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!

Real estate websites Redfin, Realtor.com will no longer display crime data ‘due to racial bias concerns’

The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens

The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens. Two popular homebuying websites, Zillow and Redfin, are the latest companies to kowtow to a weak and sensitive culture.

Redfin and Realtor.com both “put forth announcements on the same day back in December that their sites will no longer display or gather any crime data for the neighborhoods covered within them due to racial bias concerns” reports Steadfastandloyal.com.

In a blog post, CEO of Realtor.com David Doctorow wrote the company is attempting to “break down those hurdles” of discrimination in homeownership. “For example, earlier this month, we removed the crime map layer from all search results on Realtor.com to rethink the safety information we share on Realtor.com and how we can best integrate it as part of a consumer’s home search experience,” stated Doctorow.

“In the weeks and months ahead, we plan to examine closely what neighborhood safety means for buyers and renters who use our site so we can reimagine how we integrate safety data on Realtor.com. Our goal is to ensure we are providing consumers with the most valuable, fair and accurate neighborhood data so they can make informed decisions about where they want to rent or purchase their next home,” added Doctorow.

In a blog post on the same day, the chief growth officer for Redfin, Christian Taubman, wrote Redfin was entirely aware that people want to know “whether they’ll feel safe in a given home or neighborhood,” but “the data available don’t allow us to speak accurately to that question, and given the long history of redlining and racist housing covenants in the United States there’s too great a risk of this inaccuracy reinforcing racial bias.”

“We believe that Redfin–and all real estate sites–should not show neighborhood crime data,” Taubman stated.

Taubman went on to inaccuracies of crime reporting as an excuse for not adding the information to its website. “In the 2019 survey, people reporting crimes were more likely to describe their offender as young, male, and Black than would be expected given the representation of those groups in the population,” he said.

Taubman concluded, “in this case we’re confident that the crime data that are available today ought not to be on Redfin or any other real estate site.”

Chicago 911 Dispatcher says ‘All Hell Has Broken Loose’ Crime is ‘Nonstop’

The liberal run city of Chicago is in a downward spiral suffocated by crime. Few understand what is happening better than 911 dispatchers who have the impossible task of listening to people suffer through crimes, yet unable to help them due to liberal policies creating a violent crime epidemic and police shortage.

Keith Thornton posted a video to Facebook last week saying Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is “a disgrace.” Thornton took it upon himself to warn citizens about which Chicago police district is unavailable due to the staffing shortages.

In an interview with Fox & Friends Thornton said that “all hell has broken loose” in Chicago while local officials have failed to act. “It’s been shenanigans, and it’s just nonstop, day after day. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning time, evening time, whatever –at all hours of the day, there is a massive amount of crime taking place within the city of Chicago.”

“When I’m getting text messages from officers telling me that they’re scared and afraid for their safety because they’re working by themselves, and then the beat next to them would normally back them up, they’re not even there because the cars are down. That’s a problem. It’s a safety concern” Thornton said in an interview with Chicago’s WLS-TV.

Chicago Police Department data shows homicides, shootings, thefts and criminal sexual assaults are all up drastically compared to last year. Lightfoot has not only been a proponent of defunding the police, she also behaved viciously towards law enforcement.

After Chicago Police Officer Ella French was killed during a routine traffic stop, Lightfoot blamed “guns and the violence they bring” for her death. When Lightfoot visited French’s partner who was wounded and fighting for his life at the time at the hospital, dozens of officers at the hospital turned their back on the mayor.
