Costco #Nosale Dumps ‘America’

UPDATE

It seems Costco Nosale, er, Wholesale is backpedaling on its decision to deep-six author/producer Dinesh D’Sousa’s new book. After, that is, the discount chain’s management lied about why it dumped the title in the first place, and why they are reordering it now (in two weeks?) after the unexpected public backlash.

The store has kept Hillary Clinton’sHard Choices” on its shelves, despite the fact that, by most accounts, the few people who wasted $20.95 on it are filing it in their starter-log boxes for next winter.

Yet D’Sousa’s book, “America: Imagine a World Without Her,” was tossed out on the eve of its companion film documentary’s—all but guaranteed to be a box office smash—release in theaters last week.

Newsmax:

Thousands of Costco shoppers took to the wholesaler’s Facebook page threatening to drop their store memberships after the retailer pulled copies of Dinesh D’Souza’s newest anti-Obama book from its shelves, but a company official insists the decision was financial, not political.

And the reaction got almost immediate results as the company announced it would put D’Souza’s book, “America: Imagine a World Without Her,” back on its shelves, despite, what it says are poor sales.

“Costco is not a book store. Our book shelf space is very limited,” read a statement posted shortly after 8 p.m. on Tuesday. “We exercise discipline in the best utilization of that limited space based solely on what our members are buying. We can’t carry every title that our members are interested in reading. We are constantly monitoring book sales, and make decisions to pull books off the shelves frequently based on sales volume to make room for other titles. Politics or controversy over content do not influence our decisions.”

Which is why the chain’s co-founders hosted fund-raisers in their own living rooms with Barack Obama in 2012, donating hundreds of thousands to his campaign, and why they still support his efforts to make the U.S. the greatest Third World nation on earth.

As one might expect almost no one is buying either the company’s hastily contrived excuse, or its reason for reordering the title.

“You are lying. This is VERY POLITICAL….or you would have pulled Hillary’s book…which is tanking in sales,” wrote Facebook contributor Julie Ann Busch before the decision to restock the book.

“By refusing to sell an anti-Obama book, you come across as a bunch of self-censoring fascists,” added Shobhna Kapoor.

Even after the decision, anger at the company was still showing on the Facebook page. “Your (sic) full of baloney,” wrote Linda Marie Hamlet. “The book is high on the best seller list. If you think we believe your twist then you need to look at all the comments and those including me who are pulling our membership. Costly move for you, Costco!!!”

So, Costco, I guess it’s thanks but no thanks. America will just buy its baby-butt wipes somewhere else.

But you guys keep up the good work: help Barry hike the minimum wage, so the heretofore hard-working stock clerks at your competitors’ stores can collect their unemployment benefits.
