I guess I’m confused here.
Major League Baseball announced Friday that it will move this year’s All Star Game out of Atlanta in a direct surrender to the cancel culture crowd that is outright lying about a voting procedures bill passed by the Georgia legislature. In announcing this pathetic act of cowardice, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said that the move was was “the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport”, and said it was taken after consultation with the sport’s cowardly owners, managers and current and former players.
So, what exactly are the “values” of MLB at this point? They certainly have nothing to do with voting rights. After all, the Georgia bill actually expands voting rights in the state, adding additional days for early voting and more hours for the polls to remain open. Those “values” certainly have nothing to do with honesty, or courage, or standing up to bullies, given that MLB just caved in a cowardly manner into outright lies about this law coming from the bullies in the Perpetual Outrage Mob and the corrupt national news media.
What about racism – is MLB taking a stand against that by refusing to hold a single all-star game in a state that wants to require a voter to produce identification in order to vote? Not really, no. After all, MLB has held multiple all-star games in Texas, where voter ID has always been required in most circumstances. It has held all-star games in several other states that have always required an ID to vote.
And if a voter ID requirement is suddenly “racist,” how do we explain new polls from multiple leftist organizations that show such a provision being supported by more than 70% of the U.S. population, including majorities of Blacks, Hispanics and … wait for it … even Democrats?
Also, if MLB is taking a stand against supposed “racism” here, how can the league possibly still, in the year 2021, allow the team in Atlanta to continue carrying the name “Braves,” after decades of protests against that moniker by leftist Indian protest groups who claim that the name is racist? Indeed, if MLB won’t play its All Star Game in Atlanta, why then is it planning to allow this anti-Indian racist baseball team to play 81 home games in the very same city this year?
What does all of that reality say about the “values” of MLB and Rob Manfred?
It says they’re a bunch of money-grubbing cowards who are afraid to take a stand against the real bullies in American society today. That’s what it says about them and their “values.”
That is all.
