Tumwater, Washington Costco has received its first shipment of Dinesh D’Souza’s controversial new book, America: Imagine A World Without Her.
Supplies were quickly dwindling as shoppers stopped to chat with each other about the book and newly released movie of the same name. Some customers left the checkout line after spotting the book in neighboring carts, to get their own copy.
Tumwater borders the state capital of Olympia, and is a strongly Democratic area. It is sixty miles southwest of Costco’s corporate headquarters in Issaquah.
Costco Pulled Book, Then Quickly Reversed After Grassroots Outcry
Costco pulled America from its stores on July 7. An immediate customer outcry ensued. Costco was flooded with phone calls, and many posted their reactions on social media.
D’Souza responded that Costco’s decision to pull America was political. Costco’s founder has been a strong supporter and fundraiser for President Obama.
Costco responded that they were simply following their corporate policy, which was to pull low selling books. Costco stated that they would listen to their customers, and stock D’Souza’s America in their stores.
America was Amazon.com’s number one best seller at the time.
A sampling of books for sale at the Tumwater Costco on July 9 showed many were extremely low sellers through Amazon.com.
D’Souza posted that information on his webpage, to back up his statements about Costco’s decision being political, rather than financial.
New Difficulties with Google and YouTube
Meanwhile, D’Souza’s America movie listing is not showing up properly in Google searches.
“I certainly hope this is not intentional. But how long does it take a technical company to fix a technical problem?”, D’Souza told FOX411. “We’re trying to be patient, but this is making it harder for people to get accurate information about the film.”
As a further difficulty, YouTube videos on D’Souza’s movie page are showing up as “private,” and not viewable. YouTube is owned by Google.
