Those “pesky Russians” must have just struck again this weekend when a huge trump banner was unfurled at a professional game for “America’s sport,” considering they take the blame for everything. At a Yankees baseball game deep in the heart of the liberal bastion known as New York City, fans were floored when they saw what some dared to display in all it’s glory.
A Sunday game at Yankee Stadium unexpectedly had a moment as supporters of President Donald Trump and his upcoming bid for reelection in 2020 unfurled a massive red, white, and blue banner out in right field. The banner proclaimed – “Re-Elect Donald J. Trump” and “Keep America Great! 2020.”
Somehow, the Russians are no doubt involved. Perhaps Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Chair of the FBI Rod Rosenstein should take action?
According to the Daily Wire –
“The owner of the flag, who would identify himself only as “Dino,” said the flag has the signatures of 56 “patriots.”
He and others unfurled the flag between innings in the 8th, and it stayed up for about 90 seconds. Dino said he had no problems with security — he simply rolled it back up and strolled out.
Dino said the rules are skewed toward liberals. “Somewhere along the line, liberals were granted 100% tolerance when it comes to messaging,” he said, which includes saying “F-Trump in front of billions, smashing Trump’s star, sporting events, talk shows, bloody heads in effigy, they are without rules!”
“At the same time conservatives are granted 0% level of tolerance when it comes to messaging, even in a positive manner. We are supposed to be oppressed and fearful of liberals? Well not me, no way, no how,” Dino said.”
Naturally, word traveled of the unexpected banner unfurling. Dina Berliner tweeted of the events that occurred – “Not even baseball is devoid of politics now. Trump 2020 sign unfurled at the Yankee game during the 8th inning.”

Another twitter user pointed out in a tweet – “Typically Liberals – Democrats are not sports fans! – unless everybody is being rewarded a trophy for participation. So! displaying a huge Trump for 2020 banner at a Yankees game supports a vast majority of the Yankees game attendees.”

To the asshole who just unferled a "Re-elect Trump 2020: Make America Great Again" sign and hung it over the side of the loge in right field at the #Yankees game in between innings: You are disappointing, and so is your floral shirt and cowboy hat.

AOL.com pointed out how so many people talk about how professional sports should stay out of politics but admitted it was getting difficult to separate the two.
AOL reports – “For all the cries of “stick to sports” from those who view athletic events as a respite from the world of politics, even the hardliners must admit it’s getting hard to separate the two.
It’s especially hard to avoid combining state and sports when fans are openly campaigning at the ballpark.”
AOL added that it was made more difficult to separate the two since the “midterm elections” had not yet occurred, as well as pointing out Outfielder Aaron Judge was listed on the disabled list making it a tough stretch.
“Granted, the midterm elections haven’t occurred yet, so it’s hard to think past this year, but the Yankees should really focus on getting to October before they set their sights on November.
With Aaron Judge on the disabled list, and New York still five games back of the Red Sox in the American League East, it’d be silly to start looking this far ahead. The trade deadline hasn’t even passed yet. And August is always a tough stretch with every contending team searching high and low for momentum.
There hasn’t been any word on the fans who brought the banner to the game or how long it was allowed to stay up. With Donald Trump having won just 5 percent of the vote in The Bronx in the 2016 election, the more curious question here is how did the banner make it into Yankee Stadium at all?”
The flag made a previous appearance in June of 2018 at a Broadway performance of the Robert De Niro-directed musical “A Bronx Tale,”. Dino claimed this “Make America Great Again” random flagging also, standing up during a curtain call and hoisting up the “Keep America Great!” flag.

The times we live in. At the end of A Bronx Tale, a man turned around and faced the audience to show us how big of a pair he has. He was escorted shortly after. It's sad that people can't enjoy a beautiful show and embrace its unifying message without politicizing it. #broadway pic.twitter.com/6tVN4Qf4d6

Joe Del Vicario tweeted of the flag’s appearance on Broadway – “The times we live in. At the end of A Bronx Tale, a man turned around and faced the audience to show us how big of a pair he has. He was escorted shortly after. It’s sad that people can’t enjoy a beautiful show and embrace its unifying message without politicizing it.”
The New York Post reports –
“‘Several people in attendance took to social media to document what happened Saturday night at the end of the 8 p.m. showing of “A Bronx Tale” — which is directed by De Niro and four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks.
Photos posted on Twitter showed the Trump supporter standing up in the front row with the “Keep America Great” campaign flag in his hands as cast members take their final bow.
“TRUMP 2020,” the flag said.
People in the crowd, however, looked like they couldn’t have cared less.
In the photos posted online, almost everyone in the first few rows has their eyes locked on the stage, including the people right next to the man. His demonstration appears to be a direct response to the “F–k Trump” comments that De Niro made during the Tony Awards last week.
“It’s sad that people can’t enjoy a beautiful show and embrace its unifying message without politicizing it,” Del Vicario said.’

