Costco's Censorship and Why You Should Boycott Them

If a conservative doesn't like a TV show, he doesn't watch it. If a liberal doesn't like a TV show, he demands it be removed from the air. That's just the way it is. It's called intolerance in this case and censorship when it has to do with political views.

You might remember when a bunch of liberals tried to get Rush Limbaugh thrown off the radio because they simply don't like what he believes. They also tried the same with Scott Walker, the governor of Wisconsin, but the majority of voters didn't go along with the gimme gimme liberals and he won the recall election.

In Ray Bradbury's dystopian novel, "Fahrenheit 451" he describes a future America where books are outlawed and "firemen" do not put out fires, they burn books. The temperature at which paper spontaneously burns is 451 degrees Fahrenheit, which is where Bradbury got the idea for the title. But more importantly, the idea that books could be outlawed or censored in any society is deplorable.

This is exactly what Costco is doing reports the Washington Times.

Dinesh D'Souza's book, "America: Imagine a World Without Her," is being taken off the shelves of Costco for reasons that are unstated by the company. I believe I know why, however, and it really should piss you off as it did me. 

The book explores the damage done by progressive-minded policies, particularly by the Obama administration since he has been in office. These policies are supported by Jim Sinegal.

Sinegal, Costco's co-founder and "one percenter" big Democratic party donor, helped Barack Obama get re-elected in 2012. He even spoke at the Democratic National Convention. He loves Obama and Obama loves Jim.

It isn't that the book isn't selling. At Amazon it is ranked No. 43 overall and No. 3 in their Politics and Government. It is No. 1 in the Commentary and Opinion subsection of Politics and Government. In fact, Costco sold over 3600 copies of the book, but in spite of that, all the D'Souza books are to be off the shelves completely by the "Ides of July."

D'Souza is baffled by this and said, "If true, this would be very odd."

Amazon readers rate the book 4.6 out of 5. It sold 4915 copies in the first week and 5592 in the second. yet the New York Times (aka "The Old Gray Commie") mysteriously failed to list it on their bestseller list where it would have been No. 8 and No, 11 by June 29th, the WND reported. 

The Times should change their slogan to: "All the news we see fit to print."

And Costco should be boycotted.

Conservatives make up a majority in this country. We have more power than we realize but we tend to be either too nice to boycott or too caught up in our need for convenience and price. If all conservative Costco members turned in their cards, got their refunds for unused time on the remainder of the card, and emailed these censoring fools, it would make a difference.

But most people will not do it. I know, it's a hassle, but not as much as actually having to literally fight for our freedoms and rights. I did that in war and I hope you will do the same. No bloodshed, just no Costco. Sacrifice made easy.
