Liberal elites are violating countless principles to stop Donald Trump from winning re-election.
The giants of Silicon Valley are particularly using a heavy thumb to tip the scales in Joe Biden’s favor.
Now big tech is blacklisting one movie in order to help Biden win.
Democrats still haven’t gotten over the defeat of Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Instead of recalibrating why the voters rejected their message, Democrats decided that the problem was free speech.
Tech moguls at Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, and other companies have marshaled their resources to tamp down conservative and Republican voices.
Even liberals who dare speak out against the left-wing orthodoxy feel the wrath of the tech censors.
For example, one prominent feminist was permanently banned from Twitter for simply tweeting, “Men aren’t women tho.”
Now Amazon is blocking a documentary called “What Killed Michael Brown?” from appearing on its platform.
The film was written and narrated by black conservative author Shelby Steele, and directed by his son Eli.
“What Killed Michael Brown?” takes a nuanced look at the factors that led to Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Missouri, and the subsequent rioting that only made the city worse.
Amazon Prime Video Direct, a platform that allows filmmakers to distribute their work independently, rejected “What Killed Michael Brown?” for an absurd reason.
The filmmakers emailed Prime Video Direct about their decision, and the company responded:
“Unfortunately, we have found that your title doesn’t meet Prime Video’s content quality expectations and is not eligible for publishing on the service at the time…We will not be accepting resubmission of this title and this decision may not be appealed…We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.”
This is a transparently partisan move.
The film is well-made from a technical standpoint, and Steele is a bestselling author and frequent contributor to the Wall Street Journal.
The idea that the film doesn’t reach some nebulous “quality expectations” is absurd.
Civil rights activist Bob Woodson, who appeared in the film, called out Amazon for their biased decision.
Amazon refused to stream Shelby Steele’s documentary, “What Killed Michael Brown?”, b/c they say it “doesn’t meet Prime Video’s content quality expectations”. Why not let Americans decide for themselves if the film has merit? https://t.co/X712tsa57E

The film is simply being censored because it goes against the leftist anti-police orthodoxy that has taken over the Democrat Party.
It’s no surprise that big tech is working to block any content damaging to Biden and the Democrats; they’ve been dumping money into the Biden campaign to help with his feeble online presence.
But censoring “What Killed Michael Brown?” for no good reason shows just how brazen the liberal elites of big tech have become.
Amazon has been particularly bad recently.
Not long ago, the site banned ads for the book “Irreversible Damage” by Wall Street Journal contributor Abigail Shrier because it was deemed “transphobic.”
The left-wing tech overlords have decided to commit to censorship for the “greater good.”
That is a truly terrifying thought.
