Update:  Blame the associate for not knowing that this was the ISIS flag.  Sure…and I saw pigs fly this morning.  Walmart, you aren’t fooling us.  We know that this is all about your bottom line.  What is pc and not pc will be and shall always be dictated by those in the management positions.

A spokesman for Walmart told ABC News, “An associate in a local store did not know what the design meant and made a mistake. The cake should not have been made and we apologize.”

“That’s an ISIS battleflag cake that anybody can go buy at Walmart,” Netzhammer explains in a video posted on YouTube showing the sheetcake. “But you can’t buy a Confederate flag toy, with like, say, a ‘Dukes of Hazzards’ car.”

It’s not the symbol, it’s what is in the heart.

In a YouTube video posted Friday, Chuck Netzhammer says a Walmart in Slidell, Louisiana, refused to create a cake with a Confederate battle flag that included the phrase, “Heritage, not hate.” The store refused to make the cake, he said. But, he added, the same store had no problem making a cake with the black ISIS flag.
