Dan Crenshaw Has Written a Children’s Book About the Danger of ‘Wokeness.’ This is Not a Joke

Rep. Dan Crenshaw — who has called for Olympic Athletes who protest during the national anthem to be kicked off the team — has written a children’s book about the dangers of ‘cancel culture’ and ‘wokeness.”

The book, entitled Fame, Blame and the Raft of Shame, purports to “teach youth about the dangers of cancel culture,” and to compete with “left-wing” and “woke” books written for children. 

In a tweet promoting the book, Crenshaw’s publisher, BRAVE Books, said, “Kids should be taught to learn from their mistakes – NOT be canceled for them. It’s time to teach our kids to be BRAVE and stand up to cancel culture.”

The book is reportedly set in an underwater city protected by a massive dome of seaweed. The protective dome begins to crack as citizens are banished from the city for various insensitive transgressions on ‘rafts of shame’ through the seaweed, which begins to crack from these apparent acts of ‘canceling.’ 

“While today’s culture presents canceling others’ opinions as the solution to their problems, they don’t realize that a culture of canceling eventually cancels culture entirely,” according to the book’s online summary. Perhaps the book can take the place of Jerry Craft’s books in the Katy, Texas school district that was ‘canceled’ for allegedly promoting ‘critical race theory.’ Or maybe Rep. Crenshaw can speak about it at the Bullock Museum, which ‘canceled’ a talk with the authors of a book that dared to question the mythology about the Alamo.  Or maybe some politicians profess to hate ‘cancel culture,’ except when they’re doing the canceling.

Writer, editor, photographer and editorial cartoonist Nick Anderson has joined the Reform Austin newsroom, where he will employ the artistic skill and political insights that earned a Pulitzer Prize to drive coverage of Texas government. As managing editor, Anderson is responsible for guiding Reform Austin’s efforts to give readers the unfiltered facts they need to hold Texas leaders accountable. Anderson’s original cartoons will be a regular feature on RA News. “Reform Austin readers understand the consequences of electing politicians who use ideological agendas to divide us, when they should be doing the hard work necessary to make our state government work for everyone,” Anderson said. “As a veteran journalist, I’m excited about Reform Austin’s potential to re-focus conversations on the issues that matter to common-sense Texans – like protecting our neighborhoods from increasingly common disasters, healthcare, just to name a few.” Anderson worked for the Houston Chronicle, the largest newspaper in Texas, from 2006 until 2017. In addition to the Pulitzer, Anderson earned the Society of Professional Journalists’ Sigma Delta Chi Award. He’s also a two-time winner of Columbia College’s Fischetti Award, and the National Press Foundation’s Berryman Award. Anderson’s cartoons have been published in Newsweek, the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, the Chicago Tribune and other papers. In 2005, Anderson won the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning while working for the Courier-Journal in Louisville, Kentucky. The judges complimented his “unusual graphic style that produced extraordinarily thoughtful and powerful messages.”
