A moderator asked Senator Raphael Warnock (D.Ga.), a question during Friday’s Georgia Senate debate. Softball questions about Atlanta Braves were asked by a moderator on Friday night’s Georgia Senate debate. Warnock, who was D.Ga., swung and missed the question with an answer that was merely a stock question.
Moderator Buck Lanford, Fox 5 Atlanta, asked the Braves: “Does [their logo, signature cheer] need to be rethought?” ”
Warnock began his response by saying, “Well, first of all, I’m praying right now for the Braves; there is a long way ahead.” “This was the most truth Warnock spoke in the debate, as the Braves were losing 9-1 against the Phillies in the National League Division Series.”
He said, “Listen, Braves management is meeting with our tribes, and they’re having a candid conversation about this.” “I know Braves people and have faith they will find a solution for everyone. ”

(Recorded: Warnock was against Georgia Bulldogs pro football star Herschel Walk. He stated clearly that the Braves do not need to make any changes.)
Warnock’s answer to the question was a total lie. It also showed his ignorance about the Braves.
Erick Erickson stated that Warnock would not publicly support the team, even though the American Indian tribes might. Braves even have a night dedicated to Indian tribes. The tribes not only approved the team’s name but also the tomahawk chop.
The Braves have been partnering up with the Eastern Band of the Cherokee for the past few seasons. It was something I wrote last year (see the link above). The partnership is a win-win situation for both parties as it allows Atlanta sports fans to learn more about Cherokee culture. It gives the Braves an opportunity to serve a part of the greater North Carolina/Georgia communities and takes away the fear of false allegations of racism against the organization span>
Warnock wasn’t the only Democrat to muff a question about the Braves. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre retorted a left-wing line regarding “conversations” that the Braves don’t need.
The @Braves should always be the Atlanta Braves.
Go Braves and Keep Choppin’! https://t.co/1gtzqCAEQh

Jean-Pierre told a reporter that he believed it was important to have the discussion. He also stated that Native American voices should be included in this conversation.
It is hard to see how Democrats could trust stock responses that were ignorant of Atlanta’s realities. They believed Stacey Abrams’ lies about “suppression” under Georgia’s new voter integrity laws.
