Michael Brown: Will Amazon Ban the Bible Next? – Christian Psychologist’s Books Banned— “When political leanings influence censorship decisions we move a step closer to burning books in the streets”

Ironically, 155 books (mostly scholarly) that completely refute the claims made by Michael Brown about WWII history in his July 5 video (minute-3) were banned by Amazon in 2017. Brown was silent. Now it’s too late.

Michael Brown: Site crossed a very dangerous line removing psychologist’s books

July 6, 2019

In a very disturbing move, Amazon has removed the books of Dr. Joseph Nicolosi, the psychologist whom critics have dubbed “the father of conversion therapy.” In other words, for claiming that sexual orientation is not innate and immutable, and for claiming that change is possible, Dr. Nicolosi’s books must be banned.

This leads to the logical question: Will Amazon ban the Bible next?Continue reading “Michael Brown: Will Amazon Ban the Bible Next? – Christian Psychologist’s Books Banned— “When political leanings influence censorship decisions we move a step closer to burning books in the streets””

Dr. Mercola’s passionate plea, transcribed by me!:

“Google worked for many years to earn your trust, but it was just setting a trap to twist that trust into powerful control. Google had the brilliant idea of utilizing crowdsourcing to provide you with the best answers to your questions, pushing the most frequently selected content to the top of search results. …

Crowdsourcing has become crowd control. Google began giving you everything you want so it can now take everything you have. … Google has become the ultimate puppet master, infecting people and manipulating them without them even knowing it. The true goal is to be in complete control of us, directing our behavior. …

On June 3 of this year, Google predictively removed my website and several other health sites from their search results. …

Above all else, please, please stop using Google! … Don’t use other Google products like the Chrome browser. … Use…the one I use, which is Brave, based on the software Chromium, so it’s easy to import all of your favorite bookmarks….

Trump administration preparing charges against media companies that discriminate against conservatives

Justice to convene meeting on whether social media companies are ‘intentionally stifling’ free speech

09/05/18

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has scheduled a meeting with state attorneys general in September to discuss a “growing concern” that tech companies may be “intentionally stifling” the free flow of ideas on their platforms.

In a statement issued right after executives from Facebook and Twitter finished testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee, the Department of Justice (DOJ) also suggested that the platforms were running afoul of antitrust laws.

“The Attorney General has convened a meeting with a number of state attorneys general this month to discuss a growing concern that these companies may be hurting competition and intentionally stifling the free exchange of ideas on their platforms,” DOJ spokesman Devin O’Malley said in a statement issued near the end of the congressional hearing.

President Trump and conservative House Republicans have repeatedly aired complaints about bias against conservatives on Facebook, Twitter, Google and other social media platforms.

Skousen: Is It Illegal to Censor Alex Jones?

THE PUBLIC/PRIVATE WAR AGAINST FREE SPEECH

Alex Jones is the most prominent conservative fighting a battle against censorship and financial revenue as the major internet media platforms ban his content and refuse to pay him for his popular content. The Powers That Be (PTB) are working every angle to bankrupt Alex. It started months ago when YouTube denied him his advertizing revenue from the millions of viewers who watched his video commentaries. Then an establishment legal firm conjured up a lawsuit against Jones on behalf of several Sandy Hook families complaining they have been threatened and harassed by Jones supporters. This week it mushroomed to an outright censorship ban on Facebook, Youtube, the Apple Store, Spotify and others after CNN orchestrated a pressure campaign against him and targeted all the major social media tech giants. Supposedly, Alex is guilty of “hate speech,” one of those nebulous and political correct epithets that can be skewed to cover almost any criticism of anyone else. The claim of hate speech itself, if left to stand, is a major attack on the principle of free speech. This week I’ll discuss the backlash in support of Jones, and the issue of whether these are strictly private companies are, in fact, really public/private partnerships akin to public utilities that should not be able to suppress free speech.

Is It Illegal to Censor Jones? This is bound to become more of an issue as this attack on free speech continues and expands against other conservative, conspiratorial voices. The first question is “Are these companies truly private?” If yes, then they can do whatever they want on their social media platform. Or can they?

According to the reigning legal argument in civil rights and anti-discrimination circles, once you (as a private person or private company) open your business to the public, you are no longer private as to your ability to discriminate. I oppose this expansive view against the privacy of property, but as long as it is accepted by the Left, it can and should be used against them.

These social media companies are clearly inviting all the public to participate and thus are not free to discriminate. That is perhaps why they are justifying this in the name of “hate speech,” as if that gives them a legitimate test of criminality that allows for discrimination. As I and others have pointed out, you can’t make hatred illegal any more than you can any form of negative opinion against another is illegal. In fact, if there was ever was an outpouring of hatred here, it is against Alex Jones and his points of view.

You can outlaw incitement to violence, and it appears they are trying to equate hate speech to violence, as if they are always synonymous, but they are not. Only when someone is yelling hateful speech and directly inciting violence is this true, but the Left is trying to expand the view of hate speech backward to any negative criticism of someone. Point of fact: there is no way to draw the line except at the most violent prone end of the incitement spectrum. Everything less than that has to be protected speech or Free Speech is gone.

China demolishes hundreds of churches and confiscates Bibles during a crackdown on Christianity
7 August 2018

  • Locals in Henan stated concerns of a move by the atheist ruling Community Party to control Christianity
  • Residents were asked to replace posters of the cross and Jesus Christ with portraits of President Xi Jinping
  • Experts say the government is waging the most severe systematic suppression of the religion since 1982
  • Chinese leaders have ‘always been suspicious of the political threat’ that Christianity poses to the regime

‘Chinese leaders have always been suspicious of the political challenge or threat that Christianity poses to the Communist regime,’ said Xi Lian, a scholar of Christianity in China at Duke University. ‘Under Xi, this fear of Western infiltration has intensified and gained a prominence that we haven’t seen for a long time.’

Officials once largely tolerated the unregistered Protestant house churches that sprang up independent of the official Christian Council, clamping down on some while allowing others to grow. But this year they have taken a tougher approach that relies partly on ‘thought reform’ – a phrase for political indoctrination.

Last November, Christian residents of a rural township in south-east Jiangxi province were persuaded to replace posters of the cross and Jesus Christ inside their homes with portraits of Xi, a local official said.

‘Through our thought reform, they’ve voluntarily done it,’ Qi Yan, a member of the township party committee, told the AP by phone. ‘The move is aimed at Christian families in poverty, and we educated them to believe in science and not in superstition, making them believe in the party.’  …

‘Xi is a closet Maoist – he is very anxious about thought control,’ said Willy Lam, a Chinese politics expert at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. ‘He definitely does not want people to be faithful members of the church, because then people would profess their allegiance to the church rather than to the party, or more exactly, to Xi himself.’

Various state and local officials declined repeated requests to comment. But in 2016, Xi explicitly warned against the perceived foreign threats tied to faith, telling a religion conference: ‘We must resolutely guard against overseas infiltrations via religious means.’
