Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

It's a rare person who has any business criticizing anyone for shopping at Walmart [View all]

If you buy a product from any vendor who also sells products at Walmart, then you have no business criticizing a consumer who shops at Walmart. By patronizing the vendor who sells at Walmart, you are endorsing that practice.

There are plenty of good reasons not to shop at Walmart, but many people simply lack viable options. Sure, they can get most of the same merchandise if they're willing/able to buy online, or if they can drive all over creation, or if they're willing/able to pay 10% to 25% more for whatever it is they're buying.

Beating up on people who shop at Walmart is, in practice, simply another way to attack the poor. We don't like it when the GOP does it, so we shouldn't do it ourselves, either.
