Jindal Says Companies Should Criticize China, Not Republican Party Voting Laws |  State Policy

“Look at the hypocrisy of these companies. So here they are bullying Georgia, they’re threatening Florida, they’re threatening Texas, yet they’re silent on what’s going on in China,” Jindal said. “They condemn Republican legislators, Republican governors, where’s their outrage for these Chinese human rights abuses.” Georgia’s GOP-dominated General Assembly approved, and the state’s Republican governor last month signed into law, a swatch voting rights restrictions. The president likened the new laws to Jim Crow. Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines, both based in Atlanta, were critical. Major League Baseball moved the All-Star game from Atlanta to Denver in protest, causing Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, of Texas, to threaten baseball’s anti-trust exemption.

Jindal, a Republican, was elected governor in 2008 with such great promise that he was frequently mentioned for national office. He ran for president in 2015, did poorly. By the time he left the Governor’s Mansion in 2016, Jindal was unpopular with many Louisiana voters and was blamed for much of the state’s fiscal problems by both Republicans and Democrats. On Thursday night, Jindal appeared on Newsmax, the cable network that sells itself as being to right of Fox News, to blister large corporations that and sports leagues for reacting to efforts by Republican majority legislatures in Texas and Florida to pass laws that would restrict voting for minorities and low-income people.
