Comedian and civil rights activist Dick Gregory compared Walmart to the leader of Nazi Germany at a 'living wage' rally in front of the D.C. City Council Tuesday.
"When you look at Hitler and those thugs, you can put Walmart right next to them," Gregory said in his speech to the 150 or so people at the event.

old age? drug consumption? or is he just that stupid?
Dick Gregory is not as funny as he used to be.
I got satellite radio because I wanted to listen to stand-up. After a month or two, I couldn’t bear it. It was so anti-American, anti-conservative, anti-Christian, I didn’t want to hear another thing. They not only lost me as a customer, I’ll never go back.
I still think the House should pass a $15/hr min wage and dare the Senate and Baraq to make it law.
I hope Wal Mart pulls out and stays out of DC. And I hope other businesses follow Wal-Mart’s lead and stay out of DC. If these folks want a ghetto, let them have it.
he seems to have lost....something ...perhaps recently
heck make it FIFTY Bucks and Hour!
living wage indeed!
Dick Gregory was funny? I can’t imagine why he believes anything he has to say that is worth listening to.
yeah Low Prices....are discriminatory! RACIST EVEN
DEMAND High Prices NOW!!!
Yes. I think Dick Gregory used to be funny - but it was a very long time ago.
all those years of bitterness....have apparently eaten away at his soul and his “mind”
I got satellite radio because I wanted to listen to stand-up”
...same here. Always trashing Sarah, Reagan, Bush etc. Not a word about the biggest joke around...Obama.
Being an ignorant ass does not stop you from getting in the news I see......
That dude holding the sign would be the first in line at Walmart to get a Good Friday sale item. Count on it!
These days....its almost ....a given.
“where the white people at” some comedian....1900 something
In 1961, while working at the Black-owned Roberts Show Bar in Chicago, he was hired by Hugh Hefner to work at the Chicago Playboy Club after Hefner heard him perform the following material:
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. I understand there are a good many Southerners in the room tonight. I know the South very well. I spent twenty years there one night.
Last time I was down South I walked into this restaurant and this white waitress came up to me and said, “We don’t serve colored people here.” I said, “That’s all right. I don’t eat colored people. Bring me a whole fried chicken.”
Then these three white boys came up to me and said, “Boy, we’re giving you fair warning. Anything you do to that chicken, we’re gonna do to you”. So I put down my knife and fork, I picked up that chicken and I kissed it. Then I said, “Line up, boys!”
This routine caused a direct request from publisher Hugh Hefner and he was booked as a replacement for the white comedian Professor Irwin Core
the high point of his career...
“Gregory is the author of Nigger, published in 1963 as his first autobiography. The book was a best seller and has since sold more than seven million copies.”
WOW he may be solely responsible for the popularization of self loathing IN....the “black community”.....
Gregory met his wife Lillian Smith at an African-American club; they married in 1959. They have ten children, not including one who died at birth.
He has been criticized for being an absent father. In a 2000 interview with The Boston Globe, Gregory was quoted as saying, “People ask me about being a father and not being there. I say, `Jack the Ripper had a father. Hitler had a father. Don’t talk to me about family.’”

DICK GREGORY has lost his 40-acre farm in Plymouth, Mass., in a foreclosure, although he said he, his wife and their 10 children hoped to continue living there. Mr. Gregory said he hoped to work out a deal with Citizens Trust Bank of Georgia, which claimed Town Hill Farm after he defaulted on a $165,942 mortgage.
Mr. Gregory told The Patriot Ledger of Quincy, Mass., that he was unable to make payments because of his pending lawsuit against his two partners in their Slim-Safe Bahamian Diet business.
I didn’t think corporations were people. I just can’t keep the lunacy straight anymore.

The Gregory children go to school with the children of President Barack Obama, according to the Washington Post. That school is the co-ed Quaker school Sidwell Friends.
Momma, a welfare cheater. A criminal who couldn’t stand to se her kids go hungry, or grow up in slumbs and end up mugging people in dar corners. I guess the system didn’t want her to get off relief, the way it kept sending social workers around to be sure Momma wasn’t trying to make things better.
The real news here: Dick Gregory is still alive.
Frankly Im amazed!!
That cat with the sign, “Keep WalMart DC Free” had a fairly worthwhile point.
