In Wake of Delta Using Its Corporate Power and Money to Agitate for the Democrats' Fraud-Seeking Vote Schemes, The Georgia GOP House Votes to Strip Delta of Its State-Provided Tax Breaks

Good. #War.

It's time to finally fight back against #WokeCorporatism, using the most obvious weapons we have.

The left has pressured corporations to advance the left's political agenda.

It's time to put aside the childish "libertarian" approach where we pretend we're letting corporations act freely and without political pressure -- ignoring the fact that the left (including Democrat politicians) pressure them every single day with threats both implicit and explicit.

There is no "libertarian" position in the middle of a war. You either win or you die.

The Georgia House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to strip Delta Air Lines of a tax break that was worth tens of millions of dollars in response to CEO Ed Bastian's condemnation of Georgia's recently passed voting reform law as "unacceptable."

Georgia's bill, which has been the subject of widespread disinformation and lies by prominent Democratic politicians, has provoked calls for boycotts of Georgia-based corporations by civil rights activists who have argued that these companies should do more to speak out against the law.

As if on command, a number of those corporations or their CEOs issued statements that often repeated false Democratic talking points about the law, including Delta CEO Ed Bastian.

In his statement, Bastian echoed the widely repeated talking point that "could make it harder for many Georgians, particularly those in our Black and Brown communities, to exercise their right to vote." In fact, the bill expands early voting and voting hours and generally made it easier for people of all races to vote -- in person.

Bastian condemned the law, stating, "I need to make it crystal clear that the final bill is unacceptable and does not match Delta's values."

Well, maybe Delta's pro-coup values no longer match Georgia citizens' values.

Bullies only stop when you bloody their noses, and it's time to start delivering A LOT of bloody noses to our would-be Corporate Overlords.

It's time for a fucking REVOLT.

Get ready for the paid corporate propagandists of Conservative, Inc. to roar into action -- suddenly discovering, "Here lies a hill worth dying on!" -- as the people paying their mortgage demand value-for-money.

Also needing a bloody nose: Coca-Cola. Which should also be disburdened of any tax benefits the Racist State of Georgia is offering them.


Coke's CEO James Qunicy is not even a US citizen.

He's a British man who believes he has the power to tell America what its government should be like.

Once upon a time, Americans didn't take too kindly to that.
