MLB Games To No Longer Require ID For Buying Alcoholic Beverages

From The Babylon Bee:

US — Major League Baseball has announced that they will no longer be requiring any form of valid ID for the purchase of alcohol at all games.

“We stand firm against racism and will never again require ID, and unfairly restrict people from purchasing alcohol,” said MLB spokesman Doug Wisacre. “Drinks are for everyone and hydration should always be easier to access, not harder!”

“Not everyone has the same level of access to acquiring an ID and we want to create an inclusive environment.” Mr. Wiseacre continued. “That’s why we will serve beer to all fans, no fuss no muss!”

In addition to not checking for ID, MLB is committing to no longer requiring locker room passes, or security badges which are harmful and unfairly discriminate against those who would want to enter restricted areas for nefarious reasons. They hope that this important step will provide more fairness and increase safety at all games.

At publishing time, MLB was already reconsidering not requiring ID as they are now under investigation for serving alcohol to thousands upon thousands of minors.

So MLB is fine with ball games in Cuba and training in China, but Georgia is the human rights problem, by Monica Showalter

Nowadays you just have to shout “human rights violation” without offering any proof. So nobody has shown how requiring an ID to vote is a human rights violation, or why vote fraud doesn’t violate the human rights of everyone who legally votes. From Monica Showalter at americanthinker.com:

You could tell that the Major League Baseball (MLB) decision to pull its All-Star game out of Atlanta was a deeply unpopular one, based on the ambivalent reaction of far-left failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.  Here’s the money quote from her Twitter statement:

After all, isn’t she the one who pushed through most of the fraud-enabling laws on the books in Georgia which triggered the recent legislative action?  The blacks-are-too-dumb-to-have-voter-ID idiotic notion, so by extension, nobody should have to show voter ID to vote, even though everyone needs to show ID to buy a beer at an MLB game, or buy a ticket to one?  She needs to make up her mind.

So which is it?  Not wanting to see families hurt, or being all in for the boycott of Atlanta, which certainly should affect the city tax base?  She wants to have it both ways, boycott but nobody hurt.  That’s because unlike MLB, she wants to win public office, and knows that screwing over black businesses, which will get it in the teeth with this MLB maneuver, is going to make her unpopular.

Here’s the MLB statement:

Abrams’s response is just the tip of the iceberg of the hypocrisy and contradictions seen from this MLB maneuver — stiffing black-owned American small businesses just emerging from a pandemic to protest a U.S. law they are perfectly free to campaign for to change otherwise through elections, or else playing the ball game without politics and drawing a big audience.  Which is it for them?  And by the way, how many of their baseball players are American citizens?
