Coca-Cola says it's 'time to find common ground'
on voting measures after pressure from the Right

Original Article

Coca-Cola, whose CEO denounced the Georgia voting bill, is now striking a conciliatory tone after coming under pressure from conservatives. The soda giant, which is based in Atlanta, was absent from a list of more than 500 corporations and individuals that signed a statement condemning any election legislation that would “restrict” voters from having “an equal and fair opportunity to cast a ballot.” The missive was placed as a two-page Wednesday ad in the New York Times and Washington Post, with the effort being organized by the Black Economic Alliance.

Or here's a novel thought - keep your mouth shut on political matters and stick to making soft drinks.

The two page 'letter' was very generic and bland. Who could be against democracy(!)? Yet Coke didn't sign it and neither did Delta (as pointed out in this article.) Who else didn't sign it? WDC (Disney), for one, didn't sign it. Most corporations didn't. Most of the '500' were individuals virtue signaling to the Democratic House and White House.

Looks like all of you who went without Coke for a few weeks were successful. It doesn't take much. Continue the boycott until Coke changes their position. Make them all hear you.

What's wrong, Coke? Alienating conservative patriotic customers like adding Mentos to drink? Nothing short of an apology and retraction will be considered "the Real Thing." Until then.....RC Cola deserves a second glance...and swig.

This is an extremely positive development if Coke is being honest. The left has a boatload of ways to steal elections, why die on the Georgia voting bill hill? Any slightly open door to reason is a huge chink in the monolithic ideologue left armor.

You'd think Coke would learn from a previous marketing fiasco called New Coke not to get sideways with the buying public again. But no, they step in it again by playing politics with the Georgia voting reform bill and lose at least half of their buying public again for the second time. Stockholders gotta be unhappy with their moron CEO and the Board of Directors will need to act as their stock value goes in the toilet. Coke is stuck on stupid.

Sorry #38, Pepsi was one of the companies that gave in to the BLM shakedown and gave them over $100,000,000 last year. They gave another $300,000,000 to other "black initiatives" (which are just other black shysters keeping $10,000 of every donation for every $1 that actually spend in the black communities). Nope, so far Dr. Pepper seems safe. But Coke and Pepsi are both far too "woke" for my tastes any more!!!

As America learned that a Columbus, Ohio police officer shot and killed a teenage girl while she was in the act of wielding a knife at two other girls, NBA star LeBron James took to Twitter and incited his followers against the police officer. James has 49.6 million Twitter followers and is a hero to millions for winning basketball championships. He is very influential. This is what he tweeted. I’d have blurred out the officer’s face, but the fact is, James’ tweet put it out there and the officer’s name has also been released. Columbus police made bodycam video of the shooting available very quickly after the incident.

A Minnesota jury has found former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter. This means they claim to have concluded that they unanimously believe beyond a reasonable doubt that Chauvin caused Floyd’s death. Given the circumstances of the trial, however, it’s extremely hard to believe the jury was solely concerned with either truth or justice. It’s extremely hard, if not impossible, for any thinking person not to have a reasonable doubt about the outcome. We know the judge in the case refused to sequester jurors from media coverage and outside influences during the trial, and that the pressure conveyed to them was beyond intense.

America’s cities did not burn last night. But the terrified preparations in Minneapolis and elsewhere in anticipation of the George Floyd verdict—the razor wire and barricades around government buildings, the activation of the National Guard, the declaration in Minnesota of a “peacetime emergency,” the fortified police presence, the curfews, the cancellation of school, the boarded up businesses—raise serious questions about the rule of law in the United States. Had the jury failed to convict Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin on all three counts of murder and manslaughter, the ensuing riots would likely have made the conflagrations of 2020 look like a Girl Scout campfire.

The British brought African slavery to American shores. The Democrats elevated slavery to a sacrament and fired the first shots in the Civil War to defend it. When the Democrats lost the Civil War, they initiated Jim Crow laws to marginalize Blacks. Despite this, Black Americans prospered, until the Democrats unleashed the mightiest weapon of all: killing them with "kindness." We're seeing the results of that play out across America.

Though the left would like to conflate the two incidents, the latter commanded a huge difference: the teen was about to plunge a knife into another girl.

The Democrats ought to be celebrating the three guilty verdicts the jury handed down in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin Tuesday. Chauvin faced three serious charges in the death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, and was found guilty on all three. Two of the charges are degrees of murder. Instead of acknowledging justice, Democrats from Joe Biden on down instead described it as “accountability” and insisted that it wasn’t enough. They pushed for the Senate to pass a set of federal changes to police law — I won’t describe the bill as “reform” until I’ve read its particulars myself, as most Democrat inititiatives deform

President Joe Biden on Tuesday filed an appeal seeking to force doctors and hospitals to perform potentially harmful transgender-related procedures and surgeries even if they hold objections.As outlined by BECKET Law’s Luke Goodrich, a court in January struck down the administration’s move to punish doctors who don’t perform transgender-related procedures for supposed “sex discrimination.” Biden on Tuesday officially appealed the ruling.“The plaintiffs are religious doctors, hospitals, and clinics who joyfully serve ALL patients regardless of sex or gender identity. They routinely provide top-notch care to transgender patients for everything from cancer to the common cold,” Goodrich outlined Tuesday.
