Haters Launch “Anywhere But Target” Xmas Campaign

The Christian Post reports:

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 news for 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.”

    Got my Cartwheel membership and gift cards at the ready, bring it on!

  • so wait. did their profits fall?
    or is that a lie too?
    shocking…

    • Moxie Miscellany

      *gasp*
      You don’t mean to tell me that far-right reactionaries LIED? Oh heavens!
      Next you’ll be telling me that they lied when they said desegregation would cause all the white women to be sexually assaulted by black men literally everywhere!

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    #anywherebuttarget should have Roy Moore be there spokesperson.

      He’s not allowed in the mall, remember?

  • Carl Edwards

    Dang….I just spent over $70 there yesterday. I should have gotten more.

    • Lakeview Bob

      God I envy you. Between HomoDepot and Wayfair I spent over $2200 yesterday. This madness has to stop. I would stop it but it was all for me.

    • ColoMtnWoman

      I normally don’t shop at Target, but I made a point to go there yesterday and drop $100+. Can’t let the ChurchLady’s warning go unheeded.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    Tomorrow I leave for Beverly Hills to get some plastic surgery (I’m fighting this aging thing) and I was just at Target buying a bunch of sleepwear as I recover in my massive suite at a Beverly Hills spa. So suck it haters!

    • i’ll be veggin out on the sofa with Netflix and Hulu as i age (40 on Dec 4).
      in my tiny apartment.
      in a box.

      • Also Dec 4 here: did you know that makes you NOT a Sagittarius but in fact Ophiuchus? The 13th sign (there used to be many many more than simply 12, which developed along with the Julian calendar I guess)

            I have a weak spot for the 7th sign. (sadly the video leaves out the end credits where the music really explodes)

            N.B. despite liking this film, I AM an atheist.

          • RaygunsGoZap

            Also an atheist but I loved this film. I enjoyed the Left Behind series for just the sci-fi fantasy horror of it all.

          • atheist who loves religious movies, also. that was a Bad movie that i sort of enjoyed. for that part, mostly.

          • Harley

            That is quite hypnotic, even mesmerizing, I feel like a strange force is entering my body,……oh, my.

          • that may be a thing called ASMR: Autonomic Sensory Meridian Response which some describe as a tingle or chill running up their back, sometimes in response to certain sounds. I’m one of the lucky ones, the Type A AsmR, who can initiate this tingle mentally. Learned how to do it after years of feeling a tingle when i stand to urinate. It may be similar to a thing called The Yoga Yawn

        • try having a husband who is 3 days younger. as we approach 40, you think he will ever let me forget who’s older?

          • BearEyes

            My hubby is 14 years younger. Wait till you’re asked what it was like when dirt was invented.
            Happy early birthday.

          • olandp

            I once dated a man much younger, we remained friends. It was during that time he asked me what it was like before electricity. I then knew how my mother felt when, as a kid, I asked her.

          • BearEyes

            I know exactly what you’re talking about.
            So how was it before electricity?
            /s

          • olandp

            I would imagine dark and smelly.

          • olandp

            I left out hot, before AC.

          • Bad Tom

            Cold and dark.

          • Amanda B. Rekendwith

            Bill Bryson, in “At Home: A Short History of Private Life” provides a great feeling for just how it was…
            We forget just how painfully dim the world was before electricity. A candle–a good candle–provides barely a hundredth of the illumination of a single 100-watt light bulb (a reason, perhaps. for the expression “By candle light a goat is lady-like.”). Open your refrigerator door and you summon forth more light than the total amount enjoyed by most households in the eighteenth century.

            Highly recommend this book. Provides a lot of history on how we’ve come to live the lives we do, and how things continually change.

          • BearEyes

            that does put things into perspective. Thanks.

            Just the other day my wife gave 20.00 to kids toys for Xmas, one the guys asked if she was a grandma, she said “how dare you give me that 20 back! ”
            Yrs. ago we were working in the front. A little boy used to come visit from a few houses down. I’m working up near the house Mary is down by the sidewalk talking with the little kid when I hear ” what’s your daddy doing “. Little ingrate! In fairness my wife is 4′ 11” 95lbs, cute as hell with the personality to match. Me 5’8” 135. Little old ladies would look at her then me with a sneer. We had fun with that.

