Just another sign that America as a whole has no friggin clue-
Walmart is apologizing for baking a cake decorated with the flag of the so-called Islamic State after a Louisiana employee of the retail chain had refused to make a cake with a Confederate flag on it.
Chuck Netzhammer went to a Walmart in Slidell, Louisiana last week to get a personalized cake with a Confederate flag on it and the slogan “Heritage Not Hate.” The retailer, however, had just announced it would stop selling Confederate flag merchandise in response to the Charleston church shooting, so the store refused to bake the cake for Netzhammer.
In response to the denial, Netzhammer then placed an order for another sheet cake — this time with the black and white flag brandished by the so-called Islamic State, also known as ISIS.
“I went back yesterday and managed to get an ISIS battle flag printed. ISIS happens to be somebody who we’re fighting against right now, who are killing our men and boys overseas and are beheading Christians,” he told ABC News.
Netzhammer uploaded video footage of the cake on YouTube, where he points out that while you can no longer buy a Dukes of Hazard General Lee car with a Confederate flag on it at the chain, a customer can purchase a sheet cake with an “ISIS battle flag” on it.
