“Target cowtows to extremist fascist snowflakes”
This seems like the same path Bud light took. They went extreme and now will tick everybody off.
They should have just left it alone and trespassed anyone that threatened their employees. Instead of sticking up for their employees on a local level they made national news trying to placate right wing nuts.
So the terrorism is working well.
Target is a business that wants your money. They can, and probably have, banned anyone damaging stuff in their stores.
They wouldn’t remove products that make them money. Notably they only removed a few products. So I feel like NPR isn’t telling us the whole story.
I remember an Aesop fable from childhood that covers this exact situation. The one about [a man, his son, and a donkey.](https://fablesofaesop.com/the-miller-his-son-and-their-ass.html)
More likely, they’ve heard boycott threats from the right and are trying to stave off a bud light like news cycle. Blaming it on nebulous physical threats gives them cover against complaints from the left.
imagine the entitlement of assuming that you get to decide what products a business can sell in a country with a wide variety of diverse sexual identities. This level of wack-a-doodle is Unamerican
IMPOSSIBLE CHALLENGE: Celebrate pride month without targeting kids
I’m scared. I’m really scared. You can see corporations this and corporations that, but the thing is, real people are celebrating this. Real, normal people want this. Corporations exist to make money. I understand that, I get that. But what do the people making these threats want? How far will this go? Am I going to get in trouble because I tell my kids that LGBGQ+ people have worth? Am I going to go to jail for flying a rainbow? Are women not going to be allowed to wear pants?
These sound ridiculous but again, where does this end?
Calls everyone snowflakes/Gives verbal threats to people over rainbows.
Puts on target
Cowards. Oh, right, go right ahead, just let the bullies get their way 😡
Violence wins. If left leaning folks play by the rules, then it’s an uneven playing field. The left will lose if they believe everyone should be honest and play fair
And what happens if someone threatens employee safety if they don’t sell pride products? -I’m just curious to see what they’re opening themselves up to by bowing to terroristic threats.
What the fuck is happening in this fucking country?
