WOKE ALERT: 2023 YEAR-IN-REVIEW

This Year’s Lowlights of the Companies Who put Woke Politics Ahead of Their Customers

Bud Light

In what stunned many consumers, the quintessential American beer company and brewing behemoth Anheuser-Busch joined the woke mob in April when they sent specialized cans of Bud Light beer to trans activist Dylan Mulvaney. The can featured the TikTok influencer’s face and printed text that celebrated his first “365 Days of Girlhood.”

Defending the move, Bud Light’s vice president of marketing said that she intended to update the so-called “fratty” and “out of touch” brand. However, this led to an extreme drop in sales as they deeply offended their core customer base.

In pursuit of the far Left’s admiration and a higher Corporate Equality Index score, Anheuser-Busch put their customers on the back burner. Now they’re paying the price.

This summer, Target went all in on “Pride Month.” The retail company partnered with a satanist designer and released a new line of LGBTQ+ merchandise geared toward children, and even babies. While having already earned their Woke membership by selling children’s books that encourage kids to question their gender, Target’s new collection included inclusivity shirts, young boys in rainbow sports bras, and “tuck friendly” bathing suits designed to hide male genitalia.

After significant backlash and a drop in sales, Target decided to walk back their Pride Month collections. However, the retail company didn’t hold out for long and proceeded to hire a Senior LGBTQIA+ Segmentation Strategist and Pride Lead in November who, after being hired, shared an Instagram post saying “Time to whip out the Glitter & Hellfire flamethrowers and rip that old world to shreds darlings.”

Target continues to pursue a woke agenda with no sign of letting up.

 

Bank of America

This year, Consumers’ Research uncovered Bank of America’s embrace of Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) principles and their push for the woke agenda. Bank of America was found to be monitoring your purchases, tracking your carbon emissions, helping fund abortions, and attacking your Second Amendment rights.

There might be no company more prolific for foisting woke ideology on American children than Disney. It was revealed this year that Disney has been quietly inserting a “not-at-all-secret gay agenda” into children’s programming. Even Disney’s Television Animation executive producer, Latoya Raveneau, admitted to “adding queerness” wherever she can. What’s more, Disney’s diversity and inclusion manager, Vivian Ware, was recorded saying that the company removed all gendered greetings such as “ladies and gentleman.”

Though it has a near monopoly on children’s entertainment, Disney’s indoctrination campaign cost the company tens of millions of dollars.

 

BlackRock

BlackRock’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) scam has long been in operation. Led by Chairman and CEO Larry Fink, BlackRock uses U.S. retirement dollars to force a radical agenda on the American people.

However, due to immense shareholder and investor backlash (and $4 billion in losses), BlackRock shut down several ESG funds this year. Recently, Larry Fink, has looked to distance himself from the term ESG, even attempting to rebrand it as conscientious capitalism.  

We can expect to see more pressure on BlackRock in 2024, as Americans continue to fight back against the Woke agenda.
