New Jersey Politico Says Eagles/NFL Ruled Israeli Flag At Game ‘Obscene Or Indecent’ — Team Says Otherwise | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Democratic power player George Norcross says officials cited rules banning "obscene or indecent" displays when they ejected him from Lincoln Financial Field for hanging American and Israeli flags from his luxury box - but the team tells a different story.

    Norcross, 67, a former co-owner of The Philadelphia Inquirer, said in a statement that he had displayed the flags during Sunday's game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys because he wanted to show support for Israel in the wake of the October 7 terror attacks committed by Hamas against Israeli civilians.

    "Yesterday, I was forcibly removed and assaulted by the non-police security staff of Lincoln Financial Field and the Eagles/NFL for refusing to remove a 3′ x5′ American and Israeli flag I'd hung off the box I was sitting in," Norcross said. "As a longtime passionate fan and season ticket holder, I have watched the Eagles/NFL make clear and strong statements on numerous important civil justice issues and ethnic and world conflicts, including supporting the people of Ukraine, so as a strong supporter of Israel - a country which was viciously attacked by the terrorist group Hamas less than a month ago - I thought it was an important statement to make."

    Norcross went on to say that when officials ejected him, they cited rules against any display that might be considered "obscene or indecent."

    "It remains unclear why the Eagles/NFL believe that the US-Israeli flag should be deemed 'obscene or indecent' or otherwise inappropriate - which is what I was cited for - and should therefore be ripped down despite both issuing public statements strongly supporting Israel following the October 7th attacks," he continued.

    The Philadelphia Eagles also released a statement, saying that official stadium policy banned any signage that was not related to the game - and said that when they approached Norcross to inform him of that policy, he became combative.

    "Mr. Norcross was ejected from the stadium only after his abuse toward numerous stadium staff members continued," the statement read. "He was escorted from the suite level to the stadium's ejection point, just as anyone else would be after engaging in abusive behavior in violation of stadium policy."

    The Philadelphia Eagles had previously spoken out about the October 7 massacre, perpetrated by Hamas terrorists, and had honored the American citizens who remain hostage in Gaza during a recent game.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?
