Is this the start of something new at Amazon?

In Amazon’s Bookstore, No Second Chances for the Third Reich
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/09/technology/amazon-bookstore-nazis.html
SAN FRANCISCO — Amazon is quietly canceling its Nazis.

Over the past 18 months, the retailer has removed two books by David Duke, a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan, as well as several titles by George Lincoln Rockwell, the founder of the American Nazi Party. Amazon has also prohibited volumes like “The Ruling Elite: The Zionist Seizure of World Power” and “A History of Central Banking and the Enslavement of Mankind.”

While few may lament the disappearance of these hate-filled books, the increasing number of banished titles has set off concern among some of the third-party booksellers who stock Amazon’s vast virtual shelves. Amazon, they said, seems to operate under vague or nonexistent rules.

...

Now Amazon is becoming increasingly proactive in removing Nazi material. It even allowed its own Nazi-themed show, “The Man in the High Castle,” to be cleaned up for a tribute book. The series, which began in 2015 and concluded in November, is set in a parallel United States where the Germans and the Japanese won World War II.


Not holding my breath, esp since Bezos recently hosted a lavish party where Barbie trump and Jared “25 books” Mideast Peace were invited

2. This isn't banning them.

Companies have a right to decide what or what not they will sell. No one is banning these “books”.
