I Prayed have prayed
Lord, protect the freedom of speech that is being threatened in our nation right now and strengthen our leaders to take a stand against censorship.

The Daily Wire came to actress Gina Carano’s aid after she was unfairly fired from Disney for her social media messages.

This week, SalemNOW offered a similar service after a right-leaning documentary got shelved without warning or reason.

“Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words” screened nationwide last year courtesy of PBS stations. Director Michael Pack’s film allows the Supreme Court Justice, famous for sharing few public words, to detail his upbringing and judicial philosophy. Viewers learned of the justice’s impoverished childhood, his flirtation with radicalism and how Democrats attempted what he called a “high-tech lynching” to keep him off the highest court in the land. . . .

“Created Equal” landed on Amazon’s on-demand platform after its traditional broadcast run without incident until a few weeks ago. Then, Amazon abruptly pulled the film focused on the only current black member of the Supreme Court during Black History Month.

The company offered no reason for the film’s removal from its platform nor any warning that such a step might occur. The title remains unavailable on Amazon, but the company allows the DVD version of the film to be purchased on its consumer product side. . . .

Enter SalemNOW. The new video streaming service specializes in right-leaning, faith-friendly titles like “No Safe Spaces,” “Church People” and “What Killed Michael Brown?”

The video distribution arm of Salem Media Group just added “Created Equal” to its content lineup. . . .

Amazon previously attempted to block the 2020 film “What Killed Michael Brown?” from its on-demand services. Amazon initially told the team behind the film, a contrarian take on the Ferguson man’s death in 2014, that the documentary didn’t meet the streaming service’s quality criteria and the decision was final. . . .

Amazon quickly backtracked following media attention on the issue, allowing “What Killed Michael Brown?” to be streamed on its service after all. . . .

More recently, Amazon removed a well-researched book critical of the current trans movement. Ryan Anderson’s “How Harry Became Sally” is no longer available, according to Amazon, because it “frame[s] LGBTQ+ identity as a mental illness,” a claim the author denies.

Four Republican senators have dubbed Amazon’s actions “political censorship” in a letter to former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

Abigail Shrier, whose book “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters” was removed from Target’s digital shelves, offered a warning about the future given the current climate on her Substack page.

“As a direct result of Amazon’s action, many outstanding books will now go unwritten; they will not be commissioned whenever Amazon’s distribution is the slightest bit in doubt. As I write this, authors are being dropped by agents or politely refused representation, based on what the agents now know Amazon will not carry,” Shrier says. . . .

It is sad to say but this is a function of systemic racism compliments of our corporate Big Brother, Amazon. When people’s ideas and views are shut out of the public discourse or made unavailable it is deplorable. The convenience of Amazon has become a consumer narcotic because of ease and convenience, however, we each need to determine if their values represent where our dollars should be spent in support of a company with this ideology and sharing common ownership with the Washington Post, a media outlet that never lets the fact prevent what they see as a good narrative. Neither Amazon nor the post is a business in the capitalist sense, they have become political weapons. Lord, please grant our elected officials the wisdom and courage to take on these monolithic entities that seek to harm our nation, spew lies, and reduce you people’s ability and opportunity to hold discourse. Their endgame is one of darkness, please Lord, grant us your power and let your light shine through us to fight this evil. There is no darkness you light cannot overcome. In Jesus’ holy name, amen.

Thankful
for Justice Thomas and his willingness to speak out against the infringement of big tech against the rights of American citizens. He and Samuel Alito appear to be the only true conservatives on the SCOTUS. Praying for a turnaround in our country daily. Father God, I ask that You would raise up more men and women like him in our judicial system across America.

I watched the documentary on PBS and was so enlightened and blessed to watch it. I feel Clarence Thomas is a wonderful person. Actually as a much younger person, I watched him battle his way into the position on the supreme court and loved him then. I admire him so much more after watching this story and recommended it to many. When I realized it was no longer on youtube or anywhere to view I couldn’t believe it. Grateful to read that this outlet has it. It’s pretty infuriating what is happening. Will keep on praying. Waiting for breakthroughs in many areas of our lives. Thank You, Father, for Clarence Thomas and his influence. I pray many more doors open for him in whatever way You have for him to be used for the good of this country and its people, especially black young men and women.

