DAILYKENN.com -- Try buying a Confederate battle flag on Amazon and prepare for a disappointment. In a virtuless signalling ploy the online retail giant banned the flag.
But what impact did it have? None. The reason? Confederates are killing no one.
Not only is Amazon targeting the wrong "hate groups," a report from from The Times in London has exposed the raw underbelly of Jeff Bezos' international cash cow and how it is funding a massive UK-based hate group.
The British government's counter-extremism commissioner has flagged The Muslim Research and Development Foundation (MRDF) as “the main Salafist organisation in the UK.” That's transcends any shallow hate group alert sounded from America's Southern Poverty Law Center.
Nonetheless, you can donate to MRDF via Amazon simply by making a purchase. A percentage will be funnelled through the Bezos matrix to the coffers of the hate group if you elect to support the group.
Reminder: 771 people of color were killed by hate groups in September, 2018 alone. All were killed by Islamic hate groups. None were killed by so-called "neo-Confederates."

From The Times of London ▼
Amazon has agreed to fund a hardline British charity whose leading ideologue supports child marriage, female genital mutilation and stoning people to death for adultery.
Under its charitable programme, the internet giant will make donations to the London-based group whenever its supporters buy products.
The Muslim Research and Development Foundation (MRDF) has been described by the government’s counter-extremism commissioner, Sara Khan, as “the main Salafist organisation in the UK”.
Its founder and former chairman is Haitham al-Haddad, 52, a Saudi-born Islamic scholar whose beliefs led him to be labelled “one of the most dangerous men in Britain” by the head of the counter-extremism Quilliam Foundation.
