Another one of the great American companies has been taken over by the left.
Even Harley-Davidson is working for the radical progressives now.
They launched a shocking attack on conservatives and now their business is in deep trouble.
Harley-Davidson is the last company anyone would’ve expected to go “woke.” They have built a lasting legacy on serving customers who are conservative, freedom-loving Americans.
But things are changing, and the left has made it their strategy to take over great American institutions and hollow them out.
Unfortunately, it seems that Harley-Davidson is no different.
These major corporations are so concerned about public perception that they hire overpaid PR agencies to make them look more appealing.
These PR agents lean hard to the left and tell the board of directors at these various companies to position themselves as “progressive” in order to avoid criticism from the media.
A company like Harley-Davidson should know not to fall into that trap, but now they’re spewing the same progressive garbage we’ve seen other companies fall prey to.
The “CEO Act!on for Diversity & Inclusion” has a report on Harley-Davidson that includes quotes from their former CEO, Matthew Levatich.
The most shocking part of the report is the discussion about hiring strategies.
“Harley-Davidson had several initiatives to ensure inclusion in our hiring practices to assist with the transition. Two of these initiatives enacted in 2018 were ‘ban the box’ during the application process and a pay equity directive for salaried employees. With the ‘ban the box’ initiative, the question about prior criminal history was removed from the application.”
For Harley-Davidson to be organizing their hiring practices around “diversity and inclusion” is scary.
And removing the criminal history box from their job application is in line with the left’s pro-crime ideology they’ve adopted lately thanks to George Soros.
The fact it’s even included as part of a “diversity and inclusion” initiative is bizarrely racist in itself. Why would Harley-Davidson assume that getting rid of the criminal history box would help minority applicants?
Levatich, of course, dresses this up with flowery language.
“Freedom is personal. When we think about our company Purpose to fulfill dreams of personal freedom and as we all see the meaning we bring to a world of individuals who use Harley-Davidson to make a statement about who they are, diversity is as powerful an idea in our business as you can get. With our powerful purpose, we are striving to be the most customer-led company on the planet. We’ll only truly get there with a genuine curiosity and passion for the great diversity in our world and by reflecting that in all we do, how we act and what we believe.”
Harley-Davidson can try and hide their left-wing agenda behind flowery language, but discerning customers can see right through it.
