Target CEO Faces Pay Cut as Business Drops

The phrase “you reap what you sow” seems to be holding true for Target. The company planted an impractical and radical seed last year when they introduced their transgender bathroom policy, which allows persons of either gender to use the restroom of his or her choice. Now, Target is facing a decline in sales and a falling stock price, while their CEO, Brian Cornell, is facing a pay cut.

Until recently, Cornell seemed to be on-board with the bathroom decision, but as the store’s thriving retail business has diminished and drawn more negative attention, his attitude has shifted. According to Breitbart:

“Target’s CEO was reported as having opposed his own company’s transgender announcement, saying it “frustrated” him that his diversity department made such a fuss over the decision and that they didn’t clear the announcement with him first.”

After the bathroom policy announcement that put customers behind a radical social agenda, many conservative organizations decided to take action. Millions have joined the efforts like AFA’s #BoycottTarget petition and our #AnywhereButTARGET campaign, and these actions have clearly made an impact. Not only is Target cutting the pay of their CEO, but over the last several weeks, we have seen Target executives step down or be fired. You can still sign the pledge today to let Target know that you will take your business somewhere that puts customers first and a social agenda last!

    Recently overheard and leaked to the public was a
    conversation between Brian Cornell, CEO of target and Casey Carl, Target’s
    Chief of Innovation.

    Here is the actual transcript:

    >>”Sir, Casey Carl is on line 2.

    Thank you.

    Good morning, this is Brian Cornell. Oh hello, Casey. What?
    You’re resigning? Why? Well yes, I know our social experiment was a spectacular
    failure, we’ve been losing business for a year since we launched the bathroom
    experiment. Yes I know about the petition by the American Family Association and
    the blogs by the Family Research Council and I’ve seen women leave our stores
    in droves. Yes, I am aware of the crime scene all our stores have become since
    we started the social experiment. There have been scores of women attacked in
    our restrooms, but for some reason, the police don’t seem to care, and despite
    all these attacks and the plummeting of our sales, I am NOT changing anything
    and the social experiment will continue. After all, I’m the CEO and I make all
    the critical business decisions for Target, I know good business policy when I
    see it, and this is a GOOD business policy! No, I don’t care if the bathroom
    experiment was a failure putting us on the brink of bankruptcy, I think it is a
    GOOD business decision and I’m not changing it. Any good businessman worth his
    salt would CLEARLY see that if an experiment to improve sales was a spectacular
    failure, the logical course of action is to keep on doing the failed
    experiment! So I’m not changing our radical social agenda, after all, it’s more
    important to push my social agenda forward than it is to make a profit and keep
    our loyal customers safe. You know, Casey, this is only good business practice…to
    ignore all complaints and profit losses and keep pushing the agenda. Why? I
    have my reasons. Well, I’m sorry to lose you. I was hoping you could help me
    with my next experiment…I just got a great deal for bottled water from Flint
    Michigan, and Chinese made toys made with lead paint and cadmium. We can’t
    lose!<<”

    How interesting that Sears Holdings (SHLD) which includes
    the Sears and Kmart brands, announced plans to close 150 stores last month, and
    Macy's (M) is closing 68 stores and cutting 10,000 jobs. JC Penny is closing
    150 stores.

    By contrast, Amazon (AMZN, TECH30) expects to hire 100,000
    U.S. workers this year as it continues to expand.

    In conclusion, the so-called “boycott” isn’t the cause of target’s
    stock issues as the whole retail market is taking a hit from the growth of
    online sales. But nice way to take credit for nothing, FRC. The boycott’s “effect”
    on target sales is a lie and there was not one single assault in any bathroom
    in any Target store. Not one.

      Very amusing!
      I quit shopping at Target after the anti- 2nd Amendment stuff started. However, I’m not thrilled with the fact that I really only have Walmart and Amazon to shop at now; they certainly aren’t much further right than Target, but thank God they are better than JC Penney’s! Funny, you’d think retailers would have learned by now, internet sales were going to drastically reduce “brick and mortar” stores, and Penney’s was a fine example of what NOT to do! I guess the old saying is true, we only learn from painful mistakes!

    • Richard Scott

      You are full of it, 1.5 million will not shop at target

      • glenbo

        >>”You are full of it”<<
        Full of it? You mean Macy's and JC Penny are NOT closing stores?

