Amazon has taken another step towards political censorship, banning all books by Dr. Joseph Nicolosi, a psychologist associated by critics with the rise of “gay conversion therapy.” This follows its ban on a book by Islam critic Tommy Robinson earlier this year.
According to LGBT news site PinkNews, the online retailer took action against Nicolosi’s books after repeated complaints by U.K. citizen Rojo Alan.
This is the latest in an increasing trend of digital book-burning by Amazon, the company founded and owned by anti-Trump billionaire Jeff Bezos.
In February, the company banned several far-right, white nationalist authors. In March, the company went further, banning Muhammed’s Koran, a book by Islam critics Tommy Robinson and Peter McLoughlin highlighting violent passages in the Islamic text.
