    Any liberal who is triggered or offended by an American flag-themed shirt is welcome to kiss my ass. If liberals don't like America, please leave and don't come back. This country was great without you and it will be great again once you're gone.

    Seattle dance squad says they were told American flag shirts made audience members feel 'triggered and unsafe'

    Complainants cited the Israel-Hamas war and transgender issues for their feelings toward the American-flag costumes

    April 10, 2024

    Members of a regional women’s country line dance team were reportedly kicked out of a Seattle dance convention after organizers claimed their American flag-themed shirts made some attendees feel "triggered and unsafe."

    Over the weekend at the Emerald City Hoedown in Seattle, the Borderline Dance team was set to perform, but were essentially told they weren't welcome by organizer Rain Country Dance Association, an LGBTQ+ dance community, over their matching American flag themed shirts, Jason Rantz reported for 770 KTTH.

    "Unfortunately, what our team was met with upon arrival was that our flag tops were offensive to some of the convention goers," the dance group posted to Facebook. "There was a small group that felt ‘triggered and unsafe.'"

    Co-captain Lindsay Stamp spoke with Rantz for The Jason Rantz Show, explaining that their costumes sparked a "small percentage" of complainants who brought up Israel’s war against Hamas and transgender issues.


    "At first we were told we would just be boo’d, yelled at and likely many of them would walk out," the group's Facebook post explained. "This did not deter us. But then we were given an ultimatum. Remove the flag tops and perform in either street clothes (which most didn’t bring as they traveled there in their uniforms) or they would supply us with ECH shirts from years past… Or, don’t perform at all, which effectively was asking us to leave."

    "We don’t speak for our team, we speak on behalf of them so the choice was theirs," the post said. "As we knew would happen because there really was no choice in our minds, it was a unanimous NO."

    Stamp told Rantz that members of the team were shocked after they spent only 30 minutes at the venue before they started receiving complaints, adding that the team is patriotic, but doesn't make statements about politics.

    "My team doesn’t take a political stance. We came to dance," she said. "We’re a patriotic group. We support our military, our veterans, our first responders. We’re a group of patriots."

    In the Facebook post, the group said they were not the only one that received this treatment.

    "Our friends, West Coast Country Heat, who were also scheduled to dance for the convention that evening also did not perform as they too proudly don the colors of our country in the same spirit of patriotism that we do," the post said. "Both of our teams stood in solidarity and put actions to words."

    But, the group said watching the two teams band together was "the greatest performance."

    "These people are strong, resolute and unwavering in their patriotism," the Borderline Dance Team said. "They are the families and friends of people who have suffered the unimaginable so that we may all have our own opinions and sleep soundly in our beds at night. THAT is why we wear the colors. Because although we may not always agree with the current state of things, we recognize that being an American means true FREEDOM."

    "We all understood and accepted this and walked out with class and dignity despite the discrimination we had experienced," the post added.

    The Rain Country Dance Association did not respond to Fox News Digital's request for comment but indirectly addressed the incident on Facebook.

    "Hi y’all! After the close of another amazing Hoedown weekend, we know there are some questions about the Saturday night performance line-up," the post read. "We appreciate y’all giving us the time to clear up misunderstandings and address the situation with people directly involved. We will be posting a follow-up statement later this week once we are able to have those conversations."

    In a Facebook comment, board president Ziadee Cambier said members of the Borderline Dance Team weren’t asked to leave.

    "We will be in continued communication with the captains of the dance teams that were slated to perform Saturday," she wrote. "To clarify, as this was not a competition, no one was disqualified and no one was asked to leave. While we are mending our relationships directly with the dance teams we will be disabling comments on this post. We will be sharing more information later this week, to hopefully clear up any misunderstandings."

    Stamp disagreed and told Rantz she didn't think there was miscommunication.

    "It’s pretty clear to me, there’s always room for error in any situation, but I don’t believe so," she said.

    "I would just love to see more conversations opened about people accepting one another," she added. "About being wholly inclusive. You know, every group of person talks about being inclusive and accepting. And I think that we need to work on being inclusive and accepting of people outside of our immediate comfort zones. I would love to see that."

