Taxed and I talked about this in depth, how the left has taken over corporate America, that these businesses only kept a footprint in the US for for tax purposes and trade deals, and why both party's wanted NAFTA.
Just more proof the left took over the GOP via the Establishment.
I found this article to be a great segue to finally broaching the subject of how the Marxists have taken over Corporate America. I was telling Taxed when I was a kid, there really wasn't anything known as liberalism, really, that 90% of the country was homogeneous in thought, commies were the threat.
The nation simply existed, politics was seldom the topic, and politics was just that, Govt, as opposed to the way the left has managed to politicize everything under the sun.

Most of you already know this, but for our younger readers, this will show you just how the left is killing off the US. Or rather, trying to.


The latest strategy of gun control activists is to force gun manufacturers “to consider their social impact” by buying stock in those companies and mobilizing shareholders to demand they study the concept.

The group called Adrian Dominican Sisters, led by a nun named Sister Judy Byron, is part of the Northwest Coalition for Responsible Investments, an anti-Second Amendment activist group. Their latest target was American Outdoor Brands Corporation (AOBC), which owns Smith & Wesson. The company was forced to do a study, which was released late Friday, but the results likely won’t make the nuns happy.

In their report, AOBC defended itself against critics of the Second Amendment, writing, “Specific terms sometimes are used to craft a narrative in support of those agendas. For example, phrases such as ‘gun violence’ are used to create a perception that the presence of a gun, in itself, somehow creates the conditions for violence.”

Moreover, the report takes swipes at liberal groups trying to tarnish the company’s reputation and bottom line. (RELATED: U.S. Supreme Court Takes Second Amendment Challenge To A Gun Control Law)

“The Company’s reputation as a strong defender of the Second Amendment is not worth risking for a vague goal of improving the Company’s reputation among non-customers or special interest groups with an anti-Second Amendment agenda,” the report reads.

AOBC is one of two firearm manufacturers the activists bought stock in for the expressed purpose of forcing a “dialogue with the companies about what they are doing to ensure the safety of children and communities whose lives may be at risk because of their products.”

One of the areas the activist nuns wanted addressed was the idea of “smart guns,” weapons that can only be fired by one user. AOBC called this “flawed technology” in the report, saying they would continue to monitor its development.

“AOBC does not believe that current authorized user or ‘smart gun’ technology is reliable, commercially viable, or has any significant consumer demand,” the report read.

How is a company forced to do anything from an outside group?
Social Media are multi-national billion dollar corporations with foreign investors that are going unchecked with the power to effect our election process.

"Book burnings" have evolved into "de-plat forming". Its the same principles behind both: to eliminate accessible knowledge.

Majority stock holders. First they weaken the company, then buy up stock. Just another leg of "Divide and Conquer".
Marxists seldom, if ever, start businesses, they just destroy them then take over. Soros playbook, page #1.

Disgruntled groups have been buying stock for years in hopes of having the board make changes they favor. In 99% of the cases these situations are no more than a mosquito on an elephant's ass.

It's that 1% that becomes their Hill to Die on, Eg. Procter & Gamble when they were taken over by leftists back in the late 60s, early 70s and we've seen what that brought.

Correct. Part of the 1% is also Buffet,  Icahn and the like.

Yep, and every time one made it, the LSM was there to tout their glory as culturally ground breaking.
Every move leftward was considered "Breaking the glass ceiling", that America was finally breaking the bonds that kept women down, that white men were finally losing their racist grip.
When P&G touted they were creating benefits packages for gay couples in their employ, they were held up as mentors for all corporations to follow.

When in the big scheme of things, this was actually less than 1% of industry, but the media painted the picture that "ALL" business will follow their lead, regardless.
