Trump made a bold push and I am willing to bet that the mainstream media will make it sound more like ‘violent rhetoric’. During the CPAC Saturday, Trump told conservatives to ‘fight back’ against the large corporations who have condemned Georgia’s election reform. “We have more people,” the president said while urging conservatives to boycott ‘woke’ corporations who’ve taken public political stances against voter security.
“For years the Radical Left Democrats have played dirty by boycotting products when anything from that company is done or stated in any way that offends them. Now they are going big time with WOKE CANCEL CULTURE and our sacred elections,” Trump wrote in a statement.
“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,” he continued.
‘We can play the game better than them,” Trump said.
The narrative that voter identification requirement somehow supports racism is an obvious ploy to demonize the notion that the voting system needs the same level of security as say, an airport. No one wants to support racism so it seems that the left is trying desperately to loop the two issues together to make voter security an unpopular idea.
Trump knows all too well how important voter fraud protection really is. He repeats in the letter how the 2020 election was rigged against him. The left still argues that his claims are unfounded, but which party supports voter identity requirements, and who wants to loosen the already lax system?
“They rigged and stole our 2020 Presidential Election, which we won by a landslide, and then, on top of that, boycott and scare companies into submission. Never submit, never give up! The Radical Left will destroy our country if we let them. We will not become a Socialist Nation. Happy Easter!” the former president wrote.
GPB and AJC reporter Greg Bluestein noted, “Some Georgia Republican state legislators are removing @CocaCola products from their statehouse offices after the Atlanta-based beverage giant criticized the new elections law.”
“Unfortunately, upon the passage of ‘Election Integrity Act of 2021,’ your company has made the conscious decision to perpetuate a national dialogue which seeks to intentionally mislead the citizens of Georgia and deepen a divide in our great state,” a number of state lawmakers wrote in a letter.

If you want to rent a car, cash a check, fly on a plane, or open a bank account you are required to provide state-issued identification. In some cases, like with banks, you need to provide at least two. Why in the world would we not want to extend that minimal security for something as sacred and precious as the American voting system?
