Let’s be honest here…
We all know that the MLB’s move to boycott Georgia for their decision is just a “woke” PR stunt that will backfire in their faces. This is nothing more than a way for the league to make a big, flashy political statement – and in the process, they will destroy American families, but progressives don’t care about that silly stuff.
The big reason why this is so blatantly apparent is due to the fact that the MLB will vehemently stand against simply showing your ID at the voting podium, but they apparently have zero issue now working with China – something they’ve kept on the “down low.”
China has repeatedly committed slews of human rights violations – gross, vile, unthinkable violations.
And one person who is putting the MLB on blast for this new “China gig” is Rand Paul, who called the league out in this blistering tweet:
Rand isn’t telling tall tales here, the MLB is indeed in cahoots with China as one of their major broadcasting partners.
THREE-YEAR CONTRACT RUNS UNTIL END OF 2023 SEASON
MORE THAN HALF A DOZEN ASIAN COUNTRIES AND REGIONS INCLUDED IN DEAL, ACCORDING TO CHINA NEWS
TENCENT SIGNED ON AS MLB’S OFFICIAL DIGITAL BROADCASTING PARTNER IN CHINA BACK IN 2018
MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL (MLB) HAS EXPANDED ITS RIGHTS AGREEMENT WITH TENCENT IN A DEAL THAT WILL SEE THE CHINESE MEDIA GIANT BROADCAST GAMES FROM THE NORTH AMERICAN BASEBALL LEAGUE IN SEVERAL ASIAN MARKETS.
THE THREE-YEAR CONTRACT, WHICH RUNS UNTIL THE END OF THE 2023 SEASON, WILL SEE TENCENT CONTINUE TO LIVE STREAM MLB GAMES IN CHINA AND – FOR THE FIRST TIME – IN MORE THAN HALF A DOZEN ASIAN TERRITORIES ON ITS INTERNATIONAL OVER-THE-TOP (OTT) PLATFORM WETV.
ACCORDING TO CHINA NEWS, THE OTHERS COUNTRIES COVERED INCLUDE INDONESIA, MALAYSIA AND THAILAND. THE OTHER MARKETS HAVE NOT YET BEEN REPORTED BUT WETV CURRENTLY OPERATES IN BANGLADESH, BRUNEI, CAMBODIA, THE MALDIVES, MYANMAR, NEPAL, PAKISTAN, THE PHILIPPINES, SRI LANKA, AND VIETNAM.
Well obviously they’ve got quite a cushy deal with China, so they’re certainly not going to let that go.
But when money isn’t involved, it seems the MLB is more than willing to make a grandiose statement.
