Major League Baseball caved to cancel culture.
But baseball thought they could get away with it.
And then all broke loose when Major League Baseball made this decision to move the All-Star Game.
On Friday, Major League Baseball caved to pressure from Joe Biden and other woke corporate bullies and moved the 2021 All-Star game and entry draft out of Atlanta after Biden and his allies spread lies and misinformation about Georgia’s new election integrity law.
“Over the last week, we have engaged in thoughtful conversations with Clubs, former and current players, the Players Association, and The Players Alliance, among others, to listen to their views,” a statement from Manfred read.
“I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB Draft.”
“Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box. In 2020, MLB became the first professional sports league to join the non-partisan Civic Alliance to help build a future in which everyone participates in shaping the United States. We proudly used our platform to encourage baseball fans and communities throughout our country to perform their civic duty and actively participate in the voting process. Fair access to voting continues to have our game’s unwavering support,” Manfred added.
Manfred’s decision was more about corporate virtue signaling than any commitment to democracy or so-called “social justice.”
That same week Major League Baseball finalized a deal with the Communist Chinese government aligned tech company Tencent.
Last year, Tencent backed out of an agreement with the NBA after Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey expressed support for democracy in Hong Kong in the face of a Communist Chinese crackdown.
Baseball – of course – shows no sign of disassociating itself from its lucrative blood money deals with the murderous Communist Chinese government.
Instead, it declared it was essentially now just another political action committee for the Democrat Party.
