When Target came out with “Pride” apparel marketed toward kids and other apparel designed by an apparent Satanist, the online right, already agitated over the Bud Light issue, was furious. A Target boycott began and a group of Christian, pro-Trump rappers came out with the song “Boycott Target,” which quickly topped the chart, blowing past even Taylor Swift.
One of those rappers, Jimmy Levy, recently discussed the song with Fox News Digital and explained what it is that the song shows and why it’s so important.
Beginning, he noted that though the mainstream leaders of certain industries, particularly the music industry, want people to believe that people think a certain way and that Christian patriots are a minority, that’s not really true. Further, he argued, the success of the song shows that there are a huge number of people out there who are Christians and love traditional America.
In his words: “That shows that we’re the majority no matter what, the mainstream and Hollywood—and the industry wants to promote whatever agenda they want to promote and try to make us look like we’re the minority— people of God, patriots, Americans. It’s just not the truth. And no matter what, God prevails.”
He added that he was inspired to work with Forgiato Blow, the main singer in the song, after it came out that a Satanist designed some of Target’s apparel, saying that when he found out Target was “collaborating with Satanists to make children’s clothing,” that was something that “really hurt me.”
He then claimed that the song was censored, with music distributors hiding it on search for a few days where people looking for it had trouble finding it. In his words: “It took like a couple of days for people to be able to actually search it on iTunes. The only way they were able to find it was on the charts. They were not allowing it to be searched.”
Continuing on that point, Levy added that it is odd that so many companies are taking the side of Satan instead of Christ, saying, “And it’s like, ‘why is a song that’s speaking out against people that are basically grooming our children, getting taken down?’ It’s just very weird. Why are we protecting that? But we allow all these other horrible things online to just stay on, you know?”
Levy then said that though his music is labeled homophobic, that’s untrue. He loves all people, as Christ commands, but feels called to take a strong stand for Christianity and the truth. As he said: “If you know me, I love everybody. I’ve never treated anybody different. I have friends that have all different types of views and I give them the biggest hugs like they’re my close friends. We never let our disagreements affect us. However, I don’t ignore the truth. And love also means the truth. We are not scared of anybody. We love everybody. They just want to put a label in order to defame the song, defame our character…it’s wrong.“
