If It’s From Change.org, I’ll Sign It: The Target Rape Factory

I’m planning to sign the new petition emailed to me from Change.org. It’s about a Target rape factory in Jordan. This news about Target does not surprise me, because Target is a serious hater of gay rights, and Target also enjoys shipping American jobs overseas, so what do they care about a little rape overseas? I’ll explain the new petition a little later. Let me first say:

If it’s a petition from Change.org, I’ll sign it. I will never question what the petition says or who is behind the petition, because, as I’ve said, if Change.org is behind it, I too will back it with my full moral support and complete signing power.

Ever since Change.org launched their petition to stop the Charles Manson star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, I’ve been a fan of the do-good organization. They tirelessly hound to death the most nefarious activities and policies carried out by the most likely, or unlikely, of entities. Like the Walk of Fame people. Who would’ve thought they’d give old Charlie a star? Not on Change.org’s watch!

So what about that Target rape factory in Jordan? I would love to spit that question into a microphone that would blast my voice through a PA system that could fill an entire auditorium. Tell me about that Target rape factory? According to Change.org:

Please tell Wal-Mart, Hanes, Target, Macy’s, Lands’ End, Kohl’s and Jones Group to immediately end the sexual abuse, rape, torture, and beatings of young women guest workers at the Classic factory in Jordan.
We demand that the companies:
1)  Immediately remove all serial rapists, especially Anil Santha and Priyantha, from the Classic factory;
2)  Pay significant compensation to the rape victims for the damages done them;
3)  Ensure that independent and highly respected non-governmental women’s rights organizations from Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have complete access to monitor factory conditions;
4)  Guarantee that there will be no retaliation against any worker for speaking the truth about factory conditions;
5)  Ensure that the false charges against the internationally respected human rights advocate, Mr. Rafiq Alam, must be immediately dropped;
6)  If Classic refuses to strictly enforce the worker’s rights laws in the U.S.-Jordan Free Trade Agreement, their sweatshop garments should be prohibited from entering the U.S.

I doubt this petition is going to get very far in the way of change, because these people are fighting against corporate soullessness. And America loves corporate soullessness — it makes them feel better about their own lack of empathy or soulfulness. That’s why Target and Wal-Mart and Macy’s are such popular places for American shoppers.

Oh yeah, and those stores sell things for cheap. And if it’s cheap enough, that means a little rape and sodomy in Jordan is well worth the price for most Americans.
