Get BLM to protect your stores
Target spokesperson Jessica Carlson told AFP, “As part of our dress code, team members can wear a combination of red, denim and khaki, as long as their dress is not derogatory, vulgar, profane or directly referencing a political candidate. Based on these guidelines, this team member is in line with our dress code.”
And Target gave BLM and the “black community” $100 million.But hey, that in no way is that BLM shirt an official Target uniform.
Best Buy announced, “Best Buy Commits More Than $44 Million to Diversity, Inclusion and Community Efforts.”
Nordstrom also sided with the BLM rioters in 2020.They wanted change.They got change.
Now they want Congress to save them from the cha-cha-changes.
CNN reported, “The CEOs of Target, Best Buy, Nordstrom, Home Depot and CVS are among a group of 20 retail leaders who sent a letter Thursday to Congress expressing their concern over a recent wave of brazen store robberies in major US cities and urged lawmakers to take action.
“The group called on Congress to pass legislation that would deter criminals from being able to easily resell stolen merchandise, specifically online.”
Nope. Sorry. We are not going to stop people from selling online simply to appease a bunch of fat-cats who climbed into bed with Democrat mayors and wound up with their stores being looted.
In its letter, the Retail Industry Leaders Association said, “In the current environment, criminal networks and unscrupulous businesses have exploited a system that protects their anonymity to sell unsafe, stolen or counterfeit products with little legal recourse.”Too bad.
It’s a local problem that Target, Best Buy, Nordstrom and the rest can take up with City Hall, not Congress.
The story said, “Several Best Buy outlets in Minnesota were also looted on Black Friday.”
I laughed when I read that. They thought they paid the thieves off with that $44 million in Diversity, Inclusion and Community Efforts (DICE) money. That only encouraged theft.
They should have spent the money on security.
Their money. Their choice. Their problem.
