Psaki attempts to downplay Biden’s role in Georgia MLB boycott fallout

On Monday White House press secretary Jen Psaki sought to downplay President Joe Biden’s support of Major League Baseball’s (MLB) decision to move the All-Star Game and Draft from Georgia over its recent election integrity law.

President Biden told ESPN on Wednesday, “The very people who were victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports, and it’s just not right.”

He added, “This is Jim Crow on steroids what they’re doing in Georgia and 40 other states. What’s it all about?… This is all about keeping working folks that I grew up with from being able to vote.”

Last Friday, the MLB announced their decision to move the All-Star Game and Draft. The move led to criticism from conservatives.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) said in a statement, “This attack on our state is the direct result of repeated lies from Joe Biden and Stacey Abrams about a bill that expands access to the ballot box and ensures the integrity of our elections. I will not back down.”

Psaki’s answers struggled to account for Biden’s role in the situation.

“He was not dictating for what Major League Baseball should do, that they should — dictating they should move the All-Star game,” she said. “That was their decision, they made that decision, and as he stated earlier he certainly supports that.”

Biden clearly supported the change, regardless of Psaki’s reluctance to admit his agreement. The president’s appearance on ESPN noted exactly where he stood regarding the Georgia election law.

““This is Jim Crow on steroids what they’re doing in Georgia and 40 other states. What’s it all about?… This is all about keeping working folks that I grew up with from being able to vote.”
First of all “Jim Crow” represented the Democratic platform of hate and suppression of blacks since the end of the civil war and basically evolved into lying and manipulation of propaganda to get blacks to support the very institution that hated, suppressed and repressed in order the elite whites to survive and flourish. President LBJ one of the most powerful racist in the world signed the Civil Rights Act of 64 in order for his Democratic party to survive. LBJ basically told his fellow Democrat racists that they better get on board because it was necessary to lie to get “negros” (LBJ’s words) to vote Democrat for the next “100 years.”

It was Biden and Abrams encouragement that has led the MLB to their decision, and Abrams is a complete racist cow who should be ousted from office because all she has done since in office is spew HATE. Biden is feeding into it because of his fear of Black Lives Matters leaders. HE IS NOTHING BUT A COWARD and needs to go along with that Witch Harris.

Do you even have a clue what your talking about, the democrats like you are the cancel culture but as you are one of the cancel culture fools you have no idea what it means. Trump and his supporters love this country we don’t go around and tear down monuments because we aren’t butt hurt wimps like the cancel culture morons. We believe in fair elections not fraudulent ones like the last one where more people voted than registered in several blue states. Georgia’s new election laws are the way elections should be run not like democrat ones where fraud runs rampant.

rb -Cancel culture is not Republican. It is BLM, ANTIFA and leftist Democrats. Someone has brainwashed you, if you ever had any intelligence. I agree with our other comment that major league baseball, as a private business, has the right to play where it wants to play. However, it exemption from the anti-trust laws should be removed so that it has to compete just like anyone else has to do.

You don’t know anything about the first amendment you just know how to lie like a good commie democrat. The democrats are the ones who put so many restrictions and taxes on businesses big and small and sent them to foreign countries, Trump lifted restrictions put on by obama and brought businesses back o America. So its the democrats who destroy the economy and businesses. Biden has already destroyed the energy business, he has already caused Ford motors to decide to move back to Mexico because of his stupidity. Get your head out of the so called woke cultures behind and open your eyes and ears listen to the truth not lie after lie that comes out of the democrat controlled media. Democrats are the ones against the first amendment they are against the constitution and they are failures because they fail their oaths of office which should disqualify every damned one of them from office.

The only crow is Old Crow Biden! I live in Georgia, the only thing this new law does is make sure you only vote one time and that you actually live in Georgia. It prevents someone from voting multiple times and going to another poll place and voting again. Ever since I’ve been voting (I’m 65) I’ve had to show ID and have my signature match my ID. That’s a whole lot of years and I’ve never complained, not once! The great thing about it is I’d you DO NOT have an ID, Georgia will GIVE YOU ONE FOR FREE, so there is no reason that someone can not vote. We have plenty of early voting, regular voting and even some weekend voting…still no reason that you can’t vote. Why they are complaining about is is it makes it harder for Stacy Abrams to call people to Georgia to vote in our election & also you can’t vote more than once. One person, one vote!

Americans, there are two questions we all need an answer to. The first is who is running this country? We all know it isn’t Braindead Biden. The second may be the most important we ever ask. Why are Americans not being told about “The Great Reset” that is being forced on them. This is the greatest threat to the country and the world and no one is talking about it. Americans look up “The Truth About The Great Reset” and find out what is really going on. Look up “John Kerry: American voters chose “Great Reset” over nationalism”. This is what Kerry is telling the world.
Follow that up with “Kerry:Biden will impose the great reset” and you will then understand what is really going on in this country. Everyone has failed to tell Americans the truth and it disgusts me. The truth is out there in volumes if you want to know it. This is the truth and it needs to be exposed.

IT’S TIME TO IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

Can you continue to tolerate gasoline prices, product prices all going up, the WH being run by Harris, Pelosi and Schumer? Literally destroying our country, allowing thousands upon thousands of illegals into our country bringing in God knows what diseases?

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!
