Red Bull CEO Dietrich Mateschitz has reportedly canned executives with the energy drink company who were pushing for leftist social justice training for “diversity and inclusion” to be provided to employees.
Stefan Kozak, the former North America chief executive, and Amy Taylor, the former North America president and chief marketing officer, are no longer with Red Bull after they attempted to inject liberal dogma into the workplace.
Additionally, Red Bull axed or dissolved culture and entertainment teams in the UK, Austria and Canada. They also stopped their Red Bull Music Festival and Red Bull Presents, the brand’s two major cultural projects. This came after Mateschitz allegedly said there would be no major layoffs in 2020.
Mateschitz, an Austrian billionaire who co-founded the energy drink company in 1984, is an outspoken Donald Trump supporter who has spoken out against the evils of political correctness.
“I don’t think he’s as much of an idiot as he’s made out to be,” Mateschitz said when he was asked about Trump in 2017, adding that he “simply needs time” to put America on its correct course.
“When you speak to Americans you often hear that they’re essentially happy to have a new administration. There was plenty to question about the previous one,” he added.
This comes in a response to a letter that was signed by 300 Red Bull employees bemoaning how the corporation wasn’t doing enough to promote the cause of racial justice.
“It is undeniable that many of the spaces Red Bull exists in and prioritizes, like hip-hop, dance, basketball, and electronic music, are born out of Black communities and Black culture. We absolutely cannot continue in these spaces, or continue to profess celebration of Black culture, if we have no intention of supporting the Black community while they are being treated unjustly and murdered in our streets,” the letter read.
“As we say nothing, we are abandoning the communities we claim to support and foster in their time of greatest need,” the letter continued. “Absence during a time that demands action, reveals purported support as nothing more than exploitation.”
Kozak expressed his sympathy to the views expressed in the letter addressed to Taylor and himself.
“I share these views and I applaud those who peacefully and courageously have made their voices heard,” he said in response.
However, Mateschitz put his foot down in response to Kozak and Taylor’s apparent sympathies for the far-left cause. He is not letting the social justice poison infect his business. It does not look as if the “go woke, go broke” axiom will not be applying to Red Bull any time soon.
Tennessee High School Principal Suspended for Speaking Against Big Tech Censorship
Welcome to an Orwellian hellworld.
The principal of a Tennessee high school has been suspended from his duties for daring to criticize the unprecedented censorship enacted by Big Tech companies against President Donald Trump earlier this month.
Principal Barton Thorne of Cordova High School in Memphis had been speaking in a teleconference in which he condemned the riot at the US Capitol. Throne also slammed the censorship that followed the event, comparing Twitter and Facebook’s censorship to Joseph McCarthy’s sham accusations in the 1950’s.
“There have been times even in American history where a small group of people decided what you could hear. You think about “McCarthyism. If you don’t know about that, you can Google that or talk to your Social Studies teacher,” said Thorne.
“It’s what’s going on with Twitter and Facebook and Google and Apple, and their decision as private companies to filter and to decide what you, you hear and know about.”
Thorne was almost immediately suspended by the Shelby County School district, pending an official “review” of his totally innocuous comments. Thorne later drafted an email apology, bowing for his transgression against the authority of tech oligarchs.
The American education used to instill the values of free speech and political liberty in those it taught. Fidelity to such concepts have been cast to the wayside, sidelined in favor of indoctrination into the American elite’s racial caste system and liberal ideology.
