Newest symptom of Trump Derangement Syndrome: an elementary school librarian in Massachusetts rejected a gift to the children of a set of Dr. Seuss books from the First Lady, then went on a self-righteous rant, not only attacking Trump but also attacking Dr. Seuss, claiming his books are “cliché” and “steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes.”

Dr. Seuss taught us all that:

"A person’s a person,

no matter how small.”

He just didn’t know

how small some folks could grow.


Do you believe that people of any race or culture would do better in life if they observed the typical values of mid-Century America that made us a beacon for people around the world? That is, do you think everyone, regardless of race, gender or creed, could increase their chances of being successful in life if they worked hard, respected authority, had children within marriage, and showed self-discipline both on- and off-the-job (i.e., avoiding a “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll” lifestyle)?

Well, congratulations! According to University of Pennsylvania student union leaders (and no doubt, fellow young SJWs nationwide), you are a sexist, racist, homophobic, xenophobic oppressor who espouses hatred and superiority toward other cultures, and you must be silenced and banished from university life.

Try to take some cold comfort in knowing that if the students flogging you actually do reject your “hateful” advice and adopt that equally worthy culture of sex, drugs, laziness and defiance of authority, they are likely to be in for some pretty miserable lives once they’re gently burped for the final time at graduation and rudely deposited into the real world.
