(Natural News) Some readers may be old enough to remember when corporate CEOs were mostly Republicans and backers of small government, free markets, free minds, individual liberty and America-first marketing.
Well, those days are over.
Today’s CEOs are “woke” adherents to Marxist Democratic Party groupthink, with its sycophantic bands of ‘social justice warriors’ who are monumental hypocrites.
In recent days, several corporations based in Atlanta have blasted Georgia’s new voter ID law, claiming — wrongly — that it purposely targets black Americans and other minorities for ‘voter suppression.’ Never mind that expressing a belief that blacks and minorities are too stupid or otherwise incapable of getting a valid ID so they can vote is in and of itself massively racist, but that’s for another day. (Related: Merriam-Webster dictionary now says that not being racist is still “racist”.)
The problem with these corporations and their woke CEOs is that their claims about Georgia’s new law are completely false. Not only does it actually expand the number of days residents can vote early, it adds Sunday voting and maintains use of drop boxes — all while ensuring that balloting is fair, secure and free of any fraud, which are things you would think most normal people agree with.
Well, Democrats aren’t normal people and neither are the CEOs who are now siding with them. But it’s worse that that, as Breitbart News reports: Many of these same corporations require an ID to use their services or buy their products:
Two hundred corporations issued a joint statement opposing election integrity legislation similar to Georgia’s recently passed voter ID law, while many require identification to use their services.
The signed letter includes PayPal, Major League Baseball (MLB), United Airlines, Microsoft, Uber, and Cisco, who called on “elected leaders in every state capitol and in Congress to work across the aisle and ensure that every eligible American has the freedom to easily cast their ballot and participate fully in our democracy.”
“There are hundreds of bills threatening to make voting more difficult in dozens of states nationwide,” the statement added, referencing Georgia’s passed integrity law that limits the number and location of drop boxes, reforms voter ID requirements, and modernizes the state’s voter rolls.
But a large plurality of these companies require strict ID enforcement or you’re out of luck if you want to use their services.
Every airline, for instance, requires a valid government-issued identification before passengers are allowed to board planes, period. No exceptions.
You have to prove who you are in order to get a PayPal account and for that matter, you have to have a valid ID to open a bank account so you can open a PayPal account.
Uber checks the ID of anyone who wants to participate in their ride-sharing service; Major League Baseball asks to see IDs at all will call ticket windows.
Venues all over the country that are owned by large corporations require IDs as well. Try being under 21 or even looking like you’re under 21 and ordering an alcoholic drink at any major corporate restaurant chain; you’re gonna be required to show an ID proving you’re old enough to buy.
Some lawmakers have lashed out at the wokeist corporatists, including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida), who blasted MLB Commissioner Robert Manfred after he moved this year’s All-Star Game out of Atlanta, which is about 51 percent black, to mostly white Denver, which is about 9 percent black and sits in a state with slightly more restrictive voting laws.

“I am under no illusion you intend to resign as a member from Augusta National Golf Club. To do so would require a personal sacrifice, as opposed to the woke corporate virtue signaling of moving the All Star Game from Atlanta,” Rubio said in a letter, mocking Manfred for continuing his membership in the elite club.
