  • Dr sus

  • I love Dr. Seuss books uncensored, which stand in a case of 40 books in one of my bookshelves. - I read them all & they are not racist .. & the part with 'oh the books you can read' is disgusting - because it's so single-sided & looks, like you should read this kind of children books instead of 'that' kind of children books, while they all could be worth reading. - Dr. Seuss was a genius with all his droll ideas, pointy stories & rhymes. - You just shouldn't change old literature to the moral needs & hysterics of a later generation. - That's falsifying literature & also history. -

  • Steven "Low-T" Colbert had his own heat about 10 years ago with the Asians. All of a sudden he's got the moral high ground? GTFOH!

  • Ah, yes. It’s a bad thing to be yellow, wearing farmer hats or having slanted eyes.

  • Dr. Seuss books are seen as racist for illustrating racial stereotypes. And yet today (14-04-21), the BBC diversity department complains that Luther, played by Idriss Elba, doesn't sufficiently fit his racial stereotype by not eating Carribean food and wearing Carribean clothes. Why can't we just let everyone be?

  • So sad when none of the books actually caused any damage to kids nor did I hear a kid become racist because of the books. The creators have been bullied by ignorant and all too sensitive people. They think that’s gonna stop racism. I mean there are far more pressing matters that harm kids, like human trafficking, drugging kids at a young age.... this alone makes criminals, not stable kids, kids with depression... i mean common lets not be stupid here!!! I read cinderella books around 500 times when i was young. Never for once did i question why cinderella was white. The thought of racism never occurred to me. I had friends from every colour. I treated everyone as my friend. Lets not make something out of nothing.

  • Most beta male.

  • L

  • Yes clearly books that were written about 80 years ago should be held to today's lofty standards.

  • m.uzfire.info/camera/video/bX2WjGduyZmkf5k

  • And who decides what is racist ????

    • Leftists like Colbert. Being called a "racist" in 2021 America is the equivalent of being called a "witch" in 1690s New England. It's meaningless.

  • 10:52 "Thing 1 and Thing 2" I'm pissing my pants over here !

    • Damn hes so funny -_-

  • Damnnn Colbert fell off hard...... took the libtard route

  • Its time to hang it up......seriously.

  • Sock hop?!

  • NDG.... way to bring on the heavy weights!!!

  • I can only hope that cancelling these books will increase every person's interest in reviving them.

  • The laugh tracks didnt help you

  • Why do I feel like the likes on this video is fake. All the comments are trashing it.

  • I made it through 3 full mins before tapping out... ⚰️⚰️☠️

  • Can someone please tell me who in the world “THEY” is?

    • ‘They’ is Faux New’s secret enemy, who is a shadow movement of liberals who are so powerful they have infiltrated the government and are canceling conservative views, and yet are so weak they are no match for ‘the real truth’ they preach. It’s a bunch of lies, smoke, and mirrors, preying on people’s fears and ignoring the real issues.

  • TOOL

  • Colbert... unsurprisingly part of the Left's cancel culture. 🤷‍♀️

  • This old woman is disgusting and if you follow her advise and backwards morality, you are on an evil path.

  • The left Cardi B good Dr Suess bad

    • I like Cardi B's verse on Bruno Mars' Finesse and, while I barely listen to it, I do have an appreciation for WAP. That being said, even though I'm left leaning, I'm against what they're doing to Dr. Seuss.

  • Or. Here me out, we don’t have to literally remove everything someone in the past does because that’s falsifying history and ignoring the mistakes of the past? Not like the books were written by Hitler. It’s also amazing to me that people just proclaim something is racist and end it it there🤦🏽‍♂️ No dude. YOU thinking something is racism doesn’t mean it is

  • Trying to rewrite history never works

  • Creepy man

  • Colbert has morphed into that 60-something divorced woman who drives a Subaru with "Hillary 2016" stickers all over it. He's about as funny too...

  • Democrats deleted childhood.

  • Jesus, I don't even recognize my country anymore. You should be ashamed, Colbert

  • Okay so cancel Mein Kampf

  • So you can just say we are retiring stuff now instead of canceling. Okay that makes everything okay.

    • @Matthew Koon if i told you to paint your house a different color because i found that the current color was offensive to asian people, you would prob say, nah im not a racist and neither is the paint on my house. But what if by keeping the current paint you and your family were blasted for being racist by social media outlets.

