I shop at WalMart because it’s convenient. I have even taken a little pleasure in shopping there because the self-imagined elite take pleasure in insulting people that shop there, because surely no one of consequence, no one of superior intellect and morality, would ever shop at WalMart, where everyone is toothless, smelly, stupid, and routinely has sex with farm animals and close relatives.
But they have nothing there I cannot get elsewhere, often at the same or lower prices, and if WalMart sufficiently angers me, I’m more than happy to pay a bit more to get what I need. Congratulations WalMart, for untold numbers of honest Americans, you’ve pulled it off. Senator Josh Hawley announced he’d object to electoral fraud on January 6th, which forces the Senate to debate the issue, something a great many Republican cowards would rather not do. Hawley is the first Senator to announce his objections; several members of the House have already announced theirs.
In response, WalMart fired back a snotty reply, a reply that was soon disappeared, but not before Hawley replied (above). Hawley also fired off this retort:
WalMart tried a walkback:
Notice they did not say it was wrong, and stupid, to comment on politics at all. The didn’t make plain their intention and policy to remain non-partisan. In other words, they’re upset they said what they really thought and got caught, not that they did something no rational business should do. Plenty of others are unimpressed:
This is a particularly good idea, and indicative of a widely shared attitude to which WalMart would be wise to pay attention:
This one really must have left a mark:
Here’s my response to WalMart: what the hell do you think you’re doing?! Do you think the majority of your customers are the kind of cruel Leftists that insult your corporation, your customers, and attack you at every turn for the wages you pay and your other corporate policies? Do you think sucking up to the politics of the kind of people that hate you and your customers, that would delight in wiping you entirely out of the American marketplace, is a smart business move? Do you think playing politics at all is a smart business move?
It’s going to be a long, long time before I set foot in another of your stores, if ever. If you want to serve all Americans, you can’t afford to insult half of them, and actually, most of your customers. You may want to decide whether you want to be in business, or politics:
I suspect Mr. Sam, as he was known, would do rather more than that.
