Marco Rubio, of All People, Blasts Delta and Coca-Cola for Attacking Georgia for Its Voter Law, While Continuing to Give the Concentration-Camp Operating Communist Chinese Regime They're in Bed With a Free Pass

Apparently corporations are now taking their political cues exclusively from noted Lifelong Lover of Reading the First Page of a Book, LeBron James. He loves taking selfies of himself reading books. But strangely, always the first few pages. Never when he's on page 230.

Byron York notes that Delta tried to pander to the activist left -- but is now hated by everyone.

Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio spoke to the company directly, at least through Twitter: "Dear Delta, You are business partners with the Communist Party of China. When can we expect your letter saying that their ongoing genocide in #Xinjiang is 'unacceptable and does not match Delta's values'???" On Wednesday morning, Rubio posted a video in which he said of Delta's CEO and other woke corporate leaders, "They're hypocrites -- complete and total hypocrites."

Other Republicans spoke out too -- see the link.

I highlight Marco Rubio because he was, of course, homoerotically beloved by the corporate Conservative, Inc. grifters in 2016.

Strangely enough, these corporate PR reps have largely abandoned their previous slobbering love affair with Marco Rubio.

The backstory makes Delta, and Bastian, look even worse. Just last week, Delta released a statement praising improvements in the bill -- on absentee voting, weekend voting, poll worker flexibility, and more. Even though Delta conceded that "concerns remain over other provisions in the legislation," the assessment was basically positive.

The statement prompted some ugly blowback from the left. Former MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann tweeted, "Do not fly Delta. Do not spend money with Delta. Boycott Delta. Ruin Delta." The hashtag #BoycottDelta began to fly around on Twitter.

Talk of punishing Georgia grew. On Wednesday night, President Biden said he would "strongly support" moving the baseball All-Star game set for July 13 in Atlanta. "This is Jim Crow on steroids, what they're doing in Georgia," Biden said. The president has consistently mis-stated what is in the Georgia law. As Karl Rove outlines here, Biden has leveled three specific accusations against the law, and all three are false.

This is why I despise -- personally despise -- the corporate shills of Conservative, Inc.

They always scold the right for counter-pressuring these corporations -- without ever taking notice of the fact that the left, from its activist core through congressmen through the (fake) president himself, are themselves constantly pressuring these corporations to propagate the political agenda of the hard left -- and are constantly succeeding.

How about your corporate cvcks stop attacking the right for applying reactive counter-pressure and start attacking the left for applying the original pressure?

And how about you start telling your Corporate Benefactors to stop joining in the left's nonstop unamerican socialist totalitarian political campaigning? How about you dare to put your checks in danger by once slapping, or even gently pushing away, the corporate hands that feed you?

But no: Can't do that. That's not the hill to die on.

Attacking conservatives for meanly bullying tiny innocent defenseless mega-corporations -- that's the hill to die on, by gum!

Says so right in the signature line of our checks.

The corporations will allow themselves to be pressured by the left but never by the right and that is the Marching Orders they send out to their Conservative, Inc. minions: tell the right to shut up. Attack Republicans for fighting back.

Let us join the Corporatist Totalitarian Socialist Super-State of the left, like we want to do.

Stop all this insolent back-talk from actual real conservatives who aren't on our payrolls.
