According to Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., on a new episode of “woke left” the “ordinary voters,” and corporations are using their power to silence the voices of “The Ben Domenech Podcast.”
“I think the ‘woke left’ and the corporations, the woke capitalists, are used to a situation where they can use their power to drown out the voices of ordinary voters and force their agenda anyway,” Hawley told Domenech on Tuesday.
According to Hawley, these entities will “ostracize” anyone who “sticks up their head” and disagrees with them, labeling them as bigots, racists, and other derogatory terms.
Hawley chastised large corporations and associations for using their deep pockets to coerce states into adopting their policies, threatening to take their money and establish headquarters in a more agreeable U.S. state.
“I believe people are now looking for people who will say, “No, I’m not going along with that.” I’m willing to stand up to these woke capitalists and their left-wing government allies and say, “No, I’m not going to be blackmailed by you.” “Hawley stated. “You can call me all the names you want, but I’m going to take a stand and I’m going to stick with it.”
Hawley hypothesized that this stance on corporations was likely a large part of why a large number of Republicans continue to support former President Donald Trump.
“I think that that’s just a different standard in leadership,” Hawley added.
Some of the corporations that Hawley was most concerned about were those in the technology sector.
Many of his constituents were concerned about Big Tech “chasing their kids around the internet,” their children being followed by pedophiles online, and their speech being censored or shut down, according to Hawley.
“I don’t I don’t make any apologies at all for my effort to hold Big Tech accountable and to break them up, which is, I think, what absolutely needs to happen,” Hawley said.
