I used the last half of that at least 3 times in the last couple weeks. I didn't know (or forgot) that was Seuss.

There is so much fakery due to extreme left activists, so I am never certain what of these things is true.

In the same wikipedia (top-right) it shows that the democratic party was using this term to warn against the anti-slavery plans of Lincoln.
So why is the democratic party not cancelled?

It could be that Suess meant to be wrong to express (dark) humor.

But those times seem pretty extreme.

A added a Wikipedia link to show that this unbelievable thing actually exists, not because Wikipedia is trustworthy.

a fat reddit hippopotamus liked to play the catcher in the bottomus with a smile and a grin and a crusty gelled chin it announced Seuss as an author of vomitus
