Major League Baseball (MLB)announced on Friday that they are moving the 2021 All-Star Game out of Georgia to protest the new voter ID law that Governor Brian Kemp signed into law last month.
MLB commissioner Rob Manfred explained that the decision was made after they spoke with teams and players and determined that moving the game was “the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport.”
Last time I checked, sports had nothing to do with politics. We don’t watch baseball to have politics and voting reformations shoved down our throats. This is literally just a tantrum like Colin Kaepernick threw in the NFL.
“Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box,” Manfred said.
The Hill reports:
Georgia and Republicans, including Gov. Brian Kemp, face mounting backlash over the elections reform law, which Democrats call a veiled attempt at voter suppression.
“Sadly, Republicans in my home state have outperformed in the category of suppressive laws with the passage of Senate Bill 202,” voting rights activist and former state Rep. Stacey Abrams (D) wrote in an op-ed this week.
The measure, among other restrictions, puts limits on ballot drop boxes and when they can be used, minimizes the period in which a Georgia resident can apply for a mail-in ballot, institutes photo ID requirements for absentee voting and bans giving out food or drink within 150 feet of polling places, including to those waiting in line to vote.
I wonder if they will be refunding the people who bought season passes to be able to attend that game who now won’t be able to.
This is beyond absurd and I hope that Kemp does not bow to their tantrum.
Nike Sues Maker of Lil Nas X’s ‘Satan Shoes’
Lil Nas X went from singing a catchy tune about a horse on a country road tosliding down a stripper pole into hell to be sodomized by Satan, complete with a line of “Satan shoes” that have human blood in the sole.
Now Nike is suing the maker of the limited edition shoes, which are being sold for $1,018 a pair, and only 666 pairs were made, for copyright infringement.
‘Captain Underpants’ Children’s Books Cancelled for ‘Passive Racism’
Just another day in the day and age of cancel culture! Today they are cancelling the children’s book series “Captain Underpants.” The books are being pulled from libraries and book shelves after its publishes declared it “perpetuates passive racism.”
I read those books when I was in middle school, and I truly do not remember anything in them that could even be close to racist. Then again, everything today is racist. Just the character wearing white underwear is probably “racist” to the left.
