An 85-year-old man who has raised over $100,000 for the Salvation Army has been banned from collecting donations outside a Seattle Nordstrom.
The ban comes amid outcry from the left that the Salvation Army isn’t pro-LGBT enough.
Dick Clarke had been collecting donations outside the store for 18 years without any problems. This year, however, the retired teacher and principal was met with absolute grinches.
â€œThe best thing I like about Thanksgiving is the next day I go to work,â€ Clarke said of his efforts to give back.
Instead of supporting his noble efforts, Nordstrom informed Clarke that he would no longer be allowed to fundraise by their doors.
“Nordstrom spokeswoman Jennifer Tice Walker did not answer questions about the change. But Clarke said he was told in a meeting last week with head of stores Jamie Nordstrom that LGBTQ employees said The Salvation Armyâ€™s presence made them uncomfortable,” the Seattle Times reports.
The disdain for the Christian charity isn’t just effecting bell ringers. Just before Christmas, a fleet of Salvation Army vans in Kansas City were sabotaged, leaving them unable to deliver holiday meals and toys for under privileged children.
Despite the obvious need for this type of charity, the Salvation Army has been under attack in recent months after Democrat Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg was photographed ringing a bell for them and the woke mob decided that they were bad for being religious.
â€œPete Buttigieg Volunteered for the Homophobic Salvation Army,â€ a headline in the gay magazine Out read.
The left also bullied Chik-fil-A into stopping their donations to the organization.
“The city of Seattle, which like King County contracts with The Salvation Army to provide homeless shelters, will next month begin an ‘equity audit’ in response to ‘concerns expressed by the community that Salvation Army is not a safe place for LBGTQ persons experiencing homelessness,’ wrote Jason Johnson, acting director of the cityâ€™s Human Services Department, in a letter to Salvation Army officials in early December,” the Seattle Times report continues.

Get on their platforms and Fight Back against hateful progressive liberal’s tyranny!
Support Mike Dice as he continues to fight front and center the leftist globalist ploy to bury America! FIGHT BACK!
Politics is down stream from culture – no joke Sherlock! This is total b.s.! There are two genders! That’s it. You are not a pronoun! You are a human being (questionably), with a pension to play the expecting victim and insist on making the rest of the world pay for your inability to function in normal society! Then have the audacity to shame people into submission of this ridiculously PC culture madness being perpetrated on the public! Bullshit from beginning to end. Wake up America they are trying to make it law that your words that come out of your mouth right wrong or indifferent will become liable to anyone, anywhere. What’s that you here? The death knell of Free Speech?? These “children” need to grow up, get hit hard in the face with a real trauma, not some bullshit line “I’m offended!” Personally I would sue them first for ruining my day simply by being in my space. Two can play at this game! ~TiLT
