Ted Cruz Says MLB Moving All-Star Game To Denver ‘Makes No Sense’

Major League Baseball moved this year’s All-Star Game to the residence of the Colorado Rockies, Coors Field, following the passage of brand-new ballot legislations in Georgia in late March. The choice from MLB was consulted with reaction from Republicans consisting of Texas Gov.

Greg Abbott, who declined to throw out the initial pitch at the Rangers residence opener due to what he called a “incorrect story” from the organization. One of the legislators from Abbott’s state, Sen. Ted Cruz, aired his annoyance with the carry on Fox News on Wednesday.

In a section labelled “The Rise of Woke Corporatism”, Cruz gave a prolonged feedback to what he views is the ongoing bowing of CEOs to what he termed the “woke left.” In his feedback, Cruz indicated the distinction in demographics in between Denver and Atlanta as proof of the what he says is the absurdity of MLB’s reasoning.

” We saw Delta Air Lines do this and also give in Atlanta in such a way that was disgraceful. We saw Coca Cola do it. We saw, I think most disturbingly, Major League Baseball, tug the All-Star game out of Atlanta and also move it to Denver. I need to state it truly does illustrate how silly and inapplicable to compound these actions are,” Cruz claimed. “Atlanta is 51% African American, they relocate to Denver, a city that is 9% African American, due to the fact that they’re such woke social justice warriors that they’re mosting likely to take $100 million out of the pockets of the African American small companies and workers in Atlanta. It makes no sense. It’s dangerous and I do think there is a strong backlash that is building.”

Truist Park, the house of the Braves and also initial host to this year’s game, is located in Cobb County regarding 14 miles beyond midtown Atlanta. In the most current demographics information, Cobb County was discovered to be 62.4 White as well as 28.8 percent Black.

In its statement introducing the action, MLB said that the reason it had chosen to eliminate the game from Georgia is due to the fact that the new voting legislations were as well limiting and in opposition to what the organization stands for.

” Major League Baseball basically sustains voting legal rights for all Americans and also opposes limitations to the ballot box. In 2020, MLB ended up being the very first professional sports organization to sign up with the non-partisan Civic Alliance to aid construct a future in which every person takes part in shaping the United States. We proudly used our platform to urge baseball followers and also areas throughout our country to execute their civic task and also actively take part in the voting process. Fair accessibility to voting continues to have our game’s undeviating assistance.”

Democrats as well as voting rights teams have said that the Georgia legislation will certainly “overmuch disenfranchise voters of shade.” Head of state Joe Biden called the regulation “shocking” and also “a wrong” and also prompted Congress to pass its own regulation to bolster ballot rights across the country in response.
