Major League Baseball (MLB) has decided to move their 2021 All-Star Game to Denver, Colorado, after choosing to boycott Georgia for passing an election security law, which included a provision requiring voters to include a driver’s license number when voting by mail.
“Coors Field in Denver has been chosen to host this year’s All-Star Game,” ESPN reported. “It will mark the second time the homer-friendly home of the Colorado Rockies will host the Midsummer Classic. The American League beat the National League 13-8 at Coors in 1998.”
The boycott was a result of the Leftist narrative that Georgia’s new voter ID law is racist. However, Colorado already has voter ID laws and is less diverse than Georgia. The Colorado Secretary of State’s website states “All voters who vote at the polls must provide identification. If you are voting by mail for the first time, you may also need to provide a photocopy of your identification when you return your mail ballot.”
So, the MLB has decided to take their business to Denver, Colorado, which is 10% black, from Atlanta, Georgia, which is 52% black, in an effort to fight the “racist” voter ID laws that exist in both states.
This decision could be a nice case study demonstrating the Left’s commitment to their narrative over the facts. It’s a reminder that the Left chooses, as Oprah Winfrey put it, “your truth” over the truth. An idea promoted by President Joe Biden, probably accidentally, when he told Iowans “we choose truth over facts.”
