Shortly after Costco announced that it was removing Dinesh D'Souza's book, "America: Imagine A World Without Her," from its stores, it soared to #1 on Amazon.Com. Meanwhile, Costco has been licking its wounds from all the angry reactions it has received and has raised the white flag of surrender by announcing that it will be restocking that book at its stores. So not only has the Costco attempt to yank D'Souza's book utterly failed but it has also hurt its reputation with its customers as you can see in the many reviews at Amazon which slammed Costco:

What kind of punishment did they get? They were just hounded into making a profit.
Know who I LOVE? Obama..!
I'm a WORLD-CLASS Fellow Traveler..!!
They lost me as a steady customer.
Costco reps were in the company cafeteria today seeking sign ups at corporate rates.
Told them to kiss my large, white behind.
Costco was reminded that it’s in business to serve its customers, not the personal interests of an apparently partisan CEO. This is economics.
I’d figure why not let the market reward or punish it, if I was such a devout capitalist.
Well, it’s capitalism that affected this outcome, no?
apparently , under the weight of tremendous membership hew and cry , CostCo has decided to rescind its pull order and will be buying more copies ...
Sam's Club is about the same. I think I'll take my business over there.
“They lost me as a steady customer.”
We have both Costco and Sams Club in the area. We will be spending at lot more time and money in Sam’s Club now that Costco has shown there true colors.
It was carpitalism. (As in people carping.)
So what's the problem?
It sounds a bit ironic coming from a crowd that likes to pun about having some cheese with someone’s whine.
So all complaining is bad?
Is that your point?
It just seemed that the conservative answer would be to let Costco punish itself, and then issue some well chosen bons mots when it does.
Wonder where Hillary’s book is placed and whether CostCo has pulled it for the same reason.
Hey Costco, did you really send those books back or did you burn them in the parking lot?
I bought my copy from Amazon. Costco and its’ former boss can go suck an egg.
I’m going to Costco and buy the book once they restock the shelves
