Trump – Biden – Pelosi – Kamala – Impeachment – Economy – Stock Market Show Comments 15 Comments Russ on March 1, 2021 no Sherman on March 1, 2021 GOOD and Direct Answer and To Silence Speech Good or bad is no speech at all. WHO determines What Is Hate are Not ? TRUTH is NOT HATE,or is “IT” ? When Then is a “LIE ” is considered Truth. ??? THE END RESULT,S is Whom and what side of the fence your on.and Like let the fence be removed,FREE SPEECH good are bad and ALL HUMAN DOGS WILL FIGHT ARE KILL ONE ANOTHER! Every TIME. Cliff on March 1, 2021 BTW, WHO “decides ” what is or is NOT “hate speech? If this is allowed , this will be the beginning of the “slippery slope” and reminds me of the NAZIS (and other dictatorships), that eventually ordered the burning of ALL books. Actually with the communists FRAUDULENTLY “elected” in 2021, and shoved down our throats, I expected this to happen sooner. The communists are now emboldened by the allowance of their FRAUD “election” to be ignored, so if this is not stopped immediately, expect more of the same “actions” until the PEOPLE retaliate and drive the scum OUT of power. Briben biden on March 1, 2021 exactly. further who are the 11% who think it is a good idea. What a stupid population we have. If you don’t like a book don’t read it. ok that 11% of you who think someone else should decide everything. I have decided for you that you are all slaves now. your all coming over to work on my farm for me. you have to sleep outside because I decided that. I will give you blankets and you just put up with the 18 degree weather. would someone please explain how Americans got so dumb so fast? Allen on March 1, 2021 To hell with Amazon. And, I will bet this does not get posted. Cyn on March 1, 2021 May as well be Nazi Germany burning books, denying free speech and curtailing people’s lives. No, No one has the right to dictate what another reads. None of these people or politicians is God! Cason on March 1, 2021 If there is something in print, on tv, in movies, online,etc., that offends me, I do not read or look at it. I make my own decisions what I veiw. No one has to police it for me. “Censorship” is the responsibility of each person individually. Everyone can censor their choices so no need for big tech, coorporations or politicians to do it for us. We do not need caretakers to look after us. I’ve made it 60 years without big tech, business, politicians managing my choices, I think I can manage just fine. R Walker on March 1, 2021 They have the right to not sell whatever they want to. I am sure there are many “sellers” that they want let on their platform. If you do not like their policy go buy stuff elsewhere or start your own “Amazon”. If businesses have to right not to sell to certain groups or sell their products, then Amazon has the same right. Many “religious” groups want books they don’t like banned or burned. So can’t Amazon do the same? Janice on March 1, 2021 I have banned every thing Amazon. No more shopping there for anything. If they can ban us, we can ban them. Go for it. Stop shopping with them, and watch them go under. Would love it. Claxson 68 on March 1, 2021 Boycott Amazon! Wallace on March 1, 2021 NO this is America damn it ! The suggestion of a ban on Any speech is insane. rm on March 1, 2021 Amazon and its owner need to be sued into oblivion…Stop the “cancel culture” with lawsuits. Richard on March 1, 2021 As others have said, banning books for their content is a communist tactic. The left, which includes Amazon, Facebook and Google will ban most Conservatives points of view while allowing vile hate speech from the CCP , the Ayatollahs in Iran and others. The American people should ban those three companies because of their contempt of the people that don’t agree with their Marxist views. marcia on March 1, 2021 Like Cliff said, who gets to decide what’s hate speech and what’s not? Don’t let Bezos or Zuckerberg decide, whatever you do! This is still a free country with freedom of speech and people can make up their own minds- what people need to do is become critical thinkers and think of consequences of actions before they jump on any band wagon. We need to cancel the “cancel culture”. Norman Hinderliter on March 2, 2021 If, by “hate speech”, you mean Racism, then the “Roots” series would be the first to start with. This series is so ANTI-White that I LOST many friends, just due to the Racist content of the series. Yes, neighbors, whom I had known, for years, were, suddenly, “enemies”, due to Roots. Also is the fact that Mr. Hailey never bothered to mention WHITE slavery. ONLY Negro slavery. In my opinion, such open Racism should be considered “hate speech”. If you cover a topic, cover ALL sides, NOT just one angle. Anything less should be considered “hate speech”. Comments are closed.
