Doesn’t exist at the professional baseball games.
This seems especially appropriate during the July 4th weekend: Major League Baseball (MLB) — joining Disney, Sea World, and Sesame Street — has officially banned Dion Cini from all baseball stadiums, simply because he routinely came to games and displayed a “Trump Won Save America” banner.
Cini’s Twitter profile describes him as “Guerilla Marketeer, Political Consultant, Founder of OperationFlagDrop & ‘Professional Provocateur.’”
He has skated with his flag on Wollman Ice Rink, where he was physically assaulted, even though the Trump organization operated Wollman Rink. Cini also unfurled what is rumored to be the world’s largest Trump flag on the front of Trump Tower in Manhattan in March of this year. Cini even dropped a “Trump Pride” flag one day after the end of Pride Month.
Cini has now been banned by MLB stadiums and Disney parks, Sea World, and Sesame Street. As per his Twitter account, he has no plans of stopping the flag drops.
Cini was definitely doing this activity to promote his business, which sells American flags banners, but so what? He was also expressing his opinion about the November 2020 election, something that under the Bill of Rights he has the right to do. Moreover, in none of his stunts has he done anything to hurt anyone else, or prevented anyone from viewing the games. If anything, others have oppressed him by attacking him for doing so.
The physical attacks on Cini illustrate again the intolerant nature of too many people from the left, many of whom now run the country’s biggest corporations. They don’t simply disagree with Trump and the Republican Party, they want to destroy anyone associated with that party or its political positions. Opposition to Democratic Party rule must not be permitted, in any way, shape, or form.
Political round-ups: Coming to your town in America soon!
Persecution is now cool! And because this type of minor and very incomplete censorship is not very effective, and in fact acts to attract even more attention to those who have been oppressed, expect the censorship and blackballing to intensify. If simply banning someone from events or businesses is insufficient, maybe arresting them will work better!
Don’t believe me? Then you know nothing of history. This is always how petty dictators transition into genocidal maniacs. You just have to give them time, and look the other way when they begin bullying someone else.
