I wrote an email post about how Walmart announced it will not fund candidates who opposed certification of the Electoral College results. I was surprised by this.
A friend remarked that there is a decent slice of the population who doesn’t believe what the government tells them but will believe what Walmart tells them because Walmart is veritably festooned in red, white, and blue. The unconscious thought process is that if it looks patriotic, it must be patriotic.
He pointed out that the liberal side needs to put more effort into symbols and color schemes, becuase a lot of people actually really need that sort of thing and so far they’re only getting it from the right.
That was an Oh Wow realization for me. I think my friend is right.
