Last month, Amazon banned Killing Free Speech: Part 1, the first part of a documentary about censorship. Amazon has now censored part two as well, which focuses specifically on Big Tech censorship, but the Democratic Party has joined in the censorship party by what can only be described as an act of Orwellian fiat.
Killing Free Speech Parts 1 & 2 are both still available for purchase on vimeo https://vimeo.com/user79992217
After successfully holding a private screening for border patrol agents, Hansen attempted to arrange a screening of the documentary on Capitol Hill via the office of Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), but was told that any such screening would surely be blocked by the Speaker’s office, which controls theaters on Capitol Hill. Michael Hansen then proceeded to contact his local representative, Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ).
“I went to the local democratic congressman Bill Pascrels office and confronted them with the republicans statement. I asked them to organize a screening. I went as far as to challenge them to prove the republicans wrong by organizing the screening and show the American people that the Democratic party does not endorse censorship on capital hill or on the American people. On camera the representative promised to reach out to DC and set something up.”

The question on everyone’s mind is, what did DC tell Rep. Bill Pascrell about the screening?
After receiving a commitment from staffers at the office of his local representative, Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ), Hansen was subsequently ghosted by the Democrat congressman’s office and never provided an explanation to why Michael Hansen’s movie can not be screened on Capitol Hill. We are left to ask, why is the Democratic Party preventing members of Congress from organizing a screening about censorship on Capitol Hill?
So there you have it, the Left does not even require Brownshirts or thought police, they can censor and silence dissent through an act of omission because they believe, correctly, that the MSM won’t cover it and the majority of the country is too asleep or partisan to care about the shredding of the Bill of Rights.
This sort of behavior from Amazon, which was founded and is run by Jeff Bezos, who also owns the far-left Washington Post, is bad enough, but the Congressional Democrats are our employees, our highly overpaid employees. Never mind the oath they took to defend and uphold the Constitution which they clearly ignored, this latest act of censorship is an egregious and downright insulting act that would be more at home in a Chinese Politburo.
If the Democratic Party is able to apply censorship on Capitol Hill through House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, then what chance does it stand to retain our 1st Amendment rights under a possible Biden administration?
If this incident proves one thing, we are only one election away from Chinese Democracy.
