A national Conservative group launched a campaign Tuesday that is railing against the CEOs of American Airlines, Coke and Nike for “appealing to woke politicians” instead of “serving their customers.” The group Consumers Research is behind the over $1 million ad campaign.

The ads call out American Airlines CEO Doug Parker, Coca Cola CEO James Quincey and Nike CEO John Donahoe for meddling in politics to their benefit. Executive Director Will Hild spoke to CNBC about the motivations behind the campaign against. “Increasingly, they’ve taken position on legislation that has nothing to do with their business and this is at the same time that the quality of their products and services is going down.”

In the videos, American Airlines is accused of shrinking legroom and losing the most bags. Coca-Cola gets called out for their alleged forced labor, downward sales and targeting teens despite an obesity epidemic. Similarly, Nike is blasted for forced labor of Uyghurs at its warehouses.

“Our focus is always on the consumer,” Hild said in the interview. “And that’s what it should be for these companies as well, but increasingly we’re seeing them work to curry favor with woke politicians, rather than focusing on serving their consumers.”

These ads are running on Fox Business, CNBC, and local stations in the headquarter cities of these companies.

Uvalde, TX Mayor Calls Beto O’Rourke a ‘Sick Son of a B****’ After he Heckled Gov. Abbott’s Presser

The vile act of politicizing horrific tragedies such as the Uvalde, Texas elementary school massacre, has been in full force. Democrat Beto O’Rourke “was escorted out of Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday after he showed up and heckled the governor in the middle of an update on the elementary school massacre in Uvalde” reports The Blaze.

Beto is a former congressman from El Paso, Texas as well as a Democratic presidential nominee briefly for the 2020  elections. During his time, he campaigned hard on his support for a mandatory gun buyback scheme.

The Blaze reported on Beto’s behavior at Abbott’s press conference:

As Abbott was finishing his remarks to reporters, O’Rourke, the Democratic candidate for governor, stood up and began speaking about the need for gun control legislation.

“Excuse me,” Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said as O’Rourke ignored him and went on about how “the time has come to put a stop” to gun violence. O’Rourke did not have a microphone, and most of his comments were inaudible.

“Sit down!” shouted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the Democrat kept speaking.

“You’re out of line and an embarrassment!” Patrick told O’Rourke, while others began raising their voices.

“You are doing nothing!” O’Rourke yelled at Abbott as police officers began to march him out of the room.

“You need to get his a** out of here, this isn’t the place to talk this over,” said Uvalde Mayor Don Mclaughlin, calling O’Rourke a “sick son of a b****.”
