Tim Wildmon
Hate group leader Tim Wildmon of American Family Association

Lying seems to be permissible if it suits your self-righteous religious purpose. At least that seems to be the acceptable use policy at hate group American Family Association. Monday, when Walker Wildmon claimed that an incident at a Target store had something to do with Target’s transgender accommodation policies (it did not), the confusion was due to the fact that young Walker is a very dim bulb.

Hate group leader Tim Wildmon is no genius either. Tuesday, he repeats the same story with embellishments in an email to supporters. He is also confused but an accomplished prevaricator as well. I have enumerated the lies. Emphasis per original:

Target’s dangerous policy of allowing men into women’s dressing rooms has claimed another innocent victim of sexual voyeurism.

According to NBC10 News, a 36-year-old man secretly filmed women trying on clothes in the dressing room of a New Jersey Target store. The news report stated that as many as 100 victims could have been spied on.

  1. Wildmon knows perfectly well that the individual who was arrested is not transgender and did not gain access to a women’s fitting room by claiming to be transgender.
  2. Wildmon knows perfectly well that this has nothing to do with Target’s gender policy. 
  3. Wildmon implies that those incidents were all at Target stores. It is clear from the story that the alleged perpetrator has been doing this at numerous stores.

Target’s policy purposely places employees in a position of allowing men
to enter a dressing room when they know very well that innocent women
are at risk.

  1. That is a lie. That is not Target’s policy. 

In effect, Target employees who work in clothing departments (most
often women) are to turn a blind eye and allow potentially illegal
activity to occur in their very presence without raising any objection
to stop it.

  1. That is a lie. That is not Target’s policy.

As long as Target continues to allow men free and unrestricted access
into women’s dressing rooms and restrooms, these sexual violations
against women and little girls will continue to occur.

  1. That is a lie. Target’s policy allows entry to transgender women. AFA has yet to document a case of any transgender person harming anyone in a Target store.

There are still women who are unfamiliar with Target’s dangerous
policy. Will you help spread the warning and let your family and friends
know about the Target boycott?

There is a plea for money in there as well. Meanwhile, this silly boycott has failed. It has had no material effect on Target’s revenues. Target is doing just fine; even better than expected. Time for Timmy to move along.
