Because We Love A Good Apology

walmartCNN tells us:


“As of Monday afternoon, Walmart.com carried the Confederate flag as well as attire featuring the flag’s design, such as T-shirts and belt buckles.

“We never want to offend anyone with the products that we offer. We have taken steps to remove all items promoting the confederate flag from our assortment — whether in our stores or on our web site,” said Walmart spokesman Brian Nick. “We have a process in place to help lead us to the right decisions when it comes to the merchandise we sell. Still, at times, items make their way into our assortment improperly — this is one of those instances.”

The teeshirts and belt buckles are sentient and somehow make their way into the assortment? Is this the Rise of the Machines?!

    The guns and ammunition Wal-Mart still sells offend me. When will those be removed from their catalogues and stores?

    If thine eye offend thee, pluck it out.

    Seriously, pluck it before you click this pic.

    “That Duck Dynasty stuff? We meant to sell the hell out of that. Rednecks love that shit,” they did not add.

    Haven’t set foot in a Walmart in years, and no plans to start any time soon. Or ever.
