About the time I was posting this, it came out that Costco has now reversed the decision, but still ... In the book, D'Souza takes on the undermining of the concept that America is essentially good, at least from the perspective of her motives. He challenges the message that America's history is one of theft and plunder, alleged by the progressives, liberals, and Marxists as being the defining features of American history. He knocks down the straw men of the theft of Native American and Mexican lands and the exploitation of African labor, and moves on to disprove the basis for claims that, prior to Obama's presidency, our foreign policy was based on stealing oil and promoting a capitalist system that robs people of their "fair share." A movie based on the book debuted last weekend in theaters nationwide. Now why would Costco take such a book off the shelves? Reports now indicate they've "changed their minds," but only because of negative publicity about it the last 48 hours -- but mysteriously none from any of the major media outlets, including Fox, National Review and Weekly Standard. Hm.
