Keep your free children’s books, bigot!
What happens when you place children in the care of a woman? She might take care of them – unless, of course, there’s a way to virtue-signal by throwing them under the bus.
Last week, liberals (who are probably mostly women) condemned countless sick children to a painful death by having a fundraiser cancelled to spite Trump.
Now, an elementary school librarian is publicly rejecting a donation from Melania Trump in order to show the entire world how progressive she is.
Good for you, you dumb bitch.
Too bad the books weren’t intended for you. The books were for the kids.
Oh, well, who cares about them, amirite?
Poor little bastards. Now they won’t get their books.
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.
“Getting an education is perhaps the most important and wondrous opportunity of your young lives,” Trump said in a letter to the children who will be receiving books.
The school’s librarian, Liz Phipps Soeiro, wrote a lengthy editorial for the Horn Book’s Family Reading blog explaining why her school does not need the books.
She didn’t just reject the books. She had to write an essay to let everyone know how virtuous she is.
This totally isn’t about stroking her ego, I’m sure.
“My students have access to a school library with over nine thousand volumes and a librarian with a graduate degree in library science. Multiple studies show that schools with professionally staffed libraries improve student performance,” wrote Phipps Soeiro.
Case in point. She’s actually bragging about her stupid “library science” degree, whatever that is. I’m guessing it’s not actually a science. I doubt they have to learn calculus and differential equations, that’s for sure.
Phipps Soeiro also criticized Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and the Trump administration’s education policy.
“Why not go out of your way to gift books to underfunded and underprivileged communities that continue to be marginalized and maligned by policies put in place by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos?” she wrote.
If you’re so worried about that, why didn’t you accept the gift and then give it to one of those “underprivileged” schools, you dumb bitch?
Also, a lot of these Black schools are actually incredibly well funded. All these armed guards and metal detectors cost money, after all.
The librarian’s editorial also criticizes the first lady’s book selections, which include “The Cat in the Hat,” “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish,” “The Foot Book,” “Green Eggs and Ham” and “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”
“You may not be aware of this, but Dr. Seuss is a bit of a cliché, a tired and worn ambassador for children’s literature. As First Lady of the United States, you have an incredible platform with world-class resources at your fingertips,” she wrote.
So in the end, her only real reason for refusing is that she doesn’t like those books. Nothing is “cliché” for a kid; everything they see, they see for the first time. Only adults like this librarian can be blasé like this. So even this excuse is ridiculous on the face of it.
We can’t let women be in charge of anything anymore, or they’ll just destroy everything in their desperate effort to virtue-signal.
