By the time the market closed on Tuesday evening, the share prices for one of the nation’s biggest retailers, Target, reached its longest losing streak in close to five years. This, ladies and gentlemen, is a prime example of “go woke, go broke” in action. Bud Light tasted the wrath of the American consumer first, now it’s Target’s turn to get a lashing. And from the news coming out about other stores selling pro-LGBTQ merchandise to kids, they probably won’t be the last to get it either.
According to The Daily Wire, “Target’s share prices have fallen for eight straight days, plunging another 3.66% on Tuesday reaching $133.88 as the store has lost a staggering $12 billion in market value in the last 14 days to rest at $61.85 billion in the wake of a consumer boycott triggered by its LGBTQ merchandise.”
“What you’ve seen in recent days went well beyond discomfort, and it has been gut-wrenching to see what you’ve confronted in our aisles,” Target CEO Brian Cornell went on to to tell his employees a week ago, going on to add there were “two guiding principles when it came time for us to act: do all we can to keep our team safe, and do all we can to honor our commitment and connection to the LGBTQIA+ community.”
Or, you could actually listen to your customers and stop helping the pro-LGBTQ lobby groom young children to become oversexualized and victims of pedophilia. That seems like the right answer here.
Back in 2014, Target announced that it would no longer allow certain products on their shelves to be separated according to gender. However, they didn’t stop there. In 2016, the store introduced a line for kids that was gender-neutral, also revealing that transgender individuals would be allowed to use bathrooms of their preferred identity, which led to criticisms concerning compromised safety. Target eventually took $20 million and developed private bathrooms.
“The vice president for brand management at Target also serves as treasurer of an LGBT group that has received millions of dollars in donations from Target and urges schools to adopt policies to help trans and nonbinary school students hide their “gender identity” from their parents,” the report continued.
In the middle of May, the retailer reached out to both managers and senior directors in an “emergency” call after the backlash for the store’s Pride collection hit the internet. Some of the products that are included in the display are “tuck-friendly” female swimsuits.
The purpose of the calls was to provide direction for some of the company’s stores to take the Pride displays and figure out creative ways to make them a bit less prominent so they could avoid a “Bud Light situation,” according to a Target insider who spoke with Fox News.
“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 insider is believed to have said.
