Sen. Warren Violates the First Amendment, Calls to Ban Book

If a government can hide what it’s doing by censoring its opponents and silencing dissonants, it has a license to do anything it wants.

-Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

Did you know that Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote a letter to Amazon.com, warning them that selling a book could be potentially unlawful? The book in question, “The Truth About COVID-19: Exposing the Great Reset, Lockdowns, Vaccine Passports, and the New Normal,” was co-authored by Dr. Joseph Mercola and Ronald Cummins. The authors, along with Robert F. Kennedy and Chelsea Green Publishing Inc., have filed a complaint against Warren in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington.


In her letter, Warren makes claims and accusations about the book that the plaintiffs allege are “false” and “unsubstantiated.” Even if what she told Amazon about the book was true, the book, at no point, lost it’s constitutional protection. Warren fails to mention what law the platform may be breaking if they choose to host the book for sale. However, it’s obvious that Warren, who is a public government actor, violated the First Amendment by trying to censor a book and limit its reach.


Sen. Warren is an elected government official. Instead of trying to censor the exposing of poor government decision-making, she has the opportunity to be part of the solution. It’s no secret that people on both sides of the aisle are dissatisfied with the current state of the union. Instead of addressing the concerns being voiced across the nation, Warren sought to silence the voices who are trying to bring our problems to light.


This overreach of government power should infuriate anyone who still demands their individual liberties. Warren would not be of any importance if she was not elected to a seat in the federal government. She would not have the authority to silence the people if she wasn’t put into her seat by the people. The First Amendment was added to our Constitution because of power-hungry politicians like Warren, who have no problem violating our human rights for their own personal gain.


This idea that censoring information is going to save the country is beyond absurd. You cannot silence your opposition and hope that they just go away. When people in power try to enforce censorship, they are usually met with criticism. While Warren is currently being sued for her part in silencing Dr. Mercola and Cummins, the media isn’t covering this story at all. Is it because it’s not important?


I don’t know about you, but I’m more curious about reading this book than I was before learning Warren didn’t want me to. I don’t assume that the information in the book is misleading just because a government official tells me so. In fact, I assume that there is something in that book that is so damning to the federal government that Warren saw her future role threatened by angry voters.


We also have to ask, is this a normal occurrence? Is Warren the only U.S. Senator that abuses her power in the name of the greater good? How many books have been successfully censored by members of the federal government? Warren would have been better off allowing Amazon to sell the book. Americans aren’t really stereotyped as readers, so I doubt too many people who have read the work in its entirety. Now, however, I think more people will be interested in purchasing “The Truth About COVID-19.”


The Truth About COVID-19 is currently available on Amazon, and can be purchased here.
