Report: Amazon removes Clarence Thomas documentary from streaming service

Nothing brings out racism on the left like a conservative Black man. This latest move makes it hard to imagine any other motivation.

Amazon has apparently removed a documentary about U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas from its streaming platform during Black History Month, according to The Federalist. The PBS documentary,  “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words,” appears to have been made unavailable as other titles are featured for the yearly commemoration. 

The publication noted that Amazon’s message indicated “This video is currently unavailable to watch in your location,” when the reporter tried to select it in Denver. However, other outlets were reporting the same phenomenon across the nation.

The documentary was widely lauded at the time of its initial release last April when it aired on PBS. “It is a marvel of filmmaking that two hours pass so quickly. At the end of a screening I recently attended, there weren’t many dry eyes in the room,” Washington Post Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Kathleen Parker wrote about it at the time. “Thomas is an American hero,” she said. Audiences also loved it enough to give it a 99% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Still included for viewing with Prime membership are two titles about Anita Hill who had accused Thomas of sexual harassment during his confirmation hearings. Also featured for Black History Month is “All In: The Fight For Democracy,” with Stacey Abrams about voter suppression, which some, including Abrams, had blamed for her 2018 gubernatorial defeat.

Thomas called his 1991 confirmations hearings a “high-tech lynching” because of the way he was treated by lawmakers set on barring the conservative black justice from being confirmed. “I mean, come on, we know what this is all about,” Thomas said in a more recent clip from the now-removed documentary. “This is the wrong black guy. He has to be destroyed, just say it.”

Perhaps this was an oversight by the corporation. Or, perhaps it is part of a problematic purge on the part of the corporation that included the removal of “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment,” a book critical of transgenderism, according to the Independent.

Justice Thomas has served the court honorably for decades, and as a black man doing so should be afforded the proper respect during Black History Month. Removing a documentary that treats him favorably can only be explained by the fact that Thomas was right — only minorities who buy into the left’s race-baiting agenda will ever be properly honored.

They think that if we dont read the truth we will be like a bunch of sheep and be herded off to slaughter. Im so sick of the deliberate censoring and the insurrection that is within the Whitehouse and has been there since election day that we are all morons like the ones who voted for them that we are to stupid to see what they are doing. If any man no matter what position they hold civil or government even tries to infringe our Constitutional Rights. They are breaking the law and are committing treason. They need to be held accountable and either be hung or exiled from this Nation forever.
This isnt a game. This is real life and what they are attempting to do in the Whitehouse is take the power away from the people. The Constitution was written to protect us from this. Im appalled at what they think the people will put up with. Or should put up with. Its time to call upon our Senators, Governors, Legislative Representatives. Supreme Court Justices and stop the Insurrection From Within the Whitehouse.

Dear Colleen the problem is not just in the White House it is in all three branches of the of the government, thanks to ignorant democrat voters that believe everything the media tells them. Anybody that believes what a lemon tells them is just not to smart. Anyone else on CNN for that matter, or the rest of the fake media. That is why Trump call them the enemy of the people, they lied so much you didn’t know when they were telling the truth.

Everyone should no longer buy anything from Amazon! Clarence Thomas is one of the remaining SCOTUS that has the fortitude to adhere to the U.S. Constitution. Cavanaugh and Barrett along with Roberts do not adhere to the U.S. Constitution. They were hired to perform a specific job and taken the Oath to defend the U.S. Constitution, but they all three are cowards and disgraced the American people concerning the Fraudulent election!

I agree !!!
The only problem is, Amazon have become such a huge part of everyone’s lives (especially since the craziness about the virus) that most of the people go on Amazon to buy whatever they need !!!
That’s crazy, but there is no competition so this is probably exactly what they intended to become : a giant that nobody could live without!!!!!

You are right. But I will never be one of their dumb sheep. They don’t want to hear the truth. Those who believe the Democrats will never be free from their plantations. The Democrats like when they say they care about Blacks and women. They do everything they can to keep them down. Their “equality bill” clearly shows that they don’t care about women at all.

OMG!! Colin Kaepernick? He is a self proclaimed communist and has done absolutely nothing that I am aware of to make him worthy of a Smithsonian display. I am sick of the cancel culture and it is especially alarming that Amazon and the Smithsonian would buy into it. Clearly, the bragging by the communist party in China about having made in roads into the highest places of our government is true. I hope the Republicans elected will know how to fight this and will fight it.

I was just making a purchase on Amazon. I am disabled and using this format makes my life much easier. Let me also preface my next comments by saying I am a white woman in my 60’s so I have seen a lot regarding racial injustice. I was around during the hearings for Judge Thomas and saw what he went through with dignity and grace. I don’t care if I have to crawl to get what I need I will NEVER buy anything from Amazon again. EVER!!!! What a disgrace.

Clarence Thomas is a Supreme Court Justice and was featured in the original documentary. I will protest what Amazon did even if they don’t care. What Amazon did was blatantly racist in the true sense. It’s lousy politics to delete him from the documentary, but it is racist, as well because he was blocked. Isn’t that what liberals are always yelling about? Prejudice against blacks? C’mon, they acted in prejudice against a black person!

