Obama Applauds MLB for Moving All-Star Game – The Red Alert News

Obama Applauds MLB for Moving All-Star Game

Historically, former presidents shy away from making public statements about controversial events that take place after their presidencies have concluded. However, Barack Obama has been quite vocal recently.

*****

Former President Barack Obama on Saturday celebrated Major League Baseball (MLB) for its decision to move the All-Star game out of Atlanta after the Georgia legislature passed legislation on election integrity,” according to Breitbart. [emphasis added]

Obama tweeted, ‘Congratulations to the MLB for taking a stand on behalf of voting rights for all citizens. There’s no better way for American’s pastime to honor the great Hank Aaron, who always led by example.’

Hank Aaron, nicknamed “Hammerin’ Hank,” was a home-run-hitting baseball great who played 23 seasons in the Majors; 21 of them for the Atlanta Braves. He was also known for his outspokenness against racism in the MLB, and he broke racial barriers throughout his career.

“The decision to relocate the game came after the Georgia legislature passed legislation aimed at strengthening election integrity.”

For more on this story, go to Breitbart.

Please share your thoughts in the comment section. Does Obama’s opinion on Major League Baseball’s decision to move the All-Star Game out of Atlanta, Georgia because the Georgia government passed a new voting rights law influence your thinking one way or the other?

    Obama is a racist idiot, Georgia voter integrity law is not as strict as the state they are moving the game to. You have to show ID to pick up tickets on hold at box offices, to board a plane, to buy alcohol, and 100s of other things, why is having to show an ID to vote considered racist, Obama, like all liberals is stupid and ignorant.

  2. Jack Spring says:

    Djumbo ears needs to get off the stage and not be allowed to hide in the wings. It appears that he enjoys turmoil and promoting racism. I can’t recall any other former president running his mouth the way this one is. If Biden wants to promote ‘unity’, then he needs to get away from this horses a$s.

    Now they are coming up with vaccination Passports Fake President fake virus fake vaccine 100 per cent real mark of the beast and it is going global I pray I am wrong but what a perfect way to force people to do what you want also you will need the vaccine Passport to get groceries just like you have to wear a worthless mask

  4. David Smith says:

    Mr. Civil Man please sir in your wisdom explain to me what you can do in this country without a valid ID except go bowling maybe??? As for restrictive voting my dear man If you are not smart enough to get an ID then you sure as hell should not vote You need an ID for everything else no ID you don’t drive you can’t fly you can’t buy a car and the list goes on my friend all voter ID does is make it harder for the Democrats to rig the elections but dad people and Illegals will always vote and get fake ID’s Believe me I know I had to pay for a fake ID for my mother when some crack head like Hunter Biden broke into the house after I left for work cost me 50 dollars I am just glad he didn’t kill her.

  5. Robert says:

    Nobody gives a tinkers damn about what Obummer thinks!

  6. John Deck says:

    Mr. President, apparently you have forgotten American History, we fought the Civil War over STATES RIGHTS. Now you need to apologies to the People of the State of Georga and the American People. You were elected by the people, to MANAGE NOT dictate. You have issued to many Executive Orders.

    Be the Gentleman we all know you can be an Apologies

    • Terrie Wyatt says:

      He’s not a gentleman and he has to stop referring to himself as president, but then again he’s running things from behind the curtain.

  7. John says:

    Obama who is the worst President this Country has ever had needs to Applaud Georgia on Requiring ID to Vote all States should require Photo ID this will ensure integrity at the Polls. How dare the Pathetic MLB make local business owners Suffer by pulling the Game. Shame on them

    • Robert says:

      Obummer has LOST the title of “Worst President” Xiden took it from him! When someone asks, “How stupid are you”? Democraps take it as a challenge!

  8. Chris says:

    Time for BARRACK OBAMA to just shut his big fat mouth and retire to his luxurious life of paid tax payer dollars. Your washed up Obama! You have no voice. Good riddence! Take Hillary with you. Don’t let the door slap you on the ass.

