This is one of those stories that will make your blood boil. A man by the name of Lee Young posted a story about the double standards that this Walmart store had for their Veteran employee and their Muslim employee.
The story has already been shared more than 84,000 times on Facebook.
He talks about a greeter at Walmart who had adorned his hat with his military pins:
So for the past however long I can remember there has been a older gentleman by the name of Val who is a greeter at Walmart. This man is a Veteran and very proud to be. You don’t need to know him or even speak to him, although I thank him for his service every time I see him, because he illustrates his pride through the highly decorated Veteran baseball cap he wears……or….used to wear.
But that all changed one day:
One day I as I walked in I noticed a bright blue Walmart hat on his head with all the military pins that once adorned his wore out faded military cap and I asked him about it. We both had tears in our eyes as I wished him a blessed day and shook his hand before I left. His reply was simple and full of hurt, “corporate will not allow me to wear that hat anymore while on the clock, because it goes against the dress code”. I was so furious that I demanded to talk to a manager that day and I’m sure she will never forget my face or the angry words that I shared with her.
To his surprise, here’s what he saw at that very same Walmart:
Since then I try not to ever shop at Walmart unless there is no other choice. Today was one of them days that I needed something and stopped into the Okemos Walmart. As I’m standing in line to pay this woman in her Walmart vest steps into line behind me and immediately I was outraged! So one of our own who signed his life away to protect our freedoms and homeland cannot wear his simple old hat but this woman can wear a headscarf proclaiming her love of the Muslim culture and her dedication to Allah!? Kiss my ass Walmart!!!!
If you don’t think that there are double standards in our society when it comes to preferring Muslims over our vets, think again. You can see the full Facebook post below…
