After going ‘woke,’ NC county bans Coca-Cola vending machines from its offices

Mega-brands and their underlying mega-corporations have made themselves into political entities, and people are waking up to this phenomenon of “woke” -ness.

A county government in North Carolina, for example, has canned all the Coca-Cola vending machines in its office buildings after the Atlanta-based global company criticized Georgia’s new voting laws, intended to combat election fraud such as that widely suspected of occurring in the 2020 vote.

Why does a soft-drink company criticize efforts to fight voter fraud, which invariably benefits Democrats?

“The left wing in America, they defund, they boycott, they cancel, they tear down statues — all sorts of egregious actions,” Eddie Harris, a commissioner for Surry County, told WXII in an interview. “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.”

The Surry County commissioners, all Republicans, voted 3-2 last month to remove the drink machines, but WXII said the machines have not yet been taken out. Surry County has about 73,000 residents and is located in the northern part of the state.

Harris also sent a letter to Coca-Cola’s management stating that the last presidential election wasn’t fair, WCNC reported.

“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,” Harris reportedly told the CEO of the mega-brand.

A bottling company called Coca-Cola Consolidated, separate from Coca-Cola, told WXII it is trying to arrange a meeting with the commissioners.
