2016 has been quite the year for America, hasn’t it?
We have lived through the loss of life through terror attacks, both foreign and domestic. We have watch an over-powerful administration tell schools to how to feed our children and how to open bathrooms wide for transgenders. We have been alienated and ostracized by the far-left, namely, objectified and labeled according to race, gender, and so on in order to be calculated in a specified demographic for voting purposes.
To top it all off, we have seen the horrific deaths between police and their communities. Near my quaint, Mayberry-style suburb, we lost two officers this past October, and as the truth behind these murders emerge, the shock waves continue to ripple. But such an unnecessary schism has been created, because the liberals have gone out of their way to politicize every incident, without seeking the facts or truth first. It’s gone so far that even corporate America was taking an active role in profiting from these events.
But we can now see a glimmer of light at the end of 2016. Thanks to the National Fraternal Order of Police, their letter requesting that Walmart’s Black Lives Matter merchandise be removed, was read, and Walmart removed the controversial materials!
From Conservative Tribune:
It recently came to light that Walmart was selling Black Lives Matter movement apparel on its website, including a shirt and hoodie which read “BULLETPROOF,” prompting a denouncement and request for removal of the item by the National Fraternal Order of Police, which accused Walmart of “profiting from racial division.”
Apparently Walmart was listening, as it issued a statement shortly thereafter announcing that the item in question would no longer be sold on its website.
According to Fortune, an emailed statement from the retail giant read: “Like other online retailers, we have a marketplace with millions of items offered by third parties that includes Blue Lives Matter, Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter merchandise. After hearing concerns from customers, we are removing the specific item with the ‘bulletproof’ reference.”
If corporations such as Walmart can understand their mistake and correct it, why can’t the Democrats? That is a debate for another day.
So despite all of this setbacks this year that go against everything our Founding Fathers intended for our country, we are able to hold on to the hope that this tiny spark of respect and communication brings everyone together in their communities.
Let us all choose unification over division.
