This is a really good article. This woman is a liberal who questioned the COVID measures implemented, and the woke mob at Levi Strauss, her employer, cancelled her. How dare she have her own opinion......................

@BoulderFish might appreciate it. It echo's his thoughts.

This is the left today.................. Authoritarian rule or bust....... Do what I say, OR ELSE....

Even when these woke employees are laid off, they don’t realize they are being used to further leadership’s deceptive message. In reality, these unsuspecting employees are often laid off primarily so that the rich can stay rich and keep getting richer. But the message broadcast to the world is that it was a “tough call” intended to maintain employment for as many as possible. The employees and consumers who believe the “we really care” message are being manipulated and taken advantage of in a woke capitalist game.

For a great many others, us oldsters in the upper echelons of American business leadership, woke capitalism is a ploy. It is a pose, a communications strategy, a way for corporate executives to feel like philanthropic heroes and be celebrated as such, all while getting rich in the same way they always have. Only this time, they are selling a side of righteousness and social justice activism to go with their T-shirts, instead of offering a mere assurance that insecure teenagers will look cool and feel confident on the first day of school. In their cynical way, these leaders are more relentlessly destructive than the most zealous social justice warriors, for they are even more willing to cancel anyone who challenges the narrative of companies as do-gooders.

Which is to say, woke capitalism is above all a lie. There is no justice in it. Only protection of intergenerational wealth for the already wealthy and enforced obedience and conformity of thought among employees to protect the lie.

Having come from the progressive side of the aisle, I was caught short and alarmed by the “progressive” savagery in policing their own, by the unforgiving drive to purge the unworthy and heretical. For those on the side that supposedly celebrates diversity to trample anyone who veers from top-down talking points — to hold any such dissent as profane — seems a transparent and obvious trespass against their own stated values.

I was once totally a liberal, please believe me; here is why I’m now writing this deep, thought provoking article whining about the left.


Repeat x10000 and you have the right wing “opinion column” nonsense that these people post here relentlessly.

The definition of owned.
