    im gay n i love target!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    I'm gay and I think this is going way overboard. If you don't like the donation Target made, then don't shop there. It's that simple. To go in and cause a disruption like this just gives the far right and Fake News reasons to make us look bad.

    Keep up the great works! Spread the message of truth! SHAME ON TARGET!



  6. 6

    Not everybody bases who they follow politically on one subject. I love Target and I think Target can support whoever the heck they want to. They're not being "anti-gay" because of this. In the words of you, Perez, "STOOPID."



  7. 7

    Perez, YOU are the bigot. The reason why Target donated to MN Forward is because they are business-friendly. But of course that would go over your pea-sized brain. Not everything revolves around gay rights.

    it just makes them look obnoxious! i got annoyed by this video and IM GAY!



  9. 9

    What ever happened to freedom of choice? And why go after those poor employees who are doing nothing more than trying to make a living — probably at very little pay. This video didn't impress me at all — and I'm a liberal Democrat.



  10. 10

    It's America, Target's CEO or whoever did the donation is entitled to their political opinions. Just like we are. I personally love Target and will continue to shop their despite our different opinions on this matter.



  11. 11

    Oh, pleeeze. I am gay and I won't stop shopping at Target (which is, incidentally, good quality for a decent price) just because of Perez's non-stop "let's gay up the world" crusade.



  12. 12

    Why aren't they going to headquarters also? Like the majority of target shoppers actually give fuck or that this is enough of a reason for them to disregard target's huge sales & low prices. :) But, that supervisor chick was hot! Gotta give it up for the hot chick in power (of that particular target store.)



  13. 13

    As simple as going to their website and sending them an email. That's all it took to tell them that I will spend my GAY dollars elsewhere (as well as all of my family and friends)!!!



  14. 14

    Oh my god let these people shop and work in peace. If you must feel the need to solicit go to the freaking source. Stop targeting innocent people. you're just spreading the hate.



  15. 15

    Mario, enough with this gay shit. Why don't you and these stupid activists harp on Barry Obama? If you gay activists had any fucking sense, you would be trying to get Barry on your side or at least put Barry in the hot seat so that it becomes a national debate. Stunts like this shit at one Target location ain't gonna do jack shit for your cause.



  16. 16

    oh god another prissy bitch with control issues!!
    i hate how she kept saying "you need to leave my building"
    just b/c you have a part in making sure things go smoothly while clocked in that doesn't mean you own the place bitch!



  17. 17

    Oh wow they're so cool fighting "corporate greed" and saying the word "shit" over and over in a Target. An unfortunate lesson for them that they need to learn is that everyone has the right to support the candidate of their choice. In America, those rights extend to a corporation. But I suppose if Target was unequally funding the Democratic nominee, you wouldn't have a problem.



  18. 18

    I think it is hilarious! I will still shop at Target but agree, Corporations need to stay out of our democracy!



  19. 19

    Re: zuzu49p – AMEN. Individual branches of a corporation as gargantuan as Target have absolutely no effect over the company as a whole, and this was just a dick move, to put it frankly. These employees are not the heads of the company who donated the money, and they almost certainly do not reflect their views. I'm probably one of the most leftist Democrats you'll ever meet, and I think this was completely idiotic. If you're going to protest something, do it on your own, and if you're going to try to start a movement about it, don't do it in a way that will have absolutely no impact.



  20. 20

    How is cussing at a family store going to help them win shoppers over? Dumb…



  21. 21

    I do not support the decision for any corporation to place money in the hands of any politician regardless of said politicians political views. There is no place for that period. That being said what was done above was NOT founded. You want to protest go outside of Targets corporate headquarters. The men and woman who work and shop at Target should not be subjected to this kind of nonsense to feel threatened and have their privacy violated by posting this on the web. I always love how people up in arms about one issue or another always find ways to make themselves look just as bad by pulling stunts like this. Absolutely ridiculous!



  22. 22

    Why Target the employees trying to earn a living?
    What a bunch of jerks. I will so shop Target now.
    Schools supplies tomorrow :)
    Their beef is legit, but their tactics appalling.