          • My hubby is 25 years younger. And yet it works.

      I don’t know if your Doctor has discussed this with you or not, but, be prepared to look like you’ve been beat with a tire iron for at least a week, and as a personal recommendation, I’d keep visitors to the absolute minimum or only as much as needed to stave off boredom.

      Cool! Both hubby and I each did a few minor nips and tucks a few years ago. Good thing you are doing it this year, as the medical expenses deduction for income tax purposes will be eliminated beginning in 2018 if the GOP tax reform becomes law.

    Millions of men suffer in silence after sexual abuse. How can we help them better?
    – Research indicates that one in six men experienced sexual abuse at some point during their childhood. Post-Weinstein, it’s time to cast off shame and secrecy

    ‘As a forensic consultant, clinician, researcher, and survivor of sexual violence myself, I have for the past 30 years navigated the too-often secret terrain inhabited by men who have suffered sexual violence. I have listened to disclosures, I have catalogued symptoms, I have assessed emotional losses, and I have also witnessed the liberation thatcomes from casting off shame and secrecy.’

      Oh, honey. Judging? I’m judging those fashion choices.

    • TexasBoy

      I wonder how those preachers would react if a pro-target person started screaming during a church service?

      • Snarkaholic

        It would be a fun experiment to start rolling around and ‘speaking in tongues’ during one of their services.
        Make sure the messages you’re spewing are from ‘Jesus himself’ and condemn everyone in the congregation (as well as the minster) for NOT acting as Jesus commanded…while naming chapter and verse to back up each statement.

      • Moxie Miscellany

        Did nobody mention Matthew 6:5 to these whackadoos? Or, y’know, Target’s policy about people harassing their customers & staff?

    Haters Launch β€œAnywhere But Target” Xmas Campaign

    If successful, that would mean an almost trash free shopping experience this year at Target. Good deal!

  • JAKvirginia

    BTW: My local Target has Men’s, Women’s, and Family bathrooms. At least at that location they can feel “safe” for the holidays. *eyeroll*

    So, now that the alarm has been sounded, how many women and/or girls have been attacked at Target since they instituted their policy? Like, um, none, maybe?

    • alguien

      you said HOLIDAYS!!!!

      why do you hate christmas so much?????

      • JAKvirginia

        Because it’s turned into a gift-buying feeding frenzy that displays humanity at it’s worst too often. Plus, there are many people who, for whatever reason, can’t participate making them feel more lonely and unloved. After a big box store employee was trampled to death by a Black Friday crowd some years ago, I said Enuff! Half the world doesn’t celebrate it. I’m not alone.

      • Eioljg

        Was that snark or do you celebrate Evangelical Consumerism ? I’m a Christian who doesn’t Christmas shop because I think that our capitalist culture has been trying to brainwash true Christians to worship the culture more than to worship Christ.

        • Opinion Sousaphones

          Looks like snark to me.

        • alguien

          i guess it’s getting too difficult to discern snark from the real thing, these days.

        • Moxie Miscellany

          Don’t forget that Christmas trees are pagan. And, well, pretty much the entire holiday, for that matter.

    • Mark Cross

      I’d bet more women & children have been sexually assaulted in the offices of their local “Family Values” politicians and religious leaders than in any Target.

    • lymis

      If anyone ever raises this point with you, remember to point out that there has never been a claim that the trans people were assaulting anyone – the claim was that straight men would dress like women, claim to be trans, and hang out in women’s restrooms.

      Even the anti-trans people acknowledge that it’s straight men we all have to worry about.

      • The Professor

        And why can’t they do that anyway? Haters never answer that question.

        • Moxie Miscellany

          They never do, true… and if you point out that exactly ZERO attacks of those types have occurred in places where unisex bathrooms are the norm, or where trans people all use the restroom of their preferred gender, the transphobes get stuck in an infinite repetition of “well, it WILL SOMEDAY, because THE QUEERS are out to get OUR CHILDREN!”

  • Bluto

    A radical social agenda is politically supporting pedophiles, rapists, & those who commit sexual assault, treason & thief.

    I’ve never been in a Target store but the news coverage has been generally very positive recently.

