Marco Rubio Just Dared MLB Commissioner to Put His Money Where His Mouth Is…

The MLB recently made a big political grand stand, and boy, oh boy is it blowing up in their face.

The instant blow back that they’re suffering is so bad that they could give the NFL a run for it’s money.

Several top law makers are absolutely shredding the MLB’s decision to pull the All Star Game out of Atlanta, GA after the state decided to require an ID to vote.

Apparently that goes against the MLB’s “values,” but like many have pointed out, the league seems to only have values when money isn’t involved, because if that were the case, they would’ve parted ways with China a long time ago.

And Marco Rubio just pointed out another big inconsistency in their values as the MLB commissioner Bob Manfred still belongs to the prestigious Georgia’s Augusta National Golf Club.

Check it out:

FROM BREITBART 

“I AM UNDER NO ILLUSION THAT MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL WILL SACRIFICE BUSINESS REVENUE ON BEHALF OF ITS ALLEGED CORPORATE VALUES,” RUBIO SAID. “SIMILARLY, I AM UNDER NO ILLUSION YOU INTEND TO RESIGN AS A MEMBER FROM AUGUSTA NATIONAL GOLF CLUB. TO DO SO WOULD REQUIRE A PERSONAL SACRIFICE, AS OPPOSED TO THE WOKE CORPORATE VIRTUE SIGNALING OF MOVING THE ALL STAR GAME FROM ATLANTA.”

“TAKING THE ALL-STAR GAME OUT OF GEORGIA IS AN EASY WAY TO SIGNAL VIRTUES WITHOUT SIGNIFICANT FINANCIAL FALLOUT. BUT SPEAKING OUT AGAINST THE CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY WOULD INVOLVE A SIGNIFICANT LOSS OF REVENUE AND BEING CLOSED OUT OF A LUCRATIVE MARKET.” RUBIO CONCLUDED.

RUBIO’S REQUEST COMES AMID REPORTS ATLANTA’S BUSINESSES WILL LOSE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FROM THE BOYCOTT. TUDY RODNEY, A BLACK BUSINESS OWNER, CALLED MLB’S DECISION “CRUSHING.”

“WE ARE TRYING TO BUILD BACK FROM A PANDEMIC THAT HAPPENED LAST YEAR, AND SOMETHING LIKE THIS IS NOT GOOD FOR BUSINESS,” RODNEY TOLD FOX 5 WAGA.

THE ECONOMIC IMPACT MAY FALL SOMEWHERE BETWEEN $37 MILLION AND $190 MILLION. “SOME DISPUTE THE HIGH-END OF THOSE PROJECTIONS, IT’S SAFE TO SAY THE CITY – ESPECIALLY LOWER-WAGE WORKERS WHO WOULD HAVE WORKED THE EVENT – WOULD HAVE BENEFITED GREATLY,” BREITBART NEWS REPORTED.

We’ll have to wait and see if Manfred is ready to put his money where his mouth is and drop his fancy golf club.
