Under the morally-bankrupt guidance of Jesse Jackson and the La Raza crowd, baseball fans have been urged to forego the traditional celebration of the mid-summer classic, AKA, the All Star game, in favor of protesting a law passed to protect American citizens from the ravages of illegal aliens.
Jackson and La Raza, the Hispanic version of the KKK, are in a snit because the 2011 All Star game will be played at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, that “racist” state that passed SB 1070 to protect citizens, regardless of race, color or national origin, from illegal aliens, most of whom come here illegally via Mexico.
As reported at the reference, Jackson carried the Racism pennant to the ball players in a feeble attempt to demean and politicize the national past time:
“PHOENIX (AP) — The Rev. Jesse Jackson is urging baseball's All-Stars to speak out against the Arizona immigration law, saying they should follow the example set by Jackie Robinson when he broke the game's color barrier more than a half-century ago.
The sport's national spotlight returned this week to the Sonoran Desert for the first time since Luis Gonzalez's ninth-inning single off Mariano Rivera won Game 7 of the 2001 World Series for the Diamondbacks, landing the All-Stars — those who didn't drop out — in the hot debate over the law known as SB 1070.
Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig ignored calls by some to move Tuesday's game.”
Thankfully, Jackson’s tired, old race-baiting message has failed to resonate as most players are simply ignoring the rhetoric issued by the so-called reverend and the equally un-American La Raza.
Let the message go forth, loud and clear: PLAY BALL, Not Race Politics!
