I received an e-mail today that I want to support and to add Dare To Dream’s voice in spreading the word.

As most DTD readers know, we don’t condone the “storm trooper” behavior of  the Lord Haw Haws of Fox News and especially that of Glenn Beck.

Thank you Katie for letting us know that Wal-Mart was also a major advertiser with Beck, for this was info we were not aware.

Dear Friend,

Barack Obama “has exposed himself as a guy… who has a deep seeded hatred for white people or the white culture.”  “This guy, I believe, is a racist.”

This is the kind of drivel Glenn Beck has been spewing lately.  We know.  We know.  Not much that comes out of the Fox News host’s mouth surprises you anymore, but guess what: Glenn Beck’s hate speech is being sponsored by, you got it, Walmart.

Other major advertisers (i.e. Geico, Proctor and Gamble, and Lexis Nexis) are pulling their ads from Glenn Beck’s show in response to his disgraceful rhetoric.  Not Walmart.  We think it’s time for that to change.

Join the fight to end Walmart’s financial support of Glenn Beck’s televised hate.  Tell Bentonville that you demand Walmart pull its ad dollars from Glenn Beck’s show right now.

Send a letter toWalmart executives denouncing their financial support of hate speech

Walmart has inserted itself into the public discourse on everything from health care to the environment. Because of Walmart’s size, its messages reach many.  But, with great power comes great responsibility.

It is imperative that Walmart takes a stand against hateful and extreme rhetoric, and they can start by pulling their financial support of it.  Other major advertisers have already taken the lead: it’s time for Walmart to step up and do the right thing.

Write Walmart today: help kick racism and hate speech off the airwaves
