Tom Cotton reminds us that too many corporations are brutally pro-abortion — a sickness that begins in America’s institutions of higher indoctrination.
I learned at Ace of Spades that Sen. Tom Cotton (R. Arkansas) delivered a powerful speech today about the way in which corporations are using their wealth and power to advance a hardcore Leftist agenda. I have just one point to make about that subject, and then I’ll embed the video of his speech, along with a transcript from his office.
A lot of people ask why corporations have become so Left wing. After all, shouldn’t they be avatars of capitalism? Whatever happened to the good old days of corporate leaders believing in capitalism and free market? Why are they all Lefties now?
The answer is simple: With almost no exceptions, modern corporate management, from the CEO down to the lowliest manager, graduated from America’s colleges and universities. In addition, depending on how white collar the corporation is, every other employee is also a college/university graduate. Here are just four off-the-top-of-my-head examples of insanity at three major American institutions.
- Yale: Students had mental breakdowns when they were told to enjoy Halloween without imposing PC virtue-signaling on their costumes.
- Oberlin: The college attacked and tried to destroy a 5th generation family bakery for having the temerity to apprehend a student shoplifter, who then, along with two student companions, assaulted a bakery employee.
- Harvard: Married law professors who were the first black faculty deans in college history got the boot from being faculty deans for daring to represent Harvey Weinstein. Apparently the mere fact that Weinstein had legal representation traumatized Harvard’s students beyond bearing.
- Harvard: Kyle Kashuv, a top high school student and, since the shooting at his high school, an effective advocate for the Second Amendment, got the boot from Harvard’s admissions office based upon stupid and offensive statements he made when he was 16 — statements for which he wholeheartedly apologized and that are completely at odds with his words and behavior since then. Meanwhile, David Hogg, a strident anti-gun nut who was a lousy student and makes dangerous and inflammatory statements against conservatives, is being welcomed at Harvard with open arms.
In addition to those four specific examples, over the last ten years or so, Americans have become familiar with the following campus plagues: [Read more…]
