    Surge Summary: Major League Baseball’s Players union is lobbying to move the sport’s annual All-Star Game out of Atlanta. Why? Because Georgia lawmakers have passed measures to reform elections and strengthen voting integrity. Leftist totalitarianism is rearing its appalling head once more – this time involving “America’s Pastime”.

    Do you want multi-millionaire athletes dictating public policy to you?  I doubt it.  If someone feels strongly about matters of public policy, they’re free to run for public office.  But otherwise, professional sports teams should stick to what they do best – sports.  And they should leave public policy to our elected legislators.

    Unfortunately, the executive director of the Major League Baseball Players union appears to be suggesting that the All-Star game, currently scheduled to be played this July in Atlanta, should be moved out of Georgia.  Why?  Because Georgia legislators recently passed a series of commonsense reforms to restore integrity to their elections.

    Predictably, the liberal media and other left-wing activists are jumping on the bandwagon, eager to punish Georgia and to demonstrate their growing power and control over society.  Now, there are calls to cancel the Masters Tournament, which has been hosted at the Augusta National Golf Club since 1934.

    As I have reported recently, the same is true of major corporations.  Not satisfied with producing good products and reaping billions of dollars of profits, Big Business increasingly wants to dictate our values too.

    I remember when Coca-Cola used to drive conservatives nuts with goofy ads about uniting the world in song.  Trust me, the world is troubled by more than just misunderstandings.  Singing Kumbaya around a Coke is not going to bring the world together.  But our corporations have gone from goofy ad campaigns to being woke totalitarians.

    This comes on the heels of the Chamber of Commerce and other major businesses trying to intimidate South Dakota from protecting young female athletes.

    Many major American corporations are comfortable doing business with communist China, and seemingly comfortable aiding and abetting the oppression of the Chinese people.  Now they are using their power to dictate everything from voting rules, religious liberty and school sports in this country, and in every case they are coming down on the side of the radical left.

    TAKE ACTION:  Contact the Major League Baseball Player association at 212-826-0808 or [email protected].  Tell them to stick to issues like to salary caps and getting baseball fans back into the stands.  Leave public policy to our public servants.
