You don’t appease Prog filth. You look there ugly little asses right in their eyes as you push a stake right through their hearts.

Coke not woke?

read the tea leaves: Within a span of three weeks, the company came under public fire from prominent Republicans, swiftly de-escalated its rhetoric on the Georgia law, saw its general counsel hastily resign, and saw his replacement declare a “pause” on his most heavily criticized efforts. It certainly looks as if Coca-Cola has reached a corporate decision to pull back from a partisan and ideological posture that actively antagonized half the country, including the state government of where Coca-Cola is headquartered.

Given that any consumer staple business typically seeks the largest customer base possible (especially a company as large as Coca-Cola), its mind boggling that any company would ever get involved in politics when its basically a 50-50 nation. There is literally nothing to gain by wieghing in on a question when nobody is requiring you to give an opinion. Its an unforced error to get involved.

The only thing more surprising than Coke's original incredibly stupid decision to get involved in politics---was that it took THREE WEEKS for the adults in the room to figure out how stupid it was and to reverse course. The level of disconnect with common sense and reality among these high level executives is absolutely shocking.

CEO of Coke is a Brit. Little of the leadership is American. And blue states tend to drink blue (Pepsi) and red states tend to drink the red can.

It's funny how quick virtues go out the window once profits start to dip.

Typical liberals.

They didn't have a choice, their employees would have walked. Millenials are 1/3 of the work force. They will be 2/3 of the work force by 2030. Add a labor shortage and Coke's hand was forced.

First of all +2 for the first paragraph.

Second - it is not that uncommon for C-Suite and Board rooms to show a disconnect and make ill-advised decisions like this. The reason is very simple - Greed - AKA - return to Stock Holder. If these people think that a decision increases either and/or both, they do not hesitate to make that move.

Time is money and if you take too much time to hash out whether a decision is good or not, you have wasted an opportunity to make mo' money.

Coke (like many other's) are falling victim to "The Squeaky Wheel Get's the Grease". They are failing to understand that the silent majority is much larger than the loud minority. By the time the lightbulb goes off, it is too late.

Coke will recover from the eventually, but what a bone-headed decision.
