Chick-fil-A made a controversial move last week when it decided to break ties with the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
The Christian segment of their consumer base was obviously angered by this move.
However, Daniel Greenfield of Frontpage Mag reported that they shouldn’t have “if they had been paying attention to CFA’s corporate structure.”
The Chick-fil-A Foundation was making donations to these organizations. CFA’s Executive Director is Rodney D. Bullard, a former White House fellow and Assistant US Attorney. Bullard then became its Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility.
Although he was a fellow in the Bush administration, he was an Obama donor and recently donated to Hilary Clinton’s campaign during his time at Chick-fil-A.
Chick-fil-A’s charitable giving is branded as a form of social responsibility. However, there is a difference between corporate social responsibility and charitable giving. According to Greenfield, “corporate social responsibility is a leftist endeavor to transform corporations into the political arms of radical causes.”
Like many corporations, Chick-fil-A branded its charitable giving as a form of social responsibility. Bullard became its Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility. Unlike charity, “corporate social responsibility is a leftist endeavor to transform corporations into the political arms of radical causes.”
Earlier this year, Business Insider interviewed Bullard where he stated that the CFA Foundation had a “higher calling than any political or cultural war.” Nevertheless, the CFA Foundation ended up advancing the Left’s cultural war. Unlike charitable giving, corporate social responsibility is about virtue signaling not about helping other people.
The CFA Foundation has funded leftist organizations like Atlanta’s Westside Future Fund. The WFF received a cool $1.7 million from the CFA Foundation, whereas the Salvation Army received $115,000 for its Angel Tree program which gives gifts for the poor during the holiday season. For leftist activists, this donation to the Salvation Army was simply too much, which motivated them to protest.
The CFA Foundation also donated $100,000 to Sustainable Atlanta and $10,000 to Saris to Suits. The latter organization’s mission is to “advance women’s empowerment, education, gender equality, and social justice.”
Donations were also made to UNICEF ($25,000), the Andrew Young Foundation ($75,000), the Latino Leaders Network ($20,000), Harvard Debate Diversity Network ($20,000), King Center for Nonviolent Social Change ($45,000), and the Friends of Refugees ($5,000).
Although Chick-fil-A has built a reputation for championing culturally conservative values, it’s becoming apparent that it is lurching leftward like practically every other institution in America.
Conservatives will have to adapt to this new reality and start fighting in the corporate sector to keep further business institutions from falling into the cultural Left’s hands.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
