(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) A startup business called Public Square intends to offer an anti-woke alternative to the consumerist-media empire that is Amazon.
After launching seven months ago, Public Square claims to currently host upwards of 50,000 “patriotic” vendors and has processed millions of transactions, the Daily Mail reported. Recently, it announced a merger with Omeed Malik’s blank check company Colombier Acquisition Group in a $200 million deal.
The American-based company gives priority to vendors who do not support the woke globalist agenda of the Left. According to its website, the associated vendors are small businessmen that can be trusted.
“Tired of supporting companies with a woke agenda? PublicSq. does the vetting for you so you can be more intentional with your spending without compromising on quality,” the company promises.
Donald Trump Jr. and former Arizona senatorial candidate Blake Masters both serve in advisory roles for the company.
“People need to stop giving their money to businesses that hate them. We aren’t going to defeat woke corporations by whining on Twitter,” Trump Jr. said, noting that he believes the company can grow large enough to end Amazon’s stranglehold.
“We will win by creating a parallel economy and that’s exactly what PublicSq is doing. PublicSq is on a mission to identify millions of small businesses across America that share our patriotic values.”
According to the company’s founder, Michael Seifert, Public Square offers “the nation’s largest directory of patriotic, America-first businesses and consumers that has ever existed.”
Seifert also noted that the company will actively avoid embracing “affirmative action policies” along with ESG and DEI virtue signaling.
“This is an economy that’s based on meritocracy and value for the individual.”
The Public Square CEO recently appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox show to promote the new America-first business venture.
