RE: MLB Blew a Raspberry
Quote:A congressman said he is planning to introduce legislation to remove an antitrust exemption for Major League Baseball in light of its decision to move its All-Star Game and 2021 draft out of Georgia in protest of the state's new Republican voting law.

Rep. Jeff Duncan made the announcement on Friday afternoon, soon after the MLB said it would be moving the events out of Atlanta.

“In light of @MLB's stance to undermine election integrity laws, I have instructed my staff to begin drafting legislation to remove Major League Baseball's federal antitrust exception,” the South Carolina Republican said. “An overwhelming bipartisan majority of Americans support requiring an ID to vote, and any organization that abuses its power to oppose secure elections deserves increased scrutiny under the law."

Duncan’s push came after Donald Trump Jr. called on Republicans in Congress to “immediately move to repeal” the exemption. “Grow some balls and fight fire with fire,” he added over Twitter.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio also weighed in on the matter, asking the GOP why it is “still listening to these woke corporate hypocrites on taxes, regulations & anti-trust.”

“Dear GOP: @MLB caves to pressure & moves draft & #AllStarGame out of Georgia on the same week they announce a deal with a company backed by the genocidal Communist Party of #China,” he said in what appears to be a reference to the MLB signing a three-year contract with a Chinese company to extend its broadcasting rights.

The antitrust exemption has been in place since 1922, when the Supreme Court ruled that antitrust law does not apply to the MLB because baseball is not considered interstate commerce. Other professional sports like the National Football League are not subject to the same exemption.

The MLB’s decision to boycott Georgia comes as other corporations across the state and country have come under pressure from Democrats and activist groups to criticize the new voting law, which among other things, requires people to have a valid ID when casting absentee ballots.

Some of the corporations that have issued statements criticizing the legislation have faced blowback from Republicans, who say that the law is being misrepresented by Democrats and that businesses are being manipulated into being used as political cudgels.

Republicans in the Georgia House even passed an amendment revoking a tax break on jet fuel for Delta after its CEO Ed Bastian called the law “unacceptable” in a memo to employees and told them that it “does not match Delta’s values.”

In announcing the decision to relocate outside Georgia, MLB Commissioner Robert Manfred Jr. said that moving the events is “the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport.”

“Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box,” he said.

MLB, NBA, NFL. What are you going to watch?

Well, I WAS going to be watching Youtube videos but now even my computer is giving me headaches. My computer genius is indisposed and who knows when he'll be available so I guess I'm gonna have to wait until I can find someone else. I haven't watched a mlb playoff or game in a looonnngg time so it doesn't affect me. I hope they go broke too, "get woke, go broke".

Does anyone know if the Computer Geeks are expensive?

There is more voter fraud in the MLB All-Star vote than there was in Georgia this November.

It’s just politics. It’s exactly the same as what the Republicans in Georgia just did to Delta. The shoe is just on the other foot now.

Actually it’s not the same. Voter fraud occurred and one side is trying to prevent it from happening again. The other side is trying to play defense while holes in the dam are plugged.

Delta supports voter fraud and now apparently so does the MLB.

Had millions upon millions of dead voters, ballots with no trace to any one individual, Illegals voting, and ballot harvesting. Even had an election worker sending home all of the poll workers except for a few hand selected to count ballots in magically appearing boxes under tables.

MLB will be a lot tougher to turn off then NBA & NFL.

:(

I am sad

NFL was already a declining product, & shutting off NBA allows me to focus on NHL. But baseball is special. Or was.

So you fully support the bill.

Its the right thing to do and its the far harder thing to do when the POTUS, MSM, MLB and the rest of the insanity mob are blatantly lying about it.

The far easier thing to do would be cave to the mob and the lies.

The easier wrong thing is to give in to the mob.
The harder right thing is to ensure the integrity of the voting process.

Without a way to ensure validity and restriction of access, you have no integrity.

The only reason for the law is because 2 senate seats and the electoral votes were lost to the Dems. They were lost because too many black people voted. Instead of coming up with better ideas and/or trying to win over more votes, they would rather change who the voters are.

Lol, the left can't win on ideas, only through cheating. There's a reason why they oppose every voting integrity measure that ensures only legal votes count.
