Walmart ruins kids wanting to pay tribute to 9/11 victims.

I haven't seen so much negative karma of a big chain store like this ever.An elementary school in Florida had made arrangements with a local Walmart that school officials their wanted the kids to go out into the community and pay tribute to the victims of 9/11 by singing "God Bless America" to Walmart patrons.When they showed up at the Walmart and manager in charge had told the teachers and the parents that accompanied the students that the person that had ok'ed the kids performance was fired.The new manager said the kids were a liability.The whole group was told to leave or the cops would be called.The teachers and parents were upset and decided that if they couldn't sing inside the store that the best thing to do would be to have the kids sing "God Bless America" outside under an American flag at a flag pole that was at half mast.The manager had called the police already and they showed up as the kids had finished singing.The cops were upset with Walmart that they had to be called out in the first place.They didn't think it was a police matter.After all the negative press a spokesman at Walmart headquarters has vowed to allow the kids back saying that it was a communications error on their part.Once again a business in the business that relies on the public for it's existence sure does make it in the news headlines for all the wrong reasons.

    It's the same unpatriotic crap that's spreading through the country. Like the kid's who were told they couldn't wear red white and blue clothing on May 5th because it might offend some Mexican or the school official in Oregon who believes a Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwich is an example of 'white privilege' and is offensive to students from other cultures. Not to mention the tenants in the apartment building in Florida this past year who were told they couldn't fly the American flag outside their units. People need to stand up and take the country back from the scum bag cry baby liberals who promote this propaganda including all the FFRF BS.

    They cater to everyone, even those who don't believe in 'god'. Similar to if there were people campaigning for a presidential candidate or something on their doorstep.

    They may want spend some of the billions that they make on positive PR then because they have been in the news for lots of the wrong reasons.
