There is a big misconception, primarily among leftists in America, that big corporations are these big bastions of the right-wing agenda. This has been proven time and time again to be false.
The truth is that Corporate America will shill for just about any leftist cause you can imagine — as long as it is perceived that it will boost their profit margins. This is why virtually every big company you can think of changed its social media profile to include some sort of rainbow imagery during Pride Month. The LGBT agenda has become so enshrined in our culture, that corporate entities feel they would lose PR points if they don’t shill in that way.
But coastal America isn’t the only place where these companies make their money. They also do a lot of business in China, which has rightfully been called America’s largest geo-political threat. This means they have to appease the modern culture there, too. If that means snuffing out all support for a free and democratic Hong Kong, then so be it.
As long as the public ignores the fact that the Chinese government oppresses the minority classes leftist love to say they support, those profit margins are secure.
