    FOX NEWS INVESTIGATES – Since the George Floyd protests and riots of 2020, Target Corporation said it ramped up its diversity, equity and inclusion work. This agenda extended far beyond enhancing representation and support of historically marginalized groups externally and in its stores, and dipped into funding organizations with far-left and blatantly political agendas. Target's "accelerated" its DEI program in response to Black Lives Matter activism under the leadership of its diversity chief – Kiera Fernandez. The chief has demanded that "White women" get to work to combat the proclaimed systemic racism in America. Fox News Digital found that Target,...

    Go woke, go broke. That phrase couldn't ring any more accurate than it does now. Conservatives on the forefront of the battle in boycotting companies that push the Left's pride propaganda are winning as woke companies see a massive downfall in sales. Since Target rolled out its "all-inclusive" line of "tuck-friendly" swimwear and t-shirts that promote gender identity targeting children, the company's stock price dropped 14 percent— falling for the ninth day in a row. When consumers discovered that Target was also selling items with satanic designs, JPMorgan analysts downgraded the company's stock and lowered their 12-month price target. Additionally,...

    While many see Pride Month as a celebration for members of the LGBTQ+ community, some conservatives have a different take on the month, calling for boycotts of several companies. Twitter user RAMZPAUL also recently posted a photo calling for supporters to boycott all of Pride Month and avoid stores that celebrate the season and instead support businesses that reject Pride Month.Bud Light In April, Bud Light and Anheuser-Busch faced a wave of backlash and calls to boycott the company after the beer brand sent a one-off commemorative can to transgender influencer and activist, Dylan Mulvaney, who then shared it on...

    Target projects over $1 billion in losses due in large part to shoplifting. And that is its own fault. Target CEO Brian Cornell responded to the BLM race riots with a memo claiming that, “the murder of George Floyd has unleashed the pent-up pain of years, as have the killings of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.” Much of that pain was directed at robbing Target. After a massive wave of arson and looting, targeted its own chain stores, Target doubled down on its Racial Equity Action and Change strategy. The Target Foundation was one of the signatories of the Philanthropic...

    At least five Targets in multiple states received bomb threats Friday over company executives pulling the Pride collection section because of mounting boycotts, leading to multiple stores being evacuated as police and the FBI searched for explosive devices.

    Target has lost $10 billion in market valuation over the last 10 days as the popular retailer continues to face backlash over its Pride-themed clothing line for children. A week ago Wednesday, Target enjoyed its stock value at $160.96 a share, but following the calls to boycott the Minneapolis-based retailer over its “PRIDE” collection, the value plummeted and closed Friday at $138.93 a share.

    A pro-Trump rap group’s single, titled “Boycott Target,” has exploded online, racking up nearly three million views and climbing to number #6 on the iTunes Charts. Forgiato Blow, Jimmy Levy, Nick Nittoli, and Stoney Dudebro created the hit song, boasting lyrics about retail giant Target “targeting” your children with Satanic and sexualized goods. “There’s a cleanup on every aisle/Target is targetin’ your kids,” the song’s lyrics open. “This agenda’s gotta stop, they know we gonna win.” “Target, Target, yeah they targetin’/Target, Target, yeah they target kids,” the song goes, continuing on to lyrics about the LGBT agenda going “too far.”...

    Despite the backlash over the Bud Light partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, companies continue to push the envelope for Pride Month, now just days away from "officially" beginning. Target held an emergency meeting recently over the backlash over some of its pride merchandise that included "tuck friendly" swimsuits, controversial items geared toward kids, and a product line designed by a Satanist. The company has since ordered certain southern stores to scale back their pride displays and move them, as well as pulling all items from the Devil-worshipper. But now the Target and Bud Light controversies are looking like small...

    Target has faced enormous criticism for its recent efforts to cater to the transgender community in recent weeks after the national retailer introduced a “Pride collection” across its stores, featuring merchandise, clothing, and books promoting transgender-friendly messages and leftist gender ideology. What made this particularly troubling was that the products were not just for adults but also for young children and babies. Target also ensured that these products were prominently displayed at the front of its stores, forcing everyone who entered to be exposed to its rainbow-colored propaganda. In response to the mounting backlash, Target held an emergency meeting and...