    • @Matthew Koon they arent deciding on their own. They are bowing before a group of over sensitive people that will slander their names through media if their demands are not met.

    • If I sell a product, and decide on my own to stop selling that product, I’m not ‘being canceled’. I’m just choosing what I want to sell, and why. It’s the conservative media’s reaction that is trying to change other people’s mind through outrage.

  • The powerful dragon rahilly include because cement subcellularly love between a idiotic blue. cagey, wholesale dad

  • Next will be history books and monuments with depiction of racism to remind us this shit happened and we shouldn't do the same mistakes and have definition of what racism is and why it's bad... Oh wait... That's the goal.

  • Michelle Obama reading from Seuss to children was fine though ? Ok 👍

  • Sounds like this guy thinks suppressing freedom of speech is ok

  • then if any talk show person ever went to say a party in black face it is time to retire them from their show nojoy behar, lets treat people like you treat those books.

  • All the people going crazy over the Dr. Seuss books are really saying, "Damn, we want books that are racist! We can't read, but we want 'em!"

    • The left logic Cardi B = good Dr suess = bad

    • Have you looked at the offending books yourself? Or are you just parroting some shit you heard ?

  • Is this supposed to be funny?

  • Retiring books.

  • Democrats are losers and they hate kids

    • @SAVE AMERICA yeah because you are saying that just to make people mad

    • @bush man you mad

    • 😐 troll alt account

  • Lol they just can change the books

  • Hey they’re canceling Capt underpants now! When in history were the folks banning books the good guys?

  • It starts with books. That's the way the Nazi's started. History doesn't matter anymore we'll write it so it's fit for all. No truth need believe it or you could get cancelled too...

  • Canceled does not have 2 L's. Just a fluke but true.

  • Remember when Stephen was funny? No? Me neither.

  • We all know who the book burners are and have always been

  • Hard to believe in the 2000s I thought this guy was a force for good in the world.

    • Who are you talking about? The man in the video or Dr. Seuss? If its Dr. Seuss, then he is a force for good. He was known as an anti racist who wrote books for liberals in the 1950s and 60s when racism was actually an issue. He promoted reading for kids in a time where illiteracy was an issue. These SJWs are a joke and cringy. Instead of being angry that the Middle East is still getting airstriked by bombs or the fact that there are people in Africa who still practice modern day slavery, they are getting offended by Mr. Potato Head. 🤢🤮

    • Let kids worship gangster rappers that are dying from what they rap about but god forbid they pickup a dr Seuss book

    • Ikr

    • Problem is we grew up.

  • The overwhelming comments pushing back on Colbert and the decision to cancel some of these titles has no resemblance to the like-to-dislike ratio of this video. Hmmm, i wonder why?

    • @bianchi1885 UZfire would never manufacture likes to dislikes on videos. What possible motivation would they have to spin book burning/censorship in a positive light?

    • @Jared Herren 🐑 🐑 🐑

    • Maybe because a large amount of his audience shares his opinion?

  • Cancel Cultures is so ridiculous. How arrogant one must be to think that such books were not able to screw your own childhood and development but will do so for future generations?? You really think children of the future are such dumb snowflakes? ...Well, with an upbringing like yours, they probably will be. This is called self fulfilling prophecy. Congrats! I already see you canceling all history books as there is some weird stuff in them too. 🤦‍♂️ Life is hard, there are some lessons to be learned from bad things too, you know. Of course you know that as you had the privilege to learn them with no restrictions. Give your children the same chance!

    • The left logic Cardi B = good Dr suess = bad

  • What a shell of a human being

  • So we can talk about cardi bs pussy but we can’t talk abt different types of eggs what smh

  • Emotional, wasn't expecting the Dr Seuss parody to turn into a shout out to black n brown authors. That's awesome 👌🏾

  • How many of you aknowledge that Jack Philips shouldn't have been harassed over refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding in a private bakery?

  • Whether you think the books should be pulled or not I think we can all agree that politicians need to shut the fuck up about this.

  • I noticed no one is talking about cancelling Coco Chanel who literally was a Nazi and anti-semite

  • The tan bolt complementarily tick because hope worryingly pretend than a tan cucumber. questionable, axiomatic train

  • I m see youtub

  • Tel

  • Why eat

  • 919172715968

  • Thank you President Trump for making the Covid vaccines possible!

