Never-before-released internal emails subpoenaed by @JudiciaryGOP reveal that the Biden White House pressured Amazon to censor books that expressed views the White House did not approve of.

I looked at the email images in the thread, and it seems like this particular episode was focused on vaccines. Given what we know of human nature, political power, and the progressive reluctance to censor everything they don’t like under the rationale of “fighting misinformation,” I think we can rest assured that it certainly stopped there, and our sagacious progressive friends who patronizingly lectured us on how it was just “market forces” at work when the books of authors ranging from Ryan T. Anderson to Dr. Seuss were barred from being sold on Amazon and eBay were correct as usual. Besides, if these books were truly being censored, wouldn’t we see them on display tables at the front of libraries and bookstores everywhere? I rest my case.
