Walgreens

 

Not as offensive as many other large stores

 

THE BAD:

Walgreens has more middle-of-the-road political donations, however, in 2020 they donated more to Democrats than Republicans for the first time since 2012.

 

On June 19, 2020, Walgreens gave lip service to the violent Marxist group BLM with a tweet.

 

Walgreens has a policy to "utilize a minimum of 8 percent certified Minority Business Enterprise and 2 percent other certified diversity classifications". In fairness, this could be an effectively meaningless stat. For all we know, Walgreens may just happen to have always met such a race-based quota without even knowing.

 

Walgreens once fired a pharmacist who shot at armed robbers using his legally concealed handgun.

 

Walgreen has a Global Chief Diversity Officer.

 

THE GOOD:

As far as we know, Walgreens has not made any donations to race-mongering groups.

 

Walgreens did not join with anti-Trump/ anti-Republican companies who attacked voting reforms in Georgia.

 

Walgreens did not join the left-wing Civic Alliance group.

 

THE BOTTOM LINE:

When it comes to national, big-box pharmacies that also carry general merchandise, unfortunately, there is no perfect choice. Decide for yourself. We feel that Walgreens is at least a better choice than Amazon, Walmart, Target, and the others that we have identified for boycott. Walgreens has a presence in many far-left wing cities across the country. We feel that Walgreens is doing a tap dance, to keep out of the crosshairs of the cancel culture activists. Despite the appearance of being just another "woke" company, they actually seem to be trying to do as little as possible to please the woke mob... No donations, not devoting the front page of their website to woke causes, not taking sides against Republicans or Trump, etc. We are however keeping a very close eye on Walgreens.

 

 

ALTERNATIVES:

1. CVS is merely less offensive than Walmart, Target, Amazon, etc.

 

2. Big Lots is merely less offensive than Walmart, Target, Amazon, etc.

 

3. Overstock.com is merely less offensive than Walmart, Target, Amazon, etc.

 

4. h Menards is a great choice for general merchandise.

 

5. Ace Hardware is a franchise, and a nice choice for general merchandise.

 

6. HomeDepot.com - Not as offensive as Walmart, Target, Amazon, etc. HD is not just hardware. Kitchen, bed, bath, furniture, etc. Co-founder, once supported Trump, then fell for the media's Capitol protest lies about Trump. Home Depot's store in Minneapolis flew a pride flag and was handing out black lives matter signs, thus promoting Marxism. Home Depot donated 1 million dollars to Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. We give HD credit for the fact that employee and/or PAC donations favor Republicans, and for not caving in to the left-wing mob's demands to denounce Georgia's voting integrity bill.

 

7. Any other apolitical stores.
