Wal-Mart Hatred

On Black Friday, a timely day to resurrect this episode of Penn & Teller’s Bullshit, defending Wal-Mart against the political stooges, unions, anti-capitalists, competitors and Left-leaning activists aligned against the retail chain.

This is one of the best takedowns ever of Robert Greenwald, the lockstep propagandist masquerading as a documentary filmmaker, who created Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, among other works. Greenwald assails Wal-Mart for opposing unions, but as Penn & Teller note, he’s never used union crews on his low-budget, agitprop movies. It brings to mind what William F. Buckley once told a detractor, “I won’t insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said.” (Caution: NSFW, owing to language and nudity) H/T iOwntheWorld

UPDATE: A nationwide boycott against Wal-Mart fizzled out today. Shoppers came out in droves, and as few as 50 Wal-Mart employees — out of a workforce of 1.3 million — staged walkouts. A union-backed group, Our Wal-Mart, was leading the fight and garnered plenty of media coverage, but apparently its support was all Astro-Turf.

Liberals Destroy More Jobs

Kudos to liberals. They’ve taken down another US corporation, and relegated the iconic Twinkie to the dustbin of history. Now, they are pushing wildcat strikes at Wal-Mart on Black Market — the biggest shopping day of the year. Alfonzo Rachel says Liberals won’t rest until the American economy is totally destroyed. But he wonders, in this ZoNation, why they value laziness and poverty over hard work and success. H/T PJTV
