Black Friday Walmart Protests Reek of Obama White House

Obama met with union leaders and MoveOn.org last week at the White House.
Evidently, Obama felt it was important to include the radical leftist group at the meeting.

Last Tuesday Barack Obama met with national union leaders and the leaders of MoveOn.org and Center for American Progress at the White House.

Less than a week later these same groups have joined together to organize Black Friday Walmart protests.
What a coincidence?
The Daily Caller reported:

MoveOn.org has jumped into the fight for a unionized Wal-Mart workforce.

The liberal group has sent emails to its list nationwide, urging a mass-protest outside Wal-Mart stores on Black Friday. The organization is encouraging people to strike against management even if they aren’t Wal-Mart employees themselves.

“Instead of listening to and learning from its workers, Wal-Mart has sought to silence us and retaliate against those who dare to speak up,” MoveOn.org said in its email to supporters. “Warehouse workers who work for Wal-Mart contractors have also experienced retaliation for speaking out. Now, Wal-Mart workers have had enough.”

Black Friday is traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year.

“On Black Friday, and throughout the Holiday Season, we’re standing up for an end to the retaliation against workers who speak out for what’s right for our families, our communities, and our country,” the left-wing organization continued. “Will you show your support?”

Liberal union groups OUR Wal-Mart and Making Change at Wal-Mart, which are working to organize the planned strike, are aggressively trying to harness dues from Wal-Mart’s massive workforce.

Gee, do you think the Walmart protests came up during the White House meetings with Obama?

    Four more f***in’ years of this bulls**t. God I HATE these people. I’m at the point where I want to confront Obama voters and scream “what the hell is wrong with you?”

    Wal Mart can’t keep playing both sides of the aisle, and I think they are about to find out just what that has gotten them.

  • Sasja

    I don’t normally venture out on Black Friday anymore but some of us will be motoring over to our local Walmart to do a little shopping. It will be interesting to see just how many “protestors” there are.

  • http://none tommy mc donnell

    if sam walton wanted obama re-elected he deserves the protests.

    a word of warning to the protestors. don’t get between a woman shopper and a bargain.

    Sometimes corporations donate to dems as a sort of bribe hoping their business won’t be a target. Then you have the heirs of their father’s hard work who don’t seem to have much going on between their ears.

    What happened when Obama isn’t being impeached. Are there a load of Chicken C@#ts in leadership today. DARE TOOTING.

    Here goes:

    This entire DNI story is BS, Obama invented and had a source at the DNI allege it today to CBS so that the DNI takes the blame for Obama’s change to the talking points. This is why the DNI’s stories to McCain from last week to today don’t match up. After Petraeus’s testimony on Friday that the talking points were changed, Obama HAD to blame somebody or speculation would have continued to point to him, because on Thursday & Friday every involved entity except the White House testified that they did not change the talking points. That was no good. Somebody had to change their story today and lo and behold it happened. Miracle. And in an unofficial way, not under testimony, with a “leak” to CBS, so everybody’s ass is covered on that end. This latest lie is so convenient it’s obvious to the point of absurd.

    Background – Anonymous CBS Source: DNI, Not White House Or State Department, Cut ‘Al Qaeda’ From Talking Points

    Excerpted from The Hill: Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said he was “surprised and frustrated” to read reports that the intelligence community had altered talking points about the attack in Benghazi, Libya, after being told last week that the source of the edits was unknown.

    A spokesman for Director of National Intelligence James Clapper on Monday said it was the intelligence community — and not other agencies or the White House — that made the edits.

    Marion Barry: Only ‘liberal white folks’ care about source of turkey giveaway money

    Hundreds of Ward 8 residents waited in long lines Tuesday for a free Thanksgiving turkey courtesy of D.C. Councilman Marion Barry. But just a day before the event was embroiled in controversy thanks to a racially-charged comment made by Barry surrounding his annual giveaway.

    another racist holiday

  • Jesusland

    Conservatives believe in the Thanksgiving holiday and the family. Any company that deprives families of celebrating this holiday by staying open on Thanksgiving is crap. If you shop there on Thanksgiving you are crap. You are not only crap, but not a conservative, and not a real American.

