The conservative activist group One Million Moms recently started a petition against Target after the company rolled out a lineup of LGBT-inspired Christmas products. The organization claims such merchandise is inappropriate considering the Christian origin of the holiday.
One Million Moms emphasized that Christmas is a Christian holiday that should not be exploited by a progressive ideology that divides consumers. For a giant retail store such as Target, the Christmas shopping holiday should always be a busy, profitable season. However, as One Million Moms implies, Target could face financial setbacks as it continues to spark controversy over woke initiatives.
“Target has made a deliberate decision to display controversial products instead of wholesome ones at Christmas — a Christian holiday. This is a terrible plan on Target’s part, especially at this time of year, the season that should be the most profitable time of year for companies,” the conservative organization claims.
The American Tribune recently reported on the woke, LGBT-themed merchandise Target unveiled to the anger of conservative shoppers. The retail giant began selling products such as a pride-themed nutcracker and a pride Santa Claus.
However, controversial woke product offerings are nothing new for Target. Earlier this year, the company was also embroiled in controversy over a pride-themed lineup of clothing accused of targeting children and a “tuck-friendly” female swimsuit. Reportedly, Target had also partnered with Abprallen, a satanic apparel company.
“Let Target know that as a conservative parent and consumer, you are disgusted by their recent merchandising choices. The corporation’s leaders have failed to get the message that when you go woke, you go broke,” 1MM continued.
“Please sign our petition urging Target to immediately stop choosing progressive merchandise and cancel this pro-LGBTQ selection of offensive Christmas products. Also, let Target know that continuing to push LGBTQ products and other offensive merchandise in the future will force your family to make the decision to no longer purchase any items from Target unless they remain neutral in the culture war,” the petition read, calling conservatives to take action against Target. As of when this article was written, the petition has over 15,000 signatures.
One Million Moms has also made headlines recently for denouncing the woke gender ideology allegedly propagated by the Thanksgiving Macy’s Parade. This year, the iconic Thanksgiving event featured what the organization deemed a “non-binary and transgender extravaganza.” The parade was set to include performances with non-binary and transgender individuals.
“The non-binary and transgender extravaganza on display this Thanksgiving will be brought to you by Macy’s during their annually sponsored Thanksgiving Day Parade. Unless they are forewarned about it, this year’s holiday parade will potentially expose tens of millions of viewers at home to the liberal LGBTQ agenda,” the petition stated.
“Shame on Macy’s for promoting and sponsoring this type of entertainment. We still cannot trust Macy’s Dept. Store. It is clear that Macy’s does not have our children’s best interests in mind. Macy’s needs to know that trust must be earned, and once trust is lost, it is difficult to get back,” One Million Moms said. The Thanksgiving Macy’s Day Parade petition received over 40,000 signatures.
