A massive backlash has started, as calls from conservatives to boycott the company are growing. Coca-Cola seems to want to tone down the rhetoric.
If you go woke you go broke!
Coca-Cola now seems like it is trying to tone down it’s crazy woke virtue signaling. It may just be a little too late for the company though.
According to sources conservatives everywhere are just not happy with Coca-Cola spitting in their faces.
I am not too happy with them either. They make soda….not public policy! They need to stick to making quality products and profits for their shareholders.
All companies do. This is the point of a business. If Coke wanted to make social commentary and protest; they should have ended their soda business and started a social activism group.
Why are all these companies doing this? It is definitely not just Coke.
There was a time in America where politics were not discussed at the dinner table and business was business—what happened?

I was on the conference call with you a week or three ago in which – through the moderator – I asked what the criteria were for dropping the mask mandate you enacted.
The pap non-answer answer was what I expected: “Well, when the science says…” and “When the experts say it’s OK…” and so on.
My concern is that you still don’t have the guts to take the correct decision on your own, but instead you choose to keep relying on the same political calculation to which I referred in a prior GraniteGrok post:

A conservative group representing over 1,500 Orthodox Jewish rabbis has condemned Anti-Defamation League (ADL) Director Jonathan Greenblatt's letter calling on Fox News to fire Tucker Carlson for allegedly promoting "a classic white supremacist trope."
The Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV) objected to the call to fire Carlson in a letter sent to Greenblatt on Tuesday, insisting that his views were informed by "grossly misplaced charges of antisemitism" that the ADL has promoted under his leadership. Four days earlier, Greenblatt penned a letter to Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott accusing Carlson of espousing the racist "great replacement" conspiracy theory during a segment positing that Democrats hoped to "replace" right-leaning American voters with left-leaning immigrants.
They are only slapping you in the face with a feces soaked rag, because you let them.
The first lesson of my young life, about five or six years old, was that people, including brothers, will do to you whatever you allow them to do. Some are bound by a sense of decency, like a brother might be, but below that line, all's fair.
When I stood up for myself, even if he still pinned me and threatened to put bugs in my mouth until I relented, it became harder and harder for him to do so without a welt, bruise or his blood on himself. This was NOT an abusive relationship, it was an important teaching relationship. My brother was neither cruel, nor evil, he was just an older brother and when we occasionally had a conflict over something, it would come down to whoever was stronger, or, in some cases had more leverage. It made me stronger, tougher and when we got into conflicts with neighbor kids, we were a stronger and tougher team to contend with, because of it.

While they may have a majority in Congress, Democrats face an uphill battle with a bill to increase the number of justices on the Supreme Court from 9 to 13. Conservative critics don't expect them to succeed – and some even argue it will benefit Republicans.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) reportedly has no plans to bring the bill from Representatives Jerry Nadler (D-New York), Mondaire Jones (D-New York), and Hank Johnson (D-Georgia) to the floor for a vote. Senator Ed Markey (D-Massachusetts) also supports the legislation – but like Pelosi, Democratic Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, was noncommittal as well.

Yes, China Has the World’s Largest Navy. That Matters Less Than You Might Think. China’s fleet relies disproportionately on smaller classes of ships – and U.S. capabilities are bolstered by its allies’ navies.
Since the release of the Department of Defense’s “2020 China Military Power Report” this past September, much has been made of China’s securing the title of the “world’s largest navy.” Indeed, the United States Office of Naval Intelligence has confirmed that the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) has surpassed the United States Navy in total battle force ships, approximately 360 to 297, with future projections expecting the gap to grow. By 2025, the PLAN is predicted to field as many as 400 vessels whereas the United States plans only to field 355. Quantitative discussions of this sort have fostered an increasing level of hysteria in the U.S. media and even parts of its foreign policy and defense establishments.

Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) on Thursday slammed Dr. Anthony Fauci for failing to provide a timeline for life to resume as normal. Dr. Fauci has said Americans need to continue with COVID precautions, including mask-wearing, social distancing, and large gatherings.
“Dr. Fauci, when is the time? When do Americans get their freedom back?” Jordan asked during a House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis hearing.

Pictured is a young Chipman, who worked as an ATF agent for 25 years, posing in the aftermath of the Waco siege where 76 Brand Davidian members and five ATF agents died
Editor’s note: Both the National Shooting Sports Foundation and the National Rifle Association have come out against David Chipman, president Joe Biden’s pick to run the ATF. Below you’ll find articles from both organizations explaining exactly why they don’t believe Chipman should head the agency. If you agree, please CONTACT your U.S. Senators and tell them to oppose Chipman for ATF Director.
It’s hard to think of a worst possible nominee than David Chipman to run the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). President Joe Biden could have nominated Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, as he infamously promised him a gun control job at an El Paso campaign appearance. Or maybe even given the nod to Michael Bloomberg. It seems President Biden’s primary qualifications for the job are “must hate guns” and “belittle those who buy guns.”
