Georgia Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans Issues Resolution Against the
Coca-Cola Company’s Political Correctness
Resolution (Passed at the 124th Georgia Division, Sons of Confederate Veteran’s annual reunion in Macon, Ga. on June 5, 2021)
Whereas, Coca-Cola was invented by John Stith Pemberton of Columbus, Georgia; and
Whereas, John Stith Pemberton obtained a medical degree from the Reform Medical College of Georgia, located in Macon, Georgia; and
Whereas, John Stith Pemberton honorably served as a Lt. Colonel in the Third Cavalry Battalion of the Georgia State Guard; and
Whereas, Lt. Colonel Pemberton was wounded in action defending his hometown of Columbus suffering a wound which troubled him for the rest of his life; and
Whereas, Dr. Pemberton sought a cure to chronic pain after the War and eventually developed Coca-Cola; and
Whereas, Coca-Cola is likely the best known international product invented by a Confederate veteran; and
Whereas, Coca-Cola has become addicted to political correctness and “woke” ideology going so far as to promote anti-white diversity training and supporting “social justice” causes and showering contempt on the sacrifices and valor of its founder; and
Whereas, Coca-Cola has begun intervening in open political questions such as Georgia’s election integrity law recently proposed and passed; and
Whereas, Coca-Cola has established racial quota systems for employment; and
Whereas, serious concerns have been raised about the tremendous volume of plastic Coke bottles contributing to pollution around the world; and
Whereas, serious concerns have been raised about the health problems triggered by the over-consumption of Coca-Cola products;
THEREFORE, be it hereby resolved, that
The Georgia Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans suggests to its members and supporters that they consider other, healthier alternative drinks for their consumption than those produced by the Coca-Cola Company.
Be it further resolved,
That the Georgia Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans suggests to its members and supporters that they avoid the consumption of Coca-Cola products until the Company repudiates its ill-advised policies of politically correct social programs.
Resolution passed by Acclamation.
