145 Corporate Oligarchs Call for Gun Control

Published

on

The New York Times reports that a group of top business executives called on the U.S. Senate to pass gun control.

“Doing nothing about America’s gun violence crisis is simply unacceptable and it is time to stand with the American public on gun safety,” wrote the CEOs from 145 companies, which included Twitter, Uber and Bloomberg LP.

This letter was shared with the Times.

The corporate big wigs are now demanding that the Senate pass the political establishment’s favorite gun control schemes such as universal background checks and “red flag” laws.

“The Senate must follow the House’s lead by passing bipartisan legislation that would update the background checks law, helping to keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them, in an effort to save lives,” the CEOs wrote.

They added,”Background checks on all gun sales are a common-sense solution with overwhelming public support and are a critical step toward stemming the gun violence epidemic in this country.”

After three mass shootings in Austin, the pressure has been dialed up on Congress to pass gun control legislation. Corporate America has played a major role in these calls for gun control during the last few years.

This letter is one of the most notable developments in Corporate America’s campaign against guns. It’s also a sign of the increased politicization of all facets of society.

Some polls claims that gun control is no longer a divisive issue. A Washington Post–ABC News poll that was unveiled earlier this week found that 89 percent of respondents, which includes 83 percent of Republicans, support universal background checks.

However, poll numbers and even the questions that they deal with do not always accurately portray popular sentiment and also do not show how enthusiastic people are about a certain policy proposal. So, it’s not inevitable that gun control will pass.

Earlier this year, the House passed a universal background check bill but it is now stagnating in the Republican-controlled Senate.

In the wake of recent shootings, stores like Wal-Mart and Kroger have discontinued the sale of firearms and changed open carry policies at their stores.

White Student Government Leaders Resign from Their Positions Because of White Guilt

Published

on

The President and the Vice President of the University of Connecticut’s Undergraduate Student Government recently stepped down from their posts.

And they did so because of white guilt.

VP Alex Ose stepped down last week, according to a report from The Daily Campus. She alluded to “the climate and incidents of racial injustice across the country and at the university.” But as Greg Piper of the College Fix noted she did so “without elaborating on what’s wrong at UConn (or why she can’t address the perceived problem as an elected official)”.

Ose stated:

I feel that it is my duty to step down from my position to make space for BIPOC (black, indigineous and people of color) voices to truly rise and be heard. It is my responsibility to make space, not to create an echo.

Ose also called on the rest of the white members of the student government to resign. She challenged her white colleagues to think about the “intent” they have in holding leadership positions and consider making space for BIPC students.

President Joshua Crow wasn’t as radical when he resigned.

“It is important in this time to ensure that marginalized groups have the platforms they need,” he declared, according to The Daily Campus.

Funny enough, Piper pointed out that “Crow’s temporary replacement is … another white guy, Will Schad.”

None of what we see taking place at UConn is occurring in a vacuum. It’s all a part of the cultural revolution that has taken place since the death of George Floyd.

Since the Right has largely put up a feckless defense against the Left as of lately, such groveling to PC mobs will continue at breakneck speeds.

America needs a real opposition to these cultural radicals.
