Legendary baseball author Peter Gammons earned his manner into the Corridor of Disgrace Friday by calling Georgia’s Republican governor a KKK member. Gov. Brian Kemp signed election reform into regulation in March, prompting an insidious backlash and Main League Baseball to pull this yr’s All-Star Recreation out of the Peach State.
Frothing-at-the-mouth leftists are in overdrive condemning Gov. Kemp and Republicans as “racist” for his or her efforts to guarantee voting integrity. President Joe Biden even joined the refrain of fascists demanding that baseball stick it to Georgia for making an attempt to guard elections from fraud.
Gammons, 75, lined baseball for the Boston Globe for many years and has labored as an analyst for ESPN and the Main League Baseball community. He’s a three-time winner of the Nationwide Sportswriter of the Yr award and obtained a baseball Corridor of Fame honor in 2005.
This shameful tweet by Gammons (who’s seen above in file picture), although, is worthy solely of condemnation, deserving of Corridor of Disgrace classification:
The novel Left is pushing laborious on the false narrative that Georgia’s new election regulation will promote racism, and Gammons swallowed it hook, line and sinker.
To Gammons, Gov. Kemp is somebody who, beneath the quilt of darkness, wears Ku Klux Klan clothes. He’s allegedly canceling the voting rights of minorities – when he has performed no such factor.
Rob Manfred, the cowardly commissioner of baseball who’s permitting Democrats and woke companies to name the pictures for his trade, is a forward-thinking woke “progressive”. By cravenly following the woke crowd, he’s making an attempt to swim in opposition to the Georgia Republican tide and do one thing brave. That is Gammons’ flawed, inflammatory considering.
In the meantime, Gov. Kemp is – in line with Gammons — residing a warped existence in a pre-Civil Battle time of authorized slavery. And loving it.
Manfred and Gammons simply moved baseball to the entrance of the wokeball checklist. They’re giving Individuals much more purpose to flip off the sports activities and watch “My 600-pound Life,” skilled wrestling and different mundane tv applications that bested professional sports activities viewing in latest months.
