Political Strategist Reminds Americans They Have the Power of the Purse

Political Strategist Reminds Americans They Have the Power of the Purse

(TheRedWire.com) – In late October, Twitter censored a New York Post article highlighting the Biden family’s troubling business dealings. Since then, Big Tech has cascaded into full-blown censorship in the wake of riots that overtook Capitol Hill on January 6. They’ve blacklisted President Donald Trump, his campaign, and businesses. Additionally, companies are withholding campaign donations to Republicans who challenged Electoral College ballots. Now, they are censoring conservatives broadly. One strategist says enough is enough and has an answer to the growing problem.

If They Censor Conservatives, Censor Back

One time strategist and Trump advisor Steve Bannon recently said if companies can censor conservatives unfairly, turnabout is fair play. Money is the most significant vote of all. Every time someone spends money with a company, they are supporting that company and its actions.

Aside from purchasing necessities, Bannon said the MAGA world should cease giving dollars for the products and services of companies participating in the censorship of conservative voices. Big corporations may have a lot of money. However, they ultimately get it from the people who purchase their products or services.

How are Conservatives Being Censored?

In recent days, new forms of censorship against conservatives are on the rise. At first, social media sites’ main target was the president. However, over the last ten days, they’ve expanded their efforts to include any conservatives expressing concerns related to the heavily disputed 2020 election.

Then, it spiraled as Democrats falsely accused some in the GOP of conspiring with the president to create sedition. Just days after the January 6 riots on Capitol Hill, book publisher Simon & Schuster canceled its contract with Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) in retaliation for his challenge to Electoral College ballots in Pennsylvania.

Deutsche Bank and Signature Bank jumped on the bandwagon with their announcement that they were canceling long-standing accounts with Donald Trump. In a similar move, the PGA is moving its championship golf tournaments from Trump-owned golf courses.

Additionally, Coca-Cola, Marriott, AT&T, Walmart, General Motors, Comcast, JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, and Morgan Stanley are suspending political donations to Republicans.

Since businesses think it’s okay to suppress conservatives’ Constitutional rights, Bannon is asking Americans to reconsider their relationship with many big companies. Will shareholders mind if they lose money over political differences?

We shall see.
