Walmart caves in to antisemites

I laughed when I saw my grandson Dougie’s new haircut.
“What’s up, Dougie?”
“ Easy, Grampa, I am going out on halloween like Josh Donaldson. The latter is our local ball team’s third baseman (Blue Jays) who sports a wild haircut. Naturally given wide exposure to young ball fans, it catches on.

Now my question is what is wrong with Doug’s parents when they obviously do not love him sufficiently to hike him over to Walmart and suit him up in today’s latest craze best described buy the geniuses at Walmart and Amazon.

There comes a time when your child wants to save the world the only way he knows how, by dressing as his favorite army man! Have your child step into their Jewish heritage by putting on this Boy’s Israeli Soldier Costume.”
Now bear in mind the costume has been resuced from $57.62 to $27.44. It certainly appears like a steal to me.

What is it with the critics who have flooded Walmart’s Facebook page with some pretty trenchant criticism.
One very grumpy post called the costume “extremely offensive and highly insensitive, not only to the millions of Palestinian-Americans that shop in your stores, but to anyone who has an ounce of humanity in their bodies.”

Obviously not a real American patriot who does not realize USA”s deep attatchment to “the only democracy in the Middle East.”
Another antisemite wrote “Might as well sell a Hitler outfit for children as well! Pitiful!”
Now the deal is off.The cowardly folks at  Walmart has pulled this fabulous item.This pleased a truly awful man with the un-American name Samer Khalat who represents a probable Commie front called The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. Naturally he was pleased at Walmart’s decision.
“The Israeli forces are responsible for the continued death and occupation of the Palestinian people. Such a symbol of fear, violence and a long history of dispossession should not be used for entertainment purposes. Sselling merchandise which mocks Arabs, or any other race or ethnicity, must not be tolerated. These images do nothing but perpetuate racist tropes that have long been used to demonize, otherize and alienate Arab communities throughout history.”
