Corporate Cancel Culture is Killing Us | Ben Garrison

The ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement is all about Marxism.
People are not allowed to amend the far-left slogan, “Black Lives Matter” and it’s endlessly repeated in all the blue cities. It’s painted in large letters on public thoroughfares. Trying to paint over such graffiti might get you arrested for ‘hate crime.’
If you dare say “All lives matter,” then you could lose your job or face physical violence. If you are foolish enough to utter ‘White lives matter,’ you could lose your social media posting ability, your banking privileges, and you may even fetch the FBI on your tail. Whites are no longer allowed to feel as if they mattered—that’s now considered ‘white supremacism.’ Everything accomplished by European Americans must be discredited, denounced, and destroyed. All whites are now considered racist—even progressives. Books and movies frowned upon by the BLM are now getting censored in the land of free speech.
“Marxism matters” is what I hear from the lemmings who keep repeating the trendy three word phrase. The Democrat socialists are using racial division and the threat of violence to advance their game plan. Part of that plan includes the complete destruction of statues, monuments, and landmarks that help instill pride in America. The Marxists want to destroy national pride and patriotism. Doing so makes it easier for them to replace our Republic with their Marxist system.
It’s therefore strange that many major globalist corporations loudly proclaim their support for the BLM movement, which is not only anti-Christian but also vigorously anti-capitalist. It could be due to the natural reflex brought about by the word ‘diversity.’ All HR departments are very strident about it. It is their primary worship word. Racism and sexism must be stamped out and for the most part it has been, but corporations keep stamping harder and harder when there is really nothing left to stamp.
The CEOs are contributing millions of dollars to the BLM movement as a way to show they are celebrating diversity. In my cartoon I show them climbing over each other in their eagerness to show who’s the best virtue signaler. Many companies are now instituting hiring quotas and are greatly paring down the presence of white male employees. (The NFL won’t have to do this). Qualifications, skill, and experience don’t matter—only diversity, which is always paramount.
Speaking of the NFL, if we ever do see another season, we can expect to see ALL players kneeling out of respect for the BLM. Maybe they’ll change the National Anthem, too—or eliminate it altogether. In that case, the NFL can expect a loss of lot of viewers, including me. That’s not a concern for them, though. Bowing to the BLM is the top concern. For them, virtue signaling is more important than common sense. Nike is a good example. They rewarded Colin Kaepernick with a giant contract for his kneeling and the many disrespectful statements he made against America.
We’ve now entered the wacky world of Marxism, which is not aligned with reality.
Reality has a way of punishing those who stubbornly stay out of alignment for very long.
