eBay Bans Sale of Dr. Seuss Books, Calling them “Offensive Material”
Would it just be quicker to tell us what we can sell?
The latest literature to come under attack by the loony left is Dr. Seuss. eBay has banned sales of the books, labelling them “offensive material.”
Adam Townsend posted a screenshot from an eBay listing showing that sales of the books have been suspended because they violate the company’s “Offensive Materials” policy.
“Listings that promote or glorify hatred, violence, or discrimination aren’t allowed,” the message said, adding, “As a courtesy, we have ended your item and refunded your selling fees, and as long as you do not re-list the item, there will be no negative impact to your account.”
The controversy surrounding the books began last week when a far-left group called Learning for Justice claimed that the books, which were written by progressive liberal author Theodor Seuss Geisel, contained “orientalism, anti-blackness, and white supremacy,” The study asserted, “Of the 2,240 (identified) human characters, there are 45 of colour representing two percent of the total number of human characters. Of the 45 characters of colour, 43 “exhibited behaviours and appearances that align with harmful and stereotypical Orientalist tropes.”
Despite how it may appear, those claiming it were not emailing from some secure mental institution, we are actually supposed to take these idiots seriously. And eBay have.
Unbelievably so have Dr Seuss Enterprises who in response to the study announced it would cease publishing six of the author’s books because they “portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong.
The Dr Seuss books are just the latest in a growing number of literature that has been targeted by the loony left and readily supported by the mainstream media who applaud every demented book ban, suggesting that this type of censorship has some type of morality to it, never stopping to think: When in history has book banning ever been done by the good guys?
