“I do not like the libs, I do not like their fibs. They fib on TV all day long. They even fib when they know they are wrong.”
For more than 20 years, March 2 has been celebrated as “Read Across America Day” in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, an author known and adored by millions.
But this year, his honorary birthday gift is having six of his books canceled by the liberal woke mob.
Leo Terrell appeared on Hannity Tuesday for a heated debate with liberal professor Dr. Omekongo Dibinga, and it’s a must watch.
“I support the decisions of a company making a decision on its own that it didn’t want to offend a group of people, so I’m all about supporting this,” Dibinga said.
The professor went on to list what he views as racism in Seuss’ books and declared the company was “making the right decision to respect how these people are viewed.”
Terrell went off, asking the professor to name one person harmed by the books.
“Those books are historical books. Those books talk about the weaknesses, the flaws in this country, and how this country has grown,” he said. “You name me one person, first and last name, who’s been harmed by any of these books. You cannot do it!”
“I can name the black community that has been harmed by these books,” Dibinga alleged.
This is where things get good.
“NO YOU DON’T!,” Terrell said. “Don’t say that! You do not represent the black community, you’re absolutely wrong. You do not represent the black community, you don’t represent me. For you to sit here and say that is a lie! You don’t speak for the black community. You are definitely a democratic talking point.”
“You can’t give me a name,” Terrell added. Stop spreading racism.”
Dibinga alleged that “The Sneetches,” one of Seuss’ books, is racist.
“You told Sean Hannity on the radio that your kids have those books, your kids have Dr. Seuss books. Why don’t you tell the audience your children have Dr. Seuss books so you’re a hypocrite. You’re talking out of both sides of your mouth,” Terrell fired back. “Show me the systemic discrimination.”
I’m not gonna let a democratic talking head lie about racism in America. This is the greatest country on earth

In a separate Fox News interview with Martha MacCallum, Terrell – a civil rights attorney and former school teacher – gave a more detailed perspective on the canceling of Dr. Seuss.
“The images reflect the time in which the books were written, in the 20s and 30s,” he said. “I was not offended by those pictures because it talks about the evolution of this country and how we are now. What those books reflected was a sign of the times. You cannot ignore history. You cannot eliminate history. There’s worse pictures than that. But taking in context, those that want to cancel these books, those that think these books are racist, show me the harm to victims today. They can’t,” he added.
“They use the argument of racism as a gimmick, a talking point to basically cancel people out,” he continued. “I think it’s wrong as a teacher, I think it’s wrong as a lawyer because unconstitutionally that is telling people that they can’t read certain books in libraries and if the government imposed these restrictions, it’s horrific. We cannot eliminate our history. Some history is bad but the majority is great. Both sides need to be taught.”
“When I taught, you talked about the context of how these books were written. Today that does not exist. It’s done with the movies like ‘Gone with the Wind’ and ‘The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.’ People are canceling things to set tone and basically hurt people economically, politically and socially. Cancel culture will backfire. It denies history.”
“I want to make it clear to all the viewers,” he said, “no person in American history is perfect, from George Washington to Abraham Lincoln. We don’t cancel. We need to embellish the good part, criticize the bad part, but grow and learn from it. I think that is something that we need to do and speak out about it.”
