(a parody of HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS)
by Laura Ainsworth
Every kid down in Kidville liked reading a LOT
But the Left, who controlled education, did NOT!
They wouldn’t say why, but we all know one reason:
To read the wrong book means you’re guilty of treason
They also just hated the folks on the Right
They said we’re oppressors –- at least, if we’re white
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that their brains were two sizes too small
Whatever the reason, their brains or their hate
They cancelled the books that they deemed out of date
They stared at the kids from their i-vory tower
While focusing all of their brainwashing power
“We can’t let them read Dr. Seuss!” they’d exclaim
We have to get started erasing his name
We’ll target six books with some troublesome art
While keeping in mind that it’s only the start
“Kids LOVE Dr. Seuss!” said the folks on the Right
They knew they were facing a censorship fight
“He taught children how to be loving and kind
And how they could grow up to be ‘color-blind’”
“Color-blind??!” screamed the left, their eyes practically bleeding
We MUST find a way to keep children from reading!
To think, the un-wokeness their minds could retain
They’re reading the Bible! They’re reading Mark Twain!
“And old Dr. Seuss, he’s the worst of the lot
If kids want to read him, we’ll say they must NOT!
We’ll say he’s a bigot and lacks credibility
And give all the children that book WHITE FRAGILITY
“We’ll find all the books that aren’t focused on race
And gather them up, and we’ll hide them someplace
We’ll substitute books that reflect our obsession
With transgender studies and racial oppression
The kids down in Kidville would all cry boo-hoo
When they found out what leftists decided to do
The fun books were gone, and they felt really feel sad
The white kids were taught they deserve to feel bad
But parents arose, they had had quite enough
They fought for their kids, and it got pretty rough
They went to the School Board, and all had their say
And their courage and heart grew three sizes that day!
They brought back the books that the left had rejected
And made sure that freedom of speech was protected
The books were all safe and were put to good use
And we, ourselves, honor the ones…by…Dr. Seuss!
I can’t think of any kind decent American who is against Civil Rights or Equality. An underpinning of our very existence as a country is “…all men are created equal, endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights…” What’s not to embrace in those words? But when politicians start re-defining what equal or a “right” means, the very meaning of such words are turned inside out and with it our culture and our country.
President Biden has made the passage of the so-called Equality Act to be one of his highest priorities. Sounds pretty innocuous since equality is a good thing. But the Equality Act, introduced last year by Nancy Pelosi is not as it sounds. It adds 2 new designations the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which was and remains landmark legislation to end racial discrimination in voting, housing, employment, and participation in civic affairs. The Equality Act would add sexual orientation and gender identity to classes of protected civil rights. This is not a minor adjustment. This would mean that a person who declares oneself to be homosexual or transgender would be given protections given to those who are biologically black or Asian, Native American or female, or who despite being a biological male, would have to be treated as a biological female merely on the basis of declaring one’s gender as female.
While you may think this doesn’t concern you, think again. If you are a business owner, you could lose your business license and be prosecuted for a hate crime and/or discrimination for adhering to Biblical marriage standards and declining to print wedding invitations for a same-sex couple, or being a doctor and refusing to perform a double mastectomy and hysterectomy on a 14 year gender dysphoric girl who decides to “identify” as a boy. If her parents forbid the surgery, they could lose custody of their daughter. That actually happened to parents of a 17 year old girl in Ohio who refused to put their daughter on body altering testosterone when she wanted to be a boy.
Men would be allowed to sleep, shower, disrobe, and live with biological females at a battered women’s shelter. Men TSA agents who “identify” as women would perform strip searches on females. Churches would be forced to allow boys to occupy girls’ dorms and showers at church camps or Christian colleges. And boys who declare themselves to be girls are already participating in women’s sports, dominating the sports and demoralizing the women and destroying their chances of athletic scholarships.
And if I simply say, “God created male and female, and it says so in the Bible,” I could be sued for discrimination, lose whatever business I’m in, and be labeled guilty of a hate crime.
A teacher was fired for refusing to use masculine pronouns for a female student who wanted to be treated as a male. If you own a business that involves artistic expression, be it cooking, calligraphy, cake-decorating, or making t-shirts and decline expressing support for a gender transition party, you can be sued, charged with discrimination by the government and put out of business. The rights of a male pretending to be a woman will be protected, but your right seeking to actually live as a Christian will be eliminated.
You should contact your Senator, and tell them to stop stepping on the rights of some to give special rights to others in an insane unwillingness to follow science of basic biology. Here’s some science: There are two genders-male and female. We are assigned one in the womb at conception. We can have surgery and hormone therapies to change our physical features, but we can’t just make a declaration that we are something we are not and force the rest of the country to accept that as normal. And an act of Congress can change the law, but not even an act of Congress can re-write Scripture.
Here is the Sphinx’s first sponsored story—the sponsors are ( DEMOCRATS ) 4-letter-word Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, MSM,and Joe Biden. They killed these people, like hundreds of others each year. These deaths are a sad story, but unnecessary, they reopened the border to everyone.
The Derek Chauvin trial is scheduled for March 8. CNN needs to open a 24 hour special trial channel. BLM needs to stock up on Molotov Cocktails. I’m beginning to think that Pigleosi & Feinstein own a Barb/Razor wire company.
What will be Andy’s Fate ? Will judge sullivan make him eat a taco ?
Commie Sue is practicing for the trial.
The Roman Editor: What are you writing about, LL ?
Confused Cat: Why things happen.
I do believe in Fate. I saw it in one of the best TV series of all time.
All of the things like, fate, free will, luck, chance, probability, destiny, karma, etc., are pretty confusing for a cat. Another one is Astrology. Maybe Cassius was right.
This could be all of the above—who is sane enough to share the power to destroy the world. Have a committee, group, pod, class, team, or who ever ? You couldn’t get them to agree in the 5 minutes it takes an ICBM to kill everyone.
This is just a way to further neutralize America’s power.
The dems in Congress want to take over Presidential powers, and be Commander in Chief. They want us all to be equal.
Explanation: You can spot Mars in the evening sky tonight. Now home to the Perseverance rover, the Red Planet is presently wandering through the constellation Taurus, close on the sky to the Seven Sisters or Pleiades star cluster. In fact this deep, widefield view of the region captures Mars near its closest conjunction to the Pleiades on March 3. Below center, Mars is the bright yellowish celestial beacon only about 3 degrees from the pretty blue star cluster. Competing with Mars in color and brightness, Aldebaran is the alpha star of Taurus. The red giant star is toward the lower left edge of the frame, a foreground star along the line-of-sight to the more distant Hyades star cluster. Otherwise too faint for your eye to see, the dark, dusty nebulae lie along the edge of the massive Perseus molecular cloud, with the striking reddish glow of NGC 1499, the California Nebula, at the upper right.
Tomorrow’s picture: a little like Mars
