Amazon is still selling the Confederate flag, but not to Americans.

Censorship is stupid.

Won't solve a single problem.


And responsible 'self-censorship' is divine.

It's the world liberals want. If they don't like something, it gets banned... or bullied, or harassed... until it goes away. All in the name of tolerance and acceptance.


HEY - it was a 'business' PR decision nothing banned by any government or law.


That's *exactly* what they want you to think !!

Too many people/members will avoid this topic because it has been presented as a race topic. This is not even about the flag anymore, they can take it down at government facilities, but infringing on every ones right is unacceptable.

This is the government bulling companies and assaulting the 1st amendment.

"The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting ..."

If members don't pick up on this topic/issue to either prove it wrong/right or to discuss then something is wrong and my username is accurate for the majority of the US population (American Zombie).

It is not the Government telling people anything.

I hope not, my bet is that you were trying to discredit a thread with no facts, at least for your sake I hope so.

Sorry - what facts were missing from my post??


The quoted section I included covers the constitution, who is actually taking action is covered by the title of the thread........those are the 2 premises - I supplied the conclusions that fits them.

What's the problem?

You ignored the evidence/facts, it's okay most liberals do. I know it must be a tough job pumping bogus propaganda all day everyday sometimes you just run out of stuff to say. Well, good luck with the communist agenda.

PS~ thanks for keeping the thread alive .

Sorry - what facts?

Amazon are not selling the flag, amazon are not the US Govt (or an agent of it), the 1st amendment prevents the Govt from curtailing free speech - therefore amazon not selling flags is not a first amendment issue.

That's not a liberal interpretation or anything else - it is a simple summation of facts - are any of them wrong?


What is the propaganda there??

I'm not going to summarize the whole thread for you, if you don't want to look at or acknowledge the article, links and screenshots that's your prerogative, but I you keep posting without acknowledging the information in the thread I will report you for suspicion of trolling.

Right - fair enough - you don't actually have an answer to my simple question - which is NOT about the whole thread - just about the idea that this is a first amendment issue

Thanks for taking the time to highlight the bankruptcy of your position in this matter. Several times!!

I don't see how your link was proof of the (any) government 'banning' (as it may it a crime to possess or display or own) the confederate flag. You are reaching here.

Interesting that you feel this way now because it wasn't that long ago you were telling us how toys r us should remove toys from their toy store.

Anyway I agree censorship will solve nothing if anything it pisses people off more.

Eventually they will be slowly avaiable again. Heck many blacks have the confederate atop their roof on their classic car (not all of them general lee style but certainly inspired). Yes the flags are not forbidden and legal, the companies took them down voluntarily to not run counter to American street sentiment.

It seems that while most merc of the confed flag is still avaible on amazon DE, they did take down the flag itself today. I am sure its still plenty available from other services in Europe. Its just like with the Nazi flag, impossible to get in Germany if its not out of somones attic, but just go a bit further east and you get a bust of uncle adolf if you fancy that.
