Just a web search for “shoppers of Walmart” will tell you it’s gaining among the left. One couldn’t imagine a freakier bunch than that.

The Holly Hobbie look.
Arkansas-based company, Arkansas first lady.
Walmart let’s full blown trannies serve as clerks. 6’ tall men in sun dresses. Sodomite Sales Associates.
Can someone give me one example of a proposed or established "anti-gay" law?
Corporations doing politics are inviting the school drop out marchers and rioters to run their business.
Chickafilet is still packed full with democrats craving their sandwich. I never eat there but my lib people cannot get enough of it despite calling it homophobic

“A majority of shoppers who identify as Democrats now say they would consider shopping at Walmart”
This is BS. Democrats have always shopped at Walmart.
Yeah, I saw one just the other day.
O’Sullivan’s Law eventually catches up with everything.
Only things missing are the walking casts and law enforcement monitor bracelets.

“This is BS. Democrats have always shopped at Walmart.”
Yes. It’s rare that I’m in a Wally World checkout line and don’t see someone paying with an EBT card.
Walmart is not unionized so the evil donkey lied to its foolish voters that Walmart is a terrible place to shop. The inmates looked over the plantation walls and saw the benefits of shopping at Walmart. Now the donkey is losing the anti-Walmart crowd. Ha ha ha ha more crumbling on their side.
I remember Walton’s store back in the 1950s. When he started Wal-Mart, he broke the economic stranglehold of the CHICKEN MEN who paid starvation wages well below minimum as they were “Agricultural”.
Poor people lived in run down shotgun shacks and tar paper shacks, and many houses did not have indoor plumbing. We had CULTURE SHOCK with the backwardness here when we were dragged as kids kicking and screaming from our home in the Rocky Mountains.
Now NW Arkansas is a powerhouse of economic growth in the state. Without Walmart, this would just be another poverty ridden state with people fleeing to Oklahoma for good jobs.
why am I here? I found a great job starting up a new coal fired power plant with super wages and benefits.
