LGBT Radicals Allegedly Send Bomb Threats To Target

Anonymous emails sent by alleged radical LGBT activists to Target reportedly contained bomb threats against several Target stores in at least three states — Utah, Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Target has been facing significant backlash from conservatives and average Americans over their decision to feature LGBT Pride-themed merchandise at the front of their stores, especially products targeting children.

A boycott began immediately in response to Target’s decision to sell LGBT-themed infant and toddler clothes, as well as their decision to place their “Pride” collection at the front of the store for children to see — with parents asserting that the placement of the LGBT items would prompt a difficult and inappropriate conversation with their children.


Reports soon emerged that Target was panicking over the boycott, as shoppers confronted employees and the company’s stock dropped a significant amount.

Target responded to the backlash by moving their “Pride” displays elsewhere in many stores and began scaling back their LGBT merchandise.

“Since introducing this year’s collection, we’ve experienced threats impacting our team members’ sense of safety and well-being while at work,” Target claimed in a statement earlier this month, despite there being little to no evidence of actual threats from those angered over the LGBT-themed merchandise.

“Given these volatile circumstances, we are making adjustments to our plans, including removing items that have been at the center of the most significant confrontational behavior,” the company added.

However, Target’s decision to move and scale back “Pride” products prompted outrage from the radical left — especially LGBT activists.


In the latest escalation of that outrage, bomb threats were made via email allegedly from radical LGBT activists.

“Target is full of [redacted] cowards who turned their back on the LGBT community and decided to cater to the homophobic right-wing redneck bigots who protested and vandalized their store,” the email reportedly read.

Speaking with USA Today, Salt Lake City police communications director Brent Weisberg said that officers had ultimately determined there was no “credible threat” against the two Target stores in the city that were listed in the email.

“Officers will continue neighborhood patrols around the Target locations in Salt Lake City out of an abundance of caution,” Weisberg said in the statement.

“We encourage anyone who sees anything suspicious to immediately call 911,” the police communications director added.

In a statement, Target announced that stores will remain open with their regular hours, as they have entrusted the matter to law enforcement.

“Law enforcement investigated these claims and determined our stores are safe,” the company’s statement read.

Meanwhile, the left and their allies in the media have used the fact that the threats were not carried out and that the emails came from a “bogus email address” to claim that the entire thing was a “hoax.” However, the individual or individuals behind the emails have not yet been identified — and it is still unclear if the emails were intended as a “hoax” to implicate the radical left or whether they were actually from radical LGBT activists and only intended to spark fear.
