(ReliableNews.org) – When Georgia passed its election security law, big corporations immediately started taking punitive action against the state. Major League Baseball pulled the All-Star Game out of Atlanta and other companies released statements condemning the state. That reaction by companies led one Republican senator to issue a warning.
In a scathing April op-ed, Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) slammed “woke Corporate America.” The senator said that while companies are trying to prove how “sophisticated and morally superior” they are, they have “destroyed working people’s jobs and hurt many minority businesses” who are already suffering in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. He went on to say the companies are actually “morally inferior” to working class America and there is a “massive backlash coming” in 2022 when Republicans take back the House and Senate.
Rick Scott just absolutely nailed the “you didn’t dump me, I dumped you” tone in this piece. Bravo!

Many Republicans have expressed similar sentiments in the last month and Democrats have attacked them for it. Nonetheless, the GOP is in a good position to take back the majority in Congress during the midterms. If that happens, it will give them an opportunity to fix the country and possibly win back the White House in 2024. Woke Corporate America is just making it easier for the GOP to accomplish those goals.