  • Contessa61

    Patty,

    Obama changed his own talking points. In debate number 2 he made sure everyone knew that he called it a terrorist attack in the Rose Garden, yet 5 days later he sends out Susan Rice to say it was due to a video. He is a joke.

    Walmart protests reek of the White House, and the White House reeks of …. well, let’s just say something really stinks about this whole thing. And we have HOW MANY MORE YEARS of this BS to deal with? For the first time in my adult life, I’m really DISGUSTED with my country. I plan to spend the next four years identifying and punishing the people who vote Democrat. Maybe if enough people make these peoples’ lives miserable, they’ll finally wake up …

    When the Progressives came for the schools,
    we remained silent;
    I was not a parent.

    When they took over the universities,
    I remained silent;
    I was not a student.

    When they came for the MSM,
    I did not speak out;
    I did not watch TV.

    When they came for the courts,
    I remained silent;
    I wasn’t paying attention.

    When they came for me,
    there was no one left to speak out.

    Checkmate, game over.

    Okay…
    1. Open a credit card account
    2. Buy buy buy
    3. Use credit card to pay minimum payment
    4. Demand higher credit limit as you approach the limit
    5. Then demand no limit.
    6. Accelerate buying

    This is what our government is doing… this is the passion of the left…

    Impeachment bills are done in the House, but it’s the Senate that votes whether or not to kick the prez out of office. It won’t happen.

    Elections have consequences.
    And stolen elections have even worse consequences.

  • Bob

    Anytime moveon.org and SEIU are involved you know it is all about radical control of wealth. These groups have been linked to ACORN and are puppets for the democratic party.
    Connect the dots of the money trail to democrats and the radical agenda they have to take over businesses.

    @ bike mike

    That is exactly what this administration has planned from day one. Why do you think he and everyone around him does what they do ? Excite the masses, with executive orders, circumvents congress, racial pitting, Lybia stand down, FastandFurious, voter Ids, voter fraud, on and on, they have intentions and it is to bring revolution, civil war to this nation like other nations.Giving weapons to other nations to overthrow their countries is as plain as anyone can see, he is indirectly doing the same here, causing millions to buy arms in unpresidented numbers. Installing fear in all Americans with policy is the best cause for arming, and second cause for using. He and his directors will not stop until they achieve their goal, civil unrest, civil war, revolution. It will not end pretty. Obama back in his hay day was the voice of unreason, insanity, when he called for revolution, predicted it, lived for it…God bless America..

    Oh my! I despise shopping at Walmart at any time. I used to get my prescriptions
    there when they were leading the charge of $4 and $10.00 prices. When I ordered ahead of
    time, they always screwed the order up and I had to wait another half hour to wander the stores
    and try and stay out of the way of 300/400 lb. shoppers blocking the aisle, along with even
    ruder shoppers hitting me in the ankles with their carts.

    I must say that the greeters and clerks were all very nice. That was the only pleasant part.

    Now I am going to have to go there on Black Friday because I am an anti union person,
    based on experience of being the manager of a company division who was not union, dealing
    with sister companies that were. Years ago, however, bad memories of dealing with these
    parasites, especially the ones from the head union office in Vegas. Bottom line was that the
    production from the non union plant always was way ahead of the union plants. Always.
    And the dirty little secret was that our non union people were paid more!

    I think I will take my ten year old grandson with me. He will probably tell them to get a life!

  • westsun

    YAWNER!! SO WHAT! It will do nothing and mean nothing. Why cover this? Wal-mart employs over 1 million workers….if these SCUM do not like it…QUIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are others jobs…OH THAT IS RIGHT NO THERE ARE NOT!!

