Hoax of the day: Left claims Walmart heir Alice Walton is closing her museum in 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?

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.

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

      You got that right. They still think adding 30 million people to health care, not making allowances for Doctor shortages, forcing companies to increase coverage and lower what they charge will make health care cheaper and of a higher quality.

    Liberals are so gullible? Unskewed polls anybody? Winning elections and gullible sounds fine to me.

      Yep, and cheap money & no jobs sounds fine to you too.
      Thanks for the demonstration on just how stupid one needs to be to support Obama — unfortunately the stupid outnumber the rest of us by ~1% — but don’t worry about us, we’re the smart ones, we can take care of ourselves, You, OTOH, are getting ready to meet a world of hurt.

        You can barely write in English. Maybe go to school before you post things you don’t understand online. That would be a good start. And trust me, if they measured the IQ of people on your side of the political fence it would be lower than ours — but that would be fine with you since your pride yourselves on being ignorant. FYI, everybody knew this was a hoax. The point of posting it was to embarrass Alice Walton. Now I’ll go wash my hands because typing these things to you has made them noxious. Obama won btw, Why don’t you just off yourself? You’d do the rest of us a favor and you’d be out of your misery.

    Gullible liberal loons. This is exactly why we have Bonco Bamma infesting the White House with his ghetto family of free loaders.

    Those people in favor of the Walmart Strike are people who don’t believe in hard work or getting paid due to your skill level. Amateurs. Liberals are so laughably gullible. They’re a joke unto themselves.
