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 MoveOn.org, 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.
MoveOn.org, 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?
