In the aftermath of the mess that was the 2020 election, states are scrambling to pass voter integrity laws. Surprise, surprise, Democrats are flipping out. Major corporations, apparently run by leftists, have been condemning these fundamental laws, going out of their way to attack conservative states.
There’s good reason the left is so angry; they know they wouldn’t have won 2020 without major holes in state elections. With state lawmakers fixing those “irregularities,” Democrats have fewer chances to cheat in the future.
You probably heard about Delta attacking Georgia. Now, American Airlines released a statement attacking Texas for passing their own election integrity bill. But soon after their CEO virtue signaled to the left, the Texas Lt. Governor had something to say.
“Earlier this morning, the Texas State Senate passed legislation with provisions that limit voting access,” American Airlines said in a statement… “To make American’s stance clear: We are strongly opposed to this bill and others like it.” …
“As Lt. Governor of Texas, I am stunned that American Airlines would put out a statement saying ‘we are strongly opposed to this bill’ [Senate Bill 7] just minutes after their government relations representative called my office and admitted that neither he nor the American Airlines CEO had actually read the legislation,” Patrick said.
“We heard these same outcries claiming voter suppression in 2011 when Texas passed the photo voter ID bill. In fact, just the opposite occurred. Voter turnout in Texas soared from 7,993,851 in 2012 to 11,144,040 in 2020, a 39 percent increase. Gubernatorial election voter turnout has increased by 76 percent since photo voter ID was passed.” [Source: Daily Wire]
We said this after Delta attacked Georgia’s bill—and it’s true for American. Their CEO—who boldly attacked Texas for passing a voter bill—didn’t even read the bill he was criticizing.
Hmm… are all liberal CEOs this stupid? Or do they just blindly believe whatever CNN tells them?
And can someone explain to me why airlines—of all businesses—are attacking voting laws? What skin in the game do they have? Are they really outraged that Texas would pass a law to protect our democracy? What are they going to do, withdraw their business from Texas or Georgia?
Yeah, I’d like to see that happen. After the year they’ve had, a major airline will stop functioning in a state over a voter bill!
It’s peak hypocrisy. These leftist idiots have no intentions of moving from Texas or Georgia. Nor do they think their statements will change anything. They just want everybody to know they are on the side of the party that cheated to steal the 2020 election. That’s it. Nothing will come from their bogus and pathetic statements.
Well, except, perhaps Republicans striking back. Georgia is poised to punish Delta by withdrawing a massive tax break. Who knows what Texas might do in response to American’s ridiculous virtue signaling? Patrick slammed companies that “don’t share our values” and try to “dictate public policy.”
This move just might bite American in the butt.
