Amazon has banned all nine books of pick-up artist and right-wing commentator Roosh V citing vague violations of their "content guidelines."

From Roosh V:
Starting on Friday, September 7, Amazon has gone on a rampage and banned the paperback and Kindle editions of nine of my books, including my new release Game. The sales pages now give you an error message. Despite repeatedly trying to get answers from Amazon via phone and email, they will not tell me why the books have been removed.

The removals started on the first day Game was released On Friday I received an email from both Amazon's Createspace (paperback) and Kindle Direct Publishing divisions that stated three of my books have been removed because they were in violation of "content guidelines."
The most relevant parts of their guidelines state the following:
We don't accept pornography or offensive depictions of graphic sexual acts.

Offensive content
What we deem offensive is probably about what you would expect.

Illegal and infringing content
We take violations of laws and proprietary rights very seriously. It is your responsibility to ensure that your content doesn't violate laws or copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity, or other rights. Just because content is freely available does not mean you are free to copy and sell it.
Amazon won't tell me which guideline I broke I contacted them by phone when I first got the notice, but they stated that the team in charge of removing books doesn't have phone support. Through email, they told me they could not give me any details.
On Sunday, five more books were banned.
Then on Monday morning I wake up to find that my new book Game was also banned.
I called again but was given the same runaround. The phone rep could not give me details or connect me with someone who could help.

I believe the bannings began because the launch of Game was extremely successful. I sold 2,000 books in the first two days and hit the top 700 on Amazon paperback on the first day. Even before Friday’s launch, Game was already in Amazon’s top 10,000. As far as I know, Amazon didn’t receive a single complaint about the content, but they removed it anyway.
This Big Tech censorship is only going to expand unless President Trump and Republicans move to start punishing these companies for attacking First Amendment and the very spirit of America.
