Walmart Becomes First Store To Remove All Confederate Flag Merchandise

Walmart Becomes The First Store To Remove All Confederate Flag Merchandise



Walmart is leading the nation by announcing it will remove all Confederate flag merchandise from its stores, according to a scoop by CNN.

CNN politics reporter MJ Lee tweeted the statement from Walmart spokesman Brian Nick:

“We never want to offend anyone with the products that we offer. We have taken steps to remove all items promoting the confederate flag from our assortment — whether in our stores or on our web site. We have a process in place to help lead us to the right decisions when it comes to the merchandise we sell. Still, at times, items make their way into our assortment improperly — this is one of those instances.”

CNN reached out to Amazon & eBay, which MJ Lee says both sell various forms of Confederate flag merchandise, but they haven’t responded.

On CNN, Lee writes, “The announcement is the latest indication that the flag, a symbol of the slave-holding South, has become toxic in the aftermath of a shooting last week at a historic African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina.”

This is an interesting move by a company that is desperately trying to revamp its public image. First they raised wages finally and now they are taking a lead on a moral and ethical issue that is the cause of deep pain for many in this country.

This is a big win for the anti-hate side, because Walmart is the world’s largest retailer, with over 11,100 stores in 27 countries. With Walmart removing merchandise with the Confederate flag on it, the days of mass public denial and pretending it is not a hate symbol are coming to a close.

And so expands the uneducated class. This is why the U.S. needs a qualification to vote. The founders understood that.

It's time for you to crawl out out the 18th century jimmyb. The founders never meant for this nation to remain one that never progressed in regard to the liberty and equality of it's citizens. Stop using their antiquated concepts that were in fact due to their time, as excuses to keep other people from having the same liberties as straight white men.

I still hold out hope that, if the SC disagrees with JamesB's legal opinion, he will accept the ruling once the emotions wear off. It would be nice if he tips his hat to Nwolfe but Nwolfe shouldn't spike the football either.

Why don't you provide one piece of evidence regarding one founder who espoused eliminating the founding principles. Name one person and one statement.

What concepts are you referencing? You have no clue because you have no clue the one single purpose that we have a written Constitution.

You also have no clue what the liberty means in the context of the Constitution.

Just curious. In your mind what were the founding principles?

States rights are paramount, only landowners should vote and the Supreme Court should not be an activist court. In other words, liberty is only for rich white men.
