The Target Dance

I recently watched a video of a group of individuals who broke out in song and dance in the middle of a Target store to protest the parent company's decision to donate funds to a conservative candidate.

I'm sure those talented protesters fancied themselves to be enlightened freedom fighters as they shimmied their message that corporations aren't people, and therefore have no right to interfere with "democracy", but when I could speak again, I laughed. Hard.

Do you think these same people would storm into, and disrupt the business of a corporation that donated funds to a liberal candidate pushing their agenda? No way!

It was more than hypocrisy. It was a splendid display of intolerance. Those people are nothing more than bullies spouting a "my way or the highway" attitude that smacks in the face of the freedom they cried out for.

Freedom, people. Think about it. Though it's quickly disappearing, this is still America, and Target still has the right to donate funds to the candidate of their choosing.

You do support the right to choose, don't you?

If you don't like it, fine, don't shop there. But respect their rights, and the rights of other patrons.

Time to look in the mirror, folks.
