Pro-criminal leftists recently went on the attack against a Class-A baseball team in Maryland because the team dared to sponsor a pro-police patch on their baseball uniforms.
The controversy rose after milquetoast, Millennial Twitter user Greg Murphy posted an image of one of the Ironbirds players wearing the patch.

Despite the spittle-specked, leftist attacks, the Aberdeen Ironbirds, a Class-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, defended the patches.
Ironbirds general manager Matt Slatus told the Baltimore Sun that the patch is meant to pay tribute to two Harford County sheriff’s deputies, Patrick Dailey and Mark Logsdon, who were killed in the line of duty.
Slatus added that the patches had nothing to do with politics.
“We are not a political organization by any means,” he said. “We’re here to provide affordable family fun and entertainment to the Upper Chesapeake region. We’re here to develop baseball players and make sure that, most importantly, people come out to the ballpark and have a great time.
“This is not a political discussion, it’s not a political point. We continue to honor and recognize the memory of the two deputies who tragically – while trying to protect the region – lost their lives in Harford County.”
The club has done a number of things to honor the fallen officers. including retiring their badge numbers and placing them on their wall of fame.
Anti-cop leftists, of course, insist that the patch must be a conservative political statement and couldn’t possibly mean that the team is just supporting fallen local heroes, but must, instead, be a racist attack on black people.
Of course. See… it’s all about raaaaacism.
As if a baseball team in 2019 would go out of its way to be racists.
