Flashback: Before Biden’s admin snubbed Dr. Seuss, Kamala Harris celebrated the famed children’s author

The legendary children’s author Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, was in the news this week after his estate decided to pull six of his books from print over allegations that they contained “racist imagery.” But before those on the left were trying to cancel Dr. Seuss, one of the nation’s biggest progressive stars was celebrating the late writer’s longstanding legacy.

A new report from Breitbart reveals that now-Vice President Kamala Harris penned a tweet celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday back in 2017.

“Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss!” Harris tweeted on March 2, 2017, according to Breitbart.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go,” she quoted.

Psaki blames DOE for Seuss snub

The flashback from Breitbart comes as the Biden administration is taking flak after apparently snubbing the late children’s author in a proclamation on Read Across America Day.

The New York Post reported Tuesday that the Biden administration didn’t mention Seuss in its declaration, though many other presidents have done so “enthusiastically,” according to Breitbart.

Pressed by reporters about the snub, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the decision came from the Department of Education (DOE).

“I think it is important that children of all backgrounds see themselves in the children’s books that they read, but I would point you to the Department of Education for any more details on the writing of the proclamation,” Psaki said, according to the New York Post.

Cancel culture strikes again

Dr. Seuss Enterprises had announced earlier that day that Seuss books including If I Ran the Zoo, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, McElligot’s Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, Scrambled Eggs Super!, and The Cat’s Quizzer would be pulled from print, the Post noted.

While the move prompted many on the left to amplify their opposition to Seuss and some of his material, conservatives have taken a far more supportive tone.

On Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) tweeted a happy birthday message to the late author that included an image depicting “The Cat in the Hat,” considered by many to be the author’s most well-known character.

In a subsequent tweet, Cruz blasted the removal of Seuss’ name from the president’s annual Read Across America Day proclamation, calling the move “utterly asinine.”

    1. She put up bond money for those who were burning towns and robbing stores, sounds like a “good” VP? She is not a truth teller, she took MLK’s speech and made it her own. Had she fallen from the atroller as she said, the parents would not have had to go looking for her. She just tells too much that is questionable. This country needs a lot of prayer going to God for help, we are fighting against something we have never had before except in other countries. We need to stop it before it gets bigger.

    2. What a “POTTY MOUTH YOU ARE!!! But, of course I would expect nothing different from someone like you. To say that Kamala Harris is being a prostitute for gain. is disgusting., All I can’ say is your nasty remark and disgusting vulgarity is uncalled for. Maybe you should enroll in a “Miss Manners” course

  1. I am 87 and loved reading Dr. Seuss books, the thoughts they provided was very good even to an adult. Are we going to have all these children’s books stop being printed because some people don’t like, well there are books I do not read or like, that is my privilege.

  3. VP Harris is one of the biggest lying democrats in our government. She dose need to be impeached A.S.A.P. She is destroying this country in every way she can .

  4. Harris is the most corrupt thing ever so-called elected VP of the US. the democrat party is depriving the children of America of education of reality and trying to instill in the minds of future generations by their proper gander of untruths and corruption. Impeach Biden, Harris, and Pelosi

    1. I am appalled at the many penning “impeach Biden” ! Though he may be a bit diminished, the two in line behind him are much worse anti-America, anti-democracy and anti-constitution than the relatively moderate Biden. Need to remove/impeach Harris & Pelosi before entertaining any thought of removing Biden!