    Any person that is of the opinion that the "war-labeled" Israel-Hamas CONFLICT is related to...even remotely....a patriotic cause is, well, a Dumazz.

    Let's talk about, briefly please, this transgender issue as it relates to Patriotism.

    In previous Conflicts...2 that I can address....paramilitary/terrorist/mercenary/communist/insurgent/guerilla/killer (choose which label you prefer because it does not matter).....armed groups kidnapped young boys aged generally between 8-14 years and rented/sold/used for their own satisfaction the children for sexual pleasure with adult males.

    I will wait while someone explains to me how these "freedom fighter" groups were exhibiting Patriotism.

    I've got time. Answer at your leisure, and please clarify by referring me to the patriotic Flag these "freedom fighters" proudly fly for all to witness their Patriotism.

    After this is completed, we can then explore the subject of young girls between the ages of 8-20 experiencing the same level of freedom offered by these same groups of "freedom fighters", again with adult males (who actually did not give a damn if it was a boy or a girl) in the name of Patriotism. Note that in one particular Conflict, the age of the woman did not matter at all, and women of 70-80 years old were used in the same manner in the name of Patriotism by the same Armed groups.

    Note that this particular young girl freedom brand of Patriotism was and is practiced in every Armed Conflict in written history.

    It truly sickens me that these overly-offended groups live their lives in relative laps of luxury afforded them by the red, white and blue.... Triggered and unsafe.... Hogwash. These worthless pukes would be on the business end of a trigger if they led their salacious and immoral lives in 2/3's of this planets nations.... Triggered and unsafe my arse.

    Yeah . . . Since when is it society's responsibility to rescue these "triggered" from their insecurities? We all grew thick skin where we needed it . . . why shouldn't they?

    "Thick skin" says the people throwing a fit about hearsay rumors of individuals attending the "Emerald City Hoedown"

    Slow news day I guess

    Get it right, GW. My outrage is not over rumors. It’s over the . . . HYPOCRISY.

    The Bill of Rights guarantees the right of free speech, not the right of you being protected from offensive speech, clothing, or political commentary.

    Yes, I understand. You're outraged over alleged hypocrisy being committed by unnamed parties at the Emerald City Hoedown.

    I keep seeing this take proven right...

    As with so many other liberally-committed offenses, the suppression of evidence doesn't prove it didn't happen.

    That is a smokescreen, Gene..... I have been called a flag waving boomer on this very forum. I believe the OP's question does have merit. Why is there anything less than reverence given to the red, white and blue by the progressive left?

    It is your Right to not be willing to risk your life to protect the Freedoms guaranteed via the U.S. Constitution, that the U.S. Flag represents.

    As I recall, your previous commentary on this Forum is proof that you enthusiastically claim that Right, while your peers took a Round on your behalf, as did countless previous generations, regardless of their political beliefs.

    I have always been curious...who exactly broke your Tonka Toy, that caused such a life-long mental aberration?

    Nah, I totally believe this incident is real, I just can't imagine caring this much about the Emerald City Hoedown. Or were you guys potentially imagining scenarios outside this incident based on it? Who could blame you, that was the original article's intended effect.

    Honestly, you've gotta think about it in terms of patriotism and nationalism. Patriotism is good and fine, but the problem is that toxic nationalism is frequently promoted by "patriots" who try to blur the line between the 2.

    Good Lord.
    Well, back to my previous assessment of your erudite statements of philosophy:

    Sort of like how liberals blur the line between pornography and grade school textbooks?

    Oh, I see said the blind man. Jussie Smollett, hands up don’t shoot, Russian collusion, anything originating from Adam Shiff. These are all things conservatives must believe in.

    I too have visions of dreamed up urinating Russian hookers as well as Russian collusion fantasies when I read this….. Sort of a pot calling the kettle black argument being made here…. Fact is Gene, the smoke and deception game is played both ways. You are astute enough to know that. And until “we the people” get smart enough to realize that we are ALL being manipulated like pawns on a chessboard by those in power, we will continue to decay in this cesspool that they have our nation mired in. Believe it.

    Interesting perspective from Liberals, that conservatives just imagine situations that never happen and then get mad at them.

    Liberals . . . always ignoring the threat of the slippery slope . . . until they're at the bottom, looking back up.
