    Surge Summary: Having corrupted huge chunks of society — Media, Education, Pop Culture, Government – radical Leftists are eyeballing the takeover of Big Business. And having some success with that goal … as Corporations are willing to co-operate with advancing the Progressive agenda and values.  

    by Gary Bauer

    The media and our universities have been dominated by the radical left for decades.  But have you noticed that big business now increasingly sides with the left?  Sometimes I wonder whether they even realize they are American companies.

    For years, we watched in horror as iconic American corporations moved their factories overseas, often to communist China.  Their actions devastated American families and communities, and the companies became apologists for communist China.

    China’s human rights abuses have been well-documented for decades. Whether it was forced abortions under its barbaric one-child policy or the suppression of free speech and religious freedom. None of that stopped American companies from enriching themselves and communist China.

    Now the brutal communist regime has ended what little freedom remained in Hong Kong.  Even worse, it stands accused of committing genocide against ethnic minorities.

    Where are the statements of condemnation from corporate America and the NBA?  How dare these “woke” corporations lecture us about our values when they are profiting off of slave labor!

    But not only are these American corporations soft on communists abroad, they are making common cause with socialists here at home.

    Big tech companies like Facebook and YouTube are shutting down conservative viewpoints.  Pro-life messages are blocked.  Conservative Christian messages are blocked.  Books that promote biological reality are banned.  Silencing free speech is what totalitarian regimes do.

    In recent years, several states tried to protect religious liberty and ensure that our daughters were safe in public restrooms.  But big corporations blasted the commonsense legislation as bigoted.  They threatened to boycott those states if the legislation passed.

    Why do these companies think they can dictate our values when they refuse to speak up against communist China’s atrocities?

    Fast forward to today.  Millions of Americans have serious concerns about the last election.  Many states are advancing bills to roll back the “emergency” pandemic orders that radically changed election laws and made fraud easier.  Several courts have ruled that these bureaucratic changes were in fact illegal.  (Herehere and here.)

    But the Georgia Chamber of Commerce and several big corporations, bowing to pressure from the left, just announced their opposition to Georgia’s critical election reform measures.

    For years conservatives like me have proudly supported American business.  I still do, particularly when it involves small businesses and entrepreneurs who are the backbone of our economy.  I believe in free markets and the fundamentals of capitalism.

    But many big corporations are now handmaidens of the radical left.  And as the left-wing crowd in Washington gets ready to massively raise taxes on multinational corporations, they will find few, if any, allies on the right willing to defend them.
