The MLB has officially sealed it’s fate with possibly one of the dumbest moves in sports history.

Their choice to withdraw the All-Star Games from Georgia has been absolutely lambasted, with many citing the fact that their decision actually harms the minority community in Atlanta as it practically decimates the cities economy.

Although now the pressure is on for other sports leagues to follow suit and make a big virtue signalling move, but the Masters Tournament just swatted down their chance to make a grandious political statement and is staying true to Georgia.

 WASHINGTON EXAMINER

THE CHAIRMAN OF AUGUSTA NATIONAL GOLF CLUB AND THE MASTERS TOURNAMENT WALKED A FINE LINE IN HIS FIRST COMMENTS ABOUT GEORGIA’S NEW VOTING LAW.

FRED RIDLEY TOLD REPORTERS ON WEDNESDAY THAT VOTING RIGHTS ARE “FUNDAMENTAL TO WHO WE ARE AS A PEOPLE,” AND WHILE HE DIDN’T SAY IF HE PERSONALLY SUPPORTED OR OPPOSED THE LAW, RIDLEY EXPLAINED THAT THE LEGENDARY COMPETITION WILL STILL GO ON AS PLANNED.

“THE RIGHT TO VOTE IS FUNDAMENTAL IN OUR DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY,” SAID RIDLEY. “NO ONE SHOULD BE DISADVANTAGED IN EXERCISING THAT RIGHT, AND IT IS CRITICAL THAT ALL CITIZENS HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THE ELECTORAL PROCESS.”

“WE REALIZE THAT VIEWS AND OPINIONS ON THIS LAW DIFFER, AND THERE HAVE BEEN CALLS FOR BOYCOTTS AND OTHER PUNITIVE MEASURES. UNFORTUNATELY, THOSE ACTIONS OFTEN IMPOSE THE GREATEST BURDENS ON THE MOST VULNERABLE IN OUR SOCIETY,” RIDLEY SAID, REFERENCING THE CITY OF ABOUT 200,000 PEOPLE WHERE THE TOURNAMENT IS LOCATED.

HE SAID THOSE RESIDENTS ARE THE “VERY FOCUS OF THE POSITIVE DIFFERENCE” THE GOLF CLUB IS TRYING TO MAKE.

DEMOCRATS AND LIBERAL ACTIVIST GROUPS HAVE PUSHED HARD FOR CORPORATIONS TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST THE GEORGIA LAW, WHICH CHANGES SOME VOTING SCHEDULING PROCEDURES, LIMITS THE NUMBER OF ABSENTEE BALLOT DROP BOX LOCATIONS, AND REQUIRES PHOTO IDS IN ORDER TO VOTE ABSENTEE BY MAIL.

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

Published

on

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.

Rand Paul Just Blasted Out Something The MLB Has Been Trying to Keep Very Quiet

Published

on

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.

FROM SPORTS MEDIA

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.
