Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), in an interview with “The Story” on Monday, slammed the MLB and other corporations’ in their response to the Georgia voting bill.
The MLB made the decision to boycott the state of Georgia after it passed a voting bill that requires voter ID as a sort of virtue signaling in support of the “voter suppression” narrative that the left is currently promulgating.
Now, they have decided to move the All-star game to Denver from Atlanta. Other corporations like Delta and Coca-Cola have voiced their staunch opposition to the bill.
Despite the fact that many blue states have even stricter voting laws, that has not stopped the woke corporations from seeking to undermine election integrity safeguards.
Delta CEO Ed Bastian remarked, “it’s evident that the bill includes provisions that will make it harder for many underrepresented voters, particularly Black voters, to exercise their constitutional right to elect their representatives.”
The bill actually expands the timeframe of absentee voting and places restrictions on handing out food and beverages within 150 feet of the polling location in efforts to diminish bribery activities. The Republican bill also requires voter present ID to ensure only eligible voters are partaking in this essential right of our republic.
In response to these woke companies, Sen. Paul said, “My point is if they want to boycott us, let’s boycott them. It’s the only thing that will teach them a lesson…We’ll see how they do when half the country quits drinking Coca-Cola and half the country quits using Delta.”
Paul also highlighted the hypocrisy of some of these woke companies doing business with China: “I can’t imagine they’re boycotting the Georgia state law and they do business with China. China has never seen a free election. China is putting people in jail for over a year at a time for speech violations. Yet they [MLB] do business with China.”
While many Americans have legitimate concerns about election integrity and security, the corporate backlash seeks to influence against any related legislative measures. Just as Sen. Paul suggested, if these woke companies don’t support our values, why would we support them with our business?
