Our Corporate Masters? by Derek Hunter for Town Hall
The efficiency with which the left can open a book to the same page and read along together in unison is amazing, a testament to the hive mind progressives share. Whatever the cause, no matter the issue, the amen chorus can always be counted on to be at the ready with whatever narrative-enforcing talking points they’ve been provided with. It’s part of the reason they succeed so often. Now that it has infected left-wing corporate America, it will hopefully be their downfall.
“More than 120 CEOs, top executives and other corporate leaders gathered virtually over the weekend to discuss how they would exert corporate pressure to influence voting legislation,” reported the New York Post Monday.
“Woke” CEOs and wealthy liberals gathered together to consolidate their power against states interested in protecting the integrity of the vote. That’s not how it’s framed by the media, but that’s how it really is. Democrats always insist the right to vote is sacrosanct, which makes it odd that even minimal measures to ensure the integrity of the vote is protected are denounced as “Jim Crow 2.0!” If they believe it’s as important as they say, why shouldn’t it be protected?
They don’t have a good answer because there isn’t one.
On the call were the CEOs of United, Delta, and American Airlines, Levi Strauss, LinkedIn, various investment firms, Walmart, and General Motors. Then there was James Murdoch and wife Kathryn Murdoch. If that last name sounds familiar it’s because James Murdoch is the son of Rupert Murdoch, the guy who owns Fox News.
What does a guy whose major accomplishment in life is to have been born to a wealthy businessman have to do with corporate CEOs and state voting laws? Nothing. They’re activists, left-wing activists who likely despise everything you care about. They have more money than they know what to do with, thanks to Fox News and Rupert’s other companies, which frees them up to be professional virtue-signalers.
