AMERICA IS HAMMERING TARGET: #BoycottTarget Petition Swells To Over 1 MILLION Signatures…
100 Percent Fed Up ^ | 4/29/2016

Posted on 04/29/2016 8:46:48 AM PDT by BlackFemaleArmyCaptain

More than 1,000,000 people have signed the boycott pledge against Target, following the secretive decision by executives to open all of their stores’ bathrooms and changing rooms to people of both sexes.

“That’s a million families who are going to spread the word about Target, so they may not get those customers back,” or their money, said Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association, which has hosted the boycott.

And this is just ONE organization’s efforts. I imagine the number is actually many times that number. Let them operate on the “alleged” 2 - 3 %’s purchases. The percentage would be much lower if the MSM and school system’s weren’t so busy trying to convert straights into gays for the Agenda (21).

I’m not signing anything. But I’m also not going to go to Target anymore. Neither is my wife, who likes Target. All because of this policy. So, in addition to the million who have signed the petition, you’ll get millions more who will just never do business with them again.

I’d love to be a fly on the wall in Target HQ hearing their daily sales calls.

It’s not just a petition thing, it’s for real. At least in my area. Went back around the shopping center where Target is located again today, even more dead than yesterday.

My neighbor’s kid works there, he’s been told he’s about to be let go.

This will cause many to lose their jobs but bathroom safety for everyone should be more important.

Target chose not to give a dam so let the chips fall hard.

I thought the Trump folks, the media, and the ruling class said this was a non-factor and non-story?

SUM TING WONG?

NOTE TO SELF: Remember to SHORT SELL stock when a company goes politically correct catering to the homos.

Stop lying. We said no such thing. All Trump said is that there are existing laws to protect children and women and trannies have always been using the bathroom of their choice.

I don’t look at it as what’s important and what’s not. This is pure and simple free speech and right of choice. Who serves who? Voting with your dollar is the one thing we have left.

Yes most have similar policies, Target may have been the most public about it. It’s good to isolate one target and make an example of them, beat them down and move on to the next one. Alynsky would approve.

I stopped shopping at Target when they stopped allowing the Salvation Army to ring the bells in front of their stores at Christmas and I will NEVER ever shop there again. I don’t care if they get new conservative management! It would only be for show...hate folks will lose their jobs over this but once this policy was in place, folks really should have found somewhere else to work anyway.

Some of Trump supporters said exactly that.

Not saying you personally...but some of his mouth pieces did right after the story.

I don’t need to lie. These things take care of themselves.

Is this a real hammering, or is this just people in charge of this boycott asserting that Target is being hammered?

I'm not going to shop at Target, but I want to see if we are doing real damage or if this is really being ineffective.

I'm thinking Target's sales numbers would give us a more accurate picture of what is happening.

Yes. Time will tell. a 3% drop in stock is chicken feed. Let’s see where target is 6 months from now.

What?
What does that mean ‘a nothing burger’?
Non-story? non-issue? Distraction?
