed his ideology throughout his cartoons and stories.

You would think the loving and tolerant left wouldn't throw one of their own under the bus.



You would have to be able to think beyond an image, a headline and a slogan, to be able to grasp such concepts written into a cartoon.

Hell, they'll attack one of their own at a protest if they get the wrong idea about them, and then double down when the fact they just mistakenly did attack one of their own, destroys their ignorant foetid world.

The Cat in the Hat.

Clearly a racist slur.

I guess.


Lots of red and white in his imagery.. but rarely any blue. Obviously a republican therefore a racist nazi fascist who should be ridiculed for his hate filled books and removed from the annals of history.

The point is,not matter where you look, authors, illustrators etc from years ago are not acceptable by today's standards.

Sad but true,


So you don't have to read your kid anyone from the beyond the past few years and your child will be poorer for it.

But I'll challenge my child with ideas from other times and we'll discuss why those ideas are good or bad ones in the context of today's world and mores, and my child will end up with a richer understanding of who we are and where we have been.

But, just because some things from the past are not appropriate in the broader context of today does not mean everything is. Please, find something explicit about Dr. Seuss beyond the color of the fantasy illustrations to pin your beliefs on. I think The Sneetches is a powerful story about a segregated society, and how in the end, we are not so different after all. You might even call the man with the star machine a fabulous example of a race hustler.

Totally racist, didn't you know the Cat in the Hat refers to the outdated informal noun Cat, used in North American Jazz Circles (not to be confused with North American Jizz Circles). Not only that, this crazy cat (in a hat) is blacl but he's all white faced up, ergo racist...

Then the Bible must be up there with the likes of Mein Kampf.

Considering it not only promotes racism but also slavery and mass genocide in spades.


Amen to that...

Oh, the Bible is a wonderful thing for leftists. They can find whatever they need to in it to either denigrate their opponents or promote their current cause du jour. Haven't you noticed?

Religion and the Bible are awful and horrible and promote things like racism and slavery or outright ignorance whenever they need to derail an inconvenient traditional morality argument.

But whenever they think they need to ... Jesus was totally a socialist who healed the sick for free. There were no walls or borders of any kind in the Bible, if there had been, Jesus wouldn't have escaped to Egypt. It's awesome to send the unwanted children home to God, etc.
