I find it interesting the left is depending on threats and rhetoric. Why not test these changes in court? I think we know why.
Oh, I definitely expect this to go to court. And just a short 20 years ago, it would have been overturned, but today? Your guess is as good  is mine.

I know you're young, you aren't old enough to appreciate the gravity of the situation, let alone recognize the severity and speed at which the left is moving, but people like you will one day wake up to nothing.
It will be too late to complain about anything, because it will all be gone. The left is purposefully destroying everything you enjoy to punish you into submission.
But you keep hanging onto your illusion that it will get better while I go about life oblivious to the changes taking place around you.

I assure you, if your generation doesn't say enough is enough, the Marxists will take it all.

Donald Trump: ‘Boycott Baseball’ and ‘Woke Companies’ Opposing Georgia Election Law

President Donald Trump called for a boycott of Major League Baseball (MLB) Friday after they canceled the 2021 All-Star game in Atlanta to protest the new Georgia election law.

“Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections,” Trump wrote. “Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!”

Over 100 companies joined to condemn the law after it was signed, including Facebook, Google, Bank of America, Apple, Microsoft, Coca-Cola, American Express, Delta, and the Home Depot.

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred announced Friday his decision to move the All-Star game to a different host city, citing “thoughtful conversations” with players.

“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,” he wrote in a statement.

Trump said baseball is losing “tremendous numbers” of fans because they are afraid of the radical left.

“[T]hey are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter I.D., which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections,” Trump wrote.

The new Georgia law, signed by Gov. Brian Kemp, requires an ID in order to get an absentee ballot and makes it illegal to mail out absentee ballot applications to voters.

It's head-scratching of 45 to say boycott our national pastime after pleading with The MLB to reinstate Pete Ross & his pleas to induct Curt Shilling into Cooperstown.

To try to reach through the chaff ....


1)  MLB is headquartered in NY which has much more restrictive voting laws than the new Georgia bill.  By his own admission, Rob Manfred cancelled the game due to "pressure" from Coca Cola ... etc.  not due to any insight on why Georgia's bill is restrictive.

Rob ... cancel MLB due to your state being worse than the state you are creating financial hardship for because you are such a follower.

2)  Joe Biden created a war chest out of Delaware.  Delaware voting laws are more restrictive than the new Georgia bill.

Wokes .... boycott the Biden Presidency over 40 years of your repressive state response.

3) Atlanta is as divers as it comes.  I visited there to attend an instructor seminar.  When I took a bike trip, it was white people bathing in the river because they could not afford the housing.   It is Hank Aaron, and it is disrespectful of MLB to move the game.

Hey Rob ..... why not move it to a white town that Coke respects?   

So fans talked about boycotts back when the great baseball strike occurred.  Mildly successful for a year ... then baseball took off.

It is not the Atlanta Braves creating this.   It is MLB.

Boycott and send letters to Rob Manfred (MLB) and John Murphy (Coca Cola).

Those two will tell you "we are only replying to pressure". 

MLB is getting pressure from Coke and Delta.

And that ... is the story.   We no longer do anything for America ... we no longer research ... we only respond to idiots.

Boycott Coca Cola, drink beer made by Billy Carter.   Refuse any flight by Delta.

Every step you take, tie it back to this and send a letter or e-mail letting them know how appreciative you are of their abandonment of America.

Quit bitching and be an American.

John Reese is spot on.

Texas governor Abbott refuses to throw out first pitch.

Rubio asks MLB commissioner why he is two-faced.

Truth out is that MLB did not move the all star game due to a voting law ... they moved it due to pressure from corporate sponsors.

Can anyone tell us the corporate sponsors who find free elections deplorable?

Because the CCP told all of them, that if they want to keep doing business with the communists, they'll do as they're told.
Doe anyone need a better reason to finally say "Enough Is Enough", and boycott?

Where do you think cancel culture came from? It is communists trying to kill American culture.

Our Nation is fine, it doesn't need healing, it needs to turn off the damn TV and if any industry is political, then it doesn't deserve our money!
Remember when NASA was apolitical, weather was apolitical, when healthcare was apolitical?

Remember when sports was actually pro American?

Fuck MLB! I dumped them back when the players started spiting on the fans. Fuck professional sports!

All the MLB has done is line their own pockets with money.  Like most of congress on both side.  All of MLB and congress is over paid.

You are correct MLB. Is a business. But here in the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area, Mr. Middleton listens to us, respects us. I am sorry about Georgia. It is so awful Raffensperger could have helped 45 find the ballots & didn't but instead. Senator Warnock cost them 100 million.

Boycotting baseball is cancel culture.

When you join mass hysteria, it is difficult to separate the parties.

I will not fly Delta, nor will I buy a Coke product because they are fearful flies.  I have to wonder what they produce.  Do they lie about what the product contains, or their plane maintenance records?  I haven't bought a Coke product or flown Delta in years ... not part of the cancel culture ... just how I view corporate America.

Nike endorses athletes to promote product, and when there is a sniff of a problem ... cancels them ...  I would never pay for Nike sneakers when I can get the same quality at 10%.  Not cancel culture.

On the same token, Nike still endorses Lebron James and the Equality shoe.  I still do not own Equality shoes.

No, Corporate sports and their caving to Marxist dogma is cancel culture, and the only way to end its pervasiveness is to stop patronizing them, hit their bottom-line, the very reason they're in business.
If they can't fund their coercion, they will be forced to change, or a better entity will take their place.

We're a Capitalist Nation, where the consumer is King. If industry refuses to support American ideals, it deserves the path of the buggy whip manufacturer.

You really don't understand communists, do you?
