The big box retailer Target is feeling the backlash of a conservative group because of the company’s adoption of a policy that allows costumers to use the bathroom or dressing room of their choice.
Fearing Target’s policy will put young girls and women at risk, the American Family Association initiated a petition to boycott the company. In only a short period of time, the petition has over 500,000 signatures.
Target’s support of the left-wing agenda is a reaction to a 2010 boycott threat by the LGBT community that was upset the company gave a political contribution to a political organization that supported a Republican candidate for governor of Minnesota.
In an effort to appease the LGBT community, Target has totally reversed course and gone all in to support the social agenda of this special interest group.
Target’s decision to aggressively support a controversial social issue has put its shareholders at risk.
In this episode of “The Buzz,” Deneen describes Target as a text book example of how left-wing groups use intimidation as a means to hijack a company to advance their cause while putting shareholders at risk.