    A group of parents in North Hollywood in Los Angeles, California, is planning to keep their children home from school on June 2 because of a planned school assembly to observe LGBTQ+ Pride month. Parents at Saticoy Elementary School are outraged at the event, which appears to be part of a broader observance within the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) of June as Pride month. A post on the parents’ Instagram page says: Keep your kids home on June 2nd! We are parents of elementary school children, who have the right to introduce sexually explicit topics at our discretion....

    I truly love baseball. But more than baseball, I love God. Given the decision between being a fan of any sports team and supporting my religious beliefs, I know that God is my real captain and I will always choose my faith. And I believe that when push comes to shove, most people feel the same. I also recognize that it is my religious obligation to support other people of faith in their journey. Which is why I am so sad that I will not be attending baseball games thanks to the irresponsible management of the Los Angeles Dodgers and...

If that wasn't enough for them, and the old corporate memory is gone, there are numerous cases of "go woke, go broke" among other corporations that tried to foist woke merchandise on the public, culminating in the Bud Light fiasco, which could have reminded them. Or, they could have checked out what was left on the Target clearance shelves of...

    Warning: If you work for any major woke corporation, you’d better sit down for this. What all the corporations fear is the Bud Light boycott works. Suppose rational people decide they don’t want someone mocking women as the spokesperson of the product they use. Then, all dozen or so companies that already have deals with Mulvaney are at risk. And not just them, any company that foists woke garbage on its customers suddenly might face the music or simply face customers who go to less-woke competitors. That’s why Bud Light doesn’t want anyone to remember. It can’t risk it.

    NASHVILLE – Athletes must refuse to compete against transgender girls to ensure sports go back to being fair and reserved for biological females, former NCAA swimmer Riley Gaines told Fox News. "We have to have girls who, when the whistle blows, they don't run, they don't swim. They stand up on the block and they don't go," said Gaines, who swam for the University of Kentucky. "It's unfortunate, of course, to ask women to make that sacrifice because these are their sports, they should be entitled to playing," she added. "They shouldn't have to give up anything to get changes."...

(snip) “American presidential elections usually amount to a series of overcorrections: Clinton begat Bush, who produced Obama, whose lax border policies fueled the rise of Trump. In the case of Trump, though, the GOP shares the blame, and not just because his fellow Republicans misdirected their ad buys or waited so long to criticize him. Trump is in part a reaction to the intellectual corruption of...

    Anheuser-Busch has employed a lobbying firm with GOP roots in Congress following its controversial partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney. American Accountability Foundation has written a letter to Congressional staffers, per Fox Business, alleging Origin Advocacy has sent its founder and a partner to Capitol Hill on the brewer's behalf. Disclosures confirm that Origin Advocacy added Anheuser-Busch as a client this year. Founder Sean McClean and Origin partner Emily Lynch, with their former experiences as Republican staffers, have already begun "making the rounds," according to AAF. McClean is a former legislative director for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), while Lynch was...

    As outrage from some conservatives blew up over Bud Light's sponsorship deal with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney, former President Donald Trump was notably silent as calls for a boycott of the company grew. According to The Independent, Trump's silence on the matter was possibly due to the fact that he holds a significant financial interest in Anheuser-Busch InBev, the company that produces Bud Light. In his most recent financial disclosure, Trump is shown to own between $1 million and $5 million in Anheuser-Busch InBev stock under an account listed as “DJT Trust — Investment Account #2."

    Most conservatives were shocked and surprised when Fox News took the Tucker Carlson program off the air last week. It was watched by 3.2 million mostly affluent viewers each night. It was the seventh most popular program on cable TV. It attracted nearly twice as many viewers as MSNBC and CNN combined. MSNBC had an audience of roughly 1.14 million viewers. CNN only had roughly 473,000. However, Tucker Carlson’s program had been on life support since December 18, 2018. That is when “progressive” Democrats cancelled most of its sponsors. On December 13, 2018, Tucker Carlson did a segment on the...