Our progressive brethren and sistern can’t stand an independent thinking black like Thomas. They are the moral offspring of slave traders.

Amazon, like the tower of Babel, will have to come down.
Amazon is not the supreme law of the land or the world.

May people with GUTS continue to write and to read and to publish!

Amazon should be cancelled by every single Christian and conservative. It would make a mighty impact and cause them to change their ways. We used to buy most of our products from them, but stopped purchasing ANYTHING on Amazon. Lord, I pray a legion of Christians and conservatives stop feeding the dragon by using this service and others that chose to cancel conservative voices.

Lord, be with us as we go through this trying period in our lives, help us to be strong and stand up for Your values. Show us how we can preserve our history when everything good is censored today. Lord be with our liberals and Democrat friends, “give them persons with godly counsel and God-fearing advisors.” Prov. 24:6

I have not seen the documentary but I am quite familiar with Salem Media. They are a wonderful Christian based media company that runs Air1Radio, Klove and numerous other Christian media outlets. I pray they are able to become the Christian version if Amazon! I live only 20 minutes away from thier hq and have always wanted to work for such an amazing organization.
We desperatley need more bold Christian organizations.

Acts 4:11 and when they saw the boldness of Peter and John and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus.

Acts 4:29 Now, Lord, look on their threats, and Grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word.

The more they try to silence us, the louder we must speak!!!

Heavenly Father, I pray you slay the media giants as well as the Amazon giant that are censoring good and propagandizing evil. I pray just as you handed Goliath’s head to the young David, you will hand the “heads” of these giants over to those who would have use them for truth.
In Jesus’s Precious Holy Name,
Amen

The Justice Thomas video can be seen on PBS and Netflix. We watched its original airing on PBS, found it to be a very honest, unbiased account. Anyone, regardless of race, who grew up iimpoverished yet was able to work their way out, will appreciate Justice Thomas’ candor regarding his humble beginnings. The video is an eye-opener for everyone else.
Thank You, God, for Justice Thomas and his desire to live his life to Your Glory.

Typical behavior for the Last Days/End Times that we are living in. Justice Thomas deserves better. Political Censorship has become the new normal in our society. Lord, how we need revival to come to our nation! Please send it, and please let it begin in Washington D.C., where we need it the most. In Jesus’ name we pray.

I had a very, very difficult time finding this documentary which is so well done and taught me things I didn’t know about Justice Thomas. Originally, I could find it on YouTube, but then it disappeared. I’m thankful it’s back and just ordered the DVD. It’s a wonderful documentary on a very determined justice who has lived out the American dream in spite of over-whelming odds of poverty and prejudice. He has truly lived up to the American ideal and is a patriot. People of all ages should watch this video and be inspired. I love this man and am sorry his friend and cohort, Antonin Scalia, is not there anymore. The two of them were formidable. Let’s pray Justices Kavanaugh, Barrett, and Gorsuch stand up for our American Constitution with courage and resolve also

FACTS AND TRUTH ARE BEING DENIED TO THE AMERICAN CITIZEN. CENSORSHIP AT ITS WORST. TRUTH BE TOLD ABOUT THE FACTS, IT INTERFERS WITH THE LIE AGENDA. TRUTH AND FACTS INTERFER WITH THE “POWER AND CONTROL” AGENDA. SOME AMERICANS KNOW WHAT IS COMING AND SOME ARE IN FOR A RUDE AWAKING AND THEY ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE IT. CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR AMERICA. GOD HELP US PLEASE. MANY PEOPLE HAVE LOST THEIR WAY AND ARE BEING SEDUCED BY THE LIES THE POWER HUNGRY PEOPLE TELL.

I was familiar with Justice Thomas’ story but when the film was released in theaters I drove over an hour with my 15 year old grandson to see it. He is interested in law and is a person of color. I wanted to share my admiration and respect for JusticeThomas with him and to encourage his young mind to pursue his goals and use his God-given talent similarly. The time invested was worth the the drive and certainly the price of admission.
If you haven’t take the time to watch the film please do! You’ll be inspired.

The documentary is outstanding. We are all shaped by our past. Good & bad experiences provide a choice for us to either overcome or give in. It helped me respect him more than I had before, not only because he was conservative but why he is that way. I highly recommend it and glad it is available again.
