By now you have probably heard that Major League Baseball (MLB) moved the All-Star Game out of Atlanta. MLB cowered like a frightened soy boy to a radical lunatic Democrat operative when it decided to join the Woke Supremacy in claiming the reason for its decision was that the new Georgia election integrity law was racist. Of course, the argument that the new law is racist is not real, but the fear of the crazy person pushing them to do it most certainly is.
As predicted by anyone who has kept up with Georgia politics, the lying miscreant applying behind-the-scenes pressure was failed Georgia lunatic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, the same woman who still refuses to concede her race against current Governor Brian Kemp.
On Wednesday evening, Fox News confirmed that Abrams was the culprit behind the MLB Commissioner’s decision.
“Major League Baseball (MLB) commissioner Robert Manfred decided to move the All-Star Game on his own after holding extensive discussions with voting rights groups associated with NBA loudmouth Lebron James, Stacey Abrams, and racist loudmouth Al not so Sharpton,” according to sources familiar with the situation.
“Abrams and Sharpton told the commissioner players would boycott the game if not. Sources say that Abrams’ current stance, that she is disappointed about the Georgia boycott, is suspect as she was a key player in the decision,” the report continued. “James has publicly supported the Georgia boycott,” adding to the commissioner’s pressure.
In other words, Abrams lied about being “disappointed” over the boycott when she was instrumental in the threats made to the MLB commissioner.
Threats like that are called extortion, a felony, and I wonder if the Georgia Attorney General will investigate?
“Abrams’ group and Sharpton also urged the commissioner to support other issues, including voter drives and H.R. 1, the For the People Act — sweeping election reform that recently passed the House,” the Fox report continued.
Apparently, Abrams was not the only one who lied here. When the MLB issued its statement, it appears that it lied to baseball fans and the players about the reasons behind its decision.
“Over the last week, we have engaged in thoughtful conversations with Clubs, former and current players, the Players Association, and the Players Alliance, among others, to listen to their views,” the statement read. No mention of LeBron James, Al Sharpton, or Stacey Abrams.
Those “among others” are radical leftist members of various levels within the Woke Supremacy who seem to be the actual force behind the MLB’s decision to move the game out of Atlanta, a decision that cost small businesses and the state of Georgia about $100 million in revenue.
MLB has since moved the game to blue-state Colorado, which has even stricter voting laws than Georgia. They moved the All-Star Game out of Atlanta, a city that is 51 percent black to Denver, a city that is about 91 percent white because they said Georgia’s new voting law is racist. And yet Colorado’s voting laws, at least in the Woke Supremacy’s mind, are worse than Georgia’s.
For example, Georgia has 17 days of in-person early voting, while Colorado only has 15. Colorado also has a photo ID requirement to vote in person. Colorado has the exact same rule that campaign workers may not give anything to voters standing in line that Georgia has.
Knowing all of this, does the MLB’s move make any sense at all?
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Tuesday did her due diligence for the Supremacy and issued an Administrative Order that fights Georgia’s election integrity law, which she is not allowed to do. What is it with Democrats overstepping their authority, and what is it with the media never reporting on it?
Bottoms’ Administrative Order declares that the election integrity measures signed into law by Governor Brian Kemp make changes that “include empowering officials to take over local election boards, limiting the use of ballot drop boxes, and imposing new voter identification requirements and limitations for the use of absentee ballots.”
Well, I’ve got news for the mayor. The Constitution’s Article I, Section 4, gives state legislatures sole authority over election laws. Anything that Bottoms was used to at the local level for federal elections can be changed by the legislature. That’s how it works.
Bottoms also made the same old argument that “voting restrictions will disproportionately impact residents in cities and counties with high-density populations, including the City of Atlanta, and will impose barriers to their ability to vote.” She could have shortened it to the law is racist.
These are the same Democrats who ignore, “…shall not be infringed,” when it comes to the Second Amendment and they don’t give a damn about a disproportionate impact on residents in cities when it comes to protecting themselves with a firearm.
In short, Democrats have selective outrage.
And the data is not on the mayor’s side with her argument about the election integrity law impacting residents in cities and counties – read black voters – because multiple studies show that voter ID laws do not and have not suppressed any voter registrations or voter turnout. Bottoms subscribes to the racist argument that black people are too stupid to learn how to get an ID even though she is black herself and has ID. The mayor also cannot lie about black voters being too poor to get an ID because voter IDs in Georgia are free, paid for by other people’s money if you qualify. I would venture to guess that it’s probably higher than 98 percent of black people who live in Georgia already have ID. Otherwise, they could not function in society today. And it’s incredibly insulting to claim otherwise, even for political reasons.
President Joe Biden, Stacey Abrams, and other members of the Democrat Woke Supremacy have referred to the Georgia election integrity law as “Jim Crow” infuriating Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, causing him to go public and fight back at such an egregious accusation.
“There is nothing ‘Jim Crow’ about requiring a photo or state-issued ID to vote by absentee ballot – every Georgia voter must already do so when voting in-person,” Kemp said in a statement to The Hill.
“President Biden, the left, and the national media are determined to destroy the sanctity and security of the ballot box,” Kemp said, adding, “It is obvious that neither President Biden nor his handlers have actually read” the Georgia law. Did anyone really expect them to read it?
