AIM Still Proudly Selling Confederate Flag Stuff
Topic: Accuracy in Media

The Media Research Center may have finally gotten around to deciding the Confederate flag is a bad thing, but its ConWeb media-watchdog compadres at Accuracy in Media are still enthusiastic supporters of the Confederacy.

In a June 23 tweet noting that Amazon has banned sales of the Confederate flag on its website, AIM chairman Don Irvine added, "Check out" The same day, AIM's main Twitter feed declared, "We are selling Confederate Battle Flag Ties at our AIM Store so check it out." Other AIM tweets similarly promoted the AIM Store's Confederate wares.

And indeed, the AIM store does have a small selection of Confederate wares: a battle flag of unspecified size, a "desk flag," and a Confederate flag necktie.


All are described as being on sale, but the necktie is particularly discounted, from a claimed "retail price" of $12.95 to $1.99.

Is AIM a group of proud Confederates, or is it trying to take advantage of the news cycle to unload some slow-moving merchandise? Maybe Don Irvine will tell us...
