Stop Islamic demands from being forced on US Citizens!


It recently, has been brought to our attention through social media, that a Walmart store in Ohio has agreed to slaughter animals in a specific way in order to accommodate Islamic demands. THIS IS AMERICA. We do not bow to the demands of other countries, and we are tired of the expectations that we SHOULD! We want Walmart to know that if they cave under the pressure of sharia law, your bread and butter, AMERICANS, will take their business elsewhere. If your worried about your bottom line, worry about that!
