CANDACE OWENS (HOST): And just in case you think that conservatives are wrong or are joking when we say this stuff is satanic, Target actually hired a satanic designer. I'm not kidding. This designer identifies as a Satanist.


And what I can appreciate, at the very least, about someone like Eric Carnell, is that at least he's acknowledging that transgenderism is, in fact, satanic. It is a perversion of the truth. It is meant to harm people. It is meant to target – pun very much intended – children with this harmful ideology, it is meant to convince them to commit to decisions that will ultimately ruin their lives. You do not get your private parts back once you start to experiment with them. There's no way that you can reverse those sorts of trends, and they are aware of that because people are conscious about that.

And so, finally, I would say, we have, as I said earlier, found a topic and a subject that we are saying absolutely not to. Conservatives have responded to Target by saying, we will not shop there. We are planning to boycott Target. And guess what's happened? Well, the alarms went off at Targets. The CEO and other directors on their team met because they are concerned that they must get – that they might become Bud Lighted, which is to say that they can completely sink their company because they have committed to this ideology. And now, I am imploring every single person that is watching this to double down. Okay? We have them nervous, we have them cornered, it is very simple for you to commit to never shopping at Target again. There is nothing that Target has that you cannot get somewhere else. Okay? We cannot just be the individuals that lament and complain and try to explain that the world is all going into a horrible direction and yet we do nothing about it in our personal capacity. We cannot continue to be those individuals.

I think that my colleague, Matt Walsh, probably said it best in this tweet. He wrote, the goal is to make Pride toxic for brands. If they decide to shove this garbage in our face, they should know that they'll pay a price. It won't be worth whatever they think they'll gain. First, Bud Light, and now Target. Our campaign is making progress. Let's keep going. And he is absolutely right. It is making progress. And it's absolutely right that we have them scared. As I said, we have them backed into a corner, and now is absolutely the time for us to pounce. So do not shop at Target or else you're gay and you're a pervert. And that's all I have to say about that.
