I’m often amused, but never amazed at how easily offended the left is about just about everything. They are quite good at taking every issue and turning it into a reason for yelling a primal scream of RACISM!
The state of Georgia recently passed some election reforms they needed in light of the disaster of the trainwreck of the 2020 election process there. Governor Brian Kemp and the legislature in Georgia worked hard to make to make it easier to vote, but harder to cheat. Throughout the process of the bill, the Governor and legislators were in touch with citizens and with Georgia-based corporations like Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines and everyone seemed to agree that it would be good to expand voting opportunities, but to require some form of ID for ensuring that votes were cast by legally qualified Georgia voters.
But after the bill passed and Joe Biden called it a resurrection of Jim Crow laws, those same corporate execs went all squishy. The CEO of Delta Airlines, which is the airline I fly on almost every week, said the bill didn’t reflect Delta’s values, but he never identified which values were not being reflected. The CEO of Coca-Cola also complained, but likewise couldn’t name one specific problem with the law.
In fact, Georgia EXPANDED the number of days one can vote early, and made provisions to accommodate even Sunday voting. It did prohibit candidates or political parties passing out food or beverage to people standing in voting lines, but completely allowed for people to be given water or other items by the election officials. Makes sense not to let political candidates give out beverages and food which could sure seem to violate the law of giving something of value for a vote.
Major League Baseball was supposed to play the 2021 All-Star Game in Atlanta, but the Baseball Commissioner was so upset at GA that he arbitrarily moved the game from Atlanta to Denver. The irony as pointed out by many was that in fighting a phony charge of racism, he actually moved the game from one of the blackest cities in America to one of the whitest. But the Commissioner seems not to be too offended by Georgia, since he’s still keeping his membership at the Augusta National Golf Club, which is of course also in Georgia.
The outrage for companies like Woke-a-Cola, Delta, Nike, and Major League Baseball is that they do a growing share of their business with Communist China, which means they’d rather link up with and be partners with the Chinese communists than with the hard-working people of Georgia!
The Chinese are slaughtering Uyghur Muslims, using children for slave labor, cheating on trade and intellectual property, and imprisoning people for even trying to speak out, much less vote on issues. I tweeted last week that “ I’ve decided to “identify” as Chinese. Coke will like me, Delta will agree with my “values” and I’ll probably get shoes from Nike & tickets to major league baseball games. Ain’t America great?”
Next thing you know I’m trending on Twitter and being called a racist because knuckleheads in the media allege I’m using hate speech on Asians. Huh? It had nothing to do with ethnicity and anyone with IQ above stinkweed knows that. It was about the hypocrisy and duplicity of high-horsed globalist companies who look the other way while they make billion dollar deals with China but pretend that GA is returning to racism and Jim Crow. It’s so outrageous that even the Washington Post called Joe Biden out for lying.
People were calling for ME to be canceled and censured and demanding I apologize. For what? Saying that it’s hypocrisy for big companies to lie about the state of Georgia and try to bully the Governor there but to ignore the real abuses being conducted by the Communist Chinese Party? I will NOT back down and I’m so glad the Governor of Georgia won’t either.
We’ve got to stop allowing the loons on the left to destroy this country with lies while Christian people are disparaged and called racists. We must stand for and speak out for the truth. I’m not calling for a boycott of Woke-a-Cola or Delta or even the cowardly commissioner of Major League Baseball. I just call for people to stand up, speak up, and stop surrendering to the insanity of calling everything racist so one doesn’t have to actually discuss an issue or defend an irrational position. As my pastor used to say, “If you don't stand for something, you’ll fall for anything!” Friends, it’s time to STAND!