  23. 23

    I will continue to shop at target. Not everybody can donate to queer youth. There are other issues in the world. Not that I'm not empathetic towards them. We can't all support all causes. Maybe you should have used your time and money to donate instead of making this video. It's a double standard.



  24. 24

    That was ridiculous. Target is free to donate wherever they choose. I will still continue shopping at Target.



  25. 25

    Lame.

    They're making a scene, disturbing the public, and saying "SHIT" on a bullhorn?

    These people make hourly wage and had nothing to do with what Target as a corporation did to support this candidate. Leave these people alone. They're just trying to pay the bills like everyone else.

    Plus, this is a really weak attempt at making a "statement". Just go away and write letters to the people that matter. Just because they gave the candidate money doesn't mean he'll win the election, you turds. Why don't you research some of the things Wal-Mart does as a corporation.

    P.S.
    I LOVE Target!



  26. 26

    You who are appalled by these people NOT going after the GULTY parties, but the mere employees just trying to earn a wage, SHOP TARGET.
    Then, write corp heads,write your congress man about their supporting bigotry or whatever.
    SHOP TARGET



  27. 27

    It is going too far to walk into a store with a video camera, but a peaceful, LOUD, non-violent protest outside the store is A-OK with the Fletchers. BTW, call the number at the end of the video and it only rings busy. We've tried for days to get ahold of Mr. Homophobia supporter.



  28. 28

    this is so stupid?



  29. 29

    YAY! I love these revenge videos! It's time people RISE UP against corporate America! FUCK 'EM!!!!



  30. 30

    I work for target…Number one, going to the stores where we had ZERO control over what happened at corporate offices in Minnesota is disrespectful to the team of Target, if you want to get your message across, please call corporate offices and quit making asses of yourselves at stores where people are trying to work and get a paycheck for them and their family. Target STORES had no say in this and you all dont even understand the whole picture…



  31. 31

    Walmart is evil for their buisiness practices and what they are doing to communities and less educated people only see lower prices and not the harm. Target is a lesser evil. I think history will look back on this time and those who did not support the gay community will seem like those who didn't support integration. I have made some phone calls and it truly seems these funds were given to this senator to expand business and that target has been a champion for the gay community and they plan on doing so in the future. The LBGT community look like bullies on this one. ) ;



  32. 32

    LOL I'm still shopping target. I think the only way for them to not look like biggots is to donate money to both sides so really the people who made the video are not being political correct even if they are going for a good cause and I think they went way over board by doing that. No store whether for gay rights or against would allow that.



  33. 33

    How was that funny? Its not the poor employees fault. This just proves how pathetic and childish some gays are.

  34. fiona says – reply to this


    34

    That was really stupid and those people should have been arrested.



  35. 35

    That wasn't funny and didn't get a point across to anybody. Use your time in a more constructive way.



  36. 36

    who cares Target is awesome!



  37. 37

    I shopped at target today! I love that place.



  38. 38

    Why go after a store that had nothing to do with the actual donation? Did the workers have any say in the donation? Heck no! Why go after them? They probably didn't have a clue? People can be so stupid. If you want to make a statement, go to the headquarters, not a random Target in hicksville.



  39. 39

    Let it be noted I have absolutely NOTHING agaist GLBT population, have a lot of gay friends and so, but I think sometimes they go too far! people are free in the US to do what ever the hell they want to do! It's annoying how they push their agenda down people's throats as if every single human had the OBLIGATION to support them! I find it so funny how at the end of the vid they DEMAND that they donate the money to queer folk! So it's ok to donate to homosexuals and not ok to donate to heterosexuals.. talk about double standards.. that's a same, should have more sense by now.



  40. 40

    These activists are annoying. Make gays look bad.



  41. 41

    Yeah, and they support things like Toys for Tots. What balls this corporation has giving toys to needy children! They have also received coroporate philantrophy awards, imagine the nerve! Perez, your journalism expertise is seconded only to your grasp of American English grammar and spelling. You only gave us one-quarter of the story. Of course, being the impartial "journalist" you are, we would only get the part that has to do with GAY. You're an asshole in every sense of the word.



