Today’s highly interesting read (04/06/21): Major Woke Baseball’s Atlanta Stunt

Atlanta Braves unveil 2021 All-Star Game Logo - Talking Chop
Coors Field in Denver has been chosen to host this year’s All-Star Game, sources told ESPN on Monday. MLB opted to move the game out of Atlanta due to voting laws passed in Georgia last month.

Today’s read is from Nate Jackson of the Patriot Post. Here’s an excerpt:

“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly,” Biden also said. “The very people who are victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports.” You know, those poor victims who earn $10, $20, or even $30-plus million a season to play a game. Biden added, “This is Jim Crow on steroids, what they’re doing in Georgia and 40 other states.”

For his gross dishonesty about the law, even his fan boys at The Washington Post rebuked him with “four Pinocchios.” Yet his lies just cost a city that gave him Georgia’s 16 electoral votes roughly $100 million. Fine repayment.

Consider all the wages lost for workers at the stadium, many of whom are minorities. Or the lost business and wages for the hotels that will no longer have rooms booked or restaurants without meals served. MLB is punishing Biden’s own voters for his lies. Perhaps that’s poetic justice.

  1. Former Milwaukee Sports columnist Michael Hunt writes:
    Interesting that those who hypocritically claim “cancel culture” in wanting to boycott MLB because of its defense of voting rights are generally the same people who advocated boycotting the NFL and NBA because players peacefully took a knee in defense of social justice, and NASCAR because it banned the racist and traitorous confederate flag.

  2. Paul, read the actual bill and not the NY Times, et al. Nothing wrong with the law.

    It is 95 pages long so here are the key points.

    Requires an ID number, like a driver’s license, to apply for an absentee ballot
    Cuts off absentee ballot applications 11 days before an election
    Limits the number of absentee ballot drop boxes
    Allows the state to take control of what it calls “underperforming” local election systems
    Disallows volunteers from giving away food and drink to voters waiting in lines
    Revises times for advance voting
    Allows election officials to begin scanning verified ballots on the third Monday before election day
    Requires two Saturday voting days and makes two Sunday voting days optional
    Revises times for runoffs to be held on the 28th day after a general or special primary election

    Pretty cruel isn’t it.
