Amazon bans black history books

At least Amazon waited until Black History Month was over before banning four books by black authors about black history:
The banning of four Nation of Islam Black history books by Amazon, the largest bookseller in the world, provides a perfect opportunity to examine the wickedly racist ways Jewish power is wielded in America. Amazon provided no warning, no reason, no hearing, and no opportunity to respond—it was a blatant mockery of Amazon founder Jeffrey Bezos’s own creed, “Democracy Dies in Darkness.” It is, however, perfect proof of what The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad said: the mental resurrection of Black people will anger our oppressors and cause them to react punitively and viciously.
This is just another exhibit in the growing divide between the Democratic establishment and the grass roots of the party. This is why some Republicans are foolishly calling for what they describe as a Jexodus, which is insanely stupid if one considers what happened when the neocons were welcomed into the conservative movement.

“Democracy Dies in Darkness.”
Always seemed to me the meaning of this motto is open to interpretion. It doesn't suggest shining a light on anything. Isn't it maybe just suggesting a way to kill democracy?

Blogger Pseudotsuga March 18, 2019 2:02 PM  

An interesting turn of phrase you used here: books "about" black history, rather than books of black history. One wonders what algorithm Amazon used to decide these books were outside the pale of accepted history.

Well, you know, they are pro black only so long as blacks stay on the reservation.

I have to chuckle at it all.

Slightly OT: Vox, I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on a Kobo e-reader. However, I'm having trouble finding all your works like "SJWs Always Lie" in e-book format on Kobo's bookstore and at your websites like Castalia House. Is this going to change in the future?

Since I plan on ditching my Kindle e-reader, I won't have access to those books anymore (unless I use the app for smartphones and other devices, but even then I prefer my e-reader above all else for reading).

Blacks would be better served if they formed their own party and sold their votes to the highest bidder. They've tried that by explicitly hitching their wagon to the Democrats, with mixed results. They could at least use a third party and bids from the GOP to drive up the bid from the DNC. Their current leadership won't do it--they've made out very well as overseers on the DNC plantation-- but their average constituent not nearly so well. They're currently running an auction with only one bidder which doesn't even have to pay what it bids.

If the public schools the vast majority of black children attend only had more education on the Holocaust the NOI would not exist.

I wonder if these books were about how Yakub invented whites in a lab to be a race of devils, and how Charlemagne, Alexander, Caesar, Beethoven, Galileo, and so one were all black and whitey edited all their portraits. They might have banned them just so they wouldn't have to keep deleting the troll reviews.

Okay, you ask what might break evangelicals away from Israel? This. Because evangelicals are public school, which are integrated fully- and they live in the south- which is fully integrated majority black in some states- these are our neighbors, in ways that wealthy middle easterners are not.


If whites have been programmed to always choose the other to defend- well,blacks are other. All of the Hollywood Handbag adoptions that are so inexplicable, that happen in evangelical households: these foreigners are messing with our neighbors, our cousins, our children. To shame them, to threaten violence.


If he had a bridge- NOI to American Christianity- and then laid out the information- and asked for help, or something.


I mean, I'm shocked. I think I'm more appalled by this than anything else.

Did you see Minister Farrakhan giving props to Billy Graham? That's....huge. It makes me happy: he's being acknowledged as a prophet of God, a voice of God, instead of patronized.

Minister Farrakhan is a minister and defender and shepherd of his flock. This resonates. You have no idea.

My defense of Baptist ministers isn't that they are fun or trendy. It's that they minister to their flocks, no matter what. The 'no drinking, no sex before marriage.' It's not because it's fun or easy. It's because it protects their flock. Mr Farrakhan sounds the same to me. Different starting book, different flock, same good shepherding.

I find myself agreeing with Farrakhan a lot these days. Does that make me less racist, or more racist?

There has been a steady stream of "why are American Jews liberal?," or "why do American Jews vote Democrat?," out of Conservatism Inc. for decades. They never have what we would consider commonsense answers. But they are hungry for the patronage of American Jewry.

Unironically, part of what motivated neocons to jump ship back in the 60s was their fed-upedness with unruly coloreds. Who in a Dan Patrick Moynihany way they realized were not being properly manhandled. Well, that and the Six Day War, which put them in the mindset of protecting an established power instead of dismantling one from within.

