Shocking moment women's soccer crowd BOO as US Armed Forces enlistees are asked to pledge loyalty to President Trump in 9/11 ceremony

A U.S. Armed Forces swearing in ceremony during a National Women's Soccer League match in Oregon on 9/11 drew loud boos from the crowd when the enlistees were asked to pledge allegiance to President Trump.

The ceremony took place in the middle of the field at Providence Park stadium in Portland on Wednesday night as a way to commemorate 9/11 during the Portland Thorns and North Carolina Courage game.

The group of enlistees were initially cheered on by the 17,000-strong crowd when they started taking the Oath of Enlistment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was unfortunate in the extreme; can we, as a nation, manage to please keep politics away from sports?!?!?

And there have been many moments which I have felt that President Trump has been a colossal disappointment as President.

But when I criticize him, I work to be as fact-centric as possible, so that the points I am making will not get lost in a sea of vitriol.

There are many more productive things to do, if one does not like a political incumbent; petitioning; peaceful protests; and getting out there to encourage people to vote, and get them registered to do so.

Allegiance to Trump!

Ethan Allen and...

They take an Oath to the US Constitution not Adolf Trump. THe crowd was right to boo! We are becoming more like NAZI Germany every day!
This editorial missed the point! The crowd didn't!
Our military is not supposed to Pledge Allegiance to a human being but to the Constitution!
