Well, they’ve decided to bring Christmas back to Wal-Mart, but never did anything about their penchant for employing illegal aliens (here and here).
And now, Wal-Mart screwed up on something else. Rick at Bent Corner discovered that Wal-Mart is selling t-shirts that bear a skull and bones exactly like the Nazi SS division, Death’s Head Battalion (“Totenkopf”), which included such evil men as Johann Leprich. It’s now frequently worn by Neo-Nazis.
I’m sure the purchasers at Wal-Mart had no idea and wouldn’t deliberately sell Nazi emblem-laden clothing, but this screw-up needs to be corrected. Wal-Mart needs to immediately pull and destroy the shirts. And its personnel must investigate which of its vendors sympathizes with the Nazis and decided to pull a fast one on the retail giant. Check out the pictures of the Wal-Mart T and the Nazi Death’s Head:
Thanks to reader Chris D. who pointed this out and is rightly disturbed by this.
Let’s see if Wal-Mart responds appropriately and how quickly. We note that Islamists worldwide got mad at Burger King and Nike, merely because a swirl on Ice cream and running shoe emblems, respectively, slightly resembled the Arabic cursive for “Allah.” That was absurd.
But this is a legit concern.
