In a further sign that the ongoing culture war also has a class dimension, metropolitan commentators have begun heaping praise on America’s C.E.Os for their lockstep adherence to progressive values.

An article in the New York Times praises “the moral voice of corporate America,” talking up C.E.O-led efforts to “rebuke” President Trump following the Charlottesville controversy.

The article hilariously quotes PepsiCo board member and Ford Foundation President Darren Walker, who says he and other corporate figures are “speaking truth to power.”

The forthright engagement of these and other executives with one of the most charged political issues in years — the swelling confidence of a torchbearing, swastika-saluting, whites-first movement — is “a seminal moment in the
history of business in America,” said Darren Walker, the president of the Ford Foundation and a board member at PepsiCo.

“In this maelstrom, the most clarifying voice has been the voice of business,” he said. “These C.E.O.s have taken the risk to speak truth to power.”

Meanwhile, progressive bastion published another article. Unlike the New York Times, they are more critical of “corporate morality.” They also go further than the Times in declaring that the corporations of America are starting to fulfil the role previously served by Christian churches.
