After waking liberals have chosen to ban Dr. Seuss, Raleigh grew up in China and published a really insightful article of The Federalist.
One of the things she most liked about America was kid reading when Raleigh emigrated to the USA from China. She liked how optimistic the tales of American youngsters were. They were entertaining, captivating, and encouraging youngsters to imagine and to make use of their creativity.
The tales she had exposed in communist China were so different from the gloomy, ideologically Marxist childhood tales.
As a Chinese immigrant, Helen is extremely concerned that her marxist home’s propagandist literature has been cultivated in the same manner as political correctness, canceling culture, and waking porters of America’s publishing industry.
One of the rare silver lines of the epidemic is that parents from all of America’s politicians are starting to reawaken via teachers, librarians, textbooks, animations, and social media to their children’s brainwashing.
Suddenly, the passing of George Floyd made BLM Inc. more popular and wealthy, and it was time for the company to churn school curriculum as quickly as possible. After all, Saul Alinsky’s progressive acolytes are aware that they should never let the problem go. But with schools stopped and kids forced to zoom from their homes, parents started to closely observe the poison of the critical race theory.
Parents, frustrated and powerless, eventually began to appear at school board meetings and take their children out of wakeful schools to teach them to hates each other in their nation and if they are white.
All this is excellent. This is excellent. But as the children’s literature of America – editors, and large box bookshops like Amazon and Barnes and Noble – flies below the Radar, while parents concentrate on their schools and the ordinary Hollywood and Big Tech suspects.
When you purchase children’s books online, you determine what is published, canceled, or “recommended.”
It is no chance that Ibrahim Kendi, a racial huckster, is shown prominently in the children’s lit department of your bookshop, in his books ‘Antiracist Baby’ and in Chelsea Clinton’s ‘She persisted.
Superheroes are all over the place, even ended up in juvenile detention facilities on our southern frontier, according to Vice President Kamala Harris. No newspaper reporter has found out how or who paid to give it to youngsters who suffered sufficient distress throughout the desert and Rio Grande.
Harris’s attention, their sad travels, and the whole human rights catastrophe on its border that she helped create and was supposed to solve is even richer. It’s richer than that.
My first book, ‘Paloma Wants to be Lady Freedom,’ was a tale about a young Hispanic Girly who falls in love with the gorgeous monument over the USA, and I had my first personal experience with the awake curators of what our children read. Capitol.
My agent was interested in my novel at an early stage from two major companies. It was, however, obvious from the beginning that the editors fought with the patriotic theme of the tale. In November 2016, Donald Trump’s surprise election arrived. Not long after the election, one of the editors ghosted us.
After Trump was inaugurated in January and the following “Women’s March,” the other publisher sent a letter to my agent saying, “I should have seen this sooner, but I think that the way it has been in our nation over the previous two months is part of what has helped me to see this.
I was determined to unleash my library and went to Regnery, a conservative publication that welcomed my book and its message. While my book has thrived via my own marketing of it on mainly conservative venues, the conventional publishing industry disregarded it.
Only liberal writers are published or promoted which comply with the limited concept of diversity. Ironically, for them, “inclusion” does not include writers who disapprove of their policies and global views, especially of America.
The intentional exclusion of books with conventional or conservative themes. The disturbing thing is that novels that are culturally significant for America, such as “Adventures of the Huckleberry Finn,” “Little House on the Prairie,” “To Kill A Mockingbird” and Dr. Seuss, are canceled nowadays, for the reasons of racial and historical “sensitivity,” are completely prohibited.
The breaking of ties – literary ties in this instance – that link us to our history is part of the extreme left-wing cultural revolution. Outgoing and prohibiting our past strengthens the idea that our history is racist and has to be refurbished.
Raleigh’s reply to this worrisome tendency has connected with me as a passionate child’s book collector and a mother who likes to read to her own children.

One way is to establish your own “Freedom Library,” she said. How are you beginning? Raleigh said, “It’s simple. Start with all the progressive literature that you wish to prohibit. I propose immediately that the little gems that you have grown up to read and love are bought from Americans and Amazon’s Jeff Bezas, before “Non-profit” make-up diversity determines “Treasure Island” or Nancy Drew are too insulting.
I requested Raleigh to give me her list of the books for an independent library during our “Primetime” conversation. I have my own list to add to her basic children’s literature, which every parent or grandparent should present to young, inquisitive and impressive brains.
Some of them have a point of view on freedom, while others, like Dr. Seuss and Peter Pan, are just enjoyable and are therefore in risk of being annulled by our time’s humorless, politically correct censors that perceive all sorts of racism and sexism.
Unfortunately, Raleigh’s interview to me was short by the tech gods (or maybe the CCP haha!), and the whole list was never displayed.
Hundreds of people contacted me after the interview and asked me to publish it again. With classes ending and summer approaching, I can’t think of starting a Freedom Library better and getting your children and grandchildren to read great books that they aren’t going to give to the school and that should never be subject to the narrow-minded neo-Marxist censors of our day.
