I'll ask him in my next seance.

Damn, I think that would be a great idea for a Seuss inspired poem!

Actually, this thread is about Dr. Seuss.

Please get a grip.


I love how Bidenistas deem to tell other people about "reality". Establishment democrats are as far off topic and in China's pocket as you can get.

To all the leftist supporting digital book burning, with a 1000 bullshit excuses, ...you should know...Book burners are never and I mean never the "good" guys. No matter how much authoritarian rationale you swallow, if you support censorship of any kind, you are a Nazi. Democrats were Nazis in the 30s, then they redeemed themselves but now they have returned to their speech suppression, segregation, and violent ways, ...with a big shit eating grin on their faces. We are currently under state and internet Nazi rule. That is why they call Republicans Nazis... To cover their crimes. However, the whole world sees their bullshit.

Antifa- not racist
Dr. Seuss- racist

This is about destroying tradition and morals. International socialists stated this goal a hundred years ago. Modern neo liberals follow that doctrine like sheep. Why claiming everyone else is "off topic".

crimsin said:good morning I think these are sad days in America
things are beginning to be censored, erased
with calls of bigotry in the air
there is not a race that hasn't faced this in some way
it isn't fair but it is...

we have politicians who say they will make positive changes and lie
kids in cages on the borders
California still in lock down apparently until we go bankrupt
all the while they're asking Texas to fund the border problem

Dr. Suess I don't know if he was a racist or a realist
we were at war with the Japanese when he wrote said books I hear...

America is calling for a cultureless, historyless society
I love all the diversity of color and culture...

neuter, neutrality I think we are headed for trouble and more trouble


America is not calling for censorship... Establishment leftists are. Not a single conservative has called for censorship of history, literature and modern events. Democrats in Washington and leftist tech oligarchs are the ONLY ones cheering on suppression. This is because they can use race and other factors as a means to silence their enemies. A Trotskyite tactic used by clever cowards.

I am so so very glad I am not a bitch that thinks it is ok to call "the muppets" racist while throwing green eggs and ham upon the gas fire just because my slave master said so....

At least we know who to blame for the destruction of America-- Bidenistas and their mental slaves on the democrat plantation....

Have you seen my Blowfish
in your crystal ball?
I'm looking for my Blowfish
I searched every room and hall

I searched up in the attic
I searched down in the cellar
I even searched in the dictionary
because I'm such a bad speller!

Since when did anyone have the right not to be offended? It's a simple choice - humans are sovereign beings and anyone can choose to be offended or not to be offended.

I don’t think ‘offended” is a choice, it’s a feeling which is involuntary. I think the trouble occurs when people ‘choose’ to be offended


praps someone could clarify / verify / testify to what feeling offended actually feels like

Josh, yes; everyone has the right to be offended or not REMAIN offended by their own choice; however, that isn't the issue. The issue here is how that offense is projected onto others in a toxic manner, thus violating the personal rights and choices of others.

Thanks, Anna

I have taken some punches into the stomach. they can be quite sore.

so, let’s say for example I open a book and an illustration punches me in the stomach. feels sore for maybe three minutes then goes away.

why is that any one else’s problem



I think my point might be “offence” as it is today is a very modern feeling which I think doesn’t actually exist

and I think you just proved it to me. but I dunno how to articulate my findings

well please do not take this offensively but i will try to relate this to you personally

if dear old Seuss wrote a poem that included the word “pikey” and an illustration of two gormless fellas stealing scrap metal, would you be happy with that being circulated as a shining example of history and culture?

would you want your young kids reading that and becoming painfully aware too young that this is how they are seen in the eyes of the world

I’m not from the travelling community...

i do have some dealings with some who are. only two weeks ago I was in a house doing such dealings when one of them showed me a video and without thinking I said quite loudly “ahh you dirty fuckin knacker”.

not gonna lie, I thought they were gonna knock the shit outta me. but they didn’t take offence. I was very lucky I didn’t offer any

you are aware that pikey is used to refer to irish in general by the ignorant of course

honestly if you can’t see the potential problem with perpetuating stereotypes unless it’s personally your problem i think that is the end of our conversation today
