Walmart SELLS OUT of ‘Duck Dynasty’ merchandise in mass show of support

The pressure is mounting on Walmart to comment on the “Duck Dynasty” controversy that has sparked national outrage.

But the retail giant is staying silent while it banks millions in sales from the TV clan’s merchandise.

Heated debates on everything from free speech rights to the Christian cleansing in America have dominated the news for days after the show’s patriarch, Phil Robertson, revealed  his personal views of homosexuality in a recent interview with GQ magazine. The popular cast member was suspended from the show by host network A&E for offending the gay and lesbian community.

On Wednesday, Forbes asked, Is Walmart and A&E’s $400 million dollar empire at stake?

The answer may be a resounding ‘no,’ based on screenshots the Daily Mail grabbed of Walmart’s online shopping page as seen below:

Mail Online reported:

Walmarts sells a huge array of Duck Dynasty merchandise- from T-shirts to camo bedding, posters, watches, toy trucks, camo chairs, clothing, jewellery and even bottle openers.

Today, as Phil Robertson’s close-knit family insisted they would not film the hit A&E show without him following his suspension by the network, fans tweeted they were rushing to Walmart.

However, others pointed out that this support merely puts more money into A&E’s pockets as well, with one tweeting: ‘Loving that Tea People are rushing to Walmart to Duck Dynasty swag in protest of A& who OWNS the merchandising.’

Another added: ‘I better rush off to Walmart and buy up all the Phil Robertson merchandise ‘cuz it’s gonna be a collectors item one day.’

Another tweet read: ‘Your stores may look quite vacant when you pull down the Duck Dynasty merch. May want to double down on the Honey Boo Boo.’

    I suggest we start calling our local Walmart stores to confirm this. The Walmart i work at still has plenty of Duck Dynasty merchandise.

  2. Peggy Scott says:

    Don’t buy duck dynasty products since A&E owns them…buy from Duck Commander which is owned by the Robertson’s

    PEOPLE!! STOP BUYING DUCK DYNASTY STUFF! YOU ARE HELPING A&E, NOT THE ROBERTSONS.. BUY DUCK COMMANDER STUFF TO SUPPORT THE ROBERTSON’S.. A&E OWNS DUCK DYNASTY.. THE ROBERTSON’S OWN DUCK COMMANDER!! WAKE UP PEOPLE.. PASS IT ON TO YOUR FRIENDS WHO ARE BUYING THE WRONG STUFF!!!

      incognito — you don’t have to shout. It doesn’t matter what you buy. You are just throwing your money away. What are you trying to do? Buy your way to righteousness?

    Is today’s liberalism really any different than its marxist, socialist, and communist ancestors?

    1. auntielib says:

      No, it sure doesn’t appear to be any different. It exhibits the same oppressive characteristics that its earlier ancestors did.

      1. Jacques Doucheteau says:

        Bold claim. Also completely false. First off, Marxism, Socialism, and Communism are three different things.

        Second, Liberalism is very different from any of them. Look up “Liberalism” in a dictionary before claiming you know everything about it.

        Third, Liberalism predates all three by over 300 years, and was the driving philosophy behind the American and French revolutions.

        Finally, saying it “exhibits the same oppressive characteristics” belittles those that we actually oppressed under Communist rule and just makes you look ignorant. One rich guy getting temporarily suspended from a TV show for breaking the Morals Clause of his contract is quite different than the millions that died under Stalinist dictatorships.

    Let me see. Walmart is headquarter in Rogers, Arkansas. Are they for or against “Red Necks”?
