Amazon Goes Orwellian Over Flags

I rummaged through the Internet looking for Confederate flag memorabilia on Amazon, earth’s biggest store. It was there en masse a week ago. Now, it’s all gone, because the psycho killer, Dylann Roof, waved the flag before his horrifying murders of nine innocent black men and women in a Charleston black church. There is no evidence at all that the flag killed anyone. Roof was criminally mentally ill, a thorough criminal, and a horrible guy — when he picked up the flag.

There are thousands of rebel flags at cemeteries throughout the south. They are put there and refreshed constantly. Are all of the people who put down those flags on the graves of the Confederate dead criminals? Should the flags come down from public buildings? Fine and dandy. They are an affront to black men and women whose ancestors were slaves. Yes, take them down and put them in a museum. But to take them out of stores where they were being sold just a few days ago? To keep Civil War buffs from having them in their homes? That is pure Orwellian mind control. Who is so wise and all-seeing that he knows what symbols to take down and which to allow? Ben Stein asks in The American Spectator.

Ben Stein is a writer, actor, and lawyer, who served as a speechwriter in the Nixon administration as the Watergate scandal unfolded. He began his unlikely road to stardom when director John Hughes cast him as the numbingly dull economics teacher in the urban comedy, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."
