Not Historic? Amazon Dumps Clarence Thomas Movie for Black Historical past Month


Many individuals dwelling on this present century – particularly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and the stay-at-home orders that resulted – have shopped on-line at Amazon. They’ve turn out to be monumental.

The corporate can be very progressive – having posted company grandstanding for Black Lives Matter on social media on account of the dying of George Floyd. The posts had Amazon present their true colours, they usually additionally present the corporate’s hypocrisy. They lately determined to remove a PBS documentary about Clarence Thomas, the black conservative serving on the U.S. Supreme Courtroom since being appointed by president George H.W. Bush in 1991 – simply in time for Black Historical past Month. In keeping with Breitbart:

Justice Thomas’s unbelievable story is one which each American ought to know – and particularly, each black American.  He was born in 1948 in deep poverty within the Deep South of segregated Georgia, dwelling from beginning below Jim Crow legal guidelines. His dad and mom had virtually no training, and his father left the household earlier than he was two. Thomas’s life modified when he was 7 years outdated, when he and his youthful brother went to dwell along with his grandparents.

Amazon Prime is providing 4 movies (two docudramas and two documentaries) on Supreme Courtroom Justice Thurgood Marshall, a liberal icon and our nation’s first black Supreme Courtroom justice.  There are even two movies (one docudrama and one documentary) on Anita Hill, who made unproven allegations of sexual harassment in opposition to Thomas in an try to doom his affirmation.

So, apparently the one black lives that matter to Amazon are the lives of progressives. And the truth that they wouldn’t even present a documentary a few black Supreme Courtroom justice simply because he’s a conservative proves the corporate to be nothing however hypocrites and liars.

Right here’s some proof. In November of final 12 months, NewsBusters author Lindsay Kornick wrote about an Amazon-produced anthology sequence finished alongside the BBC known as Small Axe, direced by infamous race-baiter Steve McQueen (who additionally directed 12 Years a Slave). It’s alleged to be a historic sequence, however is nothing however propaganda that creates race issues that don’t exist Kornick concluded her overview of the sequence with this:

If the sequence creator himself believes 1970 London is similar to America in the present day, it’s no stretch to see opinions make the identical connection.

There are nonetheless 4 extra movies left within the Small Axe sequence which most likely means 4 extra weeks of individuals making “well timed” connections, as if the present BLM motion hasn’t dragged on lengthy sufficient for viewers.

I couldn’t have mentioned it higher myself. As an organization, Amazon has the suitable to do no matter it desires. However  when their Black Lives Matter activism proves them to be hypocrites and liars (to paraphrase North Carolina’s first black Lieutenant Governor, Mark Robinson) that ought to have individuals involved. There is no such thing as a excuse for pretending Clarence Thomas just isn’t a historic determine throughout Black Historical past Month. 

Amazon has confirmed themselves to be a very partisan company. Its founder, Jeff Bezos, has proven his left-wing colours as properly, particularly as a consequence of the truth that his newspaper – The Washington Publish – has turn out to be crammed with nothing however leftist madness ever since he purchased the paper from the Graham family.

The entire and complete alienation of conservatives from the tech and leisure industries is uncontrolled.
