‘Woke’ Companies Ignore Call to Disassociate from LGBT Leader Who Helped Cuomo

'Belittling sexual abuse victims is disgusting and vile...'

A think tank devoted to fighting corporatism has called upon the CEOs of top companies to pull their support for the Human Rights Campaign, a leading LGBT activist group, after its president helped cover up sexual-harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Scott Shepard, director of the Free Enterprise Project at the National Center for Public Policy Research,  called out Apple, American Airlines, Coca-Cola, Pfizer and Target for their support of the “slut shaming” organization.

HRC President Alphonso David helped Cuomo by sharing confidential human resource files on one former Cuomo staffer who had accused the governor of harassment.

The goal of Cuomo’s public-relations blitz was to compile embarrassing information about accusers in order to discredit them publicly.

In addition to the organization’s endorsement of ‘slut-shaming,’ Shepard also called on HRC’s corporate sponsors to denounce its controversial support of the so-called Equality Act.

That legislation would remove federal protections for Americans of faith and would give the government the power to restrict or eliminate the ability of Americans to practice their religion.

The Equality Act would also do tremendous harm to women in numerous settings including scholastic and professional sports, Shepard said.

Moreover, it would seek to make religious groups violate their conscience by, for example, forcing Catholic hospitals to do hysterectomies for women who want to become men, and mastectomies on gender dysphoric underage girls.

In a 165-page report, the New York Attorney General detailed nearly a dozen accusations of sexual misconduct by the governor.

The report blasted an inner circle around the governor, including HRC’s Alphonso David for helping to create a “culture of fear and intimidation, the normalization of inappropriate comments and interactions.”

Shepard said that it was part of a pattern that has allied big corporations with those in power against the interests of conservatives, with the result acting as a corrupting influence on government.

“The clearest stamp of corruption has come with HRC President Alphonso David’s assistance in slandering the women who have accused New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual abuse,” Shepard said. “Belittling sexual abuse victims is disgusting and vile.”

Shepard said HRC used the cover of caring about women’s issues and LGBT-related communities in order to support hard-left policies and legislation that included suppressing freedom of worship in the U.S.

The center took aim at one HRC corporate donor specifically, calling out Apple CEO Tim Cook for his anti-Christian bigotry and misogyny.

“Cook had the chance to do the honorable thing and end the tech giant’s fiscal support of this tainted organization,” said NCPPR Executive Vice President Justin Danhof.

“Instead, he chose to stand by HRC,” Danhof said. “The board members of every company that funds HRC, including Apple, are hereby on notice that financial support for such bigotry and misogyny is unacceptable.”

It’s not the first time Apple was hit for corporate hypocrisy. Previously Apple has come under attack for doing business in the Xinjiang region of China where the Chinese Communist government uses slave labor for big corporations like Apple.

After it was revealed that Apple’s supply chain was implicated in forced labor practices in China, Apple lobbied against a bill that would make using Chinese slave labor illegal by U.S. companies.

“Apple lobbyists are trying to weaken a bill aimed at preventing forced labor in China, according to two congressional staffers familiar with the matter, highlighting the clash between its business imperatives and its official stance on human rights,” said the Washington Post last year.
