Amazon deplatformed the social media site Parler supposedly for publishing violent content.
In its policy statement, the on-line mega vendor states, “Amazon does not allow products that promote, incite or glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual or religious intolerance or promote organizations with such views. We’ll also remove listings that graphically portray violence or victims of violence.”
But Amazon is far from consistent in how it applies its policy. A recent survey by the Media Research Center found 270 items for sale that “promote, incite or glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual or religious intolerance or promote organizations with such views.”
Here are a few celebrating Left-wing political violence.
In 2019, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) asked Amazon to take down bath mats that were imprinted with words from the Prophet Muhammed. Yet items that may be seen as blasphemous to Christians and Catholics are still up on the platform. The ones I’ve pictured are mild. One I looked at was so vile, I refuse to reproduce it here (though I did include the URL below).
