Keeping saying it. Don’t stop, or else you’ll be added to the naughty list: Diversity is our greatest strength.

Just keep saying it and repeating it until you finally believe the healing power of this five word sentence. [Walmart pulls guns and ammo from store displays, citing potential “civil unrest,” CBS News, October 30, 2020]:

Walmart on Thursday said it has pulled guns and ammunition from the sales floors of its U.S. stores as it seeks to keep firearms from being stolen should social unrest erupt.

“We have seen some isolated civil unrest, and as we have done on several occasions over the last few years, we have moved our firearms and ammunition off the sales floor as a precaution for the safety of our associates and customers,” a Walmart spokesperson said in an email to CBS MoneyWatch. “These items do remain available for purchase by customers.”

The company in June removed firearms and ammunition from stores after George Floyd’s killing by police when several of its stores were damaged.

The nation’s biggest retailer remains a major seller of guns and ammunition, although it has scaled back, selling firearms in roughly half of its 4,700 U.S. stores.

Walmart stopped selling ammunition that can be used in semiautomatic rifles and handguns after a 2019 shooting at one of its stores in El Paso, Texas, killed 23 people. The company stopped selling assault-style weapons in 2015 and raised the minimum age to buy firearms and ammunition to 21, from 18, in 2018. It stopped selling handguns everywhere but in Alaska in 1993, and ended its sales of rifles like the AR-15 in 2015.

Consumer demand for firearms has jumped this year. The National Shooting Sports Foundation, an industry trade group, estimates there were a record 12.1 million background checks for gun purchases from January through July, up nearly 72% from 7.1 million gun checks in the year-ago period.

Forty percent of firearms sales involves purchasers who’d never owned a gun, according to a NSSF survey of firearm retailers. It concludes that almost 5 million Americans bought a gun for the first time in 2020.

We must all become Winston Smith, and just admit the truth behind the statement and state unequivocally, “Diversity is our greatest strength.” We must win the victory over ourselves, right? Will just two gin-scented tears trickling down the sides of our noses suffice?

But note firearms sales have set a new record this year, all during a time period where Walmart has decided to pulls guns and ammo from every store across America.

Nevertheless, “Diversity is our greatest strength.”

  1. Here we go again with this social unrest bs. In plain English, it’s nigs gotta nig, it’s what they do because they are natural born thieves and predators.
    Perhaps Wal-Mart needs to up the ante, 100 million is not enough. Believe me, they get a tiny portion of my money.

    They used to get a small amount of mine. Since they bowed to the subhumans I will never set foot in one of their stores again. They deserve what they're getting, like a lot of others.

    In a fully functioning White society,i.e. 1950s America, it was common and acceptable to see shotguns visible in truck gun racks------at schools. These guns weren't viewed as a threat. It was just every day life during hunting season.

  2. On one hand, since a lot of Walmarts are getting looted, I’d say this was sensible precaution against looters getting armed via looting.

    On the other hand, my impression is that the urban Walmarts that are getting looted didn’t usually carry guns and ammo in the first place, so pulling arms from all stores ends up depriving the rural Reds of self-defense.

    On the third hand, they were mostly sold out already anyway.

  3. Diversity is not OUR greatest strength–it is (((THEIR))) greatest strength.

    • Agree: Cauchemar du Singe
  4. The local gun stores have resorted to sinking concrete pilings around the building perimeter to prevent late night firearm acquisitions. Diversity = San Salvador rising

  5. “Diversity” just means fewer and fewer white people. Ultimately the ideal diversity situation means no more white people anywhere.

    If we think otherwise, because the thought is too uncomfortable or unnerving, we’re only kidding ourselves about where this road leads and the plans others have for us.

    Well, I was wrong. MU does not currently have 32 diversity officers. Nope. They have – believe it or not – 93 full-time such staff.

    https://www.worldtribune.com/university-of-michigan-employs-93-full-time-well-paid-diversity-officials/

    The total payroll for this small army of “diversicrats” is $8.4 million.
    Topping the list is Robert Sellers, whose title is “Vice Provost for Equity and Inclusion & Chief Diversity Officer”. Sellers makes $396,550 per year.

    And, consider that these free-loading phony watchdogs are being paid big money out of tuition from the very students they label as oppressors or “privileged,” and/or possibly from government funds, which means us.
    The talons are dug deeply into the psyche of this country, affecting the most impressionable, and it will take more than voting to restore our country to what it was meant to be.

  7. Walmart has decided to pulls guns and ammo from every store across America.

    That’s not what I read. They’ve removed them from the sales floor. Very sensible, given the risk of looting. Keep them in the safe.

    If you don’t already have enough guns and ammo (you don’t), it’s probably too late now, anyway. Also food. And toilet paper. I’m starting to get seriously worried about my family in America.

