Amazon.com Staff: Government ORDERED Us Not to Sell Confederate Flag

Company Sales Reps: We Were “Instructed” by Feds to Ban Rebel Flag

by Bill Callen | Top Right News

Amazon.com staff are telling outraged customers that the company was ordered by the Federal government not to sell items featuring the Confederate flag in the aftermath of the Charleston shooting, according to a shocking audio and customer support transcripts.

Amazon made the announcement this week, along with eBay, Sears and Walmart, that it would no longer sell products bearing the rebel flag, but according to a conversation posted on YouTube between a customer and an Amazon sales rep, the decision could have been made as a result of pressure from the government.

From Godlike Productions (via Paul Joseph Watson):

At first the Amazon staffer claims that the items were banned because they were deemed to be offensive, but when pressed by the customer, the sales rep tells a different story.

“Is this a political statement by Amazon.com or is this a directive that you’re following, that the government said you know we want you guys not to sell these anymore?” asks the caller.

“The government is not allowing us to sell this Confederate flag,” responds the staffer.

“So the government is not allowing you….to sell it?” asks the caller, to which the sales rep responds, “yes.”

“So Amazon is not making a political statement, this is something the government told you to do?” questions the caller.

“Exactly,” responds the staffer.

This disturbing rationale was repeated in online chat queries to customer support representatives:

amazonchat-2

In addition, when customers queried Amazon’s decision to stop selling Confederate items via the company’s official website, they were told by another Amazon representative that the items were no longer available as a result of “federal law” and that Amazon was “instructed to remove all Confederate flags from sale.”

This of course makes the entire story far more sinister. As a private company, it is Amazon’s right to sell what it likes, no matter what people feel about the decision, but if the federal government has ordered the retailer not to sell Confederate flags (while Nazi memorabilia is still freely available), this clearly represents an egregious act of censorship that has no basis in law.

    If this is true – and it’s a big if – then the government is overreaching.

    • John McMickle

      Consider who you are
      talking about, the Obama administration that makes the “if” a pretty small to

      not an if — try to find one — anywhere

    WHERE CAN I GET THAT FLAG WITH OBAMAs PICTURE ON IT…..

  • John Ward

    If this is true, and I suspect it may be, it bears investigating by some independent authority. Or it may just be a script that Amazon has given their people to avoid all the fall out that will be coming.

    • Jedomi

      This admin has given a whole new meaning to the term overreach. Doesn’t matter to me if they lie here our not. Our country has fallen for hundreds of others perpetrated by the Hussein regime. And censorship is nothing new either.

    • dylan

      its true

      • John Ward

        I purchased mine from Discount Flag. Supposedly the proceeds from the Confederate Flag is to be given to the families of the victims. I hope that is the case.

  • Chloe Rowles

    They were told not to sell the flag, or what??? What did the government threaten them with???

  • TNMark

    The same girl that can’t get the order right at the burger joint is expected to understand a flag (whatever that is) at Amazon…

  • csrdrunner

    My opinion ONLY: we did not need the mouth (sharpton, jackson or o), this story has taken on a life of it’s own. I would certainly think it is possible the government told them not to sell the flags while NAZI stuff is available. Do you all know where the term NAZI comes from, NATIONAL SOCIALIST PARTY, hmmmmm think about that. “What luck for rulers that men do not think.” hitler hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm questions??????

  • M Meier

    but our government has NO PROBLEM with Amazon selling ANY other flag, including ISLAM, PALESTINIAN, presumably ISIS and NAZI are still okay… Only the one lag in this country that was a battle flag for our southern soldiers who fought for their states rights and beliefs. Hmmm….

    • Luis DeLoureiro

      Fought for their states’ rights and beliefs……nazi soldiers fought for their beliefs as well. So does ISIS. It was treason and I get sick hearing people defend it

      • joe m

        they didnt want to be traitors….they wanted to leave and have their own country. how is that treason….they had different beliefs. and the civil war was far from only about slavery, so lets stop pretending it was.

  • MILAN68

    Bullshit..obama has taught them well..Blame it on someone else

  • Carol

    Amazon lawyers I hope go after Obama – there are Islam flags available, how come?

  • Wiggle D

    The confederate flag isn’t something I stand behind, but what people do with their own money is their business. It’s not illegal to own. Barry and his cronies can go fck themselves. Amazon and all the other merchants should sell them in defiance of his tyranny.

    • Jedomi

      Agreed

    • Scotster

      Fascist State now…

    • Luis DeLoureiro

      This was a business decision….pure and simple. Most people think that flag is a disgusting symbol. Amazon (and Walmart and Target) don’t want to be associated.
      Also, this is the worst website on the planet. It’s against everything America stands for

  • Not Anonymous

    But you can still buy nazi and communist memorabilia.

      Lol don’t you know who runs snopes? Snopes won’t say anything against obama and his clowns

  • gdad

    Total bull. Sad that anybody would fall for these lies.

    • Jedomi

      Yeah, you probably fell for the Benghazi lie too!

  • Kentucky red

    I don’t see where the government has the legal authority to do that. Not that they do a very good job staying within their legal limits!

  • Sailsalot

    Farewell Amazon.

  • Chester St1

    While I believe that Obama would love to be able to direct stores to not sell the flag I sincerely doubt that an order has come from any Government agency or official for any one to quit selling them. Daniel V has either misinterpreted a company directive or made up the story on the fly to end the phone call.

  • John McMickle

    Amazon is a bunch of
    cowards; people need to quit bowing to Obama. The more they give in the more he
    will push. Everyone needs to fly one of those flags for one day as a protest
    against Obama.

  • Cliff_Skridlow

    Well, I’m fairly sure that it was only a request from the Feds…Bezos is a giant Proglodyte donor, after all. I’m sure he was happy to comply.

  • MikeMarkCA

    The government never learns, do they? Prepare for a massive production run on red flags on a local level, pretty soon they will be as hard to find as .22 ammo.

    • Sammie Jo

      You can always paint one on a slab of wood or metal, or on your roof! LOL

    Really? People believe this tripe? So, you think an Amazon sales rep has that type of inside knowledge as to why their company stopped selling this racist symbol? Or, is it more likely that they were trying to sound informed and mistakenly said that Amazon was “ordered”.

    Websites like this are ruining this country by convincing people with90 IQs that ridiculous stuff is true

  • Wuz nt Me

    Hmm, I’m not convinced, yet. I’ve worked in a call center when the poo hit the fan many times and we just made up convincing-enough lies about what was happening because the people at the top have to form a committee to oversee the committee that oversees the committee that comes up with the “truth” and none of the above actually includes the people that know the real answer.
    The people on the other end of that chat and on that phone are the bottom of the bottom of the totem pole.
    I highly anticipate an “official statement” dissolving the government of any responsibility for this decision.

    Amazon and Walmart knows full well they do not have to obey those orders as there is no law that forbids the sale of this perfectly fine flag. They do not have to obey that order because Worthington has no jurisdiction or right.

    Just because a sales rep tells you something doesn’t mean it is true or they even know what is true. The sales rep is just trying to tell you whatever to get rid of you.
