Here's something you may find interesting. This girl interviews Trumpers at the "stop the steal" rally right before the insurrection. She asks them whether they think burning the American flag should be illegal. 70% of Trumpers think burning the American flag should be illegal.
Wait a minute, but I thought Trumpers were all for protecting American values like free speech? Oh that's right, you're only pro your
speech. How convenient.
I tried to bump the cancel culture thread with this, but I think it's hit the bump limit. So here's a new thread.
>>3604095>Because that's what you want to happen.
No what I'd like to happen is people stop being dicks to each other. Making a display of burning a flag is a dick move. Rather it's a fag flag, or an American flag or a French flag or whatever.
Free expression is free expression, and this is America and we have a right to be dicks. Just because I don't like a thing doesn't mean I think it should be banned. I'm not a lefty communist or pearl clutching Christian conservative soccer mom… So yeah,no… The we don't secure liberty by taking it from others.
>>3604068>they have a 6th since
6th what, since when?
One, the publishing company are not the owners of Dr. Seuss' work, they're the caretakers on behalf of his heirs and estate.
Two, for decades these works were read by everyone and it wasn't until the fake-woke cancel culture arrived that it was a problem.
Three, they're doing this because in addition to the Dr. Seuss titles, they publish other properties and are fearful the fake-woke culture will try to cancel their other products and thus impact their bottom line.
This isn't about exercising their property rights for which they have none, this is about the risk management department advising against continued publication for fear of a boycot. These guys are caretakers of Geisel's work because his wife is too old to do it on her own. She is the person he willed his work to. When she passes on, unless she wills it to another heir, it will then be bought by a corporate publisher and you will see all manner of perversions of his work on TV and movies.
Yeah okay, gut = weak? He's clearly still ripped as hell.
Thank you for proving that conservatives are delusional. That was classic. Could not have asked for a better example.
I like how he was also made harrier, like that's a bad thing. Fuckin' soys, man.
I'm not a conservative, numbnuts. I just call bullshit when I see it.>>3607991
Dude's probably some 18 year old twink.
Pretty sure Dr. Seuss Enterprises holds the copyright. His family seems to be on board with the decision. Who the hell knows what Dr. Seuss would have wanted? He lived in a different time. I think because of that, the books should be preserved and passed on. If you think seeing a dated stereotype is going to turn your kid into a racist, then don't buy those particular books.
This decision cheapens his legacy. Dr. Seuss the imperfect human is replaced with Dr. Seuss the brand. But these books belong to the people. Piracy and bootlegging are a thing, and they can't unsell all those books they sold.
Who knows, maybe Enterprises will print critical editions explaining why racism is super-duper bad in the margins. That seems to be the German's approach to dealing with "problematic" books. As obnoxious as that would be, still better than not printing the books at all I suppose.
>you will see all manner of perversions of his work on TV and movies
Have you not seen all those shitty live action Dr. Seuss movies?

Featuring two "victims" of cancel culture. One is a clinical psychologist, the other an evolutionary biologist. Enjoy.
>>3608096>This decision cheapens [Dr. Deuss'] legacy.
By removing racist imagery? You think his family wants racism as his legacy? No, they are embarrassed by these books.
They are embarrassed that racists like you are pointing out how racists their ancestor was.
You are embarrassing them. You are an embarrassment to yourself and everyone around you. Just do the world a favor and stop. Stop being a Hillary.
Just go away.
We don't want you here anymore. You are not welcome in America. Shut up or get out.
Ironic that conservatives are so obsessed over cancel-culture in social media and book stores but don't seem to give a shit that the GOP is canceling their ability to vote in elections. https://youtu.be/qdkcPFcblHA
Leftists little melted down and demanded a toy maker change a toy because they didn't like the gender of a plastic potato.
They cancelled Dr. Seuss' first goddamn book
because pic related. You say this is racist. How? He's wearing Chinese clothes and eating with Chinese utensils. Yeah, maybe that clothing style is dated, but so what? He fits right in with the rest of the crowd. He even has the exact same posture of the magician in front of him. Not racist.
Actually, isn't that traditional Japanese
footwear - geta? Hmm… Maybe he did confuse his East Asian nationalities.
why are conservatives so anti-free speech?
Oh, wait, you get to cancel us, but somehow we don't get to cancel you? We are magically prevented somehow from doing so? Sorry cupcake, it doesn't work that way.
So you don't like it when we do a little bit to you of what you've been doing to us all along? Tough, you own it.

You keep blaming "The left" and "Cancel Culture" but both of these things were done by the corporations because they realize it makes them more money to appeal to more than white-racists.
This isn't woke-culture, this is capitalism.
Dolla-dolla-bills, ya'll! White people ain't enough.
They want every dollar from every kind of minority and they are all throwing the white supremacist under the bus.
Those corporations know you are a tiny, tiny, broke ass, poor as shit, worthless, dickless bunch of cucks who aren't going to be giving your kid's toys or reading to your kids.
You ain't gonna have kids, no one will fuck you, and half of you dumb-ass mother fuckers can't read.
The only people canceling those books or Potatoe head were private corporations trying to make more money.
Desantis works for the government, that is the difference.
The government isn't allowed to cancel free speech unless it is a direct threat to life. Teaching kids that white people aren't perfect isn't a direct threat to life. It's only a direct threat to you snowflake's fragile egos.

