BREAKING: Pro Sports Team BANS Flag From Stadium

This is a disgrace to this great country…

A professional soccer team in of all places, Salt Lake City, Utah, has banned fans from bringing the Betsy Ross flag to games and asked a fan who brought one to leave, Fox 13 reports:

A Utah County family that brought a Betsy Ross flag to a Real Salt Lake soccer game is speaking out, after stadium staff asked them to take the flag down.

RSL team leadership said the flag is banned, and indicated that it doesn’t fit with their mission of inclusion and unity.

Randolf and Diana Scott have RSL season tickets, and attend every home game at Rio Tinto Stadium.

“Soccer is just a big part of our life,” Diana said.

Most known for his brightly colored mohawk sometimes painted like an American flag, Randolf stands right up front during games. He brings a bag with RSL swag, big chain necklaces, and an American flag that he waves.

At recent home games, he’s gotten more attention than usual because of a new item he added to his game gear.

It’s the commonly named Betsy Ross flag, which was an early version of the American flag. It has 13 stars in a circle, versus the 50 stars featured today.

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

When they swapped the 50 stars for the circle of 13 two home games ago in early August, it ignited a firestorm against Randolf on social media.

When they brought the flag to the game again last weekend, complaints escalated and stadium staff approached the couple, to ask them to take the flag down.

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

This is too dumb for words.

What is is about symbols of our past or national pride are all of the sudden considered racist?

I think it’s the fact that pride in America and our history is offensive to those on the left.

As stupid and offensive as this anti-American policy is, the team confirmed it’s real:

“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. 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.”

– Andy Carroll, Chief Business Officer, Real Salt Lake

No American who loves his country should ever have anything to do with professional soccer.

Soccer is not a real American sport anyway, lets get back to real all-American sports like football, baseball and basketball.

Skip soccer, just forget about it.

      Or an antifa flag or an isis flag. I doubt they’d say jack shit about those flags as anti-American as they are.

      Or an ISIS flag? There would have been nothing said. If people are so stupid as to pay this team with their money and time, then they deserve what they get. Walk out on these people. Not worth giving up your moral and core beliefs.

    They just want everyone to feel welcomed…..oh, except for the Scott’s! Rather than suggest to those complaining that they just not look at the flag, they will offend the Scott’s to the point of asking them to leave. I think it is time for the Scott’s to give up their season tickets!

    Simply decline to take it down. If they want to ban all flags, they’re within their rights. If flags are permitted, tell the stadium staff you want their names and the name of the stadium agent for service of process. They’re breaching their contract if they otherwise permit flags.

    Obviously, RSL soccer team only wants to include foreign minorities and NOT American patriots, so there is NO “inclusivity” in their mission. Utah folks need to boycott and abandon that team; let them play IN SOME OTHER COUNTRY.

      Exactly right. The left is always boycotting businesses so why don’t those who object to someone not allowing them freedom of speech, boycott. Hell with their season tickets or team. I’m still not watching an NFL game since 2017. Why are those who respect this country and want to fly an American flag, not being supported. Walk away people. These organizations and players don’t not deserve your money or your respect.

    Why would anyone in their right mind treat CANCEROUS behaviors with INCLUSION? “INCLUSION” is designed to confuse and create convolution to permit the destruction of PREEMINENCE! Preeminence is the enemy of perverted INCLUSION. All men are not created equal because all behaviors are not created equal. Preeminence means understanding and behaving in favor of the good v. the evil; for the right v. the wrong; etc. If being the best was subject to INCLUSION, the word BEST would be rendered meaningless and irrelevant.

    I BET THEY WOULDN’T DOP THE SAME TO SOMEONE HOLDING THE RAINBOW FLAG, OR AN ACRICAN FLAG, OR A BLACK PANTHER FLAG. HOW ABOUT FLAGS OF RUSSIA, IRAN, THE TALI BAHN (SP) I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD SHOW UP[ WITH THE ROSS FLAG AND LET THEM EMPTY THE STADIUM. IT WAS THE FIRST FLAG OF AMERICA WITHOUT ANY OF THE MODERN LIBERAL “READINGS” THAT ARE ALSO RESPONSIBLE NOW FOR PEOPLE PROTESTING THE “WHITE STICK MAN” ARE TRAFFIC LIGHTS AS BEING RACIST. AMERICA IS GOING TO HELL AND THESE KINDS OF THINGS ARE ACCELERATING THE DESTRUCTION OF THE NATION IN THE NAME OF BULLIES WHO PRACTICE THEIR OWN BRAND OF “LIBERALISM/ SOCIALISM
    COMMUNISM” AS TEHY DESTROY THE US FROM WITHIN.

      You won’t get enough to show up with flags though it is a brilliant idea to see 10,000 or more Betsy Ross flags in the stands. Would be a really patriotic moment. I’m sure they wouldn’t risk losing that many people.

    UTAH WAS DRUG FREE THANKS TO THE MORMAN CHURCH’S OPPOSITION. IT WAS ALMOST A DRUG FREE SATE. BUT IT DREW THE ATTENTION OF THE CARTELS AND THEY INFILTRATED THE CULTURE AND NOW UTAH HAS A BIG DRUG PROBLEM. NOW THE COMMUNISTS ARE LOOKING AT UTAH AND THE AMERICAN FLAG.

    SINCE WWII THE COMMUNISTS NEVER STOPPED INFILTRATING THE USA. EVERY DAY THE ACLU IS IN THE COURTS UNDERMINING THE CONSTITUTION. GUS HALL THE LAST COMMUNIST CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT TOLD THE PARTY TO TAKE OVER THE DEMOCRAT PARTY. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. 1.2 MILLION LEGAL IMMIGRANTS COME INTO THE USA. THE LAND OF LEGAL IMMIGRANTS. 1.2 MILLION AMERICAN BABIES A YEAR HAVE THEIR HEADS CUT OFF. THE COMMUNISTS HAVE YOU WORRIED ABOUT GLOBAL WORMING.PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE BLOOD SHED. WE CAN’T KILL AMERICAN TROOPS BUT WE CAN KILL THE NEXT GENERATION. DRUGS AND ABORTION DO IT BEST.
    SPIRIT OF AMERICA PARTY RADIO SHOW ON YOU TUBE. SAY A PRAYER FOR THE 200 MOTHERS WHO DIED WITH THEIR BABIES ON 911. NOT ONE KIDS NAME ON THE WALL NEXT TO MOM. 911 WE FORGET NUTTIN. SAY A PRAYER FOR ALL WHO DIED ON 911.THE MEDIA AND PUBLIC SCHOOLS DON’T WANT YOU TO RECALL. IT IS NOT PART OF AMERICAN HERITAGE. WHAT HERITAGE?

    The entire situation is utter ignorance on the hoof. There is nothing wrong with the Betsy Ross Flag. If some self-serving liberal doesn’t like it then they can leave. If they are going to ban the Betsy Ross Flag then all flags should be banned as well. Otherwise, they will be showing their bias. Maybe Utah has been taken over by bad outside forces. CleanUp time. The last resort is
    the Scott family can sue for the right to fly their flag. If there is a single flag flying then they have the right to fly theirs.