  42. 42

    So what if someone hates gays ? You hate heterosexuals asshole …oh and women of course.



  43. 43

    Can I buy a TV set at Target that pixellates out all phaggy people? Especially pig-vomit Mario Lardveranda.



  44. 44

    THIS IS STOOPID!!!! WHY PICKET A STORE WHEN THEY SHUD BE PICKETING THE GOP DUDE OR THE HEAD OFFICE OF TARGET??? MORONS.



  45. 45

    I think this is going over board! I love Target and will always shop at target!



  46. 46

    I think that's MY hometwon Target! No way am i shopping there anymore!!!

  47. Shaun says – reply to this


    47

    this makes me hate gay people. funnly how they want equal rights but no one else can have equal rights. pathetic.



  48. 48

    this is ridiculous…i love target and will continue to proudly spend my money there!



  49. 49

    Target still has the right to donate to whomever they wish to donate too. It is STILL A FREE WORLD (I think anyway)… maybe that has changed.



  50. 50

    Re: mageick9
    AMEN, someone with a BRAIN and BALLS!!!



  51. 51

    Right On!!
    Shame on you Target!
    Oprah will drop your ass this coming season too!



  52. 52

    Fuck it I like Target lol



  53. 53

    Re: mitcheltodd88 – But it is her job to make sure customers are being taken care of and in this case being harassed by protestors who are also targeting innocent people that had nothing to do with the donation. No one should have to be subjected to that while at work, especially a job where it's tough enough just making minimum wage, and then having to deal with this shit. I'm not against making yourself heard on an issue, but for gods sake make sure the RIGHT people hear you! This was pointless and did nothing for their cause.



  54. 54

    Ever since I heard this news I have refused to step foot into a Target (and I used to shop there 4 times a week minimum). I don't think shopping centers or really any big name store should be allowed to donate $$ to a candate (call it conflict of interest). I don't think that it's up to a store, or any political canidate to decide for themselves what's right for a person when it comes to love. In my state we have one of the biggestt anti gay people out there in Kelly Ayotte.. trust me she's not getting my vote. OK>. that's my rant for today



  55. 55

    My god. If Target wants to donate to MN Forward, they can. I don't understand how these people can go in there and cause a huge interruption to the business and the customers. That dumb ass lady with the megaphone kept spewing the word shit was unnecessary, little kids are there with their parents!



  56. 56

    I mean there are children in the store. You just don't go into a store and start spouting off "shit" in the store. People need to STOP taking EVERY little thing so personally…..



  57. 57

    I love that Target blonde with the pony tail "Thank you, good-bye!".



  58. 58

    That was NOT okay. Its not right what target did, but if I had my 3 yr old son in there while they were swearing and causing a huge scene like that, I would have been pissed. They did nothing to help their cause.



  59. 59

    What a bunch of nerds. Stop wasting everyone's time and mosey on over to Wal-Mart. All this work these dorks put into this it's not even making a blip on Target's radar…in total sales of course.



  60. 60

    I would of had him held and arrested for disturbing the police and disrupting business and scaring customers. No one likes those IN YOUR FACE tactics except those who already agree with you. Just another young asshole not knowing how to work the system to get some positive results.



  61. 61

    This was a 2:23 that I cannot take back. I will never be able to unsee this video. But seriously I dont like target anyway but this was not necessary. Complaints should go to the headquarters and not to the stores where the top CEO's are not even there nor care.



  62. 62

    I don't understand something…you say equality for all..but when that beauty queen said she didn't believe in gay marriage, you went after her with vengeance, and even called her a bitch on a national news channel, all because her beliefs were different than yours.
    Now how is that equality for all??

    You can't pick and choose.



  63. 63

    Target didn't donated the money. The CEO did. He should be able to give money to who ever he wants.



