It seems we’re entering into a period in history when companies are abandoning any semblance of political neutrality. Rather than selling their products to whoever will buy them, it’s become the norm to trash one’s customers for having differing views.
Social capital is apparently just as important now as real capital, as signaling to the Left that you’re down with the cause is every bit as important than actually making money. These leftist-run companies are proud of ridding themselves of half their potential customer base, because to them, conservative folks are just a bunch of backward, bigoted imbeciles leftover from a bygone era. Over the weekend it was Keurig that sold us out, now it’s a self-righteous game company.
As reported at NBC affiliate KHQ, the latest far-left company to take sides in the culture war is Cards Against Humanity–you guessed it, a card game manufacturer. The game is especially popular among the younger crowd, as it brands itself as a politically incorrect, inappropriate good time.
Cards Against Humanity launched a new campaign on Tuesday targeting President Trump and his plans to build a border wall between the US and Mexico.
It pledged to give “six surprises” during the month of December to anyone who immediately donated $15 to its efforts — noting that backers of the so-called “party game for horrible people” were attempting to “save America.”
On Tuesday, the company’s new site Cards Against Humanity Saves America was launched. The front page contains information about their attempt to block Trump’s plans to build a wall buy purchasing a plot of land along the potential fence-line. Of course, there’s also plenty of items up for purchase as well, as this is a savvy marketing campaign, which, according to the site, is working quite well.
On the website, the folks running the show trash the president saying: “Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans. He is so afraid he wants to build a twenty-billion dollar wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing. So we’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for that wall to get built.“
The $15 dollars the company’s asking for is apparently going towards the cause, and on top of the dopamine rush and smug feeling of self-righteousness you get for paying up, you’ll supposedly receive an illustrated map of the land and “a few other surprises.”
It’s rather ironic that leftists are all about the intentionally inappropriate, adult-centered game, considering they clamor for trigger warnings and worship at the alter of political correctness. Using the wrong “pronoun” is enough to give many of them a panic attack and an emergency trip to their therapist, so it’s a little strange that leftist would love a game that’s intentionally encouraging people to be as creatively inappropriate as possible.
Regardless, the clowns heading up the company sure know how to push left-wing consumers’ buttons. It’s simple really, just create a situation where they can feel morally superior and receive a dopamine high by purchasing your product. Whether they’re true believers or not, it really doesn’t matter. They’re laughing all the way to the bank.
