Hoax of the day: Left claims Walmart heir expressed solidarity with strikers


Walmart has played footsie with the SEIU, Democrats and Soros operatives, but that did nothing to deter Big Labor from organizing a Black Friday walkout. As Michelle Malkin notes in her syndicated column today, “When you lie down with thugs, you get up with … more black eyes.”

Is Walmart heir Alice Walton trying a little more union appeasement on for size?

WHOA Alice Walton: “As a Walton, I cannot stomach the thought of our employees working for poverty wages” crystalbridgesfoundation.org

I was shocked when I learned of the working conditions at the company that bears our family’s name – Alice Waltoncrystalbridgesfoundation.org

Actually, that supposed expression of solidarity is a big ol’ hoax.

The Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, founded by Walton, will be open on Black Friday. And the statement from Walton that’s being passed around social media appears on crystalbridgesfoundation.com, a site reportedly unaffiliated with the museum. A museum spokesperson says the quotes attributed to Walton are false.

Of course, that’s not stopping the Left’s union pushers from giddily celebrating Walton’s supposed show of solidarity.

@wwunited @workingwa Is that Walmart heir/black Fri post true? Wish so, but source fishy. Not listed on News page it links to; diff URL too

— Elisa Coghlan (@asile) November 22, 2012

If the source looks fishy, that’s because it is fishy. But, you know, Google is hard.

IF IT SEEMS 2 GOOD 2 B TRUE, IT IS Alice Walton Isn’t Closing Her Museum in Sympathy With Walmart Workers betabeat.com/?p=71253 via @betabeat
