Chairman's Corner

by Jason Shepherd

Are you WOKE?

If you applaud MLB's decision to pull the All-Star Game out of Atlanta because a political campaign can't pass out water less than 150 feet from a polling station but see no problem with MLB having an exhibition game in Cuba where you can be jailed or executed for being a member of another political party, you just might be WOKE.

If you think MLB was standing up for voting rights by hurting small and minority owned businesses in Cobb County because Georgia only has 17-19 days of early voting but see no issues with keeping their HQ in New York, whose voting laws also prohibit food and drinks, but also only give voters 9 days of early voting and require voters to provide a reason to obtain an absentee ballot, you just might be WOKE.

If you continue to echo President Joe Biden and call Georgia’s new election integrity laws “Jim Crow 2.0” or “Jim Crow on steroids,” despite the fact the President earned “Four Pinocchios” from the left-leaning Washington Post, you just might be WOKE.

If you put partisan lies ahead of the livelihood of Cobb County residents and business owners, you just might be WOKE (or at least a member of the Cobb County Democratic Party).

Regardless of what woke culture and corporate CEOs following it say and threaten, Georgians will not be swayed by corporate economic blackmail based on lies and disinformation from the left and their newly appointed leaders like Stacey Abrams.

Meanwhile, the left is promoting HR 1, which will completely undermine our elections as they have been conducted at the state level for over 200 years.

As Chair of Cobb County and Chair of the Over 80,000 caucus for the Georgia Republican Party, I have drafted a resolution which would ban Coca-Cola products at all Georgia GOP functions (hey, we are in the South, sweet tea is good enough for the GAGOP, right?) and prohibit any official Party travel being made on Delta Airlines. If you want a copy of the resolution to propose at your county or district convention, click here to download.

I will also be drafting a resolution aimed at Major League Baseball (let’s see where they pick for the All-Star Game and what voting restrictions the new state has).

As I have said on Fox & Friends, MLB should be supporting stealing bases, not stealing votes.

However, if that’s what you favor, you’re probably not WOKE. Congratulations for that!

Yours in Freedom,


Jason Shepherd

Chairman, Cobb County Republican Party
