Dr. Seuss Anti-Nazi/America First Cartoons in the 1940s. What's Old Is New Again

It is amazing how we are once again in a battle against racism, xenophobia and anti-semitism as though World War II and the fight against the Nazis never took place with a President proudly proclaiming that he is a white nationalist. Indeed, you can say we are worse off, since celebrity Lindbergh never won the Presidency.

6. Thanks

Seuss was a great political cartoonist! He must be rolling in his grave right now.

8. Theodore Geisel (Dr Seuss) had his own hatreds.

He was viciously anti-Japanese, and drew a cartoon showing Japanese-Americans as saboteurs.
