Sen. Ron Johnson claims the administration “wants complete open borders and you have to ask yourself why. Is it really, they want to remake the demographics of America to ensure their — that they stay in power forever? Is that what’s happening here?” pic.twitter.com/ZQ8MHNdv9u— Sahil Kapur (@sahilkapur) April 16, 2021
As we explained this morning, the politicians are influenced by polls. We’ve noticed that a lot of the Republican politicians have been reprogrammed lately because the “far right” is winning and gaining ground. They’ve changed their tune on comprehensive immigration reform. Marco Rubio attempted to sound like he was pro-worker. Mitt Romney was reprogrammed and endorsed an expanded child tax credit. Suddenly, White Genocide has even punched through into the national conversation.
Look at this Marist poll.
Woke Capitalism is a huge political loser for Democrats. The typical American doesn’t really like their boss and they are even less fond of the idea of being bossed around by Big Business and progressive activists. It is easy to forget that the typical voter isn’t a college-educated woke professional. Last year, nearly half of Americans changed their sports viewing habits because they hated “social justice” activism.
The legendary business professor Jeffrey Sonnenfeld is saying in Politico Magazine that the Democrat-Woke Capitalism alliance is here to stay and will accelerate in the years ahead.
“Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, a legendary business professor and associate dean at the Yale School of Management, has watched this split grow in recent years, and has heard it from CEOs he knows and works with. What the GOP cares about and what major businesses care about are, increasingly incompatible, he says.
“The political desire to use wedge issues to divide—which used to be fringe in the GOP—has become mainstream,” Sonnenfeld says. “That is 100 percent at variance with what the business community wants. And that is a million times more important to them than how many dollars of taxes are paid here or there.” …
As the GOP tries to position itself as the home of “working-class values,” capturing loyalty with a steady campaign against the perceived excesses of progressive culture, it’s running afoul of a business community that can’t simply silo off “culture war” topics. In the eyes of major corporations, issues like voting rights, immigration and transgender-inclusive restrooms have economic impact, too. The millions of people alienated by those fights aren’t just their future customers, many of whom expect to support brands they believe in, they’re the companies’ employees. …
That’s what “progressivism” is and was. And that’s the theory [that animates] Joe Biden and Mayor Pete [Buttigieg] and Amy Klobuchar and maybe Mitt Romney. That’s who progressives are. And that’s where the business community is: They’re pretty much somewhere between Mitt Romney and Joe Biden. …
Basically, business leaders believe that it’s in the interest of society to have social harmony. The CEOs really care about these issues. Divisiveness in society is not in their interest—short term or long term. They don’t want angry communities; they don’t want fractious, finger-pointing workforces; they don’t want hostile customers; they don’t want confused and angry shareholders. …”
Big Business CEOs and Wall Street believe in “social harmony.”
This is why they are using their economic power to push the unpopular agenda of CEOs and progressive activists on woke supremacy, Southern heritage issues, abortion, racism and sexism, “white supremacy,” trans, religious liberty, amnesty, affirmative action, “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion,” and so forth. These things are “a million times more important to them” than any concerns that these CEOs might have over economic issues like antitrust, taxation, government regulation, unions, free trade or the minimum wage. Democracy and social harmony will be achieved when an elite cabal of CEOs, billionaires and out-of-state progressive activists succeed in forcing social liberalism on recalcitrant state legislatures.
