Amazon Defends Product Aimed At Police With The Caption “Blue Lives Murder”

Big Tech companies have become the gatekeepers of the progressive movement since they helped the Democrats and Joe Biden steal the 2020 election. For months, companies like Amazon and Facebook have been at the Democrat’s disposal. They started by de-platforming former President Trump and have now moved on to censoring any person or product that goes against their liberal agenda. Most recently, Amazon defended a product on their site that promotes the killing of cops, yet months ago they canceled doormats that offended Muslims. 

It isn’t just Muslims that Amazon wishes to please as they also removed a T-shirt that mocked Vice President Kamala Harris. Sadly, that isn’t all – Amazon went on to announce they would no longer be selling books that shine the LGBTQ community as a “mental illness”. And who could forget when the company yanked a documentary about conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas during Black History Month. To date, they still haven’t given an explanation as to why they pulled the film.

Earlier this month, reports started circulating about a blue T-shirt for sale on Amazon with the inscription “Blue Lives Murder”. But even with numerous complaints from customers and pro-police organizations, Amazon continues to sell the item, even adding merchandise with the horrible message. Now, people can buy the “Blue Lives Murder” message on a black baseball cap and even an outdoor headscarf for those windy days spent looting businesses. 

As for Amazon, they are standing by the product claiming their job is to offer “the widest possible selection.” A spokeswoman from Amazon reiterated the company’s goal, saying, “We do not endorse the content of any particular book, video, or product. We understand that some customers may find some products objectionable, and we provide customers with a variety of ways to engage and express their views, including through product reviews.”

Little did Amazon know that the Detectives’ Endowment Association was investigating the product and found some interesting literature on the company’s website. According to the union’s chief financial officer, Brian Olsavsky, Amazon is breaking their own rule as the retailer admitted they do sell products that “promote, incite, or glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual or religious intolerance, or promote organization with such views.”
