Whole Foods CEO takes on the woke, says "the socialists are taking over" by attacking free speech and the 2nd Amendment, infiltrating institutions and companies
· · Aug 15, 2022 · NottheBee.com

In an unfortunately very rare and surprising take from a CEO of a major company, John Mackey of Whole Foods is very concerned about the Woke Monster, saying that the socialists are taking over.

From The Independent:

Evidence of this left-wing takeover was present everywhere from schools to the military to firearms legislation, John Mackey told Reason Magazine's podcast on Thursday.

"My concern is that I feel like socialists are taking over," the multi-millionaire organic grocery magnate said. "They're marching through the institutions. They're… taking over education. It looks like they've taken over a lot of the corporations. It looks like they've taken over the military. And it's just continuing."


This is a man in a major leadership position in a huge company that ACTUALLY gets it.

The Left HAS marched through the institutions and taken over government, corporate, and educational institutions and is now forcing its Marxist beliefs from the top down.

"You know, I'm a capitalist at heart, and I believe in liberty and capitalism. Those are my twin values. And I feel like, you know, with the way freedom of speech is today, the movement on gun control, a lot of the liberties that I've taken for granted most of my life, I think, are under threat," he added.

This is the Whole Foods guy?

I've always associated Whole Foods with hippies and soy boys, but this guy Mackey is changing my whole attitude towards the company.

He's a capitalist. He believes in liberty, including the 2nd Amendment.

How in the heck is he not canceled yet?

He's been an open capitalist for a while, but he's throwing off the shackles now that he's headed for retirement.

During the podcast taping, Mr Mackey promised Americans that they would be hearing more about his views after his planned exit from Whole Foods, now owned by Amazon, at the end of this month.

"In six weeks, I will retire from Whole Foods, and I have muzzled myself ever since 2009," Mr Mackey said.

"I was telling my leadership team pretty soon, you're going to be hearing about ‘crazy John' who's no longer muzzled, and you're going to have to say, ‘We can't stop John from talking any longer,'" he continued.

It's unfortunate he felt the need to be silent on his beliefs until he was on the way out. But at least he's speaking the truth now.

I hope Mackey's replacement will have a similar attitude.

But I'm not holding my breath.
