I thought you said they were changing who the voters are?

I thought you said it stopped black people from voting?

I thought you said it stopped black people from voting on the day they wanted?

Just more lies.

Lies on lies on more lies.

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.

Who knew black people were so helpless? They can’t drive or cash a check or get a job all because they don’t know how to get a license or photo ID.

Apparently they don’t have cars and the city buses don’t stop by the DMV or the Polling stations either. However, they do bus BLM from riot to riot.

Apparently there are a lot of black people in small towns in Middle & South Georgia that have gone under the radar. They've come out to vote in 2018 & 2020 which made elections in Georgia very close. State officials have been purging people from the rolls for years. Many of these people don't even know until they try to vote, by then it's too late.

It the same way in my state and that is how it should be, otherwise the voter rolls are filled with dead people and it opens the door for fraud (which of course is all you really want here).

Its my job to make sure I am on the voter roll if I have not voted in several years.

That is not the states job, its my responsibility. It took me about a minute to fill out a card and drop it in the mail. DONE

In Alabama, we’re asked a couple extra things when getting our drivers license(didn’t get mine til I was 18) or renewals. Are you registered to vote? Do you want to? Are you an organ donor? Do you want to be?

Its amazing the outcry after Trump won of voter interference and muh Russia and worried of more muh Russia in 2020.... you would think these clowns would want safeguards in place to stop muh Russia alone, not even getting into the other possibilities of election meddling and fraud.

But muh no, theyve moved on... where is a question like that to the dementia patient?

Quote:Former professional basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said Friday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that Major League Baseball moving the All-Star Game from Atlanta, GA following the passage of a new voter law “means something to everybody.”

Melber asked, “Kareem, what does it mean for Major League Baseball to take a stand like this right now?”

Abdul-Jabbar said, “I think it’s very significant, Ari, because it shows that this means something to everybody. This is something that we all want to see end. Voter suppression is not what democracy is about. We all want to see it end. By Major League Baseball making a statement like that, they show that they are concerned and that the people — that so many of their players are people of color, they’re probably worried about it also.”

Link

Quote:On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp ® stated that New York has harsher voting laws than Georgia, and that he supposes that we should boycott Major League Baseball for having its headquarters in New York.

Kemp said, “Well, look, it’s so hypocritical, too. … Major League Baseball, headquartered in New York. Delta’s flying to New York. I’m sure Coca-Cola sells a lot of product in New York. When you look at New York’s voting laws, you have to have an excuse to vote absentee by mail in New York. You do not in Georgia. If you want to vote absentee here, you can do it. We have 17 days of in-person early voting before the election for people to participate. We now have two more optional days if counties opt-in to that on Sundays. It was in this bill that’s actually expanding access for voting opportunities early. New York has 10. So, we have either seven or nine days more than New York, where Major League Baseball is headquartered. I guess we should be boycotting them for having their headquarters in New York. Because that law is more restrictive than ours.”

MLB has a very weak national TV contract anyways. Their money is made on the local TV contracts.

Too many untraceable ballots were cast.

It’s easy to say “there’s no evidence of fraud” when there’s no way to trace it.

It's easy to say any bull**** when you have no proof.

Exactly the point. When you let ballots come from anywhere there’s no way to prove it. Eventually the other side will start stuffing too, and there will be no faith in elections. We need to insure one vote per legal voter.

RE: MLB Blew a Raspberry
Quote:With the MLB pulling their all-star game out of Georgia, tens of millions of dollars in local revenue for business owners in the Atlanta area have gone poof. That decision to punish Georgia for their new election reform law came after a relentless campaign of lies about the bill, including Joe Biden himself calling it “Jim Crow 2.0,” a suggestion so historically illiterate and offensive that you almost have to be impressed at the shamelessness.

But there’s one figure who led the way – Stacey Abrams.

The failed gubernatorial candidate has turned into a cult figure in mainstream media circles and among the broader left-wing coalition. It doesn’t matter that she’s a failure. She speaks, and they listen intently, hanging on her every word, and she had a lot of words to say about Georgia’s law. She’s proclaiming it “voter suppression,” spreading disinformation about the provisions in the law, and whipping up corporate outrage.

Of course, it was all fun and games until the MLB actually took action. Now, Abrams doesn’t want you looking in her direction when it comes time to assign blame.

