I might just have to root for the Rangers

 They're the one MLB team that doesn't put on a Pride Night.

June is Pride Month for the LGBTQ+ community. As a result, many Major League Baseball teams across the country are planning to host Pride Night celebrations at their ballparks – or similar promotions that celebrate the LGBTQ+ community. But one team has made it clear that they will not hold such a celebration: the Texas Rangers.

While every other team across Major League Baseball has held a Pride Night or similar promotional event, the Dallas Morning News reports that Texas Rangers have not hosted a promotion to welcome and celebrate the LGBTQ+ in over two decades. Back in 2003, the team did invite several LGBTQ+ groups to the ballpark, according to The Advocate, but it was not officially marketed as any specific promotion and was met with anti-gay protests. The team has not hosted a similar event since.

Good on 'em.  The more you feed into this woke bullshit, the more the woke crowd will expect you to participate.  Until you end up like Bud Light and Target, losing your customers and wondering why your stock price keeps dropping.

You want to know how badly Bud Light hates their own customers?  That VP of marketing still hasn't been fired yet.  How many billions of dollars do you have to lose your company before they fire you?  If any of us had performed an action that lost our company a quarter of their sales, would we still have a job?  You know we wouldn't.  But that Heinersheid woman (apologies for the mis-spelling, but I didn't bother to look up her last name) tanked A-B stock, lost at least a quarter of sales for Bud Light that her competitors happily gobbled up, and she's still employed.

Because the over-credentialed Ivy League trash running A-B hate you.  And they don't think she was wrong.

Anyways...  I'm betting Bud Light sales at Ranger games is down as well.
