Abrams and Ossoff Panic at Ridiculous Idea of Leftist Corporations Boycotting Georgia, But MTG Cheers

Stacey Abrams and Jon Ossoff are panicking and furious that ‘woke’ corporations are taking their money elsewhere after planned election integrity reforms in Georgia. Fox News reported on Ossoff:

Sen. Jon Ossoff, D-Ga., said he won’t support moving Major League Baseball’s All-Star game out of Georgia in protest of the state’s new divisive voting law. 

Ossoff’s stance is a break from President Biden, who told ESPN on Wednesday he would “strongly support” baseball players who want to move the July game from Atlanta’s Truist Park to another state to boycott the election law that Gov. Brian Kemp, a Republican, enacted last week.

“I absolutely oppose and reject any notion of boycotting Georgia,” Ossoff said. “Georgia welcomes business, investment, jobs, opportunity, and events. In fact, economic growth is driving much of the political progress we have seen here. Georgia welcomes the world’s business. Corporations disgusted like we are with the disgraceful Voter Suppression bill should stop any financial support to Georgia’s Republican Party, which is abusing its power to make it harder for Americans to vote.”

Jake Tapper tweeted:

Worth noting that @staceyabrams said yesterday she opposed boycotting Georgia. “Please do not boycott us,” she said.

U.S. House Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene had this to add:

“Good. Now take the rest of woke progressive Democrat bullies like Hollywood and Stacey Abrams with you. Georgia will NOT apologize for passing strong election reform laws that require ID to vote, just like @Delta requires ID to fly. @MLB just stick to baseball.”

Curtis Houck tweeted a video of Joe Biden’s White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki:

“.@RealClearNews‘s @PhilipWegmann asks Jen Psaki if the Biden White House is so adamant about having MLB move its All-Star Game from Georgia because of the voting law, why aren’t they calling for a boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing?! Psaki did NOT like this question.”

Stacey Abrams put forth mixed messages:

“Disappointed @MLB will move the All-Star Game, but proud of their stance on voting rights. GA GOP traded economic opportunity for suppression. On behalf of PoC targeted by #SB202 to lose votes + now wages, I urge events & productions to come & speak out or stay & fight. #gapol

“Thank you to these 193 companies for your leadership in recognizing that voter suppression is bad for democracy and bad for workers. Corporate voices urging legislators to defeat legislation in Texas and other states is vital.”

Republicans are pushing back, threatening to take tax breaks away from Delta Airlines. There has been talk of action against the MLB as well. Time will tell who wins this game of ‘woke’ chicken.
