A sad irony to behold

MLB logoA conservative activist says moving the all-star baseball game from Atlanta to Denver will punish many small businesses that are still trying to recover from the pandemic.

President Joe Biden led the charge in calling for major corporations, including Major League Baseball (MLB), to punish the state of Georgia for passing voter integrity measures aimed at preventing future election fraud. MLB complied and moved the scheduled July 13th All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver – a city in Colorado, which actually has stricter voting laws than the new Georgia statutes.

"Joe Biden campaigned on the idea of bringing America together," recalls Gary Bauer, chairman of the Campaign for Working Families. "Joe Biden encouraged the boycott against the state of Georgia, so Major League Baseball felt empowered, I'm sure, to punish Georgia because the president of the United States praised companies that were punishing the state of Georgia."

And Bauer notes the irony in the situation.

"By cancelling the All-Star Game in Atlanta, what President Biden has done, along with the two Democrat senators that were just elected in January from Georgia, they have hurt badly the small businessmen and women," he says.

The CWF chairman hopes these business owners remember this the next time there is an election in Georgia.