        • Richard Scott

          They can work some where else, if they ask GOD to give a job that don’t let men in the women’s restroom

          • glenbo

            >>”They can work some where else”<<
            Such a despicably selfish and heartless attitude.
            How UN-Christian like.

          • Richard Scott

            I am tired of your crap, any store that will let men in the women’s restroom needs to close, I’m sorry about the good people that work there, I would not work for a place that lets men in the women’s restroom, I would find another job and GOD would help me find one

          • glenbo

            >>”I’m sorry about the good people that work there”<<
            Wrong answer:
            "I don't give a crap about the people who work there" is the correct answer.
            Selfishly despicable.

          • Richard Scott

            Anyone that works at a place like target needs to find a job that cares about women, not perverts

  • libsrtheh8ters

    Caving to the whims of the far left & the various useful idiots they use to advance their fascism usually works well since the leftist propaganda spewing media shames, blames & destroys all who oppose them. Just goes to show you that when normal people get involved the left’s radicalism can be stopped.

  • Jim Strong

    Pay cut ? He should have bee fired.

  • Richard Scott

    Boycott is working, let’s keep it up

    • glenbo

      >>”Boycott is working”<<
      It's also working on Sears, Kmart, Macy's and J.C. Penny as their stores are closing by the hundreds.

      • Ron Green

        All for different reasons.

        • glenbo

          >>”All for different reasons.”<<
          What are those reason?

          • Ron Green

            Most of these stores don’t get with the times. low inventory leveld, etc.

      • Richard Scott

        No, they are not losing as much business as target, 1.5 million is boycotting because they let men in the women’s restroom

        • glenbo

          >>”No, they are not losing as much business as target,”<<
          Interesting. How many stores is Target closing?

          • Marty ” Deplorable” McFly

            Amazon is killing Sears, Kmart, Macy’s and JCP. Amazon does not have to pay a premium for dying mall space.

          • glenbo

            >>”Amazon is killing Sears, Kmart, Macy’s and JCP”<<
            And Target. You left that one out.
            "Years of declining sales" is their problem. Not anti-LGBT bigots.

          • Marty ” Deplorable” McFly

            I hate to burst your bubble, but yeah, Excess overhead and costs of retail space is killing Sears, Kmart, Macy’s and JCP. TarGay is suffering from the same symptoms to a degree but it has a self inflicted (tranny bathrooms) wound that will fester and go gangrene at some point.
            Amazon is the true retail serial killer. Its market capitalization is 5X of everyone we mention including BestBuy. Let that sink in for a moment. Now add in the fact that Amazon was just awarded a patent for custom clothes on demand and…….. C-Ya traditional retail.

          • glenbo

            >>”TarGay is suffering from…. a self inflicted (tranny bathrooms) wound”<<

            "Tranny?" You are a bigot.
            Why would any business keep in place a policy that has obvious detrimental effects on the profits? It would be irrational.

          • Marty ” Deplorable” McFly

            Damn right I am a bigot, Trannys are mentally ill and need professional help, not free reign to use any bathroom for the one of the two genders they are identifying with that day. As for why, You should ask the Executive suite at TarGay why they have a policy that is obviously detrimental to their bottom line, maybe they though they could get away with it? You should ask them. I would still shop their if they where not such SJW cucks.

          • glenbo

            >>”Trannys are mentally ill”<>”You should ask the Executive suite at TarGay why they have a policy that is obviously detrimental to their bottom line”<>”maybe they though they could get away with it?”<<
            Get away with exactly what?

          • Marty ” Deplorable” McFly

            >>>Mental illness is a disability. Disabilities are protected by the constitution. Therefore, by YOUR assertion, trans people are a protected class.<<<>>Get away with exactly what? <<<
            Normalizing mental disease??? Why else would a large successful corporation suddenly decide to ostracize the a very large portion of its customers? The C- Suite is beholden to the GayStopo and as such, thought that it would not pay a price for angering its largest customer base. TarGay's market capitalization is down billions, that is not just Amazon, that is the deifying silence of We the People letting the BoD and stockholders that, that the current SJW directions is not a profitable one. The onus is on them to figure it out, It is real simple, recende the SJW policy and possibly return to profitability.

