The Merging of Government and Corporate Powers

Remember once upon a time, way back in the 20th century, when Lefties were all FOR free speech and said dissent was patriotic?

Remember just a little ways back, in 2011, when Lefties cheered on Occupy Wall Street’s extended condemnation of Big Business?

Remember just last summer when Leftists cheered people ignoring COVID-19 rules and freely expressing their deep anger all over other people’s bodies and properties?

2021 will go down in history as the time when Leftists flipped the script.

NOW they are all about combining the powers of Big Government and Big Business to disenfranchise, silence, and shame the half of the country whose politics they despise.

And the incoming fake president is all for it. Joe Biden has selected at least fourteen current or former executives from Apple, Google, Amazon, Twitter and Facebook to serve in his administration or advise on the transition into power.

AOC has demanded Senators Cruz and Hawley resign immediately, while Rep. Bennie Thompson thinks they should be put on the No Fly list. Elsewhere, 7,000 law students and alumni have signed a petition demanding both Cruz and Hawley be disbarred.

Corporations are lining up to join the anti-Trumping McCarthyites too.

Ford Motor Co., Marriott, BlueCross BlueShield, itigroup Inc., Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs Group Inc., JPMorgan, and Commerce Bank have announced they will not be donating to any of the 147 Republicans who objected to the Electoral College vote.

Stripe, an online payment service, has shut down the Trump campaign’s payment processing services, blocking the president’s campaign from accepting donations by credit or debit card.

Deutsche Bank, one of President Trump’s largest lenders, announced that they will no longer do business with any of the president’s companies. Oh the irony of a bank that has admitted it helped Adolf Hitler now claiming the moral high ground!

Randall Lane (Forbes magazine’s chief content officer and editor) warned companies not to “hire any of Trump’s fellow fabulists” or else. In his view, the expulsion from society of Trump’s staff constitutes an important “national reset.” Lane claims his position is not “politically motivated.” Riiight.
