Confederate flag cake, no. ISIS flag cake, yes. Wal-Mart apologizes after YouTube flap

A Wal-Mart store in Slidell {Louisiana} refused a request to decorate a cake with a design featuring a Confederate flag, but another Wal-Mart in Slidell agreed to decorate a cake featuring the flag of the Islamic State terrorist group, or ISIS, a man says in a video posted to YouTube.

Wal-Mart has apologized for selling the ISIS cake, explaining that the employee who handled the order did not recognize it as the group's flag. The corporation, a spokesman said, does not support ISIS.

The YouTube video, posted Friday (June 26) by a man identified as Chuck Netzhammer, shows a man sitting on a motorcycle unfurl a Confederate flag bearing the words "HERITAGE NOT HATE'' and explain that he sought to have that image on a cake he wanted to purchase from the Wal-Mart store on Natchez Drive in Slidell. He said the store refused. But in the YouTube video, the man shows a receipt for the cake decorated with ISIS flag that he said was purchased at the Wal-Mart location on Northshore Boulevard.

"All right, Wal-Mart,'' he says, "you got some explaining to do.''

1. They should have substituted a "moderate rebels" cake, instead, and avoided controversy.

2. The only thing this idiot proved by having the ISIS cake made is

that after 150 years everyone knows the confederate flag is a symbol of hate.

ISIS has only been around a few years so not everyone knows their symbol. Idiot proved nothing.
