Pusillanimous Dhimmi Talk at Borders and Waldenbooks

You probably heard. Borders and Waldenbooks have decided not to carry the May issue of Free Inquiry because it has 4 of the MockingMo cartoons in that issue with commentary.

In the SF Gate article, Borders, Waldenbooks Won't Carry Magazine, contrast Free Inquiry's Mr. Kurtz to the dhimmi spokeswoman Bingham:

"What is at stake is the precious right of freedom of expression," said Paul Kurtz, editor-in-chief of Free Inquiry [the banned magazine]. "Cartoons often provide an important form of political satire ... To refuse to distribute a publication because of fear of vigilante violence is to undermine freedom of press — so vital for our democracy."


Bingham [Borders spokeswoman] said the decision was made before the magazine arrived at the company's stores. Borders Group, based in Ann Arbor, Mich., operates more than 475 Borders and 650 Waldenbooks stores in the United States, though not all regularly carry the magazine.


"We absolutely respect our customers' right to choose what they wish to read and buy and we support the First Amendment," Bingham said. "And we absolutely support the rights of Free Inquiry to publish the cartoons. We've just chosen not to carry this particular issue in our stores."


Please, is that not the most pusillanimous, cringing piece of crap you have ever read?

Why can't they just wrap it in brown paper, and put it behind the cashier, right up there with Playboy?
