Amazon now bans books

Amazon used to carry all books, but not anymore:
The online retailer Amazon has stopped selling three Holocaust-denial books after Jewish groups voiced growing frustration that the website was giving a platform to antisemites.

Amazon has been criticised for years over the revisionist titles for sale on its website, but the recent upsurge in antisemitism across America promoted Robert Rozett, a senior official at Yad Vashem, to write to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos last month calling for immediate action.

On Wednesday morning, the three titles that Mr Rozett had complained about were unavailable for purchase. ...

The titles in question were: Holocaust: The Greatest Lie Ever Told, by Eleanor Wittakers; The Hoax of the Twentieth Century: The Case Against the Presumed Extermination of European Jewry, by Arthur R Butz and Did Six Million Really Die? by Richard Harwood.
Amazon has also banned The Bad War: The Truth NEVER Taught About World War II.

I assume that you will still be able to get public domain books like The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and Mein Kampf.

Maybe Bezos is a Nazi. I very much doubt that he thinks that these books are dangerous. Banning them just sends a message that Jews have the desire and the power to control what you learn and think.

Voltaire is credited (incorrectly) for saying: "To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize".
