The ADL and the SPLC  have succeeded in pressuring Amazon to ban books on certain controversial historical matters.    http://www.unz.com/a...by-the-neocons/

 

Several outstanding works of black historiography were banned at the height of Black History Month, presumably because they provided a far more complex and nuanced view of the historical relations between blacks and Jews than the ADL and those in its orbit have long promoted.

 

One of the volumes published by Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam, which I had only discovered and read last year, seemed to conclusively demonstrate that the circumstances of the ADL’s own establishment a century ago were almost exactly contrary to what I had long believed based upon my standard history books.  

 

I’m only familiar with a small fraction of the banned books, but can highly recommend the following half dozen:

 
The Leo Frank Case: The Lynching of a Guilty Man, by Nation of Islam Research Group, which I had discussed last year at considerable length in American Pravda: The ADL in American Society.
 
The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Volume One, by the same organization, on the Jewish role in black American slavery.
 
The Culture of Critique, by Prof. Kevin MacDonald, on organized Jewish activist movements in America, originally published in 1998 by a leading academic press.
 
Breaking the Spell: The Holocaust, Myth & Reality, by Dr. Nicholas Kollerstrom, a British historian of science
 
The Hoax of the Twentieth Century, by Prof. Arthur Butz, the seminal text of Holocaust Denial
 
Stalin’s War of Extermination, by Dr. Joachim Hoffmann, a leading mainstream German military historian, presenting analysis that I had discussed last year in American Pravda: When Stalin Almost Conquered Europe.

These posts are MOST confusing. Can you explain what point you're trying to make about these books the author mentions.

It will be interesting to see if he answers your question.  I've asked him direct questions like yours at least a hundred times and he's not answered a single one. Maybe it's just me, maybe not...

 

By the way, thanks for asking one.

Still no answer to your question.  Is that making you wonder yet if this guy is real or not?

Amazon will sell you Mein Kampf and not Nation of Islam?  because?

 

New Zealand bookstore will sell you Mein Kampf but not Jordan Peterson?   

 

Amazon delegates it's book banning decisions to ADL and SPLC because?

 

We must all defer to their politicized, donor-financed decisions without question because?

 

 

(I will be posting more about the SPLC later)

Wow!

 

First time he's answered a question.  Might be a coincidence but since he's answered with a raft of rhetorical questions of his own, he or she might have a sense of humor (are you a he or she?), or evolution has just been proven true as some chimpanzee finally discovers the question-mark key.

 

So why are they selectively banning these books and what does New Zealand have to do with it?

Amazon ''sells'' books by Louis Farrakhan. They may not ''carry'' them ... meaning fulfill the order. This is true of nearly half of everythimg that is sold thru their site.

The titles available vary day to day depending on what the outside merchants offer through Amazon. I just checked and today I saw 4 or so of his books available. I have bought 3 of Farrakhan's books through Amazon.

Amazon is no longer a book store but a general market.

This statement says a lot about how/what you think. It indicates a level of anti-Semitism and antijewish paranoia.

I don't see anything anti-Semitic about the above quote.
