Posted on 08/29/2009 4:01:06 AM PDT by TheMadKing
In response to the Left-driven boycott of Whole Foods Markets over CEO John Mackey's Washington Post oped opposing the ObamaCare bill, the national Tea Party Coalition is scheduling a "buycott" encouraging members to shop Whole Foods on September 1st.

Now that’s fun! I can go to Whole Foods and splurge on some of their fantastic food and feel I’m doing it for a good cause...
I think the real Whole Foods buyers have left Zero a longtime ago.
Um, sure. Enjoy your Tofurky, mashed yeast and protein extract.
Buy your Tea at Whole Foods on Tea Party Tuesday
will do!! It will be FUN!
Defense Industry, you know. No longer needed in the "Era of Obama"!
Oh no, I’m buying their great Grilled Bacon Wrapped Chicken, their BBQ’d Baby Back Ribs, the fresh New England Clam Chowder and the Breakfast Pizza.
If you think Whole Foods is health food, you ain’t been to Whole Foods!
What is Whole Foods, anyway? A grocery store chain? We don’t have anything like it around here in NC. Does it market certain products, what?
Whole Foods should run some “eye-popping” specials that day and see who comes running!
Their food is very high quality, fresh, healthy food. They have a great meat counter.
The CEO has spoken out for conservative causes and now the leftists are calling for his dismissal. Whole Food’s stock has been rising in recent months, and they’re opening more stores.
You have them in NC. Cary, Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh and Winston-Salem
The plan makes a lot of sense and could easily be implemented nationwide with a minimum increase in bureaucracy and SEIU jobs.
Come on down. We have one in the upstate of SC (Greenville).
My wife drive 25 miles to shop there.
LOL! Bring a fat wallet. You'll need it.
Mostly, Whole Foods has done a brilliant job of promoting themselves and enviro-friendly, much like Fresh Market. The Left gobbled it up!
Whole Foods is a super market that prides itself on exotic inventory.
Their deli section has prepared side dishes you will not find any place else. Cheeses and seafood are 2nd to none...
...well not as good as Wegman’s LOL!
WEGMAN’S is like Whole Foods, except that a WEGMAN’S can house a dozen Whole Foods under one roof.
A minor correction: Mr. Mackey’s oped was published in the Wall Street Journal, not the WaPo. Not even sure WaPo would publish it, given their drool cup-worthy adoration of the ObamaMessiah. Sign O’ The Times ;-)
See, that’s the big problem here, REP. Nobody on the Left cares what the issues are. The issues aren’t even the point. Are you with the ObamaMessiah, or are you a racist? See how it all works now ;-)
Here's a wicked idea: Buy gift cards and give them to liberal relatives and friends as birthday or Christmas presents.
My greatest aprehension in shopping there is the multi-pierced freaks who handle your food on check-out.
I've identified a couple of cashiers that I feel comfortable with. I'll stand in line before I go to the others.
I really miss the 1950's and early 60's concept of public hygiene.
Big difference is free ranging chicken and no meats pumped up on hormons. The meats are leaner, tastier, and non toxic.
We don’t have one near us, down here in south alabama. But I did start following them on Twitter as a way to show my luv! lol
Thanks to everyone who responded re. Wholefoods. In Chapel Hill there is a store called ‘A Southern Season’ that we go to about 3 times a year. It has a remarkable deli counter and a wine/beer selection second to none. We always get their almond chicken when we go. Always spend about $150—you really can’t get out for less.
Whole Foods is a fun place to grocery shop! They have things you’ve never seen before and are fun to try. Their store brand is 365 but they carry a little bit of everything. Their produce is awesome and their deli section is just amazing.
I’m waiting for a check. If it comes, I’ll definitely participate!
I agree about their buffet items and salad. Hubby and I go there and eat lunch off the salad / buffet bars and sit outside on their patio and watch the world go by. I think Sept 1 sounds like a great day to do it again!
Now that is an awesome idea.
You buy them a gift, Whole Foods has the money, and it tests the libs commitment. Sweet!
Oooh, you’re baaaad. I like that about you!!
