Trump Urges People To Boycott ‘Woke’ Companies As They ‘Cave In’ To Demands Of Radical Left
Former President Donald Trump called on the public to hit back at companies and organizations that are caving in to the demands of the radical left by boycotting them.
His remarks came after Major League Baseball (MLB) announced that it was moving the All Star Game and Draft out of Atlanta in Georgia, following the vote of the state legislature to enact a sweeping new law meant to increase election security and address issues that were raised during the2020 election.
Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines and Coca-Cola also earlier blasted the democratically-elected Georgia officials’ vote on election procedure amendments.
“For years the Radical Left Democrats have played dirty by boycotting products when anything from that company is done or stated in any way that offends them,” former President Trump said in a statement.
“It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back — we have more people than they do — by far!”

Trump said GOP supporters should boycott these woke brands as they cave in to the demands of progressives which he said would end up “destroy[ing] the country.”
“Boycott Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS, and Merck,” Trump said.
“Don’t go back to their products until they relent. We can play the game better than them.”
The former President said the radical left “boycotts and scares companies into submission” and that Americans must “never submit” and “never give up” otherwise “the radical left will destroy our country.”
MLB commissioner Robert Manfred announced Friday that the 2021 All-Star Game will no longer be held in Atlanta after the state decided to move along with the election modification bill which critics say will make it harder for underrepresented voters to exercise their right to vote — because it “opposes restrictions to the ballot box.”

Despite this, Georgia Gov. Brain Kemp said the Election Integrity Act of 2021 will take another step toward ensuring that elections in the state are “secure, accessible and fair.”
The new law requires that a drivers’ license or state ID number be given when voting via absentee ballot which is something that 74% of Georgians, including 63% of black Georgians, support.
The Washington Post noted that the changes to early voting in the state, according to experts, will result in “expand[ing] the opportunities to vote for most Georgians, not limit[ing] them.”
Despite the stern opposition from the professional baseball organization, Fox News reported that even the MLB requires a photo ID requirement of its own for fans picking up tickets at the stadium.
South Carolina Republican state Rep. Nancy Mace blasted MLB for its “hypocrisy.”
“Hey @MLB, this you?” Mace wrote as she attached a screenshot of baseball’s Will Call policy at mlb.com.

Last week, President Trump said: “Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter I.D., which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections.”
“Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening to Coke, Delta, and all!”
Democratic President Joe Biden has expressed “strong support” for MLB’s move claiming that the state will be “closing[ing] a polling place at 5 o’clock when working folks just get off.”
Today President Joe Biden said he would support the MLB moving the All-Star game from Georgia because of the controversial election bill that Kemp signed recently.

Nonetheless, last week, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki deflected questions on the US participation in the Olympics in Beijing following Biden’s logic on his support to MLB’s moving the All Star Game out of Georgia.
The reporter asked: “The President had voiced his support for MLB making a decision about the All-Star Game in Georgia. I’m wondering, when can we expect a final determination from the President about the United States participating in the Beijing Olympics, given that he said the Chinese President doesn’t have a democratic bone in his body?”
.@RealClearNews's @PhilipWegmann asks Jen Psaki if the Biden White House is so adamant about having MLB move its All-Star Game from Georgia because of the voting law, why aren't they calling for a boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing?!

Psaki responded: “Well, I think the US Olympic Committee would play a big role in—.”
The reporter retorted: “But he’s weighed in on Major League Baseball here in the United States.”
To which Psaki falsely answered: “He actually didn’t. I think, I don’t know if you heard the, the answer, the question and the answer that happened a few minutes ago where we addressed this, and I answered the question. And I gave you a little more context, but maybe you weren’t paying attention to that part.”
