League ’caved to fear’ and ’liberal lies,’ says Georgia Gov. on MLB

Georgia Gov. Kemp slammed Major League Baseball (MLB) over its decision to move its All-Star Game from Georgia over a sweeping voting bill he recently signed into law. Kemp berated the MLB for what he said was an example of ’cancel culture.’ ’I will not back down. Georgians will not be bullied. We will continue to stand up for secure, accessible, fair elections,’ he added.

What Georgia did is morally wrong and people and corporations need to stand up to these Republican led governments that think they can take voting rights away from citizens by making it harder for them to vote. Additionally, making it a crime to hand out food and water when the restrictive voting rights they put in place are what caused the horrific long lines to vote is shameful and establishes how racists those Georgia Republicans are. Everyone should boycott anything from Georgia until they come to their senses. Voter suppression IS NOT American!!!!

This is not cancel culture....this is America letting you know we are done with the cheating on your side of the fence. This last election is proof they cant win a fair fight....and we refuse to let you attempt any other way of competition. Change your ways to fit the times....or be eaten. That simple.

The NBA has had historically low viewership this season, because of the woke nonsense. MLB will follow suit if they continue down this track.

I love how all the sports that these unintelligent trumpets love have turned against them. They get all upset for like a week and go straight back to watching. NASCAR etc don’t care what trumpets think, because they understand most trumpets are spineless with little self control and they’ll be back after they fake outrage they don’t actually even understand.

I think the most concerning problem about this is the MBL is literally making this decision based off lies and not what the bill actually says. It funny how the side who brags about college degrees also tend to be the most uninformed. If you're taking the position that even the Washington Post gave for Pinocchio's to, your probably on the wrong.

Here are the most significant changes to voting in the state, as written into the new law: Voters will now have less time to request absentee ballots. There are strict new ID requirements for absentee ballots. It’s now illegal for election officials to mail out absentee ballot applications to all voters. Drop boxes still exist … but barely. Mobile voting centers (think an R.V. where you can vote) are essentially banned. Early voting is expanded in a lot of small counties, but probably not in more populous ones. Offering food or water to voters waiting in line now risks misdemeanor charges. If you go to the wrong polling place, it will be (even) harder to vote. If election problems arise, a common occurrence, it is now more difficult to extend voting hours. With a mix of changes to vote-counting, high-turnout elections will probably mean a long wait for results. Election officials can no longer accept third-party funding (a measure that nods to right-wing conspiracy theories). With an eye toward voter fraud, the state attorney general will manage an election hotline. The Republican-controlled legislature has more control over the State Election Board. The secretary of state is removed as a voting member of the State Election Board. The G.O.P.-led legislature is empowered to suspend county election officials. Runoff elections will happen faster — and could become harder to manage. Source NYT found here at Newsvoice Hmm. Not finding the conspiracies here. Maybe after all the bs about election fraud you guys would consider federal election rules and guidelines? You know, actual rules that apply country wide. Clearly letting states decide how willing they are to make up vote blocking rules after a big upset (GEORGIA) isn't working. Yeah I know what would the poor gerrymanderers do for work? Math isn't hard. But Republican math gets harder every year. If the people are able to vote Conservatives are doomed. You are outnumbered. Maybe 2 for 1 votes for white people could be the new gerrymandering ?

This law is a solution looking for a problem. It will not solve the belief in a fantasy about election fraud. The Gov and Scry of State along with the other Georgia election officials found very little. The sole purpose is voter suppression. If they want to improve voter participation, look at the bipartison law that was just passed in Kentucky.

And the last of the sports falls. Now it's time for their revenue to follow. Do they not see how this ends? Every event that has caved to woke cultists has watched it's business model fall apart and revenue drop precipitously. #GetWokeGoBroke Mark this comment: This will be the least watched all star game in history.

I stopped supporting pro sports when players stopped being hometown heroes, and became interstate thuggish leeches. I'd be unphased if all "pro" sports evaporated.

Gov. Kemp can't talk about fair election when he did everything he could to cheat and rig the Georgia election in 2018 against Stacy Abrams. He was secretary of state at that time, ahead of the Ga. election board. Now he's Yelling cancel culture, like that's what's happening. It's was more about Republicans in Georgia losing the election in 2020 because of the worst president ever (Trump) and elected Republicans officials not doing there jobs. Ga. Legislator's changing voting laws, like one drop boxes per 100,000 or one for every polling place, which ever is smaller. Thing like, Signing a oath to vertify your ID, address, social security numbers, is correct, if that got all that identification why would you need to sign a oath. To get a mail in ballots will be more difficult, because you need so much more identification. The Georgia Legislator's gave theirself power over the Ga. election if that feel a county is not prefroming the way they think it could. It's is shocking what people's will do to win an election. Georgia don't need to cry over losing the all-star game, they need to do something about theses backwards and vicious laws. Go Braves..

Lol look at all these Republicans complaining like the little snowflakes they are. You get so upset when one little thing in your life changes and you blame it all on CNN. Get ahold of yourselves, if the whole world breathes a sigh of relief when the Republicans are put out then maybe you should reconsider your stances

Bwahahaha to all the right wing misinformation mouthpieces, your inability to see logic or reason is honestly astounding. The amount of mental gymnastics needed to justify voter suppression in the United States of a America is laughable.

How are they “caving to Biden”? Don’t they have the right to disagree on the action itself? Not a word about Biden in the article except the title.
