If you don’t know Paul Harvey, you are young and have missed a great life. He is famous for his saying, “And now, for the rest of the story!” After which he would tell fascinating stories and news items you would never hear anywhere else.

Here he tells you what he would do if he were the Devil. Hang on to your pitchfork, and tell me if all he says has not happened already! He gave this prophetic talk in 1965, so yes, he was a prophet.

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….

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 […]

Musings on the Greatest Danger to the West and Freedom-Loving Democracies

February 3, 2021

In discussion with a friend, I wrote the following and thought I would share it. Of course, the greatest danger is our own selves as we abandon the Judeo-Christian worldview and increasingly adopt a Marxist, Materialist, Humanist perspective. But, these musings are related to outside dangers which become relevant mainly because of our shift away […]

Transitioning away from Twitter & Facebook: Join me at Gab

January 27, 2021

As I transition away from Twitter and Facebook, join me at Gab (which is BETTER than Twitter) and run by a faithful Christian and not dependent on subversive Big Tech. He is building his own platform and services. He does not track or make money off data from his customers. It is a free service with […]

What to think about the Pope and his comments of Civil Unions for Homosexuals

October 22, 2020

This morning I had prepared to wax eloquent about the recently revealed comments by Pope Francis and the confusion and dismay they are causing with faithful Catholics and the jubilant “hurrays” coming from the  Catholics who would love to Church to fit the modern world. Remember that GK Chesterton said, “The Catholic Church is the […]

What Every Catholic Needs to Know about “Black Lives Matter”

September 20, 2020

by Dave Durand September 1, 2020  Published in Legatus Magazine “What does it mean when a CEO says, “we support Black Lives Matter?” On the surface, it appears the company affirms the dignity and equality of Black people.

An economics professor made a statement that she had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class.

The Catholic Church: the First Abolitionist, Church Never Endorsed Slavery

July 28, 2020

Crisis Magazine has come out with a good and insightful article debunking the idea that the Catholic Church endorsed and promoted slavery. The modern anti-Christian, anti-history narrative takes it for granted that the Church was either a promoter of slavery, or at best complicit or it turned a blind eye. This article by Paul Kengor […]
