The Next Cancellation Target: Dr. Seuss
Maybe this means UC San Diego will be pressured to rename its iconic Geisel Library?
Oh it’s gonna happen, Tortoise.

Btw, in the comments of that wsj article, someone mentioned the targeting of Bon Appetit magazine because a non-Jewish woman wrote a recipe for Jewish pastries (Purim hamantashen). That was in pre-woke 2015, but Bon Appetit is fixing it as part of their Archive Repair Project. yikes.
I guess this falls under the wokist charge of cultural appropriation.

Oh my gosh, forget the two above; they’re nothing! They led to this one, and it’ll make your blood boil.

Just use Reader View on a tablet or phone. They haven’t learned to block that.
