There is much to be wary of in the Odwalla carrot orange juice lately. Moonbats have become restless and are now attacking their most vital food orgasms. Whole Payche- I mean Whole Food’s

Whole Foods Devotees Lash Out at CEO

Customers, Angry Over His Health-Care Views, Share Feelings of Betrayal on Web

Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, August 19, 2009

Whole Foods aficionados who assumed the company’s management was as crunchy as the brand are feeling betrayed.

They have stormed Twitter, Facebook and the blogosphere to vent their rage at John Mackey, the chief executive. In an op-ed column in the Wall Street Journal last week, he argued for health-care savings accounts and declared that health care is not an intrinsic right– ideas with a conservative bent, which made Whole Foods’ liberal customer base go ballistic.

They are even talking about a boycott. And who knows? Maybe some will have to rethink shopping at Wal-Mart. Unions once attacked the retailer’s labor and benefits policies, but Wal-Mart has become the nation’s largest purveyor of organic products and recently espoused a position on health-care reform that is widely considered progressive.

What’s wrong with this picture?

“A lot of people have been paying a premium for the Whole Foods brand for years,” said Mark Rosenthal, a playwright living in Massachusetts who founded the Boycott Whole Foods group a few days ago. It has nearly 14,000 members. “A lot of people are sad to look at this corporation and see that it is just like any other, if not worse.”

Whole Foods spokeswoman Libba Letton said that Mackey was expressing personal opinions in the op-ed and that the company has no official position on the issue. Whole Foods has sent letters to customers apologizing for any offense and created a forum on its Web site to discuss the issue.

The angry Whole Foods backlash has also sent a stream of video hatred directed at CEO John Mackey (Warning: you will need a shower and moonbat rabies shot after watching the following footage)

I have a tip...Don't shop there.

I have a tip...Don't shop there. Take the money you would spend there on organic paper products and pay for some poor woman's mammogram.

If they boycott, where will the moonbats shop for edamame and soy based yacht cleaning products? And what do they hope to accomplish? A message that boycotting is a way to hush up anyone such as Mr. Mackey who has an opinion that differs from your own? Perhaps at this moment in history when public dissent of health care reform is framed by liberals around a series of accusations alleging racism, anti-Semitism and any other term that makes one sound like a plain ol’ flea harboring bigot named Bubba, it is inevitable that the rabid  moonbats – would turn on one of their own.  Much slippage in the aisles is going on in the liberal camp, if you get my drift.

Oh BTW and I have used the term Obamacare, so I am officially far, far, far, far to the right.  I was just saying to my possum Wilbur that it sho’ is mighty fine weather we been havin’ up yonder in Chee-caw-go. I think in a short spell, I will take me a walk up to that thare Whole Foods an git me some sasafrass bark and hemp granola.

    The hypocrisy is just stellar. The caption you have under your last image says it all “Take the money you would spend on organic paper products and pay for some poor woman’s mammogram” Jeez.

  2. boldandbald Says:

    Boy, lefties just hate it when they find out that the ‘green’ companies that they love so much turn out to be run to (gasp) make a profit! Such a betrayal of all that is good and ‘natural’. Seriously, these people need to start their own little communes somewhere and leave the rest of us alone.

    • manbearpig68 Says:

      I was thinking communes as well.. Maybe they call them Obamunes, live in camps and chase the dream that the rest of the U.S was never able to grasp!

    $ 7.50 a pound for turkey meatloaf? I love Whole Foods, but I boycott due to its prices, not its CEO’s health care views.

    • afrocity Says:

      I had to add another video. What a crazy loon.

      I agree John, when I was in Manhattan, I shopped there and at Fairway a lot. The 10 items or less aisle was full because that was all one could afford.

    Talk about moonbats! Hypocrisy is incredible on so many fronts!! Creepy Kata video is the Best!!! My favorite is why does Kata put his/her faith in a giant corporation? it goes against liberal code, doesn’t it? and they don’t even recognize it.. Just like when you walk into a whole foods, 90% of the employees are hipster, left, idealistic kids that are going to change the world, YET YOU ARE WORKING FOR A GIANT CORPORATION THAT IS OUT TO (BOTTOM LINE) MAKE MONEY.. The business may support more causes than say a Jewel but that is done to help make sales and appeal to their target customers… A smart business man knows when something could hurt his business and it sounds like Mackey is smart…

  5. How convenient to boycott Whole Paycheck during a recession when even the wealthiest liberals are having to cut back. Save money and salve your conscience all at the same time!!

    • Excellent observation! Mackey’s libertarian views (which he has always been quite open about) are suddenly a mighty convenient, recession-fueled excuse for liberals to forgo $24/pound arugula-fed, free range salmon in favor of dented cans of 99 cent store SpaghettiOs. Or, since Walmart has succumbed to lefty pressure to stop advertising during Glenn Beck’s show, maybe it will no longer be corporation non grata among “progressives.”

