Several companies that have publicly embraced the Black Lives Matter movement are among the largest corporate contributors to Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR). In a column published last Wednesday, Cotton called for a military occupation of U.S. cities where people are protesting the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery and other innocent Black Americans. Only an "overwhelming show of force," Cotton argued, can clear the streets and "disperse, detain and ultimately deter lawbreakers."
Thank you. I hope you keep the pressure on these companies.
Thank you, Judd, for OUTING CORPORATE HYPOCRITES. We MUST hold them accountable.
Thanks for exposing the corporate hypocrisy. The staggering amounts of money donated through PAC's shows where our democracy has gone wrong. Campaign finance needs a complete overhaul. We've got to get money out of politics and make things fairer or our democracy is done.
None of this is at all surprising. These high rollers always hedge their bets. I don’t mind if they contribute in order to affect a positive change and maybe that’s the next question to ask. What do they expect for their money? In light of the tons of money these institutions make, what they are contributing is petty cash. If they expect preference in being heard, yes, it stinks and should be stopped. Cotton is a racist, RWNJ who should be un-elected ASAP. Who’s up for the challenge I wonder?
Well ya know you got pay Republican Congress back for that big corporate and personal tax cut some how... Other than Judd, the MSM Labradoodles are laying in the shade panting over having to work so hard the last two weeks chasing the horrific news but not checking more in to the people causing the chaos in the marches. Including the fool on Pennsylvania Ave.
Oh, Dear. I see some names I do business w/. I think I'll raise a stink. There' nothing I enjoy more than verbally abusing people who are very bad at their jobs, in general, but whom are obligated to be "professional" to me. <small, but supremely-evil smile>
Thank you for shining a light on this. You might not be able to stop these companies from supporting the fascists, but at least the public should understand these corporate statements for what they are— whitewashing (or is it “blackwashing”?) their corporate racism through a disingenuous marketing campaign.
