It seems we have to make our own social media platforms, our own video viewing sites, banks, schools, payment processors (getting a little ridiculous if you ask me) and now it seems we’ll have to make some kind of conservative Amazon while we’re at it.
According to The Daily Wire:
Conservatives are sounding the alarm about an updated Amazon policy that bans books the ubiquitous billion-dollar company deems offensive or includes so-called “hate speech.”
As noted by The Daily Wire, Amazon has ramped up its censorship on conservative views in recent weeks. For example, a popular documentary on U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was banned from their streaming service this past week. Before that move, the company deplatformed conservative Ryan Anderson’s book critical of gender theory, “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Movement.”
When Just the News reached out to Amazon over the ban on Anderson’s book, the outlet said the company directed them to a page outlining their “Content Guidelines for Books.” Under a section labeled “Offensive Content,” Amazon states that they “don’t sell certain content including content that we determine is hate speech, promotes the abuse or sexual exploitation of children, contains pornography, glorifies rape or pedophilia, advocates terrorism, or other material we deem inappropriate or offensive.”
Journalists and political commentators have pointed out how these liberal corporations are now forcing conservatives into their own “parallel economy”, yet even when we try to create those alternatives, the Left strikes with the force of government. Democrat lawmakers are being pressured to destroy One America News Network, banks are violating their own privacy rules in order to target conservatives, and there is even an effort at our friend Remso W. Martinez points out to censor and remove podcasts from popular apps such as Apple Podcasts.
What does it all it mean? It means they are scared, and that free people united can’t easily be defeated.
We’ll make our own server farms, our own internet if we have to, you name it. There are millions of patriots out there who can come up with the ways and means of ensuring no one can ever be canceled by the progressive cancel culture ever again.
Work hard, pray, and stay optimistic through all adversity and challenges.
