It’s a funny thing that, despite the fact that leftists love to hate on corporations, said corporations tend to shill for just about everything that they believe in.
Some of the most glaring examples are on full display right now as just about every blue check mark on Twitter changes its profile picture to something with a rainbow in it. Coca-cola went above and beyond on Instagram by posting the flag of asexuality — because apparently every single sexual orientation you can think of (except heterosexuality) needs its own identifying flag.
Now, we get it — companies like to make money, and convincing people that they are warm and cozy is one way to do that. The thing is that this overt corporate virtue signaling is actually starting to backfire. It turns out that some leftists don’t appreciate feeling this appreciated, and see moves like this as patronizing. Believe it or not, we actually see where they are coming from on this.
So, if you weren’t aware — it’s pride week. Don’t worry: if you forget, someone you buy something from will probably remind you without being asked.
