The movie is Lightyear, a Toy Story prequel. Lightyear revolves around the origin story of the fictional Buzz Lightyear, the character who inspired the action figure in the Toy Story films. In this film, Buzz does his first test flight in order to explore new galaxies for Star Command to come in peace. However, when the evil Emperor Zurg threatens the universe’s safety, Buzz may be its only hope to save it.
Typical of most Big Tech giants, ABNB “stood in solidarity” with Black Lives Matter in 2020, and gave contributions to their cause. Additionally, they automatically sent customers visiting the ABNB website to the BLM homepage. ABNB speaks the language of “anti-racism,” which, as previously mentioned, is profoundly racist itself.
Is nothing sacred anymore? Hasbro seems to think not. Wokeness’ infection within Hasbro runs deep, so let’s consider just two examples, with a couple of America’s most iconic toys and games having been recently subjected to abject wokeism. In 2020 Hasbro decided that Mr. Potato Head would “Go Green” as their first toy to be made of plant-based plastic. Environmental responsibility isn’t a bad thing, but that makeover was merely a harbinger of things to come. Last year, Hasbro decided to throw Mr. Potato Head squarely into the middle of the transgender insanity, promising to make the toy more “gender-neutral” by rebranding him as simply “Potato Head.”
The epidemic of wokeness can infect companies in any industry. We’ve already seen it contaminate companies from the transportation, restaurant, banking, and online retail industries. Wokeness is all around us, and it’s unacceptable. Historically, many of these organizations are some of our favorite companies and brands who gladly take our money while trampling on our conservative values.
Target is all-in on their wokeness, and may even be worse than Wal-Mart which is on our list at #14. Target not only supports BLM to the tune $10 million, they have also been running TV commercials promoting black-owned, LatinX-owned, and LGBTQ-owned businesses. As always, if we reversed the races and sexuality of their campaign, and said they were promoting straight, white businesses, would that be a problem? Additionally, Target is clearly in lockstep with the fascist anti-fascists known as AntiFa, as they have repeatedly engaged in book banning.
This past January, The Blue State Conservative proudly published the article, “12 Woke Companies to Avoid” by our good friend, Gen Z Conservative, and you can read that article here. Since that time, the problem with wokeness taking over corporate America has not improved, it’s gotten worse; much worse. Therefore, we bring you the next group of companies to add to that growing list.
But there are many, many companies which existed prior to the internet from whom a great deal of loyalty should rightly be expected, because a great deal of loyalty has been paid to them over the years. Some can be cited as particularly egregious examples of crappy decision-making in the age of “woke” because they’ve thrown entire generations of loyal customers under the bus with their incessant drive toward wooing the johnny-come-lately crowd.
In this installment of their weekly Sunday Six conversation, PF Whalen and Parker Beauregard of The Blue State Conservative look back on the Olympic Trials and fortnight of competition utterly disgusted by the childish, selfish, and ignorant actions of athletes supposedly representing this great country.
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith Reminds Us, Bowing To The Woke Mob Is A Bad Idea: A Growing List Of Examples
While Smith was clearly naïve in suggesting that the English language is relatively easy to learn, his overall point that English-speaking stars help make the sport easier to sell is obviously true. The level to which the situation is problematic is certainly debatable, but Smith’s position was certainly reasonable. But reasonableness doesn’t matter to the woke.
To use a tennis analogy in respect to MLB, baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred’s decision in early-April to move the All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver was an unforced error. And a costly one. After receiving pressure from Democrats and their media regarding Georgia’s controversial-but-not-really-controversial voting law, Manfred bowed to Cancel Culture and demands from the MLB Players Union and succumbed.
There is no doubt that the alliance between these three groups is solely based on having similar enemies, that enemy being the successful white male. Once these groups decide that their enemy is no longer a threat, then these three groups will have to attack each other as they will realize that silencing the white male was not the cause of their “oppression.”
Corporations are like water, taking the shape of the vessel in which they find themselves — even if it’s shaped like Beelzebub himself. Legion now are the stories of the business and individuals who’ve value-signaled over a bathroom bill in North Carolina or some other such thing while simultaneously making millions off lands whose un-woke laws represent everything these wokesters claim to despise.
I do not care what color the pilot of my airplane is. I just want the most competent flyer that will get me to my destination safely. To see that you are now deviating from this common sense policy is quite frankly terrifying.
Punish legislators, both at the state and federal level, that won’t fight these woke companies by primarying them. Punish the companies by boycotting them and avoiding their stock. Agitate for legislators to tax them at obscene levels.
United will polish its woke credentials by giving its clientele what it wants most — diversity in the cockpit. United has announced that 50% of its new pilots entering training will be females or people of color.
Google has become an activist corporation that actively works against conservatives. It used to be a business, now it’s effectively a progressive policy group. Thanks to that change, conservatives need to steel themselves and boycott Google.
In other words, to the detriment of America and the truth, Big Corp has gone “woke.” Coca-Cola provides the most recent and egregious example of gross corporate wokeness.
The simple fact is, whether we like it or not, the culture war is raging around us and we need to fight it now. These anti-racism seminars are just products of the cancel culture Red Guard.
The vicious manner in which the show ridicules those suffering from eating disorders is wholly unacceptable; the Cookie Monster needs healing and compassion, not mockery.
We must fight the culture war right now and with everything we’ve got. The woke mob knows no bounds and will destroy us and our nation if we don’t fight back against it.
It’s not the product they’re putting on the field, it’s not the quality of the broadcasts, and it’s not some sort of national distraction that’s been driving us away in droves. There is one, overwhelmingly obvious issue that has caused the NFL’s ratings freefall: their wokeness.
The NFL exposed themselves for who they truly are: leftist activists intent on exploiting their position in our culture to further their cause through identity politics.
Forget that tens of thousands have died due to Cuomo’s utter incompetence with COVID, and forget that he’s an overall lousy governor; Cuomo is unassailable. If indisputable evidence were to come out tomorrow proving Cuomo barbecues puppies and prefers them medium-rare and served with hollandaise sauce, the mainstream media would simply shrug their shoulders and ignore it.