LeBron Confesses To Being Racist And Proud In Nasty Warning To ‘White People’ In America
Lebron James is the poster boy NBA player famously known for having a freakish talent on the court, but also by being the guy who constantly switches teams, flops on the court like a soft loaf of bread, complains about air conditioning, does not have as many championship rings as Michael Jordan, isn’t clutch in the playoffs, not fully funding the “Promise” school that uses him as their advertisement, and now he has a bizarre message about white people that might have some fans and haters wondering what’s going on with the mega-rich athlete.
James is making moves in the off-season with his mostly taxpayer-funded public school, which seems to be a public school giving away bikes as a gimmick and maybe some tuition money, but how sustainable is that over the long-run? He’s also making headlines another way by admitting that he didn’t really seem to like white people and viewed them “suspiciously” as well as not wanting to be around them.
Sounds a little bit racist, right? Part of why he says this is because he was raised by a family who might now be considered racist as the upbringing he had seemed centered on thinking that white people were no good. I’m pretty sure Lebron James isn’t 80-years-old and a victim of the era where black and white people used different water fountains, but maybe his parents were still mentally stuck in that racist era that people are ashamed of, but are now happy to be beyond that nonsense.
“NBA star LeBron James recently admitted that, due to his upbringing, he initially viewed whites suspiciously, and did not want to be around white people until he learned to give them a chance.
“James made his admission on HBO’s The Shop talk show saying that when he first began attending an exclusive, mostly white, private high school in Akron, Ohio, he was not very keen on having to talk to white people, according to TMZ.
“In fact, James says that when he first started attending the school, he did not want to make any white friends among his classmates.
“Took me a while to adjust to it … I was like, I’m not f*cking with white people, that was my initial thought to white America,” James admitted.
“The newly minted Los Angeles Laker admitted that his “institutionalized” upbringing in the black community taught him that whites did not want what was best for him.
“I’m going to this school to play ball, and that’s it,” James said of his introduction at 14 years of age to white people. “I don’t want nothing to do with white people, I don’t believe that they want anything to do with (me),” he said. “Me and my boys we going to high school together and we here to hoop.”
“It took me a little while to kind of adjust to it,” James added.
“But, Maverick Carter, James’ business partner and friend, added that by the end of that first year, James’ friends from the hood and his new white friends from school were all enjoying each other’s company on a regular basis.”
Are people still raising their kids in an institutionalized way? Perhaps. Are people in urban areas less focused on education and more focused on looking cool and being popular? Absolutely. When there are households with eight children by multiple men and the woman refuses to work, and the men have taken off, and no one is there to raise the children properly or instill any concept of “education is important,” then what chance do those kids have? If they’re not talented like Lebron James, then they have no chance at life and end up living a lifestyle riddled with crime and low grades and thinking cops are out to get them. That’s how a lot of children in urban environments are raised and it’s sad.
Not every kid will be a freakish athlete like Lebron. Maybe one in every million becomes a pro athlete, so there’s basically no chance and anyone dreaming about it is wasting their time.
Is Lebron James racist now? Doubtful. He probably grew out of that once he realized that we are no different. Our talents might vary, but we are all humans. Maybe Lebron finally realized that, but maybe not.
Out of all the gimmicky things he has done and all the whining, this is the first time that I’ve actually had any respect for him. For him to admit this was a pretty big thing to own up to. For once Lebron James was likable because he was extremely honest about his upbringing, even if it was embarrassing and controversial.
However, as soon as I’m done writing this, then I’ll go back to being a hater again.
I can see through his gimmicks and inability to be loyal to a city with his talent. That’s something we didn’t have to worry about with Michael Jordan, which is why Lebron won’t ever be the greatest.
NFL Team Replaces American Flag With Enraging New Version – Grossly Unacceptable
As TV ratings dwindle, stadiums suffered from low attendance this weekend – as photos of thousands of empty seats make their way around social media, and football season gears up, players choosing to take a knee in protest during the National Anthem shows no sign of abating. Meanwhile, the NFL itself continues to be utterly tone-deaf to the majority of America.
A recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that 54% of Americans polled believe kneeling during the National Anthem is inappropriate. Only 44% state they do not mind the kneeling players, according to the Washington Times. The poll revealed that those that no longer choose to follow the NFL as a result of the protest had grown by 10% since the last time the poll was taken in 2014.
<h4 style=”text-align: center;”><span style=”color: #ff0000;”><strong>Do YOU think we have the best President and First Lady ever? Follow <span style=”color: #0000ff;”><a style=”color: #0000ff;” href=”https://twitter.com/TheAmandaShea” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Amanda Shea on Twitter</a></span> to get RIGHT daily insight!</strong></span></h4>
Even as much of the mainstream media and sports media alike continue to loudly support protests and players insist that it is their First Amendment right to conduct them, it appears that for all intents and purposes they have failed to convince the rest of America of their message. Many have chosen to simply tune out rather than continue to support what they view as complete disrespect for combat veterans, the fallen and their families.
Those choosing to protest and their supporters insist that the protests are not about any offense to the military but while perhaps they do not intend to do so, that is exactly what they are doing. And, since the NFL’s future depends on selling overpriced ad spots to massive corporations looking for a consistent number of eyeballs, alienating any group of viewers, for whatever reason, is just bad for business.
Consistent with the tone-deaf message of the NFL, the Green Bay Packers management made an epic blunder in their recent choice to display a rather odd looking variation on the American flag. During the pre-game ceremony, Green Bay Packers displayed a made-up version of the American flag during the National Anthem, which was three solid color stripes with the blue stripe containing the stars.
Social media exploded with those fans that still choose to follow the NFL and the Packers with commentary ranging from that “what in the world is that?” to “that’s not my flag!”

