No dissent allowed: Amazon.com bans book for questioning the government narrative on Sandy Hook
by: J. D. Heyes
The Nazis burned books in an attempt to erase historical records that Chancellor/Dictator Adolph Hitler did not like and did not want to deal with. The Nazis were hardly the first to do so.
Throughout antiquity and the Middle Ages, the burning of books critical of regimes or simply as an attempt to destroy an entire culture took place, stretching from before the Early Modern Period (1492 to the turn of the 19th century) through the Industrial Revolution.
Perhaps one of the most famous – or infamous – cultural purges began in 1966 in China, when communist leader Mao Zedong sought to reassert control over both China and his party. As noted by the website MassViolence.org:
The Chinese Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) was a historical tragedy launched by Mao Zedong and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). It claimed the lives of several million people and inflicted cruel and inhuman treatments on hundreds of million people. However, 40 years after it ended, the total number of victims of the Cultural Revolution and especially the death toll of mass killings still remain a mystery both in China and overseas.
Such horrible things could never happen in the U.S., especially with the First Amendment – right?
Well, there haven't been any widespread killings or attempts to wipe out American culture through the mass elimination of literature, there are book bannings taking place, nonetheless, and ironically at Amazon.com, which first began as, primarily, an online book seller, ironically enough.
As noted by Natural News editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, in a recent column, the giant online retailer just banned a book that the corporate masters simply disagreed with.
The Left always bans what it doesn't like because Leftists hate freedom
"In a stunning demonstration of online book burning, Amazon.com has just banned a book because of its contents. The book Nobody Died at Sandy Hook consists of analysis from a dozen contributor authors, and it's edited by Jim Fetzer, Ph.D. The book concludes that Sandy Hook was a staged FEMA drill carried out by the government to push an agenda of nationwide gun control."
Adams went on to note that the authors' conclusions are not the issue, or shouldn't be.
"Whether the authors' conclusions are well-founded or complete lunacy isn't the point here," he wrote. "Amazon.com has selectively targeted this book for censorship due to the political incorrectness of the author's conclusions. Remember, Amazon.com went out of its way to ban Confederate flags[*] in the aftermath of another shooting, enforcing a grotesque, almost Stalinist political correctness in its decision to pull Confederate flag merchandise from its online store (including children's toys like the General Lee car from Dukes of Hazzard)."
*But not Nazi flags or paraphernalia, by the way.
And speaking of that, as Adams noted, the online retail giant is rather selective (read hypocritical) when it comes to deciding what is and is not "worthy" of your money, time and attention. For instance, Amazon.com has no issues selling a book that boldly asserts that Earth is flat and that we've all been duped by a massive "fairy tale" conspiracy with things like satellite photos of our planet and such.
Also, just 70 years after the modern era's most evil, diabolical leader walked the earth, Amazon.com has no problem selling his book (warning: Nazi alert).
What's next to be banned?
Fetzer told Adams that Amazon.com is setting a dangerous precedent.
"Amazon gave me no reason," Fetzer told Natural News. "The situation is completely absurd... if you disagree with a government version of anything, Amazon can pull your book."
Think about that – what's next? Politically incorrect versions of American history? All books about firearms? Any book laying out Catholic opposition to abortion or pointing out where, in the Bible, Christians are urged to "hate the sin" of homosexuality but "love the sinner"?
"Will books on Thomas Jefferson soon be memory holed by the Amazon Ministry of Truth?" Adams wonders. "What about books that question the cancer industry or Monsanto's GMOs? Notably, Jeff Bezos is both the founder of Amazon.com and the owner of the Washington Post, a highly politicized paper whose 'science' writers parrot Monsanto talking points with absolute obedience."
