White liberals, many of whom buy their yogurt, raisin toast, skim milk and other assorted "healthy" stuff that most Americans can't afford at the popular Whole Foods chain of grocery stores, are angry with Whole Foods CEO John Mackey for daring to express his opinion in an op-ed and oppose ObamaCare. White elitists are so upset at Mackey they've started a boycott at their favorite grocery store:
Once again liberals reveal themselves for the bullies they truly are--any wonder more and more people around the country are opposing ObamaCare? First of all, who cares what the CEO of grocery store chain thinks about healthcare? And even if you disagree with him, he has a right to his opinion. Secondly, living here in NYC, I can say that I've visited Whole Foods in the past and let me say that each spot is like a mega-store now, what with aisles and aisles of food, thousands of people coming in and out and a shitload of employees working hard, all ready to meet your needs--employees who happen to mostly be young minorities. Minorities who not only have jobs, but quality healthcare, which Whole Foods has long been noted for providing its employees.
A Facebook group formed to boycott Whole Foods grocery stores has drawn 16,000 members and is growing rapidly, the Chicago Tribune reports.
USA TODAY intern Lara Seligman did some checking and learned that on Aug. 12, John Mackey, CEO and co-founder of Whole Foods, wrote an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal comparing President Obama’s plans to overhaul the nation’s health care program to socialism.
“We are all responsible for our own lives and our own health,” Mackey wrote. “We should take that responsibility very seriously and use our freedom to make wise lifestyle choices that will protect our health.”
The Facebook group is urging a boycott of Whole Foods stores until Mackey issues a full apology. The group says Mackey’s op-ed is “suggesting that health care is a commodity that only the rich, like him, deserve.”
The group says its mission is to let Whole Foods know that customers’ money will “no longer go to support Whole Foods’ anti-union, anti-health insurance reform, right-wing activities."
John Mackey opposes ObamaCare and good for him. But nowhere is it written that he wants to implement any changes in the coverage to his employees at Whole Foods. And shouldn't that be most important to the loons on the Left? After all, boycotting Whole Fooods could lead to less profits, which in turn could cost people their jobs. Too bad the Obama stans are too caught up in their hate for opposition to see the big picture.
