I suppose the most annoying aspect of all of this is that U.S. corporations have done a lot of unethical things over the past decade that should be intellectually investigated.
Of course, intellectually investigating a entity means studying obscure financial documents. It means looking at the physical set-ups of various real buildings. It means analyzing tax related claims in the legal record. And so on.
Mindlessly screaming at somebody wealthy a set of partisan political buzzwords in front of a group of cameras doesn't have anything whatsoever to do with intellectual processes, even if such yelling can make you more famous given the meme-heavy era that we live in.
A toddler loudly clanging a set of spoons against a metal refrigerator isn't the same thing at all as a professional drummer for a jazz band starting a public performance.
