After the fiasco that the 2020 election became, there was little doubt that states around the nation would soon be working on ways to better protect the sanctity of their balloting system.
One of the fist to make moves in this regard was the State of Georgia, whose governor days ago singed a new law that completely irked the Democrats. They saw that it’s cruel and restrictive, and they have even gone so far as to suggest that there is an element of racism to the new regulations.
The law is so unpopular, in fact, that a number of major corporations are boycotting the state of Georgia on account of it. This includes Major League Baseball, who moved the 2021 All Star Game out of Smyrna, Georgia, (home of the Braves), and rehired it out in Denver at Coors Field.
Now, as some in Georgia complain about the economic impacts of this move, President Joe Biden has one heck of a statement for the Peach State.
“It is reassuring to see that for-profit operations and businesses are speaking up about how these new Jim Crow laws that are just antithetical to who we are,” the president tools reporters Tuesday.
“There’s another side to it too. When they in fact move out of Georgia, people who need help most, people who are making hourly wages, sometimes get hurt the most,” Biden said.
He said he supports however businesses decide to protest the law. “I think it’s a very tough decision for a corporation to make or group to make, I respect them when they make that judgment, I support whatever judgment they make. The best way to deal with this is for Georgia and other states to smarten up. Stop it, stop it,” he said.
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has been fully committed to the new law, even going so far as to outwardly refute any attempts to have the legislation rescinded or reviewed.
