unapproved dryly organizers has said that stage one them protests off the city or forty's turned down their request to hold a parade on low banning what the russian government calls gay propaganda has been in place since twenty thirteen. turkey's president the one has announced counter sanctions on two u.s. officials off to that country first the assets of two turkish ministers earlier this week the round was spock's when turkey detained a u.s. pasta working in the country on allegations of terrorism and espionage. amazon has begun removing products with nazi symbolism from its online store the decision comes off the amazon was criticized for allowing sales by third parties and right wing paraphernalia i was in says it's blokes several said accounts and reviewing the status of others and this is regulations bound policies from selling products that promote hatred violence or racial and sexual intolerance.
8:10 pm
you support our until today has been looking at this story in detail. was and says that it's removed the offending items so story over actually i don't think it is i mean yes to amazon's credit they removed many of the offending items many of the nazi propaganda that paraphernalia that was brought up however just with a cursory review of their store today i was able to find dozens and dozens of books that still openly called for well the introduction of the neo nazi ideology throughout the world i mean as you were saying amazon's terms of service has been banned anything that promotes or glorify hatred violence or religious or racial intolerance however we just a couple minutes of research i was able to find books that said things like they were calling for the creation of a pro white government around the world that we're not going to bow down to the forces of money or jews or other documents that were that were described themselves as sacred texts for the national socialist camp for of the twenty first century and
8:11 pm
beyond so it does seem that amazon is still making money with new nazi propaganda what about those on the other hand he might count such texts are protected under freedom of expression well in certain cases the united states they definitely are the united states is much more liberal of freedom of expression laws than we do in germany in this case at least however i'm amazon itself bans the use of this type of terminology in these type of and these type of material on in their terms of services so the question is why are they actually allowing it to be sold and also while i was look. many of these books at least they they all said that they were shipped and sold by amazon dot com now it didn't appear to be labeled with the same type of etiquette that you'd see if it were being sold by a third party member so it really does seem that amazon is making some type of money or doing some type of business with nazi paraphernalia right that's a very interesting element in this whole story but this isn't the first time that
8:12 pm
we've seen american tech companies actually be accused of giving a platform to extreme elements is it no it definitely is and i mean we've seen time and time again that many of these large tech giants are you know they're going fast and trying to break things they want to be disruptive and they don't really pay attention to a lot of the content that's been produced on their sites the kind of hoping that the community will police itself even in this case amazon also said that any time something like this is flagged by its community members it's removed now we've also seen something like this has come up with facebook and was twitter in recent in recent months in recent years where they're constantly offering a platform to a lot of more extreme elements and it's getting them in trouble now it also kind of comes down to a fight between the european union the united states the united states the much more law a fair approach when it comes to dealing with these tech giants and says that kind of do what they want to do and see what comes out of the end the european union however is focusing on them in trying to encourage regulation of the content that's being produced there they want the companies to actually say ok we're checking the
8:13 pm
stuff in advance now it really doesn't seem up or finding a middle ground yet the companies are moving in those directions but they haven't really found you know that key that will kind of help the the american approach gel with the a more regulatory heavy european approach so i don't really know what the solution is in the in the short term to be honest and have we heard from amazon on this well specifically about this specifically not i mean they have removed some of the other items and i tried to get ahold of them today i put i sent them e-mails that made phone calls as well but we haven't received any official state and yet but as soon as we have that we will report on it that it is thank you very much reporter aaron tilton that looking into this story for us. sports news now at the european championships in glasgow the requisite tumbling in the pool first british women out of piece he broke his own world record in the men's one hundred mi to breast stroke the reigning olympic champion clocked a time of fifty seven seconds dead to delight the home crowd pretty shave zero
