Macbeth: Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased, pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow, raze out the written troubles of the brain, and with some sweet oblivious antidote cleanse the stuffed bosom of that perilous stuff which weighs upon her heart.
Doctor: Therein the patient must minister to himself.”
― William Shakespeare, Macbeth
Secret Amazon Meeting to Ban Conservative Children’s Book – Walsh wrote a book satirizing the transgender cult, and it became a best-seller on Amazon. The woke crew who runs Amazon isn’t about to let that continue. A leaked Zoom call has surfaced in which Amazon employees discuss plans to take the book off the recommended list and stunt its sales potential … essentially banning Johnny the Walrus.
Libs of TikTok has the video. In it, an employee of Amazon calls the satire “problematic” and says it’s been “a very traumatic experience for transgender Amazonians and our transgender customers.” The employee vows that “there are things in the space that are happening” to deal with this trauma. “It’s one hell of a problem,” the employee says about the book, before bringing a “customer” onto the stream who lies about what is in it.
Amazon leadership held a session for employees dealing with the “trauma” of Matt Walsh’s book becoming a best seller and dealing with his trolling. They strategize on how to demote it on their site and claim he will get people killed. @MattWalshBlog broke them. pic.twitter.com/AKH8ihO0iV

Listen to these depraved and mentally ill high-level employees of Amazon plotting to “burn” a book. The ideological rot in our enemies’ minds is deep and is metastisizing.
During my “career” in publishing, I edited and published more than 200 books for Houghton Mifflin in all areas from fiction to science fiction to Tolkein to history to science to politics to social concerns… all subjects. Never once in all those years did I think or hear anything remotely like the sheer malicious mendacity and calm fascist drivel oozing out of the mouths of these moral cretins. It simply didn’t occur in the editorial meetings, the corridor chats, or private encounters with one’s superiors behind closed doors. It didn’t occur because of some secret agreement on publishing from a stiff set of ideological principles. It didn’t occur because we simply didn’t have that kind of structure in our brains.
It wasn’t that I bought and edited books to be published that were darlings of the left/liberalism mindset dominant in publishing in those years. I brought in a number of titles that were not. In fact, one of the reasons I was hired as Senior Editor and Director of Trade Paperback Publishing was that I came from magazines — Penthouse Magazine — and would bring in books others would not. (And no that does not mean “Porn,” laddies.)
Before and after Houghton Mifflin I worked in magazines. They were, in order, Organ Magazine (founding editor), Earth Magazine, City Magazine (Founding editor), Penthouse Magazine USA (Senior Editor), Omni Magazine, Penthouse UK and Penthouse Europe (Publisher and Managing Director), Penthouse.com (Vice-President). In magazine publishing, I edited thousands of articles on every imaginable subject and — as a quick study and star-class bullshitter — wrote thousands under my name and others.
From 1972 until 2002 I worked all over American publishing, attend conventions and tradeshows and supervised at printing plants for 6 million copy runs. In all this time and space, I never once — no not never — had or heard of any conversation remotely like those above.
In the early 1990s, I became Employee #3 of The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) as their Director of Communications. Founded by Mitch Kapor (Lotus 1-2-3) and John Perry Barlow (Grateful Dead) I worked closely with Mike Godwin (Godwin’s Law). The original purpose of the EFF was to make sure the protections of the Bill of Rights were extended to cyberspace. At this remove, I have no idea what the EFF is up to but I’m fairly sure it’s Woke-Infested. Godwin’s gone Woke Squared and Kapor is Woke Cubed. Barlow would still probably be for the initial idealistic purposes of the EFF, but he’s dead. Nevertheless, this was another organization I joined in which I never heard the whisper of fascist speech suppression. It had nice ideals. Today it is mainly a sponge for tech millionaire donations.
What those self-inflated Amazon bags of flatulence are bluttering about should be deeply shameful to any person who believes in the principles of free speech. Yet these diseased minds seem to be both shameless and clueless. This tells me that the rot is deep and broad. This tells me the tumors cannot be cured with anything less than a hot wire cauterization deep inside the skull.
Once again I am reminded how the woke virus has infested untold millions of hosts so deeply that although they might once have been our political opponents, they are now our enemies and need to be treated as such wherever we meet them. The only intervention that can possibly save them at this point is a spiritual awakening they are unlikely to receive outside of the sheer Grace of God.
Oh, did I mention that at age 18 I was on the steering committee of the UC Davis branch of The Free Speech Moment and was at Sproul Hall on December 3, 1964; the day that we invented the people that became, two generations later, the insects above? Well, I just did. And those bugs above were not what we meant; they were not what we meant at all.
