Dear ETSY and John Silverman,

I rarely complain about anything and I'm not the type of person who is activist or interested in garnering attention. I'm just a recent retiree who has lived his entire life in LA Ca., who is deeply concerned about the future and wellbeing of my country. I am well aware of the 1st Amendment implications of this request/complaint and in no way wish to promote violating anyone's rights. However, I also realize if ETSY chooses not to distribute a particular book, they (you) are not forced or compelled to do it.

As soon as I learned about the details of the book, I felt very compelled to write. If you weren't already aware, this book is pure evil. Books like this are explicitly created as propaganda tools for the CCP and other evil doers. It teaches American citizens to hate their own country and is supported by the Chinese Communist Party! The material in this book is absolutely NOT TRUE!! Every argument/essay can be easily proven untrue by irrefutable FACTS! The fact that this book is fact-less helps to prove my point.

It is my strong opinion, along with thousands of other Americans, that this book, and others like it, are intended to weaken American pride which in turn, over time, lessons the overall physical, social, emotional and intellectual strength of American men and women. Importantly, the book is extremely detrimental because in order to maintain strength and peace, and to win any future wars, it is imperative that American men remain strong, confident and proud as warriors. This book contains material meant to foster men with just the opposite characteristics.

Recent events and current political climate has clearly shown that the CCP, with the support of many hundreds of leading democrats, have been working for decades to sabotage America and win what I call a "silent war against America."

If you really think about it, this book is just another example of China and the left's ongoing effort to pit Americans against each other, while at the same time, weakening our ability to defend ourselves politically, financially, and socially. Therefore, by choosing to distribute books like this, ETSY is contributing to ongoing and relentless attacks on our country while playing right into the CCP's evil narrative. I'm simply asking you to STOP contributing to the problem.

If ETSY is truly a company that respects America and wants to continue to thrive with the American public, then you should immediately cease distributing this disgusting, racists book.

Thanks for listening.
