Leftist activists are busy whipping up a national boycott of Georgia-based businesses over the state’s new election integrity law. The boycott has the support of Hollywood and the White House, with President Joe Biden saying this week that he would support moving the MLB’s All-Star Game out of the state as a sign of protest.
Georgia Democrats are now left trying to talk the mob down.
“I absolutely oppose and reject any notion of boycotting Georgia,” Democratic Sen. Jon Ossoff said in a statement on Thursday. “Georgia welcomes business, investment, jobs, opportunity, and events. In fact, economic growth is driving much of the political progress we have seen here.”
Stacey Abrams, who, having lost Georgia’s governorship in 2018, rebranded herself as a voting rights activist, agreed and reminded Democrats that economic boycotts would hurt the very communities they claim to represent.
