Big mistake from Costco. Not only are they losing money, they are squashing political debate and angering half the country.
What in the world were they thinking? If liberals were actually confident in their ideas, they would have Saul Alinsky’s book right next to Dinesh D’Souza’s and let the American people decide for themselves who is full of it.
NEW YORK – The retail giant Costco Wholesale has issued an order to remove all copies of Dinesh D’Souza’s bestselling book “America: Imagine the World Without Her” from the shelves of its stores nationwide, WND has confirmed.
The book, in this mid-term election year, is a strong rebuttal of the progressive ideology behind President Obama’s policies, which have been supported by Costco co-founder and director Jim Senegal, a major Democrat donor and a speaker at the 2012 Democratic National Convention that nominated the president. A Washington Post political reporter has noted Obama’s “romance” with the nation’s second-largest retailer.
At Amazon.com, D’Souza’s book, released June 2, is ranked No. 43 overall and is the No. 3 hardcover book in Amazon’s Politics and Government section and No. 1 in the Commentary and Opinion subsection of Politics and Government.
Costco has sold more than 3,600 copies of “America” nationwide, with about 700 copies sold last week as D’Souza’s film by the same name opened at more than 1,000 movie theaters nationwide.
But Costco’s book department issued the “pull-order,” requiring all Costco stores nationwide to remove the book, confirmed Scott Losse, an inventory control specialist in the book department at the Costco Wholesale corporate office in Issaquah, Wash., a suburb of Seattle.
I have seen “America” and it was legit. I strongly suggest you go see it. The way to stick it to Obama and liberals is by making sure movies like “America” are successful, so more will be made. Vote with your wallet.
Ironically, “America” defends companies like Costco and entreprenuers who want to make a profit, and now they go and stab Dinesh in the back.
