Must Read? Seuss books canceled on Amazon, while Hitler best-seller for sale

Mein Kampf, the political and social manifesto written by Adolf Hitler, is for sale at Amazon.

But don’t try to buy any of the six children’s classic by Dr. Seuss that have banned.

The books in question by Dr. Seuss have been withdrawn by the Dr. Seuss Enterprises because the company now believes they portray people “in ways that are hurtful and wrong.”

Immediately after Seuss Enterprises removed the books from print, Amazon erased them from their online commerce. The books include:

And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry StreetIf I Ran the Zoo,McElligot’s Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, Scrambled Eggs Super!, and The Cat’s Quizzer.

“These books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong,” Dr Seuss Enterprises said in a statement.

eBay also began canceling the Seuss books from its sellers’ stores, although some antique book dealers are selling old copies of the children’s books for hundreds of dollars, such as this copy of McElligot’s Pool.

Amazon continues to sell copies of The Communist Manifesto, by Karl Marx, and the Unabomber Manifesto by serial bomber Ted Kaczynski.

  • Democrats read Mein Kampf to their children instead of Dr. Seuss.

  • I am pleased. I picked up McClligot’s pool at an Anchorage thrift store three years ago, though some of its pages are a bit tattered but still readable. I am sorry I didnt pick up Mulberry Street. Maybe I’ll be lucky finding it again. Its a wonderful sweet book to us, as is McElligot’s Pool, which makes us want to go out fishing and see what we can fish out.

    Probably be best for bible App readers get themselves a paper printed bible. One day the Bible Apps will be taken off the internet like Parler and we wont find any Bible to buy. Then, you will have to find a neighbor with a paper bible to share. Almost Everyone wants to live their own truth without it being questioned and examined under a Light brighter than our own light.

    • I hate banned book and censored Art culture.

  • I wish I had not tossed out those Dr. Seuss books, one could make a killing in this market!
    BTW, didn’t Alan Cranston try to get Hitler’s book banned back in what ’38? Long before he was the Senator from California. I think the courts threw out the notion of book banning.. Ah, America a place where free speech was once honored. RIP America.

  • It is the bible for Socialist Dems. Of course it’s for sale.

  • Herr Schicklgruber would be proud.

  • I can still buy “Mein Kampf” from Amazon … but not “Mulberry Street”?????? I remember “Little Black Sambo” disappearing off the school shelves many years ago, and even as a kid I understood why.
    But Mulberry Street?
    Why not Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs? Now there’s some kinky innuendos about multiple sex partners.
    What about Sleeping Beauty? The prince took advantage of an unconcious woman. Where’s #MeToo on that one?
    Through The Looking Glass? Glorification of illegal drugs.
    The Bible … oh yes, sex everywhere, spilling semen, carving trees into phallic symbols, extreme violence, killing of women and children, with fire and brimstone raining down on entire cities.
    The problem with stupid people is that when you tell them what they’re doing is stupid, they won’t get it … because that’s what stupid is all about.

    • My word-play got edited out. I had “Mein Kaput” in place of “Mein Kampf”.
      Actually, watching some of Suzanne’s edits is sort of entertaining. I considered throwing her some “bait” but no, she’s working hard enough for us already.

  • May I repeat myself again

    Ok all you Woke people
    Go to your safe/cry room and Just Stay There.

  • Stupid is as stupid does. Yeah I remember the spilling the seed on the ground part in the Bible. I remember when Noah got drunk and one of his boys raped him while he slept. Then where there was the time when the guy’s wife couldn’t have babies so he banged the servant. Knocked her up, then whamo…..all of a sudden wife can get pregnant when she’s about 75. But they left out all the good stuff of the Bible. The Mary Magdalene stuff and all that.

    • There’s a few who can read the Bible with understanding. Very few preachers or teachers … they have monetized religion in place of saving faith.
      They believe? The demons believe, but it doesn’t do them any good.
      Even today the words ring true … “Do as they say, but don’t do as they do.”
      “Come out from amongst them.” Who is “them”? The false, the apostate religion..

  • I’ll take green eggs and spam over hot latte and croissants ……..anyday.

    • …….served by a barista who is woke…..
