Costco has removed a book that is critical of its founder’s political leanings and replaced it with twenty-pound packs of frozen bagel burrito dogs. Those are actually delicious if you happen to be wicked high. Dinesh D’Souza’s “America: Imagine the World Without Her” is a book and movie history class on great Americans and how totally fucking awesome they were. It’s a counter to what D’Souza sees as an attack on the self-esteem of America by apologists and hand wringers. I think he means Democrats but doesn’t want to say that . The book version has allegedly been pulled from Costco shelves because it’s critical of the Obama administration. Costco is well known for being progressive sellers of eighteen gallon tubs of mayonnaise and what says progress like squelching the sale of books with political opinions which you disagree. D’Souza responded to the Costco book pull by saying something cheaply politically correct, which is somewhat ironic given how he lambastes that in his book:
“We’re in the process of finding out what’s happening. I look forward to getting to the bottom of this and continuing the strong relationship my publisher and I have always had with Costco and their millions of shoppers.”
That doesn’t sound like something George Washington would’ve told the British. How about, fuck off, Costco commie bastards! Costco’s co-founder James Sinegal has strong ties to the Democratic party and apparently thinks the Curves gymnasium masses who shop at his stores are susceptible to right wing Yankee Doodle Dandyism. Naturally, Sinegal has the right to sell or not sell whatever the fuck he wants at his quaint boutiques. And America has the right to buy their 1,248-ct boxes of tampons wherever they want. Isn’t that after all what makes America great? Gross hoarding.
