As has become customary in America, the short political attention spans of the nation at large have focused all of the available focus we have on one subject at a time, with this week’s singular topic seeming to be the latest voting laws in the State of Georgia.
Peach State Governor Brian Kemp, just days ago, signed a new law into being that would restrict certain aspects of the voting process in Georgia. It became clear almost immediately that the law was wildly unpopular among Democrats and many Republicans, and Kemp was soon fending off attacks from politicians and corporations alike.
Among the backlash was a massive move by Major League Baseball, who moved the 2021 All Star Game out of Smyrna, Georgia on account of the law.
Now, former President Donald Trump is leading a boycott of the companies who are boycotting Georgia.
Former President Donald Trump doubled down on his criticism of companies that oppose Georgia’s new voting law, and widened his appeal for more boycotts.
“Never submit, never give up!” Trump said. In a statement, he added that his political opponents — the “Radical Left Democrats” — had long used brand boycotts to send messages.
“It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back — we have more people than they do — by far! Boycott Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS, and Merck. Don’t go back to their products until they relent. We can play the game better than them,” Trump said.
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has been adamant that the new law is just, and that he will not be backing down in the face of any pressure, corporate or otherwise.
