In a shocking move that has left many Americans scratching their heads, retail giant Target has taken its commitment to “diversity, equity, and inclusion” to a whole new level. The company has made a deal with the devil, figuratively speaking, by hiring an avowed Satanist as a product designer for its “Pride” collection. This latest endeavor by Target raises serious questions about the direction of corporate America and the values it promotes.
Target’s decision to bring on board an individual known as Abprallen, who openly associates Satanism with LGBT activism, has sparked a firestorm of controversy. Abprallen proudly declares that Satan loves and respects all individuals, promoting the notion that being a product of Satan is somehow a positive thing. With slogans like “Cure trans phobia, not trans people” emblazoned on their sweatshirts, it becomes clear that Target is not simply embracing diversity but actively endorsing a dangerous ideology.
While Target has positioned itself as a champion of progressivism and a bastion of social justice, its latest move blurs the line between acceptance and radicalism. By associating its brand with symbols of Satanism, such as the image of the demon Baphomet, Target risks alienating a significant portion of its customer base. Are these the values that the average American shopper supports? Or is Target simply unaware of the people it aligns itself with?
Erik, the self-proclaimed “gay, trans man” who owns the controversial brand Abprallen, argues that Satan represents hope, compassion, equality, and love. What a foolish man! Satan has never “loved” anyone but himself and giving credibility to these distorted beliefs, Target risks undermining the very fabric of our society.
Unsurprisingly, the decision to hire a Satanist as a product designer has sparked outrage. Social media platforms have been inundated with comments from individuals expressing their disappointment and vowing to boycott Target stores indefinitely. It seems that Target, in its relentless pursuit of progressivism, has forgotten that its success ultimately depends on the support of everyday Americans.
Target’s foray into Satanism under the guise of promoting “Pride” is a dangerous precedent that should not be taken lightly. While advocating for inclusivity and celebrating diversity are important goals, embracing an ideology that goes against the fundamental values of our society is a step too far.
It is crucial that we, as consumers, hold companies like Target accountable for the messages they promote and the alliances they form – especially an alliance with Satan.
