Mark Cuban’s Hatred For America Just Came Back To Bite Him In The A**!

Syndicated Via National File| FRANK SALVATO| The Dallas Mavericks owner is slapped down by the NBA commissioner

After saying that his organization would not play he National Anthem before home games, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was forced to eat his words when NBA Commissioner Adam Silver reiterated the NBA’s policy that the national song is mandatory at the open of each contest.

Cuban had told ESPN that he directed his organization to stop playing the national anthem before home games, Breitbart.com reported. The move was said to be permanent, not temporary, with no plans to reinstate the ritual.

In doing so, the Dallas Mavericks became the first major American sports team in US history to officially terminate the playing of the National Anthem.

But NBA Commissioner Adam Silver issued a statement Wednesday re-stating the long-standing NBA policy that “all teams will play the national anthem” prior to each game.

Backpedaling, Cuban told ESPN he had no issue with his organization playing the anthem “at all.” He said the decision not to do so was the result of conversations with members of the community who felt the tradition “did not fully represent them.”

Cuban’s organization never issued a formal policy statement on the termination of the playing of the Anthem, but it had not been played before any of their 13 pre-season and regular-season games played so far this season at the American Airlines Center.

“We’re always talking to our community. That’s something [Mavericks CEO Cynthia Marshall] stands for and is very insistent upon and has become a core part of who we are at the Dallas Mavericks,” Cuban told ESPN Wednesday.

“In listening to the community, there were quite a few people who voiced their concerns, really their fears that the national anthem did not fully represent them, that their voices were not being heard,” Cuban continued in his excuse. “So, we’ve had a lot of conversations about whether or not we should play the anthem. And so, during the first pre-season game, we decided to not play it and just see what the response was, knowing that we were going to have ongoing conversations about it.”

Cuban waffled on his initial decision saying the organization had always planned on resuming the playing of the Anthem “at some point, likely when fans were allowed back in the arena.”

“We didn’t make any decision to never play the national then, that wasn’t the case at all,” Cuban, one of the hosts of Shark Tank, demurred. “We didn’t cancel the national anthem. We still had our flag flying proud up on the wall at the American Airlines Center and everybody had the opportunity to address it and pray to it or salute to it or whatever their feelings are.” READ THE REST AT NATIONAL FILE

I watched the beginning of the NFL playoff game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills. The national anthem wasn't sung. It was played by some hard rock guitarist. Then after the so-called national anthem, the Buffalo Bills came running out onto the field. Was the guitar noise too loud for them, or do they hate our national anthem so much that they have to keep themselves locked inside until it's over. NFL, go to hell.

Anyone - who does not want our National Anthem played, the Pledge of Allegiance said and see those who who burn our flag punished - is free to go where those things are not allowed. There must be one condition however - they can not come back when they discover how much they wish they could listen to the Anthem, say the pledge and see flag burners punished. I'll be the first to donate to help them fly out of the USA!
