Ah, Georgia!

Georgeduh’s arguments, essentially

The pending boycotts of Georgeduh and Atlanta specifically got a local boost when Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines potentially joined them; MLB players association is supporting moving the All-Star Game out of Atlanta to protest the law; and President Handsome Joe Biden said he would ‘strongly support’ moving the Major League Baseball All-Star Game out of Atlanta. And all of this talk of boycotting the Capitol of the New South (motto: jus’ like th’ ol’ south but with better marketing!) is because of Georgeduh’s new voting law that restricts, you know, Voting While Black

Coke:

Delta:

“After having time to now fully understand all that is in the bill, coupled with discussions with leaders and employees in the Black community, 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. That is wrong. The entire rationale for this bill was based on a lie: that there was widespread voter fraud in Georgia in the 2020 elections. This is simply not true. Unfortunately, that excuse is being used in states across the nation that are attempting to pass similar legislation to restrict voting rights.”

Delta and Coke statements marked a belated step in the right direction, but we still would like to see these companies (and others) publicly back H.R.1 and cut off donations to GOP lawmakers who for shits and giggles are stripping democracy for parts.

Republicans are spooked! Georgeduh’s Gov. Brian Kemp released a whiney bitch statement:

…and the Coup Klux Klan in the Georgeduh legislature is plotting REVENGE on Delta with taxes:

Now, we are NOT saying that this is exactly like North Carolina’s notorious anti-transpeople bathroom bill, but that experience shows us that a broad-based pressure campaign —with two of the largest employers in Atlanta— starts to gain BIG TRACTION, well, something’s gotta give.

    AFAIK the Georgia Senate didn’t take up the House’s measure, so it’s effectively dead for this session. But, there’s always next time, right? And I’m sure that a lot of states that serve as Delta hubs would be more than welcoming if they decide to pull up stakes from The Heart Of The New Confederacy.

    Their gun fetishism seems to work well for them, as they’ve become experts in repeatedly shooting themselves in both feet.

      The last time the idiotic jawja republican legislature decided it was fine passing the odious “religious liberty” bill that would’ve discriminated against the LGBTQ community in the workplace, Delta threatened to leave GA for their expansive hub in Minneapolis before their CEO had a chat with then good ole boy guv Nathan Deal, who quickly vetoed the bill. However, Kemp, like fat nixon, refuses to listen to his advisors along with common sense, signed the bad legislation and who later claimed victim hood for being called out for being a racist asshole.

    If Delta making a statement against voter suppression is the same as shooting Republicans in the face with a shotgun, does that make Delta the good guys with the guns we’re always hearing about?

    Sort of a bitch when the invisible hand of the market shoots you in the face with a shotgun (and doesn’t tell you it’s coming; but you, in fact, asked for it).

    Um, Georgeduh shot themselves in the face. Also, they would be well served to take a look at what institutional racism did to Cairo, IL.
