Amazon Bans "COVID-19 and the Agendas to Come, Red-Pilled" by James Perloff

Amazon Content Removed COVID-19

Amazon removed a book titled “COVID-19 and the Agendas to Come, Red-Pilled” by James Perloff due to “content guidelines” violations. The book had sold 3,500 copies, and the Kindle version was about to be released. From Perloff’s blog post:

…Amazon sent me a second unsigned email. This one indicated that Amazon was completely removing the book from sale—suddenly, it was no longer about rights; now it was about violating “content guidelines.”

I asked Amazon to specify what content guidelines I had violated. Their answer wasn’t enlightening:

We’ve reviewed your book “COVID-19 and the Agendas to Come, Red-Pilled”, and found that it is in violation of our content guidelines and we will not be offering this title for sale on Amazon. We reserve the right to determine whether content provides a poor customer experience and remove that content from sale.
