Woke Corporations Try To Blackmail Georgia for Tightening Election Security

Woke activist groups are pressuring corporations, businesses, and sports leagues to boycott the state of Georgia after Republican Governor Brian Kemp signed election reforms into law.

Sporting leagues, including Major League Baseball and the PGA Tour, are targets of the pressure to campaign to oppose the state’s new voting laws, which include mandating photo ID for absentee ballots. Democrats strongly oppose these reforms. Biden called it “Jim Crow in the 21st century.”

The Master’s Tournament and MLB All-Star Game are scheduled to be hosted in Georgia. Activist groups like National Black Justice Coalition and the Major League Baseball Players Association, a trade union, are demanding that the leagues take action to protest the new voting law.

“The PGA Tour and Masters Tournament have both made commitments to help diversify golf and address racial inequities in this country — and we expect them to not only speak out against Georgia’s new racist voter suppression law — but to also take action,” the National Black Justice Coalition said.

“Players are very much aware of the Georgia voting bill, which places restrictions on voting that some believe will make it particularly difficult for black voters to reach the polls,” the executive director of the MLB Players Association said. “As it relates to the All-Star Game, we have not had a conversation with the league on that issue. If there is an opportunity to, we would look forward to having that conversation.”

Stacey Abrams’ organization, the New Georgia Project, and Martin Luther King Jr.’s daughter have warned that a boycott could “hurt middle-class workers and people grappling with poverty” in the Georgia. Meanwhile, other groups such as Black Voters Matter and the African Methodist Episcopal Church are boycotting major global companies that have headquarters or operate in Georgia, including Coca-Cola, until they make a public opposition against the voting laws.

“[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,” Bishop Reginald Jackson said at a rally in Atlanta last week. Shortly after, #BoycottCocaCola starting trending on Twitter.

Coca-Cola recently released a statement saying that the company agreed with election “improvements that would enhance accessibility, maximize voter participation, maintain election integrity, and serve all Georgians.”

  1. Something truly needs to be done about our voting methods. It is totally obvious that voting fraud was significant in the last Presidential election. If this will correct that major issue I am all for it.

  2. The heck with them. Let them move. Not sure why the people still support sports. Making millionaires out of people and then get screwed over by them. I don’t watch or go to any games.

    • I’m confused…why does this make it harder for black/brown people to vote?! It’s like the very people protesting are feeding the narrative that black/ brown people haven’t ever obtained IDs & don’t know how to obtain them. And as biden said “black & brown people don’t know how to use computers or the internet”. Fighting racism with racism?! Black/brown use IDs all the time. “Racism/racist” has ceased to have any valid meaning because it’s now attached to everything

  3. We should then push narrative that you have to have proof of vaccine in order to vote! LOL. If Dems want to have proof of vaccine to travel, then in order to leave the state, you need to show the barcode on your phone, right? So in order to vote, you should at least have to show the same barcode!!!!!

  4. These are not woke …they are stupid , asinine fools pushing their crazy agenda on Americans. Cancel culture is a failure and intelligent Americans will not allow these vultures to screw over our nation and its values and history. Tell them to take a leap off a tall bridge.

  5. Wait! Have Black and Hispanic people in Georgia been complaining about access restrictions at liquor stores or at airports??? Why not?? How can they dig out their wallets/purses for an ID to buy booze or fly to Washington DC, but can’t do it to vote ??? Isn’t it racist to assume Blacks and Hispanics are intimidated by IDs, but white voters are not ?? What mental midgets are protesting this law anyway?

  6. Let them boycott Georgia. They aren’t worth it. All Georgia is asking for is to properly validate a ballet. The Dems want to make sure they have plenty of time to destroy this country. We’re with you Georgia. Keep up the good work.

  7. Corporations should stay out of politics and not be forced by any orginizations. PERIOD!!
    Answer is don’t buy or use their products or services, if they voice an opinion.
