Shoplifting Drives Up Prices at Walmart

The death of shame, the collapse of morality, and the ghettoization of American culture have combined with Democrat control of the justice system to produce a tsunami of shoplifting. Where liberalism is the most advanced, as in California and New York, the five-finger discount is effectively legal.

There is a price to pay for letting society succumb to moonbattery. Contrary to what liberal doctrine preaches, it isn’t greedy fat cats who pay it. You pay it.

Via Daily Mail:

Walmart’s CEO has warned that the retail giant may have to hike prices and shutter some stores amid ‘historically high’ thefts. …

[Walmart CEO Doug] McMillon did not specify in the interview which locations have experienced this record-high level of shoplifting, but his announcement comes after Walmarts in Los Angeles resorted to locking up most of their inventory to prevent further thefts.

California is a lost cause. The state has entered the terminal phase of the Democrat death spiral, whereby enough productive citizens have left to escape high taxes and societal decay that ever more liberal politicians are elected, resulting in still higher taxes and still more appalling decay, driving out the rest of the productive citizens, leaving only Democrats. That’s how the country’s formerly wealthiest city Detroit rapidly decayed into the hellhole it is today. The erstwhile Golden State is becoming a vast slum as any business that can leaves.

Los Angeles is especially anarchic, due to Soros-installed pro-criminal District Attorney George Gascon. There are plenty more like him throughout the country.

It isn’t only Walmart:

Just one month ago, the chief financial officer at Walmart’s biggest rival, Target, also revealed that shoplifting at its stores had jumped more than 50 percent year on year, leading to more than $400 million in losses in 2022 alone.

As for small businesses, they don’t have the option of closing branches. They just die. The eradication of small business is part of the Democrat agenda. Anything independent must be destroyed.

Walmart executives have been notoriously secretive about how much of an issue shoplifting is for the company, though Forbes has previously estimated that the chain loses about $3billion a year due to thefts.

It often manifests itself as looting of the kind that became fashionable during the liberal establishment-endorsed Black Lives Matter riots:

On November 22, a group of more than 20 shoplifters were caught on surveillance camera entering a Walmart in Memphis, Tennessee and running away with their arms full of expensive merchandise.

Police said 22 armed shoplifters entered the store after allegedly throwing a tire iron through a window.

The thugs were then able to leave the scene with two speakers, two flat-screen televisions, shop vacuums, car batteries and two Black Panther scooters worth a total of $7,715.80.

There is no such thing as a free lunch. When lowlifes steal from Walmart, they are stealing from you. When the liberal establishment encourages theft in the name of its degenerate, quasi-Marxist ideology, this comes at your expense.
