Cher calls for Walmart boycott (over gun sales)
KNVN-TV ^ | December 19, 2012

Posted on 12/20/2012 9:30:14 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Singer Cher has called on her fans to boycott a major retailer over its gun sales following the Connecticut elementary school shooting last week.

The Second Amendment has been called into question following the killings of 20 children and six adults by suspected gunman Adam Lanza at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Politicians are now calling for an overhaul of firearm laws to make it harder for people to buy semi-automatic assault weapons, but sales of guns have risen dramatically since the tragedy, with leading retailer Walmart reportedly running out of stock in five states.

Now singer and Democratic Party supporter Cher has urged her Twitter.com followers not to shop at the store over its policy to continue selling firearms in the wake of the school massacre.

In a series of posts, she writes, "Everyone Should Boycott Wall Mart (sic)! They R (sic) Biggest Seller Of Guns In U.s ! Pick Up Milk, pick Up Bullets. Shop (rival retailer) Target...

I guess she’s not willing to speak to the issue of deranged children.

Geriatric whores won’t be buying guns from Walmart. They are truly the key demographic for firearms purchases.

It must be sad to try and remain young, sexy and relevant when you are no longer young or sexy, and never we’re relevant to intelligent discussion.

This from a woman who believed Mt. Rushmore was a natural rock formation because Sonny told her it was.

If the old hag still had a DVD she was trying to sell through Walmart she’d be quiet as a mouse.

Ok, I'll boycott Walmart and exclusively shop the local Brookshires and boutique stores instead. Cher please send me the extra $450 a month to cover the additional costs and gas money. Thanks!

No? Then zip it! Zip it like your leather thong open crotch underwear!

Rush calls her a “glittering jewel of colossal ignorance” I think we should all boycott her. I had a couple of albums by her, long ago I frisbee'd them into Old Hickory lake.

We’re probably lucky that Cher’s parenting skills only turned out a confused little girl who self-mutillates. I’ll wait until I hear the final words from Brad and Anjelina.

Sonny and Cher lost their brains when Sonny died. I still think Sonny Bono was off’ed by the democrat left or by republican elites. He was doing too well in congress. He was a voice of reason in a sea of idiots.

I'm seeing a Chick-Fil-A moment here.

She whines, the 50 or so of her followers that even know what Walmart is stop going, more than made up for by the thousands of people who will now go there just to spite the skank!

Seems like she did a video writhing around on a 16 inch gun on the
Missouri.

Our local sporting goods store ran out of hi-caps and almost all black rifles the past few days.

They have a good buy on a S&W performance shop 627 w/ 8 round cylinder.

I saw one of those Performance center 8-shots with a scope and a laser/light combo. On top of that, it had THAT DAMN INTERNAL LOCK.

Seriously, that thing had so much crap on it, I think it would go back in time if it hit 88 mph.

It was enough to give a revolver purist a seizure. I had to go look at my Colt Python to get back to my happy place.

WalMart is the largest seller of tapes and CDs. I suggest they immediately stop carrying Cher’s music, and pull it from the shelves.

i.e. boycott her right back. . .

Not only that. In L.A, mostly Asians, mexicans and blacks are situated in these kinds of neighborhoods and they depend on WalMart. Cher has most probably never been to WM so she should STFU.

Time to Reprise one of my timeless classics. Safe to do so, because nobody read it the first time I posted it.
Half-Wit
Cher

My mother married a Sarkisian
[That's 1960's for 'Kardashian']
As a young singer I was nuthin' much
Until one day I got the Bono touch


Half-wit, that's all I ever heard
Half-wit, [that's one-half more than I deserve]
Half-wit, she's a dunce they warned
Smart folks have all mocked me since the day I was born


I made a movie once with Nicholas Cage
And with the gay crowd I was all the rage
The real rockers always laughed at me
Especially when I bared my ass on MTV


Half-wit, that's all I ever heard
Half-wit, [that's one-half more than I deserve]
Half-wit, she's a dunce they warned
Smart folks have all mocked me since the day I was born


I had a problem, more than just a quirk:
Three times each decade I've had plastic work
My life since Sonny's been from doc to doc
My ideology is just a crock


Half-wit, that's all I ever heard
Half-wit, [that's one-half more than I deserve]
Half-wit, she's a dunce they warned
Smart folks have all mocked me since the day I was born

Walmart has plenty of her merchandise for sale. Has she demanded they remove her products yet? If I ran Walmart, I would not buy any more Cher products, and give away all remaining stock: a free Cher item with every gun purchase.
