[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Countless Americans have been outraged over the left’s reaction to the Confederate flag that has flown on or near the South Carolina since 1962. In the aftermath of the tragedy in Charleston, the left has chosen to focus their rage not on the actions of a deranged psychopath, but on the Confederate flag which seems to have nothing to do with the senseless slaughter of nine innocent people.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Adding to this bonfire of controversy, Amazon, the humongous online retailer, announced that they would be pulling all confederate flag merchandise from their site- a tremendous victory for liberals who have learned that fomenting faux-outrage and yelling over one another will yield the desired, politically correct results.
Undoubtedly, Amazon has been besieged by angry comments and calls from customers and former customers who are outraged that the company would knuckle-under so easily and bow to the demands of the easily-offended.
However, it seems we may have been too hasty in our judgement as new evidence has emerged indicating that Amazon pulled the merchandise after the federal government demanded that they do so.
Audio from a phone conversation between a customer and an Amazon representative indicates that the government has forced the company to remove the products.
“Is this a political statement by Amazon.com or is this a directive that you’re following, that the government said you know we want you guys not to sell these anymore?” the caller asked.
“The government is not allowing us to sell this Confederate flag,” the representative responded.
“So the government is not allowing you….to sell it?” the caller pressed.
“Yes,” the representative responded.
“So Amazon is not making a political statement, this is something the government told you to do?” the caller questioned one more time to clarify.
Further, other Amazon interactions have come to light as Amazon representatives have confirmed that they have been “instructed to remove all Confederate flags from sale” by the federal government.
Below are reportedly screenshots of an interaction with an Amazon representative who claims that “federal law” has forced them to comply and remove Confederate merchandise.
If this is true, the implications are truly terrifying. We are currently saddled with a despotic regime that not only lies to the American people on a regular basis on severely important issues affecting all Americans, but we have a regime that is furthering preposterous narratives and fomenting racial hatred while simultaneously squeezing companies to acquiesce to their political narratives and pull merchandise that the Obama regime does not want the American populace to have.
And who could blame Amazon? We saw what the Obama regime is willing to do to journalists who ask tough questions and to Tea Party groups who defy their radical agendas. Amazon cannot afford to invite the wrath of the almighty Obama regime.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
