WOKE corporations have recently been copping a beating from consumer boycotts, but whether or not they are learning a lesson from this has yet to be seen.
What has emerged, even in mainstream media, is confirmation of the source of woke corporatism – the UN-World Economic Forum alliance and the incredible concentration of financial control in the hands of Larry Fink, founder of Black Rock and member of the WEF’s board of trustees. Black Rock in 2009 became the world’s largest financial management firm with major shareholdings in every global corporation.
A highly informative article recently run by the New York Post, quoted James Lindsay, a political podcaster, who said the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) that administers the Fink-WEF scheme to push woke agendas within the CEI (Corporate Equality Index) is “like an extortion racket, like the Mafia”. CEI is also part of the ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) ranking.
Essentially what happens is that HRC monitors all corporations (at least the ones that count) for their adherence to woke “equality, inclusiveness, sustainability” etc programs and awards them points up to 100.
But, notes Lindsay: “It (the woke mafia) doesn’t just sit back passively either. HRC sends representatives to corporations every year telling them what kind of stuff they have to make visible at the company. They give them a list of demands and if they don’t follow through there’s a threat that you won’t keep your CEI score.”
ThePost also quotes entrepreneur and Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, author of Woke Inc.: Inside America’s Social Justice Scam. “The big fund managers like BlackRock all embrace this ESG orthodoxy in how they apply pressure to top corporate management teams and boards and they determine, in many cases, executive compensation and bonuses and who gets re-elected or re-appointed to boards. They can make it very difficult for you if you don’t abide by their agendas.”
There’s not a lot online about Fink’s background, apart from the fact that he was born in LA to a shoe retailer father and English professor mother and has always been a Democrat. Given his academic mother, the chances are Fink was schooled in good old-fashioned New Left neo-Marxism. Some might attribute his leftist ideology, wealth and power to his Jewishness, traits often associated with Anglo-American Jews – or at least those associated with the Democratic Party.
More to the point is blogger Leo Hohmann, who exposes Fink as the literal pusher of the idea that corporations must foster cultural Marxism as part of a global behaviour change campaign. That idea in itself shows Fink’s depths of delusion. Hohmann picked up a key quote from Fink posted in a New York Times interview: “Behaviors are going to have to change and this is one thing we are asking companies, you have to force behaviors and at BlackRock, we are forcing behaviors,” Fink said.
Then in a letter to key global CEOs in 2018 Fink wrote: “Every company and every industry will be transformed by the transition to a net-zero world. The question is, will you lead, or will you be led?” Fink claimed “society is demanding that companies, both public and private, serve a social purpose” and warned that if a company doesn’t engage with the community and have a sense of purpose “it will ultimately lose the license to operate from key stakeholders.”
Hohmann notes that Fink tried to backpedal on these veiled threats after “receiving some serious blowback” and on January 24, 2022, told CNBC “I’m not trying to strong arm CEOs to adopt my worldview.” Yeah, sure you don’t slinky Finky, but even CNBC appeared to see through that sleazy lie. “Fink sent a letter last week to the chief executives of the world’s largest public companies, calling for them to help improve society or risk losing support from BlackRock, which just surpassed $6 trillion in total assets under management in the latest quarter,” CNBC reported.
Fink of course, being part of the WEF top tier, also associates with another notorious WEF nutcase, the homosexual “prophet” Yuval Harari, a Jew who actually wants to create a master race of cyborgs, presumably to rule over all the smart city inmates. One might justifiably call Harari a neo-Nazi Jew. Is it any wonder there are “anti-semites” among the Cairns News readers and elsewhere, but don’t blame them all – New York Post’s star investigative reporter incidentally, is Australian Jewish journalist Miranda Devine, who hammers the Biden crime family.
Meanwhile the so-called Human Rights Commission is riddled with Democrats like Kelley Robinson, an organiser for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, who was rewarded with the HRC presidential seat. HRC is of course heavily funded by the Soros Foundation.
Slinky Finky also sits on the board of directors for the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the notorious US foreign policy dictators for the past 75 years and the board of the International Rescue Committee, one of nine private agencies that funnel refugees into North America and Europe “mostly from countries that CFR-trained diplomats and Pentagon apparatchiks help to destabilize with wars and revolutions”, Hohmann notes.
It will take a lot to derail this globalist cabal and their hangers-on. Florida Governor Ron De Santis pulled his state’s $US2 billion out of Black Rock, a significant amount but nothing that would send Black Rock broke. It may take another Trump term to do some serious damage to the globalist machine. We can perhaps pray against this cabal in the meantime, and certainly keep spreading the message that is becoming too well known for the cabal’s comfort.
