Amazon cancels Clarence Thomas

Book burners gota burn.


For reasons it has not yet disclosed, Amazon pulled a documentary about conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas…during Black History Month. 


The film, “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words,” was removed from the streaming service, which had previously been available since October. 

The movie’s director, Michael Pack, told The Wall Street Journal no explanation was ever given, despite repeated requests for information. 

“Our distributor, who’s the one who made the deal with Amazon, has repeatedly asked them for explanations but they haven’t given any,” Pack told the Journal. “They have the right to pull anything from their site, and they don’t have to give an explanation. So it’s not a contract violation. But many people have complained, and they haven’t put it back up.”

The director said the documentary, which takes viewers on a journey through Thomas’ “complex and often painful life, dealing with race, faith, power, jurisprudence, and personal resilience,” according to the film’s description on PBS, was performing well and other less-popular documentaries are still available. 

Considering Thomas to be “the most important African-American leader in America today,” Pack said the move was especially concerning during Black History Month, when the achievements of black Americans, both liberal and conservative, ought to be celebrated.

Unfortunately, this is becoming a pattern for Amazon.

So tell me Dr. Ron

Can you point to a period in history where the good guys censor speech and burn books?


Re: So tell me Dr. Ron

what happened to Clarence Thomas should never have happened to any person, and those that post here and still have not been contrite or apologized can go F themselves, along with the horse they ride or live with.

When you look at the end of MLK's life, how he spent his last night alive philandering with two women that were not his wife, and then assaulted the woman that thought she was his surrogate "second wife" and then got a national holiday, and compare that to a lifetime of service from Clarence Thomas, you just wonder at the vile and hatred for things decent that resides in the souls of the leftist liberals.
