A Minstrel Show with Corporate Sponsors

A Minstrel Show with Corporate Sponsors

The scrawny young man named Dylan Mulvaney has spent the last year putting on a digital minstrel show. But instead of putting shoe polish on his face and wearing a kinky black wig while singing “Mammy,” Dylan slaps on make-up and a dress and dolls up his hair in a bouffant while prancing around pretending to be a girl.

And while minstrels in blackface are treated with disdain, a blot on our history that must be erased from existence, for his girlface minstrel show, Dylan has been feted by the elites in this country. He’s been interviewed by fashion magazines and daytime talk shows. Hell, he even got invited to the Biden White House.

Corporate sponsors are lining up to throw money at this gangly boy whose girlface performances are the epitome of stereotype.

Yeah. This boy’s digital minstrel show has corporate sponsors.

In the past week alone, Bud Light and Nike both showered Dylan with cash to be the girlface of their products.

And heaven forbid you have the temerity to find it laughable. You’ll get shamed and lectured by woke scolds like Pete Buttigieg’s husband Chastity.

Anheuser-Busch didn’t make this girlface minstrel the face of Bud Light because the company thinks it will be a boon to beer sales. Nike doesn’t really believe that women will buy more of their workout clothes all because some knobby-kneed boy in girlface pranced around in them.

They don’t care about profits.

But they sure as hell care about receiving a high ESG score from the nonprofit LGBT bean-counting groups that tally such things.

As James Lindsay explained in a Twitter thread last week, the LGBT group Human Rights Campaign Foundation keeps tabs on how corporations do vis-à-vis Culture and Corporate Social Responsibility and then assigns them a “Corporate Equality Index” score.

The criteria for getting a high Corporate Equality Index score include holding LGBT training, having Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion groups, and outreach to the wider LGBT community.

As Lindsay put it:

“If the HRC came to Anheuser-Busch and told them to celebrate Dylan, and they said no, that would be failing ‘responsible citizenship’ and points would be deducted. The Corporate Equality Index is an extortion racket that makes corporations do these things.”

Remember that scene in The Godfather II when Vito Corleone loses his delivery job at the grocer’s because his boss was forced to hire the local mobster’s nephew?

His boss couldn’t say no. It didn’t matter that Vito had a wife and children. He paid that mobster protection money to stay in his good books. And if he didn’t do what the mobster wanted in return, his business might get burned to the ground or the grocer’s son might come to work in the morning to discover his father lying dead in the back room. 

This is exactly the same thing but on a corporate scale.

The ESG bullies gave Anheuser-Busch an offer it couldn’t refuse.

If Anheuser-Busch wants continued protection from the ESG mobsters, it damn well better sponsor the knobby-kneed, sunken-chested minstrel in girlface.

It won’t matter if customers flee. It doesn’t matter if profits suffer or if it fails in its fiduciary duty to investors. All that matters is staying in the good books of the ESG-pushing extortionists.

A minstrel show featuring a white guy in blackface is not acceptable. But in today’s culture, a minstrel show featuring a white guy in girlface isn’t just acceptable but must be celebrated and amplified.

And thanks to the ESG bullies, it isn’t enough just to convince you it’s acceptable. The purpose of ESG is to bring the full force of corporate culture to bear to jam the left’s insane ideology down our throats.

As I said last week, we are not permitted to ignore performative nonsense like Dylan and his girlface minstrel show. It will be shoved in our faces 24/7.

If blackface minstrels had that kind of corporate power behind them, maybe classic films and TV shows featuring blackface wouldn’t have to come with a trigger warning at the beginning.

Think I’m kidding? The episode of Mad Men that featured Roger Sterling in blackface now includes this warning at the beginning:

“This episode contains disturbing images related to race in America. One of the characters is shown in blackface as part of an episode that shows how commonplace racism was in America in 1963. In its reliance on historical authenticity, the series producers are committed to exposing the injustices and inequities within our society that continue to this day so we can examine even the most painful parts of our history in order to reflect on who we are today and who we want to become. We are therefore presenting the original episode in its entirety.”