It’s a few miles out of my way - but I need to pick up some vitamins & supplements and they always have what I need!
September 1st will be my preventative HealthCare day.
I hope some RATS are there picketing.. hehehe. I’m feeling a bit fiesty.
Whole Foods... you pay a little more, but just knowing we won’t have to share the store with the loony RATS...makes it very easy to shell out a few extra bucks.
I like how you think!!! hahaha
Went to my neighborhood Whole Foods last week. No boycotters (it was in the afternoon, they probably hadn’t gotten out of bed yet) and PLENTY of customers.
Support Whole Foods this Tuesday!
This is a one-time ping to some FRiends, and also to FR regional pingmeisters. If you don’t have a Whole Foods in your area, don’t worry about it. If you do, please ping your FRiends.
I’ll spend some cash at the W.F. in Thousand Oaks, CA. I’d love to see that day’s profits go sky high on the 31st. I despise that little panty-waist twink who’s been leading the charge for the boycott. I want him to see the profits and wet his pants. The guy is deranged.
Thanks for the ping!
That’s a great idea! I love it. Will the sale of the gift card show up on the 31st — the day it’s purchased — or the day the card is used? I know tax, etc., aren’t calculated until it’s used. Want to be sure the dollar figures are HIGH on the 31st!!
Correction to ME!! September 1, not August 31.
I don't go down that aisle. I stay in the expensive exotic produce section.
It’s 40 miles north, and our Town Hall is that evening, but maybe I can squeeze it in.
will definitely make a point of going in there, i normally steer clear of it as i think of it as a leftwingish type place. funny THEY are the ones boycotting it.
Whole Foods is more an attraction for “foodies” than hippies. A hundred brands of Olive Oil! Six kinds of kale! The produce section, the cheeses.
their baked goods are also good and i have gotten great buys on some of the stuff they have outside in front like the fall mums etc.
The Whole Foods near me is right next to my favorite pizza place. I've never shopped there strictly because of their _reputation_ for catering to the loonie-tunes (Commie-left tree-huggers, et.al.).
I will make it a point, however, to shop there for the very first time on Tuesday, 9/1/09. When I go through the check out line I will make it a point to let them know WHY I am shopping there for the first time, and if Whole Foods succumbs to the leftist's pressure to get rid of their CEO John Mackey, because of his WSJ op-ed opposing the ObamaCare bill, it will be my LAST time shopping there.
I will also be notifying all the patriots I know about this up-coming "buy-out".
As an aside - the first buy-out I participated in was the huge Florida orange juice buy-out we held here back in the 90's when the moon-bat leftists tried to get Florida Orange Juice to stop allowing Rush Limbaugh to be their spokesman or advertising on his show. We all brought coolers to put the fresh squeezed orange juice in and cleaned out the whole orange grove's supply of juice - not leaving one bottle. What we couldn't use personally, we donated to nursing homes, food pantrys, and the like. bttt
I agree, but fairly or unfairly, they have a reputation for catering to the "watermelon" (green on the outside; red on the inside) crowd.
It’s a supermarket that sells very high quality produce and meat, fish. We have several here in NYC. There’s one in New Orleans, uptown, that is literally the only place to get decent food. I don’t know how many different cities it’s in, but I imagine it’s nationwide.
Someone suggested buying a Whole Foods Gift Card, which can be done online and given to your favorite liberal for Christmas; or people could spend it on themselves later.
I'm just posting the info for the benefit of everyone who may read this thread.
What an awesome post! Great freeping — or freemarketing!
Whole Foods gift card online ordering site at post 45. Get one to use later, or as a gift!
Cool. And when you order a gift card, there’s a message field for you to “personalize” the card if you want to. Plenty of space to write, “Stop Obamacare now” — and much more.
Thanks Albion. I’m in and will see how many hypocrite lefties are there, hah.
I have a weakness for the olive bar and I do find specials. One must be careful, though, the tab can run up:-)
I like it all, but particularly the food bar (great place for lunch or dinner), the olive bar and the natural cosmetics.
