Sen. Josh Hawley has found a new publisher for his book considerably less than two weeks after becoming dropped by Simon & Schuster in the wake of the siege of the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump.
Hawley’s “The Tyranny of Large Tech,” a book essential of significant tech firms like Google and Fb, was set to publish in June. But the day immediately after the riot on Capitol Hill, Simon & Schuster explained it would no for a longer period be publishing the senator’s book.
Conservative publisher Regnery announced Monday that Hawley’s “The Tyranny of Big Tech” will arrive this spring.
“Regnery is proud to stand in the breach with him. And the warning in his reserve about censorship definitely couldn’t be extra urgent,” Regnery president and publisher Thomas Spence reported in a statement.
Earlier, Simon & Schuster spelled out its conclusion to fall the guide: “We did not appear to this decision lightly,” the publisher mentioned in a assertion. “It will normally be our mission to amplify a range of voices and viewpoints at the exact time we acquire critically our larger sized general public duty as citizens, and can not help Senator Hawley soon after his job in what grew to become a dangerous danger to our democracy and independence.”
Hawley was among the six Republican senators – along with Ted Cruz of Texas, Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi, John Kennedy of Louisiana, Roger Marshall of Kansas and Tommy Tuberville of Alabama – who objected to the Nov. 3 election results in a unsuccessful bid to hand President-elect Joe Biden’s win to Trump.
Following news of his book’s cancellation, Hawley took to Twitter and criticized the “woke mob” at Simon & Schuster.
Hawley, a Republican from Missouri, has been widely condemned for his encouragement of the Jan. 6 protest that finished with a violent mob rampaging by means of the Capitol.
“This could not be more Orwellian,” Hawley wrote. “Only accepted speech can now be released. This is the Still left searching to cancel everyone they really don’t approve of. I will fight this cancel tradition with every little thing I have. We’ll see you in court.”
Critics soon questioned Hawley’s invocation of author George Orwell. Orwell was notably a committed anti-fascist whose celebrated dystopian guide “1984” is a critique of totalitarian governments.
