Elizabeth Warren may have lost her bid for the White House but she’s still on the warpath.
The Karen-in-Chief is out to muzzle anything she doesn’t like.
But she’s in hot water after this censorship scheme just backfired.
Elizabeth Warren is a nagging, control freak who wants Big Government to run your life.
The pandemic was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Warren and her authoritarian ilk to push for massive government power grabs over Americans.
They all clearly took it seriously.
And Americans are still enduring the insane crackdowns on so-called “misinformation” at the hands of government authoritarians and Big Tech.
But Elizabeth Warren’s jihad against one book pushing back on the COVID narrative is a unique case.
The Truth About COVID-19: Exposing The Great Reset, Lockdowns, Vaccine Passports, and the New Normal is a bestselling book by Dr. Joseph Mercola and Ronnie Cummins.
The book counters the Fauci narrative on the pandemic by presenting evidence that the virus came from a lab leak in Wuhan and the totalitarian power grab by governments in the name of “public health.”
Pushing back against the narrative on COVID can’t be tolerated.
And since it’s offered for sale on the world’s biggest bookseller, Amazon, Elizabeth Warren thought it a no-brainer to whip up a letter to pressure Amazon CEO Andrew Jassy to do something about the book for “peddling misinformation.”
That’s right, Elizebeth Warren used her official position as a Senator to effectively demand book banning.
Her letter demanded that Amazon take action with its search and “Best Seller” algorithms to hide the bestselling book.
She said the book was, “perpetuating dangerous conspiracies about COVID-19 and false and misleading information about vaccines.”
Warren decried Amazon’s practices, “to prevent the spread of falsehoods or the sale of inappropriate products” as “unethical, unacceptable, and potentially unlawful course of action.”
The book’s publisher, Chelsea Green Publishing, is taking Warren to court for this attack on the 1st amendment from a government official.
The suit alleges that Barnes and Noble dropped the book (but later reinstated it) and Amazon manipulated its search results against it.
They cite the Supreme Court case of Bantam Books v. Sullivan as precedent which found that government officials violated the 1st amendment by “sending letters to booksellers warning the sale of certain books was potentially unlawful.”
The ruling found that it’s unconstitutional for the government to pressure private companies to censor on behalf of the government.
Chelsea Green’s attorney, Nathan Arnold, said that he didn’t believe the book was “misinformation” but the charge is irrelevant since the speech is protected under the 1st amendment.
This is the latest collusion between Big Tech and the government to target pandemic speech they don’t like.
Biden Surgeon General Vivek Murthy demanded that podcaster Joe Rogan be censored for COVID “misinformation” by Big Tech.
It remains to be seen whether the lawsuit succeeds but Big Government and Big Tech working hand-in-hand is likely here to stay under the Biden regime.
