“Whenever you hear the terms systemic/​structural/​institutional racism, white privilege, implicit bias, disparity, equity, intersectionality and anti-racism, there’s a fair probability that imbecility, mendacity and mischief will follow. And, invariably, political opportunism.”

That is a quote by U.S. Commission on Civil Rights member Peter N. Kirsanow, who is Black and was appointed to the commission during George W. Bush’s administration.

I wrote last week why Kirsanow believes “Critical Race Theory” is a lie – a decades-long scam on the citizens of America, including Blacks.

The theory – which is part of the Marxist agenda of Black Lives Matters movement – is also proving to be a super-wealthy scam, as well.

Here are some noted corporations and companies that have donated or pledged money to the various Marxist movements, according to a report posted Sept. 9 by Jeff Poor at FoxNews.com.

• DoorDash – $1 million in donations, with $500,000 going to Black Lives Matter via the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation and $500,000 to create a fund to be directed by the Black@DoorDash ERG towards state and local organizations. 

• Deckers – $500,000 to seven organizations, including Black Lives Matter Foundation.

• Amazon – $10 million to organizations that are working to bring about social justice and improve the lives of Black and African Americans.

• Gatorade – $500,000 to BLM Global Network Foundation.

• Microsoft – $250,000 to the BLM Foundation and five other civil rights organizations with whom it would “deepen our engagement” by donating $250,000 apiece. 

• Glossier, – $500,000 among five organizations, including BLM and linked to the BLM Global Network Foundation’s website. 

• 23andMe – CEO Anne Wojcicki announced June 2 that the biotech company and its employees would donate to BLM and linked to the BLM Global Network Foundation. 

• Airbnb – $500,000 between the NAACP and the @Blklivesmatter Foundation.

• Unilever’s – $350,000 to the BLM Global Network Foundation.

• Nabisco – $500,000 to the NAACP and to the BLM Global Network Foundation. 

• Dropbox – $500,000 to the BLM Global Network Foundation. 

• Square Enix – $250,000 to the NAACP and Black Lives Matter, linking to the BLM Global Network Foundation.

And more have been showing up online.

•Cisco – $5 million to Equal Justice Initiative, NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Color of Change and BLM.

• Grubhub – $1 million to Equal Justice Initiative

• Peloton – $500,000 to the NAACP legal defense fund, and it followed up with a promise to invest $100 million over four years to fight racial inequity.

• Walmart – $100 million over five years.

• Target – $10 million.

The list goes on and on, folks.

“Major corporations donate hundreds of thousands to Black Lives Matter to ‘fight injustice, inequality and discrimination.’ Do they understand what they’re supporting?” asked Fred Lucas in a July 7 article online.

And the group-think insanity is even infiltrating government institutions – including our military services. 

Tucker Carlson at Fox News recently pointed out some disturbing realities. An official message of a staff psychologist at a U.S. Air Force Base, Dr. Ryan Warner, was presented during an online seminar called “Unmasking Microaggressions in the Workplace” on June 5. 

Unbelievable.

The Army is on board, too.

“It emerged that the U.S. Army’s so-called Operation Inclusion told soldiers in Alabama that the phrase, ‘Make America Great Again’ is a form of quote, ‘socially acceptable covert white supremacy,’” according to Carlson. 

“Now, according to the Army’s quote, ‘in an equity and inclusion agency,’ the phrases ‘all lives matter,’ ‘American exceptionalism’ and ‘the celebration of Columbus Day’ are also examples of white supremacy,” he added.

“In May of 2017, the U.S. Coast Guard spent $8,600 on diversity training, led by ‘White Fragility’ author and noted lunatic, Robin DiAngelo,” Carlson said. “The Defense Intelligence Agency meanwhile, supposedly a serious place staffed by serious people, also endorsed DiAngelo’s crackpot race theories.

“The head of the DIA, Lt. Gen. Robert Ashley, said in a recent Town Hall and in his weekly e-mail to employees that ‘White Fragility’ was recommended reading,” Carlson continued. “Meanwhile, over at NASA, employees are being directed to resources concerning ‘White Fragility,’ an ‘Atlantic’ piece, ‘The Atlantic’ magazine called microaggressions matter, and a guide on how to be a good, quote, ‘white ally.’”

Reporter Poor wrote, “Carlson slammed so-called critical race theory, noting that President Donald Trump has issued an executive order halting the instruction of it (in government institutions).

“Carlson argued critical race theory was intended to serve ‘incompetent elites’ and posed risks when implemented in government agencies,” Poor concluded.

Amen, and thank God for Trump’s actions.

It’s time for us deplorable citizens to let these corporations know what we think of their support for Marxists who want to destroy this nation.

Just remember – two deputies were both shot in their heads and other gun shot wounds Sept. 20 in Los Angeles, and suspiciously, BLM protesters showed up at St. Francis Hospital practically before the ambulances arrived with the victims. They then blocked the emergency entrance, chanting “We hope they die” and “Y’all gonna die one by one.”

That tells you all you need to know about BLM – they’re blood-thirsty Marxists. 

Period.
