Biden Tosses Support Behind Moving MLB All-Star Game Out Of Georgia In Retaliation For New Election Laws
President Joe Biden has come out and fully endorsed moving the Major League Baseball All-Star game out of the state of George as an act of revenge against the state for their new election laws.
Biden gave his support for the move during an interview with ESPN on Wednesday where he also gave praise to athletes who are “acting incredibly responsibly” by using their cultural influence to help push liberal politics.
“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them [moving the all-star game out of Atlanta],” Biden said during his talk with ESPN’s Sage Steele. “People look to them. They’re leaders.”
“Look at what’s happened with the NBA, as well. Look what’s happened across the board. The very people who are victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports, and it’s just not right,” Biden added. “This is Jim Crow on steroids what they’re doing in Georgia and 40 other states.”
The president then went on to repeat false claims that the new law prohibited food and drink at polling places and mandated the polls close at 5 p.m.
“Imagine passing a law saying you cannot provide water or food for someone standing in line to vote? Can’t do that? Come on,” the president said. “Or you’re going to close a polling place at five o’clock when working people just get off? This is all about keeping working folks and ordinary folks that I grew up with from being able to vote.”

The Georgia law implements restrictions on handing out food and drink near polling places similar to restrictions already in place in New York and Biden’s home state of Delaware. The restrictions are designed to prevent lobbyists or special interest from handing out concessions at polling places. It does not ban voters from bringing or ordering food, nor does it prohibit polling workers from setting out self-service water stations or distributing food donated for general use.
The law does not mandate that polls close by 5 p.m. Election Day voting in Georgia lasts from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and as long as voters are in line by 7 p.m., they are allowed to vote. Nothing in the new law changes those rules. In fact, the new election law expands voting access for most Georgia residents, according to The Washington Post.
MLB Players Association Executive Director Tony Clark stated last week that the player’s union would “look forward” to holding talks about moving the all-star game out of Georgia as an act of protest.
“We have not had a conversation with the league on that issue. If there is an opportunity to, we would look forward to having that conversation,” Clark stated.
Welp. Looks like liberals have now ruined baseball along with football and basketball. There’s truly nothing sacred for these people. They plan on fully poisoning every area of society with politics until there is nowhere to hide from their propaganda.
