Minor league team shows video portraying Congresswoman as an "enemy of freedom"

Source: Yahoo

The Fresno Grizzlies, the Triple-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals, showed what can only be called a political propaganda video to fans during a Memorial Day tribute on Monday during a doubleheader against the El Paso Chihuahuas. Carmen George of the Fresno Bee tweeted about it at around 7:30 PM PDT:

The video, which George linked in a subsequent tweet and will not be linked here, can be found on YouTube. It mostly contains standard images and symbols of military pride, but about three minutes into the three-minute, 35-second video, the voiceover of Ronald Reagan talks about "the enemies of freedom" while images are shown of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, Fidel Castro and . . . Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Someone, apparently a protesting American, wearing an Antifa hat is also shown.

The video in question also includes a few other pictures of anti-fascism protests among the "enemies of freedom" montage.

3. Hey, Grizzlies ever fucking think about looking what is going to be shown prior

a game............. ................I remember living in the area back in the early sixties and they had book burning's, and the Castle Air Force Base was defending this city along with Merced and other valley cities, during the Cold War........................why doesn't your city first of all grow the fuck up especially your farm team.......................... ,

You have a Congressman running around area, if he's not in Iowa maintaining his California farm, that, more than likely was giving the asshole traitor information about him from a criminal investigations and while he his also a crook himself so that they could attack the judicial process investigation of obstruction , and to top it all off.................. more than likely said that he beat the PM of Japan ABE at golf, because he's the fucking best.........................and never fucking lose's at anything, he's a fucking cheat...................................you didn't take the time to vett the film............................Cortez serves this country more than your worthless Congressman Nunes...............he compromise's federal investigations and basically gave the asshole presently in Japan going to Korea saying that FBI agents were traitors...................and should be charged with treason....................................think about that the next time you forget to vett a commercial of bullshit, Cortez never ever compromised this country......................

2. This is sick,

on Memorial Day to boot.

It just proves that RWers don't care about service men and women who died so these assholes can do shit like this in a free society.

6. I don't fully believe the excuse embedded in their apology that they did not properly vet the video

That implies a sort of negligence/shortcut/unawareness of the video's content... It is only 3 and 1/2 minutes long FFS. Whoever selected that video probably knew exactly what they were showing.

I mean, in the sense that their right wing BS-addled brains somehow thought it was a good video to show, then yes there was a failure of vetting, but that is different than what they are trying to imply. They are trying to say "it wasn't malice, it was just negligence" and I have serious doubts about that.

8. Correct me if I'm wrong: Isn't Fresno sort of rural Midwestern-ish, with lots of righties? nt
