Elon Musk Urges to Break up Amazon Over Censorship of COVID-19 Book

Alex Berenson, ex-New York Times reporter, recently tweeted that Amazon was actively censoring and refusing to publish his latest book. Unpublished Truths About COVID-19 and Lockdowns is based on scientific evidence and published government data. Berenson went on to say that the book was not trying to diminish the severity of the novel coronavirus or its death toll.

That did not mean much to Amazon. They have still decided to censor his book, even after being told the true story behind it. Alex was sure to point out the hypocrisy that is taking place at Amazon at the moment, too. They were willing to censor him but they are also willing to sell a number of books that seem to go against the rules that they made to punish Alex.

The Unabomber Manifesto and the Anarchist Cookbook are still readily available and we are wondering when these books are going to be removed. Since Amazon is claiming to care so much about the information that they are presenting, these books should probably get taken down as well. It’s not about the information, though, it’s about adhering to a certain media narrative.

The company is also responsible for publishing books that offer positive information about pedophilia. Meanwhile, this man’s well researched book is being kept from the person. The company was not even willing to disclose the guidelines, so that Alex could make changes as needed. It seems like they are simply trying to shut down anything that goes against their predetermined narratives.

Amazon has made massive gains during the lockdown, as more and more people are forced to turn to online services as a means of getting their hands on crucial items. Instead of allowing information to spread, they are flexing their muscles and doing everything in their power to put a stop to helpful booklets like this one.

We could understand if Alex was perpetrating harmful narratives. Amazon is merely looking to expand their share of the United States book market and they do not care what strong arm tactics are needed to reach that goal. Elon Musk decided that he needed to weigh in on this argument and anyone who knows where he lands on these things will not be surprised.

He tweeted Jeff Bezos and let him know that is time to break up the company. He believes that this an assault on free speech and we are inclined to agree with him. There’s no reason for Amazon to be making these types of decisions. Leftist tech giants like these are working overtime to remove free speech from American life and we hope that someone is able to put a stop to it.

Who wants to live in a world where Amazon is able to decide what we can and cannot say? This is not an America that anyone should want to live in. We are happy to report that Amazon came to their senses eventually. Who knows what forced them to change their mind? Maybe it was Musk, maybe it was the prospect of widespread media backlash to their awful decision.

Either way, we love to see it. Social media is more useful than most people realize. Way back when, a company had the ability to make terrible choices and shield themselves from public criticism. Nowadays, the calculus is much different. As soon as a company like Amazon steps in it, they are forced to offer up a response that meets the needs of the people who are bothered.

Let’s all keep fighting the good fight against these companies, so that they cannot take away our right to free speech. It’s a never ending battle but we are ready for it. Having a comrade like Elon Musk during a time like this means the world to us. We hope that more prominent folks like him are ready to speak up about the injustices that authors like Alex are facing.
