President Donald Trump’s fans have started yet another boycott, and this time, it’s Walmart in the crosshairs. The store is under fire for putting “impeach 45” shirts for sale on their website, and conservatives are not happy about it.
Outrage over the shirts set Twitter on fire with emotional responses and demands for a boycott of the retail giant. Ryan Fournier, chairman of the group Students for Trump, was one of the first to discover Walmart was selling the clothing item, according to the International Business Times. He asked the company in a tweet, “What kind of message are you trying to send?”
.@walmart why are you selling Impeach 45 baby clothes on your website?????
What kind of message are you trying to send? https://t.co/PwI4nCVAZx

Many have accused Wal-Mart of joining the “alt-left” or the far left because of the shirts.
Looks like @Walmart is looking to join the far left and maybe needs good ol #boycottwalmart to make them think a little! https://t.co/aIMpv9D3Rc

Calls to boycott are nothing new from conservatives. Surely everyone remembers the NFL debacle last year. It sure seems like the new target, however, is Walmart. “I didn’t want to believe it. So I searched myself,” another user wrote. “This is despicable. All American Walmart? Im (sic) out!!!”
Old Glory is the company that sells the “Impeach 45” apparel and it’s not the only one. A quick search on Walmart.com revealed three other companies selling Trump impeachment merchandise. But to be fair, a search for “Make America Great Again” apparel yielded plenty of hats, T-shirt,s and coffee mugs on the same website. Some Twitter useres played Devil’s Advocate and pointed this out to those who were upset.
They are fanning flames of burning money. They have products for conservatives and liberals to buy, it’s a beautiful equal fair system Walmart has lol. Which more stores would follow suit

