The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum revealed that…
On May 10, 1933, University students burned upwards of 25,000 “un-German” books in Berlin’s Opera Square. Some 40,000 people gather to hear Joseph Goebbels deliver a fiery address: “No to decadence and moral corruption!”
As part of an effort to align German arts and culture with Nazi ideas (Gleichschaltung), university students in college towns across Germany burned thousands of books they considered to be “un-German,” heralding an era of state censorship and cultural control. Students threw books pillaged mostly from public and university libraries onto bonfires with great ceremony, band-playing, and so-called “fire oaths.” The students sought to purify German literature of “foreign,” especially Jewish, and other immoral influences. Among the authors whose works were burned was Helen Keller, an American whose belief in social justice encouraged her to champion disabled persons, pacifism, improved conditions for industrial workers, and women’s voting rights.
Now, once again Marxist based Fascism is rearing its ugly head, as it revives the Nazi book burning efforts, but this time as ‘part of an effort to align American arts and culture with now radically based Marxist based Fascism, which the Democrat Party has now embraced wholeheartedly! However, this time instead of university students in college towns across Germany burning thousands of books they considered to be “un-German,” American corporations are either refusing to publish, distribute, or digitally burning Conservative authored books, in their attempt to herald an era of state censorship and cultural control in America!
Left-wing journalists and activists are applying pressure to Amazon and other companies to purge not only right-wing extremist works from their shelves and digital libraries, but they are now shifting towards more mainstream works, in their effort to push the Marxist ideology throughout Universities and across the nation, from sea to shining sea!
In fact, one of the most recent books banned by Amazon includes a book co-authored by English Islam critic and independent commentator Tommy Robinson. It is a frightening revelation, as Amazon alone accounts for nearly 50% of physical book sales, and 83% of e-book sales, making a massive dent in Conservative authors ability to make money, or reach readers!
Breitbart News reported that…
Amazon began its new round of purges by targeting the white nationalist fringe. In February, the tech giant banned a number of books from white identitarian Jared Taylor, and a book called The White Nationalist Manifesto by Greg Johnson.
This followed bans on Holocaust revisionist books in 2017, and a purge of all books by controversial pickup blogger and author Daryush “Roosh” Valizadeh in 2018.
As with financial blacklisting, a censorship spree that starts by targeting extreme ideas quickly moves towards the censorship of more mainstream ones. In early March, the online retailer banned Muhammed’s Koran: Why Muslims Kill for Islam, a Chronological Koran and critique of the Islamic religion co-authored by British populist Tommy Robinson.
The book is a chronological reordering of the Islamic Koran, followed by commentary by Robinson and his co-author, Peter McLoughlin. Amazon did not return Breitbart News’ request for an explanation of why the book was banned.
In 2010, Amazon refused to take down a book defending pedophilia on first amendment grounds. “Amazon believes it is censorship not sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable,” an Amazon representative told CNBC at the time.
“Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions.”
Public and media outcry was not enough to pressure Amazon into watering down its commitment to content-neutrality when it came to a pro-pedophile book. But it now takes only the slightest pressure for the tech giant to ban right-wing critiques of religion.
And even before that, Amazon had watered down it’s commitment to “the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions.” In 2015, the site banned the sale of all merchandise depicting the Confederate flag.
Originally, Amazon had said that it would carry all books, no matter how controversial. However, now, Amazon, as well as other publishers, chalk it up to preventing hate-speech from reaching their readers, but as Breitbart even pointed out, Amazon carries some of the most destructive and hate-riddled books in human history including…
- Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf
- The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels
- Louis Farrakhan black nationalist, racist, and anti-semitic works
- Rules for Radicals, which promotes terror and violent Marxist uprising by Saul Alynski
- Countless other racist, anti-semitic, and hate-filled works
Therefore, America, like much of the whole of Europe now, has wholeheartedly embraced the Marxist based Fascism ideal of censorship through book burning and book banning! Now, we can only hope that the radical left can be stopped from burning either of the two most important documents in America…The United States Constitution, and the Bible itself!
