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.

Controversial Remarks by Progressive Lawmaker Sparks Intra-Party Clash over Hamas’ Alleged Sexual Violence
In a recent television appearance, Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal stirred controversy and faced intense criticism from fellow Democrats for her remarks seemingly downplaying reported sexual violence by Hamas terrorists against Israeli women.
The contentious comments come amid disturbing accounts of rape and brutal assaults following Hamas’ surprise attack on Israel on October 7, with prominent Democrats expressing outrage and demanding unequivocal condemnation.
According to reports from Fox News, Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz from Florida called for a forceful denouncement of sexual violence and condemning any attempt to create moral equivalence between Hamas and the Israeli Defense Force (IDF). The accusations of rape and sexual assault have sparked concern about the well-being of Israelis still held hostage by Hamas.
During her appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Jayapal faced scrutiny for not outright condemning Hamas for the alleged acts, instead emphasizing the broader impact of war on women.
Furthermore, the comments drew swift criticism, with Representative Ritchie Torres of New York insisting on the need for unequivocal condemnation of sexual violence against Israeli women.
Despite Jayapal’s history of advocating against sexual violence, her recent remarks have led to a significant intra-party clash, with Democrats challenging the notion of finding a balance or moral equivalence in addressing such sensitive matters.
The controversy underscores the complexities that arise when lawmakers navigate geopolitical conflicts while upholding principles of justice and human rights. As tensions escalate within the party, the incident highlights the broader challenges of maintaining a unified front on contentious global issues.
