Walmart’s owners are so absurdly rich that one of them, Alice Walton, spent over a billion dollars building an art museum in Bentonville, Arkansas, 500 miles away from the nearest person who ever would want to look at art. And she said about it: ‘For years I’ve been thinking about what we can do as a family that can really make a difference.’ How about giving your employees a raise, you deluded nitwit?

i see basically eye to eye with Bill Maher on most things, but i will never like him for this fucking reason. i completely agree that every member of the Walton family is a fucking moron who can’t see the inhuman damage they are causing to the people in their employ and society as a whole. i agree that improving the conditions of walmart employees is a far better use of their resources than opening an art museum. but you can say that without insulting the people who live in the region. i live within 500 miles of Bentonville and I WORK AT A FUCKING ART MUSEUM! which just so happens to be down the street from our civic center where Bill Maher has sold out shows on multiple occasions. we may not be the most progressive of places, but for him to perpetuate a stereotype he himself knows to be untrue is just hypocritical. i don’t know why i would expect some old white dude to try changing things rather than get fat on his half assed jokes that nearly always have to come specifically at some one else’s expense. i’m sorry, it’s just lazy comedy and closed minded idiocy.
