Opinion: McConnell is foolish to bite the hands that feed him

There is a phrase from the year 600 BC. BC, which is often used from the age of 16th Century English that “Moscow” Mitch McConnell probably never heard of. “Don’t bite the hand that feeds you” is wise advice to a person who attacks, harms, is ungrateful to someone, or otherwise turns against someone who helps them.

The phrase applies to McConnell for his threat against large companies that helps him and the Republicans with massive campaign contributions for the sole purpose of influencing politics in order to benefit itself. It’s blatant hypocrisy on the part of McConnell, of course, but it’s stupid for too threatening him toothless Your Main donor warns them to stay out of politics.

McConnell is very angry because Some big companies support democracy and reject the youngest neo-Jim Crow’s legislation openly suppresses the voices of mostly colored people. Last Monday, McConnell said:

Our private sector must stop orienting itself towards the Outrage-Industrial Complex. Americans do not need or want big business to amplify disinformation or to respond with frantic left-wing signals to every controversy it creates. Corporations must not use economic blackmail to spread disinformation and put bad ideas that citizens reject to the ballot box.

From the right to vote and environmental protection to radical social agendas and the second change, parts of the private sector repeatedly behave like a lively parallel government. Corporations will have dire consequences if they become a means for radical left mobs to hijack our country from outside the constitutional order.

Forget that McConnell allowed Trump to operate well outside of constitutional order and ignore the startlingly silly remark that radical left mobs force companies to do anything; It’s one of the stupidest things McConnell warned companies about. But McConnell Hypocrisy is more than breathtaking and Cannot be ignored. It’s McConnell who has, after all done more than anyone else in politics to Reward companies not only with tax cuts, but also with open-door policies that allow them to influence social agendas Washington politics. How written down last year in the New Yorker:

Nobody did more than [McConnell] must develop the current campaign funding system, where billionaires and corporations have virtually no spending constraints and proprietary trading and influencing are the order of the day.

McConnell, like the majority of Republicans, has no problem with corporations exercising their freedom of speech by donating money to enact policies dearly close and dear to Republicans and their wicked electoral blocs. However, when they speak out against overt racist and anti-democratic atrocities, their freedom of speech becomes unbearable;; so McConnell threatens them with dire consequences for try to influence Guidelines that are inherently racist and in contrast to fascist republican politics.

McConnell was a driving force behind the Citizens United case, which gave business and particular interest (religious) groups you oversized voice to influence Republican politics directed against gun fanatics, attacks by religious fanatics on women’s rights and the Fossil wasIndustrys attacks the Surroundings. AAccording to McConnell, hers Political leverage for favorite conservative issues is fine and good because companies are people with freedom of speech. However, with companies use their freedom of speech to speak out for democracy and against racist politics, You are threatened with grave consequences.

It’s not really clear what grave consequences McConnell was talking about or what kind of power he wields against the people who keep him and most of the Republicans in office. Anyway, it was a stupid remark and smells like biting the hand that is feeding you.

Seriously, will McConnell punish corporations and large corporations with massive corporate tax increases? Or will he support legislation that overthrows Citizens United and puts an end to dark money in politics? Or will he vote for an environmental policy that the fossil fuel industry hates? He won’t do any of this, and corporations and large corporations know he won’t.

McConnell’s threats are how hollow the way they are hypocritical and monumentally stupid but they reveal something that certainly caught the attention of the same company that he did usually loves more than anything else on earth. Even the companies that benefit from their Republican investments understand McConnell’s blatant opposition to democracy defines his un-american hug from the fascism Trump influenced the republican movement to be adopted as a defining characteristic.

It is most likely that McConnell believed he could bully companies like bullying his filthy voters for fear of “far left lyingls ”force “Bad Ideas” like equal voting rights, environmental protection and sensible gun regulations on Americans. However, corporations and large corporations do not run by dirty people who support fascism, destroy the environment and regular mass murders.

In fact, they are led by educated Americans who Understand that the majority of Americans support anything McConnell and Fascist Republicans oppose it. Corporations may be greedy, but they’re not stupidand they’re not bullied by the likes of McConnell. You’re probably not afraid of it Stop distributing millions to Republicansr because Democrats know that big business is necessary for a healthy economy, or because they do are not stupid enough to support policies that go against the will of the people.

McConnell, on the other hand, has shown that He’s not just a raging hypocrite and a un-american fascist, he’s just showing the nation and the corporations that support him that he’s actually pretty stupid and not as intelligent as a dog that knows it is never wise to bite the hand that is feeding you.
