I have long argued that there was something shady about Wal-Mart, and now we know what it is. The headline in the Spokesman-Review (Aug. 25) says it all: 'Wal-Mart opens Communist branch.' While Wal-Mart has long pretended to be a reactionary, anti-worker corporation that does everything within and beyond the law to stop unions from forming among its 'associates,' the opening of a communist party office in one of its stores in China reveals the company’s true colors — red all over (and I don’t mean Republican red).I have said, more than once, while on The PES that PARD is using the kitchen-sink argument style. They are throwing everything but the kitchen sink at this issue hoping that some of the arguments will stick.
Wal-Mart is clearly a communist front organization that pays its workers so poorly, gives them such lousy benefits, and tries hard to make sure they quit before they get much advancement, in a transparent attempt to stir up class agitation in America. Pullman must fight to keep this creeping communism out of our town. The true Wal-Mart is the Chinese Wal-Mart with unions and communist party offices. We need to support living-wage laws, moderate unions and other reforms to keep these Wal-Mart communists from succeeding with their dastardly plan to impoverish U.S. workers into revolution!
But now we have gotten the kitchen sink. Reed argues that WalMart is Communist?!? I guess that is supposed to make us real Red-Blooded Americans become anti-WalMart.
I feel bad that I even tried to reason with this group. The above letter to the editor is proof that there is no way anyone who is a rational, logical, and thinking person can comprehend what PARD is trying to support.
