Inappropriate! Major Retailers Sponsoring Far Left Event in Boise, Idaho

Note: This article may contain commentary or the author's opinion.

Anyone ever shop at Target? Maybe do your banking at CitiBank or Wells Fargo? Call your friends on your T-Mobile phone? Kick back and have some Jim Beam, or a nice Mike’s Hard lemonade? I’ll pass on the Mike’s Hard, it’s a bit sugary for my liking, but I’ll have the Jim Beam, please.

Ever wonder what causes that your favorite retailers and brands donate to? Who does Target support? Do your favorite brands and retailers reflect your values, or are you just paying companies that hate you and everything you stand for? It’s understandable if you shop any of these retailers or use any of these products or services, we all do. We can’t know every cause, no matter how far left of center that they donate too. However, when you find out do you stop doing business with them? Maybe you should.

The Boise, Idaho Pride Festival is being held September 9-11, which is inappropriate enough considering the significance of 9/11, but there is a specific event taking place that is sponsored by the retailers and brands I mentioned, among others. Apparently, Target isn’t the only retailer that deals in “grooming” supplies. Check this out from Breitbart:

Wells Fargo, Target, Hewlett-Packard, and CitiBank are sponsoring an event in Boise, Idaho, that will feature child drag performers. 

The Boise Pride Festival will have an event called “Drag Kids on Stage.” The description reads, “You have watched the queens and kings, now it’s time to see the kids.”

Just gross. These companies are sponsoring an event totally inappropriate for children to witness, no less be involved in. The indoctrination of our youth continues, and our favorite brands are right there funding it.

“Come and cheer them on as they bring drag to the younger generation,” the description reads. The festival will also include a drag queen story hour and will host at least four different events with drag performers.

It’s one thing to be accepting of the lgbtq and the rest of the alphabet army, but to openly support the participation of children in the event is beyond the pale. Who thinks this is a good idea? Who are the suits at Target that think dressing kids up as cartoonishly exaggerated depictions of women is a fun family activity? This makes me wish K Mart was still a thing!

Various other corporations, including T-Mobile, Zion Bank, the Blue Cross of Idaho, Gilead, Albertsons, and Intuit, also sponsored the Boise Pride Festival. Several alcohol companies, including Tito’s, Jack Daniel’s, Smirnoff, Mike’s Hard Lemonade, and Rey Azul, a tequila company, are all sponsoring the event as well. 

We have to take our business elsewhere. I know it’s hard. I use many of these companies myself, but if this nonsense is going to stop and children are going to be protected from leftist indoctrination, then the cash flow has to dry up. Understand that these companies don’t really care about lgbtq issues, they just want their business.

Remember when Hobby Lobby and Chik-Fil-A were harshly criticized because they donated to causes they believed in? Why isn’t the same criticism being heard now? If the mainstream media won’t call this out, we have to take our money and business elsewhere. Until then, these leftist corporations will continue to indoctrinate, like the event in Boise.
