Amazon Decides They Want in on the Censoring Movement, Too

    Remember when America was all about freedom of speech? It didn’t matter where we landed on the political spectrum. There was a simple answer to everything: agree to disagree.

    Now, it seems that companies want to censor those who have something different to say. If you don’t have the same views as they do, they’ll censor you.

    Facebook and Twitter have gotten into the habit of silencing members of the GOP.

    YouTube has chosen to censor Christian organizations that want to speak out against abortion.

    Amazon doesn’t want to be outdone. They want in on the censoring movement, too. Deleting Parlor wasn’t enough. Now, they want to take away the voices of authors.

    Amazon wants to be clear: they’re all in for the transgender movement.

    Fantastic, glad they were able to establish that. Yeah for them.

    The problem is that they also want to establish that they’ll destroy anyone who isn’t in favor of the transgender movement.

    Whoa…we have freedom of speech. We have freedom of press. Shouldn’t a book be able to stay published regardless of where the author’s views lie?

    One would think, but Amazon has chosen to remove a bestselling book because it speaks against the transgender movement.

    Ryan T. Anderson published a book in 2018 called “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment.” It became an immediate bestseller across all platforms, including Amazon.

    Anderson was a Heritage Foundation research fellow when the book was published. He’s since gone on to become the president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

    Amazon decided that enough was enough. They removed the links to both the Kindle e-book version and the hard copy version of Anderson’s book.

    Ryan T. Anderson made it known that Amazon took his book down by tweeting about it. He also made the comment that his other four books “are still available (for now).”

    Anyone and everyone can have an opinion. Anyone and everyone should be allowed to express that opinion. Anderson isn’t just someone off the street to write a book, either. He’s well-educated on the topic of the transgender movement. And he has concerns that deserve a voice.

    Within the book, Anderson made the claim that children who experience gender dysphoria are being poorly served by being given medical treatments such as hormone replacements and puberty blockers.

    What about therapy? What about waiting to see if a child grows out of the dysphoria?

    Anderson argues that research has proven that 80 to 95 percent of children suffering from gender dysphoria outgrow it. Their mental health doesn’t suddenly improve because they undergo sexual reassignment surgery.

    Gender dysphoria doesn’t belong in the transgender movement. It needs to be attributed to the mental health crisis of America.

    Many conservatives are concerned about Amazon’s move to suddenly block the book two years after being published simply because they don’t like the views being portrayed.

    As Professor Robert P. George of Princeton University tweeted, “We need to make clear to the oligarchs at places like Amazon that trying to make dissenting ideas inaccessible is intolerable and won’t work.”

    He goes on to recommend that when Amazon blacklists a book, it needs to be purchased from another seller or even directly from the publisher. More importantly, it needs to be read since it contains views that Amazon wants to keep away from Americans.

    Amazon didn’t even bother to let Anderson know that his book was removed. Most authors are notified when their book is taken down with a reason. They’re given ways to correct the errors in order to be re-published.

    Anderson only found out because people were trying to buy the book and could not find it.

    Amazon’s decisions are yet another example of Big Tech trying to overstep the bounds of Americans’ constitutional rights. They cannot continue to push their views on political, medical, and transgender debates to the point that they mute views that go against their own.

    14. I’ve been surfing online greater than 3 hours lately, but I by
      no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
      It’s lovely value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet shall be a lot more useful than ever before.

    15. When I originally commented I appear to have clicked on the
      -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I receive four emails with the same comment.
      Is there an easy method you are able to remove me from that
      service? Thank you!

    16. Hi there all, here every person is sharing these
      kinds of experience, therefore it’s good to read this weblog, and I used to visit this blog everyday.

    17. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time
      a comment is added I get three e-mails with
      the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

      Bless you!

    18. It’s in fact very difficult in this active life to listen news on TV, therefore
      I only use web for that reason, and get the latest news.

    19. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.
      I think that you need to publish more on this issue, it may not be a taboo subject but generally people do not speak about such issues.

      To the next! All the best!!

    20. My relatives every time say that I am wasting my time here at net,
      however I know I am getting know-how every day by reading thes nice articles.

    21. It’s perfect time to make some plans for the future
      and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I want to suggest you few interesting

      I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
      I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my

    52. Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored at work so I decided
      to browse your website on my iphone during lunch
      break. I love the information you present here and can’t wait to
      take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my phone ..
      I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, good blog!

    53. Hello! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.

    55. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you

      A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

    56. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems
      of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive
      content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but
      it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without
      my permission. Do you know any methods to help prevent
      content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.

    57. Whats up are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog
      world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to
      make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

    58. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and
      was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming
      having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet
      savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

      Cheers
