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.

Texas has raised over $55 million from private donations to secure border, build a wall
As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.
“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”
In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.
“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”
“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
