Went to Target today and saw these awful bumper stickers ...

Posted by   + Show Post

"Obama sucks" and right underneath it another that read," Michelle Blows". Off to the right a third that said " Have a great day, shoot an illegal"  

It really made me gasp. I don't think I've ever seen something so vulgar and hateful advertised on someone's vehicle. Then I went into the store and as I was passing babies on my way to children's clothing, two young ladies, who I would guess were in their early 20s, stopped me and asked, how many months is a one year old. No shit, I couldn't make this up. What is up with people?

 I would so guess , by your response that you are a very young person....with a lack of class

Have a nice day.

The first one is kinda funny.  The second one is awful.

The baby clothes shoppers....they were probably hungover, childless friends of a new mom to be - and blondes.

Not really...your title says you went to target and saw these things. It's kind of off...I had to read it twice.


Quoting Moniker:

Yes, the part about the stickers being "on a vehicle" followed by " then I went into the store" should have been plain enough. 

Quoting Nighttiger:

I think she meant on a vehicle in the parking lot. At least, thats what I understood on the second read :)  If its in the store, Target has done a 180! :)

Quoting romalove:

 Where the heck do you shop in a Target that stocks such things???  I have a Target five minutes from my house and there are no such items to be had there.

Yes, I really think being mean and saying horrible things about anyone is terrible. 

Quoting incognito116:

Would you be as horrified if you saw a sticker like that about Palin, Romney or Bush?  Not.

You just skimmed too?

Quoting Ziva65:

Wow!  While I don't like Obama, that is really unacceptable. He's still the president, and this is a major chain store...I'm surprised at Target.


Oh- and do they just think that many of their shoppers can't read English? We have so many illegals here... I guess they'll just take there business to Walmart? Seems like a bad business choice all the way around. I guess anything for a buck? IDK.


As for the ladies :) well, either overwhelmed new moms, or our level of education has greatly declined :)


I think I'll go to Target for some entertainment :) Sounds interesting.

Yup- most of the time I don't read others' responses... :) (Not really interested.)

I didn't realize it was in the parking lot. I see that all the time on cars (to me, just shows their character and I pretty much ignore it.), I thought from the post they were sold in the store.

It takes a real special POS to advocate shooting people for fun. Sick.

 The bumper stickers were ON CARS, not AT Target! LOL. But it seemed that way at first until I read it a few times and it became clear. Target would never sell ANY political bumper stickers and not these for sure!

 So true. All three bumper stickers kinda makes me think it was a person with real mental problems. And they probably own guns and wishes they could shoot someone......people are getting nuttier every day. ....sigh.......

I think it's called freedom of speech!

personally I wouldn't risk having my car keyed by some unhinged Obama supporter.
