Published

on

The chairwoman of the Republican National Committee torched former first lady Michelle Obama for her Sept. 27 remarks at the Inbound2017 conference in Boston the chairwoman’s fundraising email sent out Friday.

“Michelle Obama said that women only voted for President Trump because we were told to. She said we voted against our own voices,” wrote Ronna  McDaniel, who was chosen by President Donald J. Trump to replace Reince Priebus as the leader of the Republican National Committee after the 2016 election. McDaniel is the niece of the 2012 GOP presidential nominee W. Mitt Romney.

McDaniel did not hold back.

“How DARE she. I’m a woman and I proudly voted for President Donald Trump out of my own free will — not because a man told me to,” she said. “Democrats love to call themselves “feminists” but the second a woman doesn’t fall in line with their liberal ideology, she’s attacked, silenced, and subjected to the very same sexist attacks liberals pretend to fight.”

Here is an excerpt from Michelle Obama’s remarks in Boston:

Quite frankly we saw this in this election. As far as I’m concerned, any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice in a way. To me, it doesn’t say as much about Hillary ― and everybody’s trying to wonder. Well, what does it mean for Hillary? No, no, no. What does it mean for us as women? That we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, ‘That guy. He’s better for me. His voice is more true to me.’ Well, to me that just says you don’t like your voice. You like the thing we’re told to like.

McDaniel also took on the former first lady’s comments Tuesday at the 14th annual Pennsylvania Conference for Women, where Obama said people don’t trust politics because Republicans are all just white men.

“Maybe we don’t trust politicians because they don’t listen to us and instead tell us how we’re supposed to think, feel and vote,” the former chairwoman of the Michigan Republican Party. “Or maybe it’s because of politicians like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton who have abused their powers, weakened our country, and disparaged tens of millions of Americans as deplorables who cling to their religion.”

McDaniel closed the email with seven reasons why she voted for the president on her own accord.

“I voted to drain the swamp. I voted for the wall. I voted for tougher screenings of refugees. I voted for tax cuts. I voted for a repeal of ObamaCare. I voted for a stronger economy. I voted for an America First foreign policy,” she said. “If that’s the agenda you want to see become the law of the land, en I need you to join me in our efforts to defend the president right now.”

Virginia School District Stops Celebrating Dr. Seuss on Read Across America Day Because of the “Racial Undertones” in His Books

It’s all so tiresome.

Published

on

The Loudoun County School District in northern Virginia has stopped celebrating Dr. Seuss during Read Across America Day because of the “strong racial undertones” in some of his books.

Research in recent years has revealed strong racial undertones in many books written/illustrated by Dr. Seuss. Examples include anti-Japanese American political cartoons and cartoons depicting African Americans for sale captioned with offensive language,” the district wrote in a statement.

Given this research, and LCPS’ focus on equity and culturally responsive instruction, LCPS provided this guidance to schools during the past couple of years to not connect Read Across America Day exclusively with Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Dr. Seuss and his books are no longer the emphasis of ‘Read Across America Day’ in Loudoun County Public Schools,” the statement added.

To be clear, this does not mean that Loudoun County School District is outright banning Dr. Seuss’ books. They are still available for children to read in their libraries and classrooms.

Read Across America Day is celebrated every year on March 2, the day of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, and many schools across the country celebrate National Reading Month every March.

The National Education Association, which created National Reading Month and Read Across America Day, started to distance themselves from explicit promotion of Dr. Seuss in 2017 and now promotes non-white authors who write books about “racial justice,” “inclusivity,” and so on.

Dr. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, worked as a political cartoonist in addition to illustrating and writing children’s books. Interestingly enough, Geisel was a passionate supporter of FDR and a lifelong liberal Democrat.
