I don’t own any Delta Airlines stock, but if I did, I would be on the horn to the CEO and Board of Directors, screaming, “What the hell is the matter with you people?” Then, I would quietly sell all of my Delta stock as I would think many shareholders are doing.

Delta was among the first to hop on the politically correct bandwagon and punish the NRA in the aftermath of the Parkland, Florida school massacre, rescinding its discount to NRA members.

“Hey, look at us! See how cool and progressive and politically correct we are?” seemed to be Delta’s message.

Well, those at the top of the Delta organization may be cool and progressive and politically correct, but they aren’t very smart!

Here’s the math…. Delta has granted NRA discounts to a grand total of 13 NRA members, which cost the airline a $40 million tax break that the state of Georgia, irate over Delta’s politically-motivated punishment of the NRA, rescinded in turn. Thus, Delta lost $3,076,923 per discounted ticket. Brilliant!


It appears that Delta Airlines gave up a $40 million tax break over a mere thirteen passengers, according to a Friday report.

A spokesperson for the Atlanta based company revealed that only thirteen passengers had used their National Rifle Association membership to purchase tickets with Delta Airlines, reports USA Today

The airline company confirmed that number to The Daily Caller News Foundation Friday afternoon.

Georgia Republican lawmakers passed a bill Thursday that removed a tax break on jet fuel that would have heavily benefited Delta in response to the cancellation.

The CEO of the airline company doubled down on the decision to cancel the discount program with NRA members Friday, saying that the company had not been thinking of “economic gain” when it decided to do so.

“Our objective in removing any implied affiliation with the NRA was to remove Delta from this debate. Our decision was not made for economic gain and our values are not for sale. We are in the process of a review to end group discounts for any group of a politically divisive nature,” CEO Ed Bastain said in a statement.
