Poll: Most Americans Oppose Woke Corporations

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 4/16/2021 12:07:25 AM

An NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll released Thursday found that a majority of Americans oppose woke corporations influencing everyday life. The poll asked registered voters if they support or oppose American companies using their public role, position, or events to influence political, cultural, or social change. The findings show that over half (58 percent) oppose any type of corporation using its power to influence any type of political, cultural, or social change across the country. They also show that 35 percent did support the efforts by woke corporations, while seven percent were unsure how to answer. The survey also asked, specifically, whether the voter supports or opposes “professional sports teams

The problem is that that 35% of butt-hurt lie-berals are very loud and obnoxious and threatening. And, as the old saying goes, "the squeaky wheel gets the grease". By our nature, conservatives are polite. We were raised to say "please" and not threaten people who aren't threatening us. I really hate to feel this way, but I think it may be getting very close to the point that we are going to have to start getting down in the gutter as much as the lie-berals if we want to remind these woke corporations that there are many more of us out there!!!

So don't buy their products or services! This is the way to "explain" to these obnoxious racists and commies that we don't like their politics.

But they keep buying their crap, which makes their "opposition" meaningless.

The left does not care what Americans oppose. The left intends to use corporations to impose their agenda by compulsion. Americans will have to comply, or be denied access to goods and services. The left is active everywhere, including new efforts to take over the Boards of Directors of corporations, such as the current proxy fight to take over Exxon. We are being silenced by corporations denying access to youtube, twitter, and other corporate services. We have a police state. All your mail is easily read by Google, Microsoft, or Yahoo. The FBI can access anything with a national security letter that requires no warrant from a judge. Every American is being fingerprinted and mug shots taken to obtain professional licenses, drivers licenses, or most jobs. The virus has allowed the left to take over every aspect of the economy, and our lives. The devices we use allow the left to track us, and monitor every move we make. The new PPP loan giveaways were obtained by mostly from people working on their computers from home. This has taught the government that they can audit you from anywhere, including DC, merely by requiring you to upload all your receipts and invoices, and transmitting them to IRS headquarters. You cannot drive your car anywhere without the license plate being read all over town and being placed in a timestamped database. We have lost all our freedoms.

I'm with #2. Stop buying products or using their services. I read somewhere that Delta is starting to feel the pain of people booking with other airlines. Notice that loud mouth CEO of Delta is lying low. I am using other services to avoid as much as I can from COSTCO, WALMART, Amazon, Home Depot. Before, I would gladly use their company for my many purchases. Now, I avoid them like the plague. Can anyone point me in the direction to get a full list of this clowns. I want to make sure that I do not help them by buying their products.

#5, Has his finger on the pulse of the country right now. Frankly, I do not see it changing for the better anytime soon. We just do not have enough fighters who will confront this dangerous and reckless power grab by the democrats. If Republicans will not stand up now, when will they? The country is spiraling down the drain. We all know it because we watch the audacity of the left as they continue to consolidate their power over every aspect of our lives. We have out of control, looting and rioting with their blessing. We also have the worst humanitarian crisis and breach of our sovereignty in our history on our Southern border once again due to the enabling of democrats. Our economy is tanking because of their outrageous policies. Covid is kept going to insure our submission. So many other troubling policies are being enacted and Americans are left out to dry by an evil anti-American cabal and a cowardly Republican Party that is afraid of its shadow. Now we are witnessing the marriage of corporate America and our government and still no outcry by Republicans. We are being fast tracked to replicate communist China. Democrats are power mad totalitarians who will in a heartbeat be as oppressive as Xi Jinping. When government and corporations unite complete control of the population is the goal. Think it can’t happen here? Think again.

Woke-ism by a corporation lets them assert that I am a racist and they don't even know anything about me. True racism... making assumptions about an individual based on physical appearance. I'm not a racist, but woke corporations are racist.

Corporations and professional sports were two areas that liberals had not been able to penetrate mainly due to the fact that it was not in their best interests to follow liberal doctrine. It still isn’t. Suddenly they’ve decided to capitulate to the Party of 28% corporate tax rates, make huge donations to Marxist domestic terrorists, and take advice from Stacey Abrams. Maybe they need to watch some Trump rally videos. These folks are not being persuaded that election integrity laws are racist and evil. Abrams threw her own race under the bus and lost them $100 million in revenue. MLB fell on their face and lost a huge majority of fans. And no one wants to take a commercial flight when the pilots are affirmative action trainees. There is no magic to being a CEO. They’re just as tone deaf and stupid as anyone else. They need to rethink this one.

