AFA calls off Boycott of Wal-Mart

I know that many free-thinking hypocritical liberals who refuse to acknowledge the role of ethics and morality in the free market system knock the use of organizational boycotts against corporations. However, those boycotts (or even the threat of them) do seem quite effective at times. This release from the American Family Association:


Wal-Mart Says It Will Not Make Corporate Contributions To Support Or Oppose Controversial Issues

You have made a difference! Wal-Mart has announced they "will no longer make corporate contributions to support or oppose controversial issues unless they directly relate to their ability to serve their customers." AFA is pleased with this announcement.

Wal-Mart made the announcement Tuesday afternoon.

In response to Wal-Mart's statement, AFA has decided to cancel its efforts of encouraging people to not shop at Wal-Mart or Sam's Club this Friday and Saturday.

We believe that Wal-Mart will remain neutral in cultural battles.

For those of you who are unaware, the "controversial issue" that is referred to is the funding of the homosexual agenda, which Wal-Mart suddenly decided to do in the last fiscal quarter. This brought a response from AFA, which urged its millions of members to avoid Wal-Mart. While its cause can be argued, Wal-Mart experienced one of its worst quarters ever last quarter, while several of its competitors saw significant revenue gains.

This "liberal" welcomes your boycott of a corporation that impedes the growth of small-town businesses and takes advantage of workers duped into meager employment without proper health care coverage, so that in effect, they can become victims of a class welfare system conservatives regularly rail about. So yes, continue your boycott. We're glad to have you on our team.
