Liberal librarian tries to insult Melania Trump but looks foolish instead

When Melania Trump offered to donate several Dr. Seuss books to a school library in Cambridge, Massachusetts to celebrate National Read-A-Book Day, librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro haughtily rejected her gift. Ms. Soeiro sniffed in reply:

By John Leonard

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. Just down the street you have access to a phenomenal children’s librarian: Dr. Carla Hayden, the current Librarian of Congress. I have no doubt Dr. Hayden would have given you some stellar recommendations.

What might Ms. Soeiro have preferred? The photo accompanying this BBC article might suggest she would have accepted ten copies of the “children’s book” Rad American Women A to Z, but even that is doubtful because the actual problem for Ms. Soeiro doesn’t really seem to be the gift, but the identity of the giver.

It’s probably just as well, considering “A” stands for Angela Davis,  a former Communist, a Marxist professor, and a leader of the radical and often violent Black Panther movement. After all, not many parents want their children reading ideological liberal garbage that glorifies domestic terrorists while the kids are still in elementary school.

Fellow Resurgent writer Heidi Munson astutely observed in her earlier article that the snub seemed politically motivated, and her analysis proved to be right on the money. Here’s the real danger of being an arrogant liberal like Liz Phipps Soeiro — enough people will remember pictures like this, and gleefully post them on social media:

Inquiring minds want to know … but in reality, we’re pretty sure we do know the primary motive for liberal behavior is irrational, out-of-control anger.
