CANCEL CULTURE: eBay Now Banning Dr. Seuss Books Because Leftists Say He’s ‘Racist’

San Jose, California, USA - March 29, 2018: eBay sign at eBay 's headquarters in Silicon Valley. eBay Inc. is a multinational e-commerce corporation.

Online auction site eBay announced this week that it would be cancelling all auctions of the six Dr. Seuss books that leftists now say are “racist.”

This week, Democrats, liberals, and leftists rose up as one to accuse Theodor Seuss Geisel, otherwise known as Dr. Seuss, of being a racist whose work is dangerous for kids to see.

The company that controls the Dr. Seuss estate announced early this week that it would withdraw the publication of the six books that the left has targeted.

“We are committed to action. To that end, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, working with a panel of experts, including educators, reviewed our catalog of titles and made the decision last year to cease publication and licensing of the following titles: And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, If I Ran the Zoo, McElligot’s Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, Scrambled Eggs Super!, and The Cat’s Quizzer. These books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong,” Dr. Seuss Enterprises said in its statement.

And now eBay is jumping on board the book burning bandwagon, telling the Wall Street Journal that the auctioner “is currently sweeping our marketplace to remove these items.”

The auction company now claims that Dr. Seuss all of a sudden “violates” its “offensive materials” policy. And yet, the company sees nothing wrong with sales of Mao’s Little Red Book, or Hitler’s Mein Kampf Imagine that?

The eBay spokesperson added that the book auctions will all be removed, but that the sweep will take time to achieve and some auctions may complete before the company gets to them.

As of Thursday, there were hundreds of auctions of the six banned books still live. Some were bringing in bids of up to $2,000 and more.
