Georgia's Lt. Governor: I Will Kill Any Tax Benefits for Delta Until It Reinstates the Group Discounts for the NRA

Continuing the fight in the conservative party between those who recognize that most corporations have been captured by the left and are now being used as major power players in their unceasing political and culture war, and should be treated as hostile political actors, and those whose idea of "conservatism" consists chiefly of the idea that corporations are magical creatures, like unicorns, and must be allowed to do whatever they like without consequence even if it means declaring war on conservatives.



And he can do this:




The cucks, of course, have furrowed their brows:



They want to know what "right" the NRA has to discounts afforded to other organizations. Well, none -- which is the precise same level of right that Delta has to untaxed jet fuel.

But the cucks don't ask about that.

Speaking of, Colonel Schlichter says it's time to fight back, hard.

[T]he left is changing the rules and trashing our norms to do what they can't do politically through intimidation. They have cultural power and we don't, and they now seek to use businesses to destroy our rights and silence our voices. Understand that they donít want an argument or a conversation -- they want to use their non-governmental cultural power to deny us access to a platform so that we are unable to make our views heard. We need to recognize this dangerous trend and counterattack ruthlessly with our political power.

Conservatism is not a suicide pact, and our principles are not a mandate to unilaterally disarm. We need to make them hate the new rules. Maybe they won't learn anything, but at least they won't win by cheating.

The liberal elite is using its social and cultural ties to those at the helm of big companies to essentially blacklist the NRA, and thereby the tens of millions of Americans who support gun rights. But oppression is oppression whether it's done by a government bureaucrat or a corporate one, and our principle of non-interference in business assumes business stays out of politics. But now National, Hertz, and others are cutting ties to the NRA, and liberals are advocating banks do the same. Their intent is clear -- what they can't do in politics they will simply do by not allowing the representatives of people whose politics they don't like access to the infrastructure of society. And we're not supposed to do anything about it because, you know, free enterprise and stuff. You know, our principles.

No. They are exercising political power. We have our own political power, and we need to exercise it -- ruthlessly. The first step is an executive order at the federal level directing that no federal contract can go to any company that discriminates against an organization based on its advocacy or exercise of an enumerated constitutional right. We wouldn't allow a company to do business with our federal government if it discriminated on other grounds, so why should we do it discriminate on political grounds? Why should taxpayers be subsidizing people who hate them?

Time to get #Woke and stop living in 1997, Republicans.

As Schlichter says, we expect businesses to operate as businesses, open to all paying customers, not as political action committees or political clubs. If they decide to do the latter, that's their right, but it's also our right to use political action in return.
