It's happened again. Amazon has pulled the meticulously researched Easy Meat: Inside Britain's Grooming Gang Scandal by Peter McLoughlin after having sold it for five years. Kindle and Audiobook have also been removed.
It is ironic that a book exposing the pernicious nature of political correctness was banned as politically incorrect.
Peter writes: "I'm rather proud to have had both my books banned. The only reason I wrote books was to ensure that the information was disseminated in physical form before the book-banning came into force."
Here is what Theodore Dalrymple had to say about this book.
"Those who think that political correctness is only a harmless absurdity perpetrated by intellectuals will soon be laughing on the other side of their face when they read this book."
It is still avalaible at Barnes and Noble.
Is there anyone at Amazon to whom the publisher might appeal? Do we know whether it was a human or an algorithm that flagged the book? This is alarming in the extreme.
There is a purge going on at Amazon. I just cancelled all our advertising with them. The books are still available through other outlets and I'm working on moving our e-books to our distributor too. We used to use Amazon exclusively - that's over now.

Just checked: Thank God I can still buy Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf" and Benito Mussolini's "My Rise and Fall" through Amazon. You had me worried there for a while.

does anybody else find it strange that the same hypocrites who were screaming for total freedom of speech only a decade ago are now pressing for suppression of views not in accord with theirs? they've corrupted the culture, education, the courts, law, government, this is an extraordinary crisis. it sucks. yech.
I have appealed the decision on both these books. Will report what happens.
