CensorTrack with TR: Amazon Censors Best Selling, Innocent Kids Book

May 4th, 2022 12:30 PM

It’s Episode 36 of CensorTrack with TR. This week we talked about Amazon employee and customer temper tantrums that led to the censorship of two books — one about child self-acceptance and the other about biology. 

Conservative commentator, writer, and speaker Matt Walsh, authored a book called “Johnny the Walrus.” The story details the life of a young boy who likes to play pretend. One day, Johnny pretends to be a walrus, and his mom, with the influence of the woke social media crowd, really believes her son is a walrus. She then facilitates changes and procedures to transition Johnny into a walrus. The story is intended to serve as a comparison to transgendering kids, and encourages children to love who God made them to be. 

Per usual for the leftists, an outrage erupted among Amazon employees and customers. During a leadership session posted by Libs of TikTok, employees were apparently traumatized and shed actual tears over a cardboard book. One customer even made up a crazy fallacy, and said the book encouraged bullying and suicide for transgender kids — none of which was actually mentioned in the book. 

“Johnny the Walrus” was No. 1 on Amazon in the LGBTQ category until Amazon stripped that category title from it and deemed it political commentary. Amazon also declassified it as a children's book and removed ads for it. Walsh said in a tweet that Amazon also removed ads for his other book What is A Woman? It’s 2022, and apparently the definition of a woman is up for debate. 

While those books remain censored, Amazon sponsors a book called You-Ology that “promote[s] puberty blockers,” female erections and chemical castration and sterilization for kids, according to Walsh

Big Tech and the left share a coordinated, woke agenda. That is it. An innocent children's book about accepting who you are is apparently “one hell of a problem,” according to Amazon. But I propose that the “hell of a problem” is the biased censorship of conservative speech.
