Walmart to stop selling Confederate flag merchandise

 Walmart, the country's largest retailer, will remove all Confederate flag merchandise from its stores, the company told CNN Monday.

The announcement is the latest indication that the flag, a symbol of the slave-holding South, has become toxic in the aftermath of a shooting last week at a historic African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina. Gov. Nikki Haley announced in a Monday afternoon news conference that she supports removing the Confederate flag from the state capitol grounds.

Walmart.com currently carries the Confederate flag as well as attire featuring the flag's design, such as T-shirts and belt buckles.

  6. Next time I venture into a Walmart, if I see a Che Guevara tee shirt, a Mexican flag image, an Iranian flag tee shirt, etc. I'm going straight to the managers office to raise hell! CH

    How about they make the Iranian cab drivers (aka Terrorists) take their little flags off of the rear view mirror of half the cabs in America's cities.

    1. Makes as much sense and it would work with enough people doing it. Thanks.

    2. Your idea is the kind of impotent
      protest whose time has long passed,
      when the matter at hand is defending
      our Constitutional Republic and all
      that goes along with it.
      A waste of time.

    We are in now in an open war with
    the "elected" treasonous communists and their
    foot soldiers destroying our Republic.
    It is time to start performing accordingly.
    At a minimum, those living in the AO's of Confederate
    memorials and cemeteries must begin organizing
    (QUICKLY) for their defense.
    Some shitbag called into CSPAN this morning
    (claiming to be in SC) and commented that the
    solution is to destroy all symbols, monuments
    and memorials of the Confederacy.
    The piece of shit ended by saying that all Confederate
    cemeteries should have the gravestones removed and
    the land bulldozed over.
    Only fools fail to realize that the complete censure
    and destruction of history (and it's living descendants)
    is a classic criminal foundation of communism.
    We are way behind the curve.

      Agreed.

      Just what the commies did when they took over South Vietnam. If you find the conversation in print, I would love to have it. Thanks.

  8. Good Morning Brock, recent events have led me to change my goals as a Canadian advocate. If you are open minded: I'd like to properly introduce myself, start an Email correspondence, and possibly start a Canadian site dedicated to Confederacy and the Flag. I am the easiest to reach at dvpadvocacy@yahoo.ca

    Thanks,
    Dale

    What the hell happened to Wal-Mart management anyway? They began as a good southern corporate institution that sold US merchandise at good prices and turned into a pro gay, anti south, Chinese merchandiser. Count me in on the boycott column.

  10. I hear ya Cav Med...I spent the day posting online against some of the worst comments against the flag I've ever heard in Canada, and shut down an opinion forum at a local radio station on whether the flag should be illegal here. Southerners have the right to take pride in their lineage and history as any other minority in America. Silence does nothing, but well spoken disciplined words can hit home at times...
