DeSantis Warns of Consequences for Companies’ ‘Wokeness’ Pandering to Dems Misleading Voting Laws Rhetoric

Major League Baseball moved the All-Star game from Atlanta, Georgia because of their new voting laws to Denver, Colorado, where they have virtually the same laws the MLB pretended to so valiantly stand up against. The nonsensical behavior doesn’t end there.

Hundreds of major companies and corporate leaders have publicly expressed opposition to new voting laws, despite likely having zero idea of details in current laws versus proposed laws. Just last week, hundreds of companies signed a letter opposing “discriminatory legislation” claiming it makes it harder for individuals to vote.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis spoke on Fox News’s Sunday Morning Futures with host Maria Bartiromo where he addressed the new movement by corporations and hinted that some retaliation could be expected.

“I guess they have the right to do what they want, but if you’re gonna stick your beak into issues that don’t directly concern you, then I think elected officials are then gonna stick their beak into issues that may not concern them,” said DeSantis when asked about businesses protesting against Georgia’s recently passed laws.

DeSantis called out the vulnerability when it comes to companies attempting to legislate morality. “What about all the other jurisdictions that you’re in that have, quote, ‘more restrictive laws’ added DeSantis. “What about the fact that you’re doing business with the Communist Party of China, the fact that you’ve done business with the Castro regime in Cuba?” the governor questioned.

Then came DeSantis’ warning that “corporate America, by trying to genuflect to this wokeness…they’re going to tie themselves in knots trying to please the extreme left.” Companies have fallen prey to the claims by Democrats and President Joe Biden himself that the new Georgia law is an update on Jim Crow laws designed to prevent African Americans from voting.

    I have always been a supporter of the St Louis Cardinals. My wife and I normally attend at least two games each year. This year because of the MLB All Star game move, we will not attend any games. More than one can play their game. These corporate clowns need to remember 75 million people voted for Trump. The Georgia voting laws did nothing to restrict voting for anyone. It did get dead people off the rolls who vote Democrat during elections.

      AMEN TO THAT!! Brother Biden will stand for whatever his democratic politicians in the White House tells him to do. We need voter ID in every state to keep a fair and legal election.
      Florida Governor, Georgia Governor and every Governor in every state with Voter ID laws need to be praised. MLB should be ashamed for moving the All Starr games out of Georgia. Taking away millions and setting the stage for many businesses to suffer because of the decision that was made. I do not recognize our country anymore and this is just the beginning!

Shaq Denounces ‘Celebrity-Ness’ Says They are ‘Out of Their Freaking Mind’

Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one

In an interview with the New York Post, basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one. “I denounce my celebrity-ness today. I’m done with it” O’Neal told the Post while discussing his new Kellogg’s deal.

“Celebrities are crazy. I don’t want to be in that category. They are. They’re going freaking insane. Don’t call me that anymore” said O’Neal. “These people are out of their freaking mind with how they treat people, what they do, what they say. That’s never been me. I never want to be looked at like that.”

O’Neal’s Kellogg’s deal consists of his own new Frosted Flakes cereal, Crispy Cinnamon Basketballs, and partnership with Mission Tiger, which will help over 60,000 middle-schoolers.

“The Mission Tiger program pledged to purchase new sports equipment, including uniforms, for students across the U.S. The Schools involved in the mission will take place in the six cities where O’Neal played over 19 seasons – Boston, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando and Phoenix” reports The Post.

O’Neal wants to be remembered for his kindness, says the 49-year-old who grew up poor in New Jersey and says he tries to do random acts of kindness at least twice per week.

Everyone gets stereotyped but celebrities get stereotyped because most of them are “our of their damn mind.” He said. “I’m a regular person that listened, that followed their dreams, made it. But just because I made it don’t mean I’m bigger than you. Just because I made it don’t mean I’m smarter than you. Just cause I have more money than you don’t mean that I’m better than you.”

 I’ve never been that way and I never will be that way. So I don’t want to be in that category of people. When they talk about Shaq, what do you say? ‘He’s a nice guy.’ Because what else can you be? You’re either nice or you’re the A-word, and I definitely won’t be looked at as the A-word,” he said.

“I want people to say, ‘Bro, he’s nice. He didn’t have an entourage. His people didn’t take my phone because I took a picture and threw it.’”

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