No, these corporations were beset upon by the left woke culture. You can cruise any troon group, or LGBT group online and find the creatures there talking about these things. "Wouldn't it be cool if Barbie was trans? Why doesn't the company make a trans Barbie? They're bigots that's why, here's the contact information for _______, let get them non binary gender kins!"
Mr Potato Head being a man, and having a wife? What? No LGBT option? Yes, this is the sort of thing these cultists actively cruise for.
No, CEO Piggy sitting in his corner office, didn't come up with the idea that "Hey, know what will make us millions? Changing the gender on the talking potato doll! Yep! That's the ticket! The cash will pour in if we mess with the gender of this toy!"
>>3609060>No, these corporations were beset upon by the left woke culture.
No, they weren't. The odd person has complained about those Dr. Suess books off and on for DECADES and they ignored it.
The corporation made the calculation that selling the books with racist content was more profitable than not selling them because white people were an overwhelming majority of their customer base but times have changed.
White people have lost their exclusive control over economic and political power. These corporations see the writing on the wall and they took these actions to get ahead of the wave of progress.
White people are going to be a minority. Businesses can't prosper by serving them exclusively. It's just a fact. It's happening everywhere. It's biology. There is no stopping it.
Whiteness was always just a crazy cult belief that can't be maintained. It's doomed to failure just like everything else conservatives embrace.
Let me ask conservatives:
What do you think whiteness is?
How do you define it?
Stop and think about it.
What is your definition of whiteness?
>>3609052>This isn't woke-culture, this is capitalism.
Technically, it's crony capitalism.
Under crony capitalism, the corporations partner with the state to hurt their competition with regulations, and help themselves with subsidies and cheap loans etc.
Even though the corporations practically own the state, they have to pretend that the state is for the people, so they have to go along with whatever social movement you have going on at the moment. If it's gay rights, all the corporations put up rainbow flags to say "we're on the right side of things, we're your buddies.", and in fact they benefit from raising public ire against companies who don't. After all, if some private small business refuses to bake a gay wedding cake, or makes a toy doll that isn't gender neutral, the corporations can point a finger at them and tell the public: "Look, they're being bigoted, not us. Cancel them! Buy from us!".
That's right: the woke culture is corporations.
>>3609064>What do you think whiteness is?
You should know, since you keep trying to cancel white people.
>>3609064>throwing the white supremacist under the bus
But Dr. Seuss wasn't a white supremacist; he was a liberal.>>3609064
Not a conservative, but I've never heard them use the term "whiteness". I only hear terminology like that and "white fragility" coming from the far left, because they have a sick compulsion to play the identity politics game. It's a stupid game.
Scouring the bowels of the Internet!
English protestant ethic/culture, and I strongly dispute that it is inherent or exclusive to white people.
When SJWs say whiteness, they don't mean the race, they mean the culture. Ascribing culture to race is incredibly racist, ironically.
These are all what you think other
people think, whiteness is. The question is, what do you
think it is?
How do you
define whiteness as a conservative? Do you even know?
At 78 years old. I'm surprised he doesn't need a walker much less can climb stairs.
Can't wait till Kamala replaces him then we can make fun of her instead. Picking on Biden feels like kicking a kid in a wheel-chair.
>>3609074>But Dr. Seuss wasn't a white supremacist; he was a liberal.
Revolution is eating its children. Film at 11.
>>3609078>The question is, what do you think it is?
What I think of this or that has no bearing on social matters. What WE think of things is what defines our mutual relationship to them - that is called a social construct. Our mutual agreement defines what is mutually real to us, and this in turn defines how we all will interact.
In other words, what I think is "white" has no meaning as an answer to your question, because the meaning of the answer depends on what you want to read into it.
I'll tell you exactly what whiteness means as soon as you explain how Dr. Seuss' books are racist. How is showing a Chinese man eating with sticks in any way detrimental? I
eat with sticks sometimes. Sometimes chopsticks are the right tool for the job. But it used to be a curiosity to western audiences. It's honestly refreshing to see how something as mundane as eating with chopsticks can be viewed with curiosity.
>>3609079>At 78 years old. I'm surprised he doesn't need a walker much less can climb stairs.
Nah, that's for the poor folks who got worn out by work and easily treated diseases. If you've never done an honest day's work in your life, you don't have the sort of worn ligaments and arthritis that makes you bend over.
>>3609063>White people have lost their exclusive control over economic and political power
Ahhh…so there is no systemic racism.
We are done here.
You forget: the enemies of fascists are "strongweak".
>“By a continuous shifting of rhetorical focus, the enemies are at the same time too strong and too weak.”
-Umberto Eco on fascism
Systemic racism by powerful whites exists simultaneously with the idea that whites have lost control. They're losing, and their loss is justified by the reason that they're winning.

Run and tell all of the angels
This could take all night
Think I need a devil to help me get things right
Hook me up a new revolution
'Cause this one is a lie
We sat around laughing and watched the last one die
Now I'm looking to the sky to save me
Looking for a sign of life
Looking for something to help me burn out bright
I'm looking for a complication
Looking cause I'm tired of lying
Make my way back home when I learn to fly high
I think I'm done nursing the patients
It can wait one night
I'd give it all away if you give me one last try
We'll live happily ever trapped if you just save my life
Run and tell the angels that everything's alright
