In the wake of the Dobbs decision from the Supreme Court of the United States, which overturned Roe v. Wade and returned the abortion issue to the individual states, hundreds of Amazon employees have begun to organize in protest — and they want their employer to join them.
In an open letter , which has since been leaked to the public, these employees make several demands on Amazon executives that they believe will restore “the basic human right” of unrestricted abortion access.
Though some of the demands are predictable — denounce the decision publicly, organize company-sponsored protests, fund organizations “working to expand abortion access” — others seem less concerned with the cause itself and more interested in diminishing executive power in favor of organized labor.
For example, the letter asks the company to grant all employees “the space and time to grieve, express their frustrations, and protest against this assault on our rights,” ostensibly on the company’s dime.
It also asks Amazon to “[e]xpand remote work options to allow employees the option to relocate to states” which will permit continued abortion access and to “[c]ease operations in states that enact” abortion restrictions. Since Amazon has already opened dozens of major warehouses in red states and since its business model relies on the convenience of fast home delivery, this demand would greatly impact company revenue, as well as the breadth of the company’s political and economic influence.
The letter also calls for Amazon to conduct a massive audit to make sure that none of its hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue go towards supporting pro-life causes and to censor its inventory so that customers have access only to pro-abortion materials and sellers.
By making such stiff demands, the letter co-signers may have sensed an opportunity to gain greater leverage with Amazon executives. Almost since the […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
