Democrats barely won Georgia in 2020. In sane times, a party that barely wins a state for the first time would do everything it can to shore up (fortify?) its margin of victory, hoping for bigger future wins.
Democrats are doing the exact opposite. They are doing everything they can to alienate the state by preventing members of their most loyal constituency from making money off the All Star game.
I guess that kind of craziness isn’t surprising in an era where mayors let their own cities burn, thinking it will enhance their resumes. Or a time when large companies openly alienate half of their customers. The Democrats’ attitude toward Georgia would seem to fit with the other craziness.
There might be a less crazy reason for the Democrats’ behavior: Maybe they believe they can’t win Georgia again. Why? Voter ID and other fraud prevention measures. If true, the Democrats are implicitly making one heck of an admission.
Take Florida for example, That state turned from purple to red after it cleaned up its vote-counting process. Coincidence?
The Democrats are very good at the game of politics. It’s hard to believe they would throw away a hard-won state just to burnish their woke credentials. Unless they think the state is already gone.
If Georgia is already lost to the Democrats, they might as well heap abuse on it as an example to intimidate other states considering similar reforms.Published in