Here’s Abrams super-fan Jake Tapper spreading her propaganda that she pleaded with corporations to not boycott Georgia after she led a disinformation campaign against Georgia. Makes sense, right?




The video Tapper links to (shown above) is Abrams literally asking corporations to “use their clout” to punish Georgia for its election reform bill. But she didn’t really “mean it” like that, you guys. She just meant to write angry letters talking about how evil Republicans are so as to help her party in the next election.

But when you drop a lion into a locked room, you can’t then claim you told it not to eat anyone. Abrams’ lies had consequences, and those consequences are now taking money out of the pockets of small businesses in her state. Was her virtue signaling and lying on cable news worth it? I’d guess most voters don’t think so, and they shouldn’t forget that when 2022 rolls around.

Abrams wants everyone to forget her part in this, but as they say down south, that dog won’t hunt. She made the choice to not only actively lie, but to lobby corporations to take action. Well, they did so, and now she’s responsible. You don’t get to be a “leader” when it’s easy and then obfuscate when it comes time to own the consequences of your leadership. Anyone making excuses for Abrams at this point is just a hack – period.

Quote:It's not an op-ed or a commentary piece. It's not even packaged as "analysis," the favorite term far-left "news" company CNN uses for opinion pieces. It's a straight up news piece on CBSnews.com, and the headline openly takes sides, offering suggestions to companies on "3 ways [they] can help fight Georgia's restrictive new voting law."

The body of the piece, predictably, begins from the premise that the law is bad and should be opposed by all companies. The piece notes that "Critics charge that such changes amount to the 2021 version of Jim Crow rules and other historical efforts to suppress the vote to gain a political advantage." Nary a word of the piece offers any suggestion that anyone thinks differently. No suggestion was offered whatsoever in defense of the bill, which makes Georgia's voting law less restrictive than many other states and did not put into place a single restriction that is not already the law in numerous other states. None of the law's features that made it easier to vote in Georgia, such as expanded early voting and permanent ballot drop box locations, were mentioned. Nay, only the contention that "Critics charge that such changes amount to the 2021 version of Jim Crow rules," which was left to stand unchallenged, even though such a contention is transparent hyperbole at best and willfully false at worst.

Having thus begged the question, the article proceeds to helpfully offer all responsible corporations some advice on how to fight Georgia's law, leaning heavily on the "activists" who have actively mischaracterized the law for help.

Suggestion one: "Do not donate." Acting as a megaphone for these activists, CBS encourages companies in the article not to donate to two specific politicians, "Barry Fleming and Michael Dugan, the Georgia Republicans who co-sponsored the voting changes." The article then shames corporations like Delta Airlines, Coca-Cola, and UPS who have done so in the past. Suggestion two calls upon corporations to "spread awareness" so that similar bills are not passed in states like Texas and Arizona. Suggestion three asks corporations to "fight for federal law," in which the article expressly takes sides in favor of the infamous H.R. 1, which critics charge will be used to cement a lifetime Democratic majority.

Zero words in the story were offered to suggest that any of these measures might be unwarranted or unwise, or that huge, vast majorities of Americans have consistently supported laws that would require voters to display a photo ID before voting, which is the most contentious portion of the bill.

Link

Quote:On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox News @ Night,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) said that Georgia’s election law requires identification the same way Major League Baseball, Delta Air Lines, and American Airlines require people to show ID.

Roy said, “It requires voter identification to be able to be used in voting. The same kind of [photo] identification, by the way, that Major League Baseball requires when you pick up tickets, whether it’s in Atlanta or, by the way, in Fenway Park in Boston or Yankee Stadium in New York. They have no problem with [photo] ID. Of course, neither does Delta Air Lines or American Airlines have a problem with [photo] ID.”

RE: MLB Blew a Raspberry
Quote:The so-called progressive left is proving once again that they do not care about black people. Major League Baseball’s (MLB) reversal of its decision to host its All-Star game in Atlanta, Georgia, is yet another example demonstrating that the hard left is more interested in empty virtue signaling than in supporting African Americans.

MLB decided to pull this year’s All-Star game and its amateur draft out of Georgia due to its recently-passed voting legislation designed to curb voter fraud and other issues. The move came amid deceptive claims of racism and voter suppression coming from left-wing politicians, leaders, and members of the activist media.

