“Cancel Culture Pandemic”: Fortune 500 companies are exacerbating society’s schizophrenic condition
Mar 1, 2021: As society continues to deal with the incessant wounds and scars exacted by cancel culture and its rotten tech giant accomplices, many of the remaining Fortune 500 corporations have elected to participate in the up-branding and profit opportunities that come with this wayward and ‘radioactive’ anti-social disorder.
Over the course of the past year, the scourge of cancel culture has touched everyone in some way, either directly or indirectly. Anyone failing to comply with the progressive woke ideology of the left is susceptible to the consequences of an increasingly abusive and hostile gang of ideological thugs. Harper’s Magazine published an open letter in July of 2020 calling for a move away from cancel culture altogether. The scourge of cancel culture was denounced as “censorious and an intolerance of opposing views, a vogue for public shaming and ostracism and the tendency to dissolve complex policy issues in a blinding moral certainty.” (New York Post – Brook Kato; July 10, 2020) The Harper Magazine open letter was signed by more than 150 public figures – it was signed in disappointment and outrage over the bigotry of cancel culture and its evisceration of the unalienable right to free speech and thought. The 150 open letter signatories are noteworthy for their contributions to society, with contributions ranging across all topics and all geographies. Prominent (and formerly respected) open letter signatories included: Margaret Atwood, Salman Rushdie, JK Rowling, Noam Chomsky, Malcolm Gladwell, David Brooks, Bari Weiss, and Matthew Yglesias among many other notable personalities across the entire ideological spectrum.
Apparently, the easy (and profitable) way forward for the Fortune 500 corporate ‘superstars’ is to pile-on to the cancel culture parade. Indeed, the Fortune 500 have maneuvered in choreographed unison as they simultaneously abandon politically ‘un-woke” right-leaning entities/politicians, earn “woke” brand-image and PR points by aligning themselves with the ideological left, and draw incremental profits and undeserved favor by luring rabid and gullible progressives and socialists into their ‘web of deceit’. The latest form of casualty in the cancel culture war is the Republican Party or any other entity bearing a resemblance to the right. The fact that the Republican Party (and the right) has become a primary target of the cancel culture army is less important than the expanding trend of persistent ‘societal canceling’ from all areas of society (woke individuals, corporations, entertainers, athletes, and academics). Unless stopped through a show of united strength, courage and integrity within society, the cancel culture pandemic will continue to rage out of control, especially as our largest multinational corporation intensify their leading and exploitive role in this ruthless and immoral plague.
Based on findings taken from the work of Fortune Magazine’s Phil Wahba (January 11, 2021) and Newsweek’s Alexandria Hutzler (January 12, 2021), EA is pleased to provide an extensive list of Fortune 500 companies who have openly attacked the Republican Party (via political funding withdrawals, political funding suspensions, contractual withdrawals, withdrawal of service offerings, lopsided financial support of the DNC, overt attacks on right-leaning organizations, campaign meddling and interference, and skewed messaging to fake media and journalists). All American patriots and freedom fighters should take note of each of these Fortune 500 firms and understand that they are actively and aggressively targeting western society (and our freedom) with cancel culture tactics embedded into their day-to-day financial, operational and business models.
