Skip to comments.After Georgia’s Record Voter Turnout, When Will Coca-Cola Apologize For Lying About State Election Law?

An election integrity group ran a full-page ad in one of Georgia’s most notable newspapers on Sunday demanding that The Coca-Cola Company apologize for lying about the state’s 2021 voting law that enhanced the overall security of its elections.
Run by the Honest Elections Project in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the ad highlights the soda company’s role in smearing Georgia’s election law as “‘a step backward’ that would ‘diminish or deter access to voting’” in the state.
“After Georgia made it easier to vote and harder to cheat, the state saw its most successful election in history, shattering records for early and absentee voting,” the ad reads. “Coca-Cola should APOLOGIZE for putting woke politics over safe & secure elections and the people of Georgia.”
Following Georgia GOP Gov. Brian Kemp’s signing of the bill known as SB 202 into law in March 2021, Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey issued a statement insisting the law would “diminish or deter access to voting,” while claiming the company would shift its focus toward “supporting federal legislation that protects voting access and addresses voter suppression across the country.”
“We all have a duty to protect everyone’s right to vote, and we will continue to stand up for what is right in Georgia and across the U.S.,” he said.
But Quincey wasn’t the only one to take aim at Georgia’s voting law. Not long after the bill’s passage, President Joe Biden referred to the law as “Jim Crow on steroids” and called on Major League Baseball to relocate its All-Star Game from Atlanta in protest. The MLB ultimately acquiesced, moving the game to Colorado and costing the state upwards of $100 million in revenue.
Despite Democrats’ slanderous claims, SB 202 does not make it more difficult for Georgians to vote in elections. Among the changes to the state’s election laws are voter ID requirements for absentee voting as well as restrictions on giving voters gifts or money within 150 feet of a polling place. Early voting is also expanded under the law, with counties now required to “offer two Saturdays of early voting instead of just one.”
Contrary to the left’s predictions that the law would suppress Georgians’ ability to vote, the state has since experienced record-shattering early voting numbers throughout the 2022 midterms. Ahead of the Nov. 8 election, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office announced that more than 2.4 million votes had been cast by Nov. 4, compared to the 1.6 million votes that had been cast by the same time in 2018. The runoff election between Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican Herschel Walker has also seen record turnout for early, in-person voting.
Coca cola will never apologize
Joe Biden will never say he was wrong to say this law was Jim Crow.
Stacy Abrams and her cast of idiots will never say that they were wrong about that law.
Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred will never ever say that he was wrong to move the All-Star Game, based on the false propaganda surrounding that law.
Liberals never say they’re wrong about anything. Liberals never apologize, even if there is demonstrable proof , such as in this case ,that they were wrong.
That’s just how these things go.
I’ll take D) Never Alex.
Next get Chapek to apologize.
Is it possible to sue MLB?
It's just the new way in many states. That and ballot harvesting. Just think of all the 51/49 races we could win if repubs took advantage of the new rules like the dems are doing. CA GOP is doing it and a big reason why dems lost the US house. I bet AZ repubs start doing it next time. I would think early on person or dropping a ballot off in person, 1-2 days before election day in both cases would be best. Don't let them possess your ballot for two weeks. Gives them more time to mess around.
There is a well established principle in the political and business culture and I have seen ‘success lecturers’ support it for individuals, it is quite simple; Never, never, say you are wrong about anything and absolutely never apologize. Doing either of these things puts one in the down position in any controversy and your opponents will use it relentlessly against you. No one bargains in good faith, it is just that simple. In interpersonal relationships, men should never admit to cheating on the woman as she will continually use such an admission to flip the power relationship. The man may provide all the financial support to the relationship, but an admission of cheating is seen by women as proving she ‘is always right about about everything for as as the relationship exists. Practice deny, deny, deny, the woman may suspect the man but without good forensic evidence can never be sure and that helps the man to keep his up position intact.
Frpm what I have seen of business and government and the female mentality this appears to me to be wise and correct advice. Admitting you did wrong gets one nothing but trouble and possibly destruction. The other people don’t care about truth, they care about power or they are sadists who like to inflict pain.
It wasn’t harder to cheat. 🙄
I just wish the GOP could get a 100% turnout.
