Apple logo CEO Tim CookShould corporations have a diverse board of directors and not a bunch of "yes" men?

"What our proposal seeks to do is to increase the ideological diversity of the top of Apple's leadership," says Justin Danhof of the conservative National Center for Public Policy Research.

Danhof, who confronts powerful, liberal CEOs in front of their shareholders, is currently eyeing a battle with mega-corporation Apple, currently run by CEO Tim Cook (pictured above) and a board of directors that include Al Gore and Disney CEO Bog Iger. 

The view of National Center, he says, is that a corporation such as Apple, which follows a "delineated ideological perspective," fails its investors because its leaders all think the same way and no one is asking critical questions.

Danhof, Justin (Nat'l Ctr for Public Policy Research)"We mean the true word diversity," says Danhof, "which is diversity of thought, belief, your ethos..."

According to Danhof, the tech-giant is asking the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to remove his organization's shareholder proposal from its proxy statement, denying investors the right to even consider it.

"Apple's specific claim is that they do not understand what we mean when we say ideological diversity," Danhof tells OneNewsNow, "and therefore the investors won't be able to understand it and comprehend the proposal. So they shouldn't be forced to vote on a proposal that they are too stupid to understand, in the words of Apple."

Apple has not responded to OneNewsNow's request for comment.
