Wal-Mart made a big mistake hiring Andrew Young as its new high-paid spokesman. Already, we won’t shop there because top Wal-Mart executives pressured contractors to hire illegal aliens. (And ICE–Immigration and Customs Enforcement–let the retail giant get away with it.)
Now, there’s Young–another reason why Wal-Mart is a poor choice as cause-celebre for conservatives. Andrew Young was forced to resign as Jimmy Carter’s U.N. Ambassador in 1979 because he met with the P.L.O. and, through his actions, legitimized the group. The P.L.O. was a designated terrorist entity at the time and U.S. officials were forbidden with meeting with the group.
But Young didn’t stop there. He predicted that his meeting with the Palestinian terrorists would create “the constituency for the Palestinians.” It became a self-fulfilling prophecy. Many believe–with good reason–that Young met with these terrorists because of his hatred of Jews and his desire to further break down the disintegrating relationship between American Blacks and Jews.
Young became a defender and lionizer of Palestinian terrorists who brutally murdered U.S. officials (including the then-highest ranking Black diplomat George Curtis Moore–so bludgeoned that authorities could not differentiate him on sight from the White diplomat the Palestinians also tortured to death). But, also, Young’s meeting became the prominent first step down the slippery legitimacy slope for what is now the HAMAS terror nation-state.
Wal-Mart’s new spokesman, Andrew Young. A great reason not to shop there and help subsidize his paycheck.
