Couple Claims They Were Forced To Take Down Betsy Ross Flag; The Reason Will Make Your Blood Boil

This is maddening.

What is our nation coming to when just flying your own flag, a symbol of what we stand for as a country — liberty, prosperity, the pursuit of happiness — is labeled a symbol of hate?

This has become a common thought among the left in America, with more and more folks burning the flag, spitting on it, and trashing it and the principles we stand for.

What’s worse is that doing this is equal to spitting in the faces of all those who shed blood for this flag and for our great nation in generations past.

A recent example of this comes to us from Utah, where a couple, Randolf and Diana Scott, claim a soccer stadium threatened to eject them from the stadium if they didn’t put away their Betsy Ross American flag.

Stadium officials, according to the couple, were less than pleased with the flag and demanded they put it away or be made to leave the stadium. The staff insisted that the flag was a “symbol for hate groups,” and had been the subject of myriad complaints from fellow fans.

The Scotts, who are season ticket holders, regularly dress up with patriotic-themed garb and hairstyles, and typically wave American flags at the events.

Randolf told KSTU-TV that his wife had purchased the Betsy Ross flag because his old flag was falling apart.

“Diana bought it for me, actually, because my other flag was kind of old and falling apart,” he explained.

Diana said, “They kept telling us if he wasn’t going to take the flag down, we were going to be rejected from the game.”

The Scotts said they initially refused to take it down, but eventually decided to comply with the rule so as to not be ejected from the game.

Randolf stated that a staff member asked him what the purpose of the flag was, to which he replied that he and his wife love America.

“When people see me or Diana with this flag, I hope they can understand that it’s about the freedoms we have here in America. The legacy that America has,” Randolf said.

Here’s what the Real Salt Lake soccer club had to say about the incident:

“At Real Salt Lake, it is our mission to unify our community through soccer and we promote inclusion, diversity and acceptance. It is important that everyone in the community not only feel welcome at our stadiums, but appreciated, respected and valued. Rio Tinto Stadium is reflective of that on match day and we encourage a unifying and welcoming environment to all fans at all of our RSL and Utah Royals FC matches.”

“To be permitted to bring a flag into any of our stadiums is a privilege,” the statement continued. “Recently, and very controversially as well as surprising to us, the Colonial flag has been adopted as a symbol for hate groups. Any controversial flags or other similar banners or signs with symbols of hatred, divisiveness and/or intolerance whether intentional or otherwise will not be permitted in our stadiums. Period.”

Sigh.

Can you believe it? The American flag, a symbol of liberty and freedom recognized all over the world, has become a topic of controversy. It’s truly tragic.

Granted, this is an old flag, but it stands for the same principles our current one stands for, so it’s all the same. In the end, this flag is not racist in the slightest. Nor does it represent oppression. Quite the opposite, actually.

I certainly hope a time comes in the near future when it is en vogue to be patriotic again. Even if it doesn’t, we all need to keep being faithful to our beliefs, especially the one that says America is the greatest country on earth.

Save conservative media!

AOC Strikes Back At Manchin For Criticizing Her, Says He’s Diminishing ‘Seriousness Of’ My ‘Policy Work’

Published

The Democratic Party is experiencing a lot of in-fighting between the hardcore socialist wing and the more traditionally center-left establishment, a battle that is clearly seen by the tiff between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Joe Manchin. Manchin recently slammed AOC, stating that she spends most of her time on Twitter rather than being active in Congress. This comment didn’t sit well with the congresswoman who is lashing out in retaliation against Manchin for his comment, accusing him of “diminishing the seriousness” of her “policy work.” “I find it amusing when politicians try to diminish the seriousness of our policy work, movement organizing & grassroots fundraising to ‘she just tweets,’ as though ‘serious’ politics is only done by begging corporate CEOs for money through wax-sealed envelopes delivered by raven,” AOC posted on Twitter. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1333958991613923331 via Daily Wire: Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet came in response to a comment Manchin made in response to her trolling him on social media. “I guess she put the dagger stare on me,” Manchin told The New York Times. “I don’t know the young lady — I really don’t. I never met her. I’m understanding she’s not that active with her bills or in committee. She’s more active on Twitter than anything else.” The report noted that Manchin’s words constituted “a sharp insult” because in the U.S. Senate “legislative prowess is prized.” According to Congress.gov, Ocasio-Cortez has not introduced a single bill as the primary sponsor that has become law. In fact, the furthest any of her bills have made it is to Floor Consideration and that was just one bill. She has cosponsored 11 bills that have become law. Manchin, a centrist Democrat, also conducted an interview with Fox News in which he ripped AOC and her buddies. “They’ll have to answer to the public,” Manchin told…

Rudy Giuliani

The NY Times has managed to get a lot of things wrong over the years that President Trump has been in office. How many times does this publication need to have its credibility shot all to pieces before folks stop reading it? President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani is currently denying a report published by the New York Times that suggests he once discussed a preemptive pardon as recently as last week. “#FakeNews NYT lies again,” he posted on Twitter. via Newsmax: “Never had the discussion they falsely attribute to an anonymous source,” Giuliani said. “Hard to keep up with all their lies.” Giuliani, who has not been charged with any crime, has drawn scrutiny for his dealings in Ukraine on behalf of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has come out and denied allegations made in a recent New York Times report that he discussed a pardon with the commander-in-chief. Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello, told the Times that Giuliani is not concerned about the investigation, “because he didn’t do anything wrong, and that’s been our position from Day 1.” Mainstream media news outlets have been biased against the president for a long, long time. Since he first announced his bid for the White House. They recognize his power and influence over regular Americans. His ability to relate to the common man and to actually do what he says he’s going to do frightens liberals. Trump stands in direct opposition to their goal of transforming our country into a socialist nightmare. Is it any wonder they’d start targeting those who have helped him in his crusade to put America first?
