Amazon is violating its own corporate policy against “offensive and controversial” items by selling pro-Antifa, anti-police and anti-Israel merchandise.
In the past, the company has taken down products that directly violate its policies. For example, as reported by Fox News, Amazon removed the Confederate flag in 2015, and removed “Dukes of Hazzard” from its streaming service.
Amazon’s online list of prohibited products covered “Offensive and Controversial Materials” and told potential sellers what isn’t allowed to be sold on the site, except for “books, music, video and DVD.”
“Amazon does not allow products that promote, incite or glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual or religious intolerance, or promote organizations with such views,” the page reads. “We’ll also remove listings that graphically portray violence or victims of violence.”
