The Great Purge of 2015

The Great Purge has begun. Confederate flags 'n such have been yanked from PC-obsessed vendor sites like Amazon and eBay.

Even if you already bought the stuff, on eBay, it just disappears, and it gets replaced in your purchase list with a very cryptic message.

From: eBay

Seems kinda gosh-darn Orwellian to me. 

Ben Stein agrees.

Stein also notes that while the Confederacy has been banished,  Nazi or Communist paraphernalia is still being vended on sites like Amazon or eBay.

In the past six months, I've spent a ton of money on both eBay and Amazon. Books, camping gear, fishing reels and more. But I think I'm going to hold off on using these sites for a while, in the hope they come to their senses.

I've never been a fan of censorship. And I'm even less a fan when it's done hand in hand with purging symbols representative of American history, and seems designed to move us in directions that can only be described as intolerant and totalitarian.
