(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) A recent report revealed that Bud Light’s European parent company, AB InBev, was linked to the World Economic Forum and pushed globalist guidelines for environmental, social and governance investing, as well as woke diversity, equity and inclusion policies.
According to the Daily Wire, the Belgian company’s adherence to the leftist agenda was wide-ranging and included open promotion of climate change, censorship and other radical leftist talking points.
“One might think that Bud Light could just apologize and admit that men aren’t women. But no matter how much Bud Light and parent company AB InBev might wish to rein in the radicalism, they can’t abandon the agenda,” said podcast host Michael Knowles in a lengthy Twitter thread. “They’re mired in World Economic Forum/ESG gobbledygook.”
The Belgian company purchased Budweiser for $52 billion in 2008, making the company beholden to ESG and DEI policies. AB InBev offered to pay for employees’ sex change surgeries in the U.S. and Canada, and provided “financial and legal support” for employees in Brazil and Columbia.
The conglomerate also contributed to “family-forming” options for gay couples, such as “two men buying the eggs & womb of a woman to intentionally remove a baby from its mother at birth.”
AB InBev also required suppliers and buyers of their products to adhere to their diversity principles, claiming DEI should touch “upon all functions, including sales, supply chain, marketing and others.”
The WEF’s commitment to censorship was also present in InBev’s company structure. The company actively took part the Global Alliance for Responsible Media, a group that demands companies have “standards that limit or entirely demonetize platforms that contain ‘hate speech’ on ‘gender identity,’ insensitive… treatment of debated social issues,’ or the classic ‘misinformation.'”
Adidas, BP, CVS, Goldman Sachs, Lego, Mastercard, McDonalds, Merck, Nike, Proctor & Gamble, Hershey, Disney, Unilever, Walmart and several other large-scale corporations follow GARMs guidelines.
GARM’s fight against “misinformation” was introduced “in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Ukraine war.” The organization controls advertising money via big tech platforms such as YouTube and TikTok, which limit or completely demonetize partisan political content.
“Don’t look away,” Knowles said. “If we don’t put an end to this growing scheme of control and deceit, Bud Light’s inability to apologize and admit that men can’t be women will be the least of our problems.”
