Amazon.com Cancels Sales of Confederate Flag, But Still Selling Items Celebrating Terrorists

Online retail giant Amazon.com quickly jumped on the bandwagon to ban sales of the Confederate flag but a review of it products shows that it is still selling items with murderer Che Guevara on them as well as items celebrating terror groups and anti-Semites Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Taliban.

Apparently Amazon.com thinks that Communist mass murderers and Jew-hating, Islamic terrorists are better and more legitimate than the Confederacy–which has been gone for 150 years.

CNSNews did some searching for these items, too.

Amazon.com joined other American companies like eBay and Wal-Mart last week in banning the sale of the Confederate flag, but the online retail giant has apparently not banned items associated with foreign terrorist groups.

Flags of Hamas and Hezbollah, and armed “Taliban” action figures are among the offerings available with a few clicks of a mouse.

Amazon’s decision to remove merchandise featuring the Confederate flag, reported by Reuters and others last week, came in the wake of the shooting of nine people in a church in Charleston, S.C. by a white gunman who photographed himself draped in the flag.

A search of the Amazon.com website reveals that it has for sale an 18-piece set of figurines described as “Afghan Taliban.” The figures, available for $18.18 a set, are shown carrying assault weapons, ammunition and rocket propelled grenades.

Items featuring the bright yellow flag of the Lebanese Iranian-backed Shi’ite group Hezbollah, designated by the State Department as a foreign terrorist organization (FTO) since 1997, are also on sale on Amazon.

So, American history is evil, but Islamic terrorists and mass murdering Communists are juuuuust fine for Amazon.com.
