WATCH: High School Officials Cancel National Anthem Before Game, So The Crowd Takes Matters Into Their Own Hands

Proud Americans still go out of their way to stand to honor the flag of this great nation.

We have reached a stunning new level of anti-Americanism in this country when a high school softball game opts to skip the National Anthem rather than risk offending.

Well, spectators at a California softball game, despite living in what is easily the most anti-American state in the Union, were not pleased when an announcer informed them there would be no anthem.

The Fresno Bee reports that during a Friday game between Clovis High and Buchannan High in the Central Section championship, the crowd was informed “There will be no anthem, let’s just play softball.”

Well, says The Daily Wire, “that didn’t go over so well with the crowd, especially on the Memorial Day holiday weekend, when Americans pay homage to all the soldiers who have fought and died to keep the United States free.”

So, clearly in no need of formalities to pay homage to this great nation and the sacrifices of those who have served, the crowd simply proceeded with the National Anthem anyway.

“Fan Tiffany Marquez said she was ‘shocked’ when the announcer said they weren’t going to play it,” the Daily Mail reports. “Within seconds, you could hear people in the crowd singing and the volume of their voices building. There I was, standing in the middle of a true testament to unity and patriotism.”

Bob Kayajanian of the Central Section told the Fresno Bee canceling the anthem had clearly been a mistake.

“The national protocol is the first game of the session you have the national anthem,” he said. “The games after that are just played. We got caught (off-guard). Both the teams turned to face the field and they all started singing the national anthem. They started to play some music and the people took that as the national anthem and they all started singing, which I think is obviously a wonderful thing to show off their patriotism.”

This is exactly why the NFL suffered for two seasons while their wealthy players disrespected the anthem and the flag in a misguided form of protest. Americans, largely, love their country and want to express it, and sports is one of the things that brings us all together, regardless of race, religion, country of origin, or political ideology.

How we handle our differences is what makes us American, and it’s great to see that even in California, proud Americans still go out of their way to stand to honor the flag of this great nation.

‘National Teacher Of The Year’ Makes Call For Violence Against McConnell

Published

A man who was named the “National Teacher of the Year” back in 2019 by the Council of Chief State School Officers recently tweeted that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s neighbors should rip a page out of the playbook the neighbor who assaulted Sen. Rand Paul and violently attack McConnell. According to Rodney Robinson this would make such an individual a “true Kentucky hero.” The neighbor who assaulted Sen. Paul left him with six broken ribs which made it necessary for doctors to remove a part of his lung. Robinson tweeted, “Who are Mitch McConnell’s neighbors? I’m just saying Rand Paul’s neighbor did what a true Kentucky hero should do. It’s your turn to step up.” https://twitter.com/KyleKashuv/status/1344435826688745474 via Daily Wire: Paul’s wife Kelly Ashby Paul issued a fiery response, tweeting, “I am so disgusted by this I have no words. The 2019 ‘National teacher of the Year’ is celebrating the violent assault on my husband that resulted in 6 broken ribs and part of his lung being removed. This hateful thug is calling for more violence on Sen McConnell.” Robinson eventually deleted the tweet and posted a response to the backlash, which he blamed on “conservative bots“: “I made a Mitch McConnell joke today and the conservative bots are real angry. It’s funny because the joke was made early today and no one said a thing until I promoted black medical awareness.” When he was awarded Teacher of the Year in 2019, the Council of Chief State School Officers said of Robinson, “He creates a positive school culture by empowering his students – many of whom have experienced trauma – to become civically minded social advocates who use their skills and voices to affect physical and policy changes at their school and in their communities,” CNN noted.
