Recently, 250 publishing professionals of the United States penned a letter.  In it, they urge all people in their industry not to aid in or allow the publication of any materials for any people related to the Trump administration, which they deem a “mitigating criterion.”  And the list is growing.

Because they are very smart people with (we assume) fancy humanities degrees and we are just the plebes, we hired a translator to interpret their erudite message.  You can read both the letter and its translation, below:

“We all love book publishing, but we have to be honest — our country is where it is in part because publishing has chased the money and notoriety of some pretty sketchy people, and has granted those same people both the imprimatur of respectability and a lot of money through sweetheart book deals.”

Translation: We love free speech, but only when it is speech we like and speech that has been bullied into agreeing with us.  We, a team of the most brilliant literary minds in the industry, use the junior-high word “sketchy” to condemn “sweetheart” book deals to people who may not be respectable in our opinion.  However, we also give Barrack Obama, who knew about and helped illegally surveil President Trump using illegitimate FISA warrants while covering up details that contradicted his claims three biographical book deals.   We do not care that he allowed the terrorist Antifa and BLM to thrive under his presidency.  We also can’t wait to chase the money surrounding the upcoming  memoir of drug-addict Hunter Biden  Though he allegedly sold America out to countries like China (here is one example) and alleged (with evidence) to be heavily involved with his father Joe Biden in doing so, we do not find any of this “sketchy” as we sit and talk amongst our girlfriends at recess.

“As members of the writing and publishing community of the United States, we affirm that participation in the administration of Donald Trump must be considered a uniquely mitigating criterion for publishing houses when considering book deals.”

Translation: We only talk to other leftists who got humanities degrees and work in our field.  We are democrats and despise any politicians who actually pose a threat to the implementation of our far-left ideologies.

“Consequently, we believe: No participant in an administration that caged children, performed involuntary surgeries on captive women, and scoffed at science as millions were infected with a deadly virus should be enriched by the almost rote largesse of a big book deal. And no one who incited, suborned, instigated, or otherwise supported the January 6, 2021 coup attempt should have their philosophies remunerated and disseminated through our beloved publishing houses.”

Translation: We do not care that the “cages” were created by Obama and that Biden will separate children from parents, too.  We support experimental biological agents that we call “novel vaccines” developed under duress with absolutely no long-term studies and no liability.  We also label ourselves scientific clergy, reserving the sole right to tell you what is science and which science profits to follow–even as they change their minds or outright lie from week to week, like Dr. Fauci.  We ignore the fact that Donald Trump specifically told people to be “peaceful” and “patriotic” and that his movement has always been one of peace and that he we the least interventionalist president since at least Jimmy Carter and perhaps prior to FDR.  Our publishing houses are beloved, sacred, hallowed grounds that should be recognized as national monuments and worshiped holy reverence.

“Son of Sam” laws exist to prevent criminals from benefiting financially from writing about their crimes. In that spirit, those who enabled, promulgated, and covered up crimes against the American people should not be enriched through the coffers of publishing.”

Translation: In our sincere and heartfelt crusade for fr0ee-speech, we seek to find or create laws to legitimize censoring anyone we disagree with.  Our favorite laws are those that help us label our intellectual counterparts as criminals, especially if they have any power.  It is truly criminal to not agree with us about everything.  And, if it isn’t, it should be.

“We are writers, editors, journalists, agents, and professionals in multiple forms of publishing. We believe in the power of words and we are tired of the industry we love enriching the monsters among us, and we will do whatever is in our power to stop it.”

Translation: Did we mention how awesome we are? We mostly purchased expensive humanities degrees from elite leftist universities in subjects that no one cares about that advisors let us make up.  We each need a far-left government to use tax dollars to pay for our useless overpriced $200,000 student loans.  An average intellect could do what we do without schooling, and that threatens us. We need to justify the insurmountable cost of our schooling and the indoctrinating psychosis with which is has infected us by using our media platforms to bully successful people who might want to write a book.  We are small people.  We are small minds.

Here  is the list of the 250 small minds that signed this letter:
