Sohrab Amari: The Corporate-GOP Divorce Will Be Painful in the Short-Term, but Rewarding in the Long Term

I just want to get to where we can start the reckoning.


November's election revealed that the class realignment of our two parties is solidifying. Democrats have increasingly emerged as the party of upscale suburbs, of Silicon Valley and Hollywood and Wall Street, of the owners of capital and the professionals who service them. The GOP, meanwhile, is trending toward a multiracial working-class party, preferred by those who generally make their living by toil.

So why are conservatives fretting about corporate America cutting off the GOP, a process merely accelerated by last week's (disgraceful) mob assault on the Capitol? Did they think building a working-class party was going to be painless? That they could mouth pro-worker rhetoric while continuing to ignore workers' concerns on issues like immigration and wages? A country-club party with blue-collar decor?

That jig was going to be up at some point. The sooner, the better -- for an underrepresented American working class and for Republicans who take the realignment seriously.

Megacorporations using their money to strip the rights from citizens are begging citizens to strip them of their money.

Progressive corporate tax rates, for example, would be a major equalizer.

cOrPorAtIonZ arE OuR FreNz, part 1: the Mattel corporation are your frenz.

"Come out barbie, let's go party."

Social media is swooning over images of Barbie buddying up to a doll of an iconic fashion designer and LGBTQ ally Aimee Song. The pics first surfaced in 2017 as part of a campaign to raise LGBTQ awareness, but went viral recently with Twitter rooting for the same-sex pairing.

Barbie creator Mattel had originally devised the collaboration as a way to promote Song’s ubiquitous "Love Wins" shirts, which raise funds to help LGBTQ youth in crisis. As such, the photos show Barbie and a plastic facsimile of Song sitting together on a bed, and other relationship-like activities, while sporting her signature couture.

cOrPorAtIonZ arE OuR FreNz, part 2: The Cadbury Cream Egg company is your frenz.

The company, which makes a candy most associated with the most important Christian holiday, and which is mainly marketed to children (as all store-bought candies are), will launch an ad campaign featuring (content warning) gay men french kissing with a Cadbury egg between their tongues.

Order them in time for Easter, yo! Let Christ know that H8 has no home here!!!

cOrPorAtIonZ arE OuR FreNz, part 3: Disney and Lucasfilm are your frenz. Disney and Lucasfilm are super-proud to have insinuated even more trans propaganda into your children's Star Wars books.

He has a non-binary black character whose pronouns are "they/them," to indoctrinate your children:

"I wanted them to be able to say their own pronouns and not have other people gender them and decide their gender from the outside. I wanted them to be clearly a human and not an alien ’cause in this particular case that was important," he said.

He concluded, "And I wanted to show canonically Han and Lando respecting the they/them pronouns without missing a beat because they’re heroes. And real heroes respect people's pronouns."


These people obviously have too much money, because they're spending billions to indoctrinate children -- a goal far outside their corporate charter -- and taking stockholder's money and setting it on fire as a tithe to their Strange New Gods of Wokeism.

Progressive corporate tax rates and a slashing of tax concessions and business expenses for media companies should help them refocus on the business of business.

And:

338 Cernovich has a good idea. Trump should issue an Executive order banning products derived from slave labor. Make Biden rescind that ban so his buddies at Walmart, Apple, etc can make those dollar dollar bills, y'all.
