Why BURN books when you can just prevent people from seeing them in the first place?
Somebody needs to explain that dystopian novels like “1984”, “Brave New World”, or in this case, “Fahrenheit 451” were supposed to serve as WARNINGS, not templates to be followed.
Bradbury warned that someday teams of ‘firemen’ would sweep through private homes, burning contraband books.
Never could he have dreamed of today’s digital world where one or two well-positioned Corporate Monsters could single-handedly erase and quash politically incorrect “wrong think”.
As if being thrown in solitary as punishment for reporting the news about rapists that the networks refused to cover were not enough:
CAIR, who successfully pressured Amazon to pull doormats featuring verses from the Koran, doesn’t even need to crack the whip anymore, the censors are so used to their step-and-fetch relationship that they now police any ‘insensitive’ material themselves.
It’s the British government and the BBC, rather than CAIR, that are likely behind this, but Amazon has just dropped the book Mohammed’s Koran by the renowned British activist Tommy Robinson and Peter McLoughlin — and apparently only because its censors dislike Robinson. In the last two weeks, Robinson spectacularly embarrassed the BBC by exposing the bias and dishonesty of its reporter John Sweeney. The retaliation has been swift and severe: Robinson has been banned from YouTube and Facebook, and now his book has been withdrawn from sale.
Coauthor Peter McLoughlin states:
This is the twenty-first century equivalent of the Nazis taking out the books from university libraries and burning them. Can you think of another scholarly book on Islam that has been banned by Amazon? Mein Kampf is for sale on Amazon. As are books like the terrorist manual called The Anarchist Cookbook.
They refuse to reinstate the book and refuse to explain why it has been banned. So they have banned the No.1 best-selling exegesis of the Koran. I can’t get my head round it. Every few weeks for the past 18 months they had emailed me asking to put it into special sales programmes, as it was selling so well. For 18 months they sought to profit even more from the sales.
“As dark as my vision is,” McLoughlin concludes, “I thought we were 10 to 20 years away from dissenting books from being banned.”
Ten to Twenty years? Guess again. There will be no waiting.
Buckle up patriots, this fight is just beginning.
