Amazon has removed a documentary exposing menace mass migration and Islam pose in Europe from its Prime VideoService, citing “quality assurance” concerns as justification for the platform’s censorship.
The documentary, Killing Europe, produced by independent filmmaker Michael Hansen, had been hosted on Amazon since 2017 without issue. But after the conservative-leaning new site, Breitbart News, reported on Hansen’s new documentary, Killing Free Speech, Amazon removed the documentary.
A slated screening of Killing Europe was canceled by the Ottawa Public Library last year, following intimidation from left-wing activists.
In his latest documentary, Hansen exposes the rise of the militant leftwing group and Antifa and Silicon Valley’s censorship of conservative outlets in the United States. The documentary also features exclusive interviews with an official at the Council on American-Islamic Relations regarding the status of women in Islam.
Hansen received notification from Amazon claiming Killing Europe does not meet “customer content quality expectations,” but the company will not specifically define what content breaches its criteria.
Breitbart News obtained the full email Amazon sent to Hansen informing him of the Killing Europe’s removal.

Killing Free Speech is intended to sound the alarm about the perils of the European approach to free speech amid leftist groups in the United States shutting down political expression in the public square, Hansen explains.
“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 Antifa. That’s well established,” Hansen explains. “What I fear is that here in the U.S. you’re starting to see the beginnings of the same thing. If you’re conservative nowadays, you gotta run a gauntlet between these armed thugs. If you’re not careful here in the United States you’re going to lose that public space, it’s happening rapidly.”
In an interview with InfoWars earlier this week, Hansen explained he’s been targeted by ANTIFA for producing his documentaries.
