We all know that Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Yahoo, and other major Internet players tend to support the leftist trans-national politically correct agenda. Instances of suppression of conservative or “racist” opinions on sites controlled by these conglomerates are too numerous too mention here. But Amazon seemed to be different. If a book had potential buyers, then Amazon would sell it, regardless of its political slant.
Up until now. According to the report below from Politically Incorrect, the German branch of Amazon has excluded Geert Wilders’ new book from its listings, and the same seems to be true of at least some other European countries.
For would-be purchasers in Europe, there are ways around this, of course. Since the book is still available in the USA (for now), you can ask your American friends to buy it and ship it to you, and then reimburse them. Or maybe you can buy it directly yourself from Amazon USA and have it shipped across the Atlantic…? I don’t know if that’s the case, but if so, click here, or on the book image below, or on the ad on our sidebar.

Is Amazon Europe Boycotting Wilders’ Book?
The new book by Geert Wilders, Marked for Death, is apparently neither being advertised nor offered in European Amazon. About two months before its publication date, it was possible to reserve the book on your Amazon wish list. In that space now, there is an empty window — without even a dust jacket. Unavailable. Then if you go to amazon.de, you find out it no longer exists.
Only an audiobook is on offer — no other format. If you call up the book on amazon.com and then substitute .de for .com in the address line, so you can order the same book in English, the message appears: “Sorry, the web address you have given does not exist on our website.” If you try this procedure with any other book in English, the “translation” from amazon.com to amazon.de works effortlessly, as always.
