Nothing quite scares the ignorant like a good story about how the niggers are coming for their guns, women and whiskey. And the people who want to scare the ignorant somehow believe that they can be best found at a Walmart. Radio Revolution blasted this headline yesterday:
Ammo rationing at Wal-Mart as panic buying sweeps US
There's one teeny, tiny problem, however. Nowhere in the story is Walmart mentioned. So why is it in the headline? See above. (And it's not just Revolution Radio, just Google Walmart Ammo Shortage.) The story is a rehash of one that appeared in the Los Angeles Times back in August. Not unsurprisingly, the LA Times doesn't mention Walmart at all. So why the panic? Remember what December 1999 was like as the ignorant scarfed up food stocks and other necessities in preparation for the end-of-the-world-as-they-knew-it at midnight on December 31st? The same applies here. I also expect that there is more than a little self-fulfilling prophecy here. If I'm the kind of person who might be concerned that the niggers are coming for my guns, women and whiskey and I see a headline that screams Walmart is rationing ammunition, then I might be inclined to go down and buy as many boxes as I can before they're all gone.
