It clearly looks as though the well-heeled masses and elites are coalescing around the toxic movement of Black Lives Matter, and its ever-evolving agenda of stupidity.
The lesson here is that one can feed the mob, if one chooses, but one should realize he or she may inevitably be on the menu.
Sometimes it is not the poison that kills the rat but the fatal drink after that does it.
Apparently they are unaware of the eventual blowback to follow a radical movement of this kind, from the people. We cannot sustain America on a diet of this garbage for any time.
But completely naïve of this or any other consequences to getting in bed with a brood of vipers like the BLM, these captains of destiny put everything on the line to lend their name and support to a political movement that has no conscience. It takes no prisoners; only destroys its enemies.
At the risk of trying not to be one of its enemies, these well-heeled corporations and individual players seek to be on the woke side of events, and in whatever lies ahead for the movement. So they fund or lend their credibility, and some of their fortunes, to something that could well destroy them in the end. But who cares?
It reminds me of how the boycotts shook out way back. It seemed popular to cater to boycotters’ whims on one issue, for the time. However, they didn’t seem to get that when they were busy caving to demands, it was their own value and company reputation they were happily putting on the line. Whose skin in what game?
The point was who does that? What sane mindset risks what they personally built and earned by handing it off to young thugs who don’t give a damn about their hard work or its value? Seems stupid to cede control over it to the mob.
But never mind what it does to the real value of your company. Ah, but you momentarily thought you were improving the value of that company. That’s a laugh.
Don’t they realize they are just being used as pawns for the mob’s political agenda? (whatever that is) Thereby reducing the value of a company to the will of thugs and activists. Sound like a good idea?
Of course the correct and only alternative is not to cave in to the thugs in the first place. Consequences to that, you ask? Maybe so but which is better? At least then you retain your own control over it rather than giving it away on extortion schemes.
It’s not like these street thugs are paying anything for the use of your name or company – but only taking or borrowing on it. How does that enhance your interests?
So here they are, once again, doing the same thing. Now there are more of them creating a mob of their own. More well-heeled elites chipping into the coffers, or getting on their knees to apologize to the mob.
That is not any kind of existence I want to have. While they may think there is something noble about it or in it for them, it really is an empty vacuum that will suck the value out of you for having caved to the mob’s whims. It’s a one-way street. You won’t even get their respect from the mob for your generosity. They cannibalize you in a heartbeat and walk away, on to the next cause du jour on their agenda.
So my advice to these well-heeled marks and would-be dupes of destiny is do not allow the mob to weaponize you or your business for its political gain. You might think you are doing something good by getting behind a popular cause but are you? Don’t think that immunizes you from the wrath of the mob in the future. It won’t.
It’s a bit like a protection racket. The minute you don’t pay, suddenly you don’t have any windows or your cash register is busted. You don’t win with the mob, only they do. You will become yesterday’s bread no one wants. They will loot and burn down your business as easily as the corner store, figuratively and literally, for not complying with their demands.
So if you really value your reputation, credibility or business, then why turn it over to the mob? Why allow it to be weaponized or even used against you? Their cause may seem just but so is yours. And no insurance will cover that loss.
