According to Borders' employees' own website: Booksellers Intentionally Damage UNFIT FOR COMMAND
Borders Union ^ | Sept 15, 2004 | Borders' Employees

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!"

Unbelievable!

If borders allows this behavior to continue they will soon be out of business.

That's funny because I used to drop Hillary's book on the floor in Walmart and make sure it was pretty dirty.

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.

Why doesn't Borders just host a weekly book-burning at their central distribution facility.

BYOH

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.

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!)

Typically publishers accept back damaged returns at no cost. Given this information, Regnery should refuse to refund money for damaged copies. Let Borders eat the cost of their employees (illegal) vandalism.

Thanks for posting these remarks by the union thugs at Borders.

Just another example of the little brown shirted Nazis in Borders doing the old Nazi thing about books that expose them.

Borders is a rat infected left wing brownshirt organization that doesn't deserve any business from real conservatives.

$crew them and boycott them!

Just for kicks I ordered another from Amazon.

Price = $16.97

2nd Day Air = $11.48

Total =$28.45

That is less money than $27.95 plus sales tax at Borders and I don't have to drive over there. I have a shipping confirmation email, so I know it is in stock.

Borders has condoned, fostered and allowed this behavior since the 1990's. I gave up on them when I tried to by Rush's first book.

Make sure Regenery Press knows about this.
They don't have to take back damaged books, and Borders will have to suck it up and either sell them or pay Regenery for them for intentionally damaging the stock.

Bastages!

Someone send this to Drudge.

Neither link in your post work! I was about to send Borders an email with the links and the following comment:

I was preparing to purchase several expensive computer programming manuals from your company. After reading these comments from your employees I will take my business to a more ethical company:

I will let my friends know about this and recommend that they look elsewhere for their books, too.

With many of us, the first thing that came into our minds when we read about this outrage was the Nazi Book Burning before the Nazis plunged Europe into total hell.

Unfit for Command has done America another service by 'outing' the Leftist Fascists for the freedom hating totalitarians they are. These people are ready, willing and able to deny the Freedom of Speech to their opponents and burn/ban books. THEY are the Nazis.

I just bought my copy at Borders in of all places, Tomkins County, NY (home of Ithaca and definitely "behind enermy lines"!!!).

The old enough to know better clerk (they never comment on my purchases at this store) could not help herself and asked me if the book were a pro-Bush or anti-Bush item. I replied as far as I knew Bush did not appear in it and hence it took no position on Bush. Rather, it concerned Vietnam War activities.

Amazing, they do not seem to be able to sell this book without scrutiny, a fifth degree, or some comment.

I might add having read prior posts here and knowing just exactly where I was at the time, I was somewhat steeled for some desk inquisition and my comments were appropriately terse and delivered in a "you should know more about your store's products than the customer" attitude.

I think it flustered her as she had slide trouble trying to run my card and at first was going to blame the card when it was obvious she could not come close to hitting the slot. When she could see I was not particularly amused by any of it, Voilla (a Kerryism) we were done--mission accomplished.

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?

For anyone wondering, according to those nutters over at Free Republic, we commie fag booksellers are indeed sitting on the titles in the sort rooms. Not just Borders mind you, but ANY store ANYWHERE that sells books. (As we all know, Wal-Mart is well stocked with communists.)

With that thought in mind, many of them are calling the books stores and tormenting people until they sell the mighty stocks that we are withholding from them. Not only that, but these useful idiots are being told by at least one talk radio show host that book stores have the book, and are simply sitting on it.

Frankly, many of my coworkers and I are growing very tired of taking abuse day after day about this stinking book. One of my coworkers (and while I agree with the sentiment, they shouldn't have said it) who was taking crap from a wingnut on the phone finally lost it and said something to the effect of, "You know, I don't know why you'd want to read it anyway. its all made up!" and hung up the phone. Everyday, we keep getting crap from them, and what the hell do we get in return? A note from Vin saying that no political coversation is allowed with anyone at anytime. (In case you were wondering, the store is not a very conservative one, but since its in the bible belt, they keep crawling out of the woodwork.)

That said, one of my managers told me the other day that Regnery is indeed sitting on it in order to boost demand. Any truth to that?
