Our friend Michelle Malkin and war-blogster fave Little Green Footballs are posting this delicious story about the employees’ union at the Borders book chain whose members are openly trying to sabotage sales of Unfit for Command. Here’s an entry from the union’s Internet discussion board:
“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 Michael 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!”
The union seems to have quickly removed the discussion from the web–but LGF has kindly provided the link to its Google cache.
Liberals–such champions of free speech!
