  • Amazon's Confederate Double Standard

    All symbols of the Confederacy are rapidly disappearing from stores, websites and the public square in the wake of last week's racially charged shooting in a Charleston, S.C., church, but the purge of some allegedly hateful icons has spared memorabilia linked to some of history's most infamous mass murderers, some critics are charging.
    Amazon.com has now banned all Confederate battle flag items from being sold on its site, but the massive e-commerce site continues to allow the sale of dozens of apparel items featuring communist mass murderers such as Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin and Che Guevara, prompting some to accuse the site and others banning Confederate imagery of hypocrisy.



    “If Amazon is removing the Confederate flag from its offerings, the logical and principled decision is to stop selling any promotional material, including T-shirts, of Che Guevara or any mass killer."

      It's all good in da hood.

      My worst jump story:
      My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
      As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
      No lie.

        Oh, NOW you're for free enterprise.

        Again with selective morality.

          Since when did logic actually apply? If that logic were applied I have the feeling we would be short of quite a bit of imigary.

            Always have been for most issue. No selectivity at all.

            Oh, no mention of conservatives flipping he opposite way on this? Talk about selective, you should have been one of the first to post the same type comment I did. Still don't see any thing like that from you.

              How about common sense? Is that in terribly short supply as well?

                  I didn't know that Che Guevara was a big name in the news right now. I must have missed the protests and demonstrations.

                        But, MM, that is common sense. Germany bans the Swastika. And it works! There's no Nazis in Germany at all today! So, as we all know, banning the Confederate flag will eliminate all hate in the US!

                              The Confederate flag means different things to different folks. Problem is, everyone is right. Symbol of hate? Yes. Symbol of Southern culture? Yes. Important part of American history? Hell yes.

                              Just leave the damn thing alone.
