On Tuesday, Dr. Seuss Enterprises announced that six books written by the famous children's author would no longer be printed due to “racially insensitive imagery.” Because naturally, Theodor Seuss Geisel wrote those books to indoctrinate racist beliefs into young children, not to entertain them.
But a substantial amount of buyers chose to ignore the woke mob’s latest ineffectual attempt to combat racism in their current example of "the Streisand effect," which is "a consequence of failed censorship attempts." A day after the announcement, the Daily Wire reported that Dr. Seuss books were flying off the shelves on Amazon. By Wednesday, nine Seuss titles were on their top 10 bestselling books, and 30 were on the Top 50 books.
Take that, cancel culture.
“The Cat in the Hat,” “Green Eggs and Ham,” and “Fox in Socks” were among those listed on the top 10 bestselling books.
Meanwhile, prices on the banned Seuss books have been dramatically rising. According to prices indicated in the Daily Wire article and listed on Amazon - as of this writing - a copy of “If I Ran The Zoo” now costs $1,500; two used “On Beyond Zebra” books now sell for $169 and $768; prices for “Scrambled Eggs Super” range from $650 to $2,000, and two copies of “The Cat’s Quizzer” have mounted up to over $1,000.
