On Wednesday, Delta Air Lines publicly condemned Georgia’s new voting laws -- which mandate that voters show a photo I.D. at the polls before being allowed to vote, and take aim at electioneering by making it illegal to give away free stuff – including food and drinks – to voters waiting in line, as MRCTV has previously reported.
On Thursday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) denounced the airline in a video posted to Twitter after the airline's CEO - whose company enjoys tens of millions in state-based tax breaks in Georgia every year - publicly denounced the new laws as "wrong" and "unacceptable."
But as Rubio pointed out, that's not the only thing that makes Delta a bit hypocritical on this one.
“So Delta Air Lines are business partners with the Chinese Communist Party,” Rubio said. “The same Chinese Communist party that is committing genocide against Uyghur Muslims inside of China.”
Rubio asserted that Delta and other big companies like Coca-Cola would never denounce the genocide being perpetuated by the CCP “because they are woke corporate hypocrites.”
“They make billions of dollars in a country that doesn’t even have elections,” Rubio pointed out. “They make billions of dollars working with a country that has no respect for anyone or anything, and they don’t say a word about it. But in America, they’re prepared to boycott a state and condemn them publicly to show and prove how woke they are. They’re hypocrites. Complete and total hypocrites.”
