Skip to comments.Macy's Goes On the Down Low, Hooks Up With Obama Gay Group for 'Election Year' Campaign

While conservative activists have focused on the promotion of gay marriage by store chains J.C. Penny and Target, Macy's has gone under the culture radar in its partnership with the Obama-allied homosexual group, the Human Rights Campaign. The incoming president of HRC, Chad Griffin is an Obama bundler.
You won't see it in Macy's weekly sales circular, and you'd be hard pressed to find it on the front page of the Macy's website, but the Human Rights Camapign is loud and proud in declaring its partnership with Macy's urging customers to purchase "election year" Vote Equality t-shirts with the proceeds going to the Human Rights Camapaign.
Walking in to a local Macy's, one might see a rainbow-hued poster displayed at the entrance with the message "Celebrate Family + Friends, Love + Life, Equality + Respect, Pride + Joy."
Missing from the poster are the words Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual and Transgender. And the word Macy's. If one looks closely at the bottom of the poster displayed in the store a tiny Human Rights Campaign logo can be seen.
A click on Macy's Celebrate Diversity web page shows the non-descriptive Pride + Joy image which denotes (June 2012) "National Pride Month", along with other images of Macy's diversity month camapigns.
The (September 2012)Hispanic Heritage Month image reads, "Macy's Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month." The (February 2012) Black History Month image reads, "Macy's Celebrates Black History Month." The (May 2012) Asian Pacific American Heritage Month reads, "Macy's Celebrates Asian Pacific American Heritage Month."
See the pattern? Macy's makes clear to all its customers when they walk in the store that they are proud to associate the Macy's name with Hispanics, Blacks and Asian Pacific Americans. But when it comes to Macy's alliance with the LGBT community and its radical agenda, Macy's goes on the down low with a nod and a wink. Why won't Macy's use a poster that says, "Macy's Celebrates Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual and Transgender Month"? Macy's uses those word deep in its website, but not in public.
The Human Rights Campaign has a photo of a Macy's display promoting the "Vote Equality" campaign:
Again, no obvious mention of promoting homosexuality. Why won't Macy's and the Human Rights Campaign be forthright about their campaign?
According to the Human Rights Campaign, Macy's will feature the "Vote Equality" campaign in only six stores nationwide:
As we kick off LGBT Pride month today, HRC is proud to announce a growing partnership with Macys. The retailer will feature HRC merchandise in its Boston Downtown, Columbus Easton, Los Angeles Beverly Center, Macys Minneapolis, Saint Louis West County and San Francisco Union Square stores throughout the month of June.
Featured merchandise will include a Vote Equality t-shirt, which will be displayed prominently in stores during this election year. One hundred percent of proceeds from the partnership will go to HRCs fight for LGBT equality.
On its web site, if one looks hard enough, Macy's promotion of Gay Pride parades can be found.
Macy's also proclaims, "MACY'S IS PROUD TO CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THE HRC AND ALL ITS INITIATIVES"
Macy's also promotes its work with a suicide prevention group focused on LGBTQ youth.
One can also take the Pride Trivia quiz and maybe win a $100 Macy's gift card. (Who hand-dyed the first Gay Pride flag? What are the colors of the Gay Pride flag?).
The Obama administration is closely allied with the Human Rights Campaign. In addition to having an Obama bundler heading up the group, President Obama spoke at the group's 15th anniversary dinner last year.
Earlier this year, the Obama IRS was accused of leaking confidential tax documents from a traditional marriage group to the Human Rights Camapaign.
This is not the first year of the Macy's Pride + Joy campaign, but Macy's involvement in election year politics encouraging customers to vote for the radical homosexual, lesbian, bisexual and transgender agenda of Obama and the Democrats takes the effort to a new level.
That number is high. Who is doing the counting, gays and friends of gays.
remember that vote that jammed the increase in the debt ceiling down out throats? Just before our debt was downgraded?
Boner et al believed “compromise” and putting the Dept of Defense and MEDICARE on the table for “sequestration” (a sacrificial lamb) would make the democrats finally grow up after running through another $1.5 trillion increase in their allowance - just before the elections
Meanwhile the democrats knew they had no intention of stopping spending, that $1.6 trillion would tide them through obama’s next election before raising the debt ceiling again, and that the GOP does not have the stones to stop them
We the People were screwed
but only a few people and some FOX news analysts seemed to notice, or care
LETS SHOW THEM WHERE THIER BREAD IS BUTTERED
Macy’s department store showcases drag queen in downtown store for “gay pride week” fashion show
In your face: Macy’s Department Store in downtown Boston has prominent display window for “Gay Pride Week.’
Taken down after one business day — after MassResistance pressure!
Macy’s backs down — removed the most offensive parts of window display but still keeps “Gay Pride Week” calendar of events.
You’ve stricken ma nerve, Yaelle! I am a pocket person. Can’t stand having to devote one hand to a purse. I don’t go anywhere without pockets.
Spiritual warfare manifested through social/cultural welfare.
Khrushchev was right...back in 1959. His comrades have the schools, the entertainment media, much of the government.
Macy’s stock is on the edge of the cliff,anything for a buck.
We played the flute for you,They are sitting in the middle of the hustle and bustle of real life and wondering why others don't respond to their ideas of reality, ideas that also happen to get cause and effect exactly backwards.
and you did not dance;
we sang a dirge,
and you did not cry.
These people are evil for using the equals sign to further their agenda. The word “Redefine” would be more accurate.
Where do you think these gay and lesbian people work? Department stores, particularly in management.
Just putting another nail in humanity’s coffin.
Make that "queer" (we on FR really ought to drop that word "gay" and go with what we called them in the good ol' days).
“It is actually less 1.8% of the population is homosexual. It is a bit higher in Liberal big cities. Even in San Francisco, I doubt the population is more than 3% gay.”
Thanks for correcting that, the erroneous 3.5% had been posted multiple times. The higher number comes from the homo lobby itself to inflate their perceived acceptance numbers. This small # of sexual deviants should be more loudly quoted by the right, we don’t need to encourage more of it, it needs to be discouraged. Overthrow homo marriage by initiatives wherever the Democrats try to force it via laws.
As far as the $$$ goes, let's be realistic, no way do the Republicans want to take the blame for a government shutdown. Look at what it did for Clinton's reelection efforts: it was a HUGE plus for him that the GOP (through the MSM) falsely got blamed for it.
Also, WTH can really be done when the Senate is still under RAT control and is led by a true sh*tbag that won't let any budgetary bills on the floor?
The freak show is coming to an end, I believe there will be much, if not massive, amounts of improvement in nearly every facet of life once the circus is thrown out of town.
It’s a private business and they should be able to do whatever they want. Now we can watch their sales drop and watch them scratch their heads asking why.
It would be so easy to add to that t-shirt “man + woman, marriage + family.”
