An economic indicator that Leftism is not popular is when they together, with all of their allies in think tanks, academia, media, and politics, try to cancel something, making it even more popular than ever before. Such as in the case of the left trying to cancel Dr. Seuss, leaving the children’s book dominating best-selling books list everywhere.
“Dr. Seuss dominated Amazon’s top 10 bestselling list on Wednesday, one day after the publisher announced it was pulling several books for apparent “racist undertones,” reported the New York Post.
Seuss books, including famed titles such as “The Cat in the Hat,” “Green Eggs and Ham,” and “Fox in Socks,” accounted for nine out of the top 10 bestselling books as of Wednesday morning.
More of the children’s favorites flooded the entire top 50 bestselling lists, accounting for 35 of the titles, the list shows.
The left is not amused.
“The greatest trick the right, largely through its dedicated media, ever pulled was convincing people that some old, forgotten racist Dr. Seuss books are more important than eating or being able to afford food or rent. Racism and the fear it produces are cultural crack and heroin,” Joyless Reid posted on her Twitter account.

Well, Reid doesn’t have her finger on the pulse of America because this is what Democracy looks like:
#1 Best Seller on Amazon in all Categories for the second day in a row is Cat in The Hat, by Dr. Seuss, only after Democrat Joe Biden said he was going to cancel the books from a government promoted “Read Across America Day”.

AND THERE IS MORE
And the books are now selling like hotcakes in a nationwide celebration of reading the classics.
Perhaps Biden was trying to help the publisher or Amazon sell Dr. Suess books?
Pulling the book out of the reading lineup, Biden opened up the broader discussion by top political pundits, celebrities, and educators over the left’s crazy extreme measures and their “cancel culture.”
Americans made Seuss memes and were unified in writing new prose about their favorite childhood memories. In general, they had a great laugh at the expense of the left, who are losing support for their ridiculous social justice obsessions that never actually help anyone and make SJWs look clownish.
Dr. Seuss was just as much of a real medical doctor as “Dr.” Jill Biden

Trump took down ISIS.
Biden took down Dr. Seuss.

FACEBOOK SAYS IT IS NOT FUNNY!
Lead Stories Journalist says that Cat in the Hat is not Canceled! And they mean it too!
“Has the Dr. Seuss book, “The Cat In The Hat,” been “canceled”? No, that’s not true: “The Cat In The Hat” is not among the six titles Dr. Seuss Enterprises announced on March 2, 2021, that it would no longer publish because some portrayals of people in the books were “hurtful and wrong.” The company owns the rights to Dr. Seuss’s books, which are published by Penguin Random House.
The claim appeared in a Facebook post (archived here) published March 2, 2021. The post contains an image, based on the book cover of “The Cat in the Hat,” across which “CANCELLED” is stamped in bold, black letters. The poster doesn’t specifically refer to the book’s title in the text of the post. However, the post is written in style similar to that found in the children’s book, which contains rhyming language often spoken in a sing-song cadence. The Facebook post opened:
Consider, how Facebook “Fact Checked” this post:
They canceled your feelings
They canceled your thoughts
They canceled the Dr. Seuss
Books that you bought
We’ll cancel your culture
And history they said
They even canceled
Poor Mr. Potato Head
They’ll cancel your clothes
And the shoes that you wear
They’ll cancel your opinions
And the style of your hair
You warriors of justice
I ask you to please
Stop trying to cancel
The air that I breathe
For I live in America
The Land of the Free
And one thing is certain
You won’t cancel me!
It is almost as if the left has absolutely no sense of humor. They really are not going to like this:

This Dr. Seuss controversy could go in many different directions.
