Oh Joan. I know. You’ve never gotten the respect you deserve. But you may have gone too far on this one. I’m not defending Cosco. I hate all of those big box shitholes. And yeah, I’m sure you could use the money from book sales. But did you have to be such a dick about it? Just tell your hordes of followers to ban Cosco. Make a video parodying or demolishing Cosco and all that stuff. Or, say some crazy shit that doesn’t make sense, but has all the jingoism of a true
Tea Party patriot.
“It’s about First Amendment rights…Costco banned my book because of one word on the back cover. I feel like this is a country where the people should have the right to have the literature they want…This is the beginning of Nazi Germany.” – Joan Rivers
Now to deconstruct the stupid shit you just yelled at a camera to garner national attention.
1) First Amendment rights have nothing to do with selling a product through a private business. A business has the right to sell the products they choose. If you cared so much that Cosco would refuse to sell your book, you should fire whoever gave you shitty advice, or let them approve the book before you mass produce it.
2) People do have the right to the literature they want. They didn’t ban your book because you made serious claims about mandatory abortions or sending a minority group to labor camps. They banned it because it didn’t flow with their shitty, traditional-value literature policy.
3) Pretty sure that’s not how Nazi Germany began. I’m no expert. But unless a national political party is equal to private national corporation, and unless your likely-decent book is equal to democracy in it’s entirety…you’re a fucking idiot.
4) Cosco books suck, you may was well buy your books from Sam’s Club. Or BJs.
