Apart from concern trolling at The Daily Caller, I’ve seen no calls for retailers to stop selling the Rhodesian or apartheid-era South African flags. Similarly, only concern trolls have tried to tar Gold’s Gym with the assassin’s brush.
I think they don’t fully understand the most common understanding / definition of ‘concern troll’:
A person who posts on a blog thread, in the guise of “concern,” to disrupt dialogue or undermine morale by pointing out that posters and/or the site may be getting themselves in trouble, usually with an authority or power. They point out problems that don’t really exist. The intent is to derail, stifle, control, the dialogue. It is viewed as insincere and condescending.
Thing is, no-one could accuse either the original poster, ReactionaryThought, or us, with pretending to be sympathetic with the prog agenda; perish the thought! Not in the least. Nor did we post on some prog blog or site.
And the Daily Caller are completely right to point out Amazon’s highly political removal of Confederate symbolism while continuing to sell Nazi and Communist stuff, the apartheid-era South African and the independence-era Rhodesian flags.
If Amazon wanted to be consistent, they’d pull everything associated either with white supremacist and/or mass-murder-promoting ideologies.
But they aren’t.
That is revealing, innit?
