A North Carolina County has sent Coca-Cola packing over their left-wing politics.

All Coke vending machines are set to be removed from offices in Surry County following the soft drink behemoth’s criticism of new Georgia voting laws.

Eddie Harris, a county commissioner, told WXII channel 12: “The left wing in America, they defund, they boycott, they cancel, they tear down statues — all sorts of egregious actions.

“The expectation from them is the opposing political side will cower in the corner and we’re supposed to accept that and it’s supposed to be OK. And it’s not OK.
“We are trying to cancel Coca-Cola.”

The commission voted 3-2 to outlaw Coke vending machines, but it is not yet known if they have been removed.

Harris reportedly wrote a strong-worded letter to Coca-Cola’s CEO James Quincey calling him and his company out for their critique of Georgia’s restrictive new laws.

“Millions of Americans believe that the last presidential election was not held in a fair manner and that more voter fraud will occur in the future if elections are not closely monitored and regulated.”

Coca-Cola issued a statement on April 1 after the new voting measures were passed into law.

“We want to be crystal clear and state unambiguously that we are disappointed in the outcome of the Georgia voting legislation.“Throughout Georgia’s legislative session we provided feedback to members of both legislative chambers and political parties, opposing measures in the bills that would diminish or deter access to voting.”

In response to North Carolina’s decision to boycott the soft drink, Coke said: “As a company headquartered in North Carolina since 1902, Coca-Cola Consolidated is honoured to serve Surry County and counties throughout the state.

“Our 37 teammates who live and work in Surry County are passionate about serving our customers in this area.”

The new voting laws in Georgia were signed by Governor Brian Kemp back in March.
The law comprises of voter identification requirements for any absentee ballots, allows state officials to take total control of local election boards, puts a cap on ballot drop boxes and makes it illegal for voters in line to be approached with food and drink.

The new measures appear to be in allegiance with former president Donald Trump’s incessant allegations that the votes in the 2020 presidential election, in which he lost to Joe Biden, were tampered with.

Trump has urged his supporters to boycott Coca- Cola, as well as JP Morgan, UPS, Delta and ViacomCBS.

Do you think Georgia’s new voting laws are problematic?
