Prominent corporations from around the world are bankrolling the “defund the police” movement, a Daily Caller News Foundation review found. Companies including Cisco, Clif Bar, Degree, DoorDash, DropBox, H&M and Pokemon announced donations to organizations that seek to defund the police. Black Lives Matter Global Network and Color of Change are open about their desire to defund the police. Both organizations have received an outpouring of corporate donations in recent months. Dozens of corporations from around the world have collectively donated millions of dollars to left-wing organizations that advocate for defunding America’s police departments, a Daily Caller News Foundation review found.

Companies including Microsoft, Intel and Airbnb have donated to Black Lives Matter Global Network and Color of Change, both of which want to defund police departments across the country.

Color of Change is leading a national petition campaign demanding elected officials “defund the police, and invest in communities now!”

“Policing is a violent institution that must end,” Color of Change President Rashad Robinson said after the Minneapolis City Council voted to “dismantle” its police department.

“We imagine a country where there is enough money to educate our children, care for our sick and feed those who are financially unstable,” Robinson continued. “Defunding the police allows for this vision.”

HERE’S A PARTIAL LIST

Clif Bar announced a $100,000 donation split between two groups, including Color of Change, in a June 1 Facebook post.

Cisco announced on June 1 that it was splitting a $5 million donation across four social justice groups, including both Color of Change and Black Lives Matter.

RITZ Crackers announced on June 4 that the company and its sister brands — OREO, Trident and Chips Ahoy! — had donated $500,000 to the NAACP and Black Lives Matter.

Degree pledged $100,000 to Black Lives Matter, the deodorant company announced in a June 1 tweet.

Food delivery service DoorDash donated $500,000 to Black Lives Matter, along with donations to other racial justice groups, the company announced in a June blog post.

Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield and his wife announced they would make a $700,000 donation to Color of Change, Black Lives Matter and a host of other organizations in June, Protocol reported. The couple also said they would match $300,000 in employee gifts to organizations.

Clothing brand Vans Inc. announced a $50,000 donation to Color of Change in June, according to the Orange County Business Journal.

Raid their offices and warn them it would be hypocritical to call the police.

My feelings about BLM:

Lives Matter!
If you need a color in
front of those words,
YOU are a racist.

Muh capitalism! Businesses and corporations are not automatically the good guys. Bigger ones are usually the opposite. The days of simply being pro capitalism being enough are over. We are way past economic arguments.

Already on my do not buy list where feasible. National name brands fund the LEFT media.

Whether are not they are funding the marxist BLM, they are already funding the LEFT media.

My shopping cart is always 90-100% generic/local brands.

The march to marxism cannot be stopped without defunding the marxist promoting LEFT media.

In political campaigns while the use of Social Electronic Formats are useful in presenting political positions. Relying solely on using those venues is a mistake because of their SEF content limitations and media bias .

Consideration of the use of reprinted material including handouts and flyers such as of articles in FR and the planning of area saturation distribution known as “blitzing” in the targeted area is essential of one wants to win.This one will fit in a post card size when printed up

Is Mike Savage now allowed to travel to London, England if he chose to? Last I heard, the Muslim Mayor of London put Mike on a list of people who could not enter due to the public discussion of ‘uncomfortable issues’.

I used to listen to Savage years ago, but got fed up with his foodie segments and left for more political talk pastures. He is extremely entertaining when he goes on a rant though. I pretty much like Levine for the same reasons.

I was an occasional listener until Savage decided to devote most of a program on how AR-15s are (paraphrasing) "killing machines", nobody "needs" them and that they should be banned.

He insulted and (IIRC) hung up on sincere callers who wanted to discuss the issue and provide some info on just how AR-15s aren't different from many other common rifles.

So, sorry that the America-hating companies are dissing Mister Savage, but I avoid the anti Second Amendment Savage as well, just for different reasons. .

In the past couple of weeks, two young white people here in North Carolina have been senselessly murdered by black perps. If it turns out that BLM rhetoric which dehumanizes white people had any influence at all on the perps, these companies must be made to own these murders.
