Georgië Gov. Kemp slams Stacey Abrams 'biggest flip-flopper since John Kerry' on Georgia boycotts

Kemp vertel “Die storie” dat Abrams, D-Fulton, is appearing to have buyer’s remorse after watching Major League Bofbal (MLB) besluit om die winsgewende All-Star Game uit Cobb County te haal, and a flood of boycott promises from liberal voters and activists.

Verlede week, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred Jr., announced he would be pulling the All-Star Game out of the state in response to Kemp signing 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.

Atlanta’s Coca-Cola, led by CEO James Quincey, and Delta Airlinesthe state’s largest private employerled by CEO Edward Bastian, also slammed the bill, causing in turn conservative voters and activists to threaten their own boycotts of the corporate behemoths.

Kemp said Manfreddoesn’t know what the hell he’s talking aboutwhen it comes to the alleged racism and inequities of the new law.

“Jy weet, they’re referencing no specific points in the legislation. I’m glad to talk through any of those [CEO’s], Terloops. Jy weet, it’s the biggest lie that has been out there,” het Kemp gesê.

“Uiteraard [MLB] didn’t care what was said because they folded to the pressure. President Biden’s handlers couldn’t even get him a note card that told him what this bill did. Somebody is lying to you. It’s not me. You can read the bill and prove that out.In that regard, host Martha MacCallum pointed to comments from Abrams, a high-profile Democrat in the state:

“Swart, Latino, AAPI and Native American voters that are the most suppressed over [the new law] are the most likely to be hurt by potential boycotts of Georgia. To our friends, please do not boycott us. To my fellow Georgians, stay and fight, stay and vote,” Abrams said.

Kemp accused Abrams ofprofiting millions off of thispoliticking.

People need to follow the money and see why they’re doing this and so effective and, quite honestly why they’re working so hard at this. It has nothing to do with the merits of the bill. It’s political pressure from a minority group of people, the cancel culture. They’re shaking people down for a long time,” hy het gesê.

He added that it is also likely adistractionfor Democrats to use to keep Americansmind off of President Biden’s border crisis en die “unconstitutional power grabof H.R. 1, the 880-page election bill sponsored by Rep. John Sarbanes, D-Md.

I think just the contrary [of Abrams’ opmerkings],” het Kemp gesê. “I think people are ready to double down and get the truth out there.

“Jy weet, that is the biggest flip-flop since John Kerry I have ever seen. For someone that has been pressuring these corporations, pressuring Major League Baseball to now come out after the fact and say don’t boycott? People are getting screwed in this, Martha.

Kerry, Biden’s climate ‘czarand the Democrats’ 2004 presidentskandidaat, was accused of being aflip-flopperon almost every major issue from the economy to the Iraq War during his campaign against President Bush.

Kemp said that the Democratsnow-successful calls for boycotts and relocations are hurting “hardwerkend” “small business people in Cobb Countyand the Atlanta areaas the All-Star Game was supposed to be played at the home of the Atlanta Braves.

He said baseball fans and youth that dream of playing major league sports will also be hurt because the games are beingpoliticized.

People should be scared to death that it’s going to come to their neighborhood, to their state, to their ball game, to their college, to their business,”

In response to MLB’s pull-out from Atlanta, several other cities are now vying to be Manfred’s chosen replacement.

Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., is urging the MLB to move the game to his state, as the New York Mets have a stadium in Flushing, N.Y., and the Yankees in the South Bronx.
