Point and Shriek

It’s time to steal a tactic from the Left:

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — A librarian at the Cambridgeport Elementary School in Massachusetts is declining a shipment of books from first lady Melania Trump.
One school from each state was chosen by the White House to receive 10 Dr. Seuss books as part of National Read a Book Day, CBS Boston reports…

Before Social Justice

Rather than just smile and accept the books, school librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro very publicly decided that her school didn’t need no Dr. Seuss, because rayciss:

Another fact that many people are unaware of is that Dr. Seuss’s illustrations are steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes. Open one of his books (If I Ran a Zoo or And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, for example), and you’ll see the racist mockery in his art.

Yes, it’s a capital example of moral preening and hypocritical hysteria – former first lady Michelle Obama used to read “racist” Dr. Seuss books to school kids all the time, and if anyone recognizes racism it’s her*.  And then there’s the embarrassing picture of Mx. Soeiro dressed as the Cat in the Hat. This occurred before she learned how rayciss he was apparently.
It would be incorrect to imagine that she needed in her heart of hearts to write a public letter to turn down a gift of some of the most beloved books in American history. No, the whole point of the very public refusal letter had nothing to do with Seuss and everything to do with Mx. Soeiro’s dislike of President Trump. It was seen as a capital opportunity to stick one to that mean old white man. She was showing off to her comrades.
That’s why it is no good arguing with SJWs such as this, because they do not argue in good faith. There is no point in appealing to their minds, for there are no facts that will break them from the virtue spiral in which they have immersed themselves. The only thing to do with them is to mock them, to point out their hypocrisy as loudly and publicly as possible. As Saul Alinsky explained in Rules for Radicals, ridicule is mankind’s most potent weapon. They want attention? Give it to them, squared, cubed, and loaded with gee juice.

The primary objective of the mockery is not to break the probably-mentally-ill object of your scorn**. The primary objective is to drive a wedge between the leftist and normal people. It is to get the great unengaged middle to say, “These people are obviously insane and I’m not going to listen to them anymore.”  It is to inoculate everyday Americans against the cancer that is social justice.
When SJWs overstep – and they must, for by their nature they must continue to out-signal their contemporaries – swat them down. Whether you watch the NFL or not (I haven’t in years), it’s critical to punch back, using the conservative, veteran, male fan base of the NFL to do so. Whether you like Dr. Seuss or not, know that millions of Americans love him, and use that love to point out the lunacy of Social Justice. Millions of Americans are on our side in this. They simply do not know they are on any side yet. Let them know.
Mx. Soiero has already been kind-of-reprimanded by her employer: librarians, she was told quite publicly, are not authorized to reject gifts on behalf of the school district. But should the mockery become too loud, should the rage reach fever pitch, the district is as likely as not to throw her into the volcano as a peace offering.
Her disemployment may serve as a warning to other SJWs who want to publicly spread their lunacy. Or perhaps they aren’t even rational enough to notice. It will surely serve as a morale booster for those of us who are tired of social justice growing like mold into every moist nook and cranny of modern America.
Social Justice can live in confined spaces, like academia or games journalism, sci-fi and comics.  It can control niches and crevices.  But it cannot live in the light. Nor can it stand the heat.
Take some time every day to spread a little light. Mock an SJW in public today. Your children will someday thank you.
*just ask her.
** that’s just a bonus, and one you’re almost guaranteed to receive.

  1. You’re absolutely right when you say she was showing off. She doesn’t actually care about racism or Dr. Suess. The entire drama is simply because she doesn’t like Trump and had a chance to (in her opinion) “do” something about it. Pretty ridiculous all around. The problem with people refusing these things because of racism is that the narrative has swung so far left that things that weren’t offensive even a year ago are now considered completely terrible. Even the people screaming “racism” are perpetrators of the “racism” they so seem to fear.
