"Target Loses $9B in Week"

That's kind of like a "de-multiplier," right? Keep it up, folks!

Jesus presented another parable to them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went away. But when the wheat sprouted and bore grain, then the tares became evident also. The slaves of the landowner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ And he said to them, ‘An enemy has done this!’ The slaves said to him, ‘Do you want us, then, to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No; for while you are gathering up the tares, you may uproot the wheat with them. Allow both to grow together until the harvest; and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather up the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them up; but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”

— Matthew 13:24-30 NASB1995

"because most of us don’t feel like having divergent mating practices shoved in our faces while we’re shopping for a new toaster oven" - LOL, funniest line of the day. This was an excellent writeup on Target and it really helped clarify for me why this thing set me off so much. The satanist angle was the biggest offense for me. And the targeting of kids of course. What a horrible company...we deleted the app and got off the mailing list. No more Target for this family. Idiots. "Satan Respects Pronouns" - yeah, I'll bet he does. I'm sure he loves this division & nonsense.

stubble on SaMANtha's chin? Her GUYLashes and Manscara may be purchased at Target. The term TRANSFAT has new meaning.

A word about atheists: Speaking for myself (and perhaps others as well) I see a difference between being non-religious (including atheist) and anti-religious. As a non-religious person I not only welcome religiosity (especially its values, virtues and morals) but I see religion as a good —not only for society, but for the person who is religious. In my view, opposing crèche scenes at Christmas is anti-religious, as is glorifying Satan (even though I don’t believe in Satan).

It's not just that this stuff is aimed at kids (which is despicable) but that it's in our face everywhere we go. This kind of kink/perversion used to be segregated into small shops in the seedy part of town, if that's what you wanted you went there (while hoping your boss, pastor, or mother-in-law wasn't driving by while walking in). People who didn't want to see it didn't.

That's gone now as Target and these other companies force it down our throats whether we like it or not. Things weren't just fine before but they suddenly crossed the line with kids. They crossed the line long ago when they tried to normalize this stuff in general. Pushing it on kids just made their intentions so obvious it became impossible to ignore.

That's why this whole argument about whether "tuck friendly" swimsuits were in the kid's section or not is irrelevant. The fact they are in the store at all is the problem. Yet again conservatives are being duped into arguing on the left's terms rather than rejecting the premise of the argument. They call Republicans the stupid party for good reason.

I’m starting to believe Abpallen and Alissa Heinerscheid are actually culture-jamming double agents embedded at Woke ESG-score–chasing corporations to take them down from the inside. If so, it is a brilliant strategy and needs to be replicated across all BlackRock/Vanguard dependents. BRAVO, comrades! 👏

Thank you for all you do to keep us informed with real news.

Nailed it again Jeff! Excellent commentary on Target. Thank you for addressing this in detail! The media brainwashing is so effective, even I have a hard time explaining to my 73 year old mother why we can't accept these things, and what we stand for, like with Bud Light. Jason Whitlock who is also a brilliant writer, and a Black Christian Conservative, wrote an excellent article about pride a few days ago, posted to his twitter.

"You know, it used to be kind of difficult to get conservatives on board for boycotts, for a host of reasons, but — like a Clydesdale-led miracle — the phony Anheuser-Busch beer company and its hypomanic spokesman-slash-girl seem to have taught our folks how to do it."

This may be old, but I just saw it: someone referred to the parent company of Budweiser as Transheuser-Busch.

"Number one, kids don’t need to know about gay sex." I agree 100%, however, the fact is that kids don't need to know about ANY sex. Period. I am rearing my 10-year-old grandson (since he was 3 1/2). I have already had the "talk" with him about "good touches/bad touches" and "stranger danger." I did so without having to explain adult sexual practices. When he reaches the age when he has the physical ability to procreate (when puberty hits and his body starts making sperm), I will have a good, long sit-down with him. Until then, he's just gonna be a kid. I am baffled and enraged by people, especially parents, who are so willing to rob children of their childhood by unnecessarily exposing them to what should be adult-only issues, whether it's pushing the kind of BS that Target is doing, taking their kids to drag shows, or allowing inappropriate reading material in our and middle school libraries. JMHO

Are you telling me that those photographs are actually clothing being marketed to kids? Or are I would not have believed it if I did not see the pictures. Target is finished for me as well.

This whole linking of Satan to LGBQT etc. is both informative and scary. Where will this thing end?

An observation on Target: This doesn’t seem to be a “mad as hell, raise the volume , picket the store” kind of boycott. More like “quiet quitting”. Just a simple, silent, mindful, thoughtful decision of “I think I’ll go someplace else”….which I think is far more effective. The MSM is flummoxed. No yelling and screaming. They find that incomprehensible.

“It’s a NEW kind of Satanism, not that old blood-drinking, orgy holding, child-sacrificing kind. It’s a “Neo-Satanism.”

I think its still child-sacrificing with its adoration for abortion and trans-surgery, but much more visible and bold than ever before.

“Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons”

All the rainbow merchandise was still in the front yesterday at “my” Target at the Steelyard store in Cleveland. An overweight black mom wearing a fabulous Pride T shirt was wandering around the large display with her 2 kids ALSO wearing Pridewear and they were begging her for new outfits. So IN FACT Target has done nothing. The Mom was looking at them....well proudly. No one else was shopping the display.
