Boycott the Home Depot
afa.net ^ | 07-22-2010 | unknown

Posted on 07/22/2010 12:35:10 PM PDT by Houmatt

BOYCOTT! The Home Depot promotes the homosexual agenda For several years, The Home Depot has given its financial and corporate support to open displays of homosexual activism on main streets in America's towns.

Rather than remain neutral in the culture war, The Home Depot has chosen to sponsor and participate in numerous gay pride parades and festivals. Most grievous is The Home Depot's deliberately exposing small children to lascivious displays of sexual conduct by homosexuals and cross-dressers, which are a common occurrence at these events.

Judge for yourself by reviewing the photos below, taken during recent homosexual events sponsored by The Home Depot. Should The Home Depot be helping advance the homosexual agenda? And more importantly, will you choose to boycott The Home Depot?

I refuse to patronize a store that so openly endorses the destruction of marriage and indoctrination of our children into this disgusting, abhorrent behaviour. I have signed the petition. Won't you join me?

This is not necessary. When you go to Home Depot:

a. They don’t have it.

b. They can’t find it.

c. They have no idea what you are talking about.

d. That aisle is closed because they are restocking.

Why would I boycott Home Depot? I love fighting my way thru a horde of illegals at the entrance.

Faggotry is one thing, bad writing is another.

I should believe bad things about one entity because another entity writes double-poorly about it?

Honestly. Look at that text and tell me it’s legitimate.

Kind of a parallel to various entertainers with an inability to “...shut up and sing.” It would seem wise from a business perspective to focus on what they do - and a lot less on what is likely to alienate / disturn customers. A customer niche of a small percent is simply not worth the larger percent.

Admins are such killjoys.
Ok I will not shop at Home Depot because:
1. They are over priced
2. The stuff that the do have is overpriced
3. They have NO concept of good customer service
4. I like Lowe's and Menards MUCH better

Admins is this a more quality post?

I already boycott Home Depot.

They were installing “shelters’ in the parking lots of their So Calif stores to protect the ‘day workers (illegals)’ from the weather—rain in winter,,,,,,sun in summer.

Many of these shelters took up as many as 6 ++ spaces.

I told one store manager that Home Depot was proving to be part of the problem of illegal intruders....they were not part of the solution.

Told him to enjoy that money I just spent at Home Depot—it would be the very last money I spent inside a Home Depot.

That was in the early 1990’s.

Still won’t enter a Home Depot. Lowe’s is much nicer to me.

That assumes you will find someone to ask. I avoid them for that reason. Lowe’s folks ask you if you’ve found what you want and can they help. Love Lowe’s. sd

I’m not too pleased with Home Depot - everything I buy there seems to break within 6 months. I believe, but have no evidence, that even the big brands like Delta, Rubbermaid, etc... have cheaper versions of the same product, made just for Home Depot.

Add in the gay-thing, and I’ll stick with the family-run run local hardware store down the street.

What really irks me is the Spanish signs everywhere in the store. I chock that up to corporate greed, at the expense of our sovereignty.

I read about the home support earlier, and so already had Home Depot on my “don’t buy” list.

The problem is that I also don’t want to see Spanish labels in the stores I shop, and Lowe’s does that.

Well, at least I still have my local Ace hardware...

I’ve shopped Menards for many years. They seem like a good American based company that promotes American made products.

“I love fighting my way thru a horde of illegals at the entrance.”

You aren't kidding! The last time I went in my truck when I pulled in to the parking lot about 40, I kid you not, 40 illegals started running up to m truck. I immediately turned around and left and never went back to HD.

I stopped going to Home Depot because the illegals would beg for work or ask for money. I had them try to sell me drugs too. They were persistent in trying to sell marijuana.

Home Depot's stores are filthy.

Go to the website and look at the pictures.

Provide hits to a site that has writing best attributed to a pre-schooler?

I rather think not.

LOL!!

My husband is a carpentry contractor and he hates Home Depot because of the poor service. I ask him why he goes back and he tells me it's to remind himself how much he hates the place.

Sorry, I will not. I love my Home Depot store. Lowe’s in my area sucks. I wish we had Menard’s in South Carolina. Home Depot also has donated millions of dollars of tools to our troops in Iraq/Afganistan.

a. They don’t have it.

b. They can’t find it.

c. They have no idea what you are talking about.

d. That aisle is closed because they are restocking.

That's why I go to Menard's

a. They have it

b. They can get it if it's not there right now

c. They know what it is when you ask

d. Even when restocking aisles, you can get through, and if not, they will get it for you.

As does Lowe's. It may not be displayed, but if you provide your ID and ask, they're supposed to take 10% off. (This coming from a Lowe's CSA.) ;)
