When it comes to free flow of ideas and books, Amazon has always been extremely fair. The only outright censorship I can think of on this platform was when they pulled an e-book on how to groom and lure prepubescent children for sex (which they only banned after having defended it first).
I think it’s pretty universal consensus to say that how-to books on raping children are obscene speech, not free speech. Nevertheless, Amazon still hosts a number of novels and books dealing with incest, pedophilia, bestiality and other disgusting crap.
Yet, when one book, “The Pedophile’s Guide To Love and Pleasure” was yanked, some tech journalists were fuming at this puncture wound against “free speech,” and a debate on what should and shouldn’t be allowed raged.
Enter the Holocaust lobby.
After having been pressured by Jews, Amazon is beginning to purge books written by engineers, academics and historians on the laughable inconsistencies of the urban legend known as the Holocaust. Many of the more memorable claims associated with the Holocaust that were questioned by revisionists, such as human lampshades and soap, have in recent years been acknowledged as lies by Israel’s Yad Vashem itself.
Recently, in an eye-brow raising admission, Jews confessed that the 5 million Poles, Gypsies and homosexuals they claimed for decades were gassed at Auschwitz and other camps was fiction made up by Simon Wiesenthal!
They were able to literally invent 5 million World War II casualties and get away with it for decades. That is because there is an unspoken rule that you can’t contradict a Jew talking about the Holocaust, no matter how big and transparently fraudulent the claim is.
The only reason the 6 million figure continues to stick is that you’re not allowed to question it.
The online retailer Amazon has stopped selling three Holocaust-denial books after Jewish groups voiced growing frustration that the website was giving a platform to antisemites.
Amazon has been criticised for years over the revisionist titles for sale on its website, but the recent upsurge in antisemitism across America promoted Robert Rozett, a senior official at Yad Vashem, to write to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos last month calling for immediate action.
On Wednesday morning, the three titles that Mr Rozett had complained about were unavailable for purchase. Two were not showing up in searches, and one was listed but with a note saying that it was under review and could not be bought. This was the case for both US and UK stores.
Mr Rozett said the company had taken a “positive first step” which showed that they were listening to him and other Jewish groups that echoed his demand, such as the World Jewish Congress.
The titles in question were: Holocaust: The Greatest Lie Ever Told, by Eleanor Wittakers; The Hoax of the Twentieth Century: The Case Against the Presumed Extermination of European Jewry, by Arthur R Butz and Did Six Million Really Die? by Richard Harwood.
Amazon did not answer a request to comment for this article, and did not inform Mr Rozett that the books were being taken down.
Where are the “free speech” defenders now?
Not one journalist or free speech advocate has written anything about this. Free speech is only for child molesters.
This outrage is only the beginning, as the slithering cynic Rozett alludes to. Imagine if Scientologists, Mormons or any other eccentric and poorly perceived minority demanded Amazon take down criticism of their beliefs and agendas. The complaints would get automatically filed… in the garbage bin!
There is more proof for Mormonism than for the Holocaust. But Amazon happily sells anti-Mormon books.
Why is this any different?
Because (((someone))), somewhere kicked over a few tombstones and made some prank calls.
We need to raise our voices about this because it is only the beginning. As a monopoly for e-books and other informational sources, Amazon has both an ethical and legal duty to protect the right to access any and all ideas.
It’s time we demand self-described free speech groups to defend real free speech, which is the right to criticize anything you want from any point of view in the realm of politics, science, history and other pursuits.
Contact all media entities you think care about free speech with this information. Bring this up on the Tucker Carlson Reddit and get him to bring Jeff Bezos on air to explain why he took these books down. Frame it in terms of free speech, not taking a position on the Holocaust itself, people must know that this is a threat to everyone’s freedom to convey ideas.
We need to especially fill the email boxes of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which covers Amazon.com every other day regarding privacy and free speech issues, yet has not written a word on this.
