Dr Seuss Goes to War

We all love Dr Seuss for his wonderful children's' books, such as The Cat in the Hat. What most don't know is that he was a pro-war political cartoonist prior to the entry of the United States into WWII.

What many also don't know, is that the Catholic Priests, Fr Coughlin ("The Radio Priest") and Msgr Ryan did much to, in the public eye, equate the term "Social Justice" with Socialism. Lest you think Nazi Germany was anything but National Socialism, check out the following 1942 Dr Seuss cartoon:

This is from the book "Dr Seuss Goes to War (1999). Lots more interesting cartoons there!
