Somehow, the original American flag has become a topic of contention in American political life, with major Presidential candidates comparing it to a racist and white nationalist symbol.
The ‘Betsy Ross’ flag representing the original 13 colonies in North America was shelved from a Nike shoe design, who caved to politically correct and anti-American pressure in removing an original American flag-themed shoe product. The leftist company faced a swift backlash, with the state of Arizona canceling a planned tax subsidy deal to create a Nike shoe plant in the city of Goodyear.
Philadelphia Phillies all-star slugger and outfielder Bryce Harper isn’t having any of it, and broke out a pair of patriotic cleats honoring the flag in the July 4th game against the Atlanta Braves.
The potential hall-of-famer has broke out patriotic cleats for the Fourth of July before, busting out military-themed athletic shoes in 2016 that featured the insignia of the Army, Marine Corps, Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard.
Harper’s decision to honor America and the flag differs greatly from the manner in which unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick chose to commemorate the holiday, claiming on Twitter that the holiday had nothing to do with him.
“What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence? This Fourth of July is yours, not mine…There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour.”

Harper put the cleats to good use in the Atlanta night game, raking in two hits and and RBI. The Phillies went on to lose the slugfest contest to the Braves, going down 12-6. To many, he comes across as a real winner, honoring America on its day of national independence when many spoiled athletes chose to disrespect national American heritage.
The former Nationals “five-tool player” has generally avoided politics throughout his career, but is known as a devout Mormon who avoids caffeinated substances.

Pro-Trump UFC Fighter Offers to Fight on White House Lawn During Coronavirus Pandemic
Colby Covington wants to put on a show for his fans.
While most professional sports have shut down, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is still hoping to put on mixed martial arts fights during the coronavirus pandemic.
UFC promoter Dana White intends to put on his UFC 249 pay-per-view broadcast next month despite major problems in finding a venue and fighters willing to participate in the event. He refuses to say where the event, which is scheduled to take place on Apr. 18, will ultimately take place.
“Believe me, people have been talking about that,” White said of the potential for holding UFC 249 on an aircraft carrier. “I haven’t resorted to that yet, but that’s probably coming soon.”
White, an avid supporter of President Donald Trump who hosted the President at a UFC event last year, blames the fake news media for making it so difficult for him to promote a fight during the pandemic.
“A lot of these media guys are absolute and total f**king scumbags,” he said. “As soon as you let them know what you’re doing, all they’re trying to do is f**k up everything that you’ve worked. So I’ve literally told every one of these guys to go f**k themselves and I’m not telling any of them what I’m doing, where I’m doing it.”
Former UFC champion and outspoken bad boy Colby Covington has a suggestion for White on where to hold the event: the White House lawn. Covington offered to fight another former UFC champion Tyron Woodley in a free exhibition at any time.
“The offer still stands UFC. I’ll go full Teddy Roosevelt & beat the breaks off Tyron “The Chosen One” Woodley live from The White House lawn! Save sports and make it free on ESPN for the people! Im in such a giving mood I’ll even arrange a tour of the oval office for Tyrone, since Obama never did,” he wrote in a Facebook post on Monday.
Covington is one of the most outspoken Trump supporters in all of professional sports, building his entire public image around his support of the President.
“The haters are saying I’m the underdog,” Covington said in 2018. “You know who else was the underdog? The ruler of our nation Donald Trump. And just like Trump I’m gonna grab these p**sies and put them in their place.”
In an iconic photograph, Covington can be seen presenting his former UFC title to President Donald Trump in the Oval Office.
“He didn’t have to spend as much time as he did with us, and he legitimately gave us 30 minutes – just (expletive), told us some funny stories, he likes chicks, he likes wrestling, he likes MMA. And he was just telling us stories and just being a regular guy. He’s down to earth. He’s just a regular guy,” Covington said following his meeting with the President.
Covington hopes to make the UFC great again, and give lockdown-weary Americans something to excite them, with a patriotic display of ultimate fighting outside of the White House.
