Tucker Carlson had a lot to say on Saturday night on Fox News regarding corporations getting on the 'woke' side of politics, exposing their hypocrisy and their "soft" bigotry.

Much of what Tucker had to say was focused on the Coca Cola corporation, based in Atlanta, which has taken a clear political stance against Georgia's new voting laws.

Coca Cola's current CEO, James Quincey is shown in the video talking about "access to voting" and "voter convenience", saying in his crisp British accent that the voting reform laws are "frankly just a step backwards".

Tucker's rebuttal was extremely strong. In turn, he pointed out that he's "not sure how long the CEO of Coca Cola has been in this country", mentioning that "just 'cause you run a soft drink company, you don't get to run our democracy."

Tucker then pointedly asked, "How many black people have died in the last hundred years from diabetes caused by Coca Cola products?", further pointing out that "it's far more than the Minneapolis police department has killed, ever."

Thirdly, Tucker stated the obvious, that "China is one of Coca Cola's biggest markets." Curt Furguson, the person in the company in charge of its relations with China, has publicly praised China for their handling of the pandemic, despite evidence that China actually did a horrible job. "Unbelievable," commented Tucker.

Tucker moved on to Vermont Gov. Phil Scott (R), who recently implemented a racially-based policy for rolling out the vaccine. "Vermont wants to check your racial purity before giving you life-saving medicine. That doesn't seem like a good idea, or legal, or ethical, or something that would ever happen in America. Is Coca Cola ok with that? Apparently, they are."

Finally, Tucker attacked Delta airlines, pointing out their obvious lack of integrity, considering that they reversed their position on the voting laws within a mere three days, going from supporting it to condemning it.

The latter statement put forth by Delta shows a Georgia drivers license and points out that there's more than one number on there, implying that this law disproportionately affects people of color more because according to them, people of color are less capable of being able to find the right number. This is what is called the "soft bigotry of low expectations."

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) also had some very poignant things to say on the same subject:

"I'm sensing a cultural shift, and work corporations are on the losing side of it," writes Crenshaw. He goes on in the next post to say:

"Keep fighting back. Let @mlb , @americanair , @cocacola know that we’ve had enough of the woke political pandering."

"Hey Joe Biden, you gonna boycott the Beijing Olympics because of mass genocide? Or are you just into hurting Atlanta small businesses that were planning on the all-star game? Americans are sick of this woke BS. @MLB is a disgrace."