            MAGA!

            >>”Gender Dysphoria is a mental illness, and should be treated as such.”<<
            Since you categorize gender dysphoria as a mental illness, under the ADA guidelines, transgenders, being mentally disordered are to be considered as a protected class as mental disorders are classified as disabilities. Therefore, you cannot discriminate against transgenders because they fall under the category of being a protected class by virtue of their mental disability. And since they belong to a protected class, you cannot discriminate against them by denying them access to bathrooms.
            You didn't answer my question:
            What sense would it make for a business to keep in place a policy that causes them to lose profits?

          • Marty ” Deplorable” McFly

            I did answer your question, ask the c-suite at Targay, they came up and implemented the policy. I have no access to the inner workings or corp culture at TarGay. I am not sorry that you are unwilling to accept my answer. Its all on you.

            PLUS, I can discriminate against anyone I want, whenever I want. No Trannys allowed in my house, car, vacation home. I will not hire them or employ them. SO there's that.

          • glenbo

            >>”Mentally ill Tranny’s where NEVER denied the use of bathroom, “<>”ask the c-suite at Targay”<<

            It's ok to admit you have no clue. If you don't know, you are in no position to presume to know why Target or any retailer has suffered recently.
            I happen to know that online sales have cause MANY other retailers to close MANY of their stores.

            You WANT to treat trans people like their "mentally ill" but you don't want them to have any rights.
            You WANT to punish target because you are a bigot, but you don't want to accept the truth about their alleged decline in sales.

            You are disingenuous with your hate-filled opinions. The only thing genuine about you is your bigotry.

          • Marty ” Deplorable” McFly

            Oh Genboi- >>> “It’s ok to admit you have no clue. If you don’t know, you are in no position to presume to know why Target or any retailer has suffered recently.

            I happen to know that online sales have cause MANY other retailers to close MANY of their stores.”<<<<>>>You have no idea of the Pandora’s box you just opened up for yourself by admitting transgenders are a protected class. Not only does it indeed include using the restroom of thier choice, it also includes not being allowed to discriminate against them to rent any vacation home including yours if you publically advertise it for rent, and your place of business you cannot fire them or deny hiring them. By placing them in a protected class. Your abject bigotry does not supersede anti-discrimination law and works in direct conflict with your bigotry.<<<>>> You WANT to treat trans people like their “mentally ill” but you don’t want them to have any rights.<<<>>>You WANT to punish target because you are a bigot, but you don’t want to accept the truth about their alleged decline in sales.<<<<
            I am a bigot, but then again, you are also. You are definitely bigoted against me. The problem for you is, I don't care what you think of me.

            As for TarGay, I do not care one way or the other what TarGay does. I do feel bad for the employees that will be losing their job because some fluffers thought it be a good idea to piss off a huge part of their customer base. They are the true victims here, not some tranny that is ill and needs help. I do not shop at TarGay, since the publicly came out as anti 2A, and they do not have anything that I want or need that I cannot get closer to my house.

            Embrace the Suck, and get help for your gender dysphoria… because if my son or daughter catches you being a perv in any bathroom they are in, I am confident that it will not end well for you. I also know that I am not the only parent that has this attitude.

            Thanks for a great conversation.
            It has been quite revealing.

          • Marty ” Deplorable” McFly

            Oh yes it has. This is why I follow you, triggering you is fun. Here is the rub, I could care less if you want to marry another man, have gay sex behind closed doors or what ever. I do draw the line at entering into a fantasy realm with a mentally ill person, and we both agree trannys are mentally ill. Do them a favor and help them get help for their illness.

            MAGA

          • glenbo

            >>”we both agree trannys are mentally ill.”<<
            Incorrect. I know it isn't a mental illness, because I actually know several transgenders.

          • Marty ” Deplorable” McFly

            There is no fooling biology, you’re either male or female. While technically one can become the other.
            And there is this,
            In the new edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), released on May 22, the now-defunct diagnosis of gender identity disorder (GID) receives a new name, gender dysphoria.Jun 4, 2013.

            It is a mental illness.

            MAGA!

            How is he not? He admits it.
            If you don't like an African American (black person) only because he is "one of those people," you are a bigot.
            Look it up.

            True – target is hurting because of their “special interests.”
