Wal-Mart Contributes 5% Of Online Sales To Homosexual Group
Sign the pledge not to shop at Wal-Mart or Sam's Club on the Friday and Saturday following Thankgiving
Help recruit 1,000,000 to agree to not shop at Wal-Mart or Sam's Club (owned by Wal-Mart) on the Friday and Saturday following Thanksgiving. Here's why:
In a show of support to help homosexuals legalize same-sex marriage, Wal-Mart has agreed to automatically donate 5% of online sales directly to the Washington DC Community Center for Gay, Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender People. The cash donation will come from ALL online purchases made at Wal-Mart through the homosexual group's Web site. This move follows Wal-Mart's joining the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and agreeing to give generous financial help to that group.
Every purchase made online for books, music, videos, clothing and accessories, children's clothing and toys, and electronics at the site will automatically send 5% of the sales to the homosexual group.
With this agreement, Wal-Mart made clear their support for the homosexual movement was a total commitment to the cause.
Many observers feel it would have been a wise business decision for Wal-Mart to remain neutral in the cultural battle over homosexual marriage. But this was an ideological decision by Wal-Mart, not a business decision. Wal-Mart decided to give the promotion of homosexual marriage their full support.
1. Sign the petition to Wal-Mart letting them know you will be one of the 1,000,000 who will not shop at Wal-Mart or Sam's Club on the Friday or Saturday following Thanksgiving. Click here.
2. VERY IMPORTANT! Millions of Americans are not aware of Wal-Mart's support for homosexual marriage. PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

Source for the Walmart donation? This sounds like a hoax.
I bet you that a substantial percentage of the HR people in Walmart are homosexual...and in addition, some key decision makers are probably in the closet and subject to blackmail.
That combination will lead to decisions that are not in the company's interest.
Or you could not buy things through the homosexual group's Web site?
Does the AFA realize that this homosexual group is going to get even more publicity because of this news release? This is just dumb.
Assuming this is true, does Wal-Mart have similar agreements with other organizations. Could a church or fraternal organization get 5% of the business they pass through to Wal-Mart?
But where else are we going to buy our Wal-Mart goods, if not through the homosexual web sites that we all frequent every time we want to shop?
extensively discussed HERE
yep...we should do nothing...let the money roll into the enemy coffers.
This doesn't pass the smell test. I'd like to see this group provide a source for their claims.
I could care less. The American Family Association doesn't sell anybody groceries.
looking at that long list, you would be hard pressed to shop anywhere without that qualification
Tell the truth now, NY'er.
They will pay a commission of 5% for any on line sales from the groups web site. The way you say it, it sounds like Wal Mart is giving away 5% of their entire on line sales.
Wal Mart also gives a hell of a lot of money, support, and material to the boy scouts.
A mass retailer subsidizing non-breeders? Pretty funny, if true.
The headline is somewhat misleading. The claims made by the person in the article says that Wal-Mart will donate 5% of online sales made throught the gay group's website. A vast difference from the impression given by the headline.
I don't think it is a hoax, just misleading. The article gives a clue, and that is only if you make purchases through the gay website from Wal-mart do they get 5%. So it does not apply to all on-line purchases like implied in most of their statements.
This is just more "hate Walmart" crap from the same folks who support unions...
Is this just a referral program? They get 5% of the sales directed from their site??
THIS IS ONLY AN "AFFILIATE" PROGRAM.
This is so embarrassing. I can't believe the AFA is getting all bent out of shape over an affiliate program. Gays will get more money because of the AFA now and this will not effect Walmart until social conservative set up their own shops.
It's the usual "hate Walmart" people. Where can I sign saying I WILL SHOP AT WALMART? Because I will shop at Walmart and Sam's and I hate the friggin lyin' Unions.
I'm just recycling this from an earlier post I made:
This is just a standard click-through sales strategy that's also done by Amazon and other online retailers. The web site puts up a "buy this book" (or whatever) ad, and whenever people click from there and buy it, the originating site gets a percentage of the sale. In common terms, the site was the sales lead, so it gets its commission.
It's not like Wal-Mart specifically inked a special deal with just this group as people want you to think. Anyone can just go online and register for this affiliate program. It's a good way to make money if you have a site with lots of traffic.
If this is true, it sounds like the Eisner Disneyites have all gone to work at Walmart.
