A nationwide boycott of eBay is protesting eBay's hypocrisy regarding Nazi items that glorify Nazism. Ebay abets sales of Nazi stamps and coins, for example. eBay's Nazi stamps and coins show offensive items that were made by Nazis to glorify Nazism, Hitler, hatred & racism. Hypocritically, eBay banned the sale of a historic photograph of the USA's original Pledge of Allegiance (which was the origin of the Nazi salute) while allowing Nazi stamps that show the Nazi flag saluted.

A nationwide boycott of eBay is protesting eBay's hypocrisy regarding Nazi items that glorify Nazism. Nazi items that glorify Nazism are allowed on eBay for auction. Ebay abets sales of Nazi stamps and coins, for example, and openly admits it in written policies. Any review of eBay's Nazi stamps and coins shows that they are offensive items that were made by Nazis to glorify Nazism, Hitler, hatred, violence, racism and religious intolerance.
Ebay banned the sale of a historic photograph of the original Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of the USA. The ban was stark hypocrisy compared to eBay's aid for Nazi stamps and coins. Many Nazi stamps bear the Nazi flag being saluted, and eBay abets the sale of those Nazi stamps. In the ban of America's flag heritage, Ebay cited it's policy against other "Nazi" items, believe it or not! The eye-popping eBay letter and the photo are at http://rexcurry.net/ebay-sucks.html
EBay claims that it "will deem inappropriate and remove listings of items whose primary value is that they are from or promote organizations that glorify hatred, violence, racial or religious intolerance, such as the Aryan Nation, Hitler Youth, Nazis, neo-Nazis, etc." That is a glaring contradiction of the special exception that Ebay makes for Nazi items that glorify Nazism.
A review of Nazi items on eBay suggests that eBay's removal of items to which eBay objects is inconsistent or selective. In addition to Nazi items that eBay policy openly abets, there appear to be many items that violate ebay's remaining polices, and many of those items are not removed.
At the same time that eBay aids Nazi items that glorify Nazis, Ebay also removes items that denounce Nazism. Thus, whether eBay intends the outcome or not, eBay's behavior gives the appearance that eBay is included in "organizations that glorify hatred, violence, racial or religious intolerance, such as the Aryan Nation, Hitler Youth, Nazis, neo-Nazis, etc." Ebay's Nazi-like conduct leaves the appearance that eBay is an organization that removes and censors opposition to Nazism.
Even more bizarre is that Ebay has removed items that denounce Nazism and then eBay claimed in canned emails that the items that denounced Nazism "violated eBay's Hateful or Discriminatory policy..." (sic).
Ebay's self-confessed "hateful or discriminatory policy" is one of many reasons why Ebay and its "hateful or discriminatory policy" of hypocrisy and its outrageous fees are being replaced by competitors (e.g. Yahoo Auctions - which post auctions free of charge).
Questions raised by Ebay's ban of a historic US flag photo include the following (and any answers are not clear from Ebay's letter):
Is Ebay acknowledging that the USA's original pledge of allegiance (which used a straight-arm salute) was the origin of the Nazi salute? That historic discovery was exposed by the historian Rex Curry.
Does Ebay believe that historic photographs of America's original pledge violate laws in countries that ban Nazi depictions? (Selling or displaying Nazi artifacts is illegal in France. Germany is similar. In other words, is the U.S. pledge a Nazi artifact? Is it illegal to display / sell historic photographs of the original USA pledge in France and/or Germany?)
Ebay's "hateful or discriminatory policy" evinces hatefulness for liberty and it shows eBay's discrimination against Americans in order to adopt un-American and authoritarian behavior in other countries.
Ebay recently suspended a seller who had a five year history on ebay and a 100% positive rating by customers. Ebay suspended the seller in order to ban the sale of a book criticizing Adolf Hitler's bizarre signature. The book can be found at http://rexcurry.net and in web searches for the historian Rex Curry. Ebay acted unilaterally and without any complaint from any of its customers. Why did eBay do that?
Most people have never seen Adolf Hitler's bizarre signature and it seems that Ebay intends to keep it that way, and keep its customers in the dark and ignorant.
Another recent disturbing act of suppression of historical truths on ebay involved an eBay employee who goes by the name "Shea" and who tries to remain semi-anonymous on eBay while also refusing to converse or answer questions about his, or eBay's, policies. There have been other incidences in which eBay has tried to suppress America's heritage concerning the pledge of allegiance, including actions of the "Community Watch Team with eBay Trust & Safety." A search of the internet shows Shea otherwise identified as acting on behalf of Bill Cobb of ebay. It is not clear what relationship there is between Shea and Oscar or Kimbal or Jake or Murphie who are also identified on the internet as acting on behalf of Bill Cobb and Community Watch Team at eBay Trust & Safety.
The banned book about Hitler's signature should not have been banned because Ebay's policy specifically allows books about historical information from WWII and information criticizing Nazis. Ebay policy also specifically allows the book as a War documentary or about victims of war or violence.
Ebay's "hateful or discriminatory policy" evinces hatefulness for the US Constitution and discrimination against the First Amendment right of Free Speech.
When asked for a comment, customer service at eBay clammed up. Ebay customer service is notoriously bad, and the eBay website seems designed to prevent emailing, or phone calls to eBay. Ebay's website is designed to force customers to use webpage forms that can then be easily ignored and prevent customers from complaining to higher-ups about Ebay employees who are rude, hateful, disciminatory and who need to be fired before they destroy eBay. Customers who are victimized by eBay are shut-out and have no alternative but to take complaints public.
Whether eBay customer service intended it or not, the effect of the hateful and discriminatory policies at eBay is to cover-up for Nazism, racism, aryanism and totalitarianism. Ebay risks leaving the appearance of trying to rehabilitate Nazism, racism and Aryanism by suppressing critics of those horrid dogmas.
That is why eBay is becoming a bad place to do business and why eBay's competition is growing fast.
