ABC's "The View" derailed into awkward silence on Monday when co-host
Meghan McCain said if President Biden supports Major League Baseball’s
decision to pull the All-Star Game out of Atlanta to protest Georgia's
new voting laws, he should also keep Olympic athletes out of China.

"Oh, for frog legs," co-host Whoopi Goldberg uttered as McCain made her
point.

The drama began when co-host Joy Behar claimed Republicans want to
"stop people from voting" because they’re concerned the GOP wouldn’t
win a fair election. McCain, the show’s lone conservative but not
always a defender of Republicans, didn’t agree.

"First off, if Major League Baseball is going to boycott the All-Star
game, there are a bunch of other baseball games in Georgia that are
coming up," McCain said, referring to the Atlanta Braves’ 81 home games
scheduled for 2021.

"They should boycott that, too. Put your money where your mouth is.
Just completely remove yourself entirely from Georgia since it’s a
racist, deplorable, unforgivable place, according to Major League
Baseball," McCain said.

"There is a huge misunderstanding of this bill. The Washington Post
actually gave President Biden Four Pinocchios, it’s the first Four
Pinocchios that he’s gotten since he’s been president," McCain said,
referring to the liberal newspaper’s term for a "whopper" of a lie.

Biden received the rating last week for falsely claiming the Georgia
voting law limited early voting hours. McCain called criticism of the
Georgia law "intellectually dishonest" and noted it’s actually tougher
to vote early in New York.

Among the moments criticized by the Post was when Biden said last week
he would "strongly support" the All-Star Game being relocated in
response to the law that he called "Jim Crow on steroids."

"I don’t think we’re going to accomplish anything just by all of us
boycotting each other," she continued. "I’m really, really disappointed
in President Biden… he’s the first sitting president in U.S. history to
call for an economic boycott targeting a specific state. This is
healing the soul of the nation? This is bringing Americans together?
This is being a president for all of America? It is not. This is
culture war stuff at its very base level and it is only seeking to
divide us even further. That is not what I was promised with President
Biden."

McCain wasn’t finished, declaring her "final thing" on the topic is
that Biden needs to hold China accountable for its actions, too.

"If we’re going to do this moral equivalency, sliding scale, with the
Biden administration, 100 percent you need to come out today and say
you are boycotting the Beijing Olympics because there is mass genocide
going on with the Uighurs there and you have nothing to say," McCain
said. "We’re still going to the Olympics where mass genocide is
happening but we’re going to boycott everything in the state of
Georgia? That is ridiculous and the American public aren’t stupid."

A flustered Goldberg began to talk over McCain and said, "Oh, for frog
legs."

McCain responded, "I’m sorry? I’m sorry?"

Goldberg asked, "Are you done?"

"Yes," McCain said, as she appeared to think there were technical
issues. "Yes, sorry."

Goldberg then declared the Georgia law to be "B.S" and said she hadn’t
thought about the Olympics.

The recently enacted law places new restrictions on voting by mail,
adds voter ID requirements and limits ballot drop boxes. It also
mandates two Saturdays of early voting ahead of general elections, an
increase from just one, and leaves two Sundays as optional. The law
also bans outside groups from handing out food or water to those
waiting in line to vote.

Trump won.

When the Washington Post is even calling Biden out for lying, you know
they must be whoppers, indeed.
"If we’re going to do this moral equivalency, sliding scale, with the

She's absolutely right. Especially with regard to this base pandering
and virtue-signaling by these professional sports leagues.

They beat their chests with the oh-so-righteous moral stances they take
over Black Lives Matter or a state's no-tranny's-in-the-girls-room law
or Georgia's election law, but the moment someone says "China", their
morality goes right out the window. Anytime you want to expose a
corporation's hypocrisy when it's engaged in a fresh round of
virtue-signaling is just say "China" and you either get crickets or you
get that massive hypocritical douchenozzle LeBron James telling you to
"Shut up! Just shut up!"

Hell, MLB is not even walking their talk in Georgia, let alone China. As
McCain pointed out, they only moved one game. The other 80+ games of the
season will be played in Atlanta as scheduled.

One game to send the virtue-signal, but the rest remain in place because
we can't let that pesky morality actually hurt our bottom line or
anything.
Goldberg then declared the Georgia law to be "B.S" and said she hadn’t
thought about the Olympics.
No shit. You mean Whoopi the deep thinker hadn't considered the full
depth and breadth of her rhetoric's implications? Say it ain't so!

Biden did not "call for" any boycott. The companies doing it are all
doing it on their own initiative.
Sure they are.

Sure they are.
It is their decision and not someone ordering them to make the change.
Now they are doing it mostly because of the public callouts for
boycotts but then that's really not much different from people calling
for the return of the Old Coke when Coca Cola tried to replace it with
New Coke. Companies are always going to respond to public pressure
just to keep the customers happy.

Or to keep powerful politicians happy.
