The View and an ex-White House director of strategic communications under President Donald Trump, slammed the boycotts during a CNN roundtable Wednesday after the retail chain Target announced it was pulling some Pride-themed products from shelves following numerous threats to store employees.Griffin, a frequent critic of the former president, said she believed the shift stems from the rapidly evolving conversation around marriage equality after a 2015 Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide, leading to a rapidly changing environment for those not accustomed to LGBTQ+ equality.However, that has resulted in a backlash from those who are unfamiliar with the trans community, she said, leading to fear-mongering and a culture of threats that run counter to the conservative ideal of personal freedom."There needs to be a reminder of what personal freedom entails," she said. "This is where I get frustrated with my friends on the right.
You can personally have whatever view you want to in your home about the 'LGBTQ agenda,' about gender, about sexuality, and you have the right to raise your children that way.
You have a right to not buy things at Target. You do not have the right to tell other kids you can't read this book or they can't talk about their gay friends or they can't buy this shirt at Target."That's not a conservative position.
