History buffs must now look elsewhere for their Confederate flags and associated Civil War memorabilia. Under growing pressure from a mob of bloggers and writers, Internet retailers like Amazon, Ebay, and Etsy announced they would no longer sell Confederate memorabilia.
An eBay spokesperson said the flag was a “contemporary symbol of divisiveness.” Officials from Amazon and Etsy then followed suit, issuing similar statements.
But while you can’t order Old Dixie, these equally vile items remain for sale, highlighting the trend of selective news cycle-driven moral outrage.
