Different flavors of disappointment

I get the sense that this is the kind of news story in the Paper of Record that future historians will have some trouble decoding:

This week, many conservatives have rebuked Chick-fil-A, pointing to a corporate policy on its website that details the company’s focus on “ensuring equal access,” “valuing differences,” and “creating a culture of belonging,” under the title, “Committed to being Better at Together.” . . .

Jeffrey Clark, a former Justice Department official who was implicated in former President Donald J. Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, said on Twitter that Chick-fil-A’s policy was “disappointing.”

On the one hand, a fast food chain has a link on its website where it claims to be focused “valuing differences,” etc.

On the other, a man who Donald Trump tried to make Attorney General of the United States because he pledged he would do his best to hijack the legal machinery of the federal government to illegally overturn a presidential election is at the moment more focused on the fast food chain’s diversity pledge.

It’s hard to pick out the most ridiculous part of this story, but one detail that appeals to me is that Chick-fil-A’s diversity policy is several years old, so the sudden focus on it by the right wing scream machine appears to be a totally random development.

That, however, is ultimately a trivial detail. The hysteria about major corporations “going woke” is just the ginning up a particularly stupid moral panic for the purposes of the non-stop griftathon that is right wing politics in this country.

Fleecing the rubes has never been easier or more profitable, so we get an endless parade of stuff like this.
