Purchased a relic item from the Civil War recently and want to display it. I thought a small brass plaque would go well with it stating where it was recovered.

I can order from several places online, but found out you can from Amazon as well. The size I'm going to get is 1" x 3" and Amazon is about 1/3 the price. Great right? Not so fast.

They will not let me use the word Confederate. Not in any way. But type in f*ck you, douchebag, c*cksucker, etc. and those are just fine for use in your personalized brass plaque. Don't believe me? Try it for yourself.

I posed the question to a vendor and they replied that they do not set the rules on words that are approved. Amazon does.

It's not the money difference (although saving $15 would be nice). It's the ridiculous political correctness bullshit. Can't refer to our Southern history, but if I want a plaque saying fuck you you cocksucking douchebag...well that's perfectly fine.

Maybe I should order a plaque with that on it and send it to Jeff Bezos?

Can't you just deal directly with manufacturer/vendor?
or find some one local?

yes, but you're missing the point. I'll get the plaque made elsewhere. My point is "Confederate" is more obscene to Amazon than the foulest words.

I think the OP was just referring to custom engraving.

I went in and tried getting custom engraving with Confederacy and had no problem.

Here's the URL I used: https://www.amazon.com/Engrave...Z0NsaWNrPXRydWU&th=1

Bezos, Amazon, WaPo, all fucking leftists. That's why they will never get dime from me, even if they were the last vendor on earth.
