We’re not sure how low former President Barack Obama’s deep state media machine will stoop.
President Obama has his talons hooked deep into the liberal mainstream media and in the federal government for sure. But, as it turns out, he’s grabbed hold of other industries in the private sector, including those owned by some of the biggest names in American media.
That’s why it wasn’t even surprising when one media platform actually censored a documentary that was about censorship!
We know the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC are members of former President Obama’s deep state shadow government. Of all the liberal “news” institutions, those are by far the most well-known.
Then you can sprinkle in lesser known but still large institutions like Slate, The Atlantic, The New Yorker, Huffington Post, etc.
They all play a big role in determining what Americans see, read, think about, and ultimately, believe.
But something many people have overlooked is how the owners of these “news” institutions have allowed their anti-Trump and anti-American rhetoric to bleed over into their other businesses.
For example, did you know Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos owns the extremely liberal and blatantly anti-Trump Washington Post?
So of course, the blatantly left-wing bias of the Post is going to bleed into Amazon.
And it just did.
It all stems from a new docuseries called “Killing Free Speech” about the threats of freedom of expression posed by Antifa and its allies in the media and Democrat Party.
Amazon actually censored a film about censorship.
In fact, the films creator, independent Danish-American filmmaker Michael Hansen, has had his work censored by Amazon multiple times already. Hansen’s previous documentary about mass migration and Islam in Europe was also censored by Amazon.
“Killing Free Speech” part one captures an official from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) admitting that women don’t have equal rights under Sharia law. The documentary also charts the rise of Antifa in the United States, highlighting how the movement has been influenced by violent militants in Europe.
Part two, which features an interview with a reporter about Big-Tech censorship, received praise from Terrence Shigg of the National Border Patrol Council who said, “’Killing Free Speech’ gave us a voice and an opportunity to speak the truth and it is a powerful testament to the men and women of the Border Patrol who risk their lives every day,”
Hansen said he was confused about Amazon censoring part two of the documentary over alleged “offensive content” because they did not specify what part of the documentary merited the “offensive” label.
After successfully holding a private screening for border patrol agents, Hansen attempted to arrange a private screening on Capitol Hill via the office of Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas, but was told that any such screening would surely be blocked by the Speaker’s office.
This isn’t the first time Amazon has done this and Hansen isn’t the only conservative filmmaker to be censored by the online retail giant.
The platform also removed Prime video links to Mike Cernovich’s documentary about media manipulation called “Hoaxed.”
They also briefly banned a book written by coronavirus skeptic science writer, Alex Berenson –and only reversed that decision due to overwhelming media pressure.
And it’s not the only book either:

Amazon, and by extension Bezos, wants to remain in the good graces of Obama’s Deep State and make sure they control what you watch, read and listen to.
Looks like they’re succeeding in both departments.
