NASCAR has announced that it will no longer respect the freedom of expression of its fan base, and ban anyone from displaying the Confederate Flag at their events.
NASCAR made it official on Wednesday, announcing in a statement that the Confederate Flag “runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and our industry.”

Former chairman Brian France tried to make this decision back in 2015, but its many southern fans revolted as a result of the proposal. NASCAR seized upon the violent Black Lives Matter uprising as their opportunity to piss on the heritage of its core fanbase.
Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr., a mediocre African-American NASCAR racer with no victories, demanded during a recent appearance on CNN that his feelings were more important than the freedom of the folks whose love for racing drives the sport.
“No one should feel uncomfortable when they come to a NASCAR race. It starts with confederate flags,” Wallace said.
The racing giant has been in the process of selling out their fans for years, which Big League Politics has chronicled. NASCAR turned their backs on the Bill of Rights and Constitution last year:
NASCAR is turning against the 2nd Amendment, rejecting pro-gun advertisements after citing a “gradual shift” on gun rights.
“We just heard from NASCAR on a number of gun related ads and unfortunately, due a gradual shift in NASCAR’s position on guns, these ads must be edited/changed—especially those that are depicted as assault-style rifles/sniper rifles,” wrote National Event Publications, the NASCAR’s official sales media agent, to the K-Var Armory.
“NASCAR is still open to some of the less controversial gun accessories, concealed carry, or classes,” they added.
K-Var noted that there is nothing “gradual” about what is being done. NASCAR has allowed advertisements without any restrictions from gun manufacturers until this year.
“NASCAR has allowed ads from firearms manufacturers for several years. AK-47s, AR-15s, and scoped rifles have all been featured in the past, so I guess, by that statement, it can only mean that NASCAR is marching toward a complete anti-gun stance—it is just slow rolling it for some reason,” K-Var writes on their blog.
K-Var notes that NASCAR is likely to suffer immense backlash, considering many of their supporters are rural supporters of the 2nd Amendment, similar to Yeti and Dick’s Sporting Goods as a result of their embrace of political correctness.
NASCAR may be the next brand to fall into the “get woke, go broke” trap after alienating their fans with this move to ban the Confederate Flag.
Ohio High School Football Players Reinstated After Suspension For Entering Field With Thin Blue Line, American Flags
Why were they even suspended?
Two Little Miami, Ohio high school football players who were suspended from their team for entering a game while carrying the Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line(commemorating firefighters) flags have been freed from suspension, after community members expressed outrage at the punishment of the two young men.
Jarad Bentley and Brady Williams had been given an indefinite suspension from the Little Miami High School football team for carrying the two flags onto the field before a game, apparently violating a rule against political symbols. The two seniors reject the notion that they were making a political statement, and one of the boys had spoken of his intention to honor first responders, such as his own father, on the anniversary of 9/11.
Two Little Miami football players pay the price for civil disobedience. They were told not to carry onto the field thin blue line and thin red line flags at their 9/11 game. They did anyway. The school has now suspended them from the team indefinitely. #ThinBlueLine #ThinRedLine pic.twitter.com/19y9GAvaxr

After concerned parents and community members organized a protest event to stand with Williams and Bentley, the Little Miami School Board reversed its decision, freeing the senior players from suspension.
The President of the school board seemed keen to establish that the institution “supports police,” perhaps feeling the pressure from angry parents displeased to see the patriotic young men kicked from the football team for an innocuous display of patriotism.

They still might face some consequences, and reportedly team officials had commanded the players not to enter the field with the flags. Their punishment will be settled within the athletic department’s code of conduct.
College and high school sports teams put on elaborate displays in support of the left-wing Black Lives Matter movement all the time. Pro-police and firefighter flags are not a political statement by a long shot. This suspension never should’ve been issued in the first place.
