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.

Huckabee Goes NUCLEAR After April Ryan Calls for Sarah Sanders’ Head to Be Lopped Off

That escalated QUICKLY!

CNN’s April Ryan has been a Democrat Party activist since Donald Trump became president. Her outbursts during White House Press Conferences have become a thing of legend – right up there with fellow CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s. Now, tensions have escalated in a big way after Ryan called for Sarah Sanders’ head to be “lopped off.” This is considered journalism to many members of the media in 2019. Sarah’s dad, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, took umbrage with April’s words. Then, it became a Twitter war… Appearing Thursday on CNN’s Outfront, Ryan, who also serves as a political analyst for the network, claimed Sanders had no “credibility left” after special counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released. Ryan noted, “She outright lied, and the people, the American people, can’t trust her. They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece, spokesperson, from the people’s house.” She added, “When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off. It’s ‘Fire Me Thursday’ or ‘Fire Me Good Friday.’ She needs to go.” Enter Huckabee: So liberals—is this okay?Does CNN have the integrity to deal w/ this incitement to murder?

PIGS ARE FLYING! CNN Savagely Tears Obama Apart After Revelations of Mueller Report

Even a broken clock…

John Salvatore

Donald Trump was exonerated once and for all when Attorney General Bill Barr made it clear there was zero collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign. Barack Obama, on the other hand, won’t come out completely unscathed. And this is coming from CNN – a vehement defender of 44 and his legacy. Check this out… From CNN: The partisan warfare over the Mueller report will rage, but one thing cannot be denied: Former President Barack Obama looks just plain bad. On his watch, the Russians meddled in our democracy while his administration did nothing about it. The Mueller report flatly states that Russia began interfering in American democracy in 2014. Over the next couple of years, the effort blossomed into a robust attempt to interfere in our 2016 presidential election. The Obama administration knew this was going on and yet did nothing. In 2016, Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice told her staff to “stand down” and “knock it off” as they drew up plans to “strike back” against the Russians, according to an account from Michael Isikoff and David Corn in their book “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump”. Why did Obama go soft on Russia? My opinion is that it was because he was singularly focused on the nuclear deal with Iran. Obama wanted Putin in the deal, and to stand up to him on election interference would have, in Obama’s estimation, upset that negotiation. This turned out to be a disastrous policy decision. While speaking with White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, CNN’s Jake Tapper literally said his network made no errors when it came to reporting on alleged Russia collusion. That’s like Stacey Abrams saying she is the rightfully elected governor of Georgia. It’s…
