We'll get to your calls Throughout this hour eight hundred nine four one. Sean is our number. If you wanna be a part of the program. We broke his story this week. on this program on hannity about the us olympic committee and they're redesign as it relates to the stars and stripes and you know and to the credit of the us olympic paralympic committee at you know in the us olympians imperil olympian associations. And they were asking everyone fill out an online survey one of the items on the survey is a proposed changes to the stars and stripes. That is used by the us opec materials and we got a hold of this survey and then we reached out to them and I i don't believe we need any changes to our flag. We have one flag and you know and then they responded and they got back to us and they said that they are in the early stages there. These are the design brainstorming stages variety of concepts that they're sharing which stakeholders quote the exact quote was. We're in the very early stages of potentially exploring new brand executions for the united states olympic in paralympic committee. And it's common practice in the creative development to share a variety of concepts with stakeholders for reaction and feedback that will then be used to determine the next steps What was sent to. You is just one of dozens of ideas shared in this brainstorming and serving process now. My argument is very simple. You know if you're associated in any way with our olympics impera olympics. We already have a flag. It's called the united states of america. The stars and stripes. That should be the only flag you don't need to be wasting your money and designing and brainstorming on a new flag. Get a different flag because they they have different printouts of athletes with the different flag. And my messages. Stop wasting your time and money It's an awful idea. We have the stars and stripes. That's the flag that represents our country one nation under god indivisible and that should be used for the olympics and paralympics and any associated organizations of this and all these great olympians that makes us so proud represent the united states and it's the united states of america and we already have a flag. It's not not that hard and they put out a statement after a broke the story that it was just one of many concepts. We want to be clear. We love our country. We respect the american flag. We do not have any intention not to mention authority to change our nation's our country's flag but that's not the point you're associated with the olympics at the highest level. You already have the flag anyway. This is now made its way into Congress which is getting very interesting. And i have a letter in front of me and it sound by a number of congressman. And it's it's it's written to the to the us olympic and paralympic committee with concerned about the growing trend of american athletes taking advantage of the international platform afforded by the olympic games. To perpetuate divisive hateful anti-american ideology ideologies as. You're likely aware social media comments made by chelsea wolfe was qualified as an alternate to represent the us in the summer olympics recently received widespread attention in one post. A wolf claims quote. My goal is to win the olympics. So i can burn the us flag on the podium in another comment will imply the president. Donald j trump should be assassinated now. Okay so they asked respectfully That have no kind of political demonstration. A religious or racial propaganda be permitted an olympic sites by the way that is rule fifty in the international olympic. Committee's olympic charter. Anyway one of the Writers of this letter one of the authors of this letter is with us now. And that's congressman. Matt rosendahl of montana. Like the congressman. Tom is outraged to see. Is sir. Welcome to the program. Thank you so much for. Having me on sean. Let's first talk about the issue that i broke this week hidden and my team broke this week as relates to the the creative design Changes to the american flag. Why would they even waste a second even suggesting or proposing anything like that so on. I don't know i. I think this all goes along with this Emphasis on trying to promote Critical race theory. Crt as being described ran the nation to Try to show our country to be this terrible divisive systemically racist place where no one can get ahead unless the government is out there protecting them and i do not accept that premise. I refused to accept that premise. Incredible nation personally. I've raised and lowered the flag four or five years when i was in middle school every single day. I wouldn't have their raise. The flag lowered it back down in the afternoon. I have a an incredible sense of pride. I think that it would be nice if we could reflect back upon the us. Men's hockey team. I thought he team in nineteen eighty when we had the miracle on ice and everyone had such a sense of pride and patriotism about our nation and our athletes that were competing at the olympics. And so that is one of the reasons why i got together with thirty nine and my colleagues. I don't want to put my nose into the olympics. I don't want to tell them how to run their operation there but i did want to remind them that their own rules certainly should govern the way that people conduct themselves and as you stayed in rule. Fifty clearly outlines that no kind of demonstration or