Internet Calls For Boycott of Sears And Kmart Over ‘Ashli Babbit American Patriot’ T-Shirt

Social media users are calling to boycott Sears and Kmart over a shirt being sold on their respective marketplaces that depict deceased January 6th Capital rioter Ashli Babbitt as an “American Patriot.”

“Holy Not Okay, @sears & @kmart,” wrote Hill Reporter Tara Dublin. “I know you cater to the lowest common denominators, but this is abhorrent. Can anyone try to be better, or have we all given up as a society? JFC.”

“Welp, no Sears, and Kmart for me. Ashli Babbitt was a traitor. Deluded, perhaps. Naive, sure. Stupid, hard to argue. But she stormed the U.S. Capitol, menacing U.S. congresspeople, destroying property, challenging democracy and the rule of law.” WaPo columnist Gene Weingarten added

Babbitt was a 35-year-old Air Force veteran who was shot in the shoulder by a Capitol Police officer as she was attempting to climb through a shattered window on a barricaded door on January 6. She later died from the wound. 

The Justice Department investigated her death and declined to charge the officer who fatally shot her, who claimed he “didn’t have a choice,” to do anything other than discharge his weapon.

The t-shirt features a distressed American flag with Babbitt’s name on top and “American Patriot” below it. Reporter Aaron Rupar tweeted about the shirt, which has been sold on Kmart and Sears’ marketplaces since January by a third-party merchandiser. The shirt is not merchandised by either retailer, which are both owned by Sears Holdings Corporation.

Sears replied to Rupar’s tweet the same day and said that the item has been removed from their website. In a statement, they announced that it was taken off of the Kmart marketplace as well.  

“Would say boycott Kmart and Sears but they appear to be going bankrupt plus there are no stores around me so they appear to be boycotting themselves,” one tweeter snarked.

THEY CHOSE TO SHOOT HER BECAUSE SHE WAS A WHITE VETERAN OF THE AIR FORCE AND NOT SOME TERRORIST OF THE AMERICAN COUNTRY LIKE BLM. THE LET THEM BURN DOWN CITIES AND JUST BLOW IT OFF AS “BLACKS WILL BE BLACKS WHEN THEY DON;T GET THEIR WAY OR WANTS”

For a totally different reason, I think it is disrespectful to sell this “T” shirt (her family did not approve it nor do they receive any proceeds). But, I think she was murdered in cold blood.

Couldn’t agree more. A tragedy, the guy who shot her should no longer be on the force, he saw no weapons’, had no reason to kill.

The latest released video this week, shows Ashli walking through the doors & she was never crawling through a broken glass window. The capital police removed barricades & allowed people to enter. I saw this, with my own 2 eyes that very day Trump supporters walked to the Capitol. The Capitol police attacked Trump supporters & that is when the retaliation began. This latest, real video shows that all the crap being promoted, is LIES. Only Antifa & BLM stormed the Capitol. Not a single one of them have been arrested because, they have black privilege. It is a hate crime, as the police officer had zero reason to shoot her. Every entity involved in her death has lied & covered up the hate crime. Now it’s been revealed, the officer shooting her, as it can been seen in this latest video. Ooops! Oh my, my, my, what do they do now that they’ve been caught validating this murder & hiding it.

This is asinine. She was standing there being pushed by the crowd. She was not armed and was not being aggressive. A capitol officer without warning shot her. She was a patriot. Pelosi is not!

AND THE SO CALLED POLICE OFFICER WAS “BLACK” . I WONDER IF IT HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH HER BEING A WHITE AMERICAN? DID HE FORGET THAT THE WHITE AMERICAN EVERYDAY HARD WORKING TAX PAYERS IS WHAT KEEP HIS BLM BUDDIES IN ESCALADES WITH FUR ON THE DASH AND IN WELFARE CHECKS AND FREEBIES TO EVERY “BABY DADDY” AND “MOMMIE” IN THIS COUNTRY. OR DID HE JUST SHOOT HER AS A GET BACK? SURE DOES LOOK LIKE IT AND FINALLY LAST WEEK THEY TOLD THE MURDERER NAME FOR EVERYONE TO SEE. FILE CHARGES ON THIS MURDERER LIKE THEY DID WITH THE GUY WITH THE HORNS STILL IN JAIL WITHOUT BOND FOR WHAT?

