Delta dumping its affiliation with the NRA over pressure from the Left has been backfiring badly on the company. As it turns out, the USA Today reported that only 13 Delta passengers had taken advantage of the NRA discount, which “translates into each discount costing the airline about $3 million in tax breaks” the company lost in Georgia.
With the backlash comes the inevitable backpedal attempt:

Now Delta’s not making anybody happy on either side of the issue:
Then reinstate your relationship with the NRA, America’s oldest civil rights organization who provides more gun safety classes, responsible policies, and consist of millions of law-abiding Americans. Then you can say that you support the 2nd Amendment.

Too late. Just cancelled a $4,500 trip because of their virtue signalling.
