Tonight I made a rare Friday appearance with Tucker Carlson on Fox News. The subject was a Massachusetts school librarian's decision to reject a gift of children's books from Melania Trump because Dr Seuss is "racist propaganda":
According to Steyn, the letter that Massachusetts librarian Phipps Soeiro wrote was "incredibly moronic" and "part of the dumbing down of American society." After disputing one of Serio's complaints, Steyn lamented that "we are making ourselves a society too stupid to survive."
Steyn specifically took issue with Soeiro's complaint that the main character in "The Cat in the Hat" had a bowtie intended to evoke imagery from racist, minstrel shows. In response, Steyn ran through a list of cartoon characters, such as Mickey Mouse and Porky Pig, who wore bowties. "Cartoon characters wear bowties. That's nothing to do with minstrel shows," Steyn argued.

Mark's poem of the librarian:
I do not like you, Trump-I-am
I think you are a racist ham
I think you are not bona fide
I do not like your Slovene bride...
And Nation of Islam.
Although Farrakhan has taken to wearing regular ties.
You can be relieved that Steyn is not a 'Bronie'.
What the hell is that.
She made a fool of everyone at the school, too.
Folks — this is how you stop it. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.
My dad always wore bow ties... Being a doc, long floppy cloth is a transmission hazard
Anapestic tetrameters?! There really is such a thing.
So the commie librarian has previously dressed up as the Cat in the Hat. Never mind, it has been overridden by the all consuming hatred of Donald Trump. I thought Bush Derangement Syndrome was bad. This is foaming at the mouth moonbattery. Just the mention of Trump’s name induces pea soup projectile puke and heads turning round and round like on the Exorcist.
That’s much more accurate than Steyn calling her stupid, IMO.
It’s dangerous to call these people stupid when they are actually hypocritical, disingenuous, evil deceptive brainwashing Marxist liars. (Was that redundant?)
Love his poem.
I don’t know how many conservatives find Dr Seuss as subversive.
These were wonderful books from my childhood and my child’s as well.
Trying to read politics into everything is pointless.....
Bronies are adult men obsessed with My Little Pony.
Yes, its a phenomenon.
And you really dont want to know what a clopper is.
Like, “no stars upon thars” as societal leveling? I can see it...
The English language originates with Germanic Europeans and is therefor racist.
(sigh.) I love Mark Steyn. He is one sexy ginger. With just enough dorkiness to keep me entertained.
