Single Issue

We have this discussion about NRA being single issue. That seems to get people upset, given that some folks think the R stands for Republican. I found another single-issue bit interesting. Seems a gay rights group is upset that Target gave $150K to a politician who opposes gay marriage. Now, does that mean Target is anti-gay? No. Probably means that Target thinks this guy is better for their business. But the gay rights folks say:

Send the company a message right now, urging them to explain why their money is being used to fund a politics that not only serves to prevent LGBT equality, but breeds homophobia, transphobia and hatred.

But that’s likely not Target’s goal.

    Transphobia? Target is against people who need to use means of transportation? I guess that’s why I’ve never really seen automotive products sold there unlike WalMart.

    I may be mistaken, but actually, I think that is Target’s goal. I had read somewhere that they also donated money to groups who only existed to advocate on CA’s Prop 8.

    The object is to get people through the front door. About half of Target’s potential customer base is glad to see the former Dayton Hudson back someone to the right of Josef Stalin. But 3% are highly upset about it, and Target is trying to play both ends against the middle. Which is a good way to get burned.

    The problem is that “activists” do nothing but think about whatever they’re, um, activating for, not realizing that there really are other things people consider in elections. I don’t see how someone can think of nothing but the gays all the time. And that’s for people on both sides of the issue.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
