    We're Asking eBay To Stop Selling Lies

    Despite current events, eBay continues hosting items promoting empirically false slogans and ideas related to the 2020 election. This merchandise is dangerous  propaganda targeted to those who have already attacked the seat of our democracy and remain loyal to a single man at the expensive of civil society. eBay Global Impact has told us they consider these 'political items.'  Amazon has shown leadership in removing merchandise like this from its own site. Now Facebook has banned 'stop the steal' content, 69 days after the election.  We call on eBay to join major internet companies and do the same immediately. This merchandise includes t-shirts, hats, decals, signs, buttons, flags, books and more that are accessories for those supporting sedition and domestic terror.  Condoning the repetition of this lie has already led to violence and so violate eBay's own policy on prohibited items. Now especially, in this dangerous moment, these lies must not be given a pass.  Yet eBay continues to promote them even now, as our divided nation faces credible threats--clearly and presently--following the deadly attacks at the US Capitol on January 6th, 2021. The company writes in an email dated January 11, 2001: "At eBay, we have a strict policy against hate and discrimination to ensure our platform remains a safe, trusted and inclusive environment for our global community of buyers and sellers. While we are not removing politically affiliated merchandise from the site, we will remove any merchandise glorifying the violence incited on Capitol Hill." The time has come to stand up for the truth. The 2020 election was free and fair and has been duly certified by the United States Government.  Claims to the contrary fuel violence and hate.  We call on eBay to enforces it's own policies and protect it's good name by disassociating the brand from these lies.
