Homosexuals Boot Country Dance Team Over Patriotic Uniform!

"Homosexual sponsors of a country dance festival booted a dance team wearing patriotic red white and blue uniforms since the atire triggered fear from some of the woke audience members. So the hype that leftist special interests love America seems to be a falsehood. Demanding new special rights under Biden's expanding gay rights agenda might include burning the American Flag," says Eugene Delgaudio, President of Public Advocate.

Brietbart reports:

A Seattle women's dance squad could not perform in American flag-themed uniforms at a country dance event because some attendees felt "triggered and unsafe."

Members of the Borderline Dance Team were "excited" to show off their moves at the Emerald City Hoedown until the LGBTQ organization that hosted the event gave them an ultimatum.

Rain Country Dance Association, a nonprofit group that hosts events to bring the country and western dance scene to the "queer" community, reportedly told the Borderline dancers that their red, white, and blue shirts were "offensive."



Over the last two days, we have been answering dozens of calls and messages from friends and family. Feelings have ranged all the way from outrage to sympathy to disbelief. We want to make sure there is complete understanding and truth surrounding the events of Saturday.
I'll try to make this as short as possible.
Our Dance Team along with a few others were scheduled to perform at the Emerald City Hoedown in Seattle on Saturday. They've been asking us for three years to perform but because of their Covid restrictions, we have been unable to until this year. Dance teams work their boots off preparing for performances like these. Extra practices, babysitters, ferry rides, hours upon hours of practice and commute time and time away from their families. We all were very excited to perform for this event. Unfortunately, what our team was met with upon arrival was that our flag tops were offensive to some of the convention goers. There was a small group that felt "triggered and unsafe".
They had several claims for this reasoning. Mostly associated with the situation in Palestine and the Trans community in America. At first we were told we would just be boo'd, yelled at and likely many of them would walk out. 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. Also, here is a link to their website that shows the pictures of our teams in our uniforms. So they would have known what we were going to wear.
We don't speak for our team, we speak on behalf of them so the choice was theirs. As we knew would happen because there really was no choice in our minds, it was a unanimous NO.
We were not alone in this. 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. Both of our teams stood in solidarity and put actions to words.
Now, for the silver lining. Firstly, watching these teams band together was the greatest performance I've ever seen. These people are strong, resolute and unwavering in their patriotism. 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.

Brietbart reported:

Speaking with the Jason Rantz Show, team co-captain Lindsay Stamp said that the complaints, which began after just 30 minutes of being at the venue, represented a "small percentage" of the event's attendees.

"My team doesn't take a political stance. We came to dance," she told host Jason Rantz. "We're a patriotic group. We support our military, our veterans, our first responders. We're a group of patriots.
