No other individual has harmed the country and its institutions a‑la the US Senate, The US Supreme Court, civility and honesty, than Mitch McConnell, the US Senator from Kentucky.
The truth is that Mitch McConnell was never close to being better than Trent Lott or any other Republican that ever held the office of Senate Majority/Minority leader.
Mitch McConnell is, in fact, an old racist relic of the old order, nothing more, nothing less.
And so here we are with Mitch McConnell, the old curmudgeon warning corporate leaders to quote, ‘Stay out of politics or there will be consequences.
His threats were aimed at corporate leaders who spoke out in opposition to the state of Georgia Republican roll-out of Jim Crow 2.0 in new legislations after they lost the state to Joe Biden and lost the two US Senate seats to the Democrats.
Cheating is something Mitch McConnell has no problem with; you know, nine months before the 2016 Presidential elections was too close for President Obama to appoint Merrick Garland to the US Supreme Court, but 30-days out from the 2020 elections was just fine to ram Amy Coney Barret through.….
The idea that this despicably reprehensible individual would dare to threaten corporate leaders as if he is a King,or that the power he wields comes from himself and not them is galling.
But Mitch McConnell loves to issue threats… he issues them to the Democratic party as a matter of course.
“You try to reform the Senate filibuster, and when we return to power, we will ram through our racist agenda, and you will have no say in the matter.
Mitch McConnell’s galling arrogance is a classic white male attitude,they believe the country is theirs and theirs to rule the way they see fit.
Take it or leave it.
Who does this guy think he is? Here is a guy that spent all his life on the public’s payroll that he now thinks he is some king or something, to tell people what they are allowed to do and not do.
Coca-Cola Co-Chief Executive James Quincey called the law “unacceptable” and a “step backward.”
Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian said: “The entire rationale for this bill was based on a lie: that there was widespread voter fraud in Georgia in the 2020 election.”
Major League Baseball pulled the 2021 All-Star Game out of the state over the law strengthening identification requirements for absentee ballots and making it a crime to offer food or water to voters waiting in line.
“Corporations will invite serious consequences if they become a vehicle for far-left mobs to hijack our country from outside the constitutional order,” McConnell told a news conference in his home state of Kentucky.
Someone should tell old turtle face that decent, intelligent people, including company executives, will not sit idly by while old racist neanderthals like him and his kind take us back to the George Wallace Bull O’Connor era.
These old crustaceans, including Donald Trump, their dear leader, would like nothing better than to send Black people back to the cotton fields.
It will not happen; he can bet on it.
