Montana’s Trans Lawmaker Tries Intimidating Target

Montana State Rep. Zooey Zephyr (D-Missoula) has been on a streak of controversy and advocacy for the left this year.

She was first banned by the Montana State House floor back in April for her attempts to bully and intimidate other members of the House with her rhetoric. While banned from attending sessions or speaking her opinions on the matter, she is instead voting from the privacy of her residence. With all this downtime, she visited “The View” on June 1st to be used as a pride month puppet.

Shortly after she arrived and made the usually scripted giggles, co-host Sara Haines asked Zephyr about Target moving their pride month celebratory clothing further back from the entrance. Occurring primarily in strong southern, conservative stores, it nonetheless outraged many in the LGTBQ community.

“If you’re a corporation, and you’re seeing a sliver of what it’s like for LGBTQ people who can’t decide to take our identities off the shelf, it’s why it’s more important now than ever to make sure you’re standing up alongside us throughout this.”

While her remarks here directly imply that Target needs to get in lock step with the LGBTQ mission, it’s only the tip of the iceberg. She also tried implying that the store was refusing to support them and that legislation with gender care for kids back in MT was in the same boat.

Her comments landed great with the liberal hens on the show. “But what we see in moments like this, the people who support anti-trans legislation and anti-LGBTQ+ legislation aren’t just after that. They don’t want to see LGBTQ+ people thriving in our stores, in our communities, and will get very angry at the sight of us on a Sports Illustrated issue.”

She just doesn’t get it. Most of America isn’t against the LGBTQ community. We simply don’t want it forced on us. Much like you won’t find strong conservative shirts on the shelves, you shouldn’t find LGTBQ shirts in your face as you walk into the store to get milk and batteries. It really is that simple.
