Hey Target, guess who actually has money to spend at your stores and geographically where are your stores most located and how do those geographic areas vote? Silly Target, Liberals are either on food stamps or they just filed for bankruptcy and have no money because they are financially unsophisticated. You Target just made a tragic mistake in backing down to economic liberal delinquents because people with money are actually going to boycott you now......Good bye

In my book, Target was funding a "hate based" cause and, in general, I think Target should lower their prices instead of funneling my income to things like this. As a conservative, it appalls me that folks like Tom Emmer want bigger government; it's time to let folks live out their own lives in peace! So Target should ask for their money back and say: "expect more. discriminate less."

For donating to the Republicans? Do we no longer have the freedom of choice or have the LIBS taken that away too.

Now either get your 'donation' back or make a similar donation, or larger, to a more friendly organization to offset the $150K

Hey Strib: Are you going to make a big deal out of it if Target gives to a "pro gay" group?

Moveon.org certainly has the right to their opinions, however dishonest and wrongheaded. The trouble is that this ultra-liberal group does not believe the same right to free speech applies to others. What about the terrible ads the labor unions are running against Tom Emmer? The Democrat's approach to the fall elections is slander and more slander.
