LOUISIANA---Chuck Nethammer on Wednesday payed a visit to his local Walmart in Louisiana on Wednesday in hopes of ordering a Confederate flag cake imprinted with the words "Heritage not Hate." His request was subsequently denied. Irritated by this experience, Nethammer decided to test the retail giant and returned the next day to the Northshore Boulevard store's bakery counter to place an order for a cake emblazoned with the Islamic State flag. To his surprise, the store readily agreed, for the "rollback price" of $19.98 plus tax. [link]
