Baseball went from being America's sport to America's joke. The MLB just went full WOKE and is now moving the all-star game out of Atlanta because they're mad about some random law in Georgia.
If this isn't the stupidest thing you've heard today, then I don't know what is.
Major League Baseball announced Friday that it is moving the 2021 All-Star Game and 2021 draft out of Atlanta in protest of a new Georgia law that has raised concerns about its potential to disproportionately disenfranchise minority voters.
In a statement, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said the league is "finalizing a new host city and details about these events will be announced shortly."
A source told ESPN that the All-Star Game is still planned for Los Angeles in 2022 and won't be moved up to fill the void this summer.

"Over the last week, we have engaged in thoughtful conversations with Clubs, former and current players, the Players Association, and The Players Alliance, among others, to listen to their views," Manfred said as part of his statement. "I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year's All-Star Game and MLB Draft.
"Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box. In 2020, MLB became the first professional sports league to join the non-partisan Civic Alliance to help build a future in which everyone participates in shaping the United States. We proudly used our platform to encourage baseball fans and communities throughout our country to perform their civic duty and actively participate in the voting process. Fair access to voting continues to have our game's unwavering support."
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed into law last week a sweeping, Republican-sponsored bill that includes new restrictions on voting by mail and greater legislative control over how elections are run. The bill, which also famously prohibits the distribution of food and water for voters waiting in line, was signed into law on March 25, with protestors outside the Capitol calling it "Jim Crow 2.0."
This is absolute HORSE SHIT! People in sports shouldn't even be talking about politics. WTF is wrong with these people?
How many baseball fans in Georgia were excited to have a chance to see the all-star game up close and personal and now it's taken away from them because some morons in sports don't like a particular law?
The law prohibiting food and water in line is definitely one of the stupidest things we have ever seen, but does that mean you move a major league all-star game out of town over it?
NO IT DOES NOT!!
Governor Kemp is an idiot - we all know that.
But two wrongs don't make a right, so now we have a dumb law that says you can't sip some water in line while you're voting, and now we have no all-star game in Atlanta.
You know what I say to this?
YOU'RE ALL IDIOTS!! From the WOKE assclowns to the morons making stupid laws.
Is there anyone smart making decisions anymore?
FFS!!!! LEAVE SPORTS OUT OF POLITICS!
Should players stand for the Flag
