Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 15, 2021

June is Pride month, and many US corporations are advertising their support for the LGBTQ+ community. A new study, however, has found that 25 companies otherwise eager to wave the rainbow flag have donated more than $10m to anti-LGBTQ+ federal and state politicians over the past two years.

Why do some people still act surprised that corporations donate to opposing sides?

They hedge their bets. Always.

Yeah what's wrong with supporting fascists as long as they're also supporting NOT-fascists?

"Why do some people still act surprised that corporations donate to opposing sides?"

Well, if this place has taught us anything, it's that some people get really bent out of shape over hypocrisy.

Also, it's not entirely clear they are in fact donating to opposing sides, unless I missed that in the article. Slapping a rainbow sticker on your logo isn't a donation. It's just crass marketing.

Next thing your going to tell me is that Trump was corrupt.

Anyone can read the article to learn some of the names of these corporation who appear to be two-faced donators.

However, it's my opinion that this single one issue isn't the only reason for their donations. Corporations have many other legislative irons in the fire to justify their financial support for a particular state or federal congress critter.

Asking for a boycott is an overkill.

They don't care about us. They just exploit us for financial gain. That's why I abhor Pride events. They are too commercialized for my tastes.

Corporations are people my friend. They have interests and sometimes these conflict with each other. Best to just donate to everybody. They can afford it. Consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds. Corporations are geniuses so they don't care about consistency. Capiche.
