This is a German Economic Decision not US Publishing Decision

Submitted by Rick, Aug 22, 2008 04:23

Random House is owned by the German Bertlesmann corporation. Bertlesmann is a huge conglomerate and part of the German corporate establishment. I would guess the Saudis or someone similar told the German govt, they did not want this book to come out and Bertlesmann responded like any good German moneymaker and said yes. Germany makes a great deal of money trading with the Arab world since they long lost the abiity to compete in most western markets due to their high labor and social costs. But they compete very well selling their products to the Arabs, especially all that high end infrastructure. Bertlesmann understood that it was stupid to tick off the golden goose by publishing this book, angering their fellow German corporate and govt oligarchs. IMHO.

Henceforth, Random House will not be the recipient of any funds of mine. I cannot support a business that is so un-American.


Caving In

Another company caving in to the demands of radical Islam...Dhimmitude. Random House is making a very big mistake and letting it be known that radical Islam can have an effect on our freedoms and choices.

Sooner or later , we in the USA , will have to stand up and fight , on our own soil . We do not dare allow our officials , teachers , professors , critics and the like to have their free-speech rights abridged ....but we are allowing OUT OF FEAR , an intolerant supremacist cult to accomplish this in our ownback yard .

We will have to growa back-bone , and sooner than anyone thinks .


Self-Censure by publisher

Another footstep on the path toward shariah in America. It is despicable. This is the reason our soldiers and sailors in harm's way are fighting and sacrificing life and limb protecting our liberty to allow the free flow of ideas, opinions, truth and information to continue always and evermore. Weaseling out by this publisher is an insult to any man or woman who has ever served in the US Armed Forces. It is not the American way by any stretch. It is wrong. Wake up America! We can lose our freedom by allowing evil under the guise of so-called discrimination to prevail.
