Gateway Pundit reports that patriotic activists in the St. Louis area are sponsoring a "buycott" of their local Whole Foods grocery store on Tuesday, September 1. St. Louis area blogger Dana Lesch further reports that a Dallas buycott will also take place on September 1.
What is a buycott? Simply buy your groceries at Whole Foods to demonstrate support. Several weeks ago, Whole Foods CEO John Mackey wrote an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal that caused Leftwing Statists to call for a boycott of his chain. Since then, the call has gone out for Patriots to shop at Whole Foods to show support for a CEO who has ideas for creative, free market solutions to improve America's health care system.
Now, the National Tea Party Coalition has created a separate web site to promote Whole Foods Buycotts across the country. They encourage others to set up Whole Foods Buycotts. Hopefully, the month of September will be great for the company and a kick in the nether regions for the Leftist hordes who hoped to damage John Mackey because he supports individual liberty.
Unfortunately, there is no Whole Foods in my neck of the woods. I think the closest are two hours east and two hours south. If you are also out of range for a Whole Foods Buycott event, you can order a gift card and send it to a friend who lives in a Whole Foods city. That suggestion comes from the St. Louis Tea Party. Let's support this brave CEO and his company against the Leftist attack machine.
