OPINION | This article contains political comments that reflect the author’s opinion.
Eric Bolling stormed indignantly from a BBC interview after he was accused of being racist and “ignorant” during a debate over Georgia’s new electoral law, according to The BizPac Review.
Bolling stated that politics in the US has become very tribal as there is an extreme right and an extreme left that cannot find a middle ground.
Every topic has become political, including “wearing a mask” and “Georgia State Electoral Law,” the latter “having an impact on major league baseball”.
CEOs get political and vote for one side or the other that “alienates” the other half of the country.
Liberals “have always used the boycott as a tool, a weapon, so to speak, and aimed it at the heads of company bosses who said,” If you listen to us and do things our way, or we’ll boycott your product. “
Conservatives, however, have “moved away from it”.
“I think the time has now come, the pendulum has penetrated so far into this lively culture, the culture of abandonment and the liberal democratic world, that the Conservatives now need to be reinforced and say we are 50 percent of this country,” continued Bolling away. “If we do what you did, these company CEOs who only listen to one side will have to listen harder or lose half of their sales.”
BBC presenter Aisha Mills, a progressive LGBTQ activist and political strategist, after denying the notion that holding companies accountable was a problem, targeted former President Donald Trump who was his “crazy conservative people.” “Urged to boycott Coca-Cola after the Atlanta-based beverage company spoke out against Georgia’s electoral law.
Mills said companies should “be on the side of democracy in the countries where they operate” before going on to say that voting should not be made difficult, regardless of political party or “who you are”.

“That is fundamental to what we are talking about here. So the companies say, “Yeah, we don’t want to get into the partisan crap, but why is voting ultimately a partisan problem?” Added Mills.
“Conservatives have a problem with this, however, because when the game is fair they lose,” she said, “which is why they always try to manipulate the game.”
Mills pointed out that Atlanta, which is 50 percent African American, and that they did on the heels of what Aisha was told was fed by the Biden government, that this voting rule for African Americans in the state of Georgia is kind of bad . ”
Bolling tried to explain that the league moved the game to Denver, which is just over 9.7 percent black.
Bolling stated that when the game was withdrawn from Atlanta, the MLB withheld tens of millions of dollars in aggregate revenue from many black-owned companies.
Mills said, “I think it’s really rich for any Republican, especially a white man, to go around saying that they care about the economic health of black communities and black businesses when this is all a lie.”
“That’s not fair!” Interjected Bolling. “That is insulting! You do not know me. You do not know who I am. “
“I don’t work for the Biden administration, I never did, but what I am is a black person in America,” Mills continued.
“Everything these electoral laws stand for revolves around racial discrimination. How dare you act like you’re somehow a black and business advocate just to make a point and create a wedge? It’s ignorant and just disrespectful. “
“You know what? That’s disgusting,” replied an angry Bolling. “I’m done. Turns me off. That’s repugnant. I’m nowhere near anything you paint me for, and the problem with American politics is just that. Because I know, do you think I’m racist? This is BS. I’m done.”
From the BizPac test:
Bolling got up to leave, but the host induced him to come back for another question.
“I don’t know why I’m staying here,” said Bolling. “I need an apology.”
Mills replied, “I’m not going to apologize for being offended,” which resulted in Bolling leaving and finishing the interview.
