Peter LaBarbera Apes HRC’s Battle Plan

Recall that HRC tried to blackmail Target, a corporation which, even the left-of-center group acknowledges, treats its gay employees with dignity, to “donate to pro-gay rights candidates in order to balance its contribution to a group backing Minnesota Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer, an ardent opponent of gay marriage.

Well, now I learn via Eva Young of Lloydletta’s Nooz, that anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera, has decided to pull a page from HRC’s book and is asking Ann Coulter to donate her GOProud speaking fee to “Pro-Family Groups”.

If Ann doesn’t ignore LaBarbera (as we believe she should) perhaps a riposte similar to that she offered Joseph Farah.

What’s Really Behind Target Boycott?

Over at Powerline, John Hinderaker looks into the campaign against Target and concludes that it’s not just about its support of a PAC which backed a candidate who opposes gay marriage, but about preventing corporations from supporting right-of-center candidates opposing government regulation:

What is happening here is that the left is trying to bully companies into forgoing their constitutional right to advocate for their interests, as labor unions and countless non-profits do. Leftists are making an example of Target in hopes of intimidating other companies who fear the effects of higher taxes and mindless government regulation.

Read the whole thing.

This analysis corresponds with some of the conversations I have had with some of those who advocate a boycott of Target. ¬†In short, they’re just using the gay issue as a wedge against corporate donations. ¬†Wonder if they get this incensed about unions backing candidates.

If these guys had any integrity, they’d be going after the major backer of Jerry Brown’s gubernatorial campaign, a supposedly “grassroots” outfit funded primarily by unions.
