Women’s Soccer Fans Erupt with Boos During Military Swearing-In Halftime Ceremony

Published

A military swearing-in ceremony at a women’s professional soccer game took an unexpected turn Wednesday when the enlistees were asked to “obey the orders of the president of the United States.”

It all went down at Providence Park in Portland, Oregon, during halftime of a match between the Portland Thorns and North Carolina Courage.

According to The Oregonian, the Thorns organization realized prior to the start of the season that the team would be playing on the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, so it scheduled the swearing-in ceremony for newly enlisted members of the armed forces.

At halftime, a large group of servicemen and women came out onto the field to take the Oath of Enlistment.

“I, [insert name] do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” the oath reads, according to the U.S. Army website, “that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the president of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”

Everything went fine until “the president of the United States” was mentioned.

Video taken of the scene, which picks up in the middle of the oath, revealed what happened.

“That I will obey the orders,” the enlistees are told to say, “of the president of the United States.”

At that point, the crowd erupted into loud booing, which lasted for several seconds until the oath was resumed.

It’s not hard to understand why the boos rained down: The enlistees were being told to obey President Donald Trump’s orders, and the anti-Trumpers in the crowd were not having it.

After the enlistees finished the oath, the crowd did cheer for them.

The Oregonian reported that the incident occurred in the midst of controversy over Major League Soccer’s updated Fan Code of Conduct, which bans political signs.

“Though the National Women’s Soccer League does not have a fan code of conduct, the [MLS’ Portland] Timbers and Thorns organization has enforced the MLS ban on political signage at Thorns games this season as well,” the newspaper reported.

“All of our operational staff for Providence Park games are the same,” the Thorns said in a statement last month.

“Having different rules for different teams creates confusion among staff and for fans alike. We also believe that what is allowed, for those wishing to trumpet opposition to fascism at MLS games, is also a fair and reasonable approach for Thorns and T2 games.”

  • Daniel Quigley says:

  • Lorenzo says:

    Nothing to see here – just another example of TDS by people at the edge of the bell curve.
    I hear plenty of people cheering as well – remarkable given the venue.

  • usac#95 says:

    what did you expect from the liberal scum of portland starting with the mayor of Portland who hates the slogan Make America Great Again loves the Antifa scum bags

    • VietnamVeteran says:

      Yes, of course. Probably half of Portland can be considered “domestic enemies.” They are mostly leftist-liberal-socialist-communist-antifa-democrat idiots. Worthless trash.

      • Bob says:

        Thank you for your service. I am also an old veteran.

        • VietnamVeteran says:

          I salute you Bob. What branch? What war, if any? I was in Vietnam “fighting the communists,” but, of course, we lost that war due to the democrats in Congress selling out the South Vietnamese people to the communists in 1973 – literally. Also, I’ve mentioned this many times – that the Democrat Secretary of State Dean Rusk admitted to forwarding U.S. military plans to the North Vietnamese on a daily basis. Thus, Dean Rusk committed TREASON. Typical democrat or, actually, DEMO-RAT.

          Keep up the fight amigo. Semper fi. 😊

    The real goal of the Radical Left is to destroy America from within by erasing all History, eliminating the Constitution, American Law, The Family Unit, American Culture, American Freedoms, The Right of Gun Ownership, eliminating Capitalism and Free Enterprise and replacing it with Socialism and Communism, Silencing the Conservative Voice, Attacking Christianity, Controlling the Education System and implementing a Liberal Curriculum from first grade to College (Liberal Core Education), Removing Historical Statues and Monuments, passing excessive taxation, passing overbearing government regulations and controls, pushing toward complete Centralized Federal Government, Controlling all Mass Media, Eliminating Borders, Manipulating Elections, disrespect, discredit, and slander local Law Enforcement with the ultimate goal of Federalizing all Local and State Police, implementing Socialized Health and Medicine (Government Controlled Single Payer Healthcare), Massive Land Grab, excessive and overbearing Zoning Laws, passing and enforcing massive environmental laws such as the Current Green Deal proposals, creating and financing tons of hate groups, using Government Agencies for Political Weapons, Financing continuous protesting, and so forth. What is the most scary of all is how many Americans who are ignorant, clueless, or Braindead who actually vote for these Freaks!!

  • Tommy Ryan says:

    Those F’kheads “booing” only represent less than 10% of the libtard ignoramuses in America:
    1. Prog-Soci Politicians
    2. The MSM mainstream media
    3. The idiot sheeple that disrespect this nation (be-it the athletes OR the idiots that “booed” during the swearing-in of these good citizens (which I once took that SAME OATH in 1993).

    These damned libtrolls have forgotten their roots…& what happened 18 years ago on the day these good citizens became US Military.

    Shame on the libtrolls!

    There is a phrase related to unilateral performance of a sex act. Y’all just go perform this.

  • Tom Jones says:

    Don’t forget, Oregon shares a border with California, and is rapidly becoming as insane as them. Since the 9-11 terrorists were illegal aliens, these nuts were probably cheering them at the time, along with all the Muslims.

  • Joe says:

    Why did they have their swearing in at a women’s soccer game? That’s like having it in an ISIS compound.

  • Tmc8866 says:

    Womens soccer crowd? So what like 7 people booed? Who gives a shit about soccer in the 1st place. Combine it with WOMEN and its a big nothing burger.
