Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp is clearly not happy with the decision by Major League Baseball to relocate the 2021 All-Star Game from Atlanta and move it to a new undetermined location. The move by MLB was made in response to the passage of Georgia’s latest round of voter reform bills known as the Election Integrity Act.
Kemp Speaks Out to Media About MLB Decision
Kemp has been making the talk show rounds expressing his displeasure with MLB for its decision. He recently appeared on FOX News Channel’s “FOX & Friends Weekend” on Saturday morning, criticizing not only MLB but also President Joe Biden and voting rights advocate Stacey Abrams.
The Republican governor is criticizing MLB for going along with the cancel culture purported by Democrats. It is hard to ignore that the MLB decision came after Biden compared the voter reforms to Jim Crow laws when he was interviewed by ESPN about the issue.
Abrams Also to Blame
Abrams also bears some of the blame for the ongoing cancel culture in the state of Georgia. The well-known Democrat previously blamed voter suppression as the reason that she lost to Kemp in the Georgia 2018 gubernatorial race. She had previously used her influence as the state’s de facto Democratic Party leader to ask corporate leaders to speak out about these alleged voter suppression bills. Delta Airlines and Coca-Cola both came out publicly against the Election Integrity Act last week after being largely silent on the issue.
The decision to pull the All-Star Game is yet another way that Abrams oversteps her position to benefit the Democrats.
