The created Money Monster Mitch McConnell finally turned him on
Samuel Colm / Getty Mitch McConnell thinks money is a speech if the company doesn’t really think it’s a person or the company in question doesn’t speak his language. Instead, he warned them to “leave politics” because “they have serious consequences when they become far-left mob vehicles.” Large Georgian employers eventually responded to Georgia’s voter oppression law and tried to move away from his statement because “I didn’t say it well.” Mitch is angry. By Lester Maddox. In Republican circles, companies have come up with controversial proposals that all Americans should have the right and opportunity to vote. And McConnell didn’t apply for it because he had fought a war for the cash of an unregulated company for the past three decades. The “right” to destroy our democracy. As anyone who has seen his incredibly devastating career knows, he meant welcoming these companies to give Republicans a cash wheelbarrow and Americans. Improves life and, in fact, he is the horizon of charismatic events. The Christian right-wing mastermind behind Citizens United says it’s good for democracy. McConnell’s Senate career can be seen as a homage to Seinfeld. Except for power. Mitch was like a “candid and fair CEO” as long as the company paid and shared his favorite opinions (low taxes, deregulation, free trade). The problem is that as our culture begins to change, so do our companies. Some companies were suddenly attacked by leaders who believed in crazy concepts such as LGBTQ rights, equal pay for equal work, and racial equality. Or, at least, I knew that I would publicly support these norms to appeal to my customer base. For these issues, as far as McConnell is concerned, you can spend the night, but just put a check on the nightstand before you go home. To be fair, McConnell was described by Alec McGillis as “The Cynic: The Political Education of the Cynic: The Political Education of the Cynic: The Political Education of Mitch McConnell. In 1973, McConnell was partially public. By 1987, Senator McConnell had “empowered Congress to limit independent spending on campaigning and the use of personal funds by candidates.” He sponsored a constitutional amendment. Their own race. “(McConnell at the time was far from wealthy) By 1990, he was pushing for a ban on the Political Action Commission. This happened to be a time when the Democrats dominated the US House of Representatives with iron walls for nearly 40 years, so PACS gave more to the Democrats than the Republicans. It happened to McConnell in his first Senate race in 1984. The incumbent Democrat Walter “Dee” Huddleston, who he expelled, was endorsed by PACS for McConnell’s regrets. But when Mitch masters the art of shakedown, that changes. He became opposed to all election funding reforms, challenged the FEC’s ruling, and submitted an Amikas brief to challenge the donation limits that could end in front of the Supreme Court. Thus, he was the driving force behind Citizens United, but if you think this was taken over by his thoughts on the actual corporate speech, something that comes out of the mouth rather than a wallet, think again. McConnell also knows how to use the threat from an article he wrote about then Senator Whip McConnell in 2004. When a group of Republican senators signed an election fund reform bill in the late 90s, McConnell, who is in the position of NRSC chairman, advised them that they could not expect election support from the Commission unless they changed positions. did. At least one, Senator Sam Brownback (R-Kan.), Did after being warned by McConnell. Later, in 1999, when the Economic Development Commission (CED), an industry group representing large corporations, announced support for a ban on soft money, McConnell raged at the NRSC letterhead and the leaders of companies belonging to CED. I wrote a letter. He urged them to leave the organization, saying the group’s “full campaign to eradicate private sector participation in politics.” “I hope you resign from CED,” he scribbled at the bottom of the first copy. Many recipients of the letter saw the implicit threat that their company would be disadvantaged by Congress unless they withdrew from CED and stopped supporting reform efforts. Or other such principles. This is not the case. McConnell is fine with the My Pillow guy yelling at Goya’s CEO in favor of coups and sedition. However, he has major problems with corporate actors who speak in favor of voting rights. Because, as 2020 showed, McConnell’s party is mainly talking to Fox News’ “I can’t get up” demographics, rejecting transgender banned America and taking your position. They are not the people who support and testify to the fetus. You need an educated workforce to make things. This means being increasingly democratic and socially tolerant. And they have to appeal to consumers with disposable income who actually buy things. Needless to say, these people tend not to live in what you call “hannity demographics.” Therefore, Mitch doesn’t want these companies to talk. But, as Georgia has proved, they’re going to go anyway. Because the alternative is to keep customers away, there are no crazy Republican tweets suggesting that Major League Baseball is a derivative of the “China virus” that forces players to read doubleheaders. Will change. What this means is that Mitch is finally reaping the whirlwind of corporate speech that was keen to unleash our politics when it benefited him and his party.
