I have no argument with that. It is what I have said all along.

You may have missed my point. Why does it matter that Wal-Mart buys the shirt from someone else vrs Wal-Mart having the shirt produced by their own hand?

WHY DOES THAT MATTER?

".

I say don't boycott the store because they sell a product with which you disagree,, just don't buy the product.

I bet Wal*Mart will go for the 'ol "We use outside sources for that stuff! Don't blame us for not overseeing it!"...

Walmart Facing Boycott Threats Over 'Impeach 45' Shirt

I'm sure the defense will be "They sell positive stuff for Trump, so this is okay"...

...as of there were anti-Obama stuff sold along with the pro-Obama stuff they still sell...
Walmart caved before I could get one. dammit

it doesn't take t shirts for me not to want to shop there. It's too big, I can't find what I want unless I hike the north forty, and I always go away feeling a mixture of sorry for half of the staff and pizzed off at the rest of em. not enjoyable or even cheap anymore imho

another issue for me here that's just odd (or sad) is what people get so highly offended about that they are ready to boycott.
And what they aren't offended by... or even willing to acknowledge.

But T-Shirts that mocks a president and calls for impeachment is considered a grave unbearable offense.
seriously? snowflakes on the left and on the right is what i see.

the sad thing about it is the folks on the right claim to be the tough guys.
Plus In nearly every cases of name calling or negative image going OUT from the right they claim people shouldn't be so sensitive. No matter how low, vile or even racist it is.
("everybody has to deal with crap" is one of the dismissive justifications and advise given out when others claim offense.)

And Trump as president has tweeted nasty personal and political crap WORLD WIDE about his political rivals... and "friends"... nearly every other day since elected...and BEFORE.
But an "Impeach Trump" T-shirt" at Wal-Mart next to M.A.G.A. paraphernalia is to much to bear for some of his supporters.
It' would be laughable if it wasn't so hypocritical.

The thing is ...
There's a big difference between a few on the right trying to get people to boycott from a boycott of any seriousness actually HAPPENING. It means squat that the calls of some for a boycott tends to make the news. My experience is that most on the right tend to 'live and let live' and would be ok with both pro AND anti Trump apparel to be sold at a place. So my prediction is that few on the right will bother to boycott, for that reason.
Contrast that to the left's Chick-fil-a boycott a few years ago which actually got a lot of traction from the left, because the left CAN'T abide other views. The only reason it didn't work is that more people on the right took up the slack and started going to Chick-fil-a as a reaction to the left's boycott and so Chick-fil-a came out fine.
