Published

On June 24, 2020, the Tulsa Athletic team announced that it is changing the opening song at all home games to allegedly “ensure an inclusive environment for athletes, supporters and the community” according to a report by KJRH. .

Tulsa Athletic is a member of the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) and an American soccer team based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Tulsa Athletic is part of the NPSL’s Heartland Conference and plays all home games at Veterans Park in Tulsa.

Sonny Dalesandro, the co-owner of Tulsa Athletic, floated the idea of changing the opening song to promote an inclusive community in the soccer sphere.

“‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ lyrics and meaning, more specifically the third verse, ‘No refuge could save the hireling and slave / From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave…’ does not align with the values of the teams”, declared Tulsa Athletic officials.

Instead, Tulsa Athletic will play “This Land is Your Land” at home games from now on.

Dalesandro made the following statement:

From our beginning, we have developed a culture of inclusion and acceptance at Tulsa Athletic. We live in a country that allows us to freely speak our voice. We utilize this right as a club to continually try and improve our team and community. We believe ‘This Land Is Your Land’ not only captures a powerful patriotic sentiment, but that it does so in a far more inclusive way. The song speaks to this country being built and shared by every person of every race, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation. It represents a future Tulsa Athletic is committed to striving for.

America’s culture war is engulfing every aspect of American life. No venue will be spared at this point.

The many sports Americans enjoy will now become launchpads for all sorts of politically correct experiments. Without a serious Right to confront this radicalism in the cultural and political spheres, the Left will continue to neuter American organizations one-by-one.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
