The Right Pleads With Trump To Pardon A Man Who Rebuilt His Life After Prison

The right is uniting behind Michael Charles

Published

When Matthew Charles was released from Prison after twenty-one years, he did what many find trouble doing, he turned his life around. He found himself a steady job and a girlfriend, he began volunteering on the weekends. To every account, he was a model citizen.

But to a federal appeals court, his two years out of prison were a mistake. You see, Charles was originally sentenced to 35 years in prison, but his sentenced was reduced, resulting in him being released in 2016 after 21 years in prison.

Despite him spending two years as a model citizen, the federal appears court felt that a mistake was made, and that Charles should never have been released in the first place. This was done because he was originally classified as a “career offender,” making reduced sentences impossible.

Charles was originally charged with selling crack to an undercover police officer, and has acknowledged his mistakes, admitting that he was not a model citizen at the time of his arrest. But during his two years being released, he stayed out of trouble, and proven he’s a changed man.

Despite his proven change, he’s back in prison, and many people are furious. Specifically, people on the right have come in heavily in support of Charles. Dozens of high-profile individuals on the right have come out in support of Charles, asking President Trump to commute his sentence.

Here’s just a sampling of those calling for President Trump to grant Michael Charles a full pardon:

Along with an outpouring of support on Twitter, a petition asking for President Trump to commute his prison sentence has been started at change.org.

With such vocal support from those on the right, there is a good chance that President Donald Trump will choose to pardon Matthew Charles. After all, it was pressure from friends of his that led towards the post-human pardon of heavyweight boxer Jack Johnson.

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.
