Censorship has become a part and parcel of Joe Biden’s political operation.
The White House is trying to squash any dissent.
And Jim Jordan blew the whistle on this spine-chilling scheme to silence conservatives.
Jim Jordan (R-OH) exposed another disturbing instance of censorship by the White House under President Joe Biden.
He released a series of emails on social media that he dubbed the “The Amazon Files,” which were uncovered by subpoenas from the House Judiciary Committee and its Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.
White House officials emailed Amazon between March 2 and March 12, 2021, and pressured them about censoring books that were skeptical of the vaccine.
Those exchanges resulted in an in-person sit-down between Amazon and the officials on March 9, 2021.
Amazon agreed to limit the reach of books that were labeled anti-vaccine on the platform after the pressure campaign.
“Who can we talk to about the high levels of propaganda and misinformation and disinformation [on] Amazon?” former White House Senior Advisor for the COVID response, Andy Slavitt, emailed Amazon on March 2, 2021.
Slavitt complained that searching for “vaccines” on Amazon turned up “concerning” results in another email he sent to the company.
He followed up with another email telling Amazon that there were books for sale that didn’t include a “warning” from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
An Amazon employee wondered in an internal company email whether the Biden White House wanted them to ban offensive books or simply restrict their visibility on searches.
“Is the [Biden] Admin asking us to remove books, or are they more concerned about search results/order (or both)?” the Amazon employee asked a coworker.
According to a March 2 email, Amazon initially didn’t take action on the White House recommendation because the company was worried about potential public backlash.
A March 12 email revealed that the company was “feeling pressure from the White House.”
As a result of White House pressure, Amazon folded and reduced the visibility of the books in searches.
Amazon began “enabl[ing] Do Not Promote for anti-vax books whose primary purpose is to persuade readers vaccines are unsafe or ineffective on 3/9, and will review additional handling options for these books with you,” a March 12 email stated.
This is the latest revelation that the Biden regime worked with Big Tech to silence pandemic content.
YouTube and Facebook were contacted about censorship information on the pandemic that ran counter to the narrative promoted by Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Since the Biden regime can’t win the argument, they’ve resorted to trying to silence their political opposition.
