Pride Month and the Left’s Fairytale Villains
Companies nationwide pay homage to the Rainbow Mafia, and when anyone objects, suddenly they’re a “bigot” and an oppressor.
Leftists are always the victims in their fairytale about oppression. The latest kerfuffle over “pride” merchandise and marketing is no exception.
Just take a look at the media headlines:
“Target stores in at least five states receive bomb threats over Pride items” —The Hill
“Target stores see more bomb threats over Pride merchandise” —The Washington Post
“Experts warn against canceling Pride campaigns after extremists threaten Target” —ABC News
“How major brands were forced into the conservative plan to target LGBTQ people” —NBC News
To be clear, after some Target stores moved or removed some pride merchandise (some of which was designed by a Satanist and some of which was targeted at small children), prominent Democrats accused the retail giant of “selling out” and the Rainbow Mafia issued bomb threats, causing some stores to temporarily close. This, the Leftmedia propagandists want you to know, is the fault of conservatives.
In The Hill and The Washington Post, you have to read several paragraphs into their respective stories to learn that it was leftists who issued the bomb threats after their headlines implied the opposite. The same goes for ABC:
“Target reported that its employees faced threats over its new Pride collections celebrating the LGBTQ+ community and responded by pulling some of the merchandise that had caused the most ‘significant confrontational behavior’ to protect the safety and wellbeing of its employees.”
What were these threats? Saying mean things like “I won’t buy your products” on Twitter? ABC doesn’t say.
It did, however, report: “Several Targets also received bomb threats over Memorial Day weekend related to the controversy. … The threats reportedly called for the return of LGBTQ+ items to the shelves [emphasis added].”
None of the aforementioned media outlets even hint at the idea that maybe issuing bomb threats is a bad idea, even when their allies do it. In fact, all of them fret over and lecture conservatives for provoking anger.
ABC’s story then immediately quoted an academic “who researches the white nationalist movement.” She thinks “this will embolden alt-right actors.” After that, ABC appealed to an “expert” at the disgraced hate-baiting grift organization known as the Southern Poverty Law Center. He clicks his tongue over the “bigots” who will “feel emboldened” by any company that slightly backs off on pounding pride propaganda.
Again, to be clear, the bigots in his mind aren’t the Rainbow Mafia clowns issuing bomb threats and demanding “inclusive” compliance. The bigots aren’t the social media censors silencing anyone who still believes in basic biology or traditional American values — you know, like Joe Biden did until five minutes ago. No, according to The Narrative, the only villains are conservatives who object to having rainbow garbage shoved in our faces by every corporation and media outlet in the country.
NBC tells us how this game works. “Bud Light and Target were not always political punching bags,” its story begins. “But both companies have been drawn into the center of a long-brewing conservative battle after the brands released campaigns supporting or featuring LGBTQ people.”
Starbucks, says The New Republic, “has banned Pride decorations in stores,” which is “a stunning cave to far-right anti-LGBTQ fury.”
See, here these innocent companies were just minding their own business and trying to “be more inclusive” when suddenly mean conservatives decided to hate them.
Fact-check: It wasn’t conservatives who drew anyone into this battle. It was the Alphabet People compulsively demanding to be celebrated and affirmed every moment of every day all year long. It was companies deciding they’d rather send loud and flamboyant political messages on behalf of 5% of the population than simply sell beer or clothing to every American.
Leftists are virtually always the aggressors in the culture war. Conservatives are merely trying to conserve what nearly everyone agreed was desirable just a few short years ago. For that, we’re labeled “extremists,” “bigots,” and “haters,” even when the Rainbow Mafia is literally issuing bomb threats.
Historically, leftists have been the ones using boycotts to great effect, forcing conformity with their views or destroying businesses that don’t go along. Conservatives are beginning to learn to fight back in the same manner.
Millions of Americans don’t hate anyone. We just don’t want our beer, baseball, and bathing suits to have to reflect the sexual decisions of a tiny minority. We hate to be crass, but we just can’t understand why literally everything has to be about affirming someone’s choice of genitals or what they do with those body parts. We don’t get why “inclusivity” means being forced by even conservative news outlets to see pictures of a man flaunting his surgically implanted feminine breasts on the White House lawn.
Forget pride, which is hardly a virtue in any case. Whatever happened to basic decency?
