Let’s first get things in the correct perspective. The loud voices of the far-left (Media Matters, Act Blue, Share Blue, and all sub-groups therein) do an excellent job pressuring private industry to go along with their cultural wokeisms. They are a minority group, but they are loud and their Big Tech allies control the mechanisms that make the appearance of their voice seem bigger and larger than it is.
This approach has been progressively true since 2007. As a consequence they have an organized activation system to immediately target corporations to put pressure on them to respond to the approved politics of the left.
In the aftermath of the 2020 election, the Georgia legislature went to work reforming their election laws to make voter fraud harder, and election integrity a priority. This triggered the activist network; who then notify their leftist subsidiaries to swarm their corporate contacts. Now we are seeing the results of that activation.
What results is a major hypocritical position from the corporations who concede to the demands of the wokeists. Delta airlines puts out a statement against the Georgia election reform… but you need an ID to board a Delta flight. Apple puts out a statement deriding the Georgia election reform…. but you need an Apple ID to engage with Apple products, and there’s a password on an Apple phone for a reason, DUH!
But yet again, always remember…. In order for the far left to advance their political ideology they have to pretend not to know things. That is the essential underpinning of the hypocrisy they must ignore.
♦ Via NBC – CEOs for Delta Airlines and Coca-Cola came out in strong opposition to Georgia’s recently passed voting law on Wednesday, both calling the law “unacceptable.”
On Wednesday morning, Delta CEO Ed Bastian said in a memo to employees that the law is “unacceptable and does not match Delta’s values.”
“Let me be crystal clear and unequivocal, this legislation is unacceptable,” Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey said later that day on CNBC. (read more)
♦ WASHINGTON – Apple CEO Tim Cook criticized Georgia’s new voting law in an interview with Axios published on Thursday, joining a growing number of CEOs who have condemned the new measure, which is seen as making it more difficult for Blacks and other minority groups to vote.
“The right to vote is fundamental in a democracy. American history is the story of expanding the right to vote to all citizens, and Black people, in particular, have had to march, struggle and even give their lives for more than a century to defend that right,” Cook told Axios.
The Georgia voting legislation was signed by Gov. Brian Kemp (R) last week. The laws limit the use of ballot drop boxes, create new voter ID requirements and prohibit people other than poll workers from giving food and drink to voters standing in line at polls. (read more)
