In light of the upcoming Georgia primary elections on Tuesday, Coca-Cola has decided to break with other “woke corporations” telling the Washington Examiner the best way to make “progress” as a nation is to “come together.”
The Atlanta-based corporation learned the hard way last year when they had previously denounced Georgia’s Voting Security Bill.
“We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together to listen, respectfully share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remain open to productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views,” the company said. “It’s time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy.”
“We want to be crystal clear and state unambiguously that we are disappointed in the outcome of the Georgia voting legislation,” said Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey in a statement earlier this month. “Throughout Georgia’s legislative session we provided feedback to members of both legislative chambers and political parties, opposing measures in the bills that would diminish or deter access to voting.”
Coca-cola is just one of many corporations that have had enough of the woke mob. Just last month Exxon Mobile told its employees that they are not to fly any LGBTQ+ flags outside of their buildings during June’s Gay Pride Month as they wished to remain neutral on the subject matter from here on out.
