Interesting move, i know for a fact Amazon has been selling items of, perhaps, a questionable background for a while. It being as easy as a click of the button to find items such as 'the turner diaries' on there.
I am curious as to what degree they'll end up banning items though. Certain items (say a confederate flag) occupying a decided grey zone in terms of whether it is supposedly 'racist', 'far right' etc.

They removed the products because someone pointed it out, they won't and probably never will actively moderate their marketplace.

Point and proof. That took me 2 minutes of searching.

This has been happening for a long time, since 2017. Much of the stuff they have removed is not Nazi at all, but they call it that in what seems like an effort to justify the censorship. The Southern Poverty Law Centre, the same radical left organisation that helps police YouTube and which has led to a lot of draconian bans and measures on that platform, is also behind this Amazon censorship.

Jeff Bezos has broken his promise to keep Amazon free of censorship, a place where you can find the good, the bad and the ugly, all things that are published legally. People have to now resort to independent sellers for these banned items and I wonder how long it will last before censorship catches up with those as well.

I watched a video of somebody on the phone ordering an NFL shirt that you can have a personal message on the back.

Operator "What would you like on the shirt sir"

Customer.... "Free Hong Kong"

Operator Tap tap tap tap......"Sorry sir it wont accept it. "

Customer .....How about "Kill all cops"

Operator Tap tap tap ....."Yes that's ok sir"

That would look tremendous above the mantlepiece!
