Target Corporation donated $150,000 to Minnesota Forward last month, an organization that was founded by Minnesota based employers in order to support candidates who understand the importance of creating private-sector jobs in their state. Not that it should come as a surprise to anyone in Minnesota, but their initial round of endorsements were for seven fiscally conservative individuals on both sides of the aisle:
Tom Emmer for Governor (GOP).
Terri Bonoff for Senate (DFL).
Gene Pelowski for House (DFL).
Doug Magnus for Senate (GOP).
Doug Wardlow for House (GOP).
Jim Metzen for Senate (DFL).
Kurt Zellers for House (GOP).
So why is Target being Targeted by kooks on the left?
Besides for the 91% rating that Mr.Emmer received from the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, and his DFL opponent receiving a rating that was a third of that, he is also a socially conservative individual who does not believe in homosexual marriage or abortion, but those are side issues in his statewide campaign devoted to fiscal conservatism.
There you have it. Target is being Targeted because one of the candidates who received one of many endorsements from a organization that Target donated $150,000 to last month is socially conservative on abortion and marriage. The left is disgraceful and deranged.
Bull (the reasoning, not the disgracefulness of the left).This has nothing to do with Mr.Emmer, or with Minnesota Forward, but with liberal intolerance and hatred towards businesses that have just as much right to be involved in Local, Statewide and National elections as everyone else does. Nothing more, nothing less. It's liberal intolerance in America attempting to browbeat opposition into submission.
