The usual cadre of ignorant prominent conservatives is urging us to support of Whole Foods because left-wingers are boycotting the overpriced gourmet food chain since CEO John Mackey wrote an op-ed against ObamaCare in the Wall Street Journal. Sorry, but I have no sympathy for the guy. What goes around in his store’s behavior, comes around, even in organics.

Glorifying Sbarro Pizza Homicide Bombing
The “conservatives” who support Whole Foods are the same ones who look the other way in other areas when someone they like on some issues is a jihad-enabler. You know who they are. They’re the same ones who praised Jew-hating HAMASnik Robert Novak, promote Jihad Darrell a/k/a Darrell Issa (Hezbollah’s favorite Congressman), and lamented Sami Al-Arian/Islamic terrorist buddy Henry Hyde, because a conservative’s pan-jihadism can be overlooked in a convenient dose of double standards and hypocrisy.They’re group–not critical–“thinkers.”
But, unlike them, I look beneath the surface of silly, shallow talking points and principle-free partisan knee-jerking. And I’m not upset that Whole Foods is being boycotted. In fact, I love it. It’s a great episode in poetic justice for a store chain that helps fund and promote jihad and anti-Semitic/anti-Israel radio programming. And now they’re getting what they deserve . . . from their own crazy ideologues.
Yes, John Mackey and his store are now getting a taste of their own medicine–the very orthodoxy they practice against Israel is now being practiced against him.
A story I broke on this site documents how Whole Foods refuses to carry Israeli olive oil. I documented how the store has, instead, chosen to carry, vigorously promote, and subsidize Palestinian olive oil made by extremists who support Islamic terrorism. The olive oil, Canaan Fair Trade olive oil, sends its profits to fund scholarships at An-Najah University (and even worse “schools”), where the majority of the student body is in HAMAS and recruits for HAMAS, and where official school displays glorify the homicide bombing of innocent civilians at Sbarro pizzeria in Jerusalem, and mock its blown-up victims.
Canaan Fair Trade also subsidizes the anti-Israel, anti-American Rachel Corrie Foundation, honoring a pan-Islamist whore who committed suicide (standing in front of a bulldozer) for her Palestinian buddies, after she took photos of herself smilingly burning the American flag for her Palestinian friends.
And Whole Foods isn’t just selling their stuff, it’s gone out of its way to send out press releases and talking points supporting this business of terror-shills in a way it never does for any other product or company. That’s because Whole Foods has made the deceptively-named Canaan Fair Trade outfit a special project for promotion. Why?
Watch this video found by Shawarma Mayor, showing An-Najah University-funded displays mocking the victims of the Sbarro Pizza homicide bombing in Jerusalem, where 15 innocent people were murdered and countless others seriously maimed. Watch how they step on the American flag to enter the “exhibit” and how they have pictures of their heroes, including Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, adorning the walls of this university.
When you shop at Whole Foods, you fund this:
Then, there is Whole Foods’ sponsorship of anti-Israel, anti-Semitic “Radio “Intifada” programming on a West Coast radio station, KPFK. After repeated requests by many, Whole Foods refuses to drop its sponsorship and donations to this programming, despite the fact that rival Trader Joe has ceased its relationship. Some of “Radio Intifada’s” and KPFK’s fundraising materials specifically attack Jews. But that didn’t stop Whole Foods from donating to them. Learn more about this at Join The Boycott (scroll down).
Given all of this, I really don’t care whose health plan Mr. Mackey supports, which is the equivalent of an ant urinating compared to the consistent support his stores have given to enabling Israel-haters. Because it doesn’t matter what kind of health plan you have when you’re blown to your sudden death by the people Mr. Mackey helps fund by financing scholarships to their campus for recruitment and training and supporting the propaganda put out by the Rachel Corrie worshippers. In a few weeks, months, or even a year, ObamaCare will have come and gone or have been voted upon. But Whole Foods will still likely be carrying terrorism olive oil and funding Jew-hatred radio shows. That some guy wrote an article you liked once won’t change that. And shopping there won’t change whether or not ObamaCare is defeated, but it will help fund Islamic terrorism and Jew-hatred.
So I recommend that you not shop at Whole Foods. I used to be a good customer of the store. As an observant Jew, it’s customary to buy extra special foods and fruits for the Jewish Sabbath, and I used to get them there. But since I learned, in late March, of Whole Foods’ hatred of Israel and the Jews, I haven’t set foot there. They will never again get a penny of my money.
To me, the Whole Foods boycott by its typical patrons on the left is just desserts.
Organic just desserts.
Purified artesian mineral water crocodile tears from me for John Mackey and Whole Foods.