RedState’s Brad Slager reported:

Following the prodding by President Biden, Major League Baseball made the announcement Friday afternoon that it is taking punitive action against the state of Georgia and the citizens of Atlanta. Commissioner Robert Manfred released a statement that the League has decided to pull this year’s All-Star Game, as well as the MLB amateur draft out of the state.

But what most on the left are ignoring is the notion that MLB might believe it is punishing the state of Georgia with their decision to withdraw the All-Star game, but in reality, they are punishing those they claim they are trying to help.

In supporting MLB’s actions, people like President Joe Biden, who publicly lauded the idea of this decision, are ignoring the fact that the organization is punishing black businesses that would benefit greatly from the revenue that would be generated by the event.

All-Star games tend to create a significant revenue boost for the businesses in the cities in which the events are held. When the game was held in Cleveland, Ohio, in 2019, it generated tens of millions of dollars.

David Gilbert, who leads the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission and Destination Cleveland told WKYC Studios, “It means significant dollars. $65 million in new money that will be spent by tens of thousands of people coming in from the outside.”

Atlanta, which was recently ranked as one of the top five best cities for black-owned businesses, has a high population of black entrepreneurs and small business owners. About 30 percent of its businesses are owned by African Americans. MLB’s decision means that these companies will not reap the benefits that an All-Star game can bring.

The situation becomes even more pronounced when one takes into account the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent lockdown orders. The pandemic hit black-owned businesses far harder than others.

From CBS News:

An H&R Block survey of almost 3,000 small businesses found that 53% of Black business owners saw their revenue drop by half, compared to 37% of White owners, since the pandemic started. Black business owners also had more trouble establishing an online presence for their company and were more likely to have customers submit late payments, the survey said.

The Wall Street Journal noted a study showing that 41% of black-owned businesses were forced to shut down in April 2020. Economist Robert Fairlie, was quoted in the piece, saying: “This study provides the first estimates of the early-stage effects of COVID-19 on small-business owners.” He added: “The number of working business owners plummeted from 15 million in February 2020 to 11.7 million in April 2020.”

It is unlikely that MLB’s leadership is unaware of the impact an All-Star game could have on the black-owned businesses, as well as other businesses that might need a boost after a devasting 2020. However, as with other corporations who virtue signal for dollars, their concern is not for black Americans, it is for their bottom line.

The company’s stand against Georgia’s voting laws is not based on principle; it is nothing more than empty posturing designed to curry favor with a hard left social media crybully horde that cares nothing for the black community. They are concerned that refusing to involve the organization in politics will hurt their revenue, so they are throwing black businesses under the proverbial bus proving once again that white progressives do not care about black people.

RE: MLB Blew a Raspberry
Quote:According to a report from prominent reporter/writer Howard Bryant, MLB's decision to move the 2021 All-Star Game and draft out of Atlanta was not driven by a threatened player boycott, but rather by "Corporate sponsor pressure." According to Bryant, neither the players nor the MLBPA was permitted a vote on the issue.



Bryant went further, claiming that even an organized group of players who have been attempting to pressure MLB to adopt more social-justice-friendly stances had told the Players' Association that they would play the game as normal, whether it was in Atlanta or anywhere else.



Corporations have been feeling intense pressure, driven by Democrats and liberal activists (in the media and elsewhere) to oppose Georgia's new voting reform law, and the early indications are that liberal pressure has worked. Earlier this week, corporations like Delta, Coca-Cola and others issued statements condemning the law as "unacceptable" even as most of those same corporations did not enunciate a single actual provision of the law they found objectionable.

Bryant did not indicate which corporate sponsors were responsible for the pressure, but MLB lists the following companies as corporate sponsors on their website:

Arm and Hammer

TheBlaze has reached out to each of these companies for comment, and asked whether any representatives of their companies pressured or encouraged MLB to move the All-Star Game out of Atlanta over the voter reform law, and if so, why. This post will be updated when and if those companies respond.
After the move, MLB is facing boycott calls of its own. The hashtag "#BoycottMLB" trended last night on Twitter, and the movement got another boost when former President Donald Trump encouraged those calls for a boycott in a statement released Friday night. MLB already faces a severe revenue crunch from the lack of in-person attendance last year, expected diminished attendance this year due to ongoing COVID-19 social distancing requirements, and declining television viewership. Those declining revenues also threaten the continuation of labor peace, and may lead to an extended strike or lockout after the current collective bargaining agreement ends on December 1, 2021.
