Don’t Freeze Your Values This Christmas–Avoid These Snowflakes

During this time of year, it is crucial to stick to your values when shopping. Many popular retailers would shock you with all the liberal activism that they fund with your hard earned money. Here are a handful of retailers to avoid and why.

Target
Of course, Target has marketed itself as a convenient stop for Christmas. However, what isn’t convenient is men using women’s bathrooms creating a real safety risk for women and children. Along with their bathroom stance, they fund activism against the 2nd Amendment and religious liberty as well as activism that supports common core and sanctuary cities.

The Home Depot
Home Depot may come as a bit of a shock to you, because they aren’t outspoken about their political stance like Target. However, they donate to organizations that then donate to liberal activist groups like Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and Planned Parenthood. Make no mistake, a dollar spent at Home Depot is another dollar towards the left’s agenda.

Amazon
Shopping in the comfort of your own home is great, but shopping at Amazon quite frankly isn’t great. Amazon directly funds the Population Council, an organization that targets impoverished areas for abortion. Even worse, they nauseatingly market abortion as a solution to poverty. Amazon is a corporate champion of the left, which is why we suggest going to Overstock.com instead.

These retailers along with many others are ones to avoid this year. Even though it can be tempting to dismiss your values for your Christmas shopping, try your best to avoid these bad guys.

    Wal-Mart more liberal than Target? I think not. However, I was not aware that they support Center for American Progress. (Less than $100,000 of support, but still.) It’s a bit more troubling that they support a slew of anti-religious-liberty (“equality”) groups. Compared to Target’s open pandering to left wing agenda, though, that’s nothing.
