“IBM CEO Ginni Rometty explained in great length why she and other CEOs had decided to disband Trump’s Strategy and Policy Forum, which went hand-in-hand with the manufacturing council,” according to Breitbart.

Rometty’s statement about leaving Trump’s panel included this interesting bit: “IBM has long said, and more importantly, demonstrated its commitment to a workplace and a society that is open, inclusive and provides opportunity to all.”

IBM’s Rometty

Those who truly know the history of Thomas Watson, senior and junior, the men who built IBM into the behemoth it was, are fully aware that IBM was famous not for its “open, inclusive” culture but for a corporate culture that was narrowly defined and in which wearing the wrong color dress shirts or ties could negatively affect promotion.

But the IBM of today is a Leftist culture advocate and was among the first businesses operating in Texas to publicly call for the defeat of the Texas Privacy Act.

The Privacy Act added to state law protections for business against intrusive local ordinances which could indeed intrude upon whatever orgiastic culture an enterprise may choose to encourage with its policies related to scatology.

IBM claimed that the so-called bathroom bill would hamper its open and inclusive corporate culture but in so doing demonstrated that IBM leaders are shallow and ignorant of what the bill actually provided for.

The Privacy Act, or bathroom bill, added to state law protections for business against intrusive local ordinances which could indeed intrude upon whatever orgiastic culture an enterprise may choose to encourage with its policies related to scatology.

IBM’s Rometty demonstrated, by taking a knee-jerk ill-informed position on the Privacy Act, that IBM is interested more in being seen as jumping on Leftwing political bandwagons than on protecting any sort of inclusive business culture.
