DEFIANT FANS Stand Up and Sing NATIONAL ANTHEM After High School Announcer Tells Crowd: “There will be no anthem, let’s just play softball”[VIDEO]

President Trump has been working overtime as he starts a petition to get “spineless” ESPN to televise the national anthem. 

ESPN was recently planning on not televising the national anthem before “Monday Night Football” games this season. However, President Trump was not having it as he criticized their decision and initiated a petition.

Trump’s petition demands that ESPN show pregame performances of the national anthem.

The national anthem protests have continued into high school games. Angry and frustrated fans decided to stand up and sing the national anthem after a California High School announcer told the crowd that they would not play the national anthem at the softball game. 

As the two high schools got together to play in the D-1 championship in Fresno, CA the fans were in complete shock after the announcer told them the news. The fans booed at the announcement and then what they did next was what is making headlines. 

The fans became true role models for all Americans around the US and every child in our school system. It is nice to see people showing their patriotism despite all the hate and corruption towards the national anthem. 

From 100percentfedup:

Hundreds of fans attending a game between Clovis High and Buchanan at Fresno State University’s Margie Wright Diamond on Friday were in disbelief when they learned the National Anthem wouldn’t be played. Despite this, they sang a cappella.

Watch the amazing display of patriotism here:

Tiffany Marquez, a fan who attended the game, took a video of the makeshift choir.

“Honestly, I was shocked (when) the announcer stated, ‘There will be no anthem, let’s just play softball,’” Marquez told the Fresno Bee. “Within seconds, you could hear people in the crowd singing and the volume of their voices building. There I was, standing in the middle of a true testament to unity and patriotism.”

Event coordinator Bob Kayajania took responsibility for the decision to not have the anthem played at the game.

“The national protocol is the first game of the session you have the national anthem,” Kayajania told the Bee. “The game after that are just played. We got caught. They started to play some music and the people took that as the national anthem and they all started singing, which I think is obviously a wonderful thing to show off their patriotism.”

Kayajania called it a “learning experience” and going forward, the anthem will be played at every game.
