This pains me as I have family that works at Salesforce. I’m now a bit worried for their income as Salesforce is joining the “Get Woke, Go Broke” Clan. (Or is that Klan?)
But Salesforce has held a meeting where the executives have decided that only offering services to Left Wing POV Companies & Organizations is somehow a good idea.
Companies need to be NEUTRAL, not POLITICAL, or they cut their market opportunities in half. No Conservative can now consider it “safe” to use or depend on Salesforce products. They ALL ought to be looking for alternatives.
Were I the Director of I.T. at a company, looking to review Customer Management software, I’d be asking my sales rep point blank: “How can I possibly trust your company or your product when one tweet or one public statement by one of our employees that somehow steps into the Left Wing Censorship Zone can cause your product to be withdrawn?” Knowing full well they can either be truthful and say “You can’t”, or lie to my face.
Project Veritas: Salesforce Plans to Blacklist Clients for Political Speech, Citing Capitol Riot
Investigative journalism group Project Veritas recently published a report detailing plans by the cloud-based software giant Salesforce to de-platform customers who have “the potential to incite politically motivated violence.” According to the Project Veritas video, executives are communicating with the RNC specifically about messages from former President Donald Trump. Project Veritas reports that its own business account with Salesforce has been cut off.
Leaked Insider Tape Reveals Salesforce’s Plan to Deplatform ‘Broader Range’ of Customers Who Have ‘The Potential to Incite Politically Motivated Violence’ … Salesforce Inexplicably Severs Ties with Project Veritas
Potential? What speech does NOT have the “potential” to cause some nutcase to go nuts?
Bret Taylor, Salesforce President and COO: “Since the events of the 6th [of January], I think one of the things that really impacts Salesforce is the national conversation about the role of technology in inciting that mob, disseminating misinformation and fomenting extremism.”
OK, so they have bought into the Lies & Spin about the False Flag event of 6 Jan. The insanity has gone to their heads.
Taylor: “What we’ve done in light of the events of Jan. 6 is recognize a much broader range of messages have the potential to incite politically motivated violence.”
Taylor: “We’ve engaged with the RNC to communicate that no messages on behalf of President Trump and no messages questioning the validity or integrity of the election are allowed on our platform under the guidelines that they may incite violence.”
Taylor: “We’re looking across our customer base to make sure our technology is not being used by businesses or platforms that are inciting political violence.”
Eric Loeb, Salesforce Executive VP of Government Affairs: “We are pausing all PAC contributions…the pause or suspension certainly includes the suspension of any contributions to members of Congress that voted to object to the [presidential election] certification.”
Salesforce emailed Project Veritas to announce they made a “business decision” to end the existing working relationship. No explanation or reasoning was provided.
[SAN FRANCISCO – Feb. 24, 2021] Project Veritas released a new video today leaked by a Salesforce insider exposing the company’s executives adhering to “Cancel Culture” mentality following the events at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. The Salesforce executives were recorded on Jan. 13.
So Salesforce is banning Trump from RNC Conversations? Isn’t that “Contributions in kind” to the DNC? Isn’t that Violation Of Civil Rights of Trump?
Ought not EVERY company with ANY Conservative voices abandon Salesforce at their earliest opportunity?
Will this create a giant opportunity for a Politcaly Neutral or Conservative company to offer Salesforce competitive products? You Betcha!
