Wal-Mart pulls T-shirts with Nazi imagery

Skull_1 In 2004, Wal-Mart got in trouble with the Anti-Defamation League for selling the notorious anti-Semitic text The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. In 2005, the company used Nazi era imagery to fight an “anti-big box” measure in Flagstaff, Ari. Until today, it looked as though Wal-Mart’s 2006 might be relatively Nazi-free. But now, a blog called Bent Corner has exposed Wal-Mart for selling a T-shirt with the image shown here—which is the death’s head worn by the members of the German Nazi SS. Within minutes, Wal-Mart apologized and pledged to remove the shirts from its stores. They seem to be realizing that the Nazi theme is so yesterday. Via Consumerist.
