Tulsa’s Premier Soccer League To Play ‘This Land Is Your Land’ Instead of ‘Star-Spangled Banner’

he racially sensitive, politically correct, incorrectly placed apologetic police are showing no signs of slowing down their ridiculous behavior. The American soccer team in Tulsa, Oklahoma has announced they will no longer play “The Star-Spangled Banner” at home soccer matches. Instead, they are opting for a more sensitive “This Land Is Your Land” by Woody Guthrie.

How did they come to this decision? “After carefully reviewing ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ lyrics and meaning, including the third verse which mentions ‘No refuge could save the hireling and the slave / From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave…,’ Tulsa Athletic came to the decision that the song does not align with the club’s core values” the team stated in a press release on their website.

Upon reading the sentence, one may think those lyrics are not even in “The Star-Spangled Banner.” That’s because that verse is rarely if ever, sung at games. That won’t stop Tulsa athletics, which clearly went out of its way to find fault with the song and change an American tradition as some superficial way of showing how “woke” and “in touch” they are.

“Tulsa Athletic does not believe ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ represents or unites their diverse players, fans, and community” states the press release. “From our beginning, we have developed a culture of inclusion and acceptance at Tulsa Athletic,” said co-owner Sonny Dalesandro. “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” said Dalesandro.

“This Land Is Your Land,” Dalesandro believes, “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.” Here’s one interesting tidbit from the press release: “As always, all forms of patriotic expression are welcomed and respected at Tulsa Athletic’s matches.”

Is the team referencing the “patriotic expression” displayed by the protestors, rioters, and looters which arguably inspired Tulsa Athletics to change the song in the first place? If so, we can expect the destruction, incineration, and vandalism to begin soon. Perhaps the Tulsa stadium will even become a “CHOP” zone. Kickoff for this “new tradition” will being with “a special Equality Cup against Minneapolis City at Veterans Park in Tulsa.”

  1. Please let us know who the sponsors of this team are. I will write them a letter or call them to let them know that as long as they support this team, I will not buy any of their products or services. Both sides can play the boycott game. Once they know that those of us who believe in this country’s traditions will fight back then they will pull their funds from this team. With no corporate backing this team will fold.

  2. Now I know what team and sport to no longer follow.

  3. Soccer didn’t originate in the US and has always retained its “we are the world” perspective. If I had kids in school, they’d be playing American sports. And if the coach allowed kneeling during the REAL anthem, my kids would be in advanced computer classes.

  4. I see the large crowd size in the back of the picture is backing their decision.

  5. Tulsa not as red as people thought.

  6. how about “this land is CHOP’s land?”

  7. Will not support their sponsors or anything associated with them! They are foolish women kowtowing to domestic terrorist hate group(black lives matter) and a also ran quarterback!
    Woody guthrie was a communist sympathizer and some of his music, including “this land is your land” reflects his views!
    Hope their league goes out of business!
    Maybe some or all of these women have banged their head on the ground or against another head too many times!

  8. Woody Guthrie was a communist. “This Land Is Your Land” may as well be called “From Each According To His Ability, To Each According To His Needs”. If I lived in Tulsa, I’d make a point to attend the game, and as they play their communist “anthem”, I’d get everyone in the crowd to sing the Star Spangled Banner as loudly as possible…then walk out.

  9. Even his little kids we were taught to love our country our flag even our neighbors. What is grossly lacking in the activities of the lift the corporate moguls the so-called social platforms, is love. There is no love in destroying monuments cultures or peoples lives and businesses.

  10. Woody was very much sympathetic to Marxist values. This is very sad. While Stalin was slaughtering millions in Russia and in Ukraine.

  11. Who cares about a rec league

  12. YAWN!!! That is why soccer is SOOOOO popular in the USA!
