Would You Like Some Nazi Flags? Amazon Can Help You With That
Amazon has certainly earned its reputation as the biggest online marketplace, the go-to online shopping destination for, well, anything you could possibly want. But would you continue to do biz with the Internet giant if you knew that they were selling offensive materials? Like ... Nazi flags?
Jezebel ran a story yesterday explaining how Amazon recommended that one of their readers buy Nazi flags as possible additions to his yard. He says he's a history teacher and, thus, a recent Google search for pictures seemed to suggest to Amazon that he might be interested in swastika-laden memorabilia.
Turns out the flags are just the tip of the iceberg.
You can also hunt down Nazi armbands ("for theatrical purposes only"), an SS "Death Head" hat, and a German Flying Eagle Neck Knife that sports a swastika for sale on the site ... mostly sold through third parties. But, still, anyone can access them -- for, let's be honest, any purpose, not just theatrical -- via Amazon.
