  • Particularly liked “Amazon Blocks Ad for Book Investigating Black Lives Matter — Daily Signal”

    The “woke” employees hired to do censorship at Amazon, same young Marxist bunch as doing the censorship at Facebook, Twitter, et al. Amazon does the same type of censorship of their comments, as I learned the other week when they blocked my review of a quinine water beverage for “violating community standards”. I was invited to rewrite it, and that was similarly blocked. Facebook, Twitter and Amazon will all be in the running with the CCP when nominations are taken for the new “Axis of Evil”.

    The censors make me think of Yossarian, the character in Joseph Heller’s novel, Catch 22, who relished his job as a wartime military censor. Would like to see the job description for those doing the censoring –Project Veritas, Wikileaks or alternative media need to find a “leaker”.
