Senator Ted Cruz called out American companies like Coca Cola and others Tuesday over their role in removing the MLB All-Star Game from Atlanta; decrying the ‘rise of the woke corporation.’
“This last month has seen a significant and dramatic change in our country. Not a change for the good. This past month we have seen the rise of the Woke Corporation. We’ve seen the rise of big business enforcing a woke standard,” said Cruz.
“Big business wants to get in bed with big government. They seek special benefits at the expense of the little guy, the small business. The past month these woke corporations have decided to become the political enforcer for Democrats in Washington,” he added.
Officials in Cobb County, Georgia weighed-in this week on MLB’s decision to relocate the All-Star Game out of the Peach State; saying the move will likely cost local businesses upwards of $100 million.
“In the initial stages of the pandemic, many Cobb hotels saw single digit occupancy numbers,” said the CEO of Cobb Travel and Tourism. “The 8,000-plus contracted hotel room nights that will not actualize as a result of the MLB All-Star Game relocation will have a negative impact on Cobb’s hospitality industry and other local businesses, further delaying recovery.”
“We are proud of the work that many community partners have dedicated to planning the All Star Game activities. And we will continue, as we always do, to show who we are in Cobb through our outreach, customer service and hard work,” she added.
Former President Donald Trump called for a nationwide boycott of MLB and other “woke” companies who are trying to “interfere with free and fair elections.”
Governor Brian Kemp called-out critics and “woke” businesses over the weekend for leading a nationwide effort to boycott the Peach State’s latest Voting Security Bill; saying he will not apologize for “making it easy to vote and hard to cheat.”
