Target in panic mode after cozying up with LGBTQ mob sparks customer boycott

Target in panic mode after cozying up with LGBTQ mob sparks customer boycott

Bonus: Target buddies up Satanic “trans man” just in time for pride month

Now they done gone too far. Major retailer Target is in panic mode after their alters to pride celebration pride celebrations this year targeted toddlers with tucking and binding clothing.

Target has been annoyingly woke for a while now, something shoppers like me have mostly ignored because if I boycotted every single woke retailer, I’d be sitting here knitting clothes for my children between blog posts, which to be honest, is starting to sound more appealing with every passing woke atrocity. But anyway, Target.

Binding and tucking clothes to toddlers, onesies with pride messages, and cards that read “I’m glad you came out” and “I’m happy that you’re queer” in the kids’ section have also been spotted in Target.

Watch here.

News of such merchandise was unbelievable. But then moms started videoing the merchandise showing up in their local Targets and then sharing those videos to social media, everyone encouraging a boycott to send a very loud message — best take that pervy business outta here and back off our babies.

Us good folk down south raised enough cain by refusing to shop at Target that the retailer held an “emergency meeting.”

Fox News has more:

Some southern Target stores were forced by the corporation to move LGBTQ Pride merchandise away from the front of their locations after customer “outrage” to avoid a “Bud Light situation.”

Many Target locations across the country feature massive June Pride month displays on an annual basis, with items this year ranging from “tuck friendly” bathing suits for transgender people to mugs that say “gender fluid.” But the retail juggernaut has been criticized by some conservatives for the displays, with children’s items particularly irking many customers.

A Target insider told Fox News Digital that many locations, mostly in rural areas of the South, have relocated Pride sections to avoid the kind of backlash Bud Light has received in recent weeks after using a transgender influencer in a promotional campaign.

A Target insider said there were “emergency” calls on Friday and that some managers and district senior directors were told to tamp down the Pride sections immediately.

“We were given 36 hours, told to take all of our Pride stuff, the entire section, and move it into a section that’s a third the size. From the front of the store to the back of the store, you can’t have anything on mannequins and no large signage,” the Target insider said.

“We call our customers ‘guests,’ there is outrage on their part. This year, it is just exponentially more than any other year,” the Target insider continued. “I think given the current situation with Bud Light, the company is terrified of a Bud Light situation.”

The insider, who has worked at the retailer for almost two decades, said Target rarely makes such hasty decisions. They said Friday’s call began with roughly 10 minutes on “how to deal with team member safety” because of the amount of backlash the Pride merchandise has generated, noting that Target Asset Protect & Corporate Security teams were present on the call.

But that’s only in a few stores down south. Their pride merchandise has been moved to the back of some stores but is still available in the kids’ sections and online.  That ain’t good enough.

But wait, there’s more!

In the background, Target has also buddied up with a chick pretending to be a dude who creates bubbly, colorful, and literally Satanic images. So please, Target Crisis PR people, explain this one away.

They’re literally telling us who they are and what they’re trying to do here.

What Target doesn’t understand is that this is FAR worse than whatever “Bud Light situation” they might be fearing. Bud Light went full Radical Chic by hiring a dude dressed as a girl to sell beer to… dudes? That’s more foolish stupidity and miscalculation than it is malicious. Target though has committed an unforgivable offense — they’re purposely, willingly, and knowingly targeting our children. There is no coming back from that.

I, for one, am out. SO out. We won’t set foot into any establishment that is preying upon and attempting to groom children, to sexualize them from infancy. That is normalizing body mutilation. That is pushing the worst kinds of evil and witchcraft in open defiance to our Creator and the splendor of his Creation.  For those making these decisions I pray for mercy. I pray they come to know truth because Luke 17:2 doesn’t mince words here.

Update (5/24/23 4:29 PM): Target claims “tuck-friendly” swimwear is only available in adult sizes. Which makes it totally OK. Or so AP’s fact-checkers claim:

CLAIM: Target’s Pride collection features a bathing suit for kids that is labeled “tuck-friendly.”

AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. The “tuck-friendly” swimsuits are only offered in adult sizes, according to a spokesperson for the company and Target’s website. Kids’ swimsuits in the collection do not feature this label.

However, the swimsuits labeled “tuck-friendly” are only in adult sizes, and are not available in kids’ sizes, Kayla Castaneda, a spokesperson for Target, told The Associated Press.

Both the colorful one-piece and black swim bottoms seen in the photos and videos online are clearly labeled on Target’s website as adult swimsuits. Both pages list the products as coming in “general adult sizing” and offer adult XS as the smallest size for sale.

“The ‘tuck-friendly’ swim suits are for adults only,” Castaneda said. The kids’ swimsuits in the Pride collection are not the same design or construction and do not have the same label, Castaneda confirmed.

At a Target in New York City’s downtown Brooklyn neighborhood that the AP visited on Monday, the same adult swimsuits shown on social media featured the “tuck-friendly” tag, while a kids’ black swimskirt for sale instead had a tag reading: “Thoughtfully Fit on Multiple Body Types and Gender Expressions.”

The Pride apparel for kids, adults and pets was located together at the front of the store, in an area often used for seasonal or limited-edition collections, and not in the children’s section.

Jonathan Cahn is going to have a field day with all this.

He published a book not long ago, called “The Return of the Gods.” Practically Every. Last. Thing from the Target campaign, he exposed (predicted, perhaps) in his book. I have been reading it recently. This is no surprise to me.

As for knitting clothes for your little ones, I think a lot of moms may have to do just that, at least until someone begins selling clothing online for families who don’t want to give a penny to Target and other “woke” companies.

    Naomi Wolf has also been musing on the possibility that what we are seeing today is the literal return of evil Biblical powers. Wolf still considers herself a dedicated liberal, but she is a devout Jew, and also has been partially redpilled by her cancellation over being censored in presenting the real science of COVID, the science the media now reluctantly admits was true all along..

    Morning Sunshine in reply to theduchessofkitty. | May 24, 2023 at 8:34 am

    you think the co-opting of the rainbow for their symbol was random? No – the Rainbow was a sign from God that He would not again destroy the earth because of wickedness. No matter how wicked. Satan took that symbol as a big giant middle finger to God and His people.

Normies are DONE with this crap.

They’re sick if it being shoved in their faces everywhere they go, sick of the screaming dangerhairs lecturing them, and SICK of the melodramatic YOU ARE ENCOURAGING VIOLENCE crap.

And most of all, they’re SICK of pretending that it isn’t behavior of sick deviants to talk to children about it.

“…I’d be sitting here knitting clothes for my children between blog posts, which to be honest, is starting to sound more appealing with every passing woke atrocity. ”

Hey, I’m knitting a wedding dress right now! You might find it soothing to knit. A word of warning…it’s addicting!

Target. Still disrespecting us because this crap is still in the store, just in back.
So finished with them.

    1. Go to Target.
    2. Fill your cart with what you want to buy.
    3. Take the cart to the “Pride” Section.
    4. Abandon Cart.
    5. Go elsewhere.

    Maybe leave a note. But mostly just get others to also do this.

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to Martin. | May 24, 2023 at 5:13 pm

      So, do that. Feel better now?

      Then some poor bastard who works there has to re-stock it all. Some can’t just “get a job elsewhere” when other retailers all over town are shutting down.

      So, do that. Feel better now?

    Kemberlee Kaye in reply to herm2416. | May 24, 2023 at 12:16 pm

    I really want to learn to knit. I do other needle work and it’s very therapeutic. With having small kids, I can pick it up and put it down as schedule demands.

      herm2416 in reply to Kemberlee Kaye. | May 24, 2023 at 2:14 pm

      Oh, I have a number of projects going at any time! I did when my children were younger, too. It was decompression after homeschooling all day.
      YouTube has a lot of great learn to knit videos.

What these woke corporations don’t seem to understand is that conservatives represent tens of billions of dollars in purchasing power and we are tired of being either insulted or ignored. If conservatives can get organized and start boycotting these woke corporations theyse corporations will be in for a world of serious pain.

    henrybowman in reply to CountMontyC. | May 24, 2023 at 3:18 am

    “I think given the current situation with Bud Light, the company is terrified of a Bud Light situation.”

    And this tells you we have already won the Bud Light battle.
    Not to say we should stop now, and lose our gains. Keep the boycott on.
    Yes, these people have transed me into a vindictive son of a bitch. And it’s all on them.

      Dimsdale in reply to henrybowman. | May 24, 2023 at 8:12 am

      Hang this woke garbage like an albatross around their necks. Make them pay.

      Maybe Target should change its name to “Groomer,” because that’s the way I think of it.

      Martin in reply to henrybowman. | May 24, 2023 at 10:47 am

      You are correct. We cannot stop. AB/Inbev must be destroyed utterly not just Bud light.
      When is is bankrupt and selling off brands at pennies on the dollar that will be enough.
      Unconditional Surrender or you haven’t really won.

