Trump Sends Out List of Companies to "Cancel"

One-term ex-president Donald Trump is calling for a boycott on any company that protests the new voter suppression bill in Georgia. Last month, Republican Governor Brian Kemp signed into law a bill, that among other things, limits the use of ballot drop boxes, imposes new voter ID requirements for absentee voting, and prohibits handing out food and water to voters waiting in line. Many Georgia-based companies, including Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines, voiced their opposition to the law suspecting it to be an undemocratic power grab by the right. Major League Baseball joined in on the opposition, pulling out this year’s All-Star game from Atlanta.

Now the right-wing is calling these decisions by corporations “cancel culture” and the former president wants to combat them by launching boycotts of his own. Trump’s office put out a statement over the weekend calling for his supporters not to give money to the companies in question. It read in part, “now they are going big time with WOKE CANCEL CULTURE and our sacred elections. It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back—we have more people than they do—by far!” Conservatives have been bemoaning cancel culture for years and it’s become their top issue ever since Joe Biden took office. Yet now, the most influential Republican politician is calling for boycotts on companies that he disagrees with, which is also “cancel culture.” These people will flip their positions on a dime, because it’s about satisfying short-term interests and not adhering to any sort of principle.
