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

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?

Not everyone who works at HD sucks, but how about the Home depot loading help....
I had back surgery for a ruptured disk in 2007 and after waiting by the truck for 20 minutes several times I start loading it myself and they finally send out some kid who cant even lift a sack of concrete and drags it across the tailgate ripping the sack so I fired him and just finished loading the 27 sacks of concrete myself.....thats what you get for minimum wage

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.

Unfortunately this is true for almost all of the big box stores. For example: you buy a Husky Power Washer from Home Depot. It has a Husky label on it, and a owner's manual with a model number, etc. But, good luck finding parts numbers, getting parts, or anything else except simple stuff like hoses and connectors. Home Depot buys them by the railroad car load and each lot is built for them at a negotiated rock bottom price so the manufacturer basically produces a knock off of his own product. And that Honda engine powering the whole contraption - same thing.

I takes the Lowes road, myself. We have both in our area, and an Ace not far away that’s also excellent.

Currently I am rehabbing the house, so I am buying lots of stuff. The last time I went to Home Dipshits I had about $600 worth of plumbing fixtures and fittings in the cart. When I went to checkout, the ONLY checkouts open were the self serve ones. I asked what the discount was for doing their work for them and they thought I was rude to ask such a question.

I left the cart right there in the middle of the isle, and said as loud as I can . . .

“Screw this! I am going to Lowes!”

They are. I am sorry that at this moment I can’t remember where I learned that, but they are.

Re: ..but if you provide your ID and ask, they're supposed to take 10% off.

Is it for active duty only or for any veteran? Can you elaborate on what is accepted as evidence?

A military ID card that denotes active, guard, reserve or retired status is accepted. My wife shows her dependent ID and gets the 10% as well.

They should have a notice posted near the register or customer service counter. Or you could just ask one of the CS reps and they can clue you in on any other status such as non-retired veteran.

I’ve already been boycotting Fag Depot for a couple of years. I already knew about this, but can’t remember where I heard it now

Most Home Depots look like dirty dumps & disorganization. On the other hand Lowe’s is clean, organized with knowledgeable salesmen ready to assist the customers.

Boycotts only succeed in making those taking part in them feel good about themselves.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Thanks for the info. After 4 years at the Zoo and 6 years active duty I resigned my commision, so I don't fall into any of those categories. I was hoping a DD214 was enough.

It might be worth checking into though... appreciate your feedback.

Homo Depot lost my business over a year ago because of their celebration of perversity.

Just an obvious question: has anyone checked out Lowe's policies toward homosexuality?

It seems to me that the competitors are usually almost as bad.

You've got to show a valid military ID on the ask-for year round discount. (Which pretty much limits it to active duty or retired personnel.) They extend the discount to veterans on Memorial Day, July 4th and Veteran's Day when any verification (VA membership card, etc) are supposed to be accepted.

I meant to add reservists and disabled vets into that first little bit. I’m a little too quick on the trigger sometimes. ;)

There's some truth in that; it's a legitimate goal to know that you're not directly contributing to an entity that supports perversion - with money you gave.

But boycott's, especially those organized by known organizations such as the AFA, can and often do make companies sit up and take notice. In competitive industries like home improvement, where two big box stores are earnestly vying for supremacy, even marginal movements in market share are critical to success. I believe that McDonalds really scaled back their support for homosexual organizations due directly to an AFA boycott. Ford is another example. Even threatening a boycott, especially during a recession, can be a very powerful motivator.

I gues that exschplains why I have a distinct reluctance to bend over to pick up anything dropped on the floor at Home Repo. From now on I am using Lowe's.

What really irks me is the Spanish signs everywhere in the store.

That's why we avoid this store. The homosexual twist just makes it 100X worse. This needs to get around more. I'll mass e-mail it (complete with pictures and link to prove it).

I already stopped patronizing them because of their shoddy operation and employees that don’t have a clue.

I feel I must reply to all.Remodeling my house,I had a Home Depot credit card.The place I was trying to do business with was large.
After numerous trips back and forth which was about a 250 mile round trip,I discovered that you were on your own in this huge store.
I could not help but notice that many employees could disappear within plain sight and no one noticed.
Ask for help,just one minute and poof!GONE!
The worst place I have ever been.The employees could disappear and no one noticed.
The amount of money that store alone lost because of that,I could not believe.
Good thing,no Mexicans to assault you while shopping.Is that an upside?

There’s nothing available at Home Depot that you can’t in more quantity, with better quality, or with more variety at another hardware store whether a big box like Lowe’s or an Ace Hardware.

I’ve been boycotting for years. No reason besides the fact that I like Lowes better.

A friend stopped to tell me today that he had just heard on the radio a story about a man wearing a “In God We Trust” button to support his brother in the Afghanistan war effort.

He was told to take it off because they didn’t support that. Instead he was told that Home Depot supports same-sex marriage.

When the employee refused to remove the “In God We Trust” button, he was fired.

DO BOYCOTT Home Depot. They won’t see my money again, and I’ll stop in and tell them why too.
