A video has emerged that shows BlackRock’s chairman and CEO Larry Fink gloating to an audience about his plans to infiltrate society, via corporate America, with “woke” ideologies to “force behaviors” of the public.
ESG is a set of far-left criteria that pressures companies to become more “woke” to meet the standards.
As Slay News reported in January, Twitter boss Elon Musk famously blasted ESGs by remarking that the “S in ESG stands for Satanic.”

According to SG Analytics:
These scores, which range from 0-100, allow investors to compare a company’s performance to that of its competitors in the same industry and businesses from different sectors.
Poor performance is defined as a score of less than 50 and excellent performance as a score of more than 70.
The scores have become increasingly important in corporate America as stakeholders and potential investors look at them to evaluate a company for “diversity,” “equity,” “carbon footprint,” and radical left-wing ideology.
Unfortunately, corporate elites like Fink are taking advantage of ESG’s importance by adding in even more progressive categories such as “social vulnerability,” “disadvantaged or priority populations,” and “board of Directors’ diversity,” just to name a few.
A newly resurfaced clip from November 9, 2017, shows Fink laying out his plans for ESGs and gloating about how his company is “forcing behaviors” of the public with radical ideology, before “woke” had even been heard of.
“Well behaviors are going to have to change…you have to force behaviors and at BlackRock, we are forcing behaviors,” Fink declared.
He continued by boasting about how he is forcing increased diversity rates at BlackRock, regardless of competency or merit.
“What we’re doing internally is, if you don’t achieve these levels of ‘impact’, your compensation could be impacted,” Fink added.
Kenneth Chenault, who was the CEO and chairman of American Express, quickly interjected, “We’re doing the same thing.”
Fink continued, “You have to force behaviors and if you don’t force behaviors, whether it’s gender, or race, or any way you want to say, ‘the composition of your team,’ you’re going to be impacted.”
“We’re going to have to force change,” Fink concluded.
Why has everything gone woke these days? ESG scores.

The resurfaced clip garnered the attention of Elon Musk, who called the video “concerning” in a post on Twitter.

Fink’s ambitions to use ESG scores to force behavioral and staffing changes seem to have taken root.
Since Fink made these comments in 2017, we have seen an overwhelming trend of wokeism emerge in the corporate world.
