A North Carolina county has banned Coca-Cola vending machines from its office buildings following the soda company’s opposition to the new Georgia voting law.

During an appearance on "Fox & Friends First," Surry County (N.C.) Commissioner Van Tucker said that Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey’s public admonishment of the voting law, which Tucker described as a way for Georgia to ensure a "fair and free" election, pushed him to remove the company's 12 vending machines from the county premises.

"I didn’t want that [rhetoric] to be contagious across other states," Tucker said. "And you know I felt so strongly about it and our board did—we decided to just step up and say something and do something about it."

The county commissioner asserted that although his county was unlikely to be able to reach out to every major corporation "interfering" with the integrity of elections on a state-to-state basis, the Surry County board felt it was important enough to send a message to Coca-Cola.

"This woke culture that seems to be trying to reform America as we’ve known it is enough," he said.

Tucker added it was time to "stand up" against corporations espousing their political views and hoped others would consider similar action on a local level.

"There is power in numbers and courage can sometimes be courageous," said Tucker.

Coca-Cola provided a response to The Washington Examiner following the removal of the vending machines, claiming that the representatives from the company’s local bottler have reached out to the county commissioners, and "look forward to continuing their productive conversations with those officials."

Tucker said he received an email from a Coca-Cola subsidiary asking if the county would change its mind regarding the vending machine removal, but otherwise has had no contact with the larger corporate entity.

In an April statement on the company website, Coca-Cola CEO and Chairman James Quincey said he was "disappointed" in the outcome of the Georgia voting legislation, and said the company's focus would move towards supporting federal legislation that "protects voting access and addresses voter suppression."

IT’S FEBRUARY 1944, AND BERLIN is attempting to recover from American aerial bombing. But life and industry continues on the city’s outskirts. In farmhouses, bottles clang and a mix of ex-convicts, Chinese laborers, and other workers fill glass bottles of what was likely a cloudy, brownish liquid. This is one of Coca-Cola’s makeshift bottling operations, and they are making **** Germany’s signature beverage. Even during war, Germans want their Fanta.
The soft drink Fanta was invented by Coca-Cola, an American company, inside of **** Germany during World War II. Developed at the height of the Third Reich, the new soda ensured the brand’s continued popularity. Fanta became a point of nationalistic pride and was consumed by the German public, from the Fraus cooking at home to the highest officials of the **** party.

In 1933, right when Hitler and the **** Party were assuming power, German-born Max Keith (pronounced “Kite”) took over the company’s German subsidiary, Coca-Cola GmbH. Keith was an imposing figure: tall, intimidating, possessing a “little whisk-broom mustache” (not unlike Hitler’s), charming but quick-tempered, and utterly devoted to Coca-Cola. “[Keith] valued his allegiance to the drink and to the company more than his allegiance to his own country,” says Pendergrast. For that reason, he saw no quarrel with boosting sales by tying Coca-Cola to every aspect of German life and, increasingly, **** rule.

The company sponsored the 1936 Berlin Olympics, which Woodruff attended, and made banners featuring the Coca-Cola logo alongside the swastika. Keith used a 10th anniversary party for Coca-Cola GmbH to order a mass Sieg-Heil (**** salute) in honor of the dictator’s 50th birthday. He declared that this was “to commemorate our deepest admiration for our Fuhrer.”

Did they at least give them Coca-Cola to sip when FDR turned them away from sanctuary? Too bad they weren't Hispanic illegals...they would have been welcomed by dem's open arms. Dems have had a long love affair with N a z i s.

Captain Schröder directed St. Louis and the remaining 907 refugees towards the United States.[11] He circled off the coast of Florida, hoping for permission from authorities to enter the United States. Cordell Hull advised Franklin Roosevelt, president of the US, not to accept the Jews. Captain Schröder considered running aground along the coast to allow the refugees to escape but, acting on Cordell Hull's instructions, United States Coast Guard vessels shadowed the ship and prevented this.