Bud Light made a big show of standing by its decision to sponsor Dylan’s girlface minstrel show. But now that you know how the sausage was made, you can understand just how phony the “we stand by this” statement was.

Like Vito Corleone’s boss, Bud Light has to stand by its decision because standing up to the ESG extortionists comes with a price that corporations are too fearful to pay.

    I think there will be a huge backlash against this sophistry.Kid Rock made a video showing how he feels about it. I never liked beer, so it doesn’t affect me, but we’re inundated with these sick perverts at every turn. Revs,. Jesse and Al are small potatoes next to these terrorists.
    On a positive note, may everyone here have a joyful and peaceful Easter.

    This is exactly what I said to my family. I feel that this is no different than blackface and these corporations are celebrating the insult to biological women. Women have fought too long and hard to have these mentally ill mansplainers take away college scholarships, modeling contracts, acting roles, national sports titles, etc. while exposing their genitals to little girls and women. Why are women being so spineless and remaining silent, or worse, promoting this insanity? This Dylan is also a spokesman for Tampax! Where exactly does he insert his monthly tampons? What will he endorse next- nipple cream for nursing moms? Midol? Prolapsed uterine devices? IUDs? The morning after pill?

    The Bud Light boycott is getting some people’s attention at A-B. First, it has started with the sales and delivery people who see business drying up, next will be the distributors who will have to cut back on their orders. Since A-B InBEV (a Dutch company) owns some 400 beer brands globally and has cornered 28% of the internatonal market, not drinking Bud Light probably won’t hurt their bottom line all that much. That being said, every beer drinking friend of mine has sworn off all A-B products.

      It shouldn’t just be A-B but anything that InBev sells. Otherwise, InBev can easily cover its losses.

    Bud Light will become the new “Girly Man” meme. BL will be the preferred drink of Beta males; no tea for Pajama-Boy, give him BL. No self-respecting dude will ever put himself into a position of ridicule by being seen drinking BL, and perhaps even Bud. I’m not a bar-hopper, but I can imagine the smack being tossed around right now about BL. I foresee the day in the not so distant future where BL disappears.

    It’s basically fascism. However, instead of a national government working with corporations to force acceptance, non-government entities like Blackrock are forcing corporations to follow and enforce the new narrative(s (like Trannies good, parents bad, guns bad, leftist anarchists attacking conservatives good) through extortion.

  • April 10, 2023 at 4:23 pm

    Another possibility is that Bud light is a loser!
    so before they dump it the the corporate head shed has decided to cover the bases by making it appear they give a crap about the woke loons, so when BL gets jettisoned it will look like the parent corp.tried to be inclusive and whatever, but thanks to “normal” folks sales tanked, so it was eliminated.

    …and everyone gets a trophy

    My son-in-law got mad at me over Easter weekend over my views about Dylan Mulvaney. Why? Because he and my daughter have a couple of classmates from college who transitioned and they have bought into the belief that we all should not only tolerate their pronouns, etc., but that we must be supportive of their delusions in every way. Of course, as a Christian, I believe we should treat people with kindness and respect. We are all God’s creations. However, I draw the line at being forced to use ever changing pronouns and applauding trans women who take away opportunities from biological women, assert that they are more of a woman than us, and who invade bathrooms and locker rooms and intentionally expose their penises to little girls. I feel it’s no different than blackface. Women have fought too hard and for too long for our rights and now men who feel that they are women are taking them away. My SIL tried “educating” my husband and me, but finally just got up and walked away when he realized we weren’t in agreement with his argument that trans men should be allowed to compete against women. He even corrected me when I called Mulvaney “he”, telling me “she”. I continued using the “he” pronoun and this drove him crazy. The whole thing began when our daughter said she hadn’t heard about Mulvaney and so I was telling her about the controversy. Our SIL walked in on the conversation and Boom!- we were off to the races. Our daughter sat there like a deer in the headlights, wisely remaining silent. I understand that she couldn’t take sides. So glad that a man was able to mansplain to me about why I as a woman should accept dudes who parody women. In my own home. On Easter weekend. This is our world.
