President Trump’s double-condemnation of the Charlottesville violence over the weekend has become just another pedantic talking point of the radical left.
It seems that the Commander in Chief’s immediate repulsion over the bigotry and hatred displayed in Charlottesville was not nearly enough for the mainstream media. From the moment the President disavowed the actions of these white nationalists on Saturday night, the liberal media began a war of words against him, claiming that Trump had somehow emboldened these individual groups by not speaking their names directly.
Of course, these are the same people who refuse to say the name of mass shooting suspects and serial killers for fear of bringing them notoriety.
Now, as the radical left continues to poke and prod the President, Walmart has jumped into the fray with an official statement on their website:
“Respect for the individual is one of our core beliefs at Walmart. And the role we play in communities around the country to build a more diverse and inclusive society is more critical than ever as the tragic events in Charlottesville over the weekend painfully reminded us. Our prayers are with the victims and their families.
“As we watched the events and the response from President Trump over the weekend, we too felt that he missed a critical opportunity to help bring our country together by unequivocally rejecting the appalling actions of white supremacists. His remarks today were a step in the right direction and we need that clarity and consistency in the future.”
While Donald Trump continues to defend his numerous statements on the subject of Charlottesville, corporations such as Walmart are obviously distancing themselves as a matter of self preservation.
With millennials still very much entrenched within the liberalism of the left, Walmart is simply recognizing that these customers will be alive and spending money much longer than a great majority of their conservative demographic will. This half-hearted statement denouncing Trump’s condemnation of the Weekend War of Charlottesville is nothing more than long-range marketing.
