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.

Man Arrested for Rape Is Let Out of Jail Over COVID-19, Then Murders the Woman He Raped

Still want to let criminals out?

Democrat policies made this unfortunate story possible. Liberal “leaders” won’t take any of the blame, though. Sure, the only person to commit a criminal act was Ibrahim Bouaichi, but he shouldn’t have been released from jail in the first place. Are Dems still cool with freeing bad people? From TDW: A Maryland man being held in a Virginia prison on rape charges was released over coronavirus concerns, then allegedly murdered his accuser, according to police. Police tracked down and found Ibrahim Bouaichi, 33, in Prince George’s County, Maryland, on Wednesday. Authorities sought Bouaichi in connection with the death of Karla Dominguez, who had accused Bouaichi of rape and testified against him in October, according to The Washington Post. CONTINUED: When police located Bouaichi, he fled in his car until he crashed. Police moving to arrest him found that he had apparently shot himself. Bouaichi remained in critical condition on Thursday. Partly on Dominguez’s testimony, Bouaichi was indicted on five felony charges of rape, sodomy, strangulation, abduction, and burglary. Bouaichi was held without bail in an Alexandria prison facility until April 9, when Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins ordered his release on a $25,000 bond.

Busted.

If Rashida Tlaib was a Republican and got caught illegal distributing funds from a campaign, there would be calls for her immediate resignation. But she’s a Democrat – so it’s all good! From Fox News: Rep. Rashida Tlaib has been ordered to repay $10,800 to her campaign committee to account for the salary she had paid herself from her campaign coffers after she had been elected to Congress in 2018. The bipartisan House Ethics Committee found the Michigan Democrat’s violation “was one of bad timing and not ill intent.” The committee ordered her to pay $10,800 of the $17,500 she received from her campaign in 2018. Congressional candidates are allowed to draw paychecks from their campaigns, but payments are only allowed during an active candidacy. Continued: “The committee did not find that she sought to unjustly enrich herself by receiving the campaign funds at issue,” the committee wrote Friday. “Indeed, during her campaign, Representative Tlaib received a conservative amount of campaign funds, well below the legal threshold for the maximum amount of salary she was eligible to receive; these payments allowed her to forego her salary from her full-time employment so that she could fully participate in campaign activities.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/status/1245428215751065602?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245428215751065602&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F04%2F01%2Frep-rashida-tlaib-reminds-us-the-covid-19-pandemic-is-exposing-structural-racism-in-the-us%2F REACTIONS:
