An anti-LGBT activist has released a list of 58 different businesses to boycott during the holiday season.
‘Mission: America’ founder and right-wing radio host Linda Harvey has lamented that in the era of big business rallying behind LGBT rights, there’s simply not many places left to do your Christmas shopping.
The tide of companies coming out to take part in Pride parades, launch LGBT inclusive ads and stand up for corporate diversity has not slowed down – and Mrs Harvey’s Christmas shopping will be more difficult than ever.
In a post for conspiracy theory website WorldNetDaily last year, Mrs Harvey reeled out a list of 58 separate companies to boycott.
She lamented: “For any Christian who wants to spend hard-earned dollars with family-friendly, Christian-affirming retailers, restaurants and service providers, the list is growing shorter all the time.
“I stopped shopping at Macy’s in 2011 after learning about the retailer’s grossly unjust policy against women.
“Macy’s management said ‘yes’ to a transsexual young man’s demand to change in the women’s dressing room and rejected a Christian employee’s attempt to block his inappropriate access, even firing her because of her principled actions.
“Then there’s Target. Where to start? Selling ‘gay pride’ T-shirts a few years back was bad enough, but Target is now ‘proudly standing’ with homosexuals and cross-dressers who want to change America’s 1964 Civil Rights Act to add ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘gender identity’.
“Joining Target in supporting this anti-American, pro-deviance legislation are Amazon, General Mills, Google, Facebook, Paypal, Levi-Strauss and others.”
Channelling her Santa Claus realness, Harvey reeled off a list of 58 different companies that you should definitely not do your shopping at.
On the super-naughty list is Best Buy, Abercrombie & Fitch, American Eagle Outfitters, Barnes & Noble, CVS, Dell, DIRECTV, E-Bay, Ford Motor Co., The Gap (includes Old Navy and Banana Republic), General Motors, Hallmark, Home Depot, IKEA, JC Penney, Levi-Strauss & Co., Macy’s, Mattel, Nationwide, Nike, Nissan, Nordstrom, Office Depot, Staples, Starbuck’s, Target, TJX Companies ( owns TJ Maxx and Marshall’s), Volkswagen and Walgreen’s.
But that’s not all! Also on Harvey’s no-fly list are the Anderson’s, Auto Zone, Bed Bath & Beyond, Big Lots, Burlington Stores, Casey’s General Store, Cooper Tire & Rubber Co., Cracker Barrel, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Dillard’s, DISH Network Corp., Dollar Tree, Family Dollar Stores, Foot Locker, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., Harley-Davidson, Harry & David, The Jones Group–New York, Kohl’s Corp, LL Bean, Lowe’s Companies, Oshkosh Corp., Pep-Boys, Publix Super Markets, RadioShack Corp. and Sherwin-William.
