First Lady Melania Trump gave an Elementary school some Dr. Seuss books for National Read a Book Day. The liberal lunatic librarian rejected the books based on the strange assumption the Dr. Seuss was a racist.
PROBLEM: Internet never forgets…and the virtue signaling librarian had posted pictures of herself two year ago on Twitter wearing, you guessed it, a ‘Cat in the Hat’ outfit.

Via The Gateway Pundit…
The librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro said the Dr. Seuss books the First Lady was donating were racist.
She is an Obama supporter — as you can see from her library propaganda.
CBS News reported:
A librarian at the Cambridgeport Elementary School in Massachusetts is declining a shipment of books from first lady Melania Trump.
One school from each state was chosen by the White House to receive 10 Dr. Seuss books as part of National Read a Book Day, CBS Boston reports.
“Getting an education is perhaps the most important and wondrous opportunity of your young lives,” Trump said in a letter to the children who will be receiving books.
The school’s librarian, Liz Phipps Soeiro, wrote a lengthy editorial for the Horn Book’s Family Reading blog explaining why her school does not need the books.
Liz Phipps Soeiro wrote an editorial in the local paper calling Dr. Seuss a racist.
Yearly per-pupil spending in Cambridge is well over $20,000; our city’s values are such that given a HUGE range in the socioeconomic status of our residents, we believe that each and every child deserves the best free education possible and are working hard to make that a reality (most classrooms maintain a 60/40 split between free/reduced lunch and paid lunch). This offers our Title I school and the district a lot of privilege and room for programming and pedagogy to foster “high standards of excellence.” Even so, we still struggle to close the achievement gap, retain teachers of color, and dismantle the systemic white supremacy in our institution. But hell, we test well! And in the end, it appears that data — and not children — are what matters…
Another fact that many people are unaware of is that Dr. Seuss’s illustrations are steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes. Open one of his books (If I Ran a Zoo or And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, for example), and you’ll see the racist mockery in his art.
It appears that Ms. Soeiro thinks Dr. Seuss is racist because First Lady Melania Trump was involved. In the end its all about Trump, not about Dr. Seuss.
