Wal-Mart Gives Me Another Reason Not To Shop There

I’m not a Confederate Flag apologist; I don’t have any particular attachment to it. The whining leftist weenie censorship element in our country has done a good job of convincing the ignorant, unwashed masses that it’s a symbol of racism, a term which itself is a semantic satiation any more.

But in reality, the Confederate States of America were formed in response to a repressive, bullying federal government that blatantly overstepped its Constitutional boundaries in direct violation to the 10th Amendment. Sort of like the repressive, bullying federal government does today.

The difference was, the Confederates believed enough in their rights to stand up to the repressive, bullying federal government and its boundaries-trashing president. I bet Lincoln wishes he could’ve distracted the unwashed masses with ESPN back then while he blatantly disregarded the Constitution. Obama doesn’t know how good he’s got it.

And while the federal government has continued to violate, undermine, and actively destroy our Constitutional freedom, it’s also done its damnedest to vilify those who stood up for theirs, to ensure that no one tries it again. And it seems to be working.

We live in a country so full of ignorance that the majority have no idea what’s going on. They’re the product of a public school education, which means they’ve been taught by the very same federal government whose sole purpose is self-preservation. And that ignorance is pervasive and spreading.

Case in point:

A man in Louisiana wants a Confederate flag on a cake. Wal-Mart refuses. So he goes in the next day and asks for a cake with the ISIS battle flag on it. Guess what?

Yep.

Per Wal-Mart policy, it’s perfectly acceptable to decorate a cake with the symbol of a group that beheads people, burns them alive, and who knows what other atrocities they’ve committed that the liberal leftist awestruck media hasn’t gleefully reported. But it’s not okay to put the Confederate flag on a cake.

I know the company has issued a pro forma apology to the man, lest those it’s fleecing think less of the company while it engages in its campaign of censorship. But even putting aside the empty words and censorship they’re engaging in, there are a couple of problems that I can see. The first, is that this “talented bakery associate” was so ignorant that he or she had no idea what this man was asking. Secondly, the company thinks this is acceptable and condemned the customer for probing Wal-Mart’s loyalties. This speaks volumes about where the company places its values.

And this is indicative of what’s wrong with Wal-Mart. I haven’t done my shopping at Wal-Mart in five or six years at least. I quit going there because I got tired of the dirty, disgusting stores, the entirely discourteous, clueless, and apathetic staff, and most of the rest of the other people there. In short, I got tired of dealing with these sorts of “talented associates” and this sort of corporate dogma. And if I had never spent another dime in Wal-Mart, it wouldn’t have hurt my feelings.

While it was an In-A-Pinch option before, I’d rather do without than spend any of my money at Wal-Mart ever again. I think the company’s demonstrated where its loyalty lay. Wal-Mart has every right to be pro-ISIS, pro-censorship, pro-political correctness, and pro-ignorance (pardon the redundancy of the last three; I’m aware they are all the same thing). But by not shopping there, none of my money will find its way via the Wal-Mart Avenue to ISIS’s coffers.

    I tend to have more negative experiences at Sino Mart than good ones, and these negatives occur on successive occasions. This tells me that it’s deeply embedded in the corporate structure of Sino Mart to make buying there unpleasant. My attitude toward Sino Mart is tempered by the fact that I had nothing but negative encounters with their incompetent and inert staff as a soda vendor for Coke and Pepsi. Their treatment of me at the back door during deliveries showed their true colors: They crap on people because they’re Sino Mart and they can! I only go there when I need to. Often, I choose to spend more at Safeway just so I don’t have to go to Sino Mart. When I’m in a really good mood I don’t go to Sino Mart because I don’t want to ruin it. It was with glee I read recently that there was panic in Bentonville as the corporate bureaucrats learned that Family Dollar, Dollar Tree, and Dollar General were kicking their bloated butts in the marketplace! Sino Mart has forgotten that someone else can do to them what Sam Walton did to Ben Franklin stores. During the ’80s, Sears was a retail and financial giant, and now they had to hook up with K-Mart (of all places) just to stay in business. So we know it CAN happen with a retail giant that is a household name. That was only 30 years ago. I think within our lifetime we’re going to see Sino Mart slide financially. By the time their incompetent, inert staff realizes that customer service needs to be improved, it will be too late! I will not weep tears for the demise of a retail bureaucracy, that’s for sure! Then all their ex-employees can try to crap on others in the real world to see if they can get away with it.

      Indeed. I, also, would rather pay more elsewhere just so I don’t have to go to Wal-Mart. I’d even prefer a *gasp* Union Shop to the Satan’s Anus that is Wal-Mart.
