  • Betsy Ross Flag: Symbol Of Hate!

    Note to white supremacist groups, please start using the rainbow flag at your events. Thank you....

    Couple says soccer stadium officials demanded they take down their Betsy Ross flag during game because it had become a symbol for hate groups

    Utah couple Randolf and Diana Scott say that a local soccer stadium threatened to eject them from the stadium if they didn't put away their Betsy Ross American flag.

    Betsy Ross was a Puritan abolitionist...

      So do any for real hate groups actually fly the Betsy Ross flag? And if so, who cares?

      The KKK flies the regular flag. does that make it a hate symbol?

      Note to white supremacist groups, please start using the rainbow flag at your events. Thank you....
      Exactly. If they actually DID, the LBGT wouldn't stop using it. They would just be mad that a hate group is trying to steal their symbol.

          A hate group already stole the rainbow symbol.

                If you love and tolerate them, yes.

                  I did a google search for KKK betsy ross flag and the only image I can find is of a patch that says Klu Klux Klan at the top and has a betsy ross flag and a confederate flag on it. But the only place I see this image is on twitter feeds of liberals saying, "see they do use the betsy ross flag" - so I am not buying it.

                  I also searched for KKK flag and got a lot of results with the KKK's own flag, the confederate flag and the modern American flag, but none of the betsy ross flag.

                  If I search for White supremacist betsy ross flag, I get a bunch of images of regular white people with the flag, that links mostly to news articles claiming white supremacists use it.

                  Searching for Nazi Betsy Ross flag I find two photos, both from the same rally, of some nazis holding the flag in some march.

                  This entire thing is just made up. Like the whole "milk is racist" thing.

                    Sure it is made up, but the real goal is to go after Old Glory, this is just the the opening salvo.

                    This goes back to 2015:

                      There is an easy solution for those who are triggered by the flag: leave.

                        The subreddit for this soccer team seems to be siding with the ban. Here's one user's take,
                        "I confronted the guy with the flag the first match he brought it. I went up in a non agressive way because I knew to some people its not a white supremacist symbol. I asked him if it was his flag, he said yes. I asked him why he had it. He said because he loved america. Which is funny because that in not the american flag its a colonial flag. If you love america fly the american flag. Then I told him that the flag is adopted by ultea right wing militia movements, is used by the KKK and other bone head rascist types. Then his friend and wife were like hey we are not rascist. I then proclaimed that i didnt say they were rascist and that I jad obly asked two questions. 1. If it was their flag 2 if they knew it was used by white supremacists. They then got super aggressive and told me to leave so I did. I didnt want to have a fight. 5 minutes later event staff came up to me amd tried to eject me from the match because. Mr bettsy ross flag guy claimed I had assulted him. I told event staff what actually happened and how more than anything I was curious as to who this person was and went and talked to him. He sits in the front row. Event staff watched me talk to him and knew I didnt actually assult him. They went and talked to the event staff where he sits and they co firmed my story of just asking some questions and they left me alone. Based on him amd the people he was withs reaction and how defensive/ agressive they got when I asked my first question. They know full well what the flag is used for and brought it for those reasons. Hes a ****"

                        That started a debate over whether or not the Betsy Ross flag is racist.

                        A slightly more sane Redditor posted this,
                        "Heís a ref and player for a menís league I play in, and Iíve never heard him be racist or foul mouthed at all. Heís been nothing but nice. His wife isnít even white. Iím thinking itís more ignorance to the issue than racism. But thatís only seeing him for a couple of hours a week playing soccer so I donít know."

                        Which was met with the reply,
                        "Please ask him to stop making Utah look stupid on a national stage."


                        People be crazy yo.
