Video: Ben Carson On Dr Seuss Witch Hunt: ‘This Is Poison In Our System’

Cancel culture leftists are “Like a child who is in charge who doesn’t like peas. So he says let’s ban peas, anybody eating peas or growing peas shall be killed.”

Former secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson described leftist attempts to cancel Dr Seuss books as ‘poison’ Thursday, adding that cancel culture on the whole stems from the fact that “socialists believe that everything comes from government.”

Carson made the remarks in response to Ebay’s announcement that it is banning the sale of the books as “offensive material,” following pressure from a leftist group.

Carson recited his own Dr Seuss type poem:

I do not like to cancel books. I do not like how that looks.

I do not like it here, nor there, I do not like it anywhere.

I do not like it in the store, I do not want it anymore.

I do think it’s time past, no longer to have thought a crime.

I do hope one day to see across my country ’tis of thee, books used to read and learn instead of set ablaze to burn.

Our heritage for all to share, little patriots everywhere.

Our nation’s story rich and vast, our true history taught in class.

A special place for all to be, a place known for its liberty.

Carson, founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute, further added “it’s appropriate that we’re talking about children’s books. Because as a society, we’re acting like children.”

He continued, “Like a child who is in charge who doesn’t like peas. So he says let’s ban peas, anybody eating peas or growing peas shall be killed. That’s childish thinking. That’s what we’re doing right now and it’s absolutely absurd. And I think the rest of the world is having a good belly laugh.”

“It’s time for us to mature to grow up to recognize, you know, America was the beacon of liberty,” Carson urged, adding America “was the place where people came so that they could express themselves, so they could believe what they wanted to believe so they could have religious freedoms.”

“It was a place where we believed that our liberties and freedoms came from God, and not from government. You know, the socialists believe that everything comes from government,” Carson emphasised, adding “We can’t abide it.”

In the wake of the farce, The New York Public Library as well as numerous other libraries across the country are refusing to cave to the woke mob, saying that the Seuss books will remain on the shelves because libraries do not censor books.

The absurd attempt to cancel the books has also prompted a huge increase in online sales.

Big Sis is Big Sad

Queen of disinfo gets dethroned.

It’s interesting how there’s a almost total Venn diagram overlap between ‘disinformation’ and information that embarrasses the regime.

Funny that, isn’t it?

French Open Warns Russian Players Not to Make Political Statements of Support For Putin

Rules of ideological purity test set by organizers.

The French Open tennis tournament has warned Russian players not to make political statements in support of President Vladimir Putin if they wish to take part in the grand slam.

Unlike Wimbledon, where they will be banned altogether, Russian and Belarusian players will be allowed to compete at Roland-Garros, but only under strictly neutral status.

However, Russian stars have been cautioned that they will face sanctions if they express anything other than pro-Ukraine opinions in the media in the run up to the event.

Roland-Garros Tournament Director Amelie Mauresmo made the tournament organizer’s position clear in a statement given to the press.

“We keep the line of what all the European governments – and other governments – decided in March, i.e. national teams of Russia and Belarus banned, but not the athletes as individuals, as long as they play under strict neutrality,” said Mauresmo.

“We will be very meticulous on that,” Mauresmo vowed. “[But] if any of them should have pro-Putin statements in the media, there will be sanctions for sure,” he added.

This obviously sets a dangerous precedent in terms of the free speech of prominent public figures.

Today, they’re mandated to support the NATO-aligned narrative about the Ukraine to be able to properly pursue their careers.

Next year, it could be something completely different, and indeed it was when Novak Djokavic was punished by Australian authorities for refusing to take a COVID-19 vaccine.

Who knows – sports athletes, actors, musicians could all in future be forced to sign up to some kind of ideological purity test that codifies their inability to challenge regime narratives lest they be hit with instant cancellation and career suicide.

As we highlighted last month, Ukrainian tennis star Elina Svitolina demanded that Russian and Belarusian players be subjected to ideological purity tests before they are allowed to compete in international tournaments.

Before Wimbledon slapped a total ban on all Russian players, then world number one Daniil Medvedev was told he would have to publicly denounce Vladimir Putin to be able to compete.

Elon Musk: Twitter Deal “Temporarily on Hold”

Questions over true percentage of user accounts that are spam bots.

Billionaire Elon Musk announced that his deal to buy Twitter is “temporarily on hold” over questions about whether fake and spam accounts really do represent less than 5 per cent of users.

“Twitter deal temporarily on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users,” Musk tweeted.

Despite Musk last week securing $7 billion from new investors for his $44billion takeover, Twitter shares fell 20 per cent in premarket trading in response to the news.

The Tesla founder has made it one of his priorities to eliminate “spam bots” form the platform, which Twitter claims represent fewer than 5% of its monetisable daily active users.

Media reports circulated earlier in the week suggesting Musk could still pull out of the deal and pay a $1 billion dollar compensation fee, but that may be waived if Twitter hasn’t been honest about the scale of its bot problem.

Blue checkmarks on Twitter are likely to welcome the news that the deal is on hold given that they have been panicking for the last several weeks about being unable to further entrench their censorship agenda if Musk takes over the platform.

Earlier this week, Musk asserted that the decision to permanently suspend President Donald Trump was “foolish” and that Trump would be allowed to re-instate his account after Musk’s takeover.

The billionaire added that under his stewardship, permanent bans would become a thing of the past, aside from when they’re applied to fake accounts.
