America’s premier soccer league, Major League Soccer, has declared the red, white, and blue Betsy Ross flag a “symbol for hate groups” and banned a couple in Utah from waving it at games.
A Utah couple who were in attendance at a Major League Soccer Real Salt Lake game says they were told by stadium officials to put away their Betsy Ross flag because the original flag of the American Revolution is a “symbol for hate groups.”
According to Randolf and Diana Scott, the league now claims that the flag, one of America’s earliest national banners, has been adopted by “hate groups,” according to Fox News.
The pair turned up recently at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah, outfitted in their favorite jerseys and team colors and waving their Betsy Ross Flag.
“Diana bought it for me actually, because my other flag was kind of old and falling apart,” Randolf told Fox.
But the couple says that stadium personnel soon approached them and demanded that they hide their early version of the Stars and Stripes.
