I would suggest watching this video and read this article to get a good idea of where our country is at this moment and what we need to do. Marxism is on the march and Communism is on the horizon.

“When socialists try to conquer a country they first demoralize people and make them feel that it is impossible to resist or fight back, said author and filmmaker Trevor Loudon, who has been researching radical and terrorist groups and their covert influence on mainstream politics for more than 30 years.

“However, people who love their country, uphold the Constitution, and traditional values make up the majority in America, representing the most economic power and the most votes, Loudon told The Epoch Times. They can win if they join forces to resist socialism in a peaceful way, he said.

Screen Shot 2021-03-06 at 11.16.56 AM“When socialists carry out a revolution they try to demoralize people, shock them, make people feel there is no hope and little point in standing up against it, Loudon said.

“But a lot of this is based on bluff,” he added, saying that the majority of people in America love their country and its Constitution, they love God and want the best for their families. Those people “are still by far the majority in this country, they still have the most economic buying power, they still have the most votes.”

“If this majority realizes that they have right on their side, then when they fight without resorting to violence they can prevail, Loudon explained. “The only way we can lose this is if we give up, and that’s what they’re trying to make us do,” he added.”

Here he is praying the Angelus with our daughter. This is way to cute. We had to share it.

It is precisely the wholesomeness and remarkably wide popularity of Dr. Seuss that makes him a likely and effective target of the woke movement.

Yesterday, Dr. Suess books held 23 of the top 30 bestsellers on Amazon. Not everyone has gone mad. We loved these books when our kids were young, and still do to this day for our grandkids.

Today you cannot find these six banned books on Amazon, and one of them is selling used for $750.

****************************************

donttreadHere is Noelle Mering’s excellent article from Catholic World News (support them here)

“It is hard to keep up with the cancellations these days, but for various reasons the news of Dr. Seuss struck a nerve. The Associated Press reported this week that six Dr. Seuss books “including And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street and If I Ran the Zoo — will stop being published because of racist and insensitive imagery.”

School districts “across the country have also moved away from Dr. Seuss,” the AP reported, with one school district in Virginia referencing how recent “research” has “revealed strong racial undertones in many books written/illustrated by Dr. Seuss…” And the Wall Street Journal now reports that Ebay is “sweeping” its site in order to delist the offending books.

Meanwhile, President Biden deemed Dr. Seuss to be unmentionable on Read Across America Day on March 2—a day intentionally celebrated on the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel (1904-1991). A USA Today story couched the absence of Dr. Seuss in Biden’s proclamation in the most benign terms possible: “The NEA has pivoted from popular children’s author Dr. Seuss to a focus on diverse children’s books.”

And then there is the news that Mr. Potato Head will no longer be a “mister”, but will instead answer to the “gender-neutral” name “Potato Head.” Hasbro, which introduced the toy in 1952, says it is “making sure all feel welcome in the Potato Head world by officially dropping the Mr. from the Mr. Potato Head brand name and logo to promote gender equality and inclusion…”

There is something absurd about these news stories that cuts both right and left. That a classic children’s toy must conform to gender ideology or that a beloved children’s author must have his legacy clouded with racism strikes conservatives as both ridiculous and merciless. Their response in protest is then portrayed by those on the Left as unserious fear-mongers frothing in rage about a toy and a mere six books being removed from the shelves….

March 1, 2021

Rand Paul likens child sex-change procedures to ‘genital mutilation’ while grilling Biden’s transgender HHS nominee

February 25, 2021

As our country descends into the quagmire of insanity and ruined lives, moral and gender relativity and chaos, we better gird up our loins. We have a rough road ahead and Christians will become the scapegoats and accused of being “haters” and “bigots” and worse. Dr. Rachel Levine, who identifies as a transgender woman, is […]

15.9% of Generation Z’ers Self-Identify as LGBT says Gallup Poll

February 25, 2021

Hang on to your hats (and your kids). We are in for a bumpy ride! The LGBT agenda is front-and-center. It pushed in the media, made popular and lovable on TV and in movies and encouraged in the schools — even promoted by whacky priests accepted with extended meetings and handshakes from the Pope.  What do you […]
