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.
DC Statehood Incoming: House Set to Vote Within Days
Biden and his team are wasting no time setting up ways to stack the electoral deck in their favor.
Joe Biden and his cohorts in the Democratic Party are doing everything in their power to never lose another election again, and they are doing so with all the subtlety and grace of a three-legged hyena that stepped into a yellow-jacket nest. First and foremost, there are their recently-revealed plans to pack the Supreme Court with several new justices during Joe Biden’s first term. Now they’re looking to make good on their long-held pipe dream of making Washington DC its own state…and they are wasting no time. The House of Representatives will vote Tuesday on whether to make Washington, D.C., a State. The House Oversight Committee, chaired by Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), voted the bill, H.R. 51, out of committee by a vote of 25-19 to create D.C. statehood Wednesday. But there are likely constitutional issues at play here. The ultimate argument seems to be whether the 23rd Amendment guarantees the federal Capitol at least three electors in presidential elections, Rep. Any Biggs (R-AZ) suggested Wednesday. Biggs’ view is supported by legal scholars, who opposed D.C. statehood’s feasibility without a Constitutional amendment to the 23rd Amendment. The Office of Legal Counsel in 2007 believed it was unconstitutional, the Justice Department under former President Reagan and former President Carter stated the transformation was unconstitutional, and so did Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, when he sat on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. The move is highly controversial, and twenty-two state attorney generals have already sent a stern letter warning President Joe Biden about the danger of moving forward.
Dems Begin Assault on 2A with Bill to Confiscate Suppressors
Here comes the heat from the left.
When it comes to the right to bear arms, there truly is no foreseeable future in which the Constitutional guarantee will disappear entirely. It’s a logical fallacy to suggest otherwise…just look at how well outlawing guns went in Chicago starting back in 1982. There will likely never be a full repeal of the right, either, as the idea of disarming the American people, particularly as Russia and China grow ever bolder in their international devilishness, leaves the world’s greatest nation feeling like sitting ducks. So, instead of working toward a total nullification of the inalienable right, the Democrats simply work to make if more difficult, more annoying, and more expensive to own the sort of firearms equipment that they want. This year will be no exception. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) introduced legislation on Wednesday to ban the sale and possession of firearm suppressors. His legislation, the Help Empower Americans to Respond (HEAR) Act, is co-sponsored by Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), among others. It would ban the importation, sale, manufacture, transfer, and possession of firearm suppressors. Menendez commented on the legislation, saying: Gun silencers are dangerous devices with one purpose and one purpose only – to muffle the sound of gunfire from unsuspecting victims. The sound of gunshots is what signals you to run, hide, take cover, call the police and help others save themselves; however, this is nearly impossible when a gun silencer is used. That is why we must pass the HEAR Act, commonsense legislation that will prevent armed assailants from using these deadly devices to make it easier to shoot and kill another person. Of course, there was no definitive plan as to how confiscation would work, or what the left believes an acceptable amount of casualties would be for…
