House Republicans are making money off their latest manufactured controversy around Dr. Seuss Enterprises saying it will no longer publish six Seuss books because they have hurtful portrayals of people.
The books are, “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” “If I Ran the Zoo,” “McElligot’s Pool,” “On Beyond Zebra!,” “Scrambled Eggs Super!,” and “The Cat’s Quizzer.”
“These books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong,” Dr. Seuss Enterprises said. “Ceasing sales of these books is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr. Seuss Enterprises’ catalog represents and supports all communities and families.”
According to Axios, the National Republican Congressional Committee is sending Dr. Seuss, classic ‘The Cat in the Hat’ to people who donate $25 to their efforts to retake the House in 2022, even though the book is not among the six books Seuss Enterprises say they would discontinue publishing.
“We won’t be able to speak or think freely by the time the Dems are through. Chip in $25 now and we’ll send ‘Cat in the Hat’ right to you,” the group wrote on their donations page.