The guy with the horns is a member of Antifa . I have a picture of him standing outside the Capital with Nancy Pelosi’s son. I also have a picture of him posing in the Capital with the Media taking pictures of him. Several people are standing behind him. You may be able to find the pictures on social media. I found them on Parler before it was shut down by Big Tech.

The guys with the horns is not a member of Antifa and where was the picture of him and pelosi’s son taken, not at the Capital. The Antifa people were the ones not dressed for the weather like Trumpers were. They were in dark clothes with red hats turned backwards and they had FBI infiltrators among the dark clothes Antifa burning flags and the infiltrators were even instigating the Antifa, giving them orders to riot. This was a set up. The guy with horns is a guy who likes to dress like a TV movie and go to various rallies and get attention. It is the FBI working within the Antifa accusing the horn guy being a member of a group of people dressing up like him with their own group name as terrorists. They had no weapons, they just pranced around doing their attention getting thing. His’s the FBI’s escape goat and excuse to use to arrest Trumpers.

Um, excuse me but the story is about Sears and Kmart … so why do you have a picture of a Walmart sign? I’d run out and buy one of those shirts if either were still open around me.

Sears was wrong to give into these pukes. There are plenty of us out that disagree with your decision. We have purchasing power to, I would venture to say more than these losers.

Let us all call Kmart and Seats and let them know what we think of them pulling the t-shirt.

I do appreciate bringing this to my attention. I will be sure to order a few of these items now.
While I believe that Ashli Babbit was most likely misinformed about what led to her doing wrong, she most certainly did not deserve to be shot to death for illegally entering a public building. There were so many other ways to handle the situation than to just murder someone.
She was a patriot, and her life proves that out. Ashli Babbit was an American patriot who wound up in a wrong situation. We can’t take away her patriotism.

Excuse me!!! She did no wrong & simply walked through the Capitol doors when the police removed the barricades & allowed people to walk in. The latest video, this week, shows her walking into the Capitol & never crawling through a broken glass window. Get your facts right, prior to posting your opinion of her doing wrong…..

The medical examiner also said it was a homicide, so why are they not arresting him?

The woman was there peacefully to protest the election results and she was murdered by a capital guard who had a gun and chose to use against the woman’s words

THE POLICE WERE LETTING THE PROTESTERS INTO THE CAPITAL. SHE WAS KILLED IN COLD BLOOD BY A BLACK POLICE OFFICER. CAN YOU IMAGINE THE UPROAR IF THE COP WAS WHITE AND THE DEAD PROTESTER WAS BLACK. THEY ARE TRYING TO KEEP THE BLACK COP IDENTITY HIDDEN.

“Cater to the lowest common denominator” what a snob! Who the hell are you to judge people because they aren’t shopping at Saks! The have BLM shirts anti cop shirts, vulgar anti Catholic shirts but this shirt is a problem? That poor girl was in the wrong place at the wrong time and the shooter doesn’t fit the left’s narrative. We the tax payers have to right to see all the footage from that day. Capital police moved the barrack aids and ushered people in. Now anyone even near the capital that day is an “insurrectionist” ! Total bull another 9/11 how disgraceful to even compare the two.

No wonder Sears and Kmart are almost extinct and may those who call themselves “liberal socialist progressive democrats go the same way.

This woman was not a threat. They didn’t have to shoot her. The whole thing has blown out of proportion by the Democrats on the hill and the main stream media. Of course, you will never hear the true facts of that day.

Now that Sears and K-Mart had their “knee-jerk” reaction on pulling the harmless tee shirt and hoodies that spoke the truth about an American Patriot they can see what a real boycott looks like…. I am done with both of them!!! RIP Ashli Babbitt…
