April 6, 2021 (NewsBusters) – Former President Donald Trump’s eldest son had a few choice words for companies like Delta Air Lines and Apple caving in to the triggered screeching of the far left.
Donald Trump Jr. began a new Rumble video with the catchphrase “Get woke, go broke” before ripping Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian for complaining about Georgia’s new voting law. Trump pointed out that Delta had previously praised the law before the CEO came out saying “the final bill” was “unacceptable.” The complaints by Bastian led Georgia state House Republicans to vote to strip Delta of a multimillion-dollar tax break in response, according to Fox Business. Liberal companies Apple and Coca-Cola also joined Delta in chastising the legislation. Trump shredded the companies for caving in to the far left: “There seems to be a big cottage industry of going really woke.”
In response to GA House Republicans voting to revoke Delta’s tax break, Trump quipped: “I’m glad [the woke complaints seem] to be biting Delta in the ass.”
The so-called 'Equality Act' contains deadly poison for Christian democracy in the United States. And, its harmless-sounding name tries to hide this insidious reality.
But, unfortunately, Pelosi and company have JUST PASSED this morally repugnant bill in the US House of Representatives.
Pro-life and pro-family organizations, as well as Christian churches and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, and freedom-loving groups everywhere, are now sounding the alarm.
Wake up, America, this is RED ALERT time!
This petition, therefore, calls on every US Senator to vigorously oppose and reject this bill.
Yes, it's THAT important.
The bill has nothing to do with "equality," or with extending the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which is how it is being touted by the leftists in the mainstream media.
It is, rather, one of the MOST EXTREME anti-life, pro-LGBT indoctrination bills ever proposed.
It has been described as a short-list of the worst possible elements of the Radical Left's agenda in Congress...and, REMEMBER, it has just passed the House!
We need to tell all US Senators, in no uncertain terms, that WE WILL NOT ACCEPT this outrageous attack on our freedoms and on life, itself!
SIGN AND SHARE THIS URGENT PETITION, TODAY!
And, after you have signed this petition, please CLICK HERE to DIRECTLY CONTACT YOUR U.S. SENATORS, and tell them to oppose this assault on our freedoms of thought, speech, conscience and religion.
FOR MORE INFORMATION:
Below are some of the devastating critiques of 'Equality Act,' leveled by some of the best conservative, Christian minds in the country.
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council (FRC), has written that the 'Equality Act' will include, "the largest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion this country has ever seen.”
"Under this big new umbrella of 'discrimination,'" continued Perkins, "any American who doesn’t want to fund, offer, perform, or participate in abortion on demand will have no real choice. They can conform — or they can be punished."
"Every wall that’s been built between abortion and the government would come crashing down, including the Hyde Amendment, the pro-conscience Weldon Amendment, and several international barriers that keep our country from exporting abortion."
ON CHRISTIANITY, RELIGIOUS FREEDOM and LGBT INDOCTRINATION:
Lloyd Marcus, of the American Thinker publication, has written about the 'Equality Act' in the following terms:
"LGBTQ enforcer and homosexual Democrat congressman David Cicilline is sponsor of the Equality Act. Cicilline's evil bill is the most aggressive assault on our constitutional religious liberties in U.S. history...If the Equality Act becomes the law of the land, every outrageous, tyrannical demand [of LGBTQ activists/enforcers] will become reality."
And, Liberty Counsel Action, a law and policy education, training and advocacy organization which, among other things, advances religious freedom, the sanctity of human life, and the family has extensively criticized the 'Equality Act'.
On their webpage, dedicated to analyzing the 'Equality Act', which you can access below, Liberty Counsel Action state: "The 'Equality' Act' elevates 'sexual orientation and gender identity' to the same protected category as race. It will violate the religious freedom of Americans in numerous ways."
The go on to list the areas of life which this will affect: "It will impact all employers, including religious and non-profit organizations; contractors; houses of worship; public, private, and religious schools; curriculum; bathrooms; sports; daycare providers; shelters; hospitals; places of gatherings; entertainment providers; counselors; foster care and adoption; biological parents; landlords; anywhere providing a “good, service, or program,” including those advertised online; transportation drivers; and all local, state, and federal entities and many other areas."
And, as they note: "[T]here is NO RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION to this bill!"
Taking into account all of these potential threats to Christian democracy, Life and religious freedom, it is easy to see how the so-called 'Equality Act' has been called a "poison pill."
It is imperative that the US Senate vigorously reject this bill, AND EXPOSE IT FOR WHAT IT REALLY IS.
Please SIGN this urgent petition, TODAY!

LifeSiteNews opinion and analysis of the so-called 'Equality Act':
Trump mocked Delta and Apple specifically for their faux outrage and complaints: “Why? Because Georgia wanted to have some stuff as it relates to I.D.s to make sure we know who’s actually voting? Oh! It’s terrible! Another one: Apple’s [CEO] Tim Cook came out strongly blasting the law — blasting this.” Trump continued: “Yet strangely enough, Apple’s CEO has also been eerily silent on the genocide that is being committed in China against the Uyghur population.”
Watch the video below:
Trump continued hammering Apple’s hypocrisy: “[Cook]’s been really silent about and during the Hong Kong uprisings. Strangely enough, when China — an actual dictatorial and oppressive regime — does something to suppress the will of the people, Apple’s Tim Cook is silent!”
Fox Business reported that “Apple has a history of doing business in China and has seen explosive growth in business in the nation.” Delta also touted its company as the “most Chinese-friendly U.S. airline” on its website.
Trump would not let up. He proceeded to rebuke Apple for seeming to want everyone to vote in U.S. elections without secure safeguards in place:
“But when we want to make sure that we have free and fair elections, that’s when [Cook]’s got a problem with it. He wants to make sure that anyone can vote. It doesn’t matter if they’re legal. [It] doesn’t matter if they live in the state. Let’s just make sure. Let’s not have any checks. That’s what it seems that these people are saying.”
Trump then aimed back at Delta in his conclusion: “Of course, their CEO is going to be really woke and push some sort of nonsense policies, and I’m glad to see it biting them in the butt.”
Conservatives are under attack. Contact Delta Airlines at 1 (800) 221-1212 and Apple at (408) 996-1010 and demand these companies stop virtue signaling and catering to leftist political narratives and get back to the business of serving customers, not Democratic Party political agendas.
