Democrats Call For Boycott Of Walmart & Coke
Here’s another reason for conservatives to shop for their Coke at Walmart:
Democratic officials Wednesday launched a two-pronged attack on states with new laws requiring identification before voting, the highlight being a call to boycott Coke, Walmart and others that back a leading organization pushing for voter ID laws.
“We are organizing. We are not agonizing,” said Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., who is leading a parallel Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s effort to get government identification into the hands of the estimated 2-3 million Democrats who don’t have one. “We have staffed up,” he said.
Officials from another party-backed group, Color of Change, kicked off a boycott of Coke and other financial backers of the American Legislative Exchange Council which supports new voter ID laws. Other supporters include Walmart and Koch Industries. The boycott call started with a tweet (@CocaCola is helping undermine voting rights. Tell them to stop) and a webpage. The group also has tied the Council to the Trayvon Martin shooting case.
Of course, I already shop a lot at Walmart, and much prefer Coke to Pepsi (in part because of stories like this), so it seems like a win-win. Just buy your Coke products at Walmart!
Note, please, that the Democratic Party and their affiliated groups don’t want any sort of verification that the person going to the voting booth is who they say they are. Without that verification, John Doe could vote under his own name in his normal precinct, then go to the next precinct and say he’s Mark Johnson, who is registered in that precinct, and vote, and then go to the next precinct and say he’s Michael Jones and vote, and then in the next precinct vote as Charles Brown… and so on and so on. This state of affairs doesn’t seem to bother the Democrats at all. I wonder why?
