How Far Left Infiltrated Corporate America and What Can Be Done About It

The radical left has infiltrated corporate America and is using big business to promote a political agenda. 

Justin Danhof, general counsel for the National Center for Public Policy Research and director of the Free Enterprise Project, is a member of a new coalition called Stop Corporate Tyranny.

Danhof joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss the ways in which Stop Corporate Tyranny is working to end the left’s influence on American companies, and how you can be a part of the movement for change. 

We also cover these stories: 

  • The National Guard will increase its presence in Minnesota after riots broke out following a police shooting outside Minneapolis.
  • Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signs significant election reforms into law.
  • Dr. Anthony Fauci says it’s possible to be infected with COVID-19 after receiving the vaccine.

Big business is advocating against traditional values, conservative values at a record pace.

Well, fast forward to last year for the very first time in the Gallup polling, Gallup does polling on cultural lanes every year, for the very first time ever big business was underwater with conservatives.

So we’ve been working for about a year-plus to try and build a coalition of conservatives that are willing to engage with big business and fight back against woke capital, fight back against companies that are taking actions that are anathema to conservative and traditional values.
