First Nike, Now Soccer Disrespects The Flag
First the world's largest shoe company Nike attacks the Betsy Ross Flag and now one of America's major professional sports organization does the same. Here's another example of the politically correct mob running amok and attacking traditional American Values. Major League Soccer bans couple from waving Betsy Ross Flag at games. The 13-star "Betsy Ross" era American flag is back on the sports pages, with Major League Soccer recently telling a Utah couple they can't fly the colors at matches.
Fans of the World Cup Teams and other professional soccer leagues have brought their national flag to their games for years. Recently, Nike recalled the 'Betsy Ross Flag' sneakers because Colin Kaepernick said the flag was racist. Now it's hit another sport that is one of the hottest in the country.
Season ticket holders Randolf and Diana Scott were asked by Real Salt Lake officials to put the flag away or risk getting tossed from Rio Tinto Stadium. Since the early American flag, which predates the abolition of slavery, has been adopted by hate groups, its banning can fall under the league's rules.
According to the Fan Code of Conduct, "Using (including on any sign or other visible representation) political, threatening, abusive, insulting, offensive language and/or gestures, which includes racist, homophobic, xenophobic, sexist or otherwise inappropriate language or behavior" is prohibited. How do you feel about the flag controversy?
