“Woke” Delta Just Realized Georgia GOP Can’t Be Bullied

It’s always cool when a progressive “woke” business goes all “partisan” and then gets smacked in the face with facts.

And that’s just what happened to the Delta Airlines’ “communist wokesters.”

Since one of Delta’s hubs is in Atlanta, Delta feels it is their right and responsibility to address politics, despite the fact that they are just an airline.

The uproar is over a new Georgia voter integrity bill that the GOP just passed.

The statute, among other items, mandates voter identification, even though you vote by mail.

Delta took issue with this and labeled it “voter suppression,” despite the fact that you can’t board a Delta flight without displaying your ID several times.

Is that “flying suppression” or just sound judgment?

Well, it seems that Delta was a little too big for their communist britches, because the GA GOP didn’t take kindly to what the international airlines said, and they retaliated.

“Wow, this is incredible. Last night, Georgia Republicans voted to eliminate a Delta tax break in retaliation for Delta’s criticism of their voter suppression bill. “You don’t feed a dog that bites your hand,” a GOP leader admitted to this motivation.

After Delta Air Lines’ CEO opposed a huge bill overhauling voting laws in a state that narrowly voted for President Biden in 2020, Georgia Republicans took a last-minute shot at the airline.

The Georgia state House passed a bill repealing a tax exemption on jet fuel in the final hours of the legislative session, targeted squarely at one of the state’s biggest corporations and the largest provider of flights into and out of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

The bill was passed after Delta CEO Ed Bastian released a memo opposing the electoral reform plan, which critics have characterized as a modern version of Jim Crow laws that prevented Black Americans from voting.

“Last week, the Georgia legislature passed sweeping voting reform legislation that could make it more difficult for many Georgians, especially those in our Black and Brown communities, to exercise their right to vote,” wrote Bastian. “After taking time to fully understand everything in the bill and engaging with leaders and workers in the Black community, it is clear that the bill contains provisions that will make it more difficult for many underrepresented voters, especially Black v. White voters, to vote.

Early Thursday, House Speaker David Ralston (R) admitted that the move was intended as retribution.

According to Georgia Public Broadcasting, Ralston told reporters, “They like our public policy when we’re doing things that favor them, and they enjoy the benefits of those benefits and then turn around and do this.” “As you all know, I can’t help myself when it comes to a country boy line or two, and you don’t feed a dog that bites your side. That’s something you should hold in mind.”

Since the bill failed to pass the Senate, Delta would be able to maintain its tax breaks for the time being.

But there’s a lot of positive news here: the GOP is actually fighting back and not caving in to the large corporations, as they have in the past.
