A World Economic Forum (World Economic Forum) speaker declared before attendees at this year’s globalist summit in Davos, Switzerland that leftist non-governmental organizations (NGOs) must “hit back” at so-called “right-wing groups.”
Richard Edelman, the CEO of the global communications corporation Edelman, was a panelist in a discussion about “disrupting distrust.”
While addressing the audience of global elites at the lavish Swiss ski resort, Edelman called for NGOs to attack “right-wing groups” and weaken public trust in them.
Edelman took aim at “right-wing groups” for promoting so-called “disinformation” that links globalist organizations to “Elitist Bill Gates and George Soros,” Fox News reported.
The corporate head said among the recent “sadnesses” he’s endured has been the “deterioration of trust” in radical NGOs.
Fox News added that Edelman claimed corporations are trusted more than NGOs these days when it comes to fixing societal issues.
“My hypothesis on that is right-wing groups have done a really good job of disenfranchising NGOs,” he said, according to the cable network.
“They Havechallenged the funding sources.
“They Haveassociated you with Elitist Bill Gates and George Soros.
“They Havesaid that you’re world people, as opposed to actually what you are, which is local.”
One method for restoring that trust is for NGOs to fight back against right-wing groups, Edelman asserted.
“You guys are great at punching but terrible at taking a punch,” he warned.
“You have to learn to do two things: One is preempt.
“When they’re going to punch you, you gotta know they’re gonna punch you and say, ‘Why are they punching us?’ and … we call it pre-bunking.
“The other is when they hit you and they’re inaccurate, hit back. Don’t take it.”

Edelman and other panelists acknowledged that people opposed to environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals in the private sector are also forcing companies to reassess how to talk about those goals.
When a representative of the Anti-Defamation League said companies are starting to shy away from the explicit use of “ESG” as a corporate goal, Edelman encouraged companies to hold firm.
“Business needs to stand its ground,” he added.
However, Edelman also said to be sure things don’t veer away from financial considerations in favor of “chasing some woke illusion,” Fox News said.
“Focus your attention on four issues: sustainability, on jobs and re-skilling, focus on diversity, equity and inclusion, and geopolitics, like ‘Get out of Russia,’” he urged.
“But don’t take on every issue.”

The panel’s moderator, New York Times opinion editor Kathleen Kingsbury, said another issue related to trust is the “disinformation” seen on social media sites, saying there are lingering questions about the extent to which Big Tech companies can remove this content. […]
On that issue, Edelman proposed that companies do all they can to defund sites that spread disinformation.
He then appeared to take a thinly veiled swipe at Elon Musk’s free speech plan for his social media company Twitter.
“I think the first thing … that business needs to do is deprive platforms that spread disinformation of oxygen,” he told the audience of world leaders, policymakers, and global corporate elites.
“Pull your promotion money.”