  64. 64

    Re: niffernh – well, thank the supreme court for that. It was just made legal A FEW MONTHS AGO. They did not uphold a ban on corporate and union restrictions on donations to candidates. So, whatever company, or union, can donate WHATEVER, TO WHOEVER. And, Mario, those protesters you think are so great are idiots. They are just getting shoppers mad, and those shoppers will not support their cause. If shoppers are mad, they will take it out on employees, who have NOTHING TO DO WITH CORPORATE DONATIONS. Now, you have 2 groups against you. Why didn't these protestors take it down to corporate headquarters? Or were they mad, but not mad enough to find out where that was?



  65. 65

    AND, did Target say they were against Gays? NO! No matter what candidate they support, SOMEONE IS NOT GOING TO LIKE IT. This has to be a business decision. Probably to do with taxes, district lines, tariffs, etc.



  66. 66

    Make sure you don't shop at Target. Perez, you idiot. Do you know who gets burned first on moratoriums? The little guy? The single parent eaking out a living? The person who is gay or lesbian who needs their Target paycheck? How about a hard working lower middle class bargain shopper trying to save money on back to school shopping for his or her children? Someone on social security or disabilty? All of the above.
    .
    The last time I checked Target was a private corporation. They can do whatever the heck they want to do. Why do you … of all people … need to tell anyone not to shop there? Oh yeah, I forgot, it's all about the gay agenda for you.
    .
    Yawn …



  67. 67

    Those poor employees don't have anything to do with this…that stunt was embarrassing for their cause.



  68. 68

    Morons. Plain & simple.
    They need to get a life.
    I'm dropping mad dollars today at Target.



  69. 69

    Hey guess what, buying cell phones made out of minerals like coltan fuels civil wars… what about that? Jesus christ, half the clothing/products we buy costs lives everyday… sooo.. this is an overreaction.



  70. 70

    No, not "good for them" Perez. The general stores of Target corp. are not to blame, it ist he corporation itself! These activists aren't making their point by making employees feel awkward because the employees didn't donate the money. They need to go directly to the corporate people and talk to them. This is so stupid and exactly why I hate "activists"…they don't think through their plans. Their actions do not help at ALL. It just makes them look ignorant.



  71. 71

    that was so tasteless. it's an embarrassment for liberals. there are other ways to get your point across without going into the establishment and talking shit on a megaphone. that wasn't funny or cool. it was just idiotic.



  72. 72

    This video is utterly pointless and the people who made it are narcissistic assholes. Sure, Target made a dickhead move by donating that money, but let people make their own decisions instead of these losers barreling in and being even bigger dickheads. These morons make Target look good.

  73. JCPR says – reply to this


    73

    i don't care!



  74. 74

    I love how this video production was sponsored by moveon.org. apparently nobody can express their own opinion without corporate backing. dont tell me moveon.org doesnt profit some people… I dont shop at a store because of their political views, i shop for their products.

    And FYI Target is a publicly traded company which means its owned by anyone who buys a share…. so in reality, the people are donating their money to their chosen politician. actually, target just donated it to another group that supported the candidate. its not like they have him on their commercials….



  75. 75

    How is this funny? You tape individuals against their will to give off the impression they support the Target Corp. bigotry. People need to work. What do you expect them to do?

    Attacking an individual store for decisions made at the corporate level is just retarded. These people need to get jobs. They are probably collecting unemployment as we speak. I'm not surprised you find this amuzing. As a political activist, this does NOTHING for your cause. It just makes you look stupid. I'd like to see them walk into the Target Headquarters spewing that crap. They should have been arrested.



  76. 76

    Im going to shop at target today just because of this stupid ass video! These people are freaking dumb, they are just making gays look bad!



  77. 77

    Hmm……give me what I want or I'm going to ruin you. If Target had handed over the money to that gay group - this wouldn't be happening. Could it be???? What's the word I'm looking for? Oh yeah. Extortion.



