Amazon has removed 250 reviews from the book The Worst President in History: The Legacy of Barack Obama, authored by PJ Media reporter Matt Margolis. Margolis also wrote the foreword for my newly released book, Enemies: The Press vs. The American People.
What: Margolis wrote about the purge of the reviews on PJ Media, and said that not only were the reviews gone, but the book, which previously had a 4.5/5 star rating, dropped to 4.2/5 after the purge. He also described nearly 25 percent of the reviews of his book as “bogus” one-star reviews, attributing them left-wingers who never read the book, but simply targeted him because his book is anti-Obama.
“I hope this turns out to be a mistake on [Amazon’s] end, but losing that many reviews overnight feels intentional and targeted,” Margolis told The Rundown.
Why It Matters: Amazon has been on the slippery slope of censorship for some time. It banned British free-speech activist Tommy Robinson’s book “Mohammed’s Quran,” which it deemed “inappropriate.” Critics of the book called it “Islamophobic,” a made up word used as a pejorative to silence anyone who criticizes radical Islam for its violence.
Meanwhile, Hitler’s Mein Kampf is still available for purchase on the site.
Amazon is part of the Silicon Valley Big Tech machine, which has been working to silence conservatives for years, and has made itself the target of a Department of Justice anti-trust investigation.
