seuss hyperventilating

Left-leaning online mag Counterpunch (which was good before it went full-on Russiagater) defends censorship in a recent article about the hot topic du jour:  dated racial stereotypes in old Dr. Seuss kids' books.

It’s a fairly self-righteous screed that employs the familiar tactic of arguing that “if X is allowed, it will lead to death camps!”

It's hard to convey without reading it how un-nuanced this writing is. In fact Ted Geisel (Dr. Seuss) worked as a cartoonist during World War II and helped rally Americans to save people from death camps. This Counterpuncher doesn't want truth to get in the way of a good rant, though.