    They must not be too committed to their cause, because the video is “Unlisted” on YouTube. That means that you can only see it if you already have the URL for it. So they really only want people who are already on their mailing lists to see it.

    That’s what I call chickenshit advocacy.

        In Hilo, Hawaii, they have a lot of pretty good food at fairly reasonable prices (by Hawaii standards – which are kind of insane, as the cheapest loaf of bread you can find is usually around $5).

        We actually used to do quite a bit of our grocery shopping at Target.

  • SoCalGal20

    I went to the #AnywhereButTarget tag on twitter. It’s basically dead. A few tweets a day and that’s it. This is probably giving them more attention than they deserve.

    Brick and mortar retailers are losing money because of online shopping. None of those Nazis/White Supremacists/KKK/Aryan Nations/Peudo Christians /OMM/Scamvangelicals protest will cause any dent to the profit of corporate retailers for three reasons.
    1. They are empty vessels making lots of noises with no action. I.E. They are bunch of fucking liars and hypocrites that will still shop at those stores on their boycott list.
    2 They do not have the spending powers to make retailers yield to their cockamamie.

        Don’t think so. JC Penney was, at the same time as Ellen, trying a fair pricing/no sales policy. Their customers wanted “sales,” even though they knew they weren’t actually getting many real discounts, and stayed away until the policy changed. Consumer psychology is weird.

    My mother and I went shopping at Target this morning. It seemed to be doing well. The clerk said the busiest she saw it was Thursday, since Thanksgiving is the new Black Friday evidently. I wish they’d give the clerks the day off.

    • SoCalGal20

      Yeah, I don’t like that.

    • Ninja0980

      No one should be forced to work on Thanksgiving.

    • BearEyes

      I refuse to do any in-store shopping on a holiday. The clerks do need a day off.

    • J Ascher

      I was in Waco visiting my parents over Thanksgiving. There’s a nearby Target that already had hundreds of people lined up early that evening.

  • Sporkfighter

    I don’t like shopping at Target because the checkout isn’t set up for bulk grocery sales. I may have to shop there anyway.

  • LarryChemEngr

    Virtually all brick and mortar retail stores, not just Target, have seen a decline in sales due to internet purchasing.

    “Christian” boycotts are hilarious. How’s that boycott of Disney going for you?

    • Boreal

      As well as the one against Starbucks, which is now out of business.

      • Snarkaholic

        Not to mention the NFL boycott!

    • CB

      35% of toy sales will be online this year. Target is still #2 in that sector, and their online beats Toys R Us by miles. Target is going to be just fine.

  • bkmn

    So time to buy Target stock, right?

    • safari

      Amazon is slowly nibbling them to death, so I’d pass on that.

      • Boreal

        Amazon will probably buy Target like they did with Whole Paycheck.

        • safari

          The only Amazon store I know of is designed such that the customers are actually just demonstrating the next generation of pricing and purchasing technologies to other store executives.

        • SoCalGal20

          Thankfully we have Trader Joe’s so I can completely avoid Amazon Whole Paycheck.

          • TuuxKabin

            ditto.

      • SoCalGal20

        Amazon needs to be stopped. Like, I get the convenience but come on. OTOH maybe smaller mom-and-pop stores might have a better chance in some places if some of the big box stores go out of business.

        • safari

          My mother bought me an Amazon echo for christmas. I am now part of the hive mind. I might even apply to work for them this month.

          • SoCalGal20

            I hope not to work in one of their warehouses!

          • thatotherjean

            What exactly do you do with an Amazon Echo? To me, it seems kind of like Cortana on this PC–all I want her to do is to shut up and leave me alone.

          • safari

            I’m going to use it to control lights and create some “apps” for it.

        • TuuxKabin

          Stopped shopping there years ago and any one so damned tuned out they don’t know it, and continue to send fuckin’ gift cards, we thank ’em and let them know we passed it on to someone who can use it

  • JWC

    it is a shame that such a good word as “conservative” has to be wasted on such a useless enterprise

    • RoFaWh

      They’re not conservatives, no way!

      They are retrogressives.

      • clay

        Conservatives– “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
        The GOP– “if it ain’t broke, . . . hold my beer.”

