After Pushing MLB To Boycott Georgia, Biden Flips When Asked About Masters Golf Event

In the Democratic view, the controversial law is akin to the codified racism of the Old South because it requires voter ID for absentee ballots and tries to rectify electioneering abuses (by the Democrats, if you had to ask) by banning the distribution of food and water in voting lines.

Leaving aside the absurdity of this somehow being akin to Jim Crow, let’s assume for a second that President Joe Biden believes his own rhetoric. Should major sporting events pull out of Georgia until the state caves?

Last week, Biden said yes — at least when it came to the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, which was then scheduled for July at Truist Park, the home stadium of the Atlanta Braves.

“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them doing that,” Biden said in an interview with ESPN.

“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,” he added. “This is Jim Crow on steroids … what they’re doing in Georgia.”
