“Offensive Material”: eBay Bans Sale of Dr. Seuss Books

Digital Fahrenheit 451 now a reality.

The purge of Dr. Seuss books continues after it was revealed that eBay has banned sales of the books, labeling 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 relist 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,” according to a study.

The study asserted, “Of the 2,240 (identified) human characters, there are 45 of color representing two percent of the total number of human characters. Of the 45 characters of color, 43 “exhibited behaviors and appearances that align with harmful and stereotypical Orientalist tropes.”

This prompted Dr. Seuss Enterprises to announce it would cease publishing six of the author’s books because they “portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong.”

Despite this, sales for one of the books on Amazon surged by a staggering 5.7 million percent, meaning the company was basically rewarded for caving in to the woke mob.

“If outdated political ideas are now banned, the list of books eBay refuses to list will be miles long,” writes Cassandra Fairbanks.

Meanwhile, Fahrenheit 451 moves closer to being a reality with each passing day.

Major New Report Finds Online Censorship is Self-Defeating

Makes people distrust authorities event more.

Published

on

A major new report by the esteemed Royal Society finds that online censorship is self-defeating and only causes individuals to distrust authorities even more.

Of course, the more cynical observer would assert that online censorship isn’t driven by the benevolent motivation to halt “dangerous misinformation.”

But by the very malevolent motivation to bury the truth.

Why The Regime Hates Joe Rogan

The real agenda.

Published

on

The regime is targeting Joe Rogan because they’re frustrated at their inability to censor podcasts the same way they have blacklisted content on other social media platforms.

That and Rogan’s audience being more than 10 times larger than CNN’s best primetime show.

Report: German Government Considering Shutting Down Telegram

Because anti-lockdown activists are using it to organise

A report in the German newspaper Die Welt suggests that the government there is considering taking action to shut down messaging app Telegram because people opposed to COVID restrictions and lockdowns are using it to organise protests and share information.

The report contains an interview with German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser who stated “We cannot rule this out,” when asked if the platform will be targeted for censorship.

“A shutdown would be grave and clearly a last resort. All other options must be exhausted first,” Faeser clarified.

The minister also told the newspaper that while it is currently unclear what legal action would be needed to shut down the platform, the German government is in consultation with the European Union regarding potential regulation of it.

The Epoch Times notes that in Germany, which has implemented some of the most severe pandemic restrictions, “Telegram has been used as a hub of communication for the protest movement against the measures established to fight the CCP virus, including lockdowns, intermittent mask mandates, and restrictions for the unvaccinated.”

Telegram has been shut down or blocked in other countries including Iran, China, Pakistan, India, Thailand, and Russia.

The platform saw a huge surge in users last year after Facebook owned Watts App introduced a controversial privacy update which led to concerns that the app would hand over user data to its parent company. It also came at the same time as President Trump’s purge from big tech social media platforms.

Telegram founder Pavel Durov warned that people are “being held hostage by tech monopolies.”

In addition to being independent from big tech, Telegram promises robust end-to-end encryption, ensuring messages remain private.

This has made Telegram a target for authoritarians and big tech monopolists.

In the U.S. lobbyist group The Coalition for a Safer Web even filed a lawsuit against Apple in an effort to get Telegram removed from the app store, claiming that it allows ‘extremists’ to spread ‘hate speech’.
