Businesses that openly display an endorsement of anti-American anarchy and chaos must be made to pay a heavy price for their foolishness. You can tweet Men's Wearhouse (@Mens_Wearhouse) and tell them what you think.
Until such time as CEO George Zimmer (whose annual salary exceeds $956,000, if you're counting) repudiates this stupidity, we will never spend another dime in any of their stores.
We guarantee it.
SooperMexican has a teriffic post on the Men's Wearhouse story here.
The Prudence Paine Papers has a great follow-up piece on this story here. Among her findings:
- Men’s Wearhouse does not have franchises. The Oakland store is corporate-owned.
- In 2009, the company removed its ads from the Glenn Beck show on Fox News.
- Men’s Wearhouse has now released a statement on their Facebook page. It reads in full:
We closed our store near Oakland City Hall today, for one day, to express the company’s concern for the issue of wealth disparity in our country. The issue affects our employees and customers across the political spectrum.UPDATE 2
After "Occupy Oakland" degenerates turned violent overnight, the Men's Wearhouse staff returned to their store to find that "solidarity" does NOT mean "immunity."
