(Article by Susan Duclos republished from AllNewsPipeline.com)
Conservatives and even some independents, find it off-putting to see "tuck-friendly" or "chest-binding" imagery so prominently displayed in stores they bring their children to, so they spoke up, refused to shop there.
After the grassroots boycott of Bud Light after they celebrated "women" by creating a can with the face of a transgender woman, meaning a male pretending to be a woman, costing Bud Light billions, Target did what any smart business would do to protect themselves and their bottom line. They moved the items that offended the majority of their costumers, or in some cases completed pulled the items.
Businesses are created to earn money. Period. Full stop. Whether it is for the owners, shareholders and/or investors, that goal never changes. Make money or go out of business.
So, some members of the LGBT community decided to punish Target by calling in bomb threats.
Literal domestic terrorism, by definition: (Emphasis mine)
18 U.S. Code § 2331 - Definitions - Domestic Terrorism:
(5) the term “domestic terrorism” means activities that— (A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended— (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States;
Bomb threats are illegal or as stated above a "violation of the criminal laws of the United States," and they were meant to "intimidate or coerce" Target into changing their stance.
Interestingly enough, we haven't seen one article from the liberal MSM that calls these bombs threats "domestic terrorism," nor has the Biden regime acknowledged them as terrorism, yet as we discussed in a previous article, the GOP, conservatives and Christians are all being targeted by the Biden regime as such, or as "far-right radicalization" groups as part of their ""Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention Program."
REPORTAGE OF THE BOMB THREATS
Cleveland 19 News received a bomb threat Friday afternoon against five Target stores in the area.
The threat, received at 12:26 p.m. via email, centered around Target’s LGBTQ+ merchandise.
Immediately jumping to action, our staff made reports with each local police department as well as the Cleveland Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigations.
Nowhere in the Cleveland 19 News piece does it mention terrorism, and despite publishing the email, they also do not directly call out the LGBT community, or even the more militant portion of the transgender community, for terrorism.
Ohio wasn't alone as we see multiple Utah Targets also received bomb threats.
Via 2KUTV: "Layton Target evacuated after bomb threats reported at multiple Utah stores."
Sgt. John Ottesen with Layton Police said bomb threats were made to Target stores in Layton, Salt Lake, Taylorsville and Provo.
Officers began the investigation after two local new stations received emails alerting them about the threats.
They said Target's Pride merchandise displays were referenced in the emails.
The threat was three sentences long and came from a “bogus email address," according to Sgt. Ottesen.
Once again, domestic terrorism wasn't even mentioned.
Imagine if conservatives had issued bomb threats over the transgender merchandize instead of just talking their business elsewhere.
Every media outlet out there would be screaming about those domestic terrorists!
In fact MSNB had a guest on that insists that boycotting Target is "economic terrorism, literally terrorism."
When Target caves into this, then it says that the moment you threaten the employees of even a very large corporation you get to control its policies. This is economic terrorism — literally terrorism — creating fear among the workers and forcing the corporations to sell the things you want and not sell the things you don't.
Bomb threats are not terrorism, but deciding to take your business elsewhere, is.
We are living in Bizarro World.