#9, I think care needs to be taken in talking about Home Depot. They have not jumped onto the bandwagon that these other corporations have but do have a company statement. I think it is a fair one. Yesterday, I read a headline that Brett Favre wants to just watch football without the politics. That is how I am feeling about companies and corporations. Just sell your service or product and leave politics out of it. I am buying your service or product not your political stances.

You don’t have to boycott all of them. Target one or two of them and hurt them bad. This sets an example and the message will get out that we mean business. For now Coke, MLB and Delta should be our targets. Don’t buy or use their products. They need to learn their job is to make and sell a quality product an nothing more. Do your job and shut up.

There have been varying degrees of support for the fiction of "voter repression". Home Depot just made some vague statement about how all 'eligible' voters should have access to vote, and Delta and Coca Cola, among others, declined to sign the 'big letter' - choosing instead to say they support eligible voters, but avoiding statements about the Georgia law. Maybe they took the advice given them, and " the damn law...", or maybe they are feeling the pushback and pulling back a little. The latter, I think.

If no ID is required to vote, then no ID should be required to buy beer, guns, airline tickets, prescription medicine, get loans, withdraw money from checking accounts, or anything else. Don't those things ''suppress'' minorities too? I'd like to see some brave politician say those things on the floor of the House/Senate, but is there anyone brave enough?

#12 is right. Democrats have effectively used Alinsky’s RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Conservatives should do the same. Coke should be the primary target. Hit everyone of their produces,. MLB can done easily as a second target. Effective boycotts of these two businesses will wake up other woke companies. Coke products: Coca-Cola, Sprite, Fanta, Barq’s, Schweppes, Powerade, Dasani, Minute Maid, Gold Peak Tea

A better word for woke corporations is "scared." Their woke blubbering is an attempt to placate blacks and somehow avoid the damage they can do and do. They are not the biggest spenders in the world either and are accomplished shoplifters and dine and dashers. However, this push for "flexible" voting is not a black thing, it's a democrat thing. Nobody wants to go through another election like 2020 where the real winner is sent home and the doddering old fool who campaigned from his basement can cheat enough to "win." Everybody is suffering from that cheating and the resulting lawlessness is destroying the country. These corporations acted stupidly and are now losing millions of customers and dollars. That coke CEO looks like he needed a laxative three days ago. They will be on the boycott list for years just as the NFL has been. I finally broke my addiction to WalMart yesterday and plan to sit back and watch them crumble. It will be worth paying higher prices elsewhere to uphold my principles.

Liberals tend to live in this imaginary utopian fantasy world taught to them by "educators" that would be reality if only the conservatives were not in the way. When/if they were fully in charge we would be exactly like Communist China, Soviet Union or Venezuela and, unless they were the rich elite, would wonder why they were locked up or disappear for saying the wrong thing. You know, the boiled frog story. This will probably happen if the Media succeeds with their lies.

Conservatives fail to grasp what Leftists/Democrats (BIRM) know in their bones: WORDS SPEAK LOUDER THAN ACTIONS. A multinational corporation feels little pain when a cohort of a cohort (the proportion of conservatives who will actually bother to boycott over anti-conservative political interference) does not purchase its product. And to the extent it does feel pain, it's easy to attribute it to non-political factors (the WuFlu is an all-purpose excuse for poor financial performance). OTOH a bunch of screaming in public alarms them; they can hear it, it cannot be attributed to the WuFlu, and it just might cause others to actually do things that will hurt the corporation. You want to alter Delta/United/MLB's behavior? Write and send letters to the CEO. Remind Coca-Cola that latte liberals don't drink sugary carbonated water, but conservatives do. Remind Delta and United that Frontier and Southwest are already eating a lot of their lunch, and we are still hungry. Post signs denouncing corporations that undermine fair, secure elections. Write your congresscritters demanding hearings about election interference by multinational corporations. BE HEARD. And have a Coke. Nothing refreshes like a good icy Cola while its CEO grovels in apology for offending Middle America.

