(VitalNews.org) – In a bold financial move, Bill Gates purchased a chunk of Anheuser-Busch shares, clearly banking on the beer company to make a comeback. To be exact, Gates swiped up 1.7 million shares while things were way down for the company ever since the Bud Light incident.
Anheuser-Busch is the parent company of Bud Light, which decided to put transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney on their beer cans. Ever since then, culture war hell broke loose in America between so-called “woke” left-wing political worldviews based on identity politics, and a more conservative and traditionalist form of identity politics based around a unified national identity.
As one side pushes the “woke” views through products, entertainment, academia, and government policy backed by Democrats, the other side is pushing back by boycotting these things and pushing legislation of their own, turning away from rainbows and toward the stars and stripes.
Bud Light sales and stock tanked after the Mulvaney incident, and it’s no wonder why. Many Americans are fed up with what they view as an attack on a fundamental understanding of reality itself: men are men and women are women, and neither can turn into the other.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Trust purchased the shares in the second quarter of 2023. The current value of the 1.7 million shares is roughly $95 million. Anheuser-Busch has made some efforts to make up for the Bud Light debacle, but they’ve nowhere near recovered from the hit taken, yet for some reason, Gates seems to think “woke” beer companies are a good place to park some of his fortune.
Many Americans are skeptical of the tech mogul, who was a big proponent of lockdowns and mandates in response to the pandemic in 2020, policies which turned out to be disastrous. Gates has also been swiping up land across the nation and is currently the largest private farmland owner in the country
