Walmart Selling ‘Impeach 45’ Merchandise on Website, Instantly Regrets It

Published

Walmart is coming under massive fire from customers for selling merchandise on their website that calls for the impeachment of President Trump, something that many feel is a bad idea with such a large portion of folks being supporters of the current administration and the agenda it’s promoting across the country.

Ryan Fournier, the chairman for the group Students for Trump, was the first person to discover the merchandise on the Walmart website. He then posted a tweet confronting the retail giant for their inclusion of these products, thus kicking off the blowback that’s certainly going to end up hurting their bottom line.

In a Monday tweet, Fournier wrote, “@Walmart why are you selling Impeach 45 baby clothes on your website????? … What kind of message are you trying to send?”

Fournier’s tweet has currently received more than 5,000 retweets and generated nearly 2,000 comments.

After Fournier’s tweet grabbed the attention of many, myriad social media users began calling for a boycott of the retailer.

Other Twitter users found similar merchandise for sale on the site — items not just for children.

According to a Tuesday report by Fox News, the company selling the “Impeach 45” merchandise is called Old Glory, and Old Glory apparently isn’t the only manufacturer of Trump impeachment merchandise — Fox reported that three other companies were featured on Walmart’s online marketplace that also sold similar goods.

Now here’s the thing. The website also sells “Make America Great Again” merchandise too. It’s not like Walmart is attempting to silence conservatives for making their voices heard or anything like that. They are selling merchandise that appeals to folks on both sides of the aisle. That’s all.

There are occasions when folks on the right slip in the application of the principles they believe in and end up acting just like those on the left they criticize by having knee jerk reactions to things.

This is definitely one of those times. If the pro-Trump gear suddenly disappears then we know there’s something going on. Until then, is holding a boycott over a company selling products to a specific audience really the right course of action?

It’s time for the right to stop majoring in the minors.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