Madeline Stolk (@guest_1156017)

I concur, DO NOT BUY from AMAZON. Speak out loudly about this and do not reward Amazon by ordering anything from them. I was getting ready to put an order in when I saw this and I stopped immediately. This is reprehensible. We need more individuals like Clarence Thomas in government and certainly on the Supreme Court. He is an avowed Constitutionalist who is not afraid to speak out against things that are anti-Constitution. This can be taken as racial inequity but in reality it is Conservative inequity as well. If Thomas was not so strong on the Constitution and more left leaning it would not be happening. SUPPORT CLARENCE THOMAS and REFUTE Amazon. They are trying to censor him and us.

We often said “We will never let it happen again” referring to Nazi Germany and what Hitler’s racist hatred did to the Jews. Well, it’s happening here. Instead of the Jews, it’s happening to conservatives and whites. The lame stream media and big tech as well as digital media are censoring anything to do with conservative ideology as they did during the last Presidential election and the Senate runoff in Georgia. They are now doing the equivalent of burning books by refusing to sell them, as Amazon is doing, and inferring that all whites are racists. Making one group the enemy is how Totalitarians start to change minds against that group. This is what George Orwell wrote about happening in his futuristic book: 1984, written in 1949. If you think this censorship is not important then you are the problem. This censorship is what formed Russia and China as well as Iran and Iraq to name a few. If you can’t see this then you are doomed to live with the conquences. As a great Statesman and Founding Father once said, “Give me liberty or give me death.” I agree.

Are we really supposed to be surprised by the Elitist Democratic RACISTS who prefer young blacks learn about the communist murder accomplice Angela Davis, or the prevaricator Anita Davis rather than people lie Thomas, JC Watts, or Herman Cain, all great Americans who’d have made a far better president than Mr. Obama.

The far left Stalinist, oops, Harris/Biden regime of erasing, cancelling, and silencing conservatives, Republicans, libertarians, and constitutionalists is gaining steam. Their DNC controlled MSM Pravda and the BLM/ANTIFA Sturmabteitlung will see to it.

Justice Clarence Thomas is the only Supreme Court Judge that is qualified to have the job, and supports the Constitution of America. What the hell is wrong with the other Judges???? That they can’t do what they took an oath to up hold the Constitution. Are they COWARDS, or does Judges Amy Barrett worship the devil, because If she is religious God would definitely not be happy with her. She bowing to another and its not Jesus Christ. Kavanaught, and Robert’s are Deep State. They are like those three monkeys sitting beside each other ONE COVERS HIS EYES, ONE COVERS HIS EARS & ONE COVERS HER MOUTH TO HOLD HER MOUTH SHUT

If you don’t want to be the laughing stock of America. Then do your damn jobs, and hear the election fraud cases. Stop the taking of our Constitutional Rights, first and second Amendments. They stop Biden he is incompetent mentally and declare those forty executive orders null and void. Then have him removed from office mentally incompetent pedophile. He is not fit to be president period. You know it and I damn sure know it , because I’m telling everybody

This is tyical of the Liberals and Black leadership. If a person does not follow their guidelines they first ingnore them and then seek to obliterate them. These folks have no use for opposing opinions. Read a book by George Orwell which could serve as their Little Red Book, Mein Kampf, or other delusional literature. Yes 1984 has finally arrived.

HOW CAN MITCH MCCONNELL, MITT ROMNEY, THE SUPREME COURT (and others) BE SO BLIND AND IGNORANT?IT IS “INTUITIVELY CLEAR TO EVEN THE MOST CASUAL OBSERVER” THAT THIS ELECTION WAS FRAUGHT WITH FRAUD TO OVERRIDE THE LEGITIMATE VOTES!!!!FURTHERMORE; THE SENATE AND HOUSE WERE DERELICT IN THEIR DUTY TO VERIFY ALL LEGITIMATE VOTES WERE COUNTED, AND ENSURE THAT ALL NON-LEGITIMATE VOTES WERE REJECTED!!!!I fully support President Donald J Trump, recognize he truly loves this country and stands firmly for what is right, for the Constitution and for We The People of The United States of America. There is a very huge silent majority who recognizes that We as well as He are under attack by the radical left. Democ’rats. (Which is what the Democrat Party needs to be renamed as that name accurately reflects their Attitude and Hate for all that is good for our nation.) Democ’rats should never be referred to as being the Democratic Party, because there isn’t anything in their platform or conduct that indicates they adhere to Democratic principles. Anyone who refers to them as being Democratic or being The Democratic Party is either ignorant or lacks even an ounce of intelligence. Just make sure as Republican members/candidates for the Senate and House you will fully support and stand with President Donald J Trump, truly love this country and stand firmly for what is right for the Constitution and We The People of The United States of America. If you do, I am confident the huge silent majority will elect/retain you to represent them. DO IT!
