Message of the Day – Wokieness, Private and Public

A new word, may you would spell it differently.

“If I Ran The Zoo” by Dr. Seuss.

First consider the taking of print of the six Dr. Seuss books.

Can’t say I remember ever reading any of them to our son, but someone must have found them threatening.

In our capitalist nation, people owning them offered to sell them on e-Bay.

Now e-Bay has say, “No, no.”

Too threatening. I guess.

But as National Review’s Dan McLaughlin notes

This is particularly absurd given that several of the books contain “offensive imagery” only in the most extenuated sense of irritating left-wing zealots.

You can still find plenty of listings on eBay for bongs, sex toys, provocative semi-nude photos of porn stars, old issues of Penthouse, framed covers of Hustler, handguns, rifles, swords, machetes, even copies of Mein Kampf, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and The Anarchist Cookbook. 

Tintin in the Congo is still for sale, and so is Chairman Mao’s Little Red Book.

But apparently, On Beyond Zebra is beyond the pale.

And Pajamas Media reports what the U.S. Attorney’s Office is doing in Portland, Oregon:

Under Biden Administration, Feds Dismiss Dozens of Charges Against Portland Rioters


As the Biden administration has taken the reins of the Department of Justice, the feds have dismissed dozens of charges against violent rioters in Portland, Oregon.

They have dropped charges such as assault on a law enforcement officer, arson, and other violent crimes.

Many have been dropped with prejudice, meaning they can’t be re-litigated in the future.

According to a local news outlet [KGW], federal prosecutors have dismissed more than one-third of the pending charges from last summer’s violent protests in Portland.

Portland, Oregon, riot.

The outgoing U.S. attorney for Oregon, Billy Williams, said in an interview that nobody in their right mind thinks this is OK.

The dismissals occurred, according to people interviewed, were probably because of lack of resources or insufficient evidence.

  1. What’s next – book burning ?

    Oh wait – no need to waste time burning them and adding to “global warming” problem when you
    can just “cancel” them, all in the name of “RAAAACISM” of course.

  2. Re : “Feds Dismiss Dozens of Charges Against Portland Rioters”

    This is under the recycled regime of Barak Hussein Obama now running things in DC and pulling the strings of the puppet and buffoon Biden.

    Democrat politicians around our nation want to defund police and give free rein to thugs and criminals.

    In Illinois a large contingent of Cook County Democrats sponsored a Bill that was approved by the legislature and then signed into law by the big fat guy. Police around the State of Illinois were highly critical of the Bill.

    So much going on by Democrat politicians to destroy our nation. Such as many of them openly welcoming and harboring illegal aliens. Sanctuary cities they call it.

    A proper slogan for the current regime in DC and fellow Democrat politicians in the States should be: We will make America into a third world communist country.

    In the 1950’s, USSR leader Kruchev said about the direction of the US:

    “We do not have to invade the United States, we will destroy you from within.”

  3. I believe it was the private publisher (Dr. Seuss Enterprises) which announced it would cease publication of 6 Dr. Seuss books, probably as a result of possible adverse market repercussions if it did not do so.

    Whatsa matter, don’t believe in free enterprise ?

    Aren’t folks entitled to boycott a publisher if they wish ?

    Isn’t a publisher entitled to withdraw a title from publication ?

    Think the 6 should be published ?

    Buy the rights to the 6 books and go to town.

    That’s the American way.

    By the way, isn’t this the second day of the new Trump term ?

  4. TDS is strong in this one.

    Trump lives rent free in his head and he can’t stop hearing Trump’s voice whispering to him “I’m

    in here, and you can not get rid of me”.

  5. I do not like your mental haze
    I do not like your leftist ways
    I do not like your son on blow
    I do not like you Creepy Joe

  6. Only these morons can now go after children books!

    First statues now baby books freedom for no one is there m.o.

  7. Bible will be next, but only after the Carl Sandburg, Bill Buckley and Dixon books are burned.
