Sports organizations are proving to be cowards in the face of the Left.
Major League Baseball is the latest institution to bend the knee to the “woke” mob.
But Donald Trump had two words for the MLB after they moved the all-star game.
Over the past five years, sports have become infected with the “woke” illness that’s spreading throughout society faster than the coronavirus.
Democrats and their allies in news and entertainment media have been spearheading pressure campaigns against organizations in order to get them to enforce policies that Democrat politicians could not get passed legislatively.
The MLB is the latest example.
Georgia Republicans recently passed a bill that requires voter ID and improves ballot verification, and Democrats are hopping mad.
They seemingly want fraud to be as easy as possible.
In response to the bill being signed into law, failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and other top Democrats hectored the MLB into moving the 2021 all-star game out of Georgia to push the state and get the legislature to reconsider.
Thus far, the move has backfired; the MLB acquiesced to the woke mob, and local Georgia businesses just lost $100 million in expected revenue.
And things could get worse for the MLB because Donald Trump finally chimed in on the issue.
He encouraged Americans to “boycott baseball” to illustrate just how badly the MLB botched the entire saga.
Trump wrote, “Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections…Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!”
Democrats were deeply concerned about election integrity prior to election night, then they switched on a dime when Biden was announced the winner by the corporate press.
Trump continued, “[T]hey are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter I.D., which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections.”
Over 100 companies condemned the Georgia voting law, including Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, Coca-Cola, Delta, and many more.
They simply went along with the ridiculous assertion that the law was “Jim Crow 2.0.”
At some point, people as well as corporations will have to figure out that the Democrats’ rhetoric is deeply dishonest and divisive.
Trump himself has been the victim of an organization caving to political pressure.
One of Trump’s golf courses lost out on the 2022 PGA Championship taking place there because of the Capitol Hill riot that was absurdly blamed on Trump.
The “woke” assault on American institutions has spiraled out of control.
It’s incumbent on these companies to grow a spine and tell the cancel mob “no” for once.
If they won’t, then Republicans and conservatives will have to stop giving them business.
The Right incorrectly thought that private companies were immune from the predations of the Left, but they badly miscalculated the importance of culture.
Democrats hate Donald Trump so much because he’s fighting the vital cultural war, and he’s doing it well.
