Covfefe Coffee Banned From Amazon Ads For American Flag

Amazon Bans American Flag

A Pro-Trump coffee brand has been prohibited from advertising with Amazon after using the American flag and the words “No Nonsense” and “No BS” on their advertisements.

Covfefe Coffee, inspired by the famous covfefe tweet from President Donald Trump, and made famous by conservatives including Laura Loomer, Jack Posobiec, and Ben Garrison, had its Amazon ads pulled due to the use of the American flag.

Amazon considers use of the flag a violation of its rules against advocating political parties, candidates, or causes.

After speaking to Big League Politics, Covfefe Coffee provided several emails showing Amazon describe the American flag as “not appropriate for advertising,” with one Amazon employee adding that he does not “anticipate when these products will be eligible for advertising in the near future,” indicating that this is not a new or temporary policy for the online retail giant.

In a followup email, another Amazon employee specifically told Covfefe Coffee they would need to “remove the [American] flag from the product image” and remove the words “No Nonsense” and “No BS” from the advertisements.

After weighing the potential cost to the business if were to disagree with Amazon’s decision to prohibit the American flag, Covfefe Coffee complied with Amazon’s demands. However, even after removing the American flag and the offending phrases from his ads, Amazon has been unwilling to advertise the pro-Trump coffee brand.

Covfefe Coffee was also banned from Facebook and Instagram advertising due to their nebulous new rules against political advertising.

Due to fears of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, Facebook now worries the coffee brand may be a political organization, and its advertisements considered donations to President Trump at best, or a scary Russian hacker at worst.

Covfefe Coffee told Big League Politics that its response to this type of Big Tech censorship would be work directly with content creators, and cited their promotions with Loomer, Posobiec and Garrison, as well as others with Scott Adams, Joy Villa, and Brandon Straka.

SHAME: Democrats Are Blocking Stimulus Legislation That Includes Second $1,200 TrumpBux Check

Published

on

Democrats in Congress are blocking a bipartisan $1.5 trillion stimulus package that includes a second round of $1,200 TrumpBux payments to Americans.

Leading House Democrats are saying the bill isn’t big enough of a giveaway, but they favor stimulus measures that would divert funds away from the pockets of everyday Americans to institutions. They want to bail out Democrat state and local governments, and are willing to block TrumpBux payments to Americans if they aren’t allowed to.

The House passed a $3.4 trillion stimulus package in May that was shot down by Senate Republicans. The latest $1.4 stimulus legislation has been presented as a compromise, after House Democrats in turn rejected a thin $500 billion stimulus package proposed by Republicans last week. That package did not include a second round of $1,200 payments, and Republicans are now willing to sign off on another TrumpBux payment in order to pass another round of stimulus.

The $1.5 trillion stimulus legislation emerged from the Problem Solvers Caucus, a group of 25 Republicans and 25 Democrats who emphasize bipartisanship and common ground. Aside from TrumpBux 2, it features $500 billion for cities and states, unemployment insurance of $600 a week, increased SNAP benefits and rental assistance.

Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi are claiming the legislation doesn’t go far enough and that it “leaves too many needs unmet.”

Pelosi and House Democrats are insisting that Congress will remain in session until a second stimulus agreement is met, but in rejecting the Problem Solvers Caucus legislation they’re already shown they’re not open to a generous compromise.

Try asking everyday working Americans of all stripes and walks of life if they’re willing to wait or even go without a second $1,200 stimulus payment in order to provide a bigger bailout to states and cities that already engage in questionable budgetary practices to begin with. The Democrats are resolutely determined to avoid making people the priority in  a stimulus package, and will block stimulus legislation to do so.
