Political Statement by Barnes & Noble?

Original post made by proAmerica, Amador Estates, on Jul 17, 2014

I just noticed that Dinesh D'Souza's book "America" which is currently among the NYT Best Selling List, was placed waaayyyy in the back of the store, faced down among many others. Very very hard to find.

I'm going to guess that despite the fact that Dinesh D'Souza's book "America" is high on the NYT's national bestseller's list, that it's probably not doing quite so well in the Bay Area since we are not as conservative as many other parts of the country. Probably not a political statement by Barnes & Noble. Probably just a reflection of the fact that it's not selling as well as Hillary's book here.

As for the film "America", although you might like it the film has not reviewed well. It has a rottentomatoes.com Tomato-Meter rating of just 9% out of 100%, which is really bad. Only 9% of reviewers liked the film.

What doesn't get revealed by Fox News is that books by D'Souza, Mark Levin, Hannity, O'Reilly, Coulter, all get shoveled up by Koch Brothers in the tens of thousands, sometimes hundreds of thousands, and then send them free to contributors to right-wing PACs and think tanks. The convicted crook D'Souza's book is not moving off of B and N shelves, as no one other than demagogic right-wingers would think of laying down cash for such rubbish.

So, Giorgio, you've read the book? Or are you relying on other koolaid drinking obamabots to form your opinions for you. Lemming......you're part of what's wrong with this country.

Giorgio,

You wouldn't have any proof of your assertion would you?

I eagerly await a link to a reputable site.
