Ford Motor Company doesn't cave

July 10, 2020 |

A salute to Ford Motor Company CEO Jim Hackett for finally demonstrating to other corporations the proper way to deal with “cancel culture” cranks on their payrolls. We’ve seen far too many companies cave in to the childish demands of crybully leftist staffers, from the publisher who canceled Woody Allen’s autobiography to the New York Times, who fired an editor for daring to run an op-ed by a Republican Senator. So when some employees of Ford demanded that the company stop making police cars because they’re “accessories to police brutality and oppression” and “racist policing policies,” Hackett politely but firmly refused. He couched it all in a lot of soft-soap liberal buzzwords to keep from offending anyone, but the point was clear.

Personally, I would have suggested that if their consciences wouldn’t allow them to do their jobs, there are plenty of other people who’d be happy to take them, while, to quote Bill Murray from “Ghostbusters,” “someone with your qualifications would have no trouble finding a top-flight job in either the food service or housekeeping industries.” That’s also what should have been said to the entitled snowflakes at the Times and the publishing house, two businesses where there are easily a thousand eager applicants for every open position.

By the way, I’ll throw the Ford CEO a salute, but only with my index finger. If he wants the full-hand salute, then the Ford Foundation should stop giving money ($7.6 million since 2018) to groups like Black Lives Matter that are now pushing to defund the police departments that buy police cars from Ford. That’s both bad politics and bad business. You’d think the shareholders would bring that up to him.

Now, here’s a CEO who deserves the full-hand salute for bravery

    Just because the Foundation and Motor Company have the Ford name attached to them does not preclude the fact that they are one in the same nor have any current ties except the Ford name. The Foundation is no longer in Michigan, it's headquartered in New York, and the last Ford that was president of the foundation was back in 1950. Until I see verifiable proof that there is any actual connections I will still hold true to Ford Motor Company.

    Yet the Ford Foundation made a very donation to the BLM. Walking both sides of the street to pander to all.

    For has been enabling the liberal agenda for decades at least. I found this out way back in the 70's and refused to buy a Ford after that. I highly doubt this latest was a turn around.

    Dont these people realise that Police also respond to incidents that save and assist victims of crime? Their stupidity is one sided and supports the offender and not the victim. Good God we are no longer evolving.

    I saw on FB that some of your employees were trying to persuade you not to manufacture police cars. I would like to congratulate you on having the guts to disregard their request.

    Thank the Lord for at least one CEO that isn’t afraid to take a stand. Hopefully many more will follow suit.

    Im glad to hear FMC isnt caving. Now, reassess your donations and funding to groups who want to destroy 3/4 of the populations way of life
