Coca-Cola has joined Delta in opposing the new voter ID law that was signed by Governor Brian Kemp last week.
The left claims that needing to show proof of identity when voting is somehow racist and oppressive. These are the same people who support vaccine passports. Let that sink in.
Wednesday’s comments by the CEOs of Delta and Coca-Cola triggered threats of backlash from Republican legislators who embraced the contentious election overhaul as a necessary measure to restore confidence. Kemp and other GOP leaders say they were caught off guard by the opposition, and some talked of punishing the airline during the final, frenzied day of the legislative session on Wednesday.
In the memo, Bastian said the new voting restrictions will make it harder for underrepresented voters, particularly Black voters, to exercise their constitutional right to elect representatives in the state.
“I need to make it crystal clear that the final bill is unacceptable and does not match Delta’s values,” Bastian said.
Coca-Cola chief executive James Quincey told CNBC later on Wednesday that the legislation is “wrong” and called on lawmakers to revisit it.
“This legislation is unacceptable. It’s a step backwards and it does not promote principles we have stood for in Georgia around broad access to voting, around voter convenience, about ensuring election integrity,” he said.
Kemp said he was blindsided by Delta’s position, saying that at “no point” did the airline raise objections with his office about some of the controversial provisions in the measure before he signed it into law.
“Today’s statement by Delta CEO Ed Bastian stands in stark contrast to our conversations with the company, ignores the content of the new law, and unfortunately continues to spread the same false attacks being repeated by partisan activists,” said the first-term Republican.
Kemp later also appeared later on CNBC to respond more broadly to corporate opposition.
“I would encourage these CEOs to look at other states they’re doing business in and compare the facts to what’s happening in Georgia,” he said, adding, “If they want to have a debate about the merits, the facts, of the bill then we should do that.”

Just another day in the day and age of cancel culture! Today they are cancelling the children’s book series “Captain Underpants.” The books are being pulled from libraries and book shelves after its publishes declared it “perpetuates passive racism.”
I read those books when I was in middle school, and I truly do not remember anything in them that could even be close to racist. Then again, everything today is racist. Just the character wearing white underwear is probably “racist” to the left.
