Biden Admin and Amazon Censored Certain Vaccine Books

Documents reveal the extensive "do not promote" list the Biden admin provided to Amazon to suppress critical vaccine literature.

In a disturbing revelation, it has come to light that the Biden Administration exerted pressure on Amazon to obscure books critical of vaccines during the pandemic. The House Judiciary Committee and the Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government have uncovered documents indicating that Amazon was nudged to diminish the visibility of titles critical of the pharmaceutical industry’s COVID-19 vaccines.

These documents reveal a chilling “Do Not Promote” list curated by the federal government, featuring over 40 titles, some authored by medical professionals and others reviewing scientific studies. This list wasn’t just limited to scholarly critiques; it even included a children’s book that was perceived as too sympathetic to the unvaccinated.

In a series of revealing X posts, Judiciary Committee Chair Rep. Jim Jordan highlighted internal Amazon communications showing that these actions were taken in response to criticism from the Biden Administration. This wasn’t just about controlling misinformation on social media, as the administration might claim, but a broader assault on dissenting views. They were targeting books, a traditional bastion of free speech and debate.

Biden and Amazon’s Censorship Set a Disturbing Precedent

The irony here is thick with hypocrisy. The Biden Administration has vocally accused Republicans of attempting to “ban” books across the nation. Yet, while figures like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis have been criticized for opposing the presence of sexually explicit materials in school libraries—materials aimed at children—the Biden Administration has been quietly working to suppress a wide range of adult literature that dared to question its pandemic policies.

This act of censorship is not only a betrayal of the trust placed in government to uphold the principles of freedom and open discourse but also a dangerous precedent. When a government starts deciding which books can be seen and which cannot, based on its own interests, it strays perilously close to the authoritarian regimes it claims to oppose.

The revelation that the administration has been involved in such actions should serve as a wake-up call to all Americans about the silent erosion of our fundamental rights under the guise of protecting public health. The question we must all ask ourselves is: What comes next in this campaign of silencing dissent? Where does it end? It’s a slippery slope from hiding books on Amazon to broader forms of censorship that could affect every facet of our public and private discourse.
