Socialism Sucking Minor Leage Fresno BB Team Shows Video Presenting AOC as Enemy of Freedom


Ocasio-Cortez featured among America’s ‘enemies of freedom’ in baseball team’s Memorial Day video

Among the “enemies of freedom” portrayed in a Memorial Day tribute video at a minor league baseball game: North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, former Cuban president Fidel Castro and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

The video, shown between games of the Fresno Grizzlies’ doubleheader Monday, displayed President Ronald Reagan’s first inaugural address on top of patriotic photos and images honoring veterans. A Fresno Bee reporter first pointed out the video on Twitter.

“As for the enemies of freedom, those who are potential adversaries, they will be reminded that peace is the highest aspiration of the American people,” Reagan said as a photo of Ocasio-Cortez flashed across the screen between photos of dictators. “We will negotiate for it, sacrifice for it. We will not surrender for it, now or ever.”

A spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described democratic socialist, declined to comment.

The Grizzlies, the Class AAA affiliate of the Washington Nationals, said in a statement posted on Twitter that they had not seen the full video before it aired. The team apologized for not properly vetting it and for taking attention away from veterans.

“A pre-produced video from outside our front office was selected; unfortunately what was supposed to be a moving tribute ended with some misleading and offensive editing, which made a statement that was not our intent and certainly not our opinion,” the Grizzlies wrote of the video that played at Chukchansi Park in Fresno, Calif.

The Grizzlies staff member responsible for the video was “remorseful,” team spokesman Paul Braverman told The Washington Post in an email. Braverman confirmed that the team would conduct an internal review to determine how the video bypassed internal controls meant to prevent this kind of incident.


It's OK. They're remorseful. (assholes)