  78. 78

    YOU AND YOU'RE PEOPLE ARE RIDICULOUS! GAY PEOPLE ARE OVERYLY DRAMATIC AND JUMP TO GAY CONCLUSIONS. DID YOU EVER THINK THEY DONATED MONEY AND IT DIDNT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE GAY PART OF IT? EITHER WAY I WOULD DONATE EVERY PENNY I MADE TO A REPUBLICAN WHO ALSO BELIEVED IN NOT ALLOWING GAYS TO BE MARRIED IN MY COUNTRY. GOD GOESNT LIKE THEM SO WHY SHOULD AMERICANS?



  79. 79

    I see America changing and more open dialogue about the LBGT community and then Perex Hilton becomes a bully and part of the problem. As s/one pointed out everytime a gay or single mom loses their job because of these bully obnoxious ill thought tactics they are hurting the awareness of their own community. SHAME SHAME SHAME PEREZ KUDOS to your smarty pants followers for seeing your ignorance! (;



  80. 80

    First of all-Target is not anti-gay-in fact they are one of the few Corporations that provide domestic partnership benefits! How is that Bigotry?



  81. 81

    This is a really stupid video… I have no idea what this is about. A little explanation in the video would have been good. I'm on team Target because it's completely basic that when you want to persuade a group of people not to shop somewhere, you might want to use an argument that's better than "corporate greed". *rolls eyes* I love gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgendered and transsexuals, but when idiots come out with stupid videos that are completely pointless, I tell them they should shove it up their asses.

    Who cares where their money goes? They can do whatever they want with it! Love Target and I will shop there all I want.

    Re: vinman043

    I agree.



  84. 84

    are you serious?..I'm sorry, but this is stupid. I support gay rights (i'm not gay) and believe that everyone needs to live their lives as they pleased..but why impose your beliefs on someone else's?
    i'm just wondering…let's say…when gays are fully accepted and able to marry and have all the rights that they want…what's next? what are those groups going to fight for afterwards?

    That is it for me. I am all for equal rights, but this site is dedicated to this shit. Those poor employees are feeling the brunt of confrontationist assholes. Enough!



  89. 89

    …and do you ever, EVER, read comments on here? Have you a clue?



  90. 90

    They can donate to whoever you want. The only one being a bigot here is you Perez for not allowing people to have a voice.



  91. 91

    going to a random store doesn't prove fucking anything … go right to the source you fucking idiots… the people working there shouldn't be harassed .. they need jobs they make minimum wage or a bit higher.. go to the corporate office not the people who need the jobs because they have to put food on their fucking table.. stupid fucking idiots



  92. 92

    time to go shopping, Target here I come. This was way overboard!



  93. 93

    "Equality for all!!!"

    Except if they disagree with you. LOL The stupid must really hurt sometimes, heh?



  94. 94

    Good for Target! Acting like an asswipe is never good for any group. Grow up you pathetic shites.



  95. 95

    I try not to get political, but…

    How is this any different than the atheists who are trying to cut religion out of everything, simply because THEY don't believe in it? Whatever happened to freedom of religion? Whoever this politician is, he obviously has every right to oppose gay marriage. Those are his beliefs, and trying to hate him because of it is just as hurtful as him trying to stop gay marriage.

    Grow up, Perez. There will never be equal rights for all, because if you give one group what they want, there will always be another group who is denied. If you make the gays happy, you upset religious people. If you give religious people what they want, you upset the gays.

    I'm not going to stop shopping at Target because your little feelings were hurt.



  96. 96

    Target is damn weird–they don't let US Marines collect funds/donations for their toys-for-tots program, in fact, they are very anti-US military.



  97. 97

    I don't understand, now we all have to think queers are wonderful, or get our stores slimed? This is now some kind of law?



  98. 98

    Re: Secret Message – Not correct. They would NOT let the US Marines take funds/donations for toys-for-tots at their store locations; Target is very anti-US Military.



  99. 99

    Target is so not anti-gay. I used to work at two locations. At each location, I felt that the only people employed there were gay!



  100. 100

    this is so wrong…this is what makes people hate gay people…sad that people think this is a good way to accomplish anything….bad enough what they were doing, but they had to say shit …nice word in a family store with children.
