Whole Foods CEO Says ObamaCare is “Fascism”. Liberal Heads Explode.

Organic Capitalism!

Love the comments on facebook:

So the CEO of Whole Foods called Obamacare “fascism” on NPR. I honestly don’t think I’ll shop there again. I hate to be so personal, when it’s a big store chain mostly populated with great employees, but….dunno. I don’t think I can put any more money in this asshole’s pocket.

He’s outted himself as a dick on many occasions. This is just the most recent of several.

Face it… most CEOs are dicks.

you know, I’ve ignored a bunch of things he’s said because a. I believe very much in organic food and supporting organic producers and b. Whole Foods are major job providers (decent jobs too) and generally good for communities but man…seriously, the board of Whole Foods should can that guy. He should step down. He is ruining everything their brand stands for–or at least what their customers WANT them to stand for. Well, I think I will wage my own personal boycott for the time being.

Personally, I think you should judge the company by its corporate actions and leave the CEO’s personal political beliefs aside out of respect for a) his and everyone’s right of free speech and b) the democratic necessity of a diversity of opinions. We liberals are all for diversity until it comes to speech. Odd, that.

Did you see him on CBS This Morning. It was…an oddly disconnected interview. He’s a vegan but he thought fascism was the wrong word but he’s a capitalist but he opposes Obamacare.

    Whole Foods is no more than liberal feel good speak for free range chicken, even though the chicken is dead and wrapped in plastic.

    I wouldn’t shop there, I have a fear of hair, especially that matted up dreadlock crap.

    You guys should do some more research on Whole Foods. I shop there any time I can afford it. Grass fed beef. I’m a Red Meat Addict. Their CEO has been busting Obamys ass for at least two years. Last time I was there the kid bagging the groceries was wearing an NRA cap. That’s no bull shit. I’m not saying it’s a hot bed for conservatives, it’s not. But they are capitalists just trying to be profitable with out the Gov screwing with them. I appreciate the locally butchered and grown food they sell.

    Delete Vegan. They sell the best meat. Including, Buffalo, Elk, and Venison. Best meat I’ve EVAH eaten, ELK. And super low cholesterol. And now, I will sound like a Whole Foods employee. The Federal Government is poisoning you with what the FDA demands they pump into your meat. It’s bullshit. Talk to Uncle Ted. He’ll tell you the same thing.

    WF has great food, and expensive. I go occasionally. Their healthcare plan is the envy of most companies, and they are always on the Fortune 100 best companies to work for. Let’s see if the same thing happens as did last time libs were butthurt about this guy’s comments and threatened to boycott – sales and stock price went up.

    Will continue to support Whole Foods on the basis of the courage of the CEO. Plus I like their food.

    The California GMO proposition that failed in November was essentially to bring all food up to WF labeling – along with the cost. Libs always ignore the impact these measures have on the poor.

    Organic food guide lines are not the same as the rest of the normally processed food. Google up organically grown beef. Makes no sense. If you can kill your own wild meat and eat it, your better off. And grass fed is considered organic.

    They don’t track what you buy with “Shopper’s Cards.” You don’t have to give up your privacy to get the Sale Price.

    How do I know? When Anna Nicole got here, she raved about the Whole Foods on North Glendale.

    I shop at Whole Foods almost everyday.

    When people see me shopping at Whole Foods and my UC Berkely Alumni licence plate holder they probably assume that I am a knee jerk liberal.

    Just goes to show you, you really can’t judge a book by it’s cover.

    Sounds like a good place to shop, especially if brain dead liberal’s wont be there. Keep us informed on all this leftist anti American stuff shit for brains.
