Boycott Target

Target Getting the Message - Stock Drops 7%:

"There is an anti-Christian bias in this country, and it is more on display at Christmas season than any other time." – Bill O'Reilly, The O'Reilly Factor, Fox News Channel – (Speaking about the decision of Target and other stores to ban the use of "Merry Christmas" in their stores and advertising.)

On October 7 we brought to your attention that Target was banning the Salvation Army's kettles from the front of their stores. Now we've learned Target is also banning the use of "Merry Christmas" from their in-store promotions and from their advertising in papers, TV, etc.

Your efforts are having an impact. USA Today (11/16/05) announced that "Target alarmed investors by saying projected sales at stores open a year in November would miss the estimated 4% to 6% growth. Shares of Target fell $4.13 to $54.30." (A 7% drop.)

Target's ban of the Salvation Army and "Merry Christmas" expresses the same attitude toward Christianity as that held by Michael Newdow, who wants to ban "In God We Trust" from our currency and "under God" from our Pledge of Allegiance.

AFA is asking individuals to boycott Target during the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend—the busiest shopping weekend of the year. Please share this request to boycott Target on that weekend with friends, family and members of your church and Sunday school class.

Please sign the petition to Target. This petition will also be sent to other major chains banning the use of "Merry Christmas" including Costco, BJ's, Wal-Mart, Sears/K-Mart and Kohl's. It is basically too late to change their policies this year, but we can change it for next year. Last year we called for a boycott of Federated Stores because they banned "Merry Christmas." This year they are using "Merry Christmas!"

A successful boycott of Target will send a message to every company!

This is your opportunity to make your voice heard. Please act today and then forward this to friends and family.

Sincerely,

Don

Its hard to imagine anything more anti-American as well as unChristian as the vile filth you are worshipping. The fascists in your beloved Party are the antithesis of the origins of this country. The teaching and leadership of scum like Falwell may be "Christian" as you Pharisees and hypocrites have perverted the term, but the message and principles are still the same - you believe that Jesus was a stupid asshole.

Guess you aren't a believer, are you?

Hey TC: You are getting trolled by some loser leftists. Leftists who don't even have the courage to say who they really are and post vulgarities on con sites. I don't agree with protectionism and think that the signing of the petition is tantamount to a form of protectionism. I beleive in a capitalist economy with the CATO Institute running the game. That being said, if one doesn't agree with some company policies, boycott them. I do believe in Christmas and have a real problem with companies that are falling for Mr. Newdow and other fool's crap. But an economically driven boycott is far more effective than signing any petition imho. Good post. I will highlight your blog so some real conservatives will come visit you and not just silly trolls! Have a nice day.

It is great to see others posting on this too! Several posts back on mine...I did the same thing with the link but to stores using Christmas in the advertising and the retailers allowing their employees to use Merry Christmas as a greeting. (from Bill's site)

I will not be shopping at Targets...you can bet on it!!
