Did you hear the big news of the day?
America’s oligarchs, woke celebrities, millionaires and billionaires and hundreds of the most powerful corporations in the country and their CEOs have taken out an ad in the New York Times to show their support for democracy. By democracy, they mean that they alone are going to make the laws now and that we can dispense with the voters and their elected representatives.
“Dozens of companies, including Amazon, Google, Starbucks and Netflix, joined hundreds of business leaders, celebrities, law firms, and nonprofits to sign a new statement opposing “any discriminatory legislation” that would restrict ballot access.
The statement, appearing Wednesday as advertisements in The New York Times and The Washington Post, is the latest and largest mobilization by corporate America against restrictive voting legislation advanced by Republicans around the country.
“We stand for democracy,” the statement, stretched across two full pages, reads. “We all should feel a responsibility to defend the right to vote and to oppose any discriminatory legislation or measures that restrict or prevent any eligible voter from having an equal and fair opportunity to cast a ballot.” …”
They’re all Democrats now.
Big Media, Big Business, Big Education, Big Law, Big Tech, Wall Street, Hollywood and the Pentagon are all on the same side now. The political establishment is pro-democracy!
I can’t stop laughing.
This is what Donald Trump’s big tax cut got you.
This is what conservatives get for spending a generation cutting their taxes, deregulating Big Business and looking the other way while millions of foreigners break our immigration laws.
Maybe you thought it was a little odd when we started talking about raising Huey Long and the Share Our Wealth platform from the grave back in January. What do you think now?
