After eBay announced Thursday its plans to scrub the site of Dr. Seuss books deemed “offensive,” a number of social media users expressed outrage and alleged a double standard over the continuing sales of copies of hateful books such as Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” on the retail site.

“So @eBay bans @DrSeuss, but Hitler’s #MeinKampf is allowed,” tweeted Rabbi Yisroel Kahan.

Copies of “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” will cease publication and be pulled from stores like eBay. At the time this article was published, copies of all six books remain for sale on eBay.

This reporter reached out to eBay on Thursday, giving them over 15 hours to respond. However, no response was given.

At the time of publication, copies of “Mein Kampf” remain on eBay.

After Dr. Seuss Enterprises announced Tuesday its plans to stop publication and licensing of the six books due to racist and insensitive imagery, a number of companies have ceased sales of the books.

Some have stood against the move, like The New York Public Library and Denver Public Library, who say they will keep the children’s books on shelves.

Stacy Abrams: ‘No such thing as heartbeat at 6 weeks’, ‘manufactured’ for men to ‘take control of a woman’s body’

“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams claimed during an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta last week. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”

As National Review reports, even her own man-hating rhetoric is antithetical to the website of Planned Parenthood which said a “very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop” during the fifth to sixth week of pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood later amended its website to more closely reflect pro-abortion messaging against heartbeat laws, which ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Now the site says a “part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity” during that time.

Abrams is running for governor in Georgia in a rematch against incumbent Governor Brian Kemp. Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018 by more than 54,000 votes. Additionally, Abrams has never concededto Kemp and has claimed the 2018 election was “stolen from Georgians.”

Abrams words were to suggest that Georgia’s heartbeat law shouldn’t be referred to as the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill.” Her reasoning? Because “that’s medically false, biologically a lie.”

When The View co-host Alyssa Farah asked Abrams “Do you think there should be any legal limits on abortion, such as the third trimester or viability?” Abrams responded: “I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision…Arbitrary politically-defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues.”

“Abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision … The limit should not be made by politicians who don’t understand basic biology or apparently basic morality,” she added.

Kemp is up 6.6 percentage points in RCP polling average over Abrams.