The message was loud and clear. That is not the American flag and the Green Bay Packers should get rid of this banner immediately. Perhaps this might be the one occasion where taking a knee during the National Anthem might be acceptable and appropriate?
Pictures of the pregame ritual before the Green Bay Packers-Buffalo Bills matchup on Sunday went viral after several fans at Lambeau Field snapped photos of a red, white and blue flag with modified stars and stripes.
Either way, it seems Green Bay got the message as the team announced directly after the game that it will no longer use the “banner,” according to Fox 11.

As the local news affiliate reports:
“During the National Anthem, the team used a red, white and blue banner. The banner had stars on the blue stripe.
“It’s not American, not American at all,” said Sandy Austin. “There are a lot of people who have quit the NFL because of the pre-game stuff and all that’s going on.”
“In a statement, Packers spokesman Aaron Popkey said the banner was not meant to represent the American flag.
“‘The banner used during Sunday’s pregame ceremony supplemented the three U.S. flags on the roof of the stadium and the flag carried by the color guard on the field. We’ve used such displays from time to time in the past when other pregame elements take up a significant portion of the field. To avoid causing confusion, we will not be using such displays in the future.'”
The #GreenBayPackers used this for the #American flag in pregame festivities! I guess it’s not enough to disrespect the flag by kneeling now the @NFL allows a team to completely reconstruct our national flag! Reason enough to #BoycottTheNFL! @RealJamesWoods @realDonaldTrump pic.twitter.com/xSln7G2qgV
— John Cremeans (@JCremeans) September 30, 2018
According to Packers management, the University Of Wisconsin marching band featured approximately 200 members and they claim the marching band took up too much of the field to unveil the entire full American flag.
But that explanation was not flying for many Americans and the Green Bay Packers will no longer use the fictional flag banner. For the most part, the Packers have not chosen to actively participate in the “take the knee” protests during the National Anthem though they did choose to lock arms during one Thursday night game last season.
— David Croom (@dailycallout) September 30, 2018
NFL franchise owners’ support for the “take the knee” protests appear to be very much contingent on ratings and revenues, and many believe they will only continue to tolerate the protests as long as they do not negatively impact the bottom line. Case in point, the almost immediate decision to cease using the pseudo-flag in the representation of America.
NFL owners are nothing if not businessmen, so as Americans continue to hit them in their wallets by voting with their dollars, choosing to tune out or simply not attend the games, nothing is likely to change. Until attendance declines precipitously or it can be determined that the protests have directly impacted the bottom line and/or a corresponding decline in television ratings, they are unlikely to put their foot down.
