BOOM: Target CEO Admits HUGE MISTAKE Against Conservatives
Brian Cornell now regrets his company’s policy announcement that encouraged men to use women’s restrooms and dressing rooms.
A new Wall Street Journal article revealed that Target’s CEO knows he made a mistake.
As Cornell admitted in an email to staff:
“Target didn’t adequately assess the risk, and the ensuing backlash [the American Family Association boycott] was self-inflicted.”
In other words, Conservatives win again.
When the Left targeted Hobby Lobby, Conservative made sure our dollars were spent at Hobby Lobby. The Left then targeted Chick-fil-A, and the cars lined up in huge numbers at the Christian-based fast food restaurant.
For Target, things didn’t work out so well.
The Target policy was not about transgender bathrooms, but instead a slap in the face of Conservatives. Target believed the hype of Leftism and their attempts to social-engineer the most loving, caring, humanitarian country the world has ever known.
Target wanted their transgender bathroom policy to shout loudly that they believe in Leftism. Moreover, they didn’t want the Conservative dollar.
We wrote recently of Starbucks CEO Howard Schulz feeling the pain, as he succumbed to Leftism. It didn’t work out too well for him either.
Target Wanted the Policy Kept Quiet
Although the CEO wanted the policy to remain hush-hush, the public statement about the policy remains on Target’s website today.
Target headquarters circulated an internal memo to store managers on April 15, 2016, but didn’t copy the CEO. Target’s chief risk officer, Jackie Rice, and its chief external-engagement officer, Laysha Ward approved the post.
North Carolina shopper, Mary McCandless told the WSJ,
“Target picked a side and pretty much said to the rest of us that we don’t matter.”
The 56-year-old financial analyst shifted most shopping online. “At least I don’t have to worry about using the bathroom on Amazon.com.”
Leftist loons who run the company thought the backlash would die down.
But it didn’t, and foot traffic inside Target stores declined significantly after the American Family Association launched a major boycott against the retailer.
So far, the AFA boycott forced Target’s stock value to plummet 35 percent. Because of the stock drop, Target was forced to squash plans for major expansion projects.
“Target’s decision is unacceptable for families, and their dangerous and misguided policy continues to put women and children in harm’s way.”
The AFA petition demands that Target return to “a common sense bathroom and dressing room policy that links use of these rooms to a person’s biological sex”. Their current goal is 1.5 million signatures.
Something tells me the AFA won’t need to do much more, as Conservatives have their backs.
