As Every Other MLB Team Pushes 'Pride,' Here's the One Team That Doesn't

Amid a slew of professional sports teams and leagues kowtowing to the leftist alphabet agenda praising “Pride,” meet the one team that’s…well, not.

The Texas Rangers are facing backlash for once again being the only Major League Baseball team to not be hosting a “Pride Night” in celebration of gay and trans lifestyles. While literally every other team sports rainbow pins, gives center stage to drag queens, and honors anti-Catholic hate groups with awards for their open perversion, the Rangers stand alone as the only group ignoring the left’s social mandate.

The team has refused to host a “Pride Night” every year since 2003, when their last ill-fated attempt to appease the alphabet mafia was met with intense backlash from fans who don’t want to mix America’s pastime with sexualized propaganda.

And the pitch fork mob isn’t happy, accusing the team of capitulating to conservative extremists in the Republican-controlled state (because, we all know by now, not bedazzling your stadium in honor of men who parade around as women means you're a bigot).

According to Fox News, one former Rangers employee blasted the team’s refusal to host “Pride Night” festivities as a missed marketing opportunity by at least "looking inclusive." 

"(The silence) is deafening," the former employee told The Athletic, per Fox News. "The fact of the matter is it’s a free marketing opportunity, it doesn’t cost them anything personally and they can boost revenue by looking inclusive. The fact that there hasn’t been one (for Texas), is the biggest ‘actions speak louder than words’ I’ve ever seen…They do a lot of things well, where they have all these other nights for different fans and cultures. The fact that they omit one group very clearly is just ridiculous."

Translation: Overtly shove this deviant garbage into a baseball game that has absolutely nothing to do with sexual preference or gender, or we’ll assume you hate everybody. Which is, incidentally, exactly what landed the Los Angeles Dodgers in hot water with fans after the team bestowed a "Community Hero" award on a group of drag queens known for dressing as Catholic nuns and holding strip teases on crosses before crowning the year's "Hunkiest Jesus." 

For their part, the Rangers leadership has responded to criticism by saying they seek to include everyone at their ballparks, and that they do support members of the LGBTQ community in other ways - just not by forcing everyone in their park to participate.

"Our commitment is to make everyone feel welcome and included in Rangers baseball," the team said in a statement. "That means in our ballpark, at every game, and in all we do – for both our fans and our employees. We deliver on that promise across our many programs to have a positive impact across our entire community."
