Surry County Commissioner Van Tucker: “This woke culture that seems to be trying to reform America as we’ve known it is enough.”
Surry County in North Carolina no longer has Coca-Cola vending machines due to its embrace of “woke culture,” especially the opposition to Georgia’s voting law.
Coca-Cola, which is based in Georgia, has taken a beating in 2021. It first came under fire for its racial quotas on outside counseling. Then it forced employees to become “less white” with online courses.
Third, Coca-Cola’s CEO James Quincey bashed Georgia’s voting law, calling it “a step backwards.” However, Coca-Cola never left Georgia, and the state has not changed anything about the law.
People have not forgotten. From Fox News:
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.”
Tucker hopes others follow his example because it is the only way to stop corporations from imposing their views on us.
“There is power in numbers and courage can sometimes be courageous,” stressed Tucker.DONATE
