The Free Enterprise Project Exposes Marxist ‘Woke’ Companies

Marxist elements seek to brainwash our next generations of citizens using the Critical Race Theory [CRT]. They’re using a similar strategy to upend the cornerstone of American democracy — the free enterprise that has given us, as a nation, economic freedom. The focus of the National Center for Public Policy Research’s Free Enterprise Project [FEP] is to expose them.

“We essentially buy shares in ‘woke’ corporations to use our influence as shareholders to combat a lot of [those] woke policies. The whole idea is, instead of just giving up on American business and our institutions, we take the same strategies that the left used to corrupt them and then implement them to kind of bring them back to neutral,” says FEP associate Ethan Peck.

Peck recently joined Rebecca Weber, CEO of the Association of Mature American Citizens, on her Better for America podcast for an in-depth discussion of how the Left seeks to infiltrate corporate America.

Peck explained that FEP uses shareholder activism to challenge corporations that have gone astray, companies such as Twitter, Amazon, Exxon, and Chevron. “We go to [shareholder meetings], we hold these corporations accountable. We talk to CEOs, we question them, we ask them, we put the spotlight on them, and we push them into a corner. And it works, slowly. But the idea is that if we educate the public, we can have the same sort of success in the boardrooms as we had in the classrooms in Virginia, when parents stood up at school boards [to protest the socialist Critical Race Theory] we need investors to stand up to corporate boards.”

He says that socialist teachers use the Critical Race Theory in the classroom to brainwash our children. Woke executives use radical notions of diversity, equity, and inclusion “to push their woke social norms on hiring policies.”

Peck explains that as a shareholder if you own $2,000 or more of a public company’s stock, you are entitled to file a proposal asking the company to run a nondiscrimination audit of its DEI policies. Thus, you can challenge these companies by asking them to prove that their diversity, equity, and inclusion policies are not discriminatory. If a company refuses your request, it proves they know what they are doing is wrong. “They know these hiring policies, hiring people by skin color, hiring people by gender identity and sexual orientation, that these things are against the law, and that they violate the Civil Rights Act of 1964. And so, they’re trying to have it both ways. They’re trying to break the law in secret and kind of push this woke ideology.” 

He said that anybody can challenge a company that seems dodgy when it comes to DEI policies. “I can’t tell you how many times somebody has come up to me and said, I’m very bothered by Amazon and then you do a little digging, and they own Amazon. So, if you’re an owner of Amazon, it’s your fault. Take some personal responsibility. Don’t just blame the world. Go to the shareholder meetings. Ask the CEO questions. You can buy one share in a company and attend the shareholder meeting. For example, this year I attended the American Airlines meeting, and I asked them if their DEI policies apply to hiring pilots. You would hope that when they hire pilots, they just hire by competence because you don’t want the plane crashing. And so, he said, ‘Yeah, absolutely. We definitely apply diversity, equity, and inclusion when we hire pilots.’ It got a lot of media attention. And so, all you need is one share to go into the meeting and pose a question to the CEO.”

The bible says many times that satan rules the world. From what goes on, I believe it. Human behavior is heading fast toward God’s judgement. There are a lot of people who won’t be in a very nice place, including the woke groups, unless they turn from their sin and ask Christ to save them. If they are sincere and their lives reflect obedience to God, they will be saved. God alone is good. But He is also just and judges. End time prediction says it will be hard to find true biblical teaching. It’s happening rapidly.

Yup the anti white male hiring practices at most companies is pretty racist. What is more sickening is that the liberals still talk about white privilege and black oppression.. Remember it is a privilege to be passed up for raises and promotions because a black or Hispanic needs to be promoted.

My son works for Chevron, and he is passed up for leadership positions all the time because he is a white male. They often times hire Black females right out of college who know nothing about the oil field or how anything works. They often ask my son to train them. He’s not allowed to say no, even though he’s 32 and has a lesser degree than them. It makes him infuriated because he was promised that he would get his graduate degree if he stayed with the company. Of course, he hasn’t. They have also cut his salary, because of all the woke projects they have had to put into place due to the green energy initiatives in Biden’s Build Back Better plans.

no it won;t we have 60 years of rioting, looting an burning to do to catch up to the blacks and Hispanics. If whites want fair treatment their are goign to have to do the same things the blacks and Hispanics do all the way down to running in gangs and clubbing people with bricks.

That is what the companies demand and that is what america demands.

Not what America demands! Don’t speak for us if that’s what you think. I’m getting tired of liberals doing the same thing, saying America wants the socialist stuff they’re doing.

Calm down Jeffrey. Don’t give them a reason to falsely label conservatives as extremists.

That would be the very worst thing we could do, and it would play right into their hands.

Slow your roll there Jeffrey. Let’s not lower ourselves to their tactics. Any violence from conservatives would bring far more press than anything they do.

I am seeking a fairly comprehensive list of woke companies so that my dollars will not enable them. So far, I have not seen any lists.

Vivek Ramaswamy, author of @woke, Inc. Has launched an investment fund (I believe it’s called DRLL, to compete with Black Rock, Vanguardd, and other “Woke” financial Giants. I intend to move my retirement funds there.
