Trump urges supporters to ‘boycott baseball’ and the ‘woke companies’ protesting new Georgia voting law

According to Breitbart, former President Donald Trump called for a boycott on Friday of Major League Baseball and other companies who chose to protest a recently-passed Georgia voting and election reform law, claiming that it was a form of voter suppression. 

“Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections,” Trump wrote in a statement. “Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!”

Nearly 100 companies, including Facebook, Google, Bank of America, Microsoft, and The Home Depot, have come out and publicly denounced the controversial Georgia law, which now requires voter identification for absentee ballots while making universal mail-in ballots illegal, among other voting changes meant to prevent voter fraud and bolster election integrity in future elections.

“Best way to demonstrate our values”

Trump’s call to boycott professional baseball followed MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred’s announcement on Friday that the MLB All-Star Game would be moved out of Atlanta as a form of protesting the new voting laws.

“I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB Draft,” he wrote in a statement, citing “thoughtful conversations” with players.

However, much of the opposition to the law seems to be based on rampant misinformation about its provisions and what it aims to do in terms of voting.

The Washington Post gave President Joe Biden a “Four Pinocchios” rating for recently claiming that the law would close the polls at 5 p.m. on Election Day while adding that the new law was reminiscent of the Jim Crow era. Biden also called the law “sick” and “un-American,” but he was grossly mistaken or outright lying about many aspects of the new law.

The law would allow early voting locations to close at 5 p.m. on weekends, but not require them to do so. Polling places would remain open until 7 p.m. on Election Day as they had been previously.

In the report calling out Biden’s misinformation, The Post noted that the law actually expanded opportunities for many Georgians to vote early or absentee, but did require tightened ID measures to obtain an absentee ballot.

Democrats say law is “racist”

Democrats have widely attacked the law as being “racist” even though there’s nothing in the language of the law that discriminates against voters based on race or any other protected category.

Unfortunately, it seems that many companies have fallen for the Democrats’ lies about the new law and bowed to the “woke” police, which seems to be a popular form of garnering some extra public relations attention that cannot normally be bought.

If Republicans don’t find a way to stop letting the Democrats label everything “racist” just because they don’t like it, they are doomed to lose elections for the foreseeable future no matter what laws they put in place, as it’s not a stretch to presume that millions of Americans have grown tired of the political games.

  1. The Dems want complete control of our liberties. which includes freedom of press, freedom of speech, freedom to vote, freedom to bear arms, and a great deal more! The Dems are nothing more than the Communist party, and America needs to wake up before it is to late!

    1. I agree with you. These are Obama’s past policies – he wants total government control and Joe Biden Is his voice. By hook or by crook, he has achieved his 3rd term. 2022 is America’s last chance – vote the left-leading Democrats out.

      1. I agree with Diane. I totally hate obama and his ways. Seems like when Biden does something, which is normally just to undo what Trump did, it is following obamas footsteps. Biden can’t think for himself, he must have it written and read it, but still he messes up the words and stutters. Or if it is walking, he stumbles and falls. Biden is a mere copy cat or reverse doer. He deserves to be impeached.

    EVERY STATE ELECTS PEOPLE TO GOV. THE STATE WITH THE LAWS THAT THEY DEEM FIT. GEORGIA IS NO EXCEPTIONS.
    I LIVE IN OHIO AND WHAT GOES ON IN OHIO IS OUR BUSINESS. WHAT OUR LAW MAKERS DO OR DO NOT DO AFFECTS THE PEOPLE OF OHIO. THE MLB NEEDS TO STAY OUT OF IT. HOW DARE YOU CANCEL A GAME THAT HAS BEEN IN THE MAKING FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS BECAUSE THE DEMOCRATES DON’T LIKE THE LAW!! SHAME ON YOU BECAUSE YOU JUST DIDN’T HURT REPUBLICAN BUSINESSES YOU HURT DEMOCRATE RUN BUSINESSAS AS WELL. YOU SHOULD BE ASHAME OF YOURSELVES FOR GETTING INVOLVED IN THE POLITICS.

  4. If you don’t kill these dangerous democrats ideas in the shell before they are hatched, they will destroy America as we know it. So kill them as they prop up.

  5. Dems love abortion they should abort these ideas before they destroy our country they are communists a lot of Democrats voted for Donald J Trump the liberals are the communist party they must be stopped before it’s to late

  6. I am so sick of hearing the complaints and whining about how the Democrats are ruining our Country. Trump warned us, and so many others warned us but did we Listen NO because we thought Election Integrity was A GIVEN amongst all Politicians but I found out that CHEATING is the New Norm, so we better get good at what the Democrats do best and that is Cheating to Win!

  7. I sincerely hope that MLB enjoys the same lack of fan turnout that the NFL got. The players just don’t get it as to who pays their outlandish contracts. The owners and the players will both suffer from the from a lack or decline in TV revenue. Unfortunately I doubt they will. We can hope though. Jersey sales and accessories will decline. Standing up for ourselves is even more paramount than ever.

  8. The people who use the race card are the true racists. Wa wa wa cry all the way home, as the little piggy does. The people who are blind need to stop and see and what’s going on and change their perspective. And not from the mainstream media. They need to research the issues. Obama is back in office. Who do you think is running the show from behind the curtain. It’s sickening. People did not like Trump and, given, he’s not perfect but he got the job done. Not like Obama is now…I mean Biden. 😉

  9. I am sick and tired of the Dems playing the race card every time they don’t get their own way.They have no intention of trying to unify this country,only trying to tear it apart more than it already is. Enough!

    1. You have all hit the nail on the head. Liberals are tearing this country apart. I fear that unless more of the Republicans get a backbone and start fighting for the constitution-(and our God given rights)-we as a nation will be no more. The liberals will force their agenda through.