political religious or racial propaganda is permitted any olympic sized venues other areas. Let us watch sports. Let us watch the best that our country has supported that our country has created and less watch and cheer them on i. I don't think it's any more complicated than that So the question. Is you know what happened. Did you get a response from the olympic committee. Now we have not received a response and we're monitoring Such activities is what you just described and Watching very closely to see. Is it going to require a more of a More action My next action is to start looking. At what kind of benefit do they receive from any kind of tax exemption and he's kind of support from from the The code that we have put in place that these athletes are taking advantage of not to mention the franchise if you will of year nine hundred states of america to go out there and compete before they go use that to promote themselves. You know i find this. You know what happened to the idea. I don't know if you noticed that the story that that came out. And it's you know the woke -ness of america here but now the report that the upcoming nfl season is gonna feature quote to national anthems and other social justice messaging here. I just thought that. I you know i really believed in that martin. Luther king's dream of a colorblind society and the idea that we're one nation under god and indivisible and that we have one flag and one national anthem But apparently i. I guess the nfl is is going full on. Woke up to me i. I'm listening and watching. And we see sports ratings on television going going down by dramatic numbers. I mean when you look at the nba finals. It was down thirty three percent When you look at major league baseball all-star game it was the lowest number in the history of the sport It's happening football. Numbers have been down ever since kapernick got on the scene and started taking a knee and other people staying in the locker room etcetera etcetera What are we keep politics out of sports because you have a unifying moment where people have a shared passion and that is number one the sport number to their home team. I mean i don't know if you've had this experience congressman. I've had many times where you know Somebody hits home. Run your high fiving strangers. Somebody you know your home team gets the touchdown your high fiving strangers you sharing beer and popcorn talking to people. You don't know what their politics are. Why are we bringing politics into sports. People want to get away from the stress of everyday life. That's exactly why they brought watch sports. They want the distraction they just want to go in there and watch a healthy competition. You know one of the one of the venues that i've seen that is starting to pick back up on support and attendance though is nascar and you know. They have a a prayer and the national anthem at the beginning of every one of those raised shawn and everybody stands up that removed their hats and they still celebrate patriotism and and god and country and that store race interesting. How they're they're attended picking up. Yeah i mean there. And i don't know if you watch the nhl stanley cup series but the new york islanders fans. They just took over the singing of the anthem. The same thing happening in tampa bay with the tampa bay lightning. The same thing happened to walmart. I did. I saw that and people want to celebrate the great disavow our country. We don't want to remove or race. Our history we understand that you have to reflect upon it in order to continue to make the great strides that we have as you said martin luther king. Let's judge people by constant of their character not by the color of their skin and we have made tremendous strides and people were doing it. And and so. Let's continue to celebrate the greatness of our country. We have lifted more people around the globe out of poverty and oppression than any country on earth and have asked for nothing in return. And let's celebrate it you know. I can't say it any better and yeah we. We made a lot of progress. Thank god and we have a lot more progress to make. But we're making that too. And and i think most of them. I don't believe most americans are racist. I believe most americans good people. And i think most americans view people that are racist racist as ignorant and this constant refrain of the democrat. Jim crow two point. Oh etc joe. Biden's state is far more restrictive voting laws than does the state of georgia. And now we empower the. You know we weaponized the doj to go after georgia but not after joe's state of delaware where never lifted a finger to make voting more accessible but the citizens in in delaware. I mean it's voting easy and cheating hard. It's very exactly. Let's make voting easy and cheating part Well said anyway. Congressman appreciate you doing this. Please update us when you hear back from them. If you don't mind i will do so. Listen thank you so much. And good luck and godspeed to. I appreciate it. That's Congressman matt rosen dell from the great state of montana and i asked my crew shouldn't just go all go to montana. We'll get a big ranch. You know where the buffalo roam and and just just do our shows from out there and just get off the grid and every other way sound so appealing to me lately. I don't know why i'm losing my mind i. I'm beginning to hate you. Know congested areas. More more these days.
