The Republican Party is in a Civil War, not with Democrats but with one another. Legislators on one side are the more traditional conservative branch. The other side’s legislators are the lunatic fringe (QAnon) who believe House Speaker Nancy Pelosi eats babies and CNN’s Anderson Cooper was tortured as a child.
Oddly enough, some of them felt betrayed when Donald Trump lost and have switched their loyalties to over to President Joe Biden. For more on QAnon, go to Cooper’s Sunday night CNN special.
‘UPDATE: @HomeDepot, one of the largest corporate donors to Republican candidates, is suspending donations to Republicans who objected to the electoral college. popular.info/p/three-major- ‘
Those who are White Nationalists used the QAnon followers as did Donald Trump in an organized attack on Congress on January 6. Of course, those in the insurgency are still responsible for their horrid acts against the American symbol of democracy and freedom, the US Capitol Building.
While Speaker Pelosi fights against those who have insinuated themselves into the House through elections, corporations have made a huge difference
Corporate America has stepped in to help Democrats stamp out those who would do harm to America, using their power of the purse. Take Home Depot for example. It is an “extremely conservative company.” Yet, it can suspend donations to Republicans who refused to support President Biden’s win:
‘Previously, @HomeDepot had told us it had not made any decisions about future political giving. For updates and accountability journalism, sign up for the newsletter.’
According to CNN Business:
‘[T]hose corporations, including American Express (AXP), BlueCross BlueShield, Commerce Bank, Dow and Marriott (MAR), comes after a pro-Trump mob breached the US Capitol last Wednesday to fight against the ceremonial counting of electoral votes that confirmed President-elect Joe Biden’s win.’
The article continued, referring to all of the Republicans (147) who voted against the Certification of the Electoral Votes on January 6. It specifically named “Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley, Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville:”
‘147 Republicans voted against certification of the electoral votes in a joint session of Congress last Wednesday evening. They included Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley, Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville, among hundreds of other Congress members.’
The idea is that corporations have decided to distance themselves from these specific Republicans indicates “how toxic they are right now:”
‘Hard to overstate how significant this @HomeDepot move is. They are an extremely conservative company. The fact that its (sic) moving to create distance between itself and these Republicans shows how toxic they are right now.’
Twitter world went nuts when they saw Legum’s tweet about Home Depot. Americans shot back, fully aware their donation power has immense power. Take a look below:
