Amazon removes Danish filmmaker’s Islam documentary
'Killing Europe' by Michael Hansen removed from Prime Video service
A documentary by independent filmmaker Michael Hansen about mass migration and Islam in Europe, entitled Killing Europe, has been removed by Amazon from its Prime Video service. Amazon cited 'quality assurance' concerns — despite the fact that the documentary had been hosted on the platform since 2017 without issue.
Amazon’s censorship came shortly after Breitbart News covered Hansen’s new documentary, Killing Free Speech, which addresses the rise of Antifa and big tech censorship in the United States.
In its message to Hansen, Amazon said his previous documentary (which is still available on YouTube) does not meet 'customer content quality expectations.' Amazon would not respond to repeated requests from Hansen for the company to specify what content failed to meet its criteria. The documentary had previously been hosted on Amazon since 2017.
Amazon's email to Hansen is copied below:
'During a quality assurance review, we found that Killing Europe contains content that does not meet our customer content quality expectations. As a result, all offers for your title have been removed and may not be made available as 'Included with Prime' or to Buy/Rent on Amazon.
We have carefully reviewed all impacted titles and only remove titles based on customer engagement/customer feedback. Prime Video Direct (PVD) has always had a policy of reviewing content performance and customer engagement.
PVD remains an open marketplace, and we encourage you to continue making content that will be engaging for customers available on our site. We’re unable to predict whether any future title(s) you make available will be removed.
Originally from Denmark, Hansen says he has witnessed how Antifa and other far-left activists have been able to shut down political expression in the public square in Europe with minimal opposition — and even outright support — from politicians.
'20 years ago you started to see Antifa taking over the streets in Europe. Right now what it is in Europe, if you are conservative you cannot have a street protest — you’re going to get attacked by armed thugs from Antifa. That’s well established.'
Author's comment: Michael Hansen is quite right to be concerned about the potential loss of public space due to violent intimidation by Antifa thugs, something that this author has personally witnessed over the past couple of years during what should have been peaceful demonstrations throughout the UK. What is most alarming is the official funding of these groups through organisations like 'Hope not Hate' - something that should be addressed as a matter of urgency by the incoming Government.
