Big-box wholesaler Costco has pulled Dinesh D’Souza’s new book, “America: Imagine a World Without Her,” just after the nationwide release of the companion movie —- but Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti claims the decision was not motivated by political considerations.
The book, strongly critical of Barack Obama, was officially released June 2. A corporate decision to return the books was issued July 1, just as it is about to debut on the New York Times bestseller list.
Galanti confirmed to Jerome Corsi at WND the “pull order” was in effect and that D’Souza’s book is in the process of being removed from Costco stores this week, with the goal to have all copies of his book out of Costco stores nationwide and shipped back to the vendor no later than July 15.
He claims the decision to pull the book was not political but was based solely on sales, arguing Costco’s national goal is to market books that show up on the New York Times bestseller list.
The book will make the New York Times list July 13.
Jim Sinegal, co-founder of Costco, endorsed Barack Obama (video) at the Democratic National Convention in 2012. In total, Costco has given $100,000 to Obama and another $100,000 to Priorities USA, the pro-Obama super PAC. Sinegal was the author of an email blast sent out by the Obama campaign in July 2012. Obama also held a fundraiser at Sinegal’s house in Seattle.
Read “Costco removing D’Souza’s “America: Imagine the World Without Her,” from shelves. and then decide if you want to keep supporting this radical leftist and funding his donations to a regime dedicated to destroying America. This update, “Costco denies political motive for pulling D’Souza’s book,” expands upon the sorry saga.
In January, Obama paid a visit to a Costco store in a Washington, D.C., suburb, “proving,” as Jaime Fuller of the Washington Post commented, “that his administration’s romance with the second-largest retailer in America is stronger than ever —- and might just be the most successful union of a politician and a supermarket in American history.”
