The left has been happy to repeatedly attack Georgia for its new voting law — a law they have repeatedly and purposely mischaracterized. And they have been sure to call for a boycott of the entire state and to pressure companies in the Peach State to decry the law and vow to fight it.
One of the Georgia businesses to buckle to woke pressure was Delta Air Lines. Though the company offered some support for the law when it was first signed, the left’s pressure got to the travel company’s higher-ups and they issued a rebuke of the law just a few days later, repeating the debunked lies and talking points used by President Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats and leftists.
Delta CEO Ed Bastian issued a statement claiming the law “could make it harder for many Georgians, particularly those in our Black and Brown communities, to exercise their right to vote.” The truth is that the bill actually makes it easier for people of every race to vote in person by expanding early voting and voting hours.
He further condemned the law, calling it “unacceptable” and something that “does not match Delta’s values.”
It’s an interesting stance to take for the CEO of a company that relies on the anti-democratic Communist Chinese government for billions of dollars in business every year while that very government is committing genocide against Uyghur Muslims.
And at least one lawmaker — Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio — is now calling out the “woke corporate hypocrites” at Delta.
What did Rubio say?
The Sunshine State senator posted a video to Twitter on Thursday ripping Delta for its glaring two-facedness.
“Delta Air Lines are business partners with the Chinese Communist Party — the same Chinese Communist Party that is committing genocide against Uyghur Muslims inside of China,” Rubio began. “So, I look forward to a letter today from from their CEO telling everyone that what the Chinese Communist Party’s doing with genocide is unacceptable. I look forward to that letter saying that genocide does not reflect the values of Delta Air Lines.”
But he’s not holding his breath.
“Of course, they’re not going to send that letter nor is Coca-Cola nor is any of these other corporations that are out there proving to the world how woke they are,” he continued. “Because they are woke corporate hypocrites. That’s what they are.”
In case anyone was confused, the senator made it clear why Delta wasn’t about to upset its commie applecart.
“They make billions of dollars in a country that doesn’t even have elections,” Rubio said. “They make billions of dollars working with a country that has no respect for anyone or anything — and they don’t say a word about it.”
But Delta is “prepared to boycott a state and condemn them publicly to show and prove how woke they are,” he concluded. “They’re hypocrites — complete and total hypocrites.”
