Georgia GOP Candidate Rebukes Conservatives, Socialism is Not a “Threat”

Did State Representative Kevin Cooke miss Stacey Abrams’ run for Georgia Governor?

State Representative Kevin Cooke has now thrown his hat into the ring for the open seat in Georgia’s 14th congressional district, which current Congressman Tom Graves is vacating at the end of the year.

Cooke claims to be a small government conservative. However, one statement he made shows a somewhat tone-deaf view of what is going on politically in America.

In a press release that his campaign distributed on Wednesday, January 22, 2020, Cooke stated “Contrary to popular belief, a giant wave of socialism is not the biggest threat facing our nation, but rather it is the slow drift away from our Constitution allowed for decades by BOTH parties that stands to destroy our country.”

Interestingly enough, Cooke voted for an Internet Sales Tax, HB 276 on January 16, 2020. Obviously, this tax will be used to fund more bloated government by robbing Georgia citizens with purchases they make on the internet. Sounds a bit like socialism.

Don’t forget that Georgia almost elected Stacey Abrams, who keynoted a speech for avowed socialists.

That’s what makes Cooke’s ‘socialism isn’t a threat’ claim a real head-scratcher.

Cooke doesn’t even consider or acknowledge the rise of socialism among younger generations of Americans.

According to a YouGov poll, 70 percent of millenials indicated they would vote for a socialist. For Cooke to be oblivious about this trend, speaks ill of his cultural awareness.

In times like these, prospective elected officials should know what cultural threats are emerging and ultimately respond to them in an effective manner.

For all we know, Cooke will likely end up like countless generic conservative candidates who talk a big game about small government, but end up voting with the rest of the political establishment to grow the size of government. Just like he did with the internet sales tax boondoggle, earlier this month.

Cooke joins the 14th district race in a crowded primary highlighted by America First patriot Marjorie Greene.

Greene has received endorsements from Right Women PAC and the House Freedom for Fund, for her staunch conservative values on issues ranging from the right to life to free-market economics.

Additionally, Greene’s staunch support for the Second Amendment is rather important in times when the Left is working hard to de-legitimize the concept of legal gun ownership.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse

At this Time, Cons

Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer,  posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail. 

In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”

This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.

Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”

She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”

The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”

Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”

Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”

At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.

It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks. 

Can Americans actually grow a spine for once?
