Dr. Seuss has now been cancelled by the far-left.
A total of six Dr. Seuss books will stop being published for containing “racist” and insensitive images.
The decision to take the book off the shelves came from Dr. Seuss Enterprises after months of discussions on whether they should pull the books or not.
The books that will be pulled are “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” “If I Ran the Zoo,” “McElligot’s Pool,” “On Beyond Zebra!,” “Scrambled Eggs Super,” and The Cat’s Quizzer.
Dr. Seuss had a long history of publishing racist and anti-Semitic work. Now, six of his books will no longer be published because they "portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong," the business that preserves the author's legacy says. https://t.co/XSGve2ur0d

Dr. Seuss’ “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” is being cancelled because of one of his cartoons depicted an Asian person wearing a conical traditional hat, and using chopsticks.
If you ever been to South East Asia the conical hat is very popular and so is using chop sticks.
I guess that’s too raw for the far-left to lay their eyes on so they have to censor it.
ABC News had more to the story:
Six Dr. Seuss books — including “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” and “If I Ran the Zoo” — will stop being published because of racist and insensitive imagery, the business that preserves and protects the author’s legacy said Tuesday.
“These books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong,” Dr. Seuss Enterprises told The Associated Press in a statement that coincided with the late author and illustrator’s birthday.
“Ceasing sales of these books is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr. Seuss Enterprises’ catalog represents and supports all communities and families,” it said.
The other books affected are “McElligot’s Pool,” “On Beyond Zebra!,” “Scrambled Eggs Super!,” and “The Cat’s Quizzer.”
The decision to cease publication and sales of the books was made last year after months of discussion, the company, which was founded by Seuss’ family, told AP.
Now 6 Dr. Seuss books are cancelled too?
When history looks back at this time it will be held up as an example of a depraved sociopolitical purge driven by hysteria and lunacy

Biden even decided to eliminate Dr. Seuss from the “Read Across America Day ” proclamation, a tradition that was held by President Trump and Obama.
The Washington Examiner reported Biden’s cancellation of Dr. Seuss:
The White House is distancing itself from Dr. Seuss after President Biden snubbed the author in his first “Read Across America Day” proclamation.
Biden’s omission, a departure from former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, coincides with Dr. Seuss Enterprises announcing Tuesday it would stop publishing and licensing six of Theodor Seuss “Ted” Geisel’s books because of racist undertones.
Biden’s “Read Across America Day” proclamation was drafted by the Education Department, according to White House press secretary Jen Psaki. She directed further questions to that department but described the day as being aimed at promoting “a love of reading among our nation’s youngest leaders.” Read Across America Day falls on what would have been Seuss’s birthday.
Tucker Carlson had a good take on the Dr. Seuss debacle:
Dr. Seuss was never a major literary figure, but his memory matters more than ever. The battle over what Dr. Seuss stood for — over what it means to be racist — will have consequences that extend for generations. If we lose that battle, America is lost. pic.twitter.com/PXzBABcRJv
