Delta Airlines ended its affiliation with the NRA, pissed off millions of people and was among companies that saw their public image decline as a result, and at the end of the day, here’s what they caved to lefties over:
Only 13 Delta passengers have ever bought tickets with an NRA discount. https://t.co/o2NbBc5cuj

It’s almost as if people don’t join the NRA just for the Delta discount!
Delta’s rapid cave to pressure from the Left caused such an explosive decompression that oxygen masks dropped from the ceiling at corporate HQ:
The Georgia legislature removed a jet-fuel tax break from a larger tax package Thursday. Lawmakers were upset that Delta, which is headquartered in Atlanta, dropped the National Rifle Association from a discount-fare program in an effort to appear neutral on gun policy.
After the firestorm, Delta will review all its marketing programs to avoid those that might become political, CEO Ed Bastian announced Friday.
But the airline said only 13 passengers ever bought tickets with an NRA discount. That translates into each discount costing the airline about $3 million in tax breaks.
Round of applause for Delta, everybody! And now it’s time to try and back it all up:

They must be handing out Frequent Liar Miles at Delta’s office today. And all that’s going to do is anger the lefties they caved to, and NRA supporters will still take their business elsewhere when possible. You’re doing customer relations wrong, Delta!