    MattMusson in reply to CountMontyC. | May 24, 2023 at 6:41 am

    Corporations don’t realize that interaction with LGBTQ Community can suddenly veer off course with a devastating effect. You think you are dealing with ‘normal ordinary’ Gay people and suddenly you find your designer is out tweeting support of Pedophilia. Or a group of Drag Queen Nuns show up touting Satanism.

    Companies trying to show how progressive they are end up advertising Pedophilia and Satanism – A Bridge Too Far.

        Wow. Just read that post. I highly recommend it to anyone with the time. Andrew Sullivan gives the viewpoint of a Gay man who is forced to live in a Queer world.
        Thanks, Whitewall.

        Martin in reply to Whitewall. | May 24, 2023 at 11:08 am

        Here is the problem we have. Most of us are kind of like the well known quote: “I Really Don’t Mind What People Do, So Long As They Don’t Do It In the Street and Frighten the Horses”

        Unfortunately, while they are a small percentage there are a large number of people are not willing to do that. They don’t want acceptance they want to rub it in your face. They want to destroy innocence. Anything short of celebration of the worst acts is not enough for them.

          Whitewall in reply to Martin. | May 24, 2023 at 2:47 pm

          Yes, quite right. Destruction of innocents and innocence. The wrath of the Lord may find them for it and not just in the End Days.

    AF_Chief_Master_Sgt in reply to CountMontyC. | May 24, 2023 at 7:56 am

    Sorry. Ain’t happening.

    Conservatives are weak, go along to get along, forgiving of those who would do them in. Christian conservatives the worst. Global corporations shit on them, and they turn the other cheek. “Please, shit on me some more.”

    I have said that conservatives would not object to being hung in the town square as long as the rope was clean.

    My SIL is Christian, but sees no problem with my niece working at Target. She also sees no problem with shopping at Target because “I don’t shop in that section.

    The issue. Conservatives are not a monolithic group of people who are part of a cult like the left is. Conservatives are individualistic and are for the most part incapable of group think and group rage. Conservatives are too busy working to even consider the level of effort it takes to protest day in and day out.

    Me. I am more of an in your face, curse and insult them kinda guy. I won’t back down from a fight.

    I have seen the enemy, and it is us.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair | May 24, 2023 at 12:11 am

At some point, some of these perverts have to start being put in jail.

We used to have laws concerning “corrupting the morals of a minor”, which is the very least of what these deranged lunatics are doing. These are sick, sick people – the worst errors that the “trial and error” of evolution has ever puked onto the Earth.

It’s got to be that Human Rights Campaign rating. Too many boneheaded corporations, although no doubt some believe the underlying garbage that there is rampant discrimination.

At this point, why does there need to be a Pride month that requires fealty?

    henrybowman in reply to oldschooltwentysix. | May 24, 2023 at 3:19 am

    Hey, Target is so proud of Pride that they’re hiding it in the closet in the back of the store.

      CommoChief in reply to henrybowman. | May 24, 2023 at 7:57 am

      The other bubbling issue is the growing call within the LGB community to sever the rest of the alphabet folks who claim to be part of their movement. I had this discussion about trans with one of my gay acquaintances in 2014.

      Told him the normies have for the most part gotten over gay prejudice and were willing to tolerate if not embrace it, but that the trans folks were going ruin that willingness to tolerate if the LGB didn’t keep the trans and other extreme weirdos at arms length. He was an eternal optimist and couldn’t wrap his head around the idea that the majority was still a majority despite the gains for gay rights and that things can always move backwards instead of forwards.

        The Gentle Grizzly in reply to CommoChief. | May 24, 2023 at 5:17 pm

        Being a “G” I really do wish the rest who have latched on for the free ride would just go away.

        I also don’t appreciate the NAACP “embracing” us in their “battles”.

inspectorudy | May 24, 2023 at 1:43 am

As egregious as this crap is with children, the same thing is happening with the ad world and their elimination of the white whole family and the normal straight white male. Just watch the crap they shove down our throats with mixed marriages and no white people in sight unless they are secondary characters in the ad. We make up over 60% of the US population but get no respect because our money is taken for granted by big corporations. I believe it is the millennial generation that is responsible for this. I wish there was a way for a national boycott of all companies that use these destructive and disrespectful ads. As normal healthy Americans, we have to fight back.

    scooterjay in reply to inspectorudy. | May 24, 2023 at 5:56 am

    I’m glad I am not alone in noticing that.
    Time for white men to go Galt.

