Conservative radio host Glenn Beck went into total panic over the so-called ‘cancellation culture’ supposed to target Dr Seuss and classic children’s toys, calling on his listeners to ‘buy Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head ”while they can because it’s“ the end of freedom in America ”.
Over the past two days, the right-wing media has obsessed with Dr Seuss Enterprises’ decision to stop publishing six obscure books due to blatantly racist and offensive imagery, claiming it is just one another example of the “cancellation” of the “awakened” left. the past. However, the fact that it was Dr Seuss’ own foundation that decided to put an end to the pounds is lost in the discussion.
Beck, who just a few years ago was “sorry for all of this” over his right-wing conspiratorial delusions, took on his BlazeTV show on Tuesday to issue an overblown warning to his audience about Dr Seuss and Hasbro’s wording change. their Mr. Potato Head to Potato Head.
“They ban Dr. Seuss books,” Beck growled. “How much more needs to be seen before all of America wakes up and says, ‘This is fascism! It’s fascism! You are not destroying the books! (The books, of course, weren’t banned. The publisher just isn’t going to print new versions of the specific six books, like when record companies pull albums or, say, Disney puts certain movies back in the game. “jump.”)
“What’s wrong with us America?” Beck continued to declaim. “Go out and buy these books today. Find out if you can get them. Buy Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head because it’s the end of an era. It’s the end of freedom in America! “
Prior to Dr Seuss’ kerfuffle, conservatives lost their collective mind on Mr Potato Head, mistakenly believing Hasbro was getting rid of the brand’s gender identities. The toy company, instead, is just renaming the global Potato Head brand, while Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head dolls will remain available.
Beck, who has long compared progressives to the Nazis, then ominously warned that Americans will soon be “intimidated to the point where it’s best not to have this book.”
