Cancel culture has now attacked America’s pastime, and it has become clear that corporations fear the Woke Supremacy. They haven’t yet learned that there is a whole country out that with far superior numbers than the Supremacy and when you start to anger them by siding with her Wokers, it’s going to harm your bottom line.
On Friday, former President Donald Trump released a statement when news broke that the MLB is moving its All-Star Game out of Atlanta following Governor Brian Kemp’s signing of Georgia’s new election reform bill. Trump called the MLB on the carpet as well as other “woke corporations” for “interfering with Free and Fair Elections.”
“Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter ID, which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections,” Trump said. “Boycott baseball and all the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!”
Major League Baseball made the decision to move its annual All-Star Game out of Atlanta after President Joe Biden told ESPN on Wednesday that he would “strongly support” the due to his objections with the new election security bill.
“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them doing that. People look to them. They’re leaders,” Biden said. “Look what’s happened with the NBA, as well. Look what’s happened across the board. The very people who are victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports, and it’s just not right.”
Folks, this is the test of what the future will bring. Do we allow Democrats to continue to cheat during elections or do we stand up to them when they call us racist for wanting secure, free, and fair elections for everyone?
There was nothing racist in the bill. In fact, the new Georgia election security law expands voting hours and times, including on weekends. The only thing that the Democrats are upset about is the voter ID portion of the new law. Democrats for years now have resisted voter ID, giving the excuse that they believe it’s racist. That is another blatant lie. Only people with double-digit IQs could think that voter ID is a racist concept. Democrats want you to believe that black Americans are too stupid to know how to get a photo ID or how to vote online.
Joe Biden recently received Four Pinocchios from the Washington post for a blatant lie he told about the new Georgia law. Biden said that the new law in Georgia is “sick” and that the state is bringing back Jim Crow. The president of the United States said that the new law harms working people because they close the polls at 5 pm just when most folks are getting done work. The WaPo nailed him on that lie because there is nothing at all in the bill that says that. The law says that Election Day voting hours go from 7 am to 7 pm. Biden somehow twisted the expansion of voting times to a restriction.
In fact, the law expands voting hours and days for early voting. Think about how involved Biden’s lie was. He called it Jim Crow. He even said people can’t bring someone a bottle of water while waiting in line. That too is a bald-faced lie. The provision in the election bill allows voters to bring food or beverage in line, and they can even order food if they want. The provision Biden was lying about applies to people handing out campaign advertisements, or gifts, which is already found in similar laws in Minnesota, Montana, and New York, which has a likewise policy that applies to “meat, drink, tobacco, refreshment, or provision.” In other words, the law says that campaign workers cannot bring someone something when standing in line to vote. Anyone else can do whatever they want. In Biden’s home state of Delaware, election laws prohibit gifts and rewards during presidential primary elections. Biden lied because he wanted the Woke to believe that Georgia wanted to be mean to voters by not allowing someone to bring them water when they are standing in line to vote in the hot sun. It was a lie.
The All-Star Game was scheduled to be held at Truist Park, the home field of the Atlanta Braves on July 13. Atlanta has hosted the All-Star game only twice, once in 1972 and again in 2000. The game was expected to generate considerable revenue for the state’s economy. The MLB claims it moved the location of the game due to voting “restrictions” contained in SB 202. They were wrong about the bill, and I hope it hurts them in the pocketbook because there is no other way to stop Cancel Culture among corporations than to stand up to them and tell them that wed will no longer support corporations that cower to the Woke Supremacy.
“I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB draft,” MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. “Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box.” Even though there are no restrictions to voting in the new bill.

Kemp criticized the MLB for its decision to cower to the Woke Supremacy, citing “cancel culture.” He told The Hill, “Today, Major League Baseball caved to fear, political opportunism, and liberal lies,” said Kemp. “Georgians — and all Americans — should fully understand what the MLB’s knee-jerk decision means: cancel culture and woke political activists are coming for every aspect of your life, sports included. If the left doesn’t agree with you, facts and truth do not matter.”
Are The Democrats and Biden Against Israel?
Republican Speaker of the Georgia House David Ralston said Georgia will not “be bullied by socialists and their sympathizers.” He added, “This decision is not only economically harmful, it also robs Georgians of a special celebration of our national pastime free of politics. But Georgia will not be bullied by socialists and their sympathizers,” Ralston said. “We will continue to stand for accessible, secure elections that are free and fair. And we will continue to speak truth despite extortion and intimidation.”
