Dr. Seuss Gets White Trashed on his Birthday

Dr. Seuss, Read Across America Day

Our woke betters took out the white trash again this week. Dr. Seuss Enterprises has decided to stop publishing six of his books due to racial imagery. Loudoun County Public Schools in Virginia sounded the alarm over the weekend. The district is discouraging Dr. Seuss on “Read Across America Day”. But they insist they did not cancel the good doctor:

 Research in recent years has revealed strong racial undertones in many books written/illustrated by Dr. Seuss. Examples include anti-Japanese American political cartoons and cartoons depicting African-Americans for sale captioned with offensive language.”

Due to this research, as well as what LCPS described as its ongoing focus on “equity and culturally responsive instruction,” schools were advised to refrain from strictly linking Read Across America Day festivities with the birthday of Dr. Seuss, which also lands on March 2.

Dr. Seuss research? They’re just following the science.

Got Coronavirus vaccine? If not, you might lack vaccine equity. Politico reports more whites than blacks proportionally are getting shots. And essential workers are moving to the front of the line. But vaccine equity gets tricky. Does a 40-something diabetic move ahead of his 50-something nurse? Distribution has been slow.

One thing is certain, age is a factor. Most of the half million dead were elderly.

So, Connecticut is going another way – distribution by age:

I’m going to focus on the old business motto, KISS: Keep it simple, stupid — because a lot of complications result from states that tried to finely slice the salami and it got very complicated to administer

Pandemic is Excuse Power Brokers Waiting For

pandemic, power brokers,

The global pandemic is the excuse the left has been waiting for to vastly expand its control. Power brokers in government, the media and corporate America have consistently invoked often-shifting science, which must never be questioned, to impose coercive policies that diminish individual freedom while increasing dependence on government.
