It’s been all over the news lately that some Dr. Seuss books, beloved by children and parents for decades, will be cancelled, by the Foundation that protects the author’s legacy! This is ostensibly because they “display racist imagery”. The Cancel Culture, which judges creations from the past by today’s often-racist standards, is sweeping through Society, aided and abetted by the Leftist Press, popular culture, and academia.
So I was surprised to hear that the Seattle Public Libraries, in a thoroughly unlikely step, have said that they will be keeping all the cancelled books in regular circulation! Knowing that Seattle is about as far-left as any blue city in the bluest of blue states, both I and Jason Rantz of KTTH Radio find this to be exceptional and quite unexpected. The Seattle Librarians have said that they will protect the “banned” books, perhaps from “offended” Seattleites who have been known to engage in wanton destruction of things they don’t like. For a change Librarians Protect Books, instead of yielding to the Mob. Kudos to Seattle Librarians!
