Poor guy and he was just trying to enjoy his Sunday dinner with his family. Muah.
Spoken like a man who knows he’s going to die in prison.

Disturbing news out of California:
In the midst of Pride month, a disturbing incident marred the inclusive spirit as fliers containing derogatory remarks about the LGBTQ+ community were discovered on multiple cars outside a Target store.
According to Ashley Rawson, a person who received one of the fliers, they spent a brief period of time in the Target store before discovering the offensive flyer on their car’s windshield upon returning.
Rawson reportedly observed that at least two rows of cars in the vicinity had also been targeted with the same flyer attached to their windshields. KRCR interviewed an anonymous Target employee who claimed they had received verbal backlash after the display of Pride merchandise.Redding’s ABC affiliate

The Toronto Blue Jays have stepped up to the plate and cut “Christian” pitcher Anthony Bass, on Friday. Bass made headlines last week after sharing a post on social media that called for anti-LGBT+ boycotts of Target and Bud Light. The shared post described the sale of LGBT+ merchandise as “evil” and “demonic.”
In an interview on Thursday Bass said he chose to delete the post because “it was the right thing to do” and because he didn’t want it to be a distraction to the team. “But I stand by my personal beliefs,” Bass said, “and everyone is entitled to their personal beliefs, right? Also, I mean no harm towards any groups of people.”
“My focus from the get-go should have been doing my job and being accepting of everyone’s decisions and views in life,” Bass said. “Through this process, I’ve learned that. Moving forward, I will definitely know better than to post my personal beliefs on my social media platforms.”
And with that backhanded non-apology Bass was OUT.
Toronto general manager Ross Atkins said Friday that both the controversy and Bass’ on-field performance led to the move.
“Performance was a large aspect of the decision,” Atkins said. “Distraction was a small part of it and something we had to factor in.”
By designating Bass for assignment, the Blue Jays now have seven days to trade him or place him on irrevocable outright waivers.
Retail giant Walmart said on Wednesday that it has no plans to discontinue or remove LGBT-Pride Month merchandise, a week after rival Target pulled some LGBTQ-themed products following backlash organized by CPAC and the GOP.
Walmart’s Pride-themed merchandise tied to Pride Month includes rainbow-adorned flags, clothing, and accessories. Its “Pride & Joy” collection includes a $7.98 set of enamel pins with messages such as “Be you. Be Proud.” and “You are enough.”
“We haven’t changed anything in our assortment,” Latriece Watkins, Walmart’s chief merchandising officer, said.
The GOP-led attack on Target and LGBT Pride Month is now including Kohl’s as its next victim.
Will they take on Walmart? Doubtful, it’s far too big.
But what about one of the other the right-wing ‘s favorite weekend shopping hangouts?
Many people believe that the boycott against Target and LGBT Americans is the work of some religious anti-gay hate groups and the ultra-rightwing Q nut jobs.
It is being pushed by what is now America’s largest anti-LGBT Hate Group.
The Republican Party itself.
CPAC – The Conservative Political Action Conference is a annual Republican political conference attended by conservative activists and elected officials from across the United States and beyond. CPAC is hosted by the American Conservative Union and has been held since 1974.

ATTN: Mr. Brian Cornell
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Target Corporation
From: The American people
Dear Mr. Cornell:
As one of the nation’s largest private employers and department stores, Target has become a beloved merchant by families across our great country. Recently though, conservative and religious Americans have become deeply troubled by your partnership with an individual who practices satanism, along with your apparent embrace of radical gender ideology, which seeks to sterilize and brutalize the bodies of the youth.
It is disturbing to the many families of shoppers from religious backgrounds that Target Corporation partnered with Erik Carnell, a self-declared “satanist” to design the new “Pride Month” collection of items. Carnell openly flaunts his anti-Christian agenda posting that “Satan respects pronouns,” selling items with phrases like, “Trans Witches for Abortion,” and participating in a “satanic flea market” in London called an “anti Christmas fayre.” Someone like this should never be promoted by a company which purports to support families, especially not to create items geared toward children.
For example, it has now been widely reported that your stores are targeting young children with more than 2,000 products including “tuck friendly” swimsuits, chest binders, music, home furnishings, and products geared toward kids between the ages of 2-8 with phrases like “gender fluid,” “queer all year,” “Bye Bye, Binary,” “Pride 1,2,3” and “I’m not a girl.” Not only is such content inappropriate for children in those age groups, but it also seeks to confuse and tacitly endorse a pathway to gruesome irreversible procedures like vaginoplasty, metoidioplasty, and masculinizing chest surgery. These are procedures where healthy functioning body parts are distorted and destroyed to perpetuate false and radical reflections of human biology.
Also troubling is your organization’s promotion of abortion by paying to facilitate out-of-state abortions for your employees. Target’s anti-life policy thereby enlists unknowing customers to subsidize a practice which they morally oppose.
Surely as board members with a fiduciary responsibility to your shareholders, you must understand that Target’s embrace of radical gender ideology is alienating millions of your customers who will take their business elsewhere.
In the past, Target has relied on center-right and conservative organizations to further policies that benefited Target, its shareholders, and its customers. And when anti-capitalist politicians and activists attacked the company for its success and profitability, we stepped up to defend Target. However, we can no longer tolerate your leftist policy agenda – particularly when it facilitates demonic messaging and the destruction of the American family.
CPAC has sent this petition link out out to well over 100,000,000 people on their email/mailing lists.
And they have it listed brazenly on their website reaching million more each day.
How do we ever compete without any LGBT leaders or LGBT organizations that have any worth any more? (Except for Lambda Legal. PLEASE SUPPORT THEM.)
Your answers are as good as mine.
Please list them in the comments below.

