Now you have another reason to boycott Wal-Mart – they run a secret intelligence organization that illegally spies on employees, critics, journalists, union organizers and anyone else they deem a potential threat to their enormous sweat-shop profits.
The facts were brought to light by recently fired Wal-Mart employee Bruce Gabbard when he spilled the beans about the operation to The Wall Street Journal.
Wal-Mart claims that it fired Bruce Gabbard for recording phone calls and intercepting pager messages – exactly what he was paid to do.
Wal-Mart has one of the world’s most powerful corporate security operations, headed up by Kenneth Senser, a former senior CIA and FBI official and another FBI veteran, Joseph Lewis, who is head of corporate investigations under Senser. Together they target any individual that might shed light on Wal-Mart’s misdeeds or threaten its continued expansion.
Instead of being a good corporate citizen and paying fair wages, Wal-Mart acts like a fascist empire and pursues profits at any price. It continually faces lawsuits for gender and racial discrimination and labor law violations.
Americans shop at Wal-Mart because it is cheaper and more convenient. Yet, America is paying dearly for those seemingly low prices.
– Taxpayers pay billions in extra social costs due to Wal-Mart’s ultra-low wages. With over a million people now homeless in America what is the true cost of supporting corporate greed? The next job that is lost may be yours.
– Wal-Mart supports war criminal Bush and gang and helps keep the thugs in power. How much is your freedom and liberty worth. Are you really willing to accept a fascist govt. in exchange for cheap crap from Wal-Mart? What are the lives of Bush’s victims worth? The Bush family is responsible for millions of Iraqi deaths. Do you really want to support a company that supports war criminals?
– Wal-Mart is responsible for giving China enough financial power to pose a grave threat to the US. China could collapse the US economy in a day by simply selling a percentage of its US dollars at once. With a trillion dollars in investment capital China could also simply buy up much of the US. Do you really want the Chinese military to own or destroy your country?
-The company repeatedly violates environmental laws and pollutes the environment. Despite Wal-Mart’s very few postive environmental programs, it still reaps massive harm on our planet and actively supports the most destructive and vile companies. Don’t you want to live in a clean and safe environment? Don’t you want future generations to be able to live?
-Wal-Mart actively supports other corporate criminals by selling only their products. When Gillette was eagerly torturing small animals in useless ‘animal testing’ and the world decided to boycott the company’s products, Wal-Mart came to Gillette’s rescue and bumped most of its competitors off the shelf to ensure that the boycott would have minimal impact. Wal-Mart chooses suppliers who are the worst of the worst corporate criminals and refuses to offer customers good products from good companies.
The simple fact is that Wal-Mart uses its power to do harm. It is an evil corporation and if you shop there you are supporting the Wal-Mart agenda. Wal-Mart can’t exist without customers.
Make the world a better place, shop smart and shop with your heart and mind. And shop a lot less. Most of what Americans buy is not really needed.
