April 4, 2021: Major League Baseball (MLB), Delta Airlines, Coca Cola, Nike, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and many other obscenely wealthy companies and sports celebrities have thrown their full support behind the communist movement taking hold in the US and the CCP genocidal regime. Make no mistake, the artificial objection to the Georgia State government cleaning up its statewide election and voting process, is a loathsome act of treason and hypocritical greed by people who have enjoyed the ultimate fruits of a free, prosperous, and just nation. Instead, the MLB and a group of disgraceful traitors (from professional high-profile athletes to Fortune 500 corporations) have decided to align themselves with the genocidal CCP who are guilty of imprisoning and slaughtering hundreds of millions of their own people. The actions of the MLB are atrocious and should be met with a full-on boycott of their league and anything go do with it. MLB athletes should be ashamed of themselves; although they may be too ignorant to fully understand they are being manipulated by a form of anti-American propaganda that is rotting the country from within. The MLB League Commissioner, Robert Manfred Jr., is a sell-out to the American tradition of major league baseball and to the country itself. The steps announced to move the All-Star Game away from Atlanta is a pure political play and one that is grounded in showing support for the socialist movement in America while maintaining full allegiance to (and comfort in) their partnership with the genocidal CCP.
Before getting into the details of the anti-American and treasonous behavior of the MLB and its “unholy cartel” of wealthy professional athletes (spearheaded by hypocritical ingrates like Lebron James, Magic Johnson, and Michael Jordan) and unethical fortune 500 sponsors, let us all remind ourselves of the CCP’s major crimes against humanity. We will begin this discussion with a formal United Nations definition of genocide: “The crime of genocide is characterized by the specific intent to destroy in whole or in part a national, ethnic, racial or religious group by causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; [or] deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part.” (Epoch Times - Daksha Devnani; February 20, 2021) Every time an MLB fan turns on the TV to watch an MLB game, or goes to the stadium to watch a game, or throws on their favorite jersey, or purchases a product from an MLB sponsor they should remember that the MLB and its corporate sponsors are directly affiliated with and paid billions to support the CCP and everything it does - including more than 20 years of genocide!
The following fact list is not intended to be an exhaustive one but rather to give a vivid sense of the evil associated with the CCP (and anyone, like the MLB, who endorses and ‘partners’ with this genocidal regime):
- Since 2017, the Chinese communist regime has significantly scaled up its detention facilities and concentration camps in Xinjiang. Based on the satellite imagery data, researchers at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) have identified and mapped over 380 sites in the detention and concentration camp network across the Xinjiang region.
- According to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the communist regime has incarcerated over a million Uyghurs since the year 2017 and has subjected countless others from this ethnic minority to strict surveillance, ‘psychological cleansing’, and forced sterilizations.
- According to the small number of detainees who managed to escape the CCP’s detention facilities and flee China, these detainees reported inhumane torture carried out behind the barbed, closed walls of Xinjiang’s detention network.
- The detained Uyghur men and women are relentlessly coerced to renounce their faith in Islam and pledge their loyalty to the CCP. Apart from severe physical, emotional, and mental persecution, they are also subjected to forced sterilization. Uyghur women have also reported constant sexual abuse, rape, and forced abortions.
- On February 8 (2021), a group of London barristers concluded in a 105-page legal opinion that the acts carried out by the CCP against the Uyghur people in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region “amount to crimes against humanity and the crime of genocide.”
- Rahima Mahmut (Director of the World Uyghur Congress) described this crime against humanity in these painful words, “The purpose of genocide wherever it occurs is the eradication of the memory of a people from the face of the earth, the Uyghurs sadly have ‘the terrible honor’ of being the victims of China’s technology-backed mass-murder campaign”
- According to CCP state estimates, 70 million to 100 million people were practicing the gentle meditative exercises of Falun Gong in China by the late 1990s. The former leader of the CCP, Jiang Zemin, perceived Falun Gong’s moral presence as a threat to the CCP’s communist rule and launched an unprecedented persecutory campaign to eradicate it. Since then, millions of Falun Gong practitioners have been wrongfully detained, brainwashed, tortured, raped, and even killed for their vital organs for China’s state-run multi-billion-dollar forced organ theft.
- The persecution of Falun Gong reaches every corner of the country, with deaths confirmed in virtually every one of China’s provinces, autonomous regions, and province-level municipalities. Over 100,000 Falun Gong adherents have been sentenced to forced labor camps. In addition, thousands of Falun Gong are being locked up in psychiatric hospitals, brutally beaten, and drugged into submission with anti-psychotic drugs. Countless have been forced into brainwashing sessions to coerce them to renounce their beliefs. Tens of thousands have been permanently detained and imprisoned.
- Overwhelming evidence has been disclosed over the past 15 years proving the systematic murder of prisoners of the CCP state for purposes of the CCP organ trade. In 2006, independent Canadian investigators (Matas and Kilgour) produced a 46-page report, accompanied highlighting tens of thousands of Falun Gong prisoners of conscience in China who were targeted, imprisoned, tortured, and eventually murdered for their vital organs. In March 2020, the London China Tribunal released an appalling report stating that the CCP continues to kill and sell millions of people for their organs. The London China Tribunal report includes hundreds of pages of first-hand witness testimonies and submissions in detail. The report concluded, “Forced organ harvesting has been committed for years throughout China on a significant scale and that Falun Gong practitioners have been one - and probably the main - source of organ supply.”

