Conservative Group Pushes Back Against the Corporate Wokeism Threatening Our Liberty

The ACU is protecting Americans’ liberty against corporate wokeism with the establishment of The Center To Protect Voters and Their Voices

Published

I will admit it–I am a big fan of the American Conservative Union (ACU). Not only because they run my favorite political event every year—CPAC, but because they are usually the first to recognize and act against the approaching threats to our freedoms. Their latest action is typical of the way they fight for our liberty. Anyone who has followed the news since Georgia passed their election integrity law, knows how major corporations have taken steps based on the false cancel culture claims about the bill. ACU protecting liberty.

This isn’t the first time major corporations have used their resources to skew the political discourse toward policies that attack Americans’ freedoms nor will it be the last time. Recognizing those gathering anti-liberty clouds the ACU announced the establishment of The Center To Protect Voters and Their Voices.

On behalf of more than 100 million Americans, The American Conservative Union (ACU) is taking a stand against the increasingly divisive and partisan activism by public corporations and organizations that are caving to “woke” pressure. We will not stand by as half the country gets silenced, canceled, or shamed for resisting this pressure and choosing instead to value beliefs and traditions that are the bedrock of the greatest nation on earth.

ACU, America’s original conservative grassroots organization, has partnered with corporations and other center-right groups since 1964 to fight higher taxes, burdensome regulations and activist judges. We have worked alongside the business community to preserve free markets by limiting the government’s role in the private sector so for-profit businesses could flourish, provide jobs, and meet their primary goal of creating value for their shareholders.

But we are in a dangerous time today.

The unprecedented level of anti-Americanism, combined with radical leftist appeasement, makes it necessary for us to tell these activist corporations that their woke politics risk permanently severing the long-standing coalition for limited government between corporations and conservative activists. Some of today’s most prominent businesses that succumb to pressure from the elite media or radical political organizations are the very same ones that leaned on conservatives to help fight socialism in the past.

We have no issue with corporate leaders expressing their positions on cultural questions, but we draw the line when they abuse their power, attack the values of their customers and employees, and advocate for policies that weaken America. Make no mistake, corporations and their leaders should not disrespect the diverse views of their customers and employees by bowing down to the peer pressure from celebrities, prominent business associations, and the radical Left.

We have moved into dangerous territory where highly profitable companies can join forces to inject themselves into whatever social issue of the day is politically expedient, regardless of the impact on everyday Americans. Corporations have taken shortcuts and disingenuously accused election reformers of voter suppression and racism. But not only have they attacked voting rights and spread misinformation on the voting laws, they are also complicit in an unscientific and harmful assault on gender, unborn life, immigration, and energy policy, to name a few. When did we become a country where respectful disagreement is forbidden?

They have also maligned and silenced large percentages of their own customers and employees who feel differently. These individuals can no longer speak up to express their political, social or religious views because they are now at risk of being fired or publicly shamed.

We will be a voice for those who feel so powerless that they fear the consequences of speaking up.

We will expose the hypocrisy of corporate leaders who are publicly embracing and funding the Left while running companies that would cease to exist if the full extent of the Democrat’s leftist economic policies were implemented. We will demand that leaders of these corporations stop further dividing America by unquestioningly siding with the Left on every cultural or political dispute. Our goal is to encourage the CEOs and Directors of these companies to go back to running their businesses.

We will first demand meetings with CEO’s and board members of egregious corporations and other woke enterprises. If these companies rebuff us, they will suffer the consequences of losing the political support of millions who would gladly advocate for the policies that ensure their profitability. If these companies continue down this dangerous road of separating themselves from their advocates, we will take additional steps to highlight their support of woke politics.

This is a fight we never expected to have to wage against entities that usually have been allies in economic battles, but we will wage it with all of our resources and talents.

Thank you ACU, I will support you in this fight.ACU protecting liberty.

He’s still got it!

There has been no shortage of concerns over the health of our elected officials as of late, and with good reason.  We keep electing septuagenarians who aren’t exactly the perfect specimen of physical or mental health. And so, far too often, we hear these elder statesmen ragging on one another’s condition.  During the 2016 election, we had to watch the painful and frankly scary behavior of Hillary Clinton, who was in continual denial about whatever affliction she was dealing with at the time.  In 2020, it was Donald Trump and Joe Biden arguing back and forth over their stamina and physical aptitude.  At one point, Biden even suggested that he would drop and give us several pushups in the middle of a debate if Trump would be willing to match him. That potentially hilarious incident never occurred, (maybe thankfully, in order to save our nation from that embarrassment), but these feats of strength remain out there, in the ether, just waiting for some poor sap to take the bait. A reporter in Texas was almost that sap this week. Texas Republican Party Chairman Allen West, a 60-year-old former Army lieutenant colonel, did 30 pushups at a press conference outside the state capitol on Wednesday. The pushups occurred near the end of the event, which was to discuss the state’s new abortion and anti-transgender bills. West initially challenged a CBS Austin reporter who showed up late to the event to do 30 pushups in order to make up for his tardiness. After the journalist declined, West did the pushups himself. The crowd counted along and then cheered after he completed them in roughly 22 seconds. Video of the incident shows that West has still got it. https://twitter.com/janestreet/status/1390055667612979204?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1390055667612979204%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.newsweek.com%2Ftexas-gop-chair-lt-col-allen-west-challenges-reporter-press-conference-do-30-pushups-1589432 West has long been an icon in the conservative world, and there is little doubt that this…

Twitter Account Suspended for Sharing Link to Trump’s New Website

This is unbelievable.

Published

on

Twitter has long had it out for Donald Trump, having already banned the former President from the platform for life following the attempted insurrection of January 6th.  This was followed shortly thereafter by a slightly less-permanent ban by Facebook that has yet to be rescinded. Now, however, Twitter is taking it a step further, and essentially erasing the 45th President of the United States from the platform entirely. A Twitter account sharing posts from former President Donald Trump’s new blog and other right-wing content was banned by the platform Wednesday. A spokesman for the social media site said Twitter would take enforcement action against accounts whose apparent intent is to replace or promote content affiliated with a suspended account. The suspended account reposted blog entries that were originally published on the From the desk of Donald J. Trump blog, which launched Tuesday. The suspended account also shared tweets from other Republican politicians, including Caitlyn Jenner, who’s running for governor of California. Trump’s new blog is billed as “a place to speak freely and safely,” though readers don’t appear able to comment on his posts. Posts date back as far as March 24 and contain sentiments anyone familiar with Trump’s tweets would recognize. Buttons to the right of his posts allow readers to like or share a post in their own Twitter or Facebook feed. This censorship will likely be put to the test in the coming years, as Trump has made it abundantly clear that he intends to run for office again in 2024.
