'Racist' Dr. Seuss Mural to Be Removed from Massachusetts Museum

Kristin TateRebel Buzz Contributor

Dr. Seuss is now deemed "offensive" and all art depicting his stories must be pulled down… Because racist 

A mural displayed at the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum in Springfield, Mass., which has been deemed offensive, may find a new home. … The museum said Thursday the mural will be replaced after three children's authors  —  Mo Willems, Mike Curato and Lisa Yee — said it contains a "jarring racial stereotype." 

"We recently learned that a key component of this institution honoring Dr. Seuss features a mural depicting a scene from his first book, 'And to Think That I Saw It on Mullberry Street,' and within the selected art is a jarring racial stereotype of a Chinese man, who is depicted with chopsticks, a pointed hat and slanted slit eyes," they said in a letter. "We find this caricature of 'the Chinaman' deeply hurtful, and we have concerns about children's exposure to it."  

They declined and invite to the museum's inaugural Children's Literature Festival, which was set for Oct. 14 before being canceled. After the museum offered to take down the mural, the authors said they would attend, but the museum has not said if the festival is back on. 

Political correctness has gotten to the point where children's stories, which have been beloved for generations, are now considered offensive.  

The Dr. Seuss outraged was fueled last month, when a Massachusetts librarian rejected a donation of books from First Lady Melania Trump. The librarian, who has dressed up as Dr. Seuss characters herself in the past, called the children's author "racist."  

Former First Lady Michelle Obama read Dr. Seuss books to crowds of children on numerous occasions when her husband was president. Was the children's author racist back then? Where are the demands for Mrs. Obama to apologize for being insensitive?  

Bottom line: Outrage from the left has become tiresome. Nearly anything can be perceived as offensive. And if the left continues to ban and censor everything, we will be left with a society void of color and culture.

Glenn – you know it’s about controlling the language for malevolent political purpose.

You may call it “racist” but I call it contrairian
To scoff at the audacious mendacious librarian
To slander our Seuss as if he were Goebbels
Is the jollies of anuses who like condoms and gerbils

To have such gall when you do not have standing
Is to be overbearing in what you’re demanding
And while I am gobsmacked at your audacity
I have to admire your exemplary tenacity

So bring down to your level our once sacred university
Bring it down to the depths of decadence and perversity
Then have the gall to say it was in the name of diversity

Take a way Seuss’s love of the beauty of words
Malign it as the mark of geeks and nerds
Yes take away from our children this literary treasure
And give them the two things that gave william s burroughs such pleasure

Take away all our best who reached for the sublime
And give them the nihilists who celebrate crime
Give them pimps and drug dealers who chant Skeltonian rhyme

Do SJW’s ever actually get out and experience life? It seems all they do is live on their smartphones and only get out to complain or stop others from enjoying life.

Maurice Potvin, great post.

Tammie, if SJWs couldn’t find something to be outraged and offended about, their lives would be meaningless. Pointing out the perceived sins and foibles of others is the ONLY thing that gives their lives meaning and purpose. That’s why I don’t pay too much attention to them. If I have any emotional reaction at all, it’s not outrage, it’s pity. I don’t expect anything else from them. The one exception, of course, is when their misplaced outrage directly impacts one’s quality of life…. then you have to fight back.
