Technically, it's not censorship. The host is well aware that the FBI has no authority whatever to compel its cooperation; however, they probably appreciate the excuse to remove their association with Stack.

Oh....Yes...FBI maybe..."technically"

In US, "political in-correctness" can be very humiliating or "political correctness" can be very "compelling"

Try publish a book that denounces Israel or Dalai Lama in USA

When China reaches the level of prosperity of USA, China will be better than USA in terms of freedoms and human rights and democracy.  China will have nothing else to worry about.

To publish a book must be a profitable venture for the publisher and has nothing to do with censorship.

In Western countries only a minority is interested in conspiracy theories and in obviously faked stories.

So, it does not make sense to try to sell things which are not in demand.

Unless the fake story is called 'Seven Years in T.bet" by Henrich Harrer,

And is a fairy tale about the DL.

Then you have a best seller.

Actually, you can publish just about anything in the US. There are even publishers who specialize in things like anti-Israel and even flat-out racist books. If you can't get a publisher, you can always self-publish and hire a printer to make the books (it's surprisingly cheap). Failing all that, take your case to the internet.
