Amazon Facing Backlash Over ‘Blue Lives Murder’ Merchandise

Published

Amazon says it has a policy against the sale of “offensive and controversial materials” however, “Blue Lives Murder” merchandise, referring to cops as killers, is being sold on the global website and law enforcement officials say they are canceling their subscriptions.

The sale of the t-shirts saying “Blue Lives Murder” was brought to the attention of this reporter by law enforcement, who said they will be canceling their Prime membership with the company over the decision to allow the inflammatory merchandise to sell on its website.

In one communication between a customer and an Amazon employee, which was posted on Facebook, the Amazon employee was questioned about the hateful material.

The customer service response: “Let me check. We stand in solidarity with our Black employees, customers, and communities, and are committed to helping build a country and world where everyone can live with dignity and free from fear. As a part of that effort, Amazon will donate a total of $10 million to organizations that are working to bring about social justice and improve the lives of Black and African Americans. For more information, please visit the Amazon Day One blog.”

“Okay, so I’m going to take that as you don’t support our law enforcement,” said the customer. “Thanks for letting me know. I’ll be sure to spread the world.”

“You have rights to do whatever you think is best but we are entitled for with this information,” the Amazon customer service representative responded.

However, Amazon contends that it has a policy against hateful speech, posting on its website, “Amazon does not allow products that promote, incite or glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual or religious intolerance or promote organizations with such views. We’ll also remove listings that graphically portray violence or victims of violence.”

But that doesn’t appear to be the case when it comes to law enforcement.

“It is disheartening to see Amazon throw its hat into the arena and choose sides over such a volatile topic,” said Chris Cabrera, Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council. “There are over 800,000 Law Enforcement professionals nationwide. It is preposterous that the entire profession would be judged by the actions of so few. Amazon is free to support whoever they choose, however, it is possible to support Black Lives Matter movement without alienating law enforcement as a whole.”

The Amazon anti-law enforcement t-shirts and merchandise became available after the tragic death of George Floyd, 46, two weeks ago after a Minneapolis police officer kept his knee on Floyd’s neck. Floyd, who was African-American, said ‘I can’t breath’ and later died in custody on May 25. His funeral and burial was on Tuesday, in Houston, Texas where he grew up.

Amazon did not immediately respond for comment.

Former New York Police Department Commissioner Bernard Kerik told “The Sara Carter Show” this week that the radical left has falsely suggested that police brutality is endemic. He noted that it is not and that law enforcement officials across the country that have sacrificed for their communities were shocked by Floyd’s death and many have given their lives while on the job.

He said companies like “Amazon, Apple, Google, you name it. You have those corporate leaders in America basically and the keyboard celebrities who get out there who are major influences to the young, they get out there and they put all this radical left-wing propaganda out there and they get these kids to follow it.”

“What they don’t realize is what the outcome is going to be because they don’t know history,” he added, referring to historical warnings, of what happened in Cuba and Venezuela when the communists took control.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’

Published

Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social,  “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”

Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”

It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.

Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.

And the escalation of war is visible.

Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.

Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.

Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”

F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.

Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
