Some corporations in America are greedily hooking-up with the cancel culture and far-left groups to signal their backing. Since George Floyd’s death, corporations have quickly plunged resources into ultra-liberal causes.
Back in July, we opined that “BLM has raised over $500 million in recent months. Money has poured in from corporations eager to give and show how politically correct they are in their ads. By doing so, their profits increase. Still, others use their platforms and censoring powers (Twitter, Google, Bing, Facebook, etc.) to suppress BLM critics’ views.
The latest craze is that some corporations are incorporating cancel culture tenants into official corporate policy. The goal seems to be to divide America. The message of the left is toxic. Abraham Lincoln once warned that:
“At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reaches us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction is our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time or die by suicide.”
Marco Rubio recently spoke out against Cigna’s corporate culture, one of the country’s largest healthcare providers.
“This woke ideology is infecting every part of our economy and our culture, and it only serves to divide Americans into smaller and smaller groups and then pit those groups against each other,” the Florida senator said.
The courses offered at Cigna included reviews of concepts like “white privilege,” “gender privilege,” and something called “religious privilege,” which is described as “a set of advantages that benefits believers of a certain religion but not people who practice other religions or no religions at all.”
Employees are also asked to go through a “Societal Norms checklist” and tick off boxes if they are “White,” “Christian,” or “Heterosexual.”
“You have to wonder how a corporate culture so consumed by dividing Americans can effectively serve our nation and its people,” Rubio said. “It is grotesque and un-American.”
The Washington Examiner also reviewed several chat logs from Cigna employees detailing what they believe are discriminatory hiring practices. In one conversation, a hiring manager informed an employee that a white man could not be interviewed because he didn’t meet the diversity criteria.
“Given the hiring practices they have in place where white, male candidates are blocked, regardless of qualifications, I have to say, ‘Yes, there’s obvious discrimination at this company,'” one employee told the Washington Examiner.
Rubio has emerged as a leader in the GOP against the issue of corporate political correctness, with many conservatives arguing that elected officials must turn their focus beyond left-wing politics on college campuses and public schools. Source: Washington Examiner.
