Et Tu Walmart?

On Friday, Breitbart reported that the retailer Walmart is now in the business of hawking fan gear for Antifa, the far-left organization (with ties to al Qaeda and ISIS) that seeks a communist overthrow of the U.S. government and labels all Trump supporters as “Nazis.”

According to Walmart, the clothing “will [allow you to] express yourself inside the opposition to the ideology, organizations, governments, and people from the far right (fascism).”

According to Breitbart:

The mega-retailer is offering at least 13 different sweatshirts “made in Mexico of 100% COTTON for all-day comfort” promoting the group whose activities were “formally classified” by the Obama Administration “as domestic terrorist violence” as early as April 2016, according to Politico, despite the group’s efforts to downplay this determination.

“Antifa,” or Anti-Fascist Action, is an informal grouping of communist, anarchist, and other far-left street gangs. Drawing inspiration from the German Communist Party’s street fighters of the 1930s, the modern movement grew out of the European far-left punk scene in the 1980s. These unapologetically violent bands of leftists were largely unknown in the United States until recent years, when America’s post-Occupy Wall Street far-left began adopting the name.

Antifa is well known for dozens of violent crimes against people they consider “fascists” on both sides of the Atlantic. As Breitbart News’s Ian Mason cataloged, to Antifa, “fascists” include “in no particular order”:

Trump supporters, other Trump supporters, members of Germany’s populist AfD party, a 20-year-old woman who chose to wear a Spanish-flag bracelet, a Philadelphia free speech rally, former UKIP and Brexit leader Nigel Farage, libertarian VICE News co-founder Gavin McInnes, French policemen, and Israeli-owned bookstores. Interesting, a Salafist Muslim who attacked a “filthy white” Antifa writer because he disrespected Islam does not qualify.

The organization has also been declared a domestic terrorist group by the New Jersey Department of Homeland Security.

A YouTube video shows that Walmart took down one t-shirt that attacked the fake news media with an edgy joke. But it continues to sell gear promoting a violent far-left domestic terrorist group.

The video wonders aloud how many people have been assaulted by Antifa this year.

Here’s one man’s story:

Does Walmart support this? Apparently so.

Breitbart added:

Walmart has come under previous criticism for selling “Black Lives Matter” shirts and other items. Following a request from the national Fraternal Order of Police, the retail giant eventually removed one of the items last December, shirts that said “Bulletproof,” but refused to remove the rest.

As with the “Black Lives Matter” paraphernalia, the Antifa products are being sold by a third party manufacturer, in this case, Tee Bangers, on Walmart’s website.

*UPDATE* Breitbart now reports Antifa gear is no longer available through Walmart’s website. I guess the public reaction was overwhelming
