White House Pressured Amazon to Censor Books Talking About Coronavirus Vax

Who could possibly be surprised by this, after we saw that the Biden Administration was censoring Twitter?

This is totally illegal, and blatant grounds for impeachment and imprisonment of the president.

But nothing happens.

New York Post:

The Biden administration pressured Amazon to censor books related to COVID-19 vaccines in early 2021 citing concerns that the material contained “propaganda” and “misinformation,” internal company emails released by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) appear to show.

The documents were obtained by the House Judiciary Committee and the Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government via subpoena, Jordan said in a X thread Monday, which he dubbed, “THE AMAZON FILES.”

Who can we talk to about the high levels of propaganda and misinformation and disinformation of [sic] Amazon?” Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior advisor for COVID-19 response, wrote to the online retailer in a March 2, 2021, email, released by Jordan.

If you search for ‘vaccines’ under books, I see what comes up,” Slavitt wrote in a follow up message that same day. “I haven’t looked beyond that but if that’s what’s on the surface, it’s concerning.”

Along with Anthony Fauci and Zeke Emanuel, Slavitt was a key villain of the coronavirus hoax.

He’s Jewish, by the way. I don’t know if anyone was wondering about that, but he’s Jewish.

Amazon officials initially balked at performing “a manual intervention” to remove certain book titles from appearing, arguing that it would be “too visible” and lead to further scrutiny.

“We will not be doing a manual intervention today,” an email between Amazon executives reads. “The team/PR feels very strongly that it is too visible, and will further compound the Harry/Sally narrative (which is getting the Fox News treatment today apparently), and won’t fix the problem long-term … because of customer behavior associates.”

Amazon defended its book-selling practices in another March 2, 2021, internal email, noting that the company’s guidelines “do not specifically address content about vaccines” and that “retailers are different than social media communities.”

A week later, on March 9, 2021, Amazon met with White House officials, according to the emails, and the company’s “top talking points” going in was whether the Biden administration wanted books blacklisted by the website or suppressed in search results.

“Is the Admin asking us to remove books, or are they more concerned about search results/order (or both)?” reads a company email.

In another email discussing an upcoming negative media story on COVID-19 vaccine books being sold by Amazon, an official acknowledges that the company “is feeling pressure from the White House Taskforce on this issue as well.”

The pressure applied by the Biden administration apparently worked, as the company put “anti-vax books” under a “Do Not Promote” order the same day Amazon officials met with the White House.

Anytime the government tells you to do something, there is an implicit threat that the government will do something to you if you don’t do what they tell you to do. It’s never “just a suggestion.” It’s a mafia style tactic.

This is no different from an order. The government can claim it is legally different, but everyone understands the implicit threat, and a court would determine that there was an implicit threat.

However, no prosecutor will attempt to bring these White House censorship cases to criminal court. Instead, when these things are exposed, it basically means nothing. Nothing happens as a result. No one goes to prison and no policy is changed.

We live in a democracy, which means that the government can do whatever they want to you, so long as they are able to ensure that the majority of the Congress goes along with whatever they are doing.
