The nation’s largest retailer Walmart drew criticism when it panicked and announced that it would be banning the sale of all merchandise with the Confederate flag after the Charleston church massacre triggered a frenzied backlash against the stars and bars. Walmart seems to have gotten too big for their britches by so quickly shunning Dixie for the sake of some cover your ass maneuvers by corporate hacks after the south fueled the massive expansion of Sam Walton’s business into the global force that it is today.
One proud southerner – a man named Chuck Netzhammer – turned the tables on big blue smiley when he punked them by submitting a bakery order for a cake bearing the symbol of Islamist fanatic group ISIS after his request for one with the Confederate flag was turned down. Walmart baked the ISIS cake and Mr. Netzhammer took it viral on the internet leading to much embarrassment for the corporation and now an apology.
As reported by ABC News in the story “Walmart Apologizes for “Making ISIS Cake for Man Denied Confederate Flag Design”:
A man in Louisiana is asking for an explanation from Walmart after his request for a Confederate flag cake at one of its bakeries was rejected, but a design with the ISIS flag was accepted.
Chuck Netzhammer said he ordered the image of the Confederate flag on a cake with the words, “Heritage Not Hate,” on Thursday at a Walmart in Slidell, Louisiana. But the bakery denied his request, he said. At some point later, he ordered the image of the ISIS flag that represents the terrorist group.
“I went back yesterday and managed to get an ISIS battleflag printed. ISIS happens to be somebody who we’re fighting against right now who are killing our men and boys overseas and are beheading Christians,” Netzhammer said.
A spokesman for Walmart told ABC News, “An associate in a local store did not know what the design meant and made a mistake. The cake should not have been made and we apologize.”
“That’s an ISIS battleflag cake that anybody can go buy at Walmart,” Netzhammer explains in a video posted on YouTube showing the sheetcake. “But you can’t buy a Confederate flag toy, with like, say, a ‘Dukes of Hazzards’ car.”
Granted that Walmart doesn’t employ rocket scientists at their stores, especially in the deli and bakery departments so this was a pretty easy trick to accomplish. While the Confederate flag is recognizable to all, the morons doing the decorating can no more identify the ISIS flag than say a CNN McNews bimbo can differentiate it from a black and white dildo flag flown at a Gay Pride Day parade.
Mr. Netzhammer punked them big time and also provided an example of how activists can similarly expose corporations and political organizations as the feckless hypocrites that they are. It is a perfect case showing the effectiveness of non-violent resistance and civil disobedience when one man with an innovative idea is able to force a huge corporation like Walmart to devote time and resources to deal with being trolled in such a manner. I suppose though that it won’t be long until the Obama occupying government will find a way to lump such acts in with “terrorism” because that is just the way that we roll in Obamastan.
