A new word, may you would spell it differently.
First consider the taking of print of the six Dr. Seuss books.
Can’t say I remember ever reading any of them to our son, but someone must have found them threatening.
In our capitalist nation, people owning them offered to sell them on e-Bay.
Now e-Bay has say, “No, no.”
Too threatening. I guess.
But as National Review’s Dan McLaughlin notes:
This is particularly absurd given that several of the books contain “offensive imagery” only in the most extenuated sense of irritating left-wing zealots.
You can still find plenty of listings on eBay for bongs, sex toys, provocative semi-nude photos of porn stars, old issues of Penthouse, framed covers of Hustler, handguns, rifles, swords, machetes, even copies of Mein Kampf, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and The Anarchist Cookbook.
Tintin in the Congo is still for sale, and so is Chairman Mao’s Little Red Book.
But apparently, On Beyond Zebra is beyond the pale.
And Pajamas Media reports what the U.S. Attorney’s Office is doing in Portland, Oregon:
Under Biden Administration, Feds Dismiss Dozens of Charges Against Portland Rioters
As the Biden administration has taken the reins of the Department of Justice, the feds have dismissed dozens of charges against violent rioters in Portland, Oregon.
They have dropped charges such as assault on a law enforcement officer, arson, and other violent crimes.
Many have been dropped with prejudice, meaning they can’t be re-litigated in the future.
According to a local news outlet [KGW], federal prosecutors have dismissed more than one-third of the pending charges from last summer’s violent protests in Portland.
The outgoing U.S. attorney for Oregon, Billy Williams, said in an interview that nobody in their right mind thinks this is OK.

The dismissals occurred, according to people interviewed, were probably because of lack of resources or insufficient evidence.
