Target is facing growing backlash over video footage showing one of their stores littered with LGBT-themed items for children.
Published on Wednesday by the “Gays Against Groomers” Twitter account, the footage shows everything from LGBT-themed t-shirts to LGBT-themed athletic apparel, backpacks, light bulbs, plushies, sandals, and more at one Target store.
This is what you will find in the kid’s section of @Target. We urge you to take your business elsewhere. They are indoctrinating and grooming them with LGBTQ ideology. It is highly inappropriate and disturbing.
We hope there are enough parents out there that understand how… pic.twitter.com/8g1UC41zAY

The items are reportedly part of Target’s “Pride” collection.
“Target’s Pride collection features designs from LGBTQ+ creators and touts the retailer’s ongoing work with the LGBTQ+ student advocacy organization GLSEN,” according to LGBTQ Nation, an LGBT-themed news site.
“Some of the children’s items from this year’s Pride collection include socks, baby onesies, and t-shirts featuring Pride flags, rainbows, or phrases like ‘I believe in you,’ ‘It takes all kinds,’ and ‘I am proud of you always,'” the site notes.
In their tweet, “Gays Against Groomers” urged parents nationwide to reject this indoctrination and fight back like they did with Bud Light.
“We hope there are enough parents out there that understand how wrong this is and show them that this garbage will not sell. The only thing these people understand is money. Target deserves the Bud Light treatment. We will work to put the pressure on them,” the tweet reads.
The tweet has been inundated with outraged replies expressing anger over Target’s clear-cut attempt to indoctrinate children with LGBT orthodoxy.
I haven’t shopped at Target, Kohl’s, bed bath and beyond since 2020. No longer drinking AB products, only Coors light for me. People’s purchasing power matters!

@Target will be the new Bud Light! We don’t play. #BoycottTarget for grooming promotion! For promoting the terrorist group that murdered Christian’s in Nashville! NOT OK @Target it’s disgusting!

Boycott Target! Enough is enough! We can’t go to a freaking store anymore with kids and see this indoctrination shoved down through our kids’ minds. The store should be a place to enjoy shopping without being reminded of a sick political agenda.

#BoycottTarget and every Company, NGO, Media Outlet or Company that forces this insane agendas against children on the people.
This is child abuse in its new, colorful insane form. Manipulation.

This isn’t the first time Target has purposefully involved itself with the LGBT community for political purposes.
Back in 2016, the company enacted a still-active “inclusive bathroom policy” for so-called transgender people. The policy essentially allowed anyone to use whichever restroom they preferred, regardless of their real gender.
“Target Corp said on Tuesday that transgender employees and customers could use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity, becoming the first big retailer to weigh in on an issue at the center of a heated national debate,” Reuters reported at the time.
“The move came after North Carolina last month became the first U.S. state to require transgender people to use restrooms and changing rooms in schools and other public facilities that match their sex at birth rather than their gender identity. Lawmakers in some other states have also floated similar laws,” according to Reuters.
Target’s policy spurred massive backlash, prompting the company to eventually bend the knee by introducing a third, single-toilet, lockable restroom at all of its stores that anyone who felt uncomfortable could use.
Returning to the original tweet by “Gays Against Groomers,” some people responded to it by showing photos from their own local Target stores.
Everyday after work, I cut through the local Target to expedite my path to trolly. Usually with no intention to stop, or look around.
But today, that was not the case!
An exuberant amount of Pride Propaganda blasted me at the entrance!

Though even more startling, was that the children’s section seemed to have been completely saturated with this ideology of rainbow nonsense.
To suggest an agenda is NOT being pushed, would be to be living in delusion.

This is what I found in my Target this very morning. And there was a lot more than just this. pic.twitter.com/gQamaOzKq1

Clearly, LGBT-themed items are being rolled out at every Target store across the nation. What remains to be seen is whether conservatives will be able to force the giant retailer to bend the knee once more …
