Another battle in the culture wars is brewing in North Carolina.
A county in the state has banned Coca-Cola vending machines over the company’s recent embrace of left wing politics.
Hey, why not? Conservatives have to fight fire with fire, right?
FOX News reports:
Coca-Cola vending machines banned in North Carolina county over company’s opposition to Georgia voting law
A North Carolina county has banned Coca-Cola vending machines from its office buildings following the soda company’s opposition to the new Georgia voting law.
During an appearance on “Fox & Friends First,” Surry County (N.C.) Commissioner Van Tucker said that Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey’s public admonishment of the voting law, which Tucker described as a way for Georgia to ensure a “fair and free” election, pushed him to remove the company’s 12 vending machines from the county premises.
“I didn’t want that [rhetoric] to be contagious across other states,” Tucker said. “And you know I felt so strongly about it and our board did—we decided to just step up and say something and do something about it.”
The county commissioner asserted that although his county was unlikely to be able to reach out to every major corporation “interfering” with the integrity of elections on a state-to-state basis, the Surry County board felt it was important enough to send a message to Coca-Cola.
“This woke culture that seems to be trying to reform America as we’ve known it is enough,” he said.
Conservatives have to start pushing back.
