The chair of Moms for Liberty chapter is calling for “repercussions” for the retail company Target after it was discovered to be partnering with a Satanist apparel designer.

Critics are outraged that Target partnered with the U.K.-based brand Abprallen, whose designer, Eric Carnell, is also an outspoken Satanist, according to Fox News.

While not included in the Target line of clothing, the Abprallen brand features Satanic imagery and woke slogans such as “Satan respects pronouns,” said Fox News, a reference to the importance the LGBT community puts on pronoun usage.

The inclusion of Abprallen is an attempt by Target to market to the LGBT community as a part of a “gay pride” campaign. 

Abprallen is currently selling two products on Target’s website, a messenger bag that says “Too queer for here,” and a sweatshirt that says “Cure transphobia,” said Fox. 

Scarlett Johnson, a county chair for the Wisconsin group Moms for Liberty told The Lion that while Target’s attempts to market to the gay community last year were merely “irritating,” this year she felt like the store was “vomiting rainbows” at her as soon as she walked in the door. 

She was especially appalled at the attempts to normalize trans behavior with children. She said it was part of a pattern by corporate and political leaders, who are afraid of the LGBTQ lobby, to normalize aberrant behavior. 

“Drag queens dressed in costumes with men mocking the Christian faith, mocking Catholics openly. Now openly Satanic messages. I know that this isn’t about what customers want,” said Johnson. “This is what they’re trying to force us to accept, force us to tolerate.” 

Johnson called the media’s attempt to downplay the Satanic connection to Target “embarrassing,” but not necessarily surprising. 

“They are more in fear of the LGBTQ lobby than they are of consumers,” Johnson told The Lion about companies like Target, Anheuser-Busch and the MLB’s Dodgers

Each of those companies has been embroiled in controversy when they chose to alienate large numbers of their consumer base to market to radical fringe elements inside the LGBTQ community. 

“And so far they have faced no repercussions. We have to align our values with companies that respect us and hopefully entrepreneurs see this as an opportunity,” Johnson added.   

Johnson said that if ordinary Americans don’t take action now against a company like Target for embracing Satanists, “things will only get worse.” 

“I mean, I think that’s not too much to ask that we would like for our money to not go to designers and corporations that are funding Satanists,” said Johnson.  

She held out little hope, however, that companies like Target will listen to consumers, who she says just want to be left alone to shop for their families.  

She’s hoping instead that smart entrepreneurs will see it as an opportunity to market to families, letting them know there’s someplace they can shop free from the culture wars and radical politics.  

She also contrasted how in corporate culture today anything associated with former President Donald Trump, or Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis causes controversy, yet a company like Target can embrace a Satanist, and the Dodgers can invite drag queens who dress up like nuns and parade their anti-Catholic bigotry, without fear of repercussions.    

“You know, we spend a lot of money, billions and billions of dollars every year, and it’s up for grabs to the person that is willing to stand up to the world’s [LGBTQ and woke] mafia,” concluded Johnson.
