McConnell slams ‘woke’ corporations for bowing to Democrats’ false Georgia voting law narrative

The controversial, recent voting reform law passed in Georgia triggered an avalanche of “woke” corporate reactions — to the tune of hundreds of major companies and organizations either strongly condemning the law or protesting it by pulling events out of the state.

According to The Hill, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) broke his silence on what he labeled the “Outrage-Industrial Complex” and warned major companies, especially Georgia-based companies like Coca-Cola and Delta Air Lines to stop with the protests, as they’re based on false information that was spread by several high-profile Democrats, including President Joe Biden. 

What’s going on?

Critics of the new Georgia voting law falsely claim that it’s a form of “voter suppression,” when, in fact, it actually provides increased opportunities for residents of the state to have ample time to take care of their voting business in future elections.

What really seemed to fuel the fake news surrounding the bill was Biden’s blatantly false assessment that it prevented working-class citizens in the state from voting and was reminiscent of the Jim Crow era. Biden’s claims were literally outright lies — the usually Biden-friendly Washington Post hammered the president last week with a rare, “Four Pinnochio” rating as a result of his lies concerning the new law.

After America’s president spread the falsehoods, companies, and corporations like Major League Baseball (MLB) reacted swiftly, even going as far as pulling their extremely popular and economically beneficial All-Star Game from Georgia in protest of the new law.

Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey joined the knee-jerk outrage reaction, expressing his disappointment in the new law while pushing for the Democrat-led effort to pass federal voting reforms, known as H.R. 1.

“We all have a duty to protect everyone’s right to vote, and we will continue to stand up for what is right in Georgia and across the U.S.,” Quincey said.

McConnell fires back

The Kentucky senator might have been quiet over the past few months, but he certainly wasn’t shy about expressing his anger with the number of corporations that have suddenly jumped into the “woke” political arena.

“It’s jaw-dropping to see powerful American institutions not just permit themselves to be bullied, but join in the bullying themselves,” McConnell said, adding that Georgia’s laws are actually more voter-friendly than laws currently on the books in New York, where multiple corporations reside, yet have not reacted in the same way as they are in Georgia.

“There is no consistent or factual standard being applied here. It’s just a fake narrative gaining speed by its own momentum,” the Senate Minority Leader added.

One can also not dismiss the massive and free public relations boost that corporations like Coca-Cola, Delta Air Lines, and others are experiencing by exploiting extremely polarizing political issues to generate publicity that otherwise can’t be bought with even the largest of marketing budgets.

Only time will tell if the latest class of “woke” corporations realize that Americans are sick and tired of companies injecting into politics and returning to business as usual, but I’m afraid that tactic is only in its infancy and will continue to be used in the future.

    No more for me-done with it.

  4. BIDEN is a jerk. And not only apologize to Georgia, but should apologize to the rest of the American. I guess he is eating crow, as some of us are not going to purchase those things or watch MLB, especially since they have sold out to the CCP. But that is Biden, as he has sold out to CCP when Hunter started working for them. Taking Air Force 2 to China with his son and Bobolinski and then lied to the entire United States saying he never got involved with Hunter’s business. I think they ought to check it out and see if Joe has any offshore accounts and see how much is in them, and where that money came from. I think they will be surprised. Sleepy Joe is in China’s back pocket and is selling us out to them and the rest of the world. Russia and China and cheering that he is our President. Him, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer and AOC, all should be impeached. They are a hazard to our government and the U.S. Constitution

  5. I guess this is how the republic dies..
    At the hand of Marxist Chinese goons

  6. Oh my gosh, I got deleted because I dared to speak out against Coke and Delta. I didn’t use any bad language I just suggested that I would quickly take my money out of their stock. Wonder if this one will get deleted. If so, so much for free speech.

    1. Send those woke companies your statements-google them and then you’ll be sure they receive your thoughts

  7. I think there are far more people who will stand up for voter ID than these corporations realize. I hope people will stop buying your products because I know I will. What is right is right and what is wrong is the left!

  8. Well Biden didn’t do delta or coke any favors They are so stupid to favor any politician. Coke just lost half of the American people. Hope they learned something. Keep your mouth shut. I am done no more coke for me

  9. These corporations should understand that they are eliminating 80 million customers from their customer list’s
