Exclusive: Anti-Woke 'Strive' Unveils $DRLL to Go to War Against BlackRock, 'Depoliticize Corporate America'

The anti-woke asset management firm Strive is taking on the likes of BlackRock to “depoliticize corporate America” so consumers can embrace commerce without compromising their values, Strive’s Head of Corporate Governance Justin Danhof says.

In an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, Danhof detailed how the “Big Three” asset management firms in the United States — BlackRock, State Street, and Vanguard — are using their trillion-dollar leverage to impose woke policies on the corporations they hold large stakes in.

Strive, Danhof said, has launched to tackle the Big Three’s grip on the asset management industry with a goal to end what he calls “an ideological cartel” in corporate America.

“We’re a new asset manager that has … just this new ambitious idea of taking on the behemoth Big Three which is BlackRock, State Street, and Vanguard that really acts as an ideological cartel these days,” Danhof said of Strive.

Danhof said environmental, social, and governance — known as ESG — is driving asset management firms to pressure corporations on a swath of left-wing issues.

“In a very large sense, what your audience sees every day with actions by Bank of America debanking gun clients or Nike pulling a Betsy Ross tribute shoe or Chevron and Exxon, for example, canceling energy projects here in the United States and abroad, a lot of the times you can actually point upstream and see that the largest shareholders of these companies are actually pressuring them to take these actions that are, again, going against the will of not only everyday citizens … but very often the folks who have their hard-earned money … with BlackRock, State Street, and Vanguard.” [Emphasis added].

Danhof said the climate change activism of BlackRock, State Street, and Vanguard is most hypocritical in the energy sector because for every project abandoned by an American energy company, another foreign-owned company is likely to pick up.

“BlackRock is one of the largest investors in a company that is poised to pick up any projects that an American company might abandon and that company just so happens to be PetroChina where BlackRock is the largest outside … one of the largest [investors],” Danhof said.

“Part of it is also a sideways attack because there are also a lot of shareholder proposals put forward to financing companies — such as JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, and Bank of America — that are telling them that they must align their financing with the goals of the Paris Climate Accord,” Danhof said.