    THE second video is even better! Now I’m going to the bodega to get a TWINKIE!!!

  7. SYD Says:

    OK. Well I never shop at Whole Foods. But today I took my daughter there for lunch. Right after her doctor visit for the appendectomy follow-up. (Those french surgeons… must have offices in the best parts of town, you know.)

    Daughter had sushi and I had a dynamite pasta salad. Coke in a glass bottle!! Yowzaa.

    Really…. we MUST return. And soon! Cost about the same as eating out…. and we got to eat in the car on the way home.

    SYD

  8. AfricanAgainstO Says:

    Glad the kids were not at home while watching that video … a very tolerant lady eh!

  9. Shay Says:

    This move will probably only encourage conservatives and libertarians who previously hadn’t considered shopping at Whole Foods to give the store a second look.

  10. Is it wrong that I laughed out loud when the woman in the second video got teary-eyed at the end?

    BTW, in my area, Whole Foods has some of the best milk prices. A gallon is just $2.59 – that’s more than CostCo but way less than the grocery stores. Pretty evil, that John Mackey, making staples like milk so affordable, focusing on humane food offerings, and consistently making his company one of the top 100 companies to work for.

  11. Rose Says:

    John Mackey is my new HERO!

    Why haven’t we heard his suggestions coming from CONGRESS?
    ◆ Remove the legal obstacles that slow the creation of high-deductible health insurance plans and health savings accounts (HSAs).

    ◆ Repeal all state laws which prevent insurance companies from competing across state lines.

    ◆Enact tort reform to end the ruinous lawsuits that force doctors to pay insurance costs of hundreds of thousands of dollars per year.

    ◆ Revise tax forms to make it easier for individuals to make a voluntary, tax-deductible donation to help the millions of people who have no insurance and aren’t covered by Medicare, Medicaid or the State Children’s Health Insurance Program.
    ***
    Medical Savings Accounts let you pay for health services with PRE-TAX dollars, which practically doubles their value, depending on your tax bracket.

    It cuts out the middlemen – the insurance companies who take your money for nothing, and the government, who do the opposite of doubling your value.

    These are serious options and great ideas and existing programs that could be enhanced, and the lousy stinking braindead Democrats/Pelosi/Reid/SEIU fuckers won’t even – didn’t even – want to take the time to discuss them.

    Does anybody even know what they are voting on? What is is exactly that they are defending so vociferously? Defending to the point of demeaning and deingrating the very people they are SUPPOSED TO represent.

    LOVE YOU, JOHN MACKET – a voice of reason.

    I didn’t feel the need to take a shower, I laughed at both of them.
    Boy are those people unhinged.
    I can understand that one likes to have friends who agree you. Although many of my friends are on the other side of the political spectrum from me.
    But a businessman?? What is wrong with these people. Was that part of the deal? We will overpay for basic groceries because of course the management is in lock step with my thinking??

    This weekend I had a bbq at the house for readers of the blog: Gay Patriot(yeah another apostate right leaning blog). Dan, the blogger went to Whole Foods for the first time, to show his support, he found pink elephant cookies!!! No question, John Mackay is evil, look at the subversive food he is selling in his store.

  13. Saying ‘how dare he’ not support single payer health care for all is akin to saying ‘how dare he’ not support single payer groceries for all. Now there’s something more up his alley! http://www.lewrockwell.com/dilorenzo/dilorenzo176.html

    • Single payer groceries? Now that’s something I could support. After all, food is a right (just like health care). There are lots of people without access to high quality, low cost groceries. There’s a lot of confusion out there about what are the best foods to eat and the grocery stores change their prices so often that it’s really hard to keep up.

      I think we should have single payer groceries.

  14. bellamags Says:

    I just watched the video of the woman who doesn’t blink much. The last time I checked, John Mackey was a citizen of the US and he can do what he wants with his money and have any opinion he would like. He certainly didn’t get to where he is in life because he is an idiot. Maybe she should ask him why he feels the way he does – she might learn something. This woman is a glowing reminder to us all that 50% of the population of the United States has an IQ under 100.

    Sorry, forgot to add great post! Can’t wait to see your next post!

  16. TheRealKim Says:

    Great post AC, but all I can say in response is Whole Foods is a business, as such businesses are started to make money, so . . .

    WTF were they thinking?

  17. *chuckles* and people still wonder why I was a Libertarian for so many years!

    That kind of Libertarian, not the moon bat variety that has taken over the party in recent years…

  18. Tracey Wells Says:

    I normally can only afford to buy groceries from Whole Foods maybe once a month. But I completely support this store and it’s CEO for taking a stand against socialized medicine. It is so funny how the crazy Baby Boomer libs who rebelled against government in the 60’s and 70’s now want us (not them) to completely submit to big government. For the average wealthy liberal, this program is for you, not them. They have no intention to participate in it themselves.
