(TheConservativeNews.org) – The debate around cancel culture has been a constant theme in our media for years now, and it shows no signs of letting up. This year, The Mandalorian actress Gina Carano became the latest victim of the trend. Her social media posts got her sacked by Disney. One prominent Republican spoke out against this trend.
On Monday, April 5, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) took aim at the “corporate CEOs of America” in the context of the ongoing debate around Georgia’s new voting law. Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines have both criticized the legislation, claiming it disadvantages minorities. MLB went as far as to pull its 2021 All-Star Game from the state.
Speaking at a Kentucky news conference, McConnell criticized these moves, advising corporate America to “stay out of politics.” He stated large companies would face repercussions if they became a “vehicle for far-Left mobs.”
McConnell reiterated this message via Twitter later on Monday.
Mitch McConnell clearly has a point here. Big corporations are unelected entities; we can’t continue to allow them to shape our political and social discourse.
