Home Depot

 

Home Depot has been gradually losing our support

 

(for not just hardware, but kitchen, bed, bath, furniture, etc)

THE BAD:

If Home Depot was a politician, they would be Mitch McConnell. Sometimes they say and do the right things, but sometimes they backstab Republicans. We were big Home Depot supporters until Home Depot fell off the wagon after the 2020 election. Co-founder, Ken Langone once supported Trump, then he began parroting the mainstream media's Capitol protest lies about Trump. Where was Ken Langone's outrage over the BLM riots? Instead, Home Depot supported the violent, lawless, Marxist movement.

 

We're told that Home Depot's store in Minneapolis actually flew a pride flag and was handing out Black Lives Matter signs, thus promoting Marxism.

 

Home Depot also donated 1 million dollars to Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law (although this is much less than the 25 million that Lowes donated in response to the BLM riots). Now, amidst smash-and-grab robberies plaguing democrat run cities, Home Depot is suddenly hypocritically in favor of law and order.

 

Also in 2020, Home Depot's once heavy employee and PAC donations to Republicans began to serously waiver. In 2016, they donated 2.5 times more to Republicans. By 2020, just 17% more. Although, Republican support has improved in 2022.

 

THE GOOD:

Home Depot co-founder, Bernie Marcus is a big Trump and Republican supporter, however he left the company way back in 2001.

 

We give Home Depot credit for merely giving a middle-of-the road, ambiguous response to leftist mob's demands for HD to denounce Georgia's much-needed voter reform bill.

 

We also give HD credit for so far not joining the fake, self-described "nonpartisan" group Civic Alliance. However we also give credit to Menards, Ace and Lowe's for not joining either!

 

We give HD credit for the fact that employee and/or PAC donations still favor Republicans.

 

Lowes is worse than Home Depot!

 

THE BOTTOM LINE:

Home Depot is far from perfect. We note that Home Depot was under attack by leftists. We supported Home Depot for a period of time.

 

Home Depot management might want to take note that the leftist mob is never satisfied. You're only as good as your compliance with their latest ransom demand, otherwise they will turn against you at the drop of a hat.

 

Keep in mind that HD sells more than just hardware items. HD can be a better alternative than Amazon.com, which is a despicable company that should never be supported.

 

 

ALTERNATIVES:

1. Murdochs.com - Online ranch and home supplies store, based in Casper, Wyoming.

2. Atwoods.com - Online ranch and home supplies store, based in Oklahoma.

3. Do-it Center -

4. RuralKing.com - Farm and home store, including laundry detergent, pet food, toys, etc.

5. Ace Hardware is a franchise, therefore you should judge each store individually. We like smaller, individual companies that can't abuse their power. As a whole, Ace employee/PAC donations are more Republican leaning than Democrat.

6. Menards Home Improvement store affiliates have historically been heavy Republican donors, however they started to waiver in 2020, becoming more centrist. Donations were made to Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. Still carries MyPillow! This is a regional midwestern chain. Please support their online store if you don't have a physical store near you.

7. Lowes - This racist company has gone full woke! Lowes teaches critical race theory to employees, urging white employees to "cede power to people of color." We are also troubled by this company's choice to lavishly reward the BLM terrorists. In apparent response to the BLM riots, the company donated a whopping 25 million dollars to "minority owned businesses", thus discriminating against people who don't have the preferred skin pigmentation.
