They are urging the company to cut ties with the news site.
  • North Carolina lawmakers threaten UNC’s, NC State’s ACC membership if league boycotts state

    North Carolina lawmakers filed a bill on Monday that would pull North Carolina and NC State from the Atlantic Coast Conference if the conference boycotted the state again amid the fallout of House Bill 2. House Bill 728 says that if a college conference boycotts North Carolina, then state schools that are a part of that conference would be prohibited from extending the grant of media rights to that conference. The ACC and NCAA had pulled championship events out of North Carolina until HB2 — known as the “bathroom bill” — was repealed. The bill, which was widely decried as...
  • Target CEO Blindsided By Cost Of Conservative Boycott Over Transgender Bathrooms

    The Business Insider reports via Yahoo News: The Target boycott cost more than anyone expected — and the CEO was blindsided Target triggered a nationwide boycott last year with a single blog post — and it turns out the message was as big of a shock to the company’s CEO as it was to some shoppers. The blog post, published in April 2016, publicized a policy that said transgender customers were welcome to use the bathroom or fitting room that matched their gender identity. “Everyone deserves to feel like they belong,” the post said. “And you’ll always be accepted, respected...

    I don’t particularly care which bathroom you use, as long as you wash your hands when you’re done. I also don’t particularly care if your company suffers a huge backlash for bowing to political correctness. And I don’t go to Target stores much anymore, ever since a Meijer store opened up near me. So Target’s recent travails don’t really concern me. Tough luck. Being “woke” might make you feel better about yourself, but it can cost you. Literally. .. {..snip..}
  • The Target boycott cost more than anyone expected — and the CEO was blindsided

    The boycott cost the company millions in lost sales and added expenses. Shopper traffic and same-store sales started sliding for the first time in years after the blog post, and the company was forced to spend $20 million installing single-occupancy bathrooms in all its stores to give critics of the policy more privacy. Critics of the policy said it opened the door for sexual predators to victimize women and children inside the retailer's bathrooms, and more than 1.4 million people signed a pledge to stop shopping at Target unless it reversed the policy. Sales fell nearly 6% in the three...

    If you're looking for a Trump Home chandelier, Bed Bath & Beyond is no longer the store for you. According to an email exchange between the retailer's customer service department and Shannon Coulter, founder of the #GrabYourWallet boycott movement, Bed Bath & Beyond is "no longer carrying Trump merchandise." The store had previously stocked Ivanka Trump products and Trump Home chandeliers (by ELK Lighting) on its website, as well as Ivanka Trump diaper bags on its sister company Buy Baby Buy's website. According to Coulter, Ivanka's products were removed from both earlier this month. A recent search for Trump Home...

    Obama admin. engaged in "diplomatic malpractice," specifically at the Human Rights Council, more generally at the United Nations as a whole, by indulging their hatefests. Hopefully, President Trump will succeed in reversing this destructive course The Trump administration decided to boycott the United Nations Human Rights Council’s special session bashing Israel this week. The Council is devoting time, during its regular annual month-long meeting in March, to take up ‘Agenda Item 7’ dealing with the “human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories.” Israel is the only country in the world that is targeted under such a special...

    The good news for North Carolina is starting to sound like a broken record, but based on the latest business reports, HB 2 might have been the best thing that happened to the state! Tourism is thriving and the economy is expanding — which is exactly the opposite of what liberals predicted. In a great Washington Times piece today, Bradford Richardson and Valerie Richardson are quick to point out that whatever “boycott” the Left had unleashed on the Tar Heels wasn’t nearly as powerful as they thought it would be. Financial indicators released for 2016, they write, “show that the...

Trump supporters have called for a boycott of the chain since January 29, when...

    MARCH 11, 2017 —After several major department stores, including Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus, dropped Ivanka Trump’s products, citing poor performance, the company's revenue boomed in February, mostly from online sales. Though the first daughter divested herself from her eponymous brand in January, a wave of high profile news surrounding the label – including calls for boycotts – combined with full-throated support of the brand from the White House made the sales of Ivanka-brand items more political than ever. Abigail Klem, who took over as president of the fashion label after the election, confirmed the company’s rapid growth online since last...

    A gay veterans group said Wednesday it has been denied permission to march in this year’s Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade just two years after organizers made the groundbreaking decision to allow gay groups to participate for the first time. OutVets, which marched in Boston’s 2015 St. Patrick’s Day parade after decades of resistance from organizers, said on its Facebook page that the reason for the denial to this year’s parade is unclear, but “one can only assume it’s because we are LGBTQ.”

    As soon as the news broke last week that Disney’s new Beauty and the Beast movie would feature an “exclusively gay moment,” Franklin Graham called for a boycott of Disney in a Facebook post that has since been shared almost 100,000 times. The next day, a drive-in theater in Alabama announced that it would not show the movie, while, even before Franklin Graham’s comment was posted, the conservative group One Million Moms called for a Disney boycott, with a clear warning: “Alerting all parents! In a first for the Disney Channel, a Disney XD show subtly displayed several gay kisses...

    The folks who gave us Mickey Mouse and Goofy have decided it’s time for your children to enjoy same-sex romance while they slurp down their Fruit Loops. Disney just broadcast their very first gay cartoon kiss. It happened during the second season of “Star vs The Forces of Evil,” a cartoon broadcast on Disney XD. An audience scene shows two guys kissing and a later scene show two ladies sharing an intimate moment.
