‘Racist propaganda’: School refuses gifts from Melania Trump

Liberals have so much hatred in their heart for President Trump and the First Lady, they’ll do just about anything to find ways to legitimize their hatred for them, which is a sad commentary on just how divided the United States is right now.

Melania Trump recently revealed that one of her favorite books, which she read countless times to her son Barron, is the Dr. Seuss classic, Oh the Places You’ll Go!

The fond memories created with this tale is one of the reasons why she chose this book, along with nine others from the same author, to be sent to an elementary school in Cambridge, Massachusetts to celebrate “National Read a Book Day.”

A hate-mongering librarian at the school refused to accept the gift, due to disagreements with the Trump administration’s policies on education.

According to The Washington Examiner,

A librarian at Cambridgeport School refused to accept the gift, criticizing Trump administration education policies and images in the books.

Seuss’s illustrations are “steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes,” librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro wrote in a letter to Trump on Tuesday.

Giving the books was part of Trump’s effort to use her platform “to help as many children as she can,” White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said.

Those efforts include hosting a roundtable discussion Thursday about the opioid epidemic, including how it affects youths, and speaking at a luncheon on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly about work she hopes to do as an anti-bullying advocate.

“Turning the gesture of sending young school children books into something divisive is unfortunate, but the First Lady remains committed to her efforts on behalf of children everywhere,” Grisham said.

The school system in Cambridge released a statement clarifying that the librarian in question was not authorized to either accept or reject the books and that they were going to counsel the employee on the relevant policies.

It’s not bad enough that professional sports have been politicized — now children and their education are tools for political division, too. How sad.

Oh, and in case you need evidence that this is all political — and not because of the librarian’s high principles, here it is:

Liberals should be ashamed of themselves for giving the First Lady so much disrespect. If a school had done this to Michelle Obama, we’d have never heard the end of it.
