Where Is the Corporate Disavowal of Black Lives Matter?

USA –   -(Ammoland.com)- Liberal business executives are leaping like lemmings from President Donald Trump's manufacturing advisory council. Good riddance.

These silly string-spined CEOs have sided with social justice agitators, Beltway media enablers and Democratic resistance knuckleheads who believe Trump was wrong to condemn violence and hatred on all sides of the political spectrum. Never mind that of the four people arrested after the violent outbreak in Charlottesville, Virginia, this weekend, two were identified with the white nationalist movement and the other two were left-wing “antifa” counterprotesters.

One of those radical leftists is the man identified as having reportedly punched a female reporter for the D.C.-based newspaper, The Hill.

But since that doesn't fit the national media narrative of journalists allegedly being victimized by right-wing incitements to violence, mum's the word from corporate media executives and the rest of the preening CEOs.

Merck CEO Kenneth C. Frazier claimed he stepped down from the Trump business panel because he felt “a responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism.” But Frazier, who served on President Obama's Export Council, felt no equivalent responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism when the White House invited leaders from the violence-inciting Black Lives Matter movement for a forum on policing in July 2016.

The invitation was a grievous affront to law enforcement officers and their families across the country outraged at the deadly ambushes committed against cops in Dallas and Baton Rouge that summer, along with several other forgotten cop-killings fueled by BLM-linked hate and vengeance. Who remembers the slaying of Kentucky state trooper Joseph Ponder by BLM marcher and “Hands up, don't shoot” slogan-spreader Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks in September 2015?

At least 11 police have been shot dead and at least nine more wounded by BLM protesters, activists and/or supporters to date.

One of the surviving policemen in the Baton Rouge massacre filed suit last month against BLM and laid out the case against its leaders, who “not only, incited the violence against police in retaliation for the death of black men shot by police, but also did nothing to dissuade the ongoing violence and injury to police. In fact, they justified the violence as necessary to the movement and war.”

The permanently disabled cop's lawsuit recounts escalating riots, arson and plundering after the police-involved deaths of Michael Brown and Freddie Gray in Ferguson, Missouri, through the ambushes in Dallas and Baton Rouge, and leading up to the Obama administration's embrace of BLM's leaders. After the meeting, BLM leader DeRay McKesson responded to questions about his movement's culpability for inciting violence by asserting that his “people take to the streets as a last resort. … So when I think about anything that happens when people are in the street, I always start by saying, ‘People should not have had to have been there in the first place.'”

As the lawyers for the Baton Rouge cop, who must remain anonymous to protect his family, properly concluded: “These statements were a ratification and justification of the violence.”

But instead of recriminations, the militants of BLM enjoy continued praise and coddling from corporate America. Tech execs from Netflix, YouTube and Google all donated to McKesson's failed mayoral bid in Baltimore. Business execs have been coughing up untold hundreds of millions of dollars to BLM and related causes, funneled through left-wing nonprofits such as the Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy.

On Tuesday, Walmart executive Doug McMillon wagged his finger at Trump, urging “elected officials to do their part to promote a more just, tolerant and diverse society.”

This from the head of a retail giant that only recently stopped selling racially divisive, anti-cop taunting, violence-glamorizing T-shirts that bragged: “Bulletproof: Black Lives Matter.”

And the disavowal double standards beat goes on.

    1. It is Past time to hurt the business leaders that support the “left wing agitators” right where it hurts the most, in the pocket book!! I firmly agree with Kieran, it’s time for some serious boycotting. We elected a President, now lets bring down a traitor or two. I don’t know where to start, I have been a Ford person all my life. My family has sent a lot of money Fords way. I am more than willing to mark them off my list. What say you folks?

      1. @RH…Got acquainted with Dodge Ram Power Wagons while in the military. There were Fords and Chevy’s to, but those old power wagons always came back. Haven’t driven anything since (except employers vehicles). They are now called Ram Trucks .

      2. @Raymond – The only problem with ‘boycotting’ is that you’re limiting your consumer choices and the market becomes ever more limited. When markets ‘dry up’ capitalism suffers and the ‘Leftists’ win because they revile Capitalism in the first place! Kind of a ‘double edge sword’?

        1. @Janek, Boycott is a pretty good way to hit business people that support anarchists. Do you have a better way to punish those businesses?

        1. This is true. It is not affiliated with Ford Motor. Ford Foundation was funded from the original Henry Ford’s estate as well as his son,Edsel Ford. Originally , the Ford family ran the foundation, but it became more and more independent in the early 5o’s. Those original Fords are likely rolling over in their graves at the direction their foundation has taken.

    2. B.L.M. came into being under the guise of
      a good Idea hat has gone so far off the rails,
      that there is no turn-around for it .
      I don’t blame every cop on the street for the birth ,
      of B.L.M. . I don’t know if it had a real need for it .
      I do know that ALL lives matter and standing up
      for your race or culture is not a bad thing !
      How you go about it is another story and to me ,
      this is not doing either , Just the opposite in my book .

    3. If corporate America wants to support the leftist agenda,
      Ex. Ford foundation with BLM.why is anyone from the right still buying ford products.we should stop shopping at businesses that actively support the leftist agenda.action will be more effective than threats of boycott the left usees,they aren’t really buying anything anyway!
