Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren ripped Major League Baseball and Delta
Airlines for what she considered dishonest outrage over Georgia's new
election law.

The law, which prohibits electioneering within several dozen feet of a
poll, expands some early voting and institutes stronger identification
requirements for Georgians seeking to vote absentee, caused a firestorm
after being signed by Gov. Brian Kemp last week.

Delta Airlines and the MLB were two of the loudest critcs, with Delta CEO
Edward Bastian calling the law "undemocratic" and MLB Commissioner Rob
Manfred Jr. making the decision to pull the All-Star Game out of the
Braves' stadium in Cobb County, Ga.

Lahren called Manfred's response a "bogus statement" and a "worthless
virtue signal" that falsely claimed state lawmakers were undermining
minorities.

"The MLB is moving the All-Star game out of Atlanta to protest Georgia’s
voter ID law, yet they still require picture IDs to pick up tickets at
Will Call -- strange."

She added that the Atlanta Braves themselves were opposed to the sudden
boycott of the state by the MLB, understanding its wave of negative
economic effects to their neighbors and businesses.

Pointing to the statement put out by the MLB Players Alliance, Lahren said
that it "incorrectly, misleadingly and falsely claim[s] the new Georgia
law disenfranchise the Black community."

"Let’s think about that for a moment, the part of the Georgia voting law
that upsets these woke warriors the most is that voters will have to show
a valid ID to vote, vote absentee or vote my mail."

The law states: "In order to confirm the identity of the voter, such form
shall require the elector to provide his or her name, date of birth,
address as registered, address where the elector wishes the ballot to be
mailed, and the number of his or her Georgia driver’s license or
identification card issued."

Lahren went on to suggest that Manfred and Bastian were misinterpreting
what is actually racist about the situation:

"Proving you are who you say you are is somehow racist?" she asked
rhetorically. "I’d say assuming Black Americans are incapable of getting
and presenting a valid driver’s license or ID card is actually the racist
part of this whole thing."

"It’s pretty rich of Delta Airlines to take this stance given the fact we
must all show our IDs to board a plane and travel -- does that make Delta
racist?"

"Does that mean Delta and other airlines are trying to keep Black
passengers off their planes? By their logic, yeah I’d say so."

Lahren noted that the MLB "Players Alliance," a union of more than 100
Black ballplayers, said the law was based on "falsehoods" and
"disenfranchises the Black community."

SIMILAR TO GEORGIA'S

"The woke mob has long ruined football and basketball but now even
America’s greatest pastime, baseball, has been infected with the disease
that is liberalism," she said.

"Major League Baseball has decided to move this year’s All-Star Game out
of Atlanta due to Georgia’s new 'voter suppression' law, and by
'suppression' they mean the rules that require voters to prove they are
who they say they are, are indeed eligible to vote, and only vote once."

"How oppressive," she added sarcastically.

"Something tells me it’s not the ID that’s the problem here. No, it’s the
closed door to dead, double and illegal voting and that’s why the Left is
so ticked off by this. They got their free for all in 2020 using COVID as
an excuse and they want to do everything in their power—their new power—to
codify and keep it that way."

She said that the underlying truth about the outcry from the left and
their aligned corporations are that laws like Kemp's make it harder for
Democrats to find "loopholes to cheat to win" elections.
