How Biden’s support for the All-Star Game boycott divided Democrats in Georgia

How Biden’s support for the All-Star Game boycott divided Democrats in Georgia

The question should have been a simple one.President Biden had just finished delivering remarks outlining his infrastructure plan when he sat down for an interview with ESPN’s Sage Steele in Pittsburgh on March 31. Midway through the conversation, the “SportsCenter” co-host noted that “sports and politics cross paths sometimes” and pressed the president on the campaign by some Major League Baseball players to move the All-Star Game out of Atlanta in response to Georgia’s controversial new voting restrictions.Biden’s answer was swift — and seemingly definitive.“I think today’s professional...

Thousands of Proud Boys plan to rally in Portland, setting up another clash in a combustible city

PORTLAND, Ore. — Thousands of members of the far-right Proud Boys plan to mass at a park here on Saturday afternoon, setting up another clash of liberal and conservative extremes in a city that has become the public front line for combustible — and deadly — political conflict.The so-called Western chauvinist group espouses pro-Trump, police-friendly rhetoric, but its members have a reputation for sparking fights with the far left that devolve into mayhem.