It really is just capitalism in action. As long as there are two sides fighting over who gets to control everyone else, a good business will find ways to capitalize on the feelings of both democrats and republicans. Fox News reported that Walmart caused a stir back in November after a shirt design that read “Rope. Tree. Journalist. SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED” was listed on its website through an outside company. Teespring had their shirts pulled off the Walmart website days later. But you can still buy the shirt here.
It seems like a reach to be angry that Walmart, a business in a country run on corporatism, is attempting to make money on both right and left statists. But feelings trump actual logic and business sense anymore, and until we add critical thinking back to the curriculum, people will make snap judgments based solely on their first and immediate emotional response while using cognitive dissonance to attempt to justify the outburst.
Fuck the chapel of hell.
I boycotted Wal Fart a long time ago after that ISIS battle flag cake fiasco
Menzo, AMEN to that. I already boycott wallyworld for other reasons.
Me too, BH. It’s the Chinese flea market.
Now it’s the Waters yard sale…
This is a joke, right?
When freedom of speech was respected, a person could safely wear a controversial slogan plastered across his chest. It’s still pretty much that way. Look at that picture. This dude is in a crowd, unless the picture is photoshopped.
I wore new, clean work clothes, into the store, to help an aging relative pick up cheap, throwaway, Chinese sports stuff, for the grandkids.
I got trailed by a fat, Mexican womyn, from the deli section, staffed entirely by fat, Mexican womyn, across the store. They would have waddled and farted through the whole building.
And, there is a black, lesbian manager with a real, purple mohawk, in real life. I have not been noisy or political, in this awful store.
A gay Satanist, who grew hair into the shape of horns, who had lots of facial piercings, and meth teeth, recognized me from his old job, and he liked to brag about how he could get away with stuff. He would test dirty, during reviews, on purpose, say he needed “help” and get on the rehab quota as an unfire-able.
Some shifts look like low-security asylums, and for good reason; the business model of all big box stores is to launder subsidies.
All of the boxes on that job app, which any sane, conscientious person would be afraid to check, are a tax grant, and get you fast-tracked.
Website -> corporate -> investor relations – > donors
Some special interest (you can find it, too) looks like all the floor managers, during inventory.
In some of these fake, makework jobs, all of the cashiers are roughly the same height, width, age, and complexion, and I can demonstrate the reason why, on the public record.
Make sure to mention your “qualifications”. The average rate of turnover is less than one month.
Simple: Nail the doors shut and drop NAPALM through the roof, The End!!!!
Beaumont, that just goes to show how wonderful affirmative action is [SARCASM].
Plz, ftlog just have an ebt malfunction.
Clinton fans did not boycott the places that sold “Hillery for Prison” shirts
I have to agree with the author. It’s called free enterprise. Consumers also have the freedom not to buy it or shop somewhere else if they don’t like it. Everyone has to have something to get butt hurt about today. Too much time wasted on unhappiness and too little time spent seeking happiness.
Free Enterprise? Really?
Why don’t they sell the CONFEDERATE FLAG to millions of shoppers who buy them? Of the popular Nazi Flag, of which I inherited 2 Originals from my grand-dad’s actions in Germany?
We don’t have “Free Enterprise”.
Old Sailor – Amen! Our perspective can put us in ‘prison’, or it can be a passport to our peace and happiness. Too much toxic thinking is just that…toxic. There will always be those who lack, and those who have abundance. I choose abundance; of peace and joy, and happiness…which by the way, comes from God.
I have joined the Walmart boycott, fed up with Walmart.
1. Homeland Security Operation “See something, say something”.
2. They use Facial Recognition on all their cameras, track you every where you go in their stores.
3. Bad gun powder in some of their ammo, it goes bad after one year, their employee told be about it.
4. They will not give you a bag for large items, then they stop you at door and ask to see you receipt. (I’m not a crook).
5. One or two cashiers on duty, force you to use the self checkout lanes.
I have not been to Walmart in six months, not ever going back!
(When they see a white person.)
I have never been in a Walmart that only had one or two cashiers working. When did you go? Three in the morning?
Also, I’ve never used the self-checkout.
I never get stopped for a receipt check either. They used to do that for every single customer, but they evidently got tired of it.
John: I so HATE Trash (Chink) Mart, can’t stand a single thing about the god awful dump hole of a mother place!!!!
You don’t have to show them a receipt at the door as they have no lawful authority to detain anyone.
I just wouldn’t shop there problem solved. chinamart endorsed klintonista because they’re a globalist commie corporation
1. Which has nothing to do with them…they didn’t make the slogan. They didn’t make the Operation.
2. Almost every place is doing this now that can afford it. Not saying I like it, but you are on THEIR property, which is private, and they have the right to monitor what goes on.
3. Their employee is a fucking idiot then, because that is the dumbest god damn thing I have heard in a long time. Walmart doesn’t manufacture ammo, for one, and for two, the ammo they sell is from established manufacturers that aren’t making Walmart specific boxes of rounds.
4. You do not have to stop and you can continue to walk out. I have every single time.
5. Self checkout is making them lose money since many people don’t scan everything. It also takes longer on average to use them. They do need to open more regular lanes.
Haven’t patronized W*lMart in so long I forget. It’s better and cheaper to find things you want in yard sales, flea markets, and second hand stores. Rather have good quality used than throw away new goods.
IS this the SAME company that won’t sell ANYTHING with a Confederate Flag on it?
You support companies with your feet and wallet. I do not shop at ChinaMart. Been that way a few years before Sam died. My wife does not shop there anymore. Unfortunately, in rural America, it is about the only place to shop. Exercise your rights with your feet and wallet. I, for one, can and do live without them. They have put many peep out of work in our state and across the country. They are not the glorious, wonderful company they were thirty years ago. They are CHINAMART.
Both political fake sides have openly merged to cement the overclass tyranny. Walmart has jacked their prices up just like there are no more gas price wars. Fleece them suckers is the latest rage, cheap anything is a thing of the past.
Walmart gives money to the national council of laraza. They’re quite proud of it too as it can be found on their website
I absolutely hate TrashMart to the god damned core!!!! Folks, please, avoid that vile, disgusting hole of a store. They do NOT deserve a damn penny of your $$.
