Dr. Seuss books dominate Amazon bestseller list after some of late author’s works canceled

Dr. Seuss Enterprises’ decision to stop publishing six of the late author’s books over concerns of racism appears to have paid off.

Amid the controversy over their action, Dr. Seuss books absolutely dominated Amazon’s top 20 bestsellers list on Friday.

What are the details?

On Tuesday, the business in charge of the beloved author’s estate put out a statement on Seuss’s birthday announcing that they decided last year to stop publishing or licensing the books, “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,” saying the “books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong.”

The move sparked praise from people who felt it was a move toward social justice and outrage from folks who argued it was over-the-line censorship.

As of Friday morning, NBC News reported, 15 of the top 20 bestselling books on Amazon were Dr. Seuss books, and by evening, the number of Dr. Seuss books in the top 20 was still at 14.

Coming in at #1 was “The Cat in the Hat,” followed by a Seuss beginner book collection in the #2 spot. Third was occupied by “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” and fourth was “Green Eggs and Ham.” Another class Seuss book, “One fish two fish red fish blue fish,” came in at #5.

Other books in the top 20 bestsellers list that were not by Seuss included works by Stephen King and Jordan Peterson. There were also several more Dr. Seuss works beyond the top 20, with ten more included in the list of the top 50.

Anything else?

As for the Dr. Seuss works that have now been “canceled,” TheBlaze reported earlier this week that the books deemed “offensive” have surged in value as people scramble to get their hands on the editions now that they are no longer in circulation.

Online auction site eBay has since banned the selling of the six books, scrubbing them from their website and announcing, “At eBay, we have a strict policy against hate and discrimination to ensure our platform remains a safe, trusted and inclusive for our global community of buyers and sellers.”

Meanwhile, manifestos written by murderous dictators Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and Benito Mussolini are still available on the site.

Blazetv Coronavirus Intelwars LIES list Scam Steve deace Steve deace show

LIST: Lies, Damned Lies, & Coronavirus

BlazeTV host Steve Deace brought the heat on Monday when he blasted the media over coronavirus lies. Deace broke down the truth vs. the scam of all things COVID.
Scam List

First on the list, a statement made by Ohio State Athletic Director Gene Smith, who said America was handling coronavirus the “worst in the world.”Deace explained that America sees more cases due to a higher volume of testing.

Scam two, Former FDA big wig Scott Gottlieb paddled panic porn about which states successfully controlled the spread of the virus and which states floundered. The fraud of Scott’s opinion became evident when he praised New York for “crushing the virus.”

Deace gave the analogy of a life toe to Scott’s grossly misleading account of New York’s COVID response.”Saying New York crushed coronavirus is like praising your teenage son for keeping his abstinence by.cutting his penis off,” Deace said. He added that one out of every four coronavirus deaths is from NY.

Scam three, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott mandated that all Texans must mask-up when leaving their home. Never mind the study out of the University of Minnesota that found zero proof any face-covering other than an N-95 mask fitted tightly on the face will prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Deace debunked lie after lie. And in pure Deace form, presented his scam list with a sense of humor.

“I can do this all day,” Deace said with a smirk.
