(Republican Insider) – Corporate America has seemingly forgotten their place. They exist at the mercy of consumers yet they behave as though their agendas and viewpoints should be of paramount concern to Americans.
A conglomerate of more than 1,000 companies standing in opposition of election integrity has formed in response to Georgia’s latest election reform legislation, signed into law by Governor Brian Kemp.
Naturally, these leftist companies argue that the Peach state tightening up voter ID laws is “racist” and “wrong.” They feign moral obligation in the name of “equality” in their condemnation of the laws meant to ensure our elections are free from fraud and corruption.
Keep in mind, not a single corporate CEO has been elected to his or her post. That isn’t stopping them, however, from injecting their indignation into government affairs meant to be handled by elected representatives of the American people.
Corporate America is attempting to turn the US into some kind of corporate oligarchy against the consent of the American people.
Major companies like Coca-Cola, Delta and the MLB have encouraged over 1,000 other companies to join them in their efforts to shame and punish Georgia over their efforts to secure elections.
It’s truly remarkable.
The Civic Alliance, that self-describes as a “nonpartisan group of businesses working together to build a future where everyone participates in shaping our country,” boasts on their website that its membership is now up to 1,119 companies.
These 1,119 supposedly “nonpartisan” companies employee more than 5 million people and reach many more million US consumers. They believe that they ought to determine how the US is run, not American voters.
“As a coalition of businesses, we use our voice, our brand, and our reach to strengthen our democracy. We support safe, accessible, and trusted elections, and we inspire our employees and customers to participate in civic life,” the Alliance states.
Ironically, they use the terms “safe” and “trusted” along with “accessible” to describe how they would like US elections to be. What they really want is for anyone residing in the country, regardless of immigration status, to be able to vote in our elections.
Illegal aliens are, after all, the only group in the US who face barriers in obtaining government issued photo ID.
The Civic Alliance issued a strongly-worded letter of condemnation last Friday in regards to Georgia’s efforts to “restrict” ballot access. The letter was signed by 200 companies including Salesforce, ViacomCBS and The Estée Lauder Companies.
“Companies have their fingers on the pulse of what’s going on with their consumers and employees, and this is a priority for folks and so companies are making it a priority for themselves,” said Mike Ward, co-founder of the Civic Alliance.
The letter said in part, “We stand in solidarity with voters – and with the Black executives and leaders at the helm of this movement – in our nonpartisan commitment to equality and democracy.”
The letter indignantly states that there are “hundreds of bills threatening to make voting more difficult in dozens of states nationwide.”
More difficult for who? Certainly not American citizens.
Other members of the Alliance include Amazon, Verizon, McDonalds, Microsoft, PayPal, Uber, Airbnb, Best Buy, Capital One, Dow, Hewlett Packard, Macy’s, Starbucks, United Airlines, Under Armor and Pepsico.
Notice how many of these woke companies individuals without ID can’t even do business with. Is Capital One going to start giving credit cards and loans to people without ID? Are United and Delta going to do away with ID verification for passengers? What about Uber? Are they going to start allowing drivers who cannot furnish proper drivers licenses?
We could go on and on, the hypocrisy is truly never-ending.
Go woke, go broke. Check out the full list of companies participating in the opposition to secure elections in the US and decide for yourself if it’s worth it to continue supporting these delusional, power-hungry corporations.
