AFA does what AFA always does: Ends boycott, fakes 'success'

by Jeremy Hooper

Every failed boycott the American Family Association launches against a pro-LGBT company ends the very same way. First this rabidly anti-LGBT organization reaches an arbitrary decision to end the public campaign, and then they couple that termination with a claim that the targeted company made some sort of change in order to appease the anti-LGBT agenda.

It's Home Depot's turn:

After three years, a high-profile pro-family organization is suspending its boycott of The Home Depot because of the retailer’s support of homosexual activist groups and events.

"We're glad to report that we are suspending the boycott of The Home Depot,” says Randy Sharp, director of special projects for American Family Association. “After monitoring the company for several months, we're satisfied that the company has withdrawn its major financial contributions to gay activist groups and to their activities."

AFA is always vague about the "changes" the company supposedly made because, obviously, they have no real substantial change to hoist up. If there was some sort of real success, AFA would SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS.

But there isn't any win. The truth is that the AFA realized that this was failing and that they would never win. Like all past boycotts, they ended this one because, at some point, their obvious lack of efficacy becomes downright embarassing.
