For the sake of kindness and the Christmas season, I’ve decided not to mention the name of the bank that has provided this towering example of pure blather. Rather than link to their page, I will just quote extensively from it. Besides which, this kind of nonsense is endemic in American business today.
Got your Blather Bingo cards ready? Let’s go!
“Our family-like culture brings teams together where colleagues collaborate and are empowered to make decisions. From day one, we have been driven always to do the right thing…” (I feel safer already, don’t you?)
“Our core values not only represent the foundation of our company, but guide us in everything we do…” (Funny–I thought religion was supposed to do that.)
“We empower employees to work together with partners in the community and internal fellow teammates…
“We promote sustainable growth…” Yatta-yatta.
All this stuff about “core values” that guide them through all of life–but no mention of what those “values” might be, exactly. We infer from the subheads that they may be Engagement, Quality, Innovation, Relevance and Sustainability.
Relevance? What are they talking about? Relevant to what? To whom? Or is this just a lot of tossed word salad?
Somehow bankers have taken it into their heads that they ought to sponsor homosexual “pride parades” and other exercises in culture collapse. It doesn’t have anything to do with being good stewards of their depositors’ money, does it? But their ranks are full of recent college graduates for whom PC blather is the mother tongue. And they’d like to play a part in some “fundamental transformation” of America into God knows what–and pray we never find out.
Defund the universities.
Break the teachers’ unions.
Stop this stuff before it stops our country.