    Look the Unions have no power and they are clamoring for the OLD DAYS! I think it is so funny…18,000 workers from Hostess canned and yet you look at these fools and TRUMKA…that fat slob thinks he can play his little two year old games!

    Hey TRUMKA…I will make it a point to stop by a Wal-mart today or tomorrow and spend 100s of dollars just to shove it in your face. I will go out of my way to support NON UNION SHOPS!! I am sick of UNIONS…they are worthless, destroy business and are for the WEAK MINDED DRONES that follow the point of the Greatest Stupidity!

    Or Wal-mart…FIRE THEM ALL!! There are others that will work gladly….tell these whiners and cry babies to take a hike off and work in STUPIDVILLE USA where Trumka is THIN and has a BRAIN!

  • Sasja

    We have been shopping the same Walmart since it opened a while back. If working for this company is so terrible, why do we see the same employees after all these years? Most we know on a first-name basis and they have no problems with their employer.

    We also live in a state with low unemployment, available jobs, even unskilled labor, and still they choose to work at Walmart.

    By the way. They do not want the unions.

  • olm

    I hate shopping at Wal Mart with a passion.
    If Wal Mart is donating to Obama/Democrat/Union thugs they brought this on themselves.
    So, as I hate the Wal Mart shopping experience, they can duke it out themselves.

  • Tim

    Let’s see, the AFL-CIO, SEIU (AKA Purple People Beaters), AFSCME and Moveon.org are all extensions of the Communist Party and Lenin did say that Unions were the transmission belt of Socialism…so what we can conclude is that these Communist organizations (including the White House) are trying to force 100% of workers into the “Party” why that is just so Soviet of them.

    tommy mc donnell commented: “if sam walton wanted obama re-elected he deserves the protests.”

    Sam Walton died years ago. He left his Sam’s/Walmart empire to his children, who, unlike their father and in opposition to his business policy, treat their employee’s like chit. It’s too bad that Buffalobob is right, that this is all about the union dues because the Walton clan could be better to their employees and still maintain an impressive profit margin, just as their father did.

  • rabble-rouser

    you mean I can bad mouth my employer and won’t get reprimanded? What a great new concept!

  • Questionman

    lets’ clear some things up!

    @Klansman boobi! It’s obvious your a racist AND a retard to booth. that WorldNUTDaily crap story was created MARCH of this year. Learn to read, ahole!

    @Klansman Contessa61, Please step back and look at this whole situation with open ears and wide eyes.

    On the day of and before the attack in Benghazi, protester were protesting the video at the Embassy in Eygpt. The Embassy put out a statement about the video.

    Then, the attack happened in Benghazi. What the Blaze article omits is that in the 1st email, it stated that there was security at the compound. Then, less than an hour later the fighting had stopped.

    Then, throughout the night and in the days after, protests broke out all over the Middle East regarding the video.

    Also, at 6:00 on the night of the attack, an email is sent stating that a terrorist org. admitted to the attack, but then, several days later, they retracted their role in it.

    It does not seem unreasonable that the Administration was confused with what role a terrorist org. played and/or the video played in the attack since there had been protests about it in the Middle East that day and throughout the night and subsequent days after. Also, this article even says “the president said that he did not believe that the Benghazi violence was due solely to random mob action.”

    Also, have any of you ever considered that by downplaying the terrorist’s role in this was a strategy by the Administration to help keep other American’s in the region safe? It’s a possibility that should be considered before jumping to accusations and conspiracy theories.

    Grow a brain, stupid!

    My last dollar is spent with wal-mart will have already been spent IF they go union. I will do my part to NOT funnel ANY more money via Union Laundry to the Democrat party. I avoid Unions like the Bubonic Plague. The Union bosses are corrupt Thugs and they all deserve prison time for the direct attack on our constitution they have been leading for almost 100 years. Unions GO TO HELL!
