Top Republicans are slamming American corporations’ growing propensity for “woke” politics — hitting American CEOs for using their influence to promote the “political agenda of today’s Democratic party.”
Speaking to The Hill Monday, Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) lambasted the growing “wokeness” in corporations nationwide, as well as the lack of Republican leaders compared to the number of Democrats.
“If you look at the CEOs of the Fortune 100, there are very, very few who you could even plausibly characterize as right of center,” Cruz told the outlet.
“They are almost uniformly Democrat,” he continued. “And they have made the decision to enlist their companies in the political agenda of today’s Democratic party, which is controlled right now by the radical left.”
“For the past several years, I have been making the case that far too many American companies were prioritizing short-term financial windfalls at the expense of America’s families, communities and national security,”
