Here is a recording of a guy calling Amazon and asking them why they stopped carrying the Confederate flag. At the end she admits the Gov't told them to.
We can still find pix on line also, and print them onto T-shirts, etc. Even if you can’t sew.
I’d like to see the government order in writing otherwise they’re just making up a story to cover their rear ends.
There are many actual Confederate flags that few know. So, they are easy to slip through. My friend, a Confederate nut, if you will, long ago stated the Bonnie Blue Flag should be the prime flag for Confederate pride and symbolism.
As for the Gadsden, I still prefer the naval standard, with our stripes and a simple elongated snake.
Thanks for the ping. As many have commented, there is no federal law to support this. But Amazon would be foolish to resist when the Gestapo commands. Probably Obama and his czars would go after their tax situation if they did.
Is it fair to say Amazon caved because of my tagline?
Color me not surprised
Here, I found this article (Business Insider, unfortunately, so it’s probably 98% bullstein), but
Send ‘Jeff’ and email with ‘?’. Enough of those might get his attention.
So that is why all these companies have come out at almost the same time, the government has decided to stomp on the first amendment.
time to impeach
just cancelled my prime membership. when will these morons learn that if you are in the consumer market, involving yourself in politics pisses off half of your customers? I’m not even interested in buying one of the flags but I’ll be damned if I give my money to someone who says I can’t.
Doesn't hurt to try though...
Yeah, we often see one company do something that could be chalked up to an idiot liberal overreacting (i.e. Starbucks talks about race) but Walmart, Sears, Etsy, Ebay and Amazon all spontaneously doing the same thing at the same time? C’mon... and still selling Nazi and Mao stuff?
“If he ever leaves people will be SHOCKED by what was going on in the White House”
Oh yea, who’s going to tell them? The republicans? Did
baby Bush investigate the Clinton’s? Is Lois Learner
in jail yet? Obama will walk out of office, nose in the air
and will be a pain in the ass to America for the rest of
his sorry ass life and baby Bush 2 will let him get away
with it all. In fact I wouldn’t doubt that the next republican
president would seal the Obamas records for life.
Seems I spoke too soon.......
I was looking for a thread to suggest that was likely.
It’s an app- what the hell does it do? What’s it for?
