Children’s books

Two children’s-book related stories here. The first School librarian rejects Melania Trump’s donation of ‘racist propaganda’ (aka Dr. Seuss books).

Earlier this month, the first lady sent out collections of 10 Dr. Seuss books to one school in each state to mark National Read a Book Day.

In a letter published on the Horn Book’s Family Reading blog, Cambridgeport Elementary School librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro said that her school wasn’t in need of the books, which included famous titles such as “The Cat in the Hat.”

“I work in a district that has plenty of resources, which contributes directly to ‘excellence,’” she wrote. “My students have access to a school library with over nine thousand volumes and a librarian with a graduate degree in library science.”

Instead, she wrote, the White House should worry more about providing support to schools that are underfunded and subject to government neglect.

“Why not go out of your way to gift books to underfunded and underprivileged communities that continue to be marginalized and maligned by policies put in place by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos?” she wrote.

A moron of the most typical kind, but now an icon of the left because of her vacuous hatreds based on nothing at all other than the emptiness in her life. But let us also recall this small touch at the end at the link:

Soeiro did not note that former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama both read Dr. Seuss books to children several times during their eight years in the White House.

There’s even more. She has even been photographed displaying The Cat in the Hat! which I have taken from Mark Steyn.

It’s not even hypocrisy. She is just a stupid woman with nothing else in her life other than the useless partisanship of her comrades on the left.

I suspect this would be more her kind of literature even though it’s not in English: New Swedish children’s book: Grandpa has four wives.

There’s a new world coming. In the meantime, if you are looking for some children’s literature, let me recommend Economics for Infants. I doubt it would make it past the librarian at Cambridgeport Elementary School even though she is in need of it more than most.

    Ain’t multikulti grand!

    Hahaha, “…a librarian with a graduate degree in library science”.

    If you need a degree to be a librarian, you have failed the species.

    Just another dime a dozen low IQ hater.

    Grandpa has four wives, one is aged nine and another is twelve. None of them retain their clitoris.

  5. Marcus Classis

    Cannot wait for the next best-selling Swedish kiddies books for pre-pubescent 9 year old moppets: “How to f*ck and suck your 55 year old husband”, to be followed by “How to be a good chattel”, ” Beatings: Why you Deserve it” and “Having babies at 12, a practical guide to married kids having kids”

    Another piece of evidence demonstrating that leftists have zero concern for the well being of the most vulnerable and marginalised.

    A leftist is always a phoney altruist.

    Grandpa has four wives. He has no idea what they look like because they wear sacks.

    Lol, thanks Steve I’ll put it on the xmas list 🙂 I’m not sure that tantrums at the lolly shop or at the Spider-Man shelf will stop even if put into context, but it’s worth a try. On the other hand, I don’t feel like starting a trade war with China 🙂

    Graduate in library science – tertiary education for a librarian that may be the first problem

  10. Norman Church

    Pfft. Derivative piffle. Let her enjoy her promotion to Corporal (Second class) of the PC Signalling Corp. This excrement is so pervasive that one doesn’t ever bother to wipe the feet anymore.

    Grandpa has four wives. They are all his first cousins. Look up “interbreeding” some time.

  12. Whatever happened to courtesy, appreciation, and recognising an opportunity to help others.
    “Thank you. What a great and generous idea. Our school is fortunate in not needing this assistance so we will pass them on to another local school with budget shortfalls. Again, thank you.”

  13. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Grandpa has four wives.

    This is fun. Can anyone play? Grandpa has four wives. Their total ages amount to forty eight years. Grandpa is 60. What’s that word that starts with “P” and ends in “##ophile” again?

  14. I am the Walras, Equilibrate, and Price-Take

    Sweet Jesus on a bike. I can’t fathom this madness.

    A entire civilisation brought low by addled-brained cat ladies. It will be a miracle if we make it to the other side intact.

    A Librarian finds a reason to reject Melania’s books so she can attack Trump.

    A Puerto Rico mayor finds time, in the middle of a natural disaster, to print t-shirts with partisan slogans so she can attack Trump.

    Just another day of childish hysteria by the Resistance.

  16. struth

    A degree in library science?
    You couldn’t make this shit up.

    I am a bit concerned.
    This story has given me the shits and I have no degree in arse wiping.

  17. Bad Samaritan

    The tide is clearly running in Trump’s favour. Pittsburgh and Denver have now ordered their employees: those multi-millionaire NFL meatheads…..to stand for the US Anthem in future. The Green Bay Packers have received a massive fan backlash and will be dropping the SJW palaver ASAP.

    Now…let’s hope the NRL GF sees the QWERTY rapper soundly booed, eh?

    BTW. How long is it that US leftist have been fawning over “jocks” and their inane utterances and performances? How dumbed down must they have become to swoon for what some brain-damaged ghetto cretin says, or does, politically on a football field? FFS.

