Georgia Lt Governor Issues Extortion Threat To Delta For Not Supporting The NRA

Georgia Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle (R) on Monday threatened Delta after the airline cut ties with the National Rifle Association. Cagle tweeted that he will block any tax legislation that benefits Delta Airlines. The airline announced that it will no longer offer discounted rates to NRA members traveling to its annual convention.

“I will kill any tax legislation that benefits @Delta unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with @NRA. Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back,” Cagle tweeted.

That’s a pretty dumb move for a number of reasons. Delta employs about 33,000 employees in Georgia, making the airline the state’s number one private employer. It’s also unconstitutional.

His tweet set the Internet ablaze.

Cagle, who is running for governor this year, issued a statement accusing companies of “viewpoint discrimination against conservatives and law-abiding gun owners” even though revoking discounts is hardly discrimination.

Teenagers are kicking the NRA’s ass and Cagle can’t handle it. They’re afraid of children because they know their time is up. Americans aren’t going to sit idly by anymore while children are massacred.
