Leftist claws come out for Coca-Cola for not becoming an activist in fight against Ga voter integrity bill

Corporate America is learning the hard way that there’s no satiating the beast when it comes to the radical left, that the more companies capitulate to the progressive left, the more they seem to demand.

Atlanta-based Coca-Cola now finds itself being targeted for a boycott — for doing nothing.

That is, the extremist elements that now control the Democratic Party are going after the carbonated soft drink manufacturer for not denouncing the effort by the Georgia legislature to shore up concerns about voter integrity in the state.

Or, in the eyes of Democratic propogandists, a voter suppression bill that harks back to the Jim Crow era — of course, this is a media-enabled lie, but the left doesn’t allow a little thing like facts to get in the way of a good political narrative.

The AME Sixth Episcopal District said Thursday it will call for a statewide boycott of Coca-Cola until it denounces the GOP election integrity bill, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

So-called Bishop Reginald Jackson said he wants to send the message that if “Coca-Cola wants black and brown people to drink their product, then they must speak up when our rights, our lives and our very democracy as we know it is under attack.”

“We will speak with our wallets,” he said. “This past summer, Coke and other corporations said they needed to speak out against racism. But they’ve been mighty quiet about this.”

Never mind that the bill is not about racism, nor is it voter suppression. These are lies from the left to ensure a wide open voting process with few checks and balances.

Georgia’s Republican Gov. Brian Kemp signed the sweeping election reform bill into law Thursday evening.

According to reports, the new law imposes voter identification requirements to vote by mail, limits voter drop boxes and allows the state to take over local elections or remove local elections officials if there’s a determined need to intervene.

Georgia Democratic state Rep. Park Cannon was arrested after appearing outside the governor’s office and banging on the door.

Crying “Jim Crow 2.0,” Democrats pushed the myth that the efforts to shore up voter integrity was voter suppression, and Cannon went so far as to try and interrupt Kemp during a livestream event discussing the new bill.

Cannon was removed from the building by state troopers and booked into the Fulton County jail on charges of obstruction of law enforcement, and preventing or disrupting General Assembly sessions or other meetings.

With the introduction of the toxic critical race theory as serious policy, and the boost the effort received from exploiting the death of George Floyd, a man who had a fatal level of fentanyl in his system when he died, the left has declared that “silence in no longer an option.”

Meaning either you parrot their radical ideology and beliefs or face being canceled.

And Coca-Cola has been the target of local activists for some time now.

The company said it supported a “balanced approach to the elections bills that have been introduced in the Georgia Legislature this session,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

“The ultimate goal should be fair, secure elections where access to voting is broad-based and inclusive,” Coca-Cola added.