  18. Gbees

    As an engineer and scientist I hate that degrees get labeled science. What the hell is library science and for that matter political science? The word science has been prostituted and not more so than in climate science!

    “Grandpa has four wives. He has no idea what they look like because they wear sacks.”

    A horror story that keeps coming into mind every time the left makes another move on removing the rights of women on behalf of Islam. Some years back the Saudi blogger The Religious Policeman reported a recently awarded divorce. From the day this poor woman had married no one had seen her face let alone her body. As was her habit, after all had left in the morning she took off her face covering to eat breakfast. Her husband returned unexpectedly and she didn’t hear him coming. He saw her screamed and abused her for being an old woman. Then he divorced her.

    Just the thing for the Quiggster!

  21. Linden

    That just means that you place the books in alphabetical order under the title name, I can remember the old school librarian explaining that way back in the 60s’ But I suppose if you have a graduate degree in library science then that means it has taken you a lot longer to grasp the concept of this simple cataloging method, because you have spent years at university trying to work it out, and when you finally do, they say gee well done, here take this scroll it’s your proof that you finally do understand how it works After all a chappy named Dewey worked this out in 1876 according to a google search on the subject lol

  22. Steve;

    Surely the leaders of Sweden are indulging in Cultural Genocide?

  23. Boambee John

    Good point.

    We should make this accusation to all supporters of large scale Third World immigration.

    The left will not become less irrational (to the extent that this might be possible) until they feel the burn of their own rhetoric and inane slogans.

  24. Louis Hissink

    Wasn’t Seuss’s books thinly veiled progressive indoctrination?

  25. cui bono

    Library science? Take one can of alphabet soup………

    To show one has value to the people that matter
    said the catter who natters as his family splatters
    strike a pose I suppose and pretend that your nose
    doesn’t detect or reject the eject that flows
    from one’s own moronity
    (that’s a word, though absurd):
    a silly fragility to reality that shows
    to all but oneself (an A.L.F. without stealth),
    a chump with a hump,
    a lump of a dump,
    (certainly no Trump)
    all hail, prevail,
    set sail to Greatness,
    it’s late, yes,
    but fate yet,
    stands, yes STANDS,
    for Pride
    (no rhymes this time),
    Dignity, and
    Self Respect.
    We spit on ourselves when we
    spit on others.
    (Recycling bodily fluids is NOT the next ‘thing’).

    Wasn’t Seuss’s books thinly veiled progressive indoctrination?

    The Lorax is a story about a farmer who cuts down his entire orchard to make a quick buck… as we are led to believe that farmers have done for thousands of years (that’s how civilization got this far, by destroying all our capital stock). Because don’t you know, only a creature who pops up out of nowhere claiming to “speak for the trees” (although providing no particular evidence that it does in fact speak for anyone other than itself) can be trusted to run a farm.

    Personally I have no problem with Seuss being kicked out of school libraries, but if we have learned anything it would be that hiding bad ideas does not make them go away. If it’s a bad idea, then there should be a good idea somewhere that can explain why the first idea is bad. Show the kids the good idea… please!

    Wouldn’t work for France. Per Emmanuel Macron, there is no French culture to commit crimes against. Not sure how the Swedes feel.

    While we’re talking about burqas, that’s not even close to being an issue in Tajikistan:

    As of January, 2016, as part of an “anti-radicalisation campaign”, police in the Khatlon region reportedly shaved the beards of 13,000 men and shut down 160 shops selling the hijab. Shaving beards and discouraging women from wearing hijab is part of a government campaign targeting trends that are deemed “alien and inconsistent with Tajik culture”, and “to preserve secular traditions”.

    From Wikipedia.

    Tajikistan, by the way, is 98% Muslim. Someone should tell George Brandis.

    The librarian may be ungracious, but so are many who have posted here.

  31. Awake

    Hatred underpins leftism.

  32. Louis Hissink

    No, envy underpins leftism.

  33. Zatara

    Surely the leaders of Sweden are indulging in Cultural Genocide?

    The quisling leaders of Sweden surrendered to the muslims long ago. It’s all over but the crying.

    Saudi King Salman has issued a decree giving women the right to drive for the first time from next year. Not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but should Trump get some credit here? President Trump made Saudi Arabia his first overseas trip, and the Saudi royals loved it.

    The Saudis also need to give us the road crash data for the next few years.

  35. Mother Lode

    So she objected to the ten add Seuss books. Not necessary? School has enough books? Other schools are more needy?

    At some point her library had ten less books. Did her studies teach her that 9,000 books is the right number? Did she divert incoming books to under funded schools? Is it possible that Melania chose her school for a reason other than satisfying the librarian.

    Oh, and what does Madame Librarian advise? More federal government involvement in local schools.

    Brilliant!

    Thank you [email protected] – the only sensible and tasteful response to an unfortunate incident in a sea of distasteful and goulish reactions from a bunch of right wing zealots just as ugly and repugnant as the loonie lefties they despise.
