MLB Commissioner Pulled the AllStar Game From Georgia After Discussion With Abrams
Quote:As we have already reported, MLB pulled their All Star Game from Georgia in protest against the new Georgia election law which Democrats falsely claimed was Jim Crow or inhibiting voting.

After they did it and after there was a backlash to it, Stacey Abrams, who had been in full assault on the Georgia law then tried to skate away from any responsibility for the decision by MLB which cost Georgia $100 million and a whole lot of hardworking people income that, after a pandemic, one has think they desperately need. Before the backlash Abrams had been encouraging people to pressure businesses against the law. She “said business leaders should take an unequivocal stance against the proposed voting restrictions in Georgia and other states.”

Our friends over at Hot Air have some interesting news in regard to MLB and Abrams.

According to a report from Charlie Gasparino, the MLB was blindsided by Commissioner Rob Manfred’s’ decision to pull the All Star game out of Georgia and he did that after a conversation with Abrams.



So what did Abrams say to him? Did she encourage him to pull it out of Georgia?

Gasparino notes that while Abrams has since backpedaled and indicated she didn’t think they should’ve pulled out, she was partnering with people who were encouraging exactly that.



So it sounds like she might have been for it before she was against it.

Now Hot Air says it’s possible that she may have discouraged Manfred from pulling out and he did it anyway. Indeed an Atlanta-Journal Constitution reporter, Greg Bluestein, is claiming that’s the case.



Some reminded him of his prior reporting of Abrams whipping up businesses against the law.



So whether that’s CYA or whether she said pull it or don’t pull it, Abrams definitely had a hand in pushing this whole drama and Joe Biden was more than involved telling the MLB he supported the move. It wouldn’t have happened without that.

According to Gasparino, MLB is trying now to figure out how to get out of this mess of their own creation and the fact that the move was really punishing the hard working people of Georgia, including many minorities.





What they really should do is just put it back and admit they were bamboozled by the Democrats and should have learned their lesson. They’re not going to admit that or say that, dare to dream, but that’s the bottom line. And Georgians should take away that it’s all political, Democrats don’t give a darn about them and vote accordingly.

Pretty unbelievable that the MLB Commissioner would make as big a move as this without consulting the owners first. They’re the ones who elected him to the position.

What needs to be done is no one show up to the game in Denver, but that will never happen.

Give credit where it’s due: not a one of you would willingly climb in bed with a gap-toothed water buffalo.

Rob Manfred is a more courageous dude than anyone posting on this forum.

and without consulting the Atlanta Braves owner. They've spent MILLIONS preparing for this game, now they're on the hook for reimbursing Season Ticket owners.
Particularly upset will be those who purchased season tickets specifically to get access to the All-Star game.

I'm not a lawyer, but I have spent time in Philadelphia. The Braves just may have some legal grounds to seek relief

Notice that all of the other leagues are silent. MLB had a problem either way because their All-Star game happened to be in Atlanta. Moving it creates less headache than having in Atlanta.

The owners won't say a thing. Bow to liberals or die.

MLB better realize if this thing goes south, it's his butt that will be left out to dry. Abrams, LeBron, and whomever else was involved will be protected

FYI... usually at this point you provide proof of what it is you're claiming.

I can't argue with that first statement. I wouldn't want to be in the same room as that pig, much less anywhere near a bed. I would rather whack off using a rusty cheese grater than to even think about this, but because of you I have a mental image that I cannot remove from my head.

You like the fact that she just prevented millions from being spent in a city that is 51% black and forced it to move the a city that has a majority of white people? Who did she hurt?

An estimated 100 million dollar loss of tourism dollars which would impact restaurants, hotels, and transportation workers. Again who did Abrams hurt worse?
