Super Woke Target Partners on Its New Gay Pride Line With Designer Who Insists 'Satan Loves You'
So let’s check them off. By “them,” I mean just the latest corporations to put their “woke” beliefs ahead of customer loyalty, profits, and shareholders: Disney, Nike, Bud Light, BlackRock, Ford, and Miller Lite. The complete list is long — and it just got longer with the addition of the super-woke Target Corporation.
Target has partnered with UK-based Satanist designer Abprallen on its new “Pride” collection, which features a “Cure Transphobia” sweatshirt, which bears the message “Cure transphobia, not trans people,” and other related items. Did I mention that Abprallen insists “Satan loves you,” “Satan respects pronouns,” and other uplifting [sarc] trash for your shopping pleasure?
As reported by Breitbart, Abprallen mixes its affinity for satanism with its pro-LGBT activism, boasting on its Instagram page: “Satan loves you and respects who you are; you’re important and valuable in this world and you deserve to treat yourself with love and respect.”
LGBT+ people are so often referred to as being a product of Satan or going against God’s will, so fine. We’ll hang with Satan instead. So, naturally, Satan respects pronouns. He loves all LGBT+ people.
Uh-huh. “So naturally,” twisted as hell illogical “logic.” And I’m referring to Target, as well.
Look, other than the “Satan loves you and respects you” part, I don’t disagree that rational-thinking adults have the right to treat themselves and their bodies however the hell they want to. But, no one on the planet gets to decide who else loves and respects them or their chosen lifestyles. Even worse, shoving the super-minority views of the LGBTQ community in the face of a majority of Americans who disagree with all or part of their shticks — and worst of all, children — is obscene in my not-so-humble opinion.
Here’s more, via Breitbart:
Abprallen’s owner, a self-identified “gay, trans man” known as “Erik,” said that the “Satan respects pronouns” pin, which features an image of the demon Baphomet, is one of “my favourite [sic] and most popular designs, and the one that gave Abprallen its proper footing and direction.”
“Coming up with this phrase really helped make Abprallen what it is today,” Erik wrote.“Coming up with this phrase really helped make Abprallen what it is today,” Erik wrote.
Think about that — and Target — parents, before you allow your kids to drag any Abprallen crap home.
“Erik” then goes from promoting satanism to claiming he doesn’t believe in it:
Satanists don’t actually believe in Satan, he is merely used as a symbol of passion, pride, and liberty. So for me, Satan is hope, compassion, equality, and love.
Sick, lying for money, or both?
As for Target, the mega-chain crows on its website:
At Target, our team rallies around a single purpose: to help all families discover the joy of everyday life. That purpose and our inclusion of “all” directly connects to our inclusivity value as a company. We leverage our purpose to champion a more inclusive society that provides a fulfilling place to work and enhances our relationship with our guests, communities and suppliers.
Target has had an established diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) strategy for many years with an unwavering focus and long-standing commitment to data-driven growth in DE&I among our team members and business. We strongly believe that what gets measured gets managed, which is why we’ve set and regularly monitor progress against our enterprise DE&I goals for the past six years.
Well, crap. I’ve actually enjoyed shopping at Target, for years — in contrast to Walmart. Hell, I’d wear shorts and crawl across broken glass, or walk barefoot on burning embers rather than set foot in that three-ring circus clown show.
Then again, I suppose I’m a hypocrite, in this respect — bigly. (See: Amazon Prime)
Can some on please stop the world? I want to get the hell off.
