Major League Soccer Club Bans Betsy Ross American Flag, Calls It A Symbol Of Hate

Just a few months ago, Nike sparked outrage across the nation by folding to Colin Kaepernick when he suggested that the Betsy Ross American flag was racist.

Now a major soccer league is following suit.

Major League Soccer club bans Utah couple from waving ‘Betsy Ross flag’ at games

For many Americans, the 13-star “Betsy Ross flag” is a symbol of America’s victorious fight for independence from Britain.

But two die-hard soccer fans in Utah say Major League Soccer’s Real Salt Lake asked them to take down a Betsy Ross flag they were waving in the front row at a recent match because the team dubbed the star-spangled banner a “symbol for hate groups.”

Randolf and Diana Scott, season ticket holders who have attended every home game for the team at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah, came decked out in team jerseys and hats but also brought a version of the original American flag featuring 13 white stars in a circle to represent the union of the original 13 colonies.

“Diana bought it for me actually, because my other flag was kind of old and falling apart,” Randolf told Salt Lake City’s FOX 13.

Stadium personnel asked the couple to take the flag down or risk being asked to leave.

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

Of course, no one cared when the Betsy Ross flag was flown at Obama’s inauguration.

This guy has the right idea.

It’s an important symbol of American history.

Which is precisely why the left hates it.
