But that wouldn’t be surprising. Rich people are like that.
Taking a page from Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerburg, the MLS are treating fascists and white supremacists as “protected groups” while anti-fascists and anti-racists are being ejected from their stadiums. Iron Front fans are being ejected for “political banners and protest signs”, but racists wearing t-shirts and spewing chants are not. Fans are walking out in protest at the hypocrisy.
Anti-fascist MLS fans have adopted the Iron Front symbol, incorporating it into the MLS logo. I was actually unaware of the Iron Front’s history, an alliance of anti-fascists and anti-communists in Germany who opposed fought against the rise of nazism. The MLS fans who wave the Iron Front logo in the US are antifa supporters who oppose gun violence and racism. I’m in awe of what MLS fans have done, the sheer brilliance of it. Bravo.
This is the original Iron Front logo from 1932:
