Welp, the Iron Front flag mess is blowing up again.
Emerald City Supporters walked out at halftime after members were thrown out for flying an IF flag.
They just kicked out the head of gameday ops, made @WeAreECS take down the iron front symbols which are up to support inclusion for our players from all over the world. This is a sad moment. #SoundersMatchday#AUnitedFront pic.twitter.com/7Ljomh2vzB— Emily Cummings (@emilyrcummings) September 15, 2019
Also, fans got thrown out in Minnesota for flying IF flags.
Soccer organizations all over the world: We will not tolerate racism! Our fans must support players of all races and religions!
Fans: fly unity flags to support players
Soccer orgs: Not like that!
Any mention that fans in other countries regularly display Fascist symbols? Hell, some clubs were founded by Fascists and still wave banners and chant Fascist slogans. But that's perfectly acceptable.
I hope this blows up right in the face of MLS and especially the trans.
I stand with my fellow supporters in fighting this terrible language but I also question the symbol choice in some ways...
https://www.twincities.com/2019/09/1...-one-ejection/However, the Red Loons, a politically left-leaning supporters group, estimated 10 to 15 fans were escorted out of the stadium for this reason and said others walked out with them. A Red Loons spokesperson said “everyone was respectful to Allianz staff throughout.”
No offense, I’m not exactly believing MNUFC’s official take considering they have the harshest policy against the IF flag (not even allowing clothing with the image).
NYCFC had far-right, fascist skinhead supporters groups causing trouble and NYCFC and the league refuse to do anything about it.
The MLSPA has already come out against the policy:
The MLSPA supports the efforts of its fan/supporters' groups to overturn MLS's overly vague ban on "political" speech at MLS games. (1/2)— MLSPA (@MLSPA) August 13, 2019
But the biggest thing is that the CBA is up at the end of the year and the players could potentially strike. What’s the biggest thing any work action needs? Public support, in this case from the fans.
Opposition to Naziism is now controversial. Thanks, Republicans.
