It has been a couple of years since I was last active at Costco as a customer, so cutting up the card really has no real consequence other than as a feel good effort. It is symbolic to me of the greater issue where conservatives and Republicans are too open to ignoring the power of their dollar when it comes to corporate political attacks from the left. I hear Hannity say he does not believe in boycotts. I understand what he is saying there. What I am talking about is less boycott and more spending with friendly, like minded companies. Or at least companies that have not outwardly attacked the right.
Costco almost certainly cut Dinesh D’Souza’s ‘America’ Book due to its overall political closeness to Barack Obama. They deny this, and you are welcome to give them the benefit of the doubt if you wish. I really don’t care to give them the benefit of the doubt. This action – whatever its cause – comes on the heals of years of support for Obama’s team and its full agenda from Jim Sinegal, CEO of Costco. We need to vote in the business world with our dollars for the companies that support our values. Those that offer strong support to the leftist agenda at the cost of our freedom should get far fewer of our dollars. Those that openly attack us (I don’t consider Costco to be in this category) should be never shopped. The reason I had not used Costco in several years is because I have seen Costco’s CEO in cozy little snapshots with Joe Biden. I respect that they pay their employees so much better than many other companies do, and that was actually beginning to turn my opinion of them somewhat. I just cannot get over how they truly are in the Obama camp, and their actions seem to back that up. And that’s regardless of whether they fess up to the likely political action of throwing D’Souza’s book out or not.
