Walmart has jumped on the “Dump the Confederate Flag it’s Racist” movement with every politician you can find. You can’t buy a Confederate Battle Flag (it’s not the “Confederate Flag”) at Walmart any more.
The politically correct, the left in general will celebrate this as a victory because, as we all know, only rednecks shop at Walmart.
“We never want to offend anyone with the products that we offer,” Walmart spokesman Brian Nick said in an emailed statement. “We have taken steps to remove all items promoting the confederate flag from our assortment — whether in our stores or on our web site.”
Sigh. We personally don’t care what they sell, but we find the highlighted part of that statement a tad too much to bear. In fact, it’s offensive.
Speaking of “offensive” – and we will note that are seriously offended by this one – Walmart sells posters and other merchandise that glorifies a man who was a butcher, and a racist butcher to boot.
Yep, Che. The ignorant glorify him as a “revolutionary” but he was nothing of the sort. He was a serial murderer put to work by the Communists, just a useful tool who they empowered to do what he loved doing.
And Che was an unrepentant racist. Here’s what he had to say about blacks .
“The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing, have seen their territory invaded by a new kind of slave: the Portuguese.”
“The Negro is indolent and lazy, and spends his money on frivolities, whereas
the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent.”
Che was just the kind of guy you’d expect a Progressive to love. He banned music and burned books. He was a virulent anti-Semite. He oversaw execution squads that murdered indiscriminately. And he was in charge of a system that imprisoned and killed homosexuals for the crime of homosexuality.
Sound a lot like Barack Obama’s new favorites, the Mullahs in Tehran.
Anyway, here’s a screen shot from 10 seconds ago of Walmart’s inventory.
There’s lots more, but you get the idea. There are 16 pages of items at 20 per page of merchandise featuring this racist murderer.
Maybe we should contact Mr. Nick. We really do find this offensive.
