Dear Mr Quincy,
It has come to my attention that your company, Coke, has decided to become political and boycott Facebook? To force them to silence conservatives like me.
Now that is a very brave position... since you will definitely alienate a huge segment of the population and therefore your customer base.
I recently canceled my Netflix account and have encouraged many others to do the same because they have become political. I and many others are pruning the corporate we purchase from, to more line up with our belief in the US Constitution, limited government and the American way.
Because we are silent by no means connotes that we are complicit or even unaware.
It would seems that corporate suicide has become the norm today. How many others will join you and fall on their swords, in a zealous defense of progressivism, censorship, riots and looting I wonder? Very progressive of you and others!
It is sad I'll have to change to another soda brand... because you would rather support a political faction than have customers.
Oh well... A sign of the times.
Maybe I'll cc Pepsi.