Oh, and write your financial fund managers (heck, write those you don't patronize; they never check) demanding they divest from corporations that threaten your financial security by inviting boycotts due to their interference with politics. You divesting from Home Depot won't matter. CALPERS divesting from Home Depot will. Merill-Lynch calling Home Depot and telling them to knock it off before they unload HD and buy Lowe's will.

Rather than asking fund managers to divest, ask the fund managers to vote against those directors who support the wokeness. We need to identify the directors and start putting the heat on them for tolerating this behavior.

Again, only 58%? Do the other 42% thinks it's just fine that a private company pokes it's nose into politics? These companies exist I assume to make a profit. If alienating 58% of your possible customer base is a good business model, then perhaps these CEO'S's would like to buy a bridge in Brooklyn, or some ocean front property in Kansas.

The Biden Administration announced on Tuesday that it was temporarily waiving EPA restrictions on the sale of the “winter-time” gasoline formulation in major metropolitan areas of three states, and the District of Columbia, as part of an effort to add to the available inventories that can be used to address the gas shortage. The states are Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Maryland, along with DC. Normally, each April and May, the EPA requires gasoline manufacturers to begin delivering different formulations of gasoline in certain metropolitan areas because the “summertime” formulation produces fewer emissions from automobile engines. When that change happens, refiners and distributors are sometimes left with excess

The Consumer Price Index (CPI), which tracks the cost of a variety of consumer goods as well as housing and energy prices, has risen 4.2 percent from a year ago, notably higher than the estimated 3.6 percent. It is the largest yearly increase since September 2008. Even controlling for food and energy prices, the CPI was up three percent, higher than the estimated 2.3 percent. The 0.9 percent CPI increase from March, again controlling for food and energy prices, is the highest since April 1982. This data comports with Americans’ everyday experiences. On Tuesday, the average price of a gallon of gas rose to $2.99, the highest figure since November 2014.

You have to love liberal media. President Donald Trump is no longer in office, but he’s still living rent free in their heads. They’re still completely obsessed with him and basically can’t live without him. They always need him as a focal point. The New York Times ran this “gotcha” story today, as though it were something truly significant, “Over 100 Republicans, including former officials, threaten to split from G.O.P.” What is the issue, the New York Times says?

According to a new poll from the Pew Research Center, while the majority of Jews identify as Democrat, three out of four Orthodox Jews identify as Republican. Overall, three out of four Orthodox Jews experienced at least some form of antisemitism in the past year, more than non-religious Jews. The Pew poll “surveyed 4,718 U.S. adults who identify as Jewish, including 3,836 Jews by religion and 882 Jews of no religion. The survey was administered online and by mail by Westat, from Nov. 19, 2019, to June 3, 2020.” Compared with older Jews, young Jews are increasingly becoming more Orthodox.

Congress passed the $2.2 trillion Heroes Act. House Democrats said it gives money to “governments who desperately need funds.” But it also gives lots of money to people who don’t need funds. Maryland, which even The Washington Post admits is “flush with cash,” got enough extra money to pass a budget that “hands bonuses to every state worker.” Even Atherton, California, where the median home price is $6 million, got Heroes Act money. “There was no means test!” complains Lisa Conyers, author of Welfare for the Rich, in my latest video. Omni Hotels & Resorts received $68 million in loans. Major airlines got $25 billion in loans from the CARES Act.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed a bill Tuesday which will remove the word "permanent" from the state's permanent early voting list (PEVL), a method that was heavily used by voters in the 2020 election. He signed the controversial bill, SB 1485, less than an hour after the Arizona Senate passed it 16-14, along party lines. It also comes as auditors are at work inspecting Maricopa County's 2.1 million 2020 ballots under a Senate-ordered audit. Arizona joins other Republican-led states that have introduced, passed and signed into law restrictive voting legislation. There are 361 bills in 47 states that introduce restrictive provisions.

WASHINGTON — Gas prices are rising. Auto prices are soaring. Consumer goods companies are charging more for household basics like toilet paper, peanut butter and soft drinks. All of which is resurrecting fears of an economic threat that has all but disappeared over the past generation: Runaway inflation. It occurs when prices for most goods and services not only rise but accelerate, making the cost of living steadily more expensive and shrinking the purchasing power of Americans' earnings and savings. Growing jitters about inflation have contributed to a sharp sell-off in stock prices this week. Any significant acceleration of inflation would exert a drag on the market and potentially imperil
To Fight Racism, Should White Children Be

Years ago, I attended a play with the theme of racism. At curtain rise, two actors began berating the audience primarily made up of white people about how this work would make them uncomfortable, uneasy, and fearful. It is a very common theme in “antiracism” and critical race theory. But if part of “doing the work” to “dismantle systemic racism” is to endure this discomfort, how does that apply to teaching “antiracism” to small children? Should young white kids be made to feel uncomfortable? Examples abound in CRT theory and popular writing about how overcoming white fragility requires of white people that they sit with their guilt, shame, and unease.

