What hypocrisy! And stupidity!
Acting like the spoiled kid who picks up his bat and glove and heads for home when he doesn’t get his way, Major League Baseball has chosen to move its 2021 All-Star Game out of Atlanta because of Georgia’s new election integrity law.
In the wake of the 2020 election, Republican Gov. Brian Kemp passed legislation that the left insists is controversial because it mandates voters show ID to request and cast absentee ballots — a security measure that mirrors MLB’s own ticketing procedures.
Although the recently passed law has zero impact on the league directly, MLB nevertheless joined the rest of the woke mob in erroneously attacking the Peach State for racially motivated voter suppression.
Far from it, the law only includes commonsense changes like securing ballot drop boxes, tightening deadlines to request absentee ballots and disqualifying ballots incorrectly cast outside of the voter’s precinct.
Still, MLB has joined with the rest of the pack in the one-note chant of “white supremacy” and punished the state by moving its July 13 game — and the revenue that comes along with it — out of Georgia.
At the same time, MLB requires baseball fans to show photo ID to pick up tickets purchased online or left at will call.
Yet the league has not branded its own measure spectator suppression or any such nonsense — and Rep. Nancy Mace was not about to let that fact slide.
The South Carolina Republican savaged this hypocrisy in a tweet Friday that included a screen shot from MLB’s website showing that a “person will need a picture ID to pick up their tickets.”
