Cancel culture has just triggered one form of backlash that has been long overdue and was probably inevitable.
For too long, leftists have been running amok chasing everyone who disagrees with them out of polite society, ruining their careers, reputations and lives. Anyone who dares to express even the mildest disagreement with the newest leftist tenet du jour can expect to be met with a gargantuan outrage mob.
Even worse, major corporations have been bowing to the mob. Social media companies like Facebook and Twitter have been banning the accounts of any daring to disagree with any mainstream media narratives on any subject. Even former President Donald Trump was banned.
And in its latest form, cancel culture hysteria has even managed to ruin baseball.
Thankfully, Trump has been leading the charge and calling for conservatives to fight back. Quite reasonably, he has said on Friday night that if organizations like the MLB are going to attack conservatives, then conservatives shouldn’t give them any of their money.
Hit ‘em where it hurts: right in the pocketbook.
Trump Calls For Boycotts
Recently, the state of Georgia passed a law which tightened up its election security. The law now requires that all those requesting and receiving absentee ballots be subjected to stringent ID checks, it limits the use of ballot drop boxes and does other things to close off opportunities for election fraud.
Given the allegations of election fraud in Georgia during the 2020 Presidential Election, it’s high time that the state passed such measures, and other states should follow in its wake.
But Democrats, as might be expected, are apoplectic about this. Predictably, they have been denouncing a series of measures meant to guard against fraud as “racist.” They have asserted, without evidence, that simple measures like ID checks somehow hurt African Americans and disenfranchise them.
The hysteria has become so insane that now, Major League Baseball has decided to pull the MLB All-Star Game out of Georgia. This was done at the apparent suggestion of Joe Biden, who floated the idea during a recent interview with ESPN.
The message is clear: If you do anything to keep Democrats from stealing elections, you are to be punished and cannot be allowed to have any fun.
But former President Trump has suggested that if the MLB is going to effectively boycott conservatives, then conservatives should boycott the MLB. If the left is going to fill sports with woke garbage that doesn’t belong there, then these sports franchises should be punished until they learn to stop caving in to the mob.
“Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the radical left Democrats…” Trump said in a recent statement.
“Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections,” urged the former president.
And in a final taunt, he added, “Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all?!”