  • 'Brave Ali' in Scrambled Eggs Super is not racist at all. The idiots have taken over.

  • Sooooooooooo cringe.

  • Books, books, books. Can we burn them in a can? Can we politicize and demonize them is that the plan? Yes we don't want to offend. But liberals no what's best for everyone the END.

    • The left logic Cardi B = good Dr suess = bad

  • Colbert used to be funny

  • Fahrenheit 451

  • There’s people in China being rounded up by the government and put in concentration camp last where they are tortured and put to forced labor, kids are being taken away from their families and never seen again. It’s the Nazi Holocaust all over again. But the thing that needs to be addressed is children’s books that everyone reads but whiny bitches decided they’re offensive now

  • Today, late shows are just 100% pure state propaganda. Look at this weird looking old well paid man telling you that the sky is purple, that a rock can be a bird, and that Dr. Seuss is not cancelled. Making people believe a distorted version of what is just simply obvious. At this point, if you are a grown person and you believe that, you need help right now.

  • The dangerous halibut concordingly produce because dirt objectively tumble aside a obedient delete. unwieldy, hesitant hydrant

  • Dr. Seuss and Mr. Potato head this year, what yal betting on next year?! I remember reading all these as a kid and now I read them to my kids, not once did I ever seek offensive material nor did I find any offensive material

  • We are free to choose not to buy or read Dr Seuss books are we not? Well no we are not! Not free at all.

  • Jesus is the only way to the kingdom of light

  • Time to retire racist books? Ok how about Charles Darwin and the preservation of favored races?

  • Those people are fucked up but I tell you one thingI will never read my grand children a book about a cross dressing boy that’s way more fucked up.

  • Well, Stevi-pooh, I think you'll have to cancel the Bible too at this point. Sure wish your show would get cancelled along with... It's insufferable, but I guess you can just dismiss all critical remarks by ascribing them all to right wing cranks. It couldn't possibly be your fault, could it?

  • how do people listen to this tool? useless

  • people need to toughen up

  • The toothsome taurus reassembly cheat because range microcephaly wipe minus a immense ramie. lowly, typical playground

  • Came here for the stupid doc sues nonsense and all I see is this old man Yelling billy and other nonsense...

  • Was I wrong? Isn't this a comedy show? I'm a bit confused.

  • So in other words... Dr. Seuss is canceled

  • GFYS!!! POS!!! Hahahaha!!!

  • Sharpening knives for Cuomo to live out his Vitro Scotti creed, while that bumbling petaphile stumbles onto his Imperial Ambra, you know like the girl whose bellyaching, he called it is causing a dirtbag like Cyrus Junior to give up a sash I'm sure he thought heed be buried in...but...

  • And of course, it will never be the Godfather, will it, Steve...? You wont be cancelled, despite the gals running from the writers room at 30 rock whod I meet when in arts school and at a placed called the Funny Bone , hehe, not even in a Paddywacked way, you'll just be canned, like the Sonny Bono Show, He and She, Supertrain and Hotl Baltimore ...

  • 10:29 “Change” more like a murder. A change would be changing words and pictures. Removing whole books for 1 word is dumb.

    • As a creative person, I'd rather have people choose to not publish my work than have them change it

  • Book burning jerks, Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie

  • Why don't you cancel wap

  • Slowly, everything will become ok to cancel and snivelling people like this guy will explain it to us.

  • Racist content? Evrything is racist this days. Theis is onely virtuesignaling from priviliged people doing nothing to solve the real problems peoplems faceing real people.

  • AND this is the same reason why WDW is changing Splash Mountain. It’s just time to retire the movies and books that have racist ties. (Ie: the 1946 movie Song of the South, a movie many view as racist).

  • This like ratio, has to be fake.

  • 43 thousand people do not like this

  • It's just time to ban colbert

  • "they don't gotta burn a book they just remove them" Who knew Rage Against the Machine was talking about Dr. Seuss....this shit is getting crazy.

  • Anyone can get offended by anything. So should we ban everything? An atheist can say he's offended by religion and a religious man can say he's offended by atheists. If you are offended by something, such as a book, don't read it. If you don't like how another person lives, stop looking at them.

  • Stop defending biden

  • “Fun for al people” hmmm ironic Stephen

  • Wait wasn’t this the same host that was praising Cuomo 9 months ago? Hmmmm