      Morning Sunshine in reply to scooterjay. | May 24, 2023 at 8:40 am

      I am not noticing that. But we have not had tv in the 20+ years we have been married. We watch our movies and “tv” via DVD and the occasional stream. My husband has managed to block all ads on our computers.
      My kids barely know what an advertisement is, much less a commercial.

      I am not saying I doubt you. Just saying that I am not participating in that part of modern culture. 🙂

    It is not just ads. Hallmark movies seems to have gone out of their way to make secondary characters Blacks or some other special group. You will often see some white woman sent out on assignment by her Black boss, where she meets the love of her life.

    nordic prince in reply to inspectorudy. | May 24, 2023 at 12:05 pm

    Not to mention Hollyweird and the comic industry – every superhero is at least gay, if not trans/queer/whatever the latest weirdness is.

    They’re trying to normalize perversion.

Blackgriffin | May 24, 2023 at 3:05 am

No point in boycotting if you don’t stick with it until the business bleeds so much money it either caves or dies. So, yes, boycott. But mean it and finish it.

    Whitewall in reply to Blackgriffin. | May 24, 2023 at 7:17 am

    Amen to that! If you see an army in retreat, it too must be pursued and finished off as much as possible lest you see them again.

      Dimsdale in reply to Whitewall. | May 24, 2023 at 8:15 am

      Let’s leave Target (and Anheiser Busch) economically flopping on the ground like a fish out of water.

        Whitewall in reply to Dimsdale. | May 24, 2023 at 8:24 am

        Speaking of fish, that’s where I am now….fishing at the coast. Well as soon as I get my old body to listen to my young mind and get out there.

          Morning Sunshine in reply to Whitewall. | May 24, 2023 at 8:41 am

          enjoy it – rumor has it that Biden is about to pass down a reg that will severely limit fishing and hunting. I haven’t been able to get details yet, just scare mongering.

          But yesterday’s conspiracy theory is tomorrow’s fact.

          JAL in reply to Whitewall. | May 24, 2023 at 10:02 am

          For Morning Sunshine below (O/T)… The feds want to outlaw use of lead on federal game lands (bullets, fishing sinkers etc) because of potential lead contamination for which they offer no evidence. So yes … that is the real source of the rumor. I forget when it is going up for public comment. Of course licenses and game stamps pay a significant part of costs of fed lands maintenance as well as providing wild life management, But hey, no one ever accused them of being intelligent,

How does this happen?
Every HR and PR departments in major corporations are infested with these useless, destructive Grievance/Ism/Studies majors that are absolutely unqualified for anything other than their pretentious vision. They are incapable, silly, dangerous and destructive…often finding their own employer to be the enemy of need of destruction.

    SDN in reply to puhiawa. | May 24, 2023 at 6:20 am

    In other words, they’ll think it’s their company, not yours, and if you do nothing about it…then they’re right.

    The problem is that you DON’T own the company:
    1. The tech companies that allow you to access the internet do. Remember Parler? Do you want to have to build all your own internet infrastructure, like Gab did?
    2. The banks do. ESG may be getting disguised, but it is, I promise you still a factor. “That line of credit you’ve had for years? We don’t think you’re a good fit as a customer, so we’re pulling it.”
    3. Most importantly, the state and federal regulators do, “3 felonies a day” won’t be a figure of speech, especially when they have lots of “whistleblowers” inside your company. And as soon as the whistles blow, firing them becomes “retaliation”.

    Point being, those activists have a thoroughly weaponized system for backup. It’s not going to be a matter of issuing a memo.

      Martin in reply to SDN. | May 24, 2023 at 10:55 am

      Three felonies a day was never a figure of speech. It was a warning. Essentially, “You are free because we don’t care enough about you to put you in jail. Make sure it stays that way” or if you prefer “Nice life you’ve got there. It would be a shame if anything happened to it.”

      bhwms in reply to SDN. | May 24, 2023 at 11:45 am

      Buy a share of stock and attend the annual shareholders meeting. Ask a question about how all this malarky is increasing your shareholder value – “why should I continue to own and invest in Target if you are actively making decisions to alienate large segments of the consumer base and decrease my shareholder value?”

      henrybowman in reply to SDN. | May 24, 2023 at 3:46 pm

      “Most importantly, the state and federal regulators do, “3 felonies a day” won’t be a figure of speech, especially when they have lots of “whistleblowers” inside your company. And as soon as the whistles blow, firing them becomes “retaliation”.

