Their logo is pretty uncivil too

Beltway Confidential:

Photos of First Lady Michelle Obama were featured on all major network newscasts yesterday as she was spotted shopping at a local Target retail store wearing a hat and sunglasses.

Target notoriously sparked the outrage of liberals and LGTB activists after donating money to Republicans in Minnesota.

Just last year activists at, funded by liberal billionaire George Soros sponsored a huge campaign against Target creating a “Boycott Target” group on Facebook and collecting over 260,000 supportive signatures.

“Target’s refusal to acknowledge its customers’ outrage at their attempt to buy elections is scandalous,” said Justin Ruben, Executive Director of MoveOn, at the time.

Word of the boycott has subsided in recent months, and an investment fund controlled by billionaire George Soros purchased 543,900 shares of Target stock in August 2011.

But if the boycott is over, someone forgot to tell the 80,000+ members of the Boycott Target Facebook group.

“OMG! Michelle Obama is on the news for having shopped at Target. Let the current administration know that they need only to deal with companies who support a liberal agenda.” wrote an incredulous member., hasn’t responded for a request for comment on the issue.

I guess I should read those MoveOn emails they still keep sending me. Then I could have felt virtuous for not shopping at Target. Now if only I didn’t have to feel guilty for shopping at Walmart.

BTW – I never really understood this “George Soros/Koch Brothers” dueling boogeyman thing. Why single them out?

    It’s pretty funny that MO’s ” regular folks” photo op is also a big middle finger to their base. Typical.

    I have a hard time keeping track of who I’m supposed to boycott. First, I’m supposed to shop at Whole Foods (my DIL calls it “Whole Paycheck”) because I’m supposed to be eating healthier and supporting locally grown food. Then I’m supposed to boycott Whole Foods because the CEO doesn’t like ObamaCare. I’m supposed to boycott Target because they give campaign money to conservatives and that hurts gays and lesbians. Now Michelle Obama goes shopping at Target so I guess it’s OK for me to shop there, too. I’m supposed to be in downtown Boston picketing Bank of America, but I’m supposed to vote for their enablers. Is it OK if I pick some stuff up at WalMart? Their pharmacy gives me a discount on the dog’s meds,and no one else does. I know they treat women badly, but all of the pharmacists at our local Wally’s are women, and they tell me they like working there. The store manager lets them do their own scheduling. Can I buy the grandkid a Happy Meal now that McDonald’s puts apples in them? Is there a food chain that supplies last meals to people on death row that I can avoid? Who do I boycott to protest the assassination of American citizens without due process? Macy’s? Sears? JC Penney? Nordstrom? Neiman Marcus?