    I was privileged to be in America for the 2016 election. That was high drama. 2020 is farce, with potential for tragedy. Can you imagine, President ,la (“the comma don’t be silent”) Harris?

    I watched the Tucker Carlson/Tony Bobulinski interview with interest. He struck me as a typical used car salesman. Maybe that’s just how rich people are, I don’t know; but watching the Dems screaming “Fake!”, I almost wish it is a set-up. Because that would indicate that someone is at last starting to fight back, and apparently very competently, too. I don’t think they will be able to dodge this one very easily.

    The puzzling thing is, why they left it so late? Some interesting speculation on that here on Unz:

  8. When you add all the new guns sold to those already in possession, if that is even possible, and the lid of the powder keg is lifted, it’s going to be one hell of a turkey shoot. I’m just glad that I’ll be watching from the other side of the world. Well out of range.

  10. It’s funny how they make it seem like there’s going to be Trump supporters looting and burning down stores if he loses, however, I think they’re starting to see the Red Wave and preparing accordingly.

    OT: I thought it was fitting that someone was honking a clown horn at the Biden rally in MN haha!

  11. Diversity will be our downfall. Not a strength.
    So damn glad we acquired what we need over the last 3,4-5 decades. All the way up to a couple years ago. If folks are looking to Walmart for self defense and the protection of their family…. well I feel sorry for them.

    • Agree: Sick 'n Tired
  12. my impression is that the urban Walmarts that are getting looted didn’t usually carry guns and ammo in the first place, so pulling arms from all stores ends up depriving the rural Reds of self-defense

    But this is the general policy for decades:
    when urban gun crime soars due to inner city blacks using illegal pistols–point to the countryside whites with legal rifles, and claim that this is in fact the problem, and taking away the legal rifles of the countryside whites will fix inner city urban gun crime.

    So while I have no info that Wallmart is in any way part of this; I’ll just point out that the warped logic on guns and violence has been at play since forever.

  13. I think diversity of guns and ammo availability is our greatest strength.

    • LOL: AR in Illinois
  14. Need to do an update. Wally World reversed this decision and put the firearms back on the floor.

  15. Sigh.. I guess the idea of making it too difficult, and painful to loot has never occured to these people. I’m still trying to pinpoint the moment we slipped through the surly bonds of civilized behavior into whatever the f**k is happening now. I reckon at some point these terrorist low lifes will push good men past a point where things finally get so uncomfortable that life threatening action will finally become reasonable in our minds. Clearly they don’t have any fear of anything now thanks to the people in power that have deemed it blasphemy to punish these things. Maybe it’s they that need to be dealt with first, and not by simply voting them out.

  17. Walmart is a business and will always conform to societal trends, no matter how insane. Eff them, support your local gun stores.

    You can have a functioning society or you can have orcs, NEVER BOTH.

  18. I can understand why Walmart would do this. Looting their stores has become a new welfare supplement for the Negro urban underclass. Negroes have a chimp-like fascination with firearms. They don’t know how to use them and are terrible marksmen but they love the flashes and loud noises they make. They also seem to enjoy shooting one another. This would be a harmless pastime if only they didn’t cause so much collateral damage while indulging it.

    OTOH, small firearms dealers know exactly how to deal with looters, arsonists, and other thugs. They get together a posse and stand outside their stores armed to the teeth and promising to shoot anyone who looks at them the wrong way. The best thing local officials could do would be to promise that no store owners, who shoot vandals, looters and arsonists, will be harassed by the police or prosecutors. Unfortunately local prog officials seem to take the opposite tack, harassing shop owners who defend themselves and refusing to arrest, prosecute and punish even the most egregious vandals, looters and arsonists.

    Anarcho-tyranny has now arrived in full force. https://www.chroniclesmagazine.org/blog/anarcho-tyranny-2020/

  19. Second posting

    Likely, not their own call.

    ATF or the state police probably walked in and had them removed.

    Dealers can’t just decide to move firearms ‘off site’… store them in their garage or closet temporarily… leave them in their car trunk…

    No, this sounds like they are planning for the inevitable.

    Since no one will be allowed to interfere once the mayhem begins, all the grown up stuff has to be put away beforehand.

  27. I’ve been busy getting my last minute preps in and haven’t been able to comment the last few months. Canned/dried food, fire protection, batteries and medical supplies. I’m sorry but who is trying to buy firearms and ammo at the last minute at WalMart? Nobody at this blog I can guarantee. The people who post here are some of the most level-headed and pragmatic people on the internet. I’m sure they learned to stock up when the prices were low and the selection was high. Remember: 2 is 1 and 1 is none…and also: 13% equals 90%.
