Someone did some digging, and found a Seattle law that contains sweeping prohibitions for discrimination based on political ideology. Amazon might need to take note…

One of the things I learned in the second year of law school, which any Libertarian with a high school education could figure out faster than I did, is that any law restricting rights (and that’s mostly what laws, and all regulations, do) can be made to apply to prevent or compel exactly what it was intended to prevent.  I do support and understand the idea of non-discrimination, but maybe it’s better to let society workout these kinds of things out consensually over time.

I’m not a card carrying Libertarian anymore, but they are right on some fundamental things. 

Now all we need is a censored victim to invoke this law.  Good find!
