It’s always nice when a progressive “woke” company that goes all “political” gets walloped with a face-full of reality.
And that’s exactly what just happened to the “communist wokesters” over at Delta Airlines.
One of Delta’s hubs is in Atlanta – so just because of this, Delta somehow thinks it’s their right and duty to talk about politics when all they are is an airline.
The hubbub is over a new GA voter integrity law that was just passed by the GOP in Georgia.
Among other things, the law requires voter ID – even if you’re voting by mail.
Well, Delta took great issue with that – and called it “voter suppression,” even though you can’t get on one of Delta’s flights without showing your ID several times.
Is that “flying suppression” or just common sense?
Well, looks like Delta got a bit too big for their communist britches, because the GA GOP didn’t take too kindly to what the wok airlines said, and they pushed back.
“This is amazing. Georgia Republicans voted last night to cancel a Delta tax break, to punish Delta for criticizing their voter suppression bill. A GOP leader admitted to this motive, saying: “You don’t feed a dog that bites your hand.”

Georgia Republicans on Wednesday took a last-minute swipe at Delta Air Lines after the company’s chief executive criticized a massive measure overhauling voting rules in a state that narrowly voted for President Biden in 2020.
In the waning hours of the legislative session, the Georgia state House passed a bill to repeal a tax break on jet fuel, aimed squarely at one of the state’s largest companies and the largest operator of flights into and out of Hartsfield-Jackson Airport.
The measure came after Delta CEO Ed Bastian issued a memo criticizing the package of election reforms, which opponents have called a modern version of Jim Crow laws that blocked Black Americans from voting.
“Last week, the Georgia legislature passed a sweeping voting reform act that could make it harder for many Georgians, particularly those in our Black and Brown communities, to exercise their right to vote,” Bastian wrote. “After having time to now fully understand all that is in the bill, coupled with discussions with leaders and employees in the Black community, it’s evident that the bill includes provisions that will make it harder for many underrepresented voters, particularly Black voters, to exercise their constitutional right to elect their representatives. That is wrong.”
House Speaker David Ralston (R) acknowledged early Thursday that the move was meant as retaliation.
“They like our public policy when we’re doing things that benefit them, and they reap the rewards of those benefits and then turn around and do this,” Ralston told reporters, according to Georgia Public Broadcasting. “As all of you know, I can’t resist a country boy line or two, you don’t feed a dog that bites your hand. You’ve got to keep that in mind.”
The bill didn’t pass the Senate, so Delta gets to keep their tax breaks – for now.
But there’s so much good news here – the GOP is finally fighting back and not caving to these big companies, which they would gave done in the past.
These ballsy GOPers faced down all the fake news and screeching about their bill from media, Dems, Biden, and Delta, and they not only didn’t flinch, they actually doubled down.
And THAT my friends, is how we start winning.