Keep in mind that, while the MLB whines about the State of Georgia’s attempt to clean up the integrity of its voting system and mitigate the kinds of fraud and criminal activity we all saw in the 2020 federal election, the MLB league commissioner (Robert Manfred Jr.) and a group of filthy rich professional athletes have the room to cut lucrative financial deals with the CCP genocidal regime (described above). Does anyone not see the horrible hypocrisy, dark irony, and contradiction here? Robert Manfred Jr., professional athletes (Lebron James, Magic Johnson, and Michael Jordan), and fortune 500 corporations backing the CCP genocidal regime while putting their foot on the throat of American freedom and its democratic process should be boycotted by all Americans and rightfully labelled as CCP genocide enablers. As far as Extremely American is concerned, MLB has thrown in with the NFL and NBA in supporting the torture and murder of millions of innocent, helpless, and vulnerable victims in China. Blood is on their hands, literally and figuratively, in the name of their own selfish greed and ignorance. And at the same time as they back a communist genocidal regime, these wealthy ingrates have the unmitigated nerve to disrupt national unity and cohesion by undermining a State’s right to clean up its election and voting process. These professional leagues, their commissioners, their ‘high-profile’ athletes, and corporate sponsors should all be boycotted and investigated as indirect accomplices to the genocide we are witnessing in China by the CCP regime.
It was refreshing to see a political leader with the clout and integrity of President Trump step up and immediately condemn the recent political actions taken by the MLB and its Commissioner. On April 2, President Trump urged a national boycott of the MLB and its corporate sponsors (Coca-Cola, Nike, Delta to name a few) who are openly behaving like rabid political activists. The MLB and its sponsors are effectively interfering with election reforms that were enacted by duly elected Georgia State Republicans – these elected officials are trying to clean up a vulnerable election and voting process to ensure the integrity and value of every vote in that state. To reiterate, the MLB seems to be perfectly comfortable endorsing its partnership with a murderous genocidal CCP regime but takes issue with a state attempting to remove the risk of corruption and criminal activities during its election cycle.
President Trump offered these comments to elaborate on his views, “Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter I.D., which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections. Boycott baseball and all the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Nike, Delta, and all!”
President Trump’s comments came after MLB announced that it will be moving its All-Star game from Atlanta in protest to Georgia’s decision to clean up its inadequate election and voting processes. In a show of support for Joe Biden and the left’s radical lurch towards socialism and their ‘genocidal friends’ in the CCP, Robert Manfred Jr. (MLB Commissioner) proudly announced his politically inspired decision to move the MLB All-Star game to “demonstrate the league’s values as a sport.” Any patriotic baseball fan should be mortified by this act of politics and treason by a league and a commissioner who knows absolutely nothing about geo-politics. And if Manfred and his sycophants know about geopolitics then they are complicit with the CCP and their horrendous genocidal activities in China. Regardless, this collection of wealthy American ingrates should shut their mouths when it comes to any State’s efforts to address the democratic process in America – they should also take a good long look in the mirror when virtue signal to America as they reap billions in sponsorships and funding dollars from a homicidal and genocidal communist regime.
Keep in mind, the MLB decision is allegedly to protest the following reforms made in Georgia: to expand voting hours, to increase access to early voting, and to require that absentee voters provide a copy of their ID alongside their ballot (a requirement that already exists for in-person voters). Georgia Governor Brian Kemp stated, “It is obvious that neither Biden nor his handlers have actually read SB 202, which I signed into law yesterday. This bill expands voting access, streamlines vote-counting procedures, and ensures election integrity.” So, while the MLB is up in arms over these simple and very reasonable voting reforms, the MLB could care less about their preferred communist business partners in China who are slaughtering and torturing millions of innocent and helpless victims. Anyone who can tolerance this hypocrisy and criminality of the MLB and anyone associated with it, has no heart, no conscience, and no compassion whatsoever.
Not surprisingly, “Beijing Biden” has openly supported the MLB act of moving its All-Star game from Atlanta in response to the Georgia election reform legislation passed by Governor Kemp. Biden’s comments are predictable given his family’s deep financial and political ties to the CCP genocidal regime and his clear desire to drive an anarcho-fascist-communist political system into the US.
Our call-to-action is obvious: (1) boycott anything and everything associated with the MLB, (2) boycott equally complicit leagues like the NBA and NFL, (3) reject all high-profile, ignorant, and hypocritical professional athletes who chose to meddle in politics while participating in the CCP's genocide, (4) boycott all MLB corporate sponsors who support left wing politics and CCP genocide – Coca-Cola, Nike, and Delta Airlines to start with, and (5) support all politicians and state level governments who denounce CCP genocide and support the free and open systems of American democracy. Action against the MLB should be as simple as following your heart and your conscience – the best and most immediate way to "choke" the MLB is to completely boycott this league and anyone else associated with this league of selfish ingrates and traitors.
