Amazon Blocks Ad for New Book Investigating BLM Leaders


In the latest example of Big Tech censorship, Amazon blocked an advertisement for a new book investigating the leaders of Black Lives Matter, claiming content that involves “controversial or highly debated social topics is not permitted.”

“BLM: The Making of a New Marxist Revolution” by Mike Gonzalez seeks to answer questions about the Black Lives Matter organization and movement.

“I wrote this book because most of the press refused to cover the important questions about the people and organizations behind Black Lives Matter,” Gonzalez said in a statement. “Now Amazon is trying to limit how many Americans read this book.”

As reported by the Daily Signal, the Heritage Foundation attempted to buy the ad for the book. On Tuesday, Amazon said that the ad “no longer complies with our current Creative Acceptance Policies.”

However, Amazon reversed its action Thursday, saying their “policies were inaccurately enforced, and the book is now being advertised.”

“We are providing training to ensure our teams are clear on our policies,” Amazon said.
