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

Published

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.

Trending: As If The Matt Gaetz Case Couldn’t Get Any Weirder…

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.

US Pop Star Offers to Pay Fines For Olympic Team Protesting Skimpy Outfits

The IOC wants the women to remain scantily clad, and this is undoubtedly on account of their incessant greed.

The Olympics may have built themselves as some sort of prestigious and untouchable global event in years past, but the last few decades have revealed just what a shady cash-grab the games have become. It all began in the 90’s when the financially-struggling Winter Olympics added snowboarding to the games, in a move that was blatantly meant to generate ad revenue from the emerging sport and its fans.  In this quest to cash in, the International Olympic Committee refused to allow any actual snowboarding organizations participate in the operations, which drove several of the world’s best to boycott.  This, in turn, completely ruined the concept that the gold medalists were truly the best in the world, and exposed the IOC as nothing more than a marketing firm. Now, in 2021, a number of female athletes are complaining that they are being forced to wear skimpier clothes than their male counterparts, (often in the same discipline), to which the IOC responded with a “be quiet and play” sort of attitude. Again, the skimpier outfits equate to more ratings, so Olympic organizers are refusing to make accommodations. This has led US pop star Pink to step up.  US pop star Pink has offered to pay the fines handed out to the Norwegian women’s beach handball team, after they wore shorts like their male counterparts instead of bikini bottoms. The team was fined 1,500 euros (£1,295) for “improper clothing” at the European Beach Handball Championships last week. “I’m very proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team for protesting sexist rules about their uniform,” tweeted the singer on Sunday. “Good on ya, ladies,” she added. “I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.” In doing so, the Olympics will get their coveted cash and these female athletes will be able to perform…

GOP Rep. Says There’s ‘Credible’ Evidence of Wuhan Lab-Leak Theory

China has been avoiding any such investigation for months now.

From the very moment that the COVID-19 pandemic began, there were concerns that China wasn’t telling us the truth. This was primarily based on Beijing’s horrendous record of dishonesty when it comes to the international community, which has been ever-so frequent in cases in which the Chinese government could be made to appear cruel or uncaring. To be fair, it doesn’t take long for most to realize that this is, in fact, reality, especially as we continue to receive credible reports of the nation’s use of concentration camps and ethnic cleansing. In the case of the coronavirus, not only did the world discover that the data coming out of Beijing was wholly incorrect, but that a laboratory specializing in the exact type of coronaviruses that caused COVID-19 happened to be just a few miles away from the epicenter of the pandemic. Now, despite numerous attempts to stall or stymy efforts to investigate the theory that pandemic began as a lab-leak, one US lawmaker is claiming that there is credible evidence of just such a possibility.  Sunday, on FNC’s “The Next Revolution,” Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) stressed the importance of investigating the origins of COVID-19, and in particular, China’s role. His statement was stern. “As you know, we still have yet to have any notice that there will be an investigation. And so I think, rightfully, we used the powers of oversight that we have in Congress and we convened a hearing. Unfortunately, none of the Democrats attended that hearing. But the expert testimony from the witnesses was quite profound and quite significant. “And I think as they said, and I would tend to agree that this virus came from the laboratory, whether it was a leak, whether it was accidental, whether it was intentional, whether it was manmade or whether it…