      I’ll just do what federal regulators do. Lock up all their worldly goods in a warehouse, or make them mysteriously disappear.

Here they are, Target’s board of directors. Note that they announce proudly that only one of them is an employee of the company, that they are “independent.” People on boards today have no connection with their customers, the people who shop in their stores, purchase tickets to their games, use their services.

Note the wide range of corporations they are from, affiliated with. Their independence is an independence from you and me, America at large, not from each other. These people and those who also “direct” those other companies are joined at the hip. They have no day-to-day connection with you and me; they are “independent” of us and deeply un-American in the most profound way. Their bios and backgrounds are available at the link.

Here is the Chat session I had with one of their representatives. Please note the second to last paragraph where Target is getting hit hard.

Doris: Hi! My name is Doris. How can I help you today?

Me: Hi, how do I make a complaint about Target carrying LGBTQ attire for kids and toddlers?

Doris: Sure, I can help you to take this complain also we have an email address where you can send it.

Me: Take my complaint. But yes, the email address would be fine.

Doris: Sure, this is the eamil [email protected].

Doris: Can you please share more details about the complain?

Doris: I see you are still typing and I will stay connected so you can share your concern.

Me: They are pushing attire inappropriate for kids and toddlers. Target must be aware of the Bud Light debacle. Just pass along my complaint. Kids don’t need’tuck’ friendly gear nor do they need exposure. Target recently directed stores to move apparel to back of store. Not good enough. Must be removed.

Me: Thank you.

Doris: I totally understand how frustrating it was and thank you for taking the time to share this with us today. I will be more than glad to escalate this to the appropriate team to look into it.

Doris: In the last few weeks, Target has lost a large number of customers, most likely if the situation continues to escalate, LGBTQ clothing will stop being in stores soon.
I will be more than happy to let them know
You really helped me a lot with your feedback and thanks for the patience you have had with Target.

Doris: Thank you for contacting Target, have a good rest of your day, bye!!

I wish I could boycott Target over this, but like the NFL and a whole bunch of others I boycotted them long ago. A ‘security breach’ cost me quite a bit of inconvenience and i said Never Again.

‘Satan Respects Pronouns’ — they have really clarified the battle lines there. Good vs Evil, now with pronouns as a weapon for one side…

    Start writing to Adidas about their men in women’s bathing suits.

    Same here. Target, Nike, Bud are easy boycotts for me. (haven’t been in Target since they issued their bathroom policy change years ago). I am having a harder time with Hershey but am trying to find alternatives.

We need to take a lesson from the left and the Muslims. You start making fun of our Christian beliefs and grooming young children it’s time for us to get more active. Destroy displays make a fuss protest outside the stores etc. Of course most of us don’t do that because we still work for a living.

    Sternverbs in reply to rlee2429. | May 24, 2023 at 10:13 am

    America’s vast amount of tolerance and collective freedom will, inevitably, be it’s downfall. It is an assailable paradox. Our freedom invites and encourages people who come here bent on the destruction of our way of life. In time, they will out number the good American people who believe in love and tolerance, and America will be no more.

    It is happening now. It is likely unstoppable…

I freaking LOVE Bud Light. Napalm. Pure Napalm.

Pride month? Lions, lionesses, and [unPlanned] cubs playing in gay revelry on the Isle of Lesbos?

That said, the albinophobic imagery (“Rainbow”) and rhetoric adopted by the politically congruent (“=”) representing the transgender spectrum is in poor taste.

Isn’t “target”, by Democratic/Dictatorial assertion, a microaggression?

Target: “Here. Hold my beer ….”

Normals: “You’re toast.”.

Just last week, Target’s CEO was whining about $500 MILLION in losses due to shoplifting and organized retail theft. But he and Target are reliably woke. So let them reap the rewards of the woke agenda. Both the Bud Light treatment and continued theft losses due to woke politicians’ and DAs’ (who Target supports politically) failure to hold criminals accountable.

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) on Tuesday slammed Target’s chief executive for pulling LGBTQ and Pride Month merchandise off of store shelves after facing backlash and threats of violence from some customers.

This designer also sells clothing with threatening messages.

The company sells clothing designs showing the phrases “We Bash Back” with a heart-shaped mace in the trans-flag colors, “Transphobe Collector” with a skull, and “Homophobe Headrest” with skulls beside a pastel guillotine.

I hereby proclaim June to be Normal Pride Month.
