This is coming to Australia if we let it
The United States is fast becoming a one-party state – just look at this from the New York Times, which is supposed to be a newspaper.
Last week, hundreds of companies signed a letter opposing “any discriminatory legislation”.
It relates to the Georgia voting law, which Biden and Harris have lied repeatedly about.
Here is the ad (no, you won’t be able to read it):
Amazon, BlackRock, Google, Warren Buffett and hundreds of other companies and executives signed on to a new statement released on Wednesday opposing “any discriminatory legislation” that would make it harder for people to vote.
It was the biggest show of solidarity so far by the business community as companies around the country try to navigate the partisan uproar over Republican efforts to enact new election rules in almost every state. Senior Republicans, including former President Donald J. Trump and Senator Mitch McConnell, have called for companies to stay out of politics.
The statement was organized in recent days by Kenneth Chenault, a former chief executive of American Express, and Kenneth Frazier, the chief executive of Merck. A copy appeared on Wednesday in advertisements in The New York Times and The Washington Post.
This is concerning that companies are injecting themselves directly into debates like this, especially when their advocacy is based on a lie.
The the NYT went full Nazi – and in this instance, the analogy is correct,
They have named the organisations that did not sign their letter. To shame them.
“There are some notable omissions,” the report reads. “Many companies declined to sign the statement, and some executives, such as Mr. Buffett, signed for themselves but not on behalf of their companies. Coca-Cola and Delta, which spoke out about the Georgia law after it was passed, declined to add their names, perhaps fearing more blowback for earlier statements and also not feeling the need to speak again.”
It adds, “JPMorgan Chase also declined to sign the statement despite a personal request from senior Black business leaders to Jamie Dimon, who made a statement on voting rights before.”
There is more.
“Why didn’t Walmart sign?” the New York Times asks.
Walmart CEO Doug McMillon, by the way, put out a company-wide memo explaining the retailer’s position on Republican-backed Georgia-style voting laws.
“We are not in the business of partisan politics,” he said. “While our government relations teams have historically focused on core business issues like tax policy or government regulation, Walmart and other major employers are increasingly being asked to weigh in on broader societal issues such as civil rights.”
He adds that though Walmart didn’t sign the statement, “we do want to be clear that we believe broad participation and trust in the election process are vital to its integrity.”
This is not journalism, this is activism. This is fascism.
But it gets worse.
Craig Kelly deserves an apology
Remember when everyone was slapping Craig Kelly in March when he said we should pause the rollout of the AstraZeneca vaccine?
He was accused of putting doubt in people’s minds about vaccines.
Remember when he copped a whacking from asshat David Koch?
This is bulldust
If you want us to get the vaccine, there has to be a reward. If we are now living in perpetual lockdown, let us know and the fightback will begin.
