Salesforce Client is Republican Party
by Never Forgive, Never Forget
Friday Aug 6th, 2021 4:48 PM
San Francisco's very own tech giant, Salesforce, continues to do the bidding of its client, the Republican Party, also known as the Republican National Committee, despite the Jan. 6, 2021 seditious insurrection by Nazi Trump thugs to overthrow the government by force and violence to install Nazi Trump as dictator.

The details are from the above website:
"Internet giant Salesforce.com accepted a $2.7 million payment from one of Donald Trump’s political committees the day after the former president incited a deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol ― and a few days before Salesforce claimed it would not permit its services to be used “in any way that could lead to violence.”"

"Within days of that statement, the San Francisco-based company was distributing tens of millions of emails for the Republican National Committee that continued amplifying Trump’s lies about election fraud that led to the insurrection in the first place. And it is now servicing Trump’s “leadership” committee, even as he has ramped up his falsehoods about his reelection having been stolen from him."

"An email sent Wednesday by Trump’s “Save America” committee ― whose funds Trump can legally use for almost any purpose he wants, including picking up his personal expenses or paying him a salary ― asked recipients: “Do you agree President Trump is the only leader who can Save America?”"

"It was sent through Salesforce servers, as were many hundreds of emails sent prior to Jan. 6 that spread Trump’s lies about the election, and dozens more after Jan. 6 by Trump and the RNC that continued with that theme."

"The company collected $2.65 million on Jan. 7 from the Trump Make America Great Again Committee for “email services,” according to its recent filing with the Federal Election Commission, less than 24 hours after Trump’s last-ditch attempt to overthrow democracy."

"We are all deeply troubled by the terrible events of January 6. And while we all hope that they are never repeated, sadly there remains a risk of politically incited violence across the country,” Salesforce said in a statement. “The Republican National Committee has been a long-standing customer, predating the current Administration, and we have taken action to prevent its use of our services in any way that could lead to violence.” "

"Yet within days, the RNC resumed using Salesforce to send out fundraising emails with messaging that built on Trump’s lies about election fraud and downplayed the Jan. 6 attack."

Anyone who does any research on the rise of fascism in Germany in the 1930s finds exactly the same corporate support of Hitler as we see now in support of Nazi Trump. It is the profit motive that is the cause of all our grief that can only be ended by a labor movement capable of carrying out a general strike.
