File this under "We are paranoid for a reason"

Well, Michelle Malkin points to a message board for Borders Book store employees and their discussion on Unfit For Command

One thing they wrote made me chuckle.

At the expense of sounding like I'm passing judgement, conservative types seem to fall prey to these type of conspiracy theories a little too easily. Now the democrats are in league with the nations bookstores and publishers and conspire to keep dangerous books out of the hands of inquiring readers..... Come on.

What about all the "liberal types" who fall prey to every sort of conspiracy theory when it comes to George Bush. There was war for oil, plan to lower price of oil by being in bed with the Saudi royal family, and then there was the freak show that is Fahrenheit 9/11.

If you want proof that we are indeed concerned (they call it paranoid) for a reason, read this post.

You guys don't actually HAVE to sell the thing!

Just "carelessly" hide the boxes, "accidentally" drop them off pallets, "forget" to stock the ones you have, and then suggest a nice Al Franken or Micheal Moore book as a substitute. Borders wants those recommends, remember?

I don't care if these Neandertals (sic) in fancy suits get mad at me, they aren't regular customers anyway. Other than "Left Behind" books, they don't read. Anything you can do to make them feel unwelcome is only fair. They are the people pushing retailers to cut costs, don't forget. And they would censor your speech, your books, your music in a heartbeat, so give them a taste of it!

Don't get mad, get even!

These pointy headed bookstore types are a walking ironic display. They saw conservatives are paranoid because we believe that the Borders employees don't want the book sold while openly talking about hating the book and trying to avoid selling it in their discussion board.