    • Terry Beck says:

      I think Obama has no business sticking his nose into this. It’s bad enough that we had to suffer with his bullshit for 8 long years. He needs to just fade away!!

      • Civil Man says:

        “Name Calling” and unfairly critizeing another because they disagree with you does nothing to support your argument nor does it promote civil discussion.

        It’s called “Free Speech”. Obama is entitled to his opinion as you are entitled to yours. This principle is enshrined in the constitution of the United States. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” There is nothing in the constitution that says you have to agree with another citizen. I might add that those to the left and right of the political spectrum have far more points upon which they would agree, than which they disagree.

        HOWEVER If you want to have a real discussion, then present the facts and then argue about why your position has merit. It’s called “debate”. Private businesses like the MLB may choose to make decisions based on political realities (such as GA restrictive voting legislation) to express their corporate political opinion.

        So tell us “WHY SHOULD THE MLB STAY IN GA?”

        But No Name Calling. OK?

        • W says:

          So you preach that you wish to have an honest discussion about this, but you believe that what MLB did the correct thing? Why is it acceptable for a business to politically extort states into complying with those who have not taken the time to THOROUGHLY review the law Georgia passed. It IS NOT racist (the abused battle cry of the demoscum and their propaganda puppet talking heads)in that it DOES NOT require only minorities to show identification, it requires EVERY LEGAL VOTER to show ID. It also extends the hours of voting to allow for citizens to get to the INCREASED polling places. That is NOT RACIST! It IS the right thing to do to bring integrity back into our election process. I challenge you to find, with specificity, any part of this law which is in any way even remotely racist as the propaganda machine has espoused.

          As for Bathhouse Barry, he is openly spewing the party mantra because they (the dems, their elites and the propaganda) don’t want the gullible masses to find out the REAL TRUTH! Please THOROUGHLY review the statute before commenting or supporting another lying political hack or the propaganda machine.

  9. Scott J says:

    I wish the entire obama family the worst, as that is what they wish to us.

  10. Robert Fuller says:

    Mhy experience tells me that if Obama says it, it isn’t true. Kind of like the old saying, “If his lips are moving, he’s lying!”

  11. David says:

    I lost money when he took the oath I was sure some loyal American was going to separate his eyes Did they ever do a check on Michelle to see if she was a female?? I saw a site that showed his birth certificate from Hawaii was fake it had no state seal on it But a birth certificate that they said had his real name and country was shown and they said that country is very serious about birth certificates serious jail time for forgeries But you can all see his real colors now that he is out for his third term He hates this country. He is a sad excuse for a partial black man.

    • Nadine Meade says:

      AMEN! HE WAS NEVER QUALIFIED TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! HE IS A FRAUD…..HE HAS NEVER BEEN MY PRESIDENT. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE BECOME LIKE SHEEP LED TO SLAUGHTER BY A PERSON CONTROLLED BY ANOTHER COUNTRY. HE FOUND A “PARTNER” THAT AGREES WITH HIM. OBAMA AND MICHELLE HATE THIS COUNTRY…EXCEPT FOR THE WEALTH THEY HAVE OBTAINED THROUGH THEIR CONIVING MANEUVERS. ONE OF MY PRAYERS IS: THEY WOULD BE CAUSED TO BE BANNED FROM THE USA. WE HAVE MANY PEOPLE OF BLACK ORIGIN THAT REALLY LOVE THIS COUNTRY AND COULD HAVE BEEN GREAT PRESIDENTS.OBAMA’S PLANS HAVE NOT BEEN FOR AMERICA EVER…JUST BE A STAGE LOVER AND WANT OF POWER…MICHELLE THE SAME…..GOOD RIDDANCE IF WE EVER CAN???

  12. Bill Parry says:

    I have a lot of respect for Hank Aaron and zero for Barack Obama. It is unfortunate he was our first black president. There are so many intelligent honest black Americans that would have been better.

  13. Robert Spofford says:

    I was glad to see O”Bummer leave office. Unfortunately, his shadow – ByteMe- is carrying along the same unpopular path. Moving BIG BUCKS out of Georgia? What an idiot. That bird brained idea caused by ByteMe’s
    uninformed view of voting rules makes him look like an idiot. Not food to voters in line. GOOD. Here’s a hotdog, vote for Joe? Gee, show ID proving you are a registrated voter? Good. No ID,no vote. Now that’s American.

    • Rae Trisciuzzi says:

      Exactly. They make it sound like black people don’t know how to get an ID. They aren’t stupid, they know if they need it they can get it.

  14. Donald Cook says:

    His lips move, but he say’s NOTHING. He needs to go back to his Home Land.

  15. BelleJeans says:

    COMMIE OBAMMIE SHOULD FACE PROSECUTION FOR BEING A TRAITOR TO THE CONSTITUTION AND ALL THINGS AMERICAN…

  16. R Schulz says:

    Obama needs to stay out of the public. His two terms are over and he has no business staying in the daily news. He needs to go to one of his homes Fay away from the public.

  17. DeeJay says:

    Who cares what Obama thinks or says?

  18. Val Hicks says:

    A DOUCHE then and A DOUCHE now STFU Nobama

  19. John says:

    How long did it take Barack to eliminate ISIS? He Never did. He allowed to rape, pillage, plunder, and kill at will!

    How long did it take Donald Trump?

    One Week!

    So why should his opinion even count?

    Just shut up Barack and keep on collecting $ for doing nothing more than instigating racism! We were fine until you showed up and literally divided the country!

  20. Clay Dowell says:

    MLB has really shown how stupid they can be. The voter changed in Georgia are really for the betterment of voting integrity. It has now gotten to the point of “If you offend me, you must be a racist.” Congratulations MLB, you have now joined the NFL in being added to another sport I can live without watching.

  21. John says:

    Who loses jobs and $$$?

    Georgia! That’s who!

    Thanks Barack!

    • JOHN CAROLLA says:

      The inner city of Atlanta is predominantly black. These are the people that Ojack a$$ has hurt. He still cares more about the democrap party than America and Americans.

      He will go down in history as the most divisive President to ever occupy the Whitehouse. But, it’s still early in the Biden Presidency. If Joe and the Ho’s history is any indication of their future performance, the title might be taken away.

  22. GK Massara says:

    Sorry, the choice is either: Really stupid Or Really evil.

  23. Who has suffered the most from the MLB team’s interference in Georgia politics by confusing politics with play? “Most of all, they punished the small businesses around the stadium, which were mostly owned by blacks. Yes, these people have suffered a lot, but now they will understand that FREEDOM is very expensive. Freedom does not come for free. For FREEDOM you have to pay and sometimes – even with your life! Obama, who ascended Olympus with the help of the affirmative action, will never understand this!

  24. Maggie says:

    when is Obama Muslim, thief, Traitor of Americans, will just disappear?! Looking forward to that day.

  25. John J says:

    Mickey Mantel is #1 no darkie can top him

  26. Willi Make-it says:

    Obama is nothing more than a lying queer who wants people to think he knows what he’s talking about. How much could that girly man know about baseball? He’s criminal and should be in prison for what he did to this country, not making comments about anything other than the soap on the floor of the shower.

  27. Mikeyg819 says:

    Obama and the rest of the demonrats are all scumbags. The people of this country need to get rid of all the horrible scheming, conniving, greedy, selfish, disgraceful, dishonest, and lying demonrats. They don’t care about the people, only what they can do to benefit themselves. They are selling both the American People and the United States to China. And they are making themselves very rich beyond measure. Only we can stop them. The American People have the power to remove them from office. We need to act fast, before its too late.

  28. Jim Henner says:

    The former communist president we had should keep his racial orientated mouth shut. He should also get his baseball facts straight. Hank Aaron played 12 years for the Milwaukee Braves and 9 years for the Atlanta Braves. He finished his career again in Milwaukee with the Brewers.

  29. Roy McClary says:

    Why can’t this former President just go back where he came from? His opinion’s mean nothing. Biden has enough of his henchmen in his Cabinet already. You had 8 years to ruin this Republic, with your Socialist, Muslim philosophies. You wounded, but didn’t override our forefathers well written Construction. Biden won’t either. Nice try. Bye! God Bless America, land of the free. Home of the brave.

  30. J N says:

    So Barry if I understand you correctly, the best way to celebrate Hank Aaron’s 21 years with the Atlanta Braves is to punish the small businesses around the stadium which are predominantly black by moving the all star game. I am sure these businesses were gearing up for the mid summer classic and spent some money for decoration etc. what is your method to pay them back? Way to go Barry, another twist to fit the demented narrative. I doubt you spent much time reading Election integrity bill

  32. William Ashby says:

    He should keep his nose out of items like this he can think whatever he wants but has no business entering into the controversy nationally

  33. CHRSTINE says:

    EVERY STATE THAT WILL NOT COMLPY WITH THE HEAD ASSHOLES WILL PAY SOME SORT OF PRICE LIKE LACK OF FUNDING HOW ABOUT EACH STATE COLLECT THE TAXES ON PURCHASES AND KEEPS IT TO RUN THE STATE HOW ABOUT YOU MUFFGGERS DROP DEAD AND I AM SURE THAT OBAMA IS DOING IT HE THINKS HE IS BRILLIANT BUT THE DAMAGE HE DID WHILE OFFICE TOOK TRUMP A WHILE TO CLEAN UP THATS WHY THEY ARE SPENDING SO MUCH TIME TRYING TO DESTROY HIM TRUMP IS NOT A POLITICIAN HE IS A BUSSINESS MAN AND KNOWS HIS STUFF

  34. Sandy says:

    Obama is the puppet master pulling the strings for Biden. Biden is to fucking stupid to do anything. Our country is in such need of a Great President like Trump. He warned us of what was gonna happen. Obama and his ugly wife need to find a hobby and shut the hell up. Voter ID should be required in all 50 states. Oh but wait then the Democrats couldn’t cheat that’s the real reason they are against Georgia’s new rules. Good for you Georgia stand your ground.

  35. Don says:

    Americans don’t need his ignorant opinion on anything since he’s a foreign national.

  36. Jan says:

    Obummer’s comments are third grade BS, but you have to consider the source. Thankfully, he isn’t president anymore. We don’t need his opinions on anything.

  37. Nancy says:

    All has been said there should be some way that all this cricked stuff they are doing could be stopped before our country is in the ruins and no return

  38. charles jacobson says:

    Who cares what that “CHIMP”thinks.not a question.

  39. Lester says:

    major league baseball was payed with a lucrative deal to replace nba in china. obama plays race to cause civil unrest to divide and conquer the u.s.a. for the muslims…

  40. Donnie George says:

    Once again affirming he is the number one cheating liar of the ass riding party. He should be in prison along with a long lists of asses. Thankfully God has a plan for him and his crew. I hope they love a warm climate.

  41. Robert Moyer says:

    Obama needs to mind his own damn businessw. He srewd thing up enough when he was in office

  42. Linda Bradshaw says:

    If Obama, Clinton, George Bush, President Carter. they are like farts, they stink, but, then one day, they just go away

  43. Jack Spring says:

    Obummer needs to get off the stage, he doesn’t belong any more. GA seems to have a better grasp of what people want. NO ID, NO VOTE!!!

  44. David says:

    I put Obuma in the same place as the Kardashian’s I almost throw up every time I see or hear about them

  45. Jim says:

    OBAMA – SCUMBAG

  46. Robert says:

    Just shows how ignorant he is. Did he even read Georgia’s new voting law? Democrats put down people of color by assuming they don’t know how to get an ID. Everyone needs an ID to do just about anything. Have a bank account, cash a check, buy or even rent a car, even get food stamps/welfare (No matter your race). I guess it’s just the Democrats that don’t know any better!

  47. rick says:

    Just like the organ-grinder’s monkey, Obummer has to squeal at something constantly, even when it makes no sense! But that’s how narcissistic, legends-in-their-own-minds are! This idiot is a psychopath!

  48. John Deck says:

    Former President Obama should do as Every President that preceded him has done, go back home, stay out of politics.

  49. Rev4God says:

    Thank you once again mr. Obama, you have once again shown the American people just how un-American you are. So glad what you say doesn’t matter, it never did.

  50. All dems are nothing but listed steal elections want thier own way and destroy out rights. They want toske is slaved as china does. They want a civil eat people stand up for our rights. Scous stand up for our rights don’t let dems run you if not then get out. The people will prevail.

  51. Did Americans Need Barack Obama’s Opinion on THIS? NO. We did NOT need to have BHO for POTUS, either.

  52. Ally says:

    Obama stated while in his birth place he was the first Kenyan elected President of the United States. He should have never sat in the Oval Office cuz he was NEVER an American but now his communist life will be put on display fir all of his worshipping fans to see his absolute hatred of this country.

  53. Sick&Tired says:

    Obama….Was and Always Be….An “OBAMANATION”.!!! To This Country.!!! He was a Miserable President and Still a Miserable Human Being….IF, You can or would even want to call him that….. He Hurt this Country So Badly and it ALL is Because of the Stupid People that Voted that Traitorous Scum Bag of a Person into Office….Not Only for 4 years, but another 4 years….How Pathetic ALL of those D U _ B….A _ _…. People were and still are. The Dumb Americans of this Country and there ARE A LOT OF THEM.!!! Totally Stupid…on a Big Time Scale.!!!!!

  54. TroopAbn says:

    POS Kenyan! He’s behind all f this. You don’t think that Beijing-Joe did this? I asked him when I lived in Delaware (Dover & Wilmington are like Baltimore) about a football game? His reply was “I didn’t even know what innng we were in”? This is the Kenyan’s 3rd term.

  55. Spiro Pettas says:

    What do you expect from the worst President in modern history ( except Biden). Hell with the MLB. I’m done with baseball. I was looking forward to going this year, but not now or ever.

  56. Anthony Moreland says:

    Obama is an Islamic sympathizer and a traitor to the Constitutional Republic. He has no right to speak for the patriotic citizenry. His idea of voting rights for all includes illegals, & the already deceased. He should be arrested, & legally tried by a non Deep State Judiciary, if there is one, then hanged for treason.

  57. Thomas James says:

    ObamaRAT was the worse so called president we have had. He just needs ta vet the cain out of politics before he can do any more damage. As for me I stand with Georgia proudly. ID should be required in all 50 States.

  58. TOM CALABRESE says:

    P.O.S. OBAMA He is responsible for all the racial divide in this country.
    He tries to act like a brother, but he associates with white billionaires.
    People wake up. He is running the country, not Biden.

  59. Ron says:

    Obama should keep his opinions to himself and stay out of it. Just like the rest of the lefties he doesn’t have a clue as to what this bill is really about.

  60. S says:

    That because obuma and his she-male wife are commie pigs just like kamel-toe and china joe! Fuck obuma! His opinion isn’t worth shit!

  61. Obama needs to LEAVE America!!! He has NO CLUE HOW to LEAD!! Election integrity IS ALLOWING for EVERY AMERICAN, LEGAL AMERICAN to VOTE!! Since WHEN is that such an evil idea??? Pack your bags Obama and get tye heck out of this country you dislike so much!!! You’re disgraceful!!😡

  62. Obama should have never been President, I believe he was an illegal President just like Biden! They were both put into office by the crooked Democrate party! Obama was the worse President along with Biden who is even worse if that is possible! Now Obama is the worse ex President and he continues to interfere even though no one wants to hear what his opinion i! I just wish Obama would go away and take Susan Rice and Biden with him,none of them belong in our Government, they actually belong in prison!

