the alleged doctor

Am I the last person in the world to know that the word nerd comes from Dr. Seuss?

Am I the last person in the world to know that Dr. Seuss did some pretty frightening war propaganda about the Japanese (including Japanese Americans)?

    It is funny because of the caricature. I doubt anyone would’ve taken this cartoon with anything but a grain of salt anyway.

  2. It was more than just “this cartoon.” < HREF="http://orpheus.ucsd.edu/speccoll/dspolitic/Japan.html" REL="nofollow">Here are sixty of the racist and “funny” cartoons,<> which Americans?in the midst of a race war with Japan, whose civilians FDR called “Japs” and slaughtered mostly with acceptance?did not by and large take with a “grain of salt.”

    Well, I won’t argue the humor or taste of racial stereotypes, but the grain-of-salt thesis flies in the face of the massive organized violation of the rights of Japanese American civilians. Please see the following:< HREF="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_internment" REL="nofollow">wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_internment<>< HREF="http://www.lewrockwell.com/gregory/gregory31.html" REL="nofollow">lewrockwell.com/gregory/gregory31.html<>(Nothing similar was done to Germans or Italians, not in that particular war.)

    Is it true that Horton Hears a Who was anti-abortion propaganda? “A person’s a person no matter how small” was the moral of the story.Are these Who’s the same species of being from whom the Grinch stole Christmas? I can’t keep the Dr Seuss alternate reality straight.
