Evil Apple Gives To GOPers

Apple CEO Tim Cook Donated To Elect Republicans To Congress - BuzzFeed News:

Apple CEO Tim Cook and eight of the company’s top executives donated a combined $45,900 in June to a PAC that helps elect Republicans to Congress, according to records filed with the Federal Election Commission.

While contributions to both Republican and Democratic leaders are commonplace among corporate figures, it illustrates a particular paradox for Apple executives, whose company boasts LGBT-friendly ideas while top employees also help finance a business-friendly political party that is adversarial to LGBT rights...
And yet the hipster community continues to feature the "cool Apple" product mantra and continues to stuff money in Apple's pockets for their latest unneeded overpriced product because... it's cool like voting for the black guy for president. (And yeah, I heard that more than once back in 08.)