The WalMart affiliate program offers 5-12% commission on ANY website that joins their program. The AFA is VERY MISLEADING...WalMart will pay any website a commission, I doubt the upper levels of WalMart management are even aware of the groups that join the affiliate program.
Walmart affiliate program. So like the AFA could get the same deal if they signed up.
Yeah we should boycott Google next because they allow Adsense on gay webpages!!
Don't forget the boycott Amazon, their referral program is open to all as well - including GAYS AND TERRORISTS!!! ROFL!!!
Are you sure this is real and not part of some smear campaign from lefties like Kennedy, who HATE Wal-Mart and know a lot of frugal conservatives shop there?
And the Lame-stream media, world of finance, corporate America and last but not least Hollyweird.
"...and in addition, some key decision makers are probably in the closet and subject to blackmail."
Methinks it 'tis *us* who're [being] blackmailed.
"That combination will lead to decisions that are not in the company's interest."
...never mind the Republic. ;^)
Smoking in bed is a leading cause of fires.
Can FreeRepublic become an affiliate? Just imagine the posts at DU: "Boycott Wal-Mart even more. Crazy FreeRepublic gets 5% of all sales at Wal-Mart"
It is a hoax, these people are liars, as you read farther down, you will see the 5% comes only from sales at the homosexual web site it self.
Hmmm there is a clause on there about not allowing sites that require a username and password, but I think that's to access the site not necessarily about posting. Other then that I didn't see any reason why not :).
Stick a banner with the pajama patrol badges on the front page.
A quick Google search should convince you that this is for real. How about this story?
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--Wal-Mart, the worlds largest retailer, has taken another step away from its family oriented roots by entering a partnership with the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, a move the chambers president said Wal-Mart initiated.
As part of the deal, Wal-Mart will pay the chamber $25,000 a year for sponsorship of events and initiatives and has agreed to conduct workshops for homosexual business owners on how to break into the Wal-Mart supplier ranks, according to a report by the Los Angeles Times Aug. 25.
Randy Sharp, a spokesman for the American Family Association, told the Morning News of northwest Arkansas that he has stopped shopping at Wal-Mart because it has moved away from its pro-family stance.

Heck I'm even thinking about picking me up a 42" Widescreen Plasma HDTV with HD Tuner for $988 on Friday morning after Thanksgiving.
Back in November, 2002, The Culture and Family Institute issued a notice about potential problems Wal-Mart would face for standing up to the homosexual crowd. Indeed, radical homosexual activists led by the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF) targeted the retail giant for a national protest, partly because it will not give special protections to "transgender" (gender-confused) employees.
From the notice:
Pride At Work, a creation of the AFL-CIO, and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, are joining in protest of local Wal-Mart stores on November 21. The organizations want to pressure the nation's largest retailer to enact homosexual domestic partner benefits and include sexual orientation in its nondiscrimination policy. (The Task Force is a leftist "gay" group that is allied with sadomasochists and wife-swapping sexual "swingers.")
That was 4 years ago. Apparently, Wal-Mart and the GLBT crowd have resolved the problem.
Wal-Mart is the latest company that has heard our message about completing the circle of corporate diversity. No longer is just marketing to the LGBT segment enough. No longer is having a corporate non discrimination policy that includes sexual orientation enough. If a company is as truly committed to being a good corporate citizen in the LGBT space as they are with other diverse communities, then they need to buy back and invest in LGBT community-owned businesses like they do with other diverse segments. Their supplier base, those from whom they purchase goods and services, must look like the customer and employee base they have or are trying to attract.
Precisely. Does it occur to anyone that this is possibly a standard agreement Wal*Mart makes with other websites who sent traffic their way?
You have a point there. The northwest corner of Arkansas is known to be a hotbed of homosexuality.
So basically, 5% of the purchases made from Wal-Mart made via the homosexual's website will go back to that website. So 5% of homosexuals money will go back to thier organization?
What's the problem? Or are you planning on shopping at Wal-Mart FROM the homosexual org's website?
Get over it.
DING DING!! But you've got to realize, that anyone who doesn't fall in lockstep with blind hatred of any and all things homosexual must be boycotted.
Frankly, I'm sick of the homosexual agenda being shoved in my face constantly. And I'm equally disgusted with the anti-homosexual agenda too.
