Amazon, Ebay Ban Confederate Flags (But Not Nazi Coins, and Not Communist Flag) as Newest Identity Politics Crusade Gets a Full Head of Steam

Tapper asked this of ebay:

eBay makes some nonsense distinction:

Their explanation as to why Nazi coins are permitted, but the Confederate flag isn't is nearly as compelling as this Mensa Chapter President's:

Their explanation as to why Nazi coins are permitted, but the Confederate flag isn't is nearly as compelling as this Mensa Chapter President's:

Meanwhile we've got some more purging to do. Now we have to remove all the statues of Confederates in statehouses.

As many of you said: This is just the first demand. This demand just sets up the next fifty.

I still have no particular love of the confederate flag, but I am deadly tired of the Crusaders.

I am also, as a conservative, done with Favors for Corporations. Personally, I think that if corporations are going to serve as the eager agents of the Thought Control State, then they should be punished, not rewarded. (Second thought: Saying "punished" is too strong-- they deserve their free speech, too, and if they want to appeal only to the Identity Politics Crusaders, they should have that right. But as a conservative, I'm through with defending them against the Democrats' demands for higher taxes. If the progressives are their political allies, then let them get their tax breaks from Nancy Pelosi.)

Sorry for the light posting. I joked that I would get the Batflu today. In fact, the Batman game came, but I did not open it.

I'm actually under the weather, and doing other business that needs doing, including writing a major endorsement for Mike Flynn. It's a hard thing to do, because I am putting unreasonable demands on it: that it has to be spectacular. I fear my ambition exceeds my ability, as is sadly so often the case.

Writing is like I hear golf is: an endeavor almost deliberately designed to frustrate you and remind you you're not very good at it and never will be.

But I swear, I am not playing Batman. The game is unopened; the shrink wrap is intact.
