This week Wal-Mart announced they were yanking all items bearing the Confederate flag from their shelves.
“We never want to offend anyone with the products that we offer,” stressed Wal-Mart spokesman Brian Nick. “We have taken steps to remove all items promoting the confederate flag from our assortment — whether in our stores or on our web site.”
Wal-Mart’s decision, like Governor Nikki Haley’s to remove the Confederate flag from her State’s capitol, was obviously provoked by the recent Charleston “hate-crime.”
Over at Gateway Pundit Kristinn Taylor points out that on their web-site Wal-Mart merchants seventeen different posters and prints glorifying Che Guevara. So in case any Wal-Mart officials are perusing Townhall today here’s a few items to consider regarding the selling or promotion of ““offensive” merchandise:
“The Negro is indolent and spends his money on frivolities and drink; the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent…The Negro has maintained his racial purity by his well known habit of avoiding baths.”
That’s from Che Guevara’s diaries, which Wal-Mart proudly merchants.
“N**ger!” taunted my jailers between tortures,” recalled the world’s longest suffering black political prisoner to this writer. “We pulled you down from the trees and cut off your tail!” laughed my torturers. For months I was naked in a 6 x 4 foot cell. That’s four feet high, so you couldn’t stand. But I felt a great freedom inside myself. I refused to commit spiritual suicide.”
That wasn’t Nelson Mandela. No, the prisoner was a black Cuban named Eusebio Peñalver, whose incarceration and torture at the hands of the regime whose emblem you promote in 17 different posters and prints stretched to 29 years, surpassing Nelson Mandela’s record in time behind bars and probably quintupling the horrors suffered by Mandela during this period. In fact the emblem (Che Guevara) that Wal-Mart proudly merchants represents the regime that jailed and tortured the most and longest suffering black political prisoner sin the history of the Western hemisphere—many more than were jailed for political offenses by Apartheid South Africa.