Blogger tublecane March 18, 2019 5:40 PM  

@6- I can't imagine blacks being that mercenary. Especially considering the Republican Party is now the White Party instead of the Party of Lincoln.

Not that they have a plan, but their endgame I think is to take over the Democrat Party. Because they've got the most Diversity Pokemon Points, and once you go black you never go back.

No! Don't abandon your Kindle books. Move them off of your Kindle reader to your computer. Just drag the AZW3 file, or Kindle Content file (it could be either) to a folder on your computer. You don't need all the other files you'll see on the Kindle.

Then get the Calibre software and then download a DRM removal plug-in (Calibre DRM Removal Plugins ).

Then you can convert them to epub format and use them on your Kobo, using Calibre to manage it all. I got a Kobo several months ago did just that. Not complicated, unless you're an old Boomer, of course.

Everybody who has a Kindle should do this too. That way you'll have a back up of your books. Take control of your Kindle books. Don't be at the mercy of Amazon.

The books are part of a series called the secret relationship between blacks and jews. They highlight the leading role jews played in the slave trade.

Blogger Warunicorn March 18, 2019 8:23 PM  

Oh, I already knew about Calibre.

I'm certainly not giving up the books I already have. I could access them via the Kindle app if I wanted.

I don't understand these closed, DRM'd systems. I understand the pirating that happens but I hate when they make things difficult for the rest of us who genuinely buy books.

I also don't mind double-dipping every now and then if I had to as well, especially if there's a sale. I pretty much did anyway when I went from paper to digital.

Ottawa political operative threatens US conservative publisher with ‘fake news’ in The Globe and Mail

Justin Ling, an Ottawa-based political reporter whose work appears on some of Canada’s largest national platforms, threatened the publisher of The Chronicle in a revealing email exchange Sunday evening. He threatened to use his access to The Globe and Mail to intentionally report ‘fake news’. We are unable to discern whether the communication was an attempt at political intimidation or extortion.

Ling is a supporter of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and has reported widely on transgender issues. A picture of Trudeau adorns his Twitter profile. Scrolling his social media pages will quickly reveal unabashedly left-leaning political biases.

In the federal government’s budget — expected to be tabled on Tuesday — Trudeau is planning to include a nearly $600 million bailout of Canada’s major media giants, including many left-leaning publications that employ Ling as a freelance writer. Among them, Ling’s work appears in The Globe and Mail, The National Post, Macleans, and The Ottawa Citizen.

Then on Sunday evening, Ling initiated this email exchange, in which he threatens to intentionally misreport his communication with Ricchiazzi, and plans to do so in The Globe and Mail:

“Provides a perfect opportunity to examine...” The author admits the infringement and degradation of freedom provides perfect opportunity.

This makes absolutely no sense in any context. A reader of this propaganda comes to a similar conclusion as the author after the application of this liberal premise, wickedly racist ways are an unfortunate outcome of a perfect opportunity.
This constitutes a perfect opportunity to the author.
Furthermore, if there exists a perfect opportunity, what would constitute its perfection prior to the choice to engage in the choice provided?

@10:

"the Nation of Islam's take on history is so insane"

Not in this series of books. The Secret Relationship series is not some wild adventure into the world of Wakanda, grievance studies and black ethno-nationalism. It's a sober look at what the research literate says about slavery and slave ownership.

They deliberately restricted all of the citations to mainstream academic journal articles by Jewish researchers, avoiding black history scholars. The entire presentation of Jewish participation in the slave trade comes directly from the work of Jewish professors, writing in Jewish dominated academic journals. This is one of the reasons behind the desperate efforts to marginalize the series.

Jews were clearly in charge of banking, international trade, shipping and insurance in the various Muslim and 'European' empires.

My issue with the NoI stuff is that they don't like to talk about the Islamic slave empires. Yes, Jews were the main commercial actors, but the Muslim empires maintained vast quantities of slaves, both white and black.

Thinking further on the term, the Jews left Egypt to slaughter the inhabitants of Canaan and take over that land.

And yet HIS people (who hate their enemies) are alive and thriving (indeed, working diligently to continue their destruction of OUR people)! How much of your "oh, we must forgive them allllll!" is the churchianity, the inoffensive mildness of the domesticated, that has not slipped into modern Christianity, but been poured into its sleeping ear, a poison that would kill it as it slept?
