Many individuals dwelling on this present century – particularly in the course of the COVID-19 pandemic and the stay-at-home orders that resulted – have shopped on-line at Amazon. They’ve grow to be huge.
The corporate can also be very progressive – having posted company grandstanding for Black Lives Matter on social media because of the loss of life of George Floyd. The posts had Amazon present their true colours, they usually additionally present the corporate’s hypocrisy. They just lately determined to remove a PBS documentary about Clarence Thomas, the black conservative serving on the U.S. Supreme Courtroom since being appointed by president George H.W. Bush in 1991 – simply in time for Black Historical past Month. In accordance with Breitbart:
Justice Thomas’s unbelievable story is one which each American ought to know – and particularly, each black American. He was born in 1948 in deep poverty within the Deep South of segregated Georgia, dwelling from delivery below Jim Crow legal guidelines. His mother and father had nearly no schooling, and his father left the household earlier than he was two. Thomas’s life modified when he was 7 years previous, when he and his youthful brother went to reside along with his grandparents.
Amazon Prime is providing 4 movies (two docudramas and two documentaries) on Supreme Courtroom Justice Thurgood Marshall, a liberal icon and our nation’s first black Supreme Courtroom justice. There are even two movies (one docudrama and one documentary) on Anita Hill, who made unproven allegations of sexual harassment towards Thomas in an try and doom his affirmation.
So, apparently the one black lives that matter to Amazon are the lives of progressives. And the truth that they wouldn’t even present a documentary a couple of black Supreme Courtroom justice simply because he’s a conservative proves the corporate to be nothing however hypocrites and liars.
Right here’s some proof. In November of final 12 months, NewsBusters author Lindsay Kornick wrote about an Amazon-produced anthology collection carried out alongside the BBC referred to as Small Axe, direced by infamous race-baiter Steve McQueen (who additionally directed 12 Years a Slave). It’s speculated to be a historic collection, however is nothing however propaganda that creates race issues that don’t exist Kornick concluded her evaluation of the collection with this:
If the collection creator himself believes 1970 London is similar to America at present, it’s no stretch to see critiques make the identical connection.
There are nonetheless 4 extra movies left within the Small Axe collection which most likely means 4 extra weeks of individuals making “well timed” connections, as if the present BLM motion hasn’t dragged on lengthy sufficient for viewers.
I couldn’t have mentioned it higher myself. As an organization, Amazon has the appropriate to do no matter it desires. However when their Black Lives Matter activism proves them to be hypocrites and liars (to paraphrase North Carolina’s first black Lieutenant Governor, Mark Robinson) that ought to have folks involved. There isn’t a excuse for pretending Clarence Thomas just isn’t a historic determine throughout Black Historical past Month.
Amazon has confirmed themselves to be a very partisan company. Its founder, Jeff Bezos, has proven his left-wing colours as nicely, particularly resulting from the truth that his newspaper – The Washington Submit – has grow to be stuffed with nothing however leftist madness ever since he purchased the paper from the Graham family.
The entire and complete alienation of conservatives from the tech and leisure industries is uncontrolled.
