Why are Manufacturers agitating for a radical new gay marriage law that attacks Religious Liberty?
Even as manufacturing tanks into recession territory in America, lobbyists for factories clamor to suck up to Joe Biden and the DC Establishment with a ludicrous new PR campaign: Manufacturers for Gay Marriage.
Specifically, the National Association of Manufacturers officially calls for passage of the misnamed “Respect for Marriage Act” on Capitol Hill. This once-revered industry group leverages its considerable political capital to venture far beyond matters of relevance to the productive capacity of US manufacturing. The Association incredulously claims this new law would allow factory workers to “bring their authentic selves to work.”
Why must a group like the NAM insert itself into this social issue?
Manufacturers call for passage of the Respect for Marriage Act. This bill would ensure that the legal protections around which so many Americans, including manufacturing workers, have ordered their lives will not be suddenly rolled back.https://t.co/UG9LUEKI6A— Jay Timmons (@JayTimmonsNAM) November 16, 2022
The answer flows from the giddy readiness of Big Business to please Permanent Washington to effectively bribe liberal and establishment powerbrokers to protect the interests of corporate C-suite executives.
Through this practice, large enterprises effectively pay the modern equivalent of Indulgences, channeling the former Medieval Catholic practice of paying stipends for the forgiveness of sins. In this 21st century version, corrupt, rent-seeking corporations pay “indulgences” to the permanent political class, advocating for radical social policies. In return, these connected firms receive preferential regulatory and policy treatment that ensures their existing dominant market positions.
For example, massive multinational consumer names get an effective pass on using Chinese slave labor to produce goods for sale in America. Similarly, US-based manufacturers suffer no financial penalties for shipping American jobs overseas, in large part because these same companies dutifully finance the political establishment. On Wall St., financial giants secure generous contracts to manage the public money of government entities and pensions, in return for aggressively supporting the secular humanist agenda of the Ruling Class.
