eBay to Ban Sale of Confederate Flag Merchandise … Really, They Missed A Lot and They Seemed to Have Forgot to Remove the 2008 Hillary Clinton Campaign Buttons


This is what the slippery slope of censorship looks like … Its one thing for a State not to fly it at the Capitol, but now comes the purge of all things with the Confederate flag.

The hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton and the Confederate Flag …

It would appear that eBay has jumped on the band wagon to ban the sale of Confederate flag merchandise. According to eBay spokesperson Johnna Hoff, “We have decided to prohibit Confederate flags, and many items containing this image, because we believe it has become a contemporary symbol of divisiveness and racism.” REALLY? Because as of this morning, a simple search on eBay of “Confederate flag” brought up over 10 pages, 50 items on each page, of Confederate flag merchandise. So what is next, pretending like Civil War never took place and the scrubbing of Southern history?

I personally think slavery was one of our darkest hours in the United States and this existence of racism and bigotry is reprehensible; however, I find the exploitation of a heinous crime disgusting as well. This country has made great strides from the days of slavery, more so than many other countries where it continues today. I am not a fan of the Confederate flag, I am not from the South, I am more of a “Don’t Tread on Me” flag fan. But how long will it be before that symbol offends people? Hell, we have people in this country that are offended by the American flag, Old Glory.

How About this One?

Even Hillary Clinton chimed in on South Carolina’s removal of the Confederate flag from the Capitol building, but maybe Hillary would like to discuss her 2008 Hillary Clinton campaign buttons with the Confederate flag on them complete with Stars and Bars. By the way, that button is for sale on eBay. Oh, but that’s different, that was 8 years ago, what difference does it make. Right? In the video below Hillary Clinton said, “recognizing  it as a symbol of our nation’s racist past, that has no place in our present or our future.” Did she feel that way when Bill Clinton signed a Law Honoring Confederacy in Arkansas Flag?  Then comes Hillary’s anti-free speech comment, “It shouldn’t fly there, it shouldn’t fly anywhere.” Sorry folks, as long as people are allowed to burn the American flag as an example of free speech, flying a Confederate flag has to be allowed as well. You don’t get to allow one and not the other.

Hillary Clinton Says she appreciates the removal of Confederate Flag, but what about her campaign buttons?

eBay will ban the sale of Confederate flag merchandise, the auction site announced Tuesday, in a decision that follows in the steps of major retailers like Walmart and Sears.

“We have decided to prohibit Confederate flags, and many items containing this image, because we believe it has become a contemporary symbol of divisiveness and racism,” eBay spokesperson Johnna Hoff said in an email to CNN. “This decision is consistent with our long-standing policy that prohibits items that promote or glorify hatred, violence and racial intolerance.”

Hoff added that the company continually monitors and evaluates its 800 million products on its site to ensure that they are “consistent with our core purpose.”

The company’s decision mirrors that of Walmart and Sears, which have also removed Confederate flag products from their stores.

The controversial flag has come under intense scrutiny following a racially motivated mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, that left nine African-Americans dead in a historic church. On Monday, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley also called on the Confederate flag to be taken down from the state’s capitol grounds.

      Sorry, but those are not official campaign buttons. If they were produced by the campaigns they would have to have the “Paid for by XYZ for XYZOffice Campaign” disclosure. None of those shown above have that.

      Here are the rules:

      The display of a confederate battle flag is an expression of free speech.

      Those in the business world are free to remove any merchandise in their inventory.
      In this case, they have decided to allow the race mongers and left wing nuts to make the decision for them. Indeed, it is a slippery slope that the public should not be going down because of the PC crowd. If the PC nuts are successful this time, what will be next?

      I am from the South and my grandfather was a Sgt. in a Mississippi regiment who joined at age 17 and fought the entire war. There is a huge civil war cemetery East of Vicksburg, Mississippi and another at Knoxville, Tennessee.

      this is just another tool for the democrats to use like racism. the civil war is over. the only slaves out there now are those who are slaves to their own hate and also slaves to the democrat party. the democrats know they have control over the black community and will push them to riot and destroy property if needed. ask the supposed mayor of Baltimore where she got the authority to “give” these rioters a place to destroy ?

      Hillary Clinton had nothing to do with those buttons. They were made by a private individual for personal profit. This bogus story has been circulating throughout the internet by lazy journalists who made no attempt to do any research.
      SM: But she had everything to do with Benghazi and the death of 4 Americans. She had everything to do with lying about emails and the use of a private email server with classified information. She had everything to do with scrubbing her server to make certain that no one found evidence of her criminal activity.


      Even Democrats know she is a liar and unfit to be president.
