So, for whatever reason, DHS is asking Walmart shoppers to be alert for terrorism, or, as the DHS explains the partnership on their website, “to help the American public play an active role in ensuring the safety and security of our nation.” The campaign is named, “If you see something, say something,” and will be in nearly 600 Walmart stores nationwide by the end of the month. Here’s what Secretary Napolitano says, in part, to shoppers on video screens at checkout:
“If you see something suspicious in the parking lot or in the store, say something immediately. Report suspicious activity to your local police or sheriff. If you need help ask a WalMart manager for assistance.” (see video here)
In the true spirit of the “safety and security of our nation,” it would be funny if Walmart shoppers and employees reported Walmart for only selling things made in China, for the low wages they pay, their anti-union stance, and for closing numerous small businesses across the land.
But, really. DHS is aware of who shops at Walmart, right?