  • Bambino
  • Tom G

    A friend of mine was raped as a 10 year old boy by two adult men in the bathroom at a Christian camp. Don’t trust anyone with kids! Especially Christians.

  • Mike in Texas

    Target will be the safest place for teenage girls to shop this season.

    • prixator

      Well, really anyone, no?

      • Mike in Texas

        Right … fewer perverts and fewer gun weirdos too.

  • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

    Heh. They said ‘butt target.’ Heh heh. Heh. Heheheheh. I am Cornholio! Are you threatening me?

  • Sean

    Walmart, JC Penny, Macy’s, all treat trans people with respect just like Target does. I would say they could try Amazon . . . Oh right Amazon supports LGBTQ rights as well. Oops. HAPPY HOLIDAYS FELICIA!

    • Snarkaholic

      “Fine! In that kase, me and ShirleyBob is gonna handz out Chik-Full-Ay gift kardz insted…due thay cum in fifty-cent denumbynayshuns?”

      • Moxie Miscellany

        Funny thing is, even Chick-Fil-A now (at least marginally) supports LGBTQ people. Even funded a gay Christian film festival.

        • Priya Lynn

          I find that hard to believe. I hope your right, but it just seems very unlikely.

        • Snarkaholic

          I hadn’t heard about that.

  • MaryJOGrady

    They already had me buying about 60% of my toiletries at Target.

  • Mike

    More anti-free speech cupcake-ism by Republican nincompoops.

    • Moxie Miscellany

      But when people on the left want to boycott a conservative business (say, Hobby Lobby), the Republicans screech about how it’s violating their rights and how the left is trying to destroy their businesses by choosing to shop elsewhere. (Further proving that their idea of “free market” is “free to choose to shop where WE want you to”…)

  • bobbybear.i.am

    Out of every other Big Box store I went to yesterday the biggest crowd was at Target.

    • BJORN RAGNVALDR

      I was going to stop by Target for a couple of health & beauty products (as I am wont to do), the parking lot was packed, people coming in were poaching shopping carts from others as they loaded their cars. I chose to go on to CVS

  • David

    Thank you for reminding me that I need to go shopping at Target.

  • ClevelandJim

    2nd Vote? Never heard of’em. But I’m all for them if they keep their kind away from my Target. I go in there to pick up lunch all the time–they have an AMAZING cranberry-chicken salad sandwich on artisan cranberry/rice bread (Archer Farms), and it’s the best place to buy my 32.5 oz Folger’s Classic ($8.99 regular, often on sale for $6.99).

  • Thoth

    Anyone who would boycott Target for their bathroom policy is a Walmart shopper anyhow so I don’t see how this could possibly have an impact of any kind.

    • BJORN RAGNVALDR

      That’s what they don’t get, most of their flock are Dollar General shoppers. Nothing wrong with that, but they are off base thinking their base goes to Target in the first place.

  • Todd Allis

    Stepping up their boycott? Wait, was that still going on?

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      In their heads it is, in reality? not so much.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada
  • KnownDonorDad

    Does this fold into the annual Starbucks boycott?

    • BJORN RAGNVALDR

      Target stores have Starbucks coffee shops in them, two for one.

      • boobert

        My main Target doesn’t have a Starbucks, but there is one in the same shopping center. The next one down the road has Starbucks.

  • KnownDonorDad

    Here’s a great place to find deals at Target:

  • peacfulseas inWA

    I was there yesterday to pick up prescriptions for 3 people $110.00 . The place was slammed. We’re just a few minutes south of the border and BC keeps our local economy buzzing along but also tends to inflate prices on certain items such as gasoline..

    • kareemachan

      Canadians are scary at Costco near the border, so I can imagine what they are like at Target.

      • peacfulseas inWA

        Oh yeah, I hit Costco as close to opening to avoid the hordes. I purchase very little from Costco.

  • Terry

    The main reasons retailers are pinched is because of online sales, not because of idiotic campaigns like this one.

    I wonder if 2ndvote will launch a campaign against Roy Moore

  • LesbianTippingHabits


    I believe that a Target employee, without authorization from senior management, sent something out on social media re transgender bathroom access.

