Amazon now plastering Nazi symbolism across NYC while banning books that question the government


(NaturalNews) In recent days, Natural News readers have learned that the world's biggest online retailer, Amazon, is also one giant hypocrite.

As our editor, Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, reported in a Nov. 23 column, Amazon's executives decided it was appropriate to drop sales of a book they had previously approved because they didn't like it's politically incorrect conclusions.

The book, Nobody Died at Sandy Hook, written by several contributors and edited by Jim Fetzer, Ph.D., provides analysis and data suggesting that what happened there was not a mass murder, but a FEMA false-flag event staged to push an Obama Administration agenda of nationwide gun control.

"Whether the authors' conclusions are well-founded or complete lunacy isn't the point here. Amazon.com has selectively targeted this book for censorship due to the political incorrectness of the author's conclusions," Adams wrote. "Remember, Amazon.com went out of its way to ban Confederate flags in the aftermath of another shooting, enforcing a grotesque, almost Stalinist political correctness in its decision to pull Confederate flag merchandise from its online store (including children's toys like the General Lee car from Dukes of Hazzard)."

Adams noted that Amazon's actions essentially amounted to electronic book-burning, a theme I elaborated on here.

But when Amazon has a financial interest in supporting hate and intolerance, then that, of course, is a different story.

In case you were unaware, Amazon is also in the entertainment business, and recently the company rolled out its newest series, The Man in the High Castle – and its story line is ironic, to say the least.

"The SS train"

As described by Decider:

For the unfamiliar, the plot of Amazon's latest drama revolves around an alternate history version of world events, one in which the Axis powers triumphed over the Allied Forces in WWII. Set in the early 1950s, TMITHC—based on a famed novel by renowned sci-fi author Philip K. Dick— imagines a world in which America's East Coast has been commandeered by German forces, and the West Coast has been taken over by Imperial Japan.

It's bad enough that the Jeff Bezos-founded company is banning books it doesn't agree with, but it's over the top to produce a series which imagines an American loss in World War II (these Obama-era libs really do hate their country, don't they?).

To build on the success of the pilot episode, which admittedly was Amazon's top-rated pilot thus far, the company launched a multimillion-dollar ad campaign that included, among other things, Nazi-like paraphernalia and imagery.

In New York City, for instance, seating in entire sections of subway cars now bears that imagery, along with some depicting Imperial Japan's "half" of the country. And it's being noticed – and Amazon outed – on social media.

"42nd St shuttle to #TimesSquare covered in Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan symbols for @amazon ad. Is this ok?" one person tweeted.

"period underwear: too edgy for @MTA," tweeted another, Marisa Kabas, in reference to the Metropolitan Transit Authority's pulling of an ad featuring a female model in non-risque panties (here).

"an entire train of nazi imagery: totally chill with @MTA," Kabas added.

Others used humor to make their point about the offensive imagery.

"Is the subway really the fascist way to get around in New York City, anyway?" tweeted a user named Mike Byhoff.

Tone deaf

Mic.com had its own clever twist to the ad campaign, with this opening sentence to a story about it: "Amazon turned the S Train into the SS Train..."

Jewish leaders in NYC, which has the largest Jewish population in the world among cities outside Israel, are also upset with the inclusion of Nazi imagery, as you might imagine.

"Evan Bernstein, the Anti-Defamation League's New York regional director, told Gothamist that having the Nazi Reichsadler eagle in subway cars is 'viscerally offensive, because there is no context as to what it means ... This ad campaign has a feel of exploiting things that are so sensitive to so many people,'" Decider reported.

MTA officials said the ads do not violate the transportation service's requirement that materials be "content-neutral," but then they would say that, wouldn't they?

As for Amazon, the company's actions speak volumes about the CEO's lack of integrity and tone-deafness when it comes to certain sensibilities.
