On Monday, WND’s Jerome Corsi reported that Costco Wholesale, the second-largest retailer in the country, decided to pull all copies of Dinesh D’Souza’s best-selling book, “America: Imagine a World Without Her,” from its shelves. The move sparked anger from a number of people who let Costco know in no uncertain terms that they would no longer do business with the company.

“GOODBYE COSTCO,” one person said on the company’s Facebook page Tuesday morning. “To me, your company is UN-AMERICAN.”

“This is America and you have the right to conduct your business as YOU see fit,” another person added. “I the CONSUMER have the right to shop where I see fit. I WILL NOT be shopping at Costco anymore. Yeah, that’s at least 300 dollars a month you will not be seeing. Let Freedom Ring.”

“Costco Members: Don’t simply stop shopping there. Call and ask for a refund of your membership,” said another visitor to the page.

Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza called Costco’s decision to pull his best-selling book off its shelves this month “bizarre” and credited the ensuing social media outcry with causing the wholesaler to restock “America: Imagine the World Without Her.”

“The whole thing was very bizarre,” he said in an interview on the One America News Network Wednesday, noting his longtime relationship with Costco.

He said the decision was particularly shocking when Costco officials told him they were “clearing out books that don’t sell.”

Mr. D’Souza’s book — which soared to No. 1 on after the Costco debacle — was ranked No. 40 when it was pulled. In contrast, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s latest book, “Hard Choices,” was ranked No. 100 on Amazon, and several other books sold by Costco had far lower rankings, Mr. D’Souza said.
