The GQP thinks that they are somehow winning the Cancel Culture Wars with Dr. Seuss:
The House Republicans’ campaign arm is offering donors copies of the Dr. Seuss classic “The Cat in the Hat,” seeking to capitalize on a new front in the culture war.
The Cat-in-the-Hat was not one of the books that were pulled from print, geniuses. Reading comprehension, which the Seuss books promotes, is kinda missing here.
Why it matters: The offer, while gimmicky, shows how potent appeals to “cancel culture” can be for grassroots Republicans, even amid debates about more weighty policy matters like coronavirus relief and voting rights.
What’s happening: The National Republican Congressional Committee is sending the books to donors who give $25 to GOP efforts to retake the House….
The potency of this particular flashpoint was evident Thursday morning, when 11 of the top 12 best-selling books on Amazon were Dr. Seuss works.
Of course there’s no evidence that the GQP can read, but I know: whatever it takes to own the libs (or to think they do).
When I checked the Amazon best selling books list, the Lorax was #9, so I have great hope that these evil geniuses are about to learn about climate change.
