It’s the latest right-wing crusade against Target‘s new policy, which allow trans customers and staff to use the bathroom that aligns with their gender identity.
Faith2Action is a self-described “pro-active launching pad for the pro-family movement, and they’re organizing “Don’t Target Our Daughters Day” on June 4th, which Huffington Post reports is four days prior to the company’s shareholders meeting.

According to their website, Faith2Action want the protests (which will take place outside stores) to be a “moment to stand together” and spread the word that the retail chain’s policy allows “predators and sex offenders” into women’s restrooms and fitting rooms.

President and founder Janet Porter wrote in Barbwire that it’s “time to take action” against Target, and, as far as the protest goes, now is the “time to take it to another level.”

In a Barbwire post, Janet Porter, Faith2Action’s president and founder, said it was “time to take action” against Target.

“It’s time to tell Target to stop ‘Targeting our Daughters’—from the sidewalk outside their stores.”

In order to spread the word about “Don’t Target Our Daughters Day,” the group has created a seriously strange music video, splicing various news segments about Target along with clumsy footage of a girl being attacked in her bathroom stall.

To promote “Don’t Target Our Daughters Day,” the group has produced a bizarre music video that compiles news reports of the Target controversy and, in one scene, depicts a young girl being attacked in a bathroom stall.

Choice lyric: “No matter how loud it’s shouted / sin is not a civil right / Calling evil good / will never make it right.”
