01 Nov Example #2,468 – Corporations Can Never Be “Woke” Enough For Leftists
Another month, another company that isn’t “woke” enough for lefties. We’ve highlighted this before, most recently when teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg told the United Nations that no company was doing enough to fight climate change.
Now, it’s Facebook that’s under attack. This is a company which scores a “1” across the board here at 2ndVote. They are regularly – and rightly – accused of bias against conservatives. But despite it all, they simply can’t do enough to please the wokest among us.
In just the last three weeks:
- Democratic Party presidential candidate and U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) targeted the company for allegedly not doing enough to stop “lies.”
- Company employees wrote a letter attacking company leadership over its alleged duty to stop “lies.” This letter was released to the press.
- Democratic Members of Congress attacked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for the new proposed Facebook cryptocurrency Libra.
- Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey banned political ads on his platform, putting pressure on Facebook to do the same even though the term “political ad” is vague and Twitter’s move is almost entirely symbolic.
Like Dorsey, Starbucks, Home Depot, and many other companies, Facebook has lurched left for years to please the woke online crowd. Now the chickens are coming home to roost, as Facebook has alienated conservatives through its discrimination and has alienated liberals by…well, doing everything they’ve asked while still being a dynamic, profit-driven, capitalist company.
Mr. Zuckerberg, here’s a novel idea: Just stick to Facebooking. Stay out of politics. Please. For your sake and ours.
