The Cambridge, Massachusetts, elementary school librarian who rejected Dr. Seuss books donated by first lady Melania Trump on the basis that the books were racist, among other things, appears to be about as hypocritical as it gets.
On Tuesday, librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro wrote a letter to the first lady explaining that she rejected the books because Dr. Seuss was “a bit of a cliché, a tired and worn ambassador for children’s literature.”
Phipps Soeiro then went on to explain how the Seuss books are “steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes” and then attempted to school the first lady by telling her what books would be better for the children.
But the hate seemed to have been directed more at the first lady than the actual books.
Imagine Phipps Soeiro’s embarrassment when a photo from 2015 emerged showed her decked out in a Cat in the Hat costume, holding a a Cat in the Hat doll in one hand and a “Green Eggs and Ham” book in the other hand — with a huge smile slapped across her face.
Apparently, Dr. Seuss was fine and dandy when President Barack Obama occupied the White House. But put the Trumps at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. and absolutely everything they do is wrong, racist, bigoted or just plain evil — even if it’s just trying to donatechildren’s books to a library.
If the librarian wasn’t humiliated by her own hypocrisy, her employer seemed to be.
Officials at Cambridge Public Schools are distancing themselves from the backlash over the librarian’s letter with a statement claiming the letter wasn’t an official school position and the school district “did not authorize any such statement,” Boston.com reported.
The school also said it “counseled” Phipps Soeiro on “all relevant policies, including donations policies and the policy against public resources being used for political purposes.”
There may be no amount of counseling that can help liberals like this librarian who is about as hypocritical as she is pretentious.
Sadly, Phipps Soeiro is just one example of the leftist lunatics that are indoctrinating our kids.
