Unless you’ve been living under a rock the last few years, you’ve undoubtedly been witnessing the hyper-politicization of corporate America. From Facebook to Coca-Cola to JP Morgan, nearly every large American company or corporation is going “woke” and bowing to the cancel culture mob. Corporations are willingly and, in some cases, enthusiastically becoming political arms of left-wing causes.
Take, for example, what happened in Florida just this week. The duly-elected Florida Legislature passed a law on age-appropriate gender and sexual education in schools that was, in turn, signed by the duly-elected governor of that state — only to have Disney, one of the largest companies in the country, attack the law before the ink was even dry. Disney didn’t stop there. In a widely-viewed online video, Disney executives said their parks will no longer refer to guests as “ladies and gentlemen” or “boys and girls” and the company is implementing a “not-at-all-secret gay agenda.” All the while, Disney keeps doing business with China and doesn’t say a word about the Uyghur genocide going on there.
Last year, it was Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines throwing a temper tantrum over a new election integrity law passed by the Georgia Legislature. Not to be outdone, Major League Baseball bowed to the cancel culture mob and moved the All-Star Game out of the state. Those companies (and leftist politicians all over the country) propagandized the law and misled the public to the point even the president earned “Four Pinocchios” from the Washington Post for his false claims about the law.
