The director of the Free Enterprise Project is not completely surprised by a new Gallup poll showing Republicans' satisfaction with the size and influence of major corporations is down 26 points to a record-low 31% for that party.
Justin Danhof of the National Center for Public Policy Research recently told the "Washington Watch with Tony Perkins" program that his "only surprise" is that it took Republicans and conservatives so long to wake up and realize that corporate America and large businesses are now steadily aligned with the political left "on nearly any single category that you can think of," but specifically when it comes to culture.
For example, many corporations today fund Planned Parenthood, and many of them are against religious freedom.
"And not just vocally, but in the courts, legally fighting against your religious freedom issues," Danhof continued. "So, yeah, the only shock to me is that it took conservatives this long to wake up."
He says last year held "so many compelling storylines that conservatives just could not look away from," including the violence and destruction in cities such as Minneapolis and Portland.
"When Black Lives Matter was burning Portland, was burning Minneapolis, Amazon and Pepsi were sending the Black Lives Matter organization massive checks," Danhof explained. "Disney and Apple are trying to dictate morality here in the United States by saying this is a white supremacist nation, that our institutions are founded on white supremacy, that we all must bend our knees to Black Lives Matter. Yet the hypocrisy just smacks you in the face."
He pointed out that those same companies all do business with the Communists in China, "where in one province we have slave labor that is in the supply chains of many of these same companies, including companies like Nike."
Danhof also criticized the Chamber of Commerce for endorsing former union leader-turned Mayor Marty Walsh (D-Boston) and Neera Tanden, President Biden's picks to run the Department of Labor White House Office of Management and Budget, respectively.
"Tanden ran the Center for American Progress for about a decade, one of the most left-wing think tanks in the nation," Danhof fumed. "Americans, again, conservatives are waking up."
