In a fresh example of post-American fascism, Forbes is carrying out a “truth reckoning.”
In this time of transition – and pain – reinvigorating democracy requires a reckoning. A truth reckoning. Starting with the people paid by the People to inform the People.
Forbes aims to punish those in the Trump administration, starting with those who communicated his message.
Press secretaries like Joe Lockhart, Ari Fleischer and Jay Carney, who left the White House with their reputations in various stages of intact, made millions taking their skills — and credibility — to corporate America. Trump’s liars don’t merit that same golden parachute. Let it be known to the business world: Hire any of Trump’s fellow fabulists above, and Forbes will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie. We’re going to scrutinize, double-check, investigate with the same skepticism we’d approach a Trump tweet.
For this, we give Forbes the Napoleon Award for being lackeys for Joe Biden’s socialist regime.
UPDATE: To his credit, Steve Forbes, “Forbes chairman and editor-in-chief . . . told Newsmax TV he does not agree with his magazine’s editorial in which businesses were warned of repercussions should they hire press secretaries from President Donald Trump’s administration.”
But there are more horrendous moves being made against Conservative lawmakers.
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested on Sunday that more House Democrats were considering invoking the 14th Amendment to expel Republican lawmakers who had participated in efforts to subvert the results of the November election.