    • You’ve got that right!! He was a HORRIBLE Pres!!! Biden IS WORSE though!! He has already turned the country upside down and inside out! The border crisis is DISGRACEFUL!! Other countries are seeing how BAD this whole mess is!! Imagine if Pres Trump would’ve done anything of this magnitude, he would’ve been crucified!! The double standard for these crooked, stupid Dems is appalling!!! At least everyone is seeing this stupidity!! 9h, and then there’s Covid!! Here we have been SHUT DOWN to contain this thing abd NOW ALL THESE ILLEGALS are being allowed in WITH IT to spread it once again!! Sooooo stupid!! I’m sick of masks and having my rights stripped away !!!!

  63. DENNIS says:

    Obama needs to THINK before speaking ie GA new election law ONLY asks for ID’s Many are acceptable.

    Trump got business’ moving forward – Obama had too many laws impeding growth.

    OBAMA WAS TERRIBLE in the mid -east and beyond. What about the plane load of
    “cash” sent to IRAN plus always apologizing to world leaders for our strength and support over the decades.

  64. sad says:

    Look Obama is sticking his nose where is doesn’t belong. He’s out, he had 8yrs in office and screwed up everything. He needs to stay out, old Joe is screwing up everything on his own.

  65. Nyleve Nonnel says:

    He didn’t get enough attention, when he was president. So now he’s shaking his baby rattle, to get attention. Obama, get as like past Presidents have. Your a joke.

  66. Terry Michel says:

    Why wouldn’t Democraps be outraged by election integrity

    • Houston says:

      JUST PLANT ALL THESE FUCKING PIECES OF WHALE SHIT, FROM BIDEN ON DOWN. INCLUDING PENCE, OBAMA, AND ALL THEIR WORTHLESS FAMILY MEMBERS.

    • Margaret says:

      He was a lousy pres.guess he thinks we care now. He and Michael have stayed in the news,they need to go home like the others,we are tired of them. Guess he stayed so he could run the term for Biden,who is ill.This is crap,we are being used,they try to turn us into socialist, not happening.

  67. gary Fernett says:

    He is on his 3 term…who do you think is really running our white house…every order passed out so far has come from him…he is destroying our country on purpose so they can rebuild it the way they want to.

    • DLS says:

      Totally agree. The team of Obama, Soros, Clinton, Harris, and others are controlling the puppet in the White House.

  68. ex president, go home go retire go to any island just leave the government alone you couldn’t and you didn’t do nothing when you had the chance so just leave

  69. Calvin says:

    Obama was the worst president in history.. I don’t have time nor space to
    list every thing he screwed up.Suffice it to say he walked all over the
    constitution.

    • Robert Miller says:

      Well Homey(Barack),I guess your people are to FU**EN stupid to go out and get an ID? That’s what you’re saying numb-nuts!

    • Robert says:

      Old Quid-pro-Joe is on his way to take that prize away from Obummer, just like Obumme took it away from Jimmy Carter!

  70. Anthony says:

    Of course he has to make public statements regarding passing communist agendas, his second half Biden cant even walk up a set of steps. This had nothing to do with making elections fair, it’s about keeping the status quo so Republicans can never win again. Communism right…

  71. Jim says:

    Obama should keep his trap shut like other past presidents. I personally still believe he was an illegitimate president. According to his own grandmother, he was born in Kenya, not inHawaii as he claims, which makes him ineligible to be president of the United States of America.

    • Houston says:

      HE WAS AN ILLIGITAMIT N——-, FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY, WHO CAME HERE FROM ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

  72. Katy says:

    I’m sorry, but there is no excuse for not having a photo ID. Go to the local driver’s license testing facility and get one! ID is necessary for most anything. That’s just another lib excuse for whining.

  73. Talltexan says:

    FUCK…!!!!!…..Obama and everything he represents and stands for. I’ll never relent or compromise my conservative beliefs…..ULTRA…Conservative beliefs….period..!!! Anytime Obama is mentioned in the press….it’s just just more communist mis-information and stirring up civil discord.

  74. Susan says:

    Democracy dies when good men say nothing. We don’t have to agree with everything that we hear from people in leadership, but it’s critical that we hear from all ‘sides’ and all parties, in order to remain informed and make our own decisions.

  75. ron knox says:

    soetoro is still the worst US president ever
