These woke companies have been supporting this lawless violent Marist group BLM, and now they seem to regret it and badly ask for Police help.
Haven’t they forgotten that they have been supporting the ‘Defund The Police’ movement of leftist BLM?
Well, isn’t this what they ask for? Then, why are they crying for help? Karma served them a hot boiling dose of lessons – never to support leftist propaganda, you’ll get broke.
They’re learning the very hard and costly way, that Dem policies don’t pay.
Americans were left cleaning up the mess, every time BLM burned cities to the ground and looted businesses while “protesting” for some rather unscrupulous criminals.
Then these “woke” corporations celebrated the movement.
Wayne Dupree commented about how these woke corporations transition from celebrating the criminals, to asking for help to stop these criminals:
In reality, BLM has tanked in public approval after a brief uptick when George Floyd was killed. However, it’s one thing to be upset and angry over a death, it’s quite another to spend three months destroying cities and causing over 20 deaths.
But that didn’t matter to out-of-touch woke companies, they still pushed BLM down our gullets.
And now, all the lawlessness that these companies supported – the bail reform, defunding the police, and cheering on felons – has come back to bite them… and now they want “help.”
They’re begging for it, actually.

Here’s what their letter says via WayneDupree:
Dear Speaker Pelosi, Leader Schumer, Leader McConnell and Leader McCarthy: Leading retailers are concerned about the growing impact organized retail crime is having on the communities we proudly serve, which is why we strongly support the bipartisan and bicameral Integrity, Notification and Fairness in Online Retail Marketplaces (INFORM) for Consumers Act. This important legislation will modernize our consumer protection laws to safeguard families and communities from the sale of illicit products and we urge its quick passage. As millions of Americans have undoubtedly seen on the news in recent weeks and months, retail establishments of all kinds have seen a significant uptick in organized crime in communities across the nation. While we constantly invest in people, policies, and innovative technology to deter theft, criminals are capitalizing on the anonymity of the Internet and the failure of certain marketplaces to verify their sellers.
This trend has made retail businesses a target for increasing theft, hurt legitimate businesses who are forced to compete against unscrupulous sellers, and has greatly increased consumer exposure to unsafe and dangerous counterfeit products. There is no simple answer to stopping organized retail crime or the sale of counterfeits—but key to stemming the tide of these growing problems is transparency.
If a customer buys a product from a local retail storefront or ecommerce site and it is broken or otherwise defective, the consumer knows exactly who to contact. There is accountability. In the current environment, criminal networks and unscrupulous businesses have exploited a system that protects their anonymity to sell unsafe, stolen, or counterfeit products with little legal recourse.
This lack of transparency on particular third-party marketplaces has allowed criminal activity to fester. The INFORM Consumers Act is a simple, bipartisan measure that will increase transparency online for all marketplaces, making it easier for consumers to identify exactly who they are buying from, and make it harder for criminal elements to hide behind fake screennames and false business information to fence illicit products while evading law enforcement. The legislation has unified retailers, consumer groups, manufacturers, law enforcement, and all those serious about stopping the sale of counterfeit and stolen goods sold online.
It is time for Congress to modernize our consumer safety laws so consumers, retail employees, and businesses are not targets of organized retail crime and dangerous counterfeit products. Implementing basic transparency and verification protocols is essential and will finally expose criminals who are selling consumers stolen, fake, and dangerous products. We appreciate your support and timely action on this needed legislation. We look forward to working with you and your staff to help protect communities, families, and consumers.

These woke companies have been asking for this, they have been praising felons and turning them into civil rights heroes. They even embraced the progressive agenda and saluted BLM, who has been pushing for bail reform and defunding the police
With all the looting and riots they and Antifa helped to sponsor. It is safe to say they all deserved this karma, and we’re just here to enjoy watching as you go down with these violent thugs.
