Conservatives are rethinking their decision to shop at Dollar General.
The company was exposed as a front for leftist ideology.
And they were just exposed for secretly pushing a toxic left-wing agenda.
Dollar General is one of the most commonly found stores in rural America. Small-town conservatives across the country shop at their thousands of locations.
The company quite literally relies on these rural communities to stay afloat. A huge part of their business model is to serve towns that don’t have nearby Walmarts or other big shopping centers.
For this reason, you would think Dollar General would be inclined not to insult the customers who frequent their business.
But the truth beneath the surface is far uglier than that. Dollar General has been pushing a left-wing agenda, and they were hoping their customers wouldn’t find out about it.
They have been doing this to stay on the good side of the left-wing mob and avoid criticism by the media.
But the result is that the toxic ideology that has been sinking its teeth into our culture over the past 10 years is actively being pushed by Dollar General.
This is apparent when you visit the Dollar General website. They have a prominently featured “Diversity & Inclusion” page that is full of progressive nonsense.
For example, there is a section that is titled “Supplier Diversity” that reads: “Dollar General is committed to growing our purchases of goods and services from vendors who are certified as minority, women, LGBTQIA+ community member, veteran, and/or a person with a disability. We believe that being in the communities where we work and serve allows us to provide an opportunity to foster economic inclusion and drive our mission of Serving Others.”
The fact that they use the absurdly drawn-out “LGBTQIA+” label shows exactly what kind of agenda Dollar General is trying to push here.
They also have “Employee Resource Groups” that divide employees up by their identities, such as “EQUAL” which is their “LGBTQIA+ Employee Resource Group” and “AAERG” which is their “African American Employee Resource Group.”
Instead of treating their employees like individuals, they are dividing them up by race and sexual orientation – just what the Left is pushing these days.
Their CEO, Jeff Owen, ties it all up with a nice corporate-sounding quote that says absolutely nothing: “At DG, we believe high performing teams are built by bringing together individuals with diverse backgrounds and perspectives and ensuring those experiences and perspectives are heard and valued. This belief makes DG a great place to build a career and drives our growth and success. We remain steadfast in our commitment to embedding diversity, equity, and inclusion across the entire company, so that together, we can better serve our customers, communities and each other every day.”
If Dollar General can’t treat their employees and customers like individuals instead of dividing them by their racial or sexual identity, conservatives should rethink their decision to shop there.
Dollar General very clearly has decided to go woke, but conservatives will have the final say on whether that decision works out for them.