Americans’ views about school curriculum based on critical theories of race and gender were assessed in a mid-April poll by Competitive Edge Research and Communications (CE). The poll, which surveyed 808 active voters and included parents with children in school and other community members, found that an overwhelming majority of those surveyed object to critical race theories being taught in schools. The CE poll uses blunt language in questions about what critical theories, like critical race theory, actually assume and teach. It is rare to see questions formed using the fundamental theses of the critical theory-based curriculum in the public debate. Critical theories are teaching children to make assumptions about others

House Republicans planted themselves firmly in the camp of Donald Trump on Wednesday when they removed Rep. Liz Cheney from their leadership team after her criticism of the former president. In a closed-door meeting in the basement of the Capitol, Republicans voted to oust Cheney after she repeatedly called out Trump's false claims he won the election and criticized his role in the January 6 insurrection. After a voice vote, Cheney said: ‘I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again, is anywhere near the Oval Office.’ Cheney had addressed Republicans in the room before the vote.

It was said during our Mideast military adventures, and has been considered a truism of war, that you can’t really win a conflict without “boots on the ground.” For it’s difficult to completely subdue a people from afar. It may not be too different with battles for civilization. (snip) If you heard about a Third World country in which the leadership was purging the military of political opponents, would you assume it was just an exercise in ideological nepotism? (snip) So you need a purge. You do this by conjuring up a boogeyman — in our case “white supremacy”

You have to love liberal media. President Donald Trump is no longer in office, but he’s still living rent free in their heads. They’re still completely obsessed with him and basically can’t live without him. They always need him as a focal point. The New York Times ran this “gotcha” story today, as though it were something truly significant, “Over 100 Republicans, including former officials, threaten to split from G.O.P.” What is the issue, the New York Times says? The fact that the GOP still is supportive of Trump. “This is a first step,” said Miles Taylor,

The Democratic party that represents it wants to cancel the rights of anyone who disagrees with them.Showing that fascism is all in the family, Chelsea Clinton has joined the calls for social media censorship. After all, it’s been a standard feature of her mother’s bitter Twitter diatribes since she was rejected by voters in the 2016 election. The heir to the Clinton political dynasty joined the team effort to save Joe Biden from an early humiliation by steamrolling any opposition to his stated goal of vaccinating 70 percent of the U.S. by July 4th.

The head of the Vatican’s doctrine office is warning U.S. bishops to deliberate carefully and minimize divisions before proceeding with a possible plan to rebuke Roman Catholic politicians such as President Joe Biden for receiving Communion even though they support abortion rights. The strong words of caution came in a letter from Cardinal Luis Ladaria, prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, addressed to Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. The USCCB will convene for a national meeting June 16, with plans to vote on drafting a document on the Communion issue.

Another all-American brand, Anheuser-Busch, has jumped on the woke train. The maker of Budweiser, among other brands with a robust craft beer collaboration line, has partnered with radical professors in education and humanities at Arizona State University (ASU) to develop and implement a 15-module training program called “To Be Welcoming.” It is based on critical race and gender theory. According to a whistleblower who spoke with PJ Media, an e-mail from “Chief People Officer” Lindsay King announced the program on March 24, 2021. In the letter, King uses typical language about an inclusive workplace and how diversity brings better ideas. This new curriculum follows “Psychological Safety” training

Ohio Republicans are fond of saying that it’s easy to vote, but hard to cheat in the Buckeye state. Turns out they think voting is a little too easy.(Snip)The ostensible justification for these measures is to protect the “integrity” of elections, even though the 2020 presidential election was the most secure in the nation’s history. Nor is there any evidence to support former President Donald Trump’s ridiculous claim that widespread fraud cost him reelection.Republicans could have examined what made Trump such a flawed candidate and adjusted their message to appeal to a wider swath of voters.
