The frontrunners for the Pennsylvania GOP Senate primary took the stage for a debate on April 25th.
Five candidates had their first opportunity to take jabs at each opponent:
- Mehmet Oz
- David McCormick
- Kathy Barnette
- Jeff Bartos
- Carla Sands
One highlight floating around social media caught my attention.
Watch this clip on Rumble showing Kathy Barnette calling out Dr. Oz and David McCormick for their ties to Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum.
“Although I think you’re a magnanimous individual, but you and your corporation, McCormick, you are a part of the WEF, the World Economic Forum,” Barnette said.
“As well as you, Oz. They’re both part of the World Economic Forum. This is a very serious organization that has a mindset of pushing globalism and ESG, environmental social governance.”
In his rebuttal, McCormick failed to address his World Economic Forum ties.
Per his Wikipedia, David McCormick “served as the CEO of Bridgewater Associates, one of the world’s largest hedge funds, from 2020 to 2022.”
Bridgewater joined the World Economic Forum’s partnership for racial justice in business in January 2021.
Bridgewater is a founding member of the World Economic Forum’s new initiative, Partnering for Racial Justice in Business. The initiative pulls together 48 leading global companies, spanning 13 industries, to improve racial and ethnic justice in the workplace. Each member of the initiative has committed to putting racial and ethnic justice on the agenda of their corporate boards, taking concrete actions as a firm to advance equity and justice, and setting a long-term strategy to become an anti-racist organization. At the time of the announcement, CEO David McCormick issued the following statement on Bridgewater’s commitment to this partnership:
“The time has come for corporate leaders to step up — it is long overdue. Bridgewater’s culture is rooted in equity and rewards based on merit. There’s a natural alignment between our way of being and the goals of the Partnership for Racial Justice in Business. We don’t claim to have all the answers on the biggest societal questions. But as a founding member of the Partnership, we are committed to ongoing improvement at our own company, and to collective action that creates more equitable workplaces across the world.”
