First a disclaimer. I came across this article and I honestly don’t know if it’s a spoof or not, but I’m still posting it because it’s point is valid. Here’s the article:
“Outraged” Christian Parents Boycott Gay-Promoting Target While Happily Shipping Their Kids To Gay-Promoting Public Schools
One of the major points I have hoped to drive home in this blog is that no one has escaped the schoolhouse’s indoctrination. Most of our thinking has been programmed to some degree or another by the institution in which we spent most of our young lives. To fight the moral decline you must first fight the foundations upon which that decline is based, and not the symptoms that are coming our way as a result of it. And to fight the foundations you must first identify them. And to identify them you must first ferret out where they’ve been encoded into your own mind, and then reprogram your own thinking so that you might begin to understand what’s happening. If something seems somewhat normal to you, and you know that same thing would have seemed outrageous throughout all known human history barring the last few years, that’s probably a great place to start ferriting. Only after you’ve begun to shed the modern mindset can you even think about making a difference in your culture. Perhaps the best place to start is to rid yourself of the notion that a government that is pushing hard for the same thing Target has done should be allowed anywhere near your children’s education.
So back to the featured article. It’s about people who can’t see the difference in the schoolhouse just down the street teaching what Target is doing, and Target doing what it is teaching. The big players and orchestrators of our decline are working tirelessly on your child’s mind every day while you think you’re accomplishing something by taking a few extra minutes to get your pencils at Walmart.
So here’s the excerpt that arouses my suspicions about the authenticity of this article:
“Sure, we might lose a few backpack and glue stick sales in the short run,” noted a Target representative in a brief press release. “But at the end of the day, with even most of these supposedly ‘outraged’ protesting parents choosing to freely ship their kids off for daily training in the LGBTQ-promoting worldview of State-run schools, we’re confident that things will work out just fine.”
“You don’t have to be a rocket scientist – or even a Target store clerk – to see that the way these folks are allowing their children to be educated is setting us up quite nicely in the long run.”
I personally can’t believe a “Target representative” would actually say this. But it doesn’t matter, it’s still true.
As for me, I’ve stopped shopping at Target, which happens to be the nearest grocery store to my house. And not only that, I think you should too. But I will suggest a step further. If you want to make a real difference, go ahead and buy your shool supplies at Target, and then teach your children at home away from the “Target” madness because we might just as well face it; when someone actually has to organize a boycott, it’s too late. To drive that point home I’ll ask you to consider this one thing. If Target had made this its policy forty years ago, would have an organized boycott been necessary? That’s a silly question isn’t it? Of course, it’s impossible to know such things from experience because corporations aren’t that stupid.
Organized boycotts are like surrender flags in a way. When you have to tell people to not shop somewhere because that “somewhere” has adopted an insane view of gender, then the war is lost. And make no mistake, this is war. But Target is not the enemy. The little flat-roofed government building down the street, where children are taught the awesome wonders of killing babies, homosexuality, gender confusion, earth worship, Secular Humanism, Islam–as well as the evils of Christianity and the drudgery of child raising and family… now there’s the enemy.
So if you want to really do something, boycott the government schoolhouse. No, you’re not going to change culture by doing it, but you will give your children a decent running start at changing it in their lifetime. And even if they don’t, at least you will save them from some of the moral corruption being encoded into the poor young minds who are sent there.
