On Friday, Major League Baseball announced it will no longer allow the 2021 All-Star Game to be held in Atlanta, blaming an election law recently passed by Georgia’s legislature and signed by the governor. The law is about voting reforms, and if you actually read it, there is nothing bad in it that the Democrats and the Woke Supremacy are crying about. There is no voter suppression. Black people can vote in a variety of ways.
So now the Woke Supremacy doesn’t even want state legislatures to be allowed to create their own laws. That means that the people who live in those states with strict voting laws to curb voter fraud, people who vote for their legislature, are to be ignored and dismissed, and we should probably throw in an accusation of racism while we’re at it. Welcome to 2021.
The left destroys everything it touches. They already destroyed football and now they’re going after baseball too. They won’t be happy until everything that is near and dear to Americans’ hearts is destroyed.
Some reporters are saying that this move by the MLB could put them in an awkward position because other states have even stronger voting restrictions than Georgia.
Republican Governor Brian Kemp said in a statement in response to the news, among other things that “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.”

He added, “This attack on our state is the direct result of repeated lies from Joe Biden and Stacey Abrams about a bill that expands access to the ballot box and ensures the integrity of our elections. I will not back down. Georgians will not be bullied. We will continue to stand up for secure, accessible, fair elections.”
The All-Star Game was to take place on July 13 in Atlanta as part of the midsummer break that includes the Futures Game on July 11 and Home Run Derby on July 12.
MLB Commissioner Robert Manfred Jr. issued a statement saying that after consulting with “Clubs, former and current players, the Players Association, and The Players Alliance,” he “decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB Draft.”
Manfred went on to say that the MLB “fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions at the ballot box,” adding that “fair access to voting continues to have our game’s unwavering support.”
He ended it by saying that the league is “finalizing a new host city and details about these events will be announced shortly.”

I think the state of Georgia should not allow the game to be broadcast and they should close all MLB stores in the state. A boycott is a boycott. And if I were the Braves, I would sue the MLB for extortion.
The MLB just told every Georgian baseball fan to go screw off.
Kemp signed the state’s new election reforms into law last week, which includes changes such as requiring absentee ballots be verified with a photo ID and expanding early voting for primary and general elections.
Democrats will probably continue to argue that black people are too stupid to know how to get a photo ID. They even think they’re too stupid to learn how to use the Internet. I think after the next election when every black or a person of color voter will have no problems voting, the Democrats will be seen for the sky-is-falling a******s that they really are.
Are The Democrats and Biden Against Israel?
As expected, Democrat politicians are screaming over the new law, with some calling for a boycott of Georgia, calling the law restrictive. If you consider closing loopholes that allowed fraud restrictive, then I guess it’s restrictive because that’s all the law does. It makes it less likely for voter fraud and I think everyone should be happy about that regardless of their political party. If you’re angry about voter fraud being thwarted, then you must want voter fraud, and you’re too intellectually dishonest to say it out loud.