    Blindsided, senior management had to do crash construction of single-occupancy gender-neutral dressing room facilities at Target stores.

    https://corporate.target.com/article/2016/04/target-stands-inclusivity

    Note the “earlier this week.”

    So, if you care about diversity and inclusivity, and can shop at Target, please take the time to do so. Thank you.

  • lymis

    There was a time when “anywhere butt target” had an entirely different meaning…

  • lymis

    People don’t understand the right wing Christian approach to boycotts.

    When the boycott is called, they assume that everyone ELSE will boycott, they give it lip service, and then they are free to sneak in and do their shopping without being seen by anyone else who’s also boycotting.

    This has been true in liquor stores since, forever. The same was true at Disney resorts – they all claimed they were boycotting, but still went.

    • Amanda B. Rekendwith

      This has been true in liquor stores since, forever.
      It’s one of the 3 great universal truths…
      Jews don’t recognize Jesus as the Son of God
      Protestants don’t recognize the Pope as the Head of the Christian Church
      And Baptists don’t recognize each other in the liquor store.

      The Bible teaches so many different and contradictory things that everybody uses it as a cafeteria. Folks just wander through it picking the items that they like and ignoring the things that they don’t like.

      • Moxie Miscellany

        Yea, that’s the problem. Sometimes you get the ones who choose to follow all the good “love thy neighbour” bits, like the Quakers; and then, sometimes, you get the WBC.

  • pj

    my target has the cutest boys working there. at least one of them always asks me if there is anything i need. and that little voice in my head says yes. i need you.

  • Justandra

    Sale prices override hatred everytime, lol.

  • kaydenpat

    Republicans are literally about to vote for a child molester in Alabama. They need to sit down and shut up.

    • Moxie Miscellany

      To be fair, the vast majority of people in the US currently wanting to abolish age-of-consent and rape laws are Republican. So it’s not that surprising.

  • kbhmsw

    Happy
    and proud to say I just spent over $300 at my local Target buying toys
    for a toy drive (Toy Box 22) that goes to the children infected or
    affected by HIV/AIDS for APLA Health. Fuck you, “Christians” — how much are YOU donating to needy children this year??

  • cleos_mom

    Target has escalators?

    • Bert_Bauer

      There’s a store just south of San Francisco that has two floors.

      • cleos_mom

        You learn something every day !

  • Robert Adams

    Is Roy Moore hanging out in Target restrooms?

  • Betty

    Google is paying 97$ per hour,with weekly payouts.You can also avail this.
    On tuesday I got a great new Land Rover Range Rover from having earned $11752 this last four weeks..with-out any doubt it’s the most-comfortable job I have ever done .. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it

    All the other retailers have the same policy you fools

  • david fairfield

    You know, when Target’s idiot CEO Steinhafel decided to spend shareholders money on Prop 8 and we as a community came together to boycott Target it made a difference. Their sales were adversely affected and shareholders were furious and he was held accountable for his stupidity and ousted as chairman/CEO. Good riddance. Every other month these conservative groups call for a boycott on Target for one morally superior reason or another, you’d think by now they’d realize their ridiculous pettiness would be better spent being the good people they claim they are. As always…GO FUCK YOURSELVES!

  • The Professor

    Sales at brick and mortar stores are dying because of amazon and the internet, these backwards Christofacist closet case groups have nothing to do with it.

  • anne marie in philly

    so your little boycott isn’t working so well, is it, xstains? FUCK YOU!

  • Terry Brennan

    I will shop more a Target now.

  • Can’t boycott where you don’t buy from anyway.

    • Macbill

      Walmart is to Target as
      Zales is to Tiffanys

  • Gianni

    Seeing that so many businesses have such offensive reputations for the Christianista to tolerate, why not just call for a total boycott of everyplace and don’t do any fucking shopping at all. Starve yourselves for Jesus, go to heaven, and spend eternity in heavenly bliss while the rest of us enjoy shopping!

  • Queequeg

    Since thw whack jobs have started their boycott, I have been doing more shopping at Target.

  • Ann Kah

    Ooh, makes me sorry I don’t do Christmas shopping any more.

  • kareemachan

    Dear idiots, you just made sure I’ll do some shopping at Target.
