Nowadays, brands think that political capitulation to the left is what they have to do in order to not only sell products but stay safe from the mobs and out-of-control cancel culture they bring with them, they must virtue signal every chance they get.

Pride month is such a time to signal one’s corporate virtue, and as a result, you see many businesses adopt rainbow-laden versions of their logo as they tweet out support for the LGBT community.

I regret (only a little) to inform them that this isn’t saving them, and at this time the left is already attacking corporations that have taken part in Pride Month for the crime of not doing enough.

Case in point, here’s New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seal clapping over Washington Rep. Pramila Jayapal attempting to claim the scalps of corporations who haven’t done enough.

This week’s guilty pleasure: watching @RepJayapal go down the list to expose phony corporate #Pride rebrands with how much money they’ve given to fund anti-LGBT+ politicians 😌

The hilarious part of all of this is that the left demanded businesses show fealty to their cause or face the trouble of some kind. Denunciation from leftist activist groups will oftentimes come with denunciation from high-profile journalists or celebrities. This is bad PR that any business
