Walmart Issues Response to Furious Customers Over ‘Impeach 45’ Anti-Trump Clothes

Published

on

Earlier this week, it was discovered that the Walmart website was selling merchandise with the slogan “Impeach 45” on it, a clear reference to the movement spreading across the country that wants to see President Trump booted from office.

This, as you might imagine, did not at all sit well with folks who support the president, many of whom launched a #BoycottWalmart campaign to attempt to force the company to address the issue and remove the clothing from its website.

Well, the retail giant has finally broken their silence over the ordeal, and this is what they had to say.

The short-lived online boycott campaign got going on Tuesday when some Trump fans noticed a number of clothing items calling for the impeachment of the president. A total of three companies were reportedly selling impeachment-themed clothing with around two dozen anti-Trump items available in total. Students for Trump chair Ryan Fournier was one of the first to point out the clothes:

While some Trump fans promoted the boycott effort, some anti-boycott conservatives pushed back against the effort. But the furor online was enough to get Walmart’s attention. By the end of the day, the company had pulled all the “Impeach 45” items.

Walmart also issued an explanation for how the items appeared on their site and why they chose to pull them. “These items were sold by third party sellers on our open marketplace, and were not offered directly by Walmart,” a company spokesman said. “We’re removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies.”

Former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale called off the dogs after Walmart’s decision Tuesday. “No need to boycott. @Walmart has assured me that the merchandise will be down as soon as possible,” he tweeted. “It was not deliberate. Thank you @Walmart for doing the right thing!”

This seems to be one of the areas where conservatives are inconsistent in the application of their own worldview and first principles. Walmart is a private business, which means they are allowed to sell whatever they want, whether we the consumer like the products they offer or not.

On top of that, the store offered MAGA merchandise too, so it’s clear this wasn’t simply about silencing conservative voices. It was a goofy product aimed at goofy leftists. Everyone was well represented.

Conservatives would throw a fit, just like folks on the left, if Walmart had removed anti-Obama clothing from their website during his administration. They’d be furious. This is inconsistency.

If we want to convince hearts and minds around the country conservative thought is the truth and best ideological system for governing a society, you have to be consistent in the application of your principles. We must stop condemning certain actions  the left uses and then gleefully employing the same tactics ourselves.

That’s not how winning is done.

High school has to be tough for kids these days. Well, for kids who lean conservative. For liberal kids, life is a breeze. Just slam President Trump and the Republican Party and you’re golden. Check out what recently happened in North Carolina… From Daily Wire: On Monday, cheerleaders from a North Carolina high school were put on probation for the remainder of the football season for posing with a Trump 2020 banner before a football game on August 30. The North Stanly High School cheerleading squad was placed on probation by the #NCHSAA for posing with a #Trump banner before a game. Officials say all #NC schools have a policy against displaying political signs. https://twitter.com/WCCBCharlotte/status/1173982479574851584?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173982479574851584&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F51878%2Fhigh-school-cheerleaders-put-probation-posing-hank-berrien Here’s the photo: The photo was posted on Facebook, prompting some commenters to take issue; one wrote, “Why in the world would the school board allow this to happen. I am sad and very disappointed with NS. This is a High School football game, not a political rally. Shame on them,” as The Daily Mail noted. NCHSAA Commissioner Que Tucker told McClatchy news group that probation is not punishment, but rather, “It serves as a notice of behavior or action that is against NCHSAA Handbook Policy or contrary to expectations of sportsmanship and proper behavior,” according to the Charlotte Observer. She also said, “One of the rules we have is that every contest should be conducted in a wholesome, athletic environment. We take that to mean that it’s in an environment where good sportsmanship is shown, where people feel safe…that respect for all people participating is being shown,” according to thesnaponline.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid Argues That ‘Wealthy, White Christians’ Will Use Apartheid Tactics to Keep Power

Such a good Democrat, isn’t she?

MSNBC’s Joy Reid is a trip. Then again, she’s simply being a good Democrat. President Trump recently blasted the far-left TV host for being a far-left TV host…and he went IN! LOOK: Who the hell is Joy-Ann Reid? Never met her, she knows ZERO about me, has NO talent, and truly doesn’t have the “it” factor needed for success in showbiz. Had a bad reputation, and now works for the Comcast/NBC losers making up phony stories about me. Low Ratings. Fake News! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1172858577951821825?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1172858577951821825&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.washingtonexaminer.com%2Fnews%2Fjoy-reid-claims-wealthy-white-christian-americans-will-implement-apartheid-tactics And here comes Ried with the blabbering nonsense… From Washington Examiner: MSNBC host Joy Reid warned at an event for the American Federation of Teachers union that white Christian Americans will cling to power with tactics that echo South African apartheid. Reid said, “No country is an eternal democracy. Democracy is extremely fragile, and multiracial democracy is so fragile, we’re practically the only one that’s pulled it off. This is a very difficult thing to maintain. And when you have a very determined minority, in this case wealthy white men and wealthy, white Christian men and Christian Americans who are of the fundamentalist variety, who are very clear that no matter what happens, if they have to pull the South Africa model to maintain power forever, they will do it. And they’re not afraid of it, and they’re increasingly open about it, and Donald Trump is merely the avatar for this. He didn’t create it, he simply benefited from it.” She added, “And I think the sooner that the majority, the actual numerical majority in this country figures that out and stop treating these elections as just foregone conclusions that you can fix it with just a simple election and that it will be free and fair, the sooner that we will wake up and actually have…
