Confederate Flag Sales Up At Amazon by 3,260 Percent

UPDATE: Numbers pulled later in the day show an increase of 3,620 percent, according to CBS. Amazon has since banned the sale of Confederate flag merchandise.

There is a run on Confederate flags underway at Amazon.com, after a media outcry successfully drove South Carolina leaders to attempt to remove the controversial southern banner from the state capitol grounds.

According to the Amazon “Movers and Shakers” sales rankings in the past 24 hours in Patio, Lawn, & Garden merchandise, the flag is the top three slots. One 3×5 flag selling for $3.95 is up 2,305 percent, moving from a sales ranking of 914 to 38.

According to Amazon, “Movers & Shakers” identifies the biggest gainers in sales rank compared to twenty-four hours ago.

The flag is also in the number one and number two best seller items in outdoor flags and banners.
