Now, this one you need to hold for the long run. I'm sure it will be worth something one day.

When not banning Dr. Seuss books is some kind of brave act of radical independence, the society is ill.

What the left completely misses here, is it doesn't matter whether they voluntarily ceased the publication of certain books, or whether there was a ban.

Let me give you an analogy.

An employer is unhappy with an employees performance, but they really don't want to come down on them with a big hammer.
They give the employee the opportunity to resign, which the employee agrees to.

On paper, it looks like the employee simply left the company on their own, but to people who know better, the employee was indeed fired.

Now back to the topic, the people who produce these books realize now that if they don't get ahead of a situation like this, they know the woke mob will come for them. For this reason they announce that the books no longer fit into the American mainstream, and they need to go. They now look "woke" and they have averted the pitch forks and cans of gas that the woke mob would soon be unleashing on them if they failed to act.

So to you dumbass liberals on this board, you can try and spin this all you like but this is in fact "banning" books. It's just not conducted blatantly in front of everyone's eyes.

Castro the tyrant said it very clearly, and the demoncRats under the stolen Biden/Harris election are succeeding in doing exactly that, with all their nonsensical censorship.

May they burn in Hell.

This is a super bs topic by the way. They weren't banned, they just refused to reprint them.

They refused to reprint them under Trump, so he is the one to blame, using the same logic.

And the refusal is an act of free enterprise, it's a private company making a decision. You prefer communism?

Good on them! :clap:



"The library, which serves Manhattan, the Bronx, and Staten Island, said it does not censor books and will keep the controversial titles in circulation until they are no longer in suitable shape to lend out, a spokeswoman said.

“As with all public libraries the New York Public Library does not censor books,” library spokeswoman Angela Montefinise said.





I admire what they are doing but unfortunately this is not a true statement:

“As with all public libraries the New York Public Library does not censor books,”

Many public libraries under control of DemoKKKrat city councils or mayors have indeed censored books that do not adhere to leftist orthodoxy. They also persecute the authors, publishers, distributors, and retailers of those books. Classic fascism from the left, as we have come to expect now.

Wow...this is just amazing.

Now watch...some liberal book burning Nazis will destroy the Dr Suess books somehow.
Wrong.

This is a lie.

The titles are being unilaterally discontinued by the publisher, having nothing to do with ‘liberals.’

The notion that ‘liberals’ advocate for book burning is also a lie.
You loons are are in the midst of culture cancel and you expect us to believe that?

Fckn dumbass, canceling Dr Seuss? Beyond dumbfckery
Dumbass? The dumbasses are the ones saying liberals or anyone is trying to cancel Dr Seuss. It is the publisher who did this, no grouop, no other person.

What a load of shit. They were pressured. You think they just decided out of the blue?

Seems to me Mark Twain thanked the New York Public Library for banning Huck Finn as it generated a lot more sales for him.
I have never understood bannings of "Huckleberry Finn". The people who do it must either have not read it, or not been literate enough to understand it.
