As the days and weeks progress following the death of George Floyd, major American-based, global companies have been adjusting how they do business in order to score points with a very vocal group of people — social justice activists. These activists don’t provide the majority of the profit these companies pull in every year, but they screech the loudest when someone the media or politicians tell them not to like says something that doesn’t fall in line with the pre-approved talking points.
Walt Disney Co., Papa John’s and T-Mobile, among others, have cowered to the outrage mob and pulled their ads from appearing during Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” program going forward. The moves are supposedly because Carlson hasn’t bent the knee to the increasingly divisive “Black Lives Matter” movement.
The far-left group Sleeping Giants has been focused on the communist tactic of shaming companies into pulling their ads from Carlson’s show after his comments against Black Lives Matter on Monday.
“This may be a lot of things, this moment we’re living through, but it is definitely not about Black lives,” Carlson said. “And remember that when they come for you — and at this rate, they will.”
Fox News also felt the need to clarify Carlson’s remarks, with a spokesperson saying that the host was “clearly referring to Democratic leaders and inner-city politicians,” according to Breitbart. No clarification was needed, but we still got one anyway.
I’m sorry. What was so offensive about Carlson’s opinion? Oh, that’s right. It just deviates from far-left groups way of thinking.
T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert tweeted in solidarity with a customer that threatened to leave the service if they agreed with Carlson's opinion.
Besides T-Mobile, Disney and Papa John's, tax preparer Jackson Hewitt has also pulled ads from Carlson's show.
Carlson is absolutely right. If you don’t toe the line, the mob will come for you too. Don’t pay them any mind, because in the end they and the methods they employ to get their way like petulant children don’t matter.