Conservative groups critical of Target’s bathroom policies are stepping up their boycott against the chain store giant this coming Christmas, urging conservative shoppers not to support what they call a “radical social agenda.”
Lance Wray, executive director of watchdog group 2ndVote, said that last year its #AnywhereButTARGET campaign helped see a three percent drop in sales over the Christmas season for Target, along with a 43 percent profits decrease.
USA Today reported earlier in November that Target’s latest quarter report, ending Oct. 28, brought good newsfor the company with an uptick in sales and traffic.
Target revealed that sales at stores open for a year or more “crept up 0.9% in the three-month period ending Oct. 28, while overall sales rose 1.4% to $16.7 billion as compared to $16.4 billion in 2016.”
So, shop Target. Got it.

Despite the drastic financial blowback Target Corporation has been weathering since announcing its plan last year to allow men to enter women’s bathroom facilities, the retail giant is continuing full-speed ahead in its pursuit of LGBT social activism, all in the name of “inclusivity.”
For the second year, Target is using a #TakePride hashtag on social media to promote its rainbow-themed online merchandise. The retailer’s “pride” paraphernalia include tee-shirts, swim trunks, flip-flops, headphones, iPhone cases and an assortment of other products emblazoned with LBGT logos.
“Target said it missed its 2016 Incentive EBIT [earnings before interest and taxes] goal of $5.74 billion by $623 million and fell short of its adjusted sales target of $71.62 billion by $2.13 billion,” Reuters reported last week.
In contrast, rival Wal-Mart Stores gave CEO Doug McMillon a 13 percent pay hike, following strong sales performance at the world’s largest retailer. A number of retailers, including Wal-Mart, have policies similar to Target’s, however, they have refrained from publicizing them.
Let’s do some math. Instead of their projected earnings of $5.74 billion, they earned $5.117 billion. And they fell short of their sales goal: instead of $71.62 billion, they ONLY sold $69.49 billion!
OH MY GOD THEY’RE TOTALLY GOING OUT OF BUSINESS YOU GUYS!

Riccardo D’Orsainville, is accused of meeting older gentlemen through a mature men’s website and drugging his victims and stealing their artwork, jewelry, electronics and designer clothes. He pleaded not guilty Wednesday to the crimes committed in 2013 and has been charged with kidnapping, poisoning, larceny and receiving stolen property, and his bond was reduced from $250,000 to $100,000.
From The Boston Globe:
Authorities have said D’Orsainville passed himself off as a wealthy European, and contacted one of the victims through Silver Daddies, a website for older gay men looking for sexual partners. Two others, he allegedly met at a bar.
The victims brought him to their homes, had a few drinks with him, and passed out. All regained consciousness to find artwork and designer clothes were missing, prosecutors have said.
D’Orsainville allegedly stole a tuxedo from one man. Another victim woke up with his hands bound behind his back
D’Orsainville is a Haitian national who has a lengthy criminal record, including credit card fraud and embezzlement. However, federal authorities have not deported him because he’s gay and could face discrimination in Haiti.
D’Orsainville claims that his victims only reported the crimes because they had “relationship regret” and “buyer’s remorse.”
Watch a report below.
A homemade bomb exploded in the women’s bathroom at a Target store in Evanston on Wednesday night , with officials investigating whether it’s connected to “Christian” protestors who have been harassing the company’s new policy allowing transgender people to use the bathroom and changing rooms of their choice.
Commander Joe Dugan says no one was inside the bathroom when the small explosion happened a little after 4 o’clock. It caused minor damage and no one was injured. Early indications are that a plastic bottle was used but no projectiles like nails or tacks were inside it. Investigators are gathering evidence including examining store security camera video.
Target has been under attack recently for its stand on allowing people in the LGBT community to choose whichever bathroom they identify mostly with, either male or female, stating the company welcomes, “transgendered team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.”
Supposedly 700,000 people signed an online petition promising to boycott Target, shareholders meeting have been crashed by extremist religious leaders, and “Christian” protestors (aka Street Screechers) have protested individual stores using bullhorns denouncing Target and LGBT community in the name of God.

Holy rolling extremist “Screecher Preachers” continue to invade and “rebuke” Target stores across the country abusing customers and staff by screaming anti-lgbt propaganda over the retail chains trans inclusive rest and changing room policies doing little more than making fools of themselves.
Support TARGET and piss off a KKK-ristian today.
