Don't they understand that fluffy, frosted cake symbolizes the imperialistic killing machine of the capitalist West?
Little Jimmy's birthday party theme was... unsettling this year. (via Chuck Netzhammer)
Chuck Netzhammer, a resident of Slidell, Louisiana, went to Walmart to have a cake printed with the words "Heritage Not Hate" superimposed on a Confederate flag, because America. Walmart denied his request. A few days later, he returned and requested a cake with the ISIS flag printed on it. They complied to his request. Chuck made a 2-minute long YouTube video about the incident, with the paperwork and cake to back up his evidence. As a self-proclaimed loyal customer, he wanted to make a point about the political hypocrisy of Walmart's bakery department. I should also mention that he delivered the first part of his complaint from his dirt bike.

Ridiculously clear flag debates aside, I think another important question we have to ask here is did Chuck eat the cake?! Don't get me wrong, ISIS is terrible, but so is wasting cake. Is it more ethical if he scraped off the flag? It's a truly confounding moral inquiry.
Walmart responded by apologized for the incident with the following statement:
An associate in a local store did not know what the design meant and made a mistake. The cake should not have been made and we apologize.
Sadly, this is not the only ridiculous ISIS flag-related news item today.
