    G00gle misdirecting searches for D'Souza's 'America'. Filmmakers Demand to Know Why

    The move comes on the heels of Costco allegedly removing the movie's source material, Dinesh D'Souza's book "America: Imagine a World Without Her," from its store shelves. Lawyers representing Dinesh DíSouzaís newest film, America, have fired off a letter to Google demanding that the search engine correct problems that they say are hampering the ability of consumers to figure out where the movie is playing. The letter claims that Google has been confusing America with 2016: Obamaís America, which was DíSouzaís first movie and has been out of theaters for two years, while Lionsgate released America on July 2

    Don't shop there, anti-2A libs. So, his book not being there has zero impact on my search for it.

    Wait. Hold the presses. Costco has caved.

    Costco has reversed its decision due to overwhelming opposition from members when it decided to remove this book from its stores. Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti announced that Dinesh DíSouzaís book, ďAmerica: Imagine the World Without Her,Ē will remain available to members and will be re-shipped to stores that have removed it.

    LOL Fool me once and shame on you. Fool me twice shames me.

    Costco has shown its stripes many times, particularly its sly gun prohibition and, now, book-banning an influential anti-government screed. That they caved when called out merely demonstrates their lack of principle.

    People seem to forget that this same author stated America was responsible for the 9/11 attacks due to it's immorality. That was prior to him becoming a right wingnut huckster. Why anyone would buy his crap is beyond me.
    It may be that Costcoís response to DíSouzaís book was due to the fact that DíSouza is a confessed felon. In January, he pled guilty to violating campaign finance laws.

    money talks

    I do not understand why any of us would support any business or corporation that actively and publicly work against us. I do not like costco and therefore costco will never have access to my wallet.

    Sarah Palinís book, ďAmerica By Heart,Ē was sold on their shelves. Bill OíReillyís books are sold at Costco and so have numerous other conservative authors, but those actually sold.

    Like all liberal critics, the American people may prove the liberal critics"review" to be nothing but liberal claptrap...again.
