Shopping Mall Empire Crushes Conservative Store


Loren Spivack of said that his Concord, N.C. shopping mall kiosk was shut down by a shopping mall chain because it carried anti-Obama and anti-liberal merchandise on the “Glenn Beck Program” Friday.  (The Charlotte Observer also reported on the story.) 

“What essentially happened was one of the largest corporations in the country decided to stomp on one of the smallest companies in the country, Free Market Warrior,” Spivack explained. The action was taken based on one complaint from “one person who was not willing to be in the same mall as material that she disagrees with.”

Spivack said his kiosk sold baby bibs that read “My parents chose life: thanks mom and dad,” and bumper stickers that read “Impeach Obama” and “Al Qaeda’s 2 favorite days: 9/11/01 & 11/4/08.”

Beck noted that the owners of the shopping mall holding company are big contributors to the Democratic Party but not did identify them on-air.

In fact, the Concord Mills mall is owned by the Simon Property Group Inc., which is run by Melvin and Bren Simon. Mrs. Simon is a member of the Democracy Alliance, a group of liberal plutocrats determined to turn the U.S. into a European-style socialist state. The Democracy Alliance is led by left-wing philanthropist and political meddler George Soros.
