People, companies and things are being “deemed offensive” by other people and companies. But the question remains, if something is offensive to some but not to others, who are the some to take away the questionable material from the people that don’t see anything wrong with it?
Jumping on the outrage bandwagon begun earlier this week by Dr. Seuss Enterprises, Barnes & Noble and Amazon, online marketplace eBay has decided to remove any listings of the six books that those in charge of Seuss’ legacy have deemed offensive. Amazon still lists the books for sale, but only from third party sellers and at a premium.
“EBay is currently sweeping our marketplace to remove these items,” an eBay spokeswoman said in an email, according to the Wall Street Journal.
It’s funny what passes as “offensive” these days and what doesn’t to the “woke” mob, whose intelligence matches their ridiculous demands.
As conservative commentator Mark Dice pointed out in his Friday video on YouTube, eBay still lists “The Anarchist Cookbook,” which teaches people — mostly activists — how to build a bomb, but Dr. Seuss is too edgy for the plebs.
You can also find Nazi German dictator and murderer Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” without fail on eBay, but God forbid someone reads too much into a doodle Seuss did in a children’s book.
While I’m not saying that those books should be banned, because things only get worse when you ban things, I hope all of you have had just about enough of the “woke” regressives — aka “progressives” ridiculous and legitimately stupid double standards.
