Skip to comments.According to Borders' employees' own website: Booksellers Intentionally Damage UNFIT FOR COMMAND
Posted on 09/15/2004 8:08:11 AM PDT by bigsky
Take a second to read through the astonishing postings (link below) on Borders unions website. As you will see... the attached postings are primarily from really annoyed liberals, and a couple of them refer to ongoing tactics to keep UNFIT FROM COMMAND away from the public.
Here's one example:
"We're 'finding' that most of the few copies we're getting are damaged and need to be sent back, so sad. Too bad, Bushies! Regnery needs to be more careful. I'm hearing from people at 2 other stores that this seems to be common.
Why should we help destroy what's left of our country?"
or how 'bout this one...
"You can probably get Regnery's corporate number from Books in Print or off the web. I'd keep it handy and then whenever a customer asks for this book, tell them that Regnery isn't keeping this book stocked and it may be because Regnery is a pinko-commie-fag publisher who's trying to bury this story by not printing enough copies of this book. Tell them you even read on the web that Hillary Clinton is on Regnery's Board of Directors.
And, after all, you did just read on the web that she's on the Board and that it's pinko-commie-fag publisher so you wouldn't be lying. Well, maybe you shouldh't use "pinko-commie-fag." How about pacifist lesbian outfit? Not that there's anything wrong with that."
...or this one...
"You guys don't actually HAVE to sell the thing!
"Just 'carelessly' hide the boxes, 'accidentally' drop them off pallets, 'forget' to stock the ones you have, and then suggest a nice Al Franken or Micheal Moore book as a substitute. Borders wants those recommends, remember?
"I don't care if these Neandertals in fancy suits get mad at me, they aren't regular customers anyway. Other than 'Left Behind' books, they don't read. Anything you can do to make them feel unwelcome is only fair. They are the people pushing retailers to cut costs, don't forget. And they would censor your speech, your books, your music in a heartbeat, so give them a taste of it!
"Don't get mad, get even!"

Please FReepmail me if you want on or off my infrequent miscellaneous ping list.
If borders allows this behavior to continue they will soon be out of business.
Leftist= narcisstic dictator
Anti-Bush sentiment on a UNION website..nnnaaaaaahhhhhhh....it can't be!!!!!!!!!/sarcasm
I would seek out someones corporate HQ and alert them. Intentional damage is costing someone a lot of money.
Yet, it's still #1 on the Best Seller List!!!!
Sometimes the truth goes a long, long way....
That's funny because I used to drop Hillary's book on the floor in Walmart and make sure it was pretty dirty.
Send this to Drudge, Hannity, etc, ASAP!
THIS NEEDS TO BE MADE PUBLIC. Have you sent it to Rush, Hannity, Hugh Hewitt, or some unknown "hungry" reporter who needs a big story? On top of the Sandy Berger thing, The Swift Boat Vets thing, the Dan Rather thing, this could be the death knell for Kerry if it gets out.
I guess they couldn't find any matches!
And they accuse conservatives of being Nazis!
How could I have left Drudge out of my post (#10)? Let's get this thing out?
I had my kids "read" Hitlary's book but somehow, the cover always ended up torn and grubby.
LOL or coffee stains on it :o)
Why doesn't Borders just host a weekly book-burning at their central distribution facility.
Bring Your Own Hatred
They can just hoist a Nazi flag and claim allegiance to the Fourth Reich. Heck, they hate Christians, Jews, and everything else that displeased Hitler. Let's just call a spade a spade here.
I think its totally ok to destroy the books and hide them. I mean, we have to think of our country and how evil bush is. why should we allow people to say bad things about kerry when no one can seem to say anything bad about bush. its not like the vets need the money from their books. Its not like they even deserve any money because they are just liars.
we should not have to respect the freedom of speech of those that are not putting this country in the right direction. michael moores books are what everyone should be reading because he is so right about how evil bush is. bush is so evil.
/parody of inspid liberal crusaders
Typical liberal gall, accuse those who never censor anything of being guilty, while committing the crime themselves. What Nazi's.
I just emailed Drudge and Lucianne.com. Can you do some more?
I gotta go and get out of my jammies ;) and run some errands.
I'll check this thread later. I intend to take a copy of the Union Forum thread to my local Borders whose manager assured me there were "innocent" reasons why the bookstore didn't have a copy of "Unfit for Command" available.
(I just ordered a copy from Amazon!)
whats ok for us isn't ok for the neanderthals!
do as i say not as i do.
ahhh clintonian logic. gotta hate it.
