NASCAR Stuns Many Fans, Driver Quits, After It Announces Confederate Flag Ban, Allows Kneeling Protests

NASCAR has stunned many of its fans after it decided to ban confederate flags from all of its future events.

It also will be allowing kneeling protests in support of ‘Black Lives Matter.’ (Yahoo News)

In response to the moves driver Ray Ciccarelli announced that he would be quitting NASCAR after the 2020 season had been completed.

As The New York Post reports:

NASCAR turned off some fans on Wednesday by announcing it was banning Confederate flags from all of its events. It also lost a driver.

In a Facebook post, Ray Ciccarelli wrote he was ending his NASCAR Truck Series career after this season because of the decision.

“Well its been a fun ride and dream come true but if this is the direction Nascar is headed we will not participate after the 2020 season is over,” Ciccarelli announced. “I don’t believe in kneeling during Anthem nor taken ppl right to fly whatever flag they love.

“I could care less about the Confederate Flag but there are ppl that do and it doesn’t make them a racist all you are doing is f–king one group to cater to another.”

I have been a Nascar fan for as long as I can remember. I was in diapers at my first race and am now 75 years old. Have went to races as well as watch on TV and have loved both. The races have always been about America. About God and country. Now it is all about catering to one race, the black race. so am sorry to say until it is about America, God and country again I will not be a fan, nor will I attend or watch a Nascar race again and I have a few friends that won’t either. Goodbye NASCAR!
A Used to be Fan.

I tend to agree. I have a nice 4×8 foot Nascar Series banner that will go down to the basement in my sports bar.
It’s been tough getting support for Nascar anyway, aside from the Daytona 500. This year has been a complete f4ckup, being closed sure didn’t help.
Maybe I’ll need to change my venue to a fairy bar.

You are right.
I have only been following Nascar for 64 years.
I have seen Nascar race with stock cars in it.
Some of them came to the track on their own bottom .
I have fallen off a bit in the last few years.
Nascar’s lack of recognition of racism in the sport has put me off.
They rectified that this week.
Negroes are pretty funny about going places with blatant racist symbology.
Lose the Stars and Bars and gain the Negroes.
Would you prefer that Negroes do not attend Nascar races?
They can be so loud and obnoxious.

98+% of Nascar fans are White.
That is a race.
The use of the Stars and Bars puts off Blacks.
Which is what the Whites want.
That is catering to one race.
Nascar is done with that.
They see, along with the rest of the world, a wide rejection of racism.
The 20 to 40 demographic is done with that shit.
Nascar is looking to its future.
It is not the old fart racists.

Albert Hess- No one stopped black people from coming in ever. If black people don’t like NASCAR that is up to them. You do not have that sole opinion that you think your somehow righteous. Politics is destroying each sport that those leagues or sport allows it into them. People do not go to see or watch sports to see a one sided political viewpoint being dumped on them !!! The stars and bars has always been around NASCAR. Take a guess who started this sport and what part of the country where it started. All NASCAR fans should fully dump NASCAR now !! Those BLM rioters need to go to your place and show you what they are about so you learn the hard way you idiot !!!

You want to blame and throw cra*p on people alive today who had nothing to do with what occurred way back then at ALL! But your insistence to blame someone however then should go to the root of the problem then -way back then. To those black people who went out selling other black people around the world as slaves !!! Knock the hell off on USA which had the least of all countries with slaves !!!! Stupidity runs deep with you idiots who can not think even the slightest bit of where the blame should go to then !! If they were never brought here in the first place, they never would have been bought here as slaves !!! Stop slamming pure BS down peoples throats with your stupidity. World wide they were sold as slaves and USA had the very least of them of any country !!! Only 4% and that is FACT!!!!

The STARS and BARS Flag during the Civil War was only used 100% as a BATTLE FLAG !!!!!!! Albert Lunatic Hess, that means it is NOT the flag that represented the south !!! It was only a BATTLE FLAG !!!!
To bad there are total whack jobs like you Albert who run around bragging about your stupidity and love to show it off as you do here !
When clueless wonders such as you now know the real deal and truth about the Stars and Bars Flag and how and why it was used as a BATTLE Flag yet you still demand to show and tell your lunacy, then you need to be put in a funny farm and stay there ! I even would have been on the NORTH SIDE if I was alive back then. But I still know the FACTS and details of why the south still wants to keep that Battle Flag and I have no problem at all with it !!! YOUR complete BS about it being a RACIST flag now you need to shove that back up your backside !!! LEARN and WISE UP NOW !!!! ABE LINCOLN also had no problem with it either !!! So who the hell do you think you are to judge Lincoln if you are suppose to be on his side and free slavery???? You were not there then, so shut up and wise up !!! Total idiots as yourself is why there is a RACIST problem today. Your head is up your backside and your stupidity just keeps the fire hot over the RACISM that YOU ARE CREATING over this !!!

Wow, What we are seeing here is that if there is someone here who is a RACIST, it is 100% Albert Hess.His continuation of trying to force a BATTLE FLAG of the south in the civil War as a RACIST Flag !!! But LINCOLN and U.S. Grant both alive back then and seeing this flag they fully knew what it stood for and it’s use during battle. Since that is all that it meant, it was allowed to be kept by the south.
YOU ALBERT, and other lunatics who is trying to force RACISM on people have no one but yourself’s to look at. The surrender agreement LINCOLN and GRANT both allowed it to be taken home by the south. That is ALL THAT FLAG MEANT and was for, a FLAG FOR BATTLE !!!! IT HAD NO OTHER MEANING TO IT AT ALL!!! SO YOU Albert and you other idiots had best wise your RACIST BUTTS UP !!! NONE OF YOU override what LINCOLN or GRANT allowed and accepted then at all!!!! Both of them knew exactly what that flag was used and meant for entirely then- not your precious Princess’s little butts !

I can’t believe it! We have got to quit bowing down to this stuff! The cop is in jail and going to get what he deserves that’s enough! I don’t owe anyone nothing and I’m not giving up my right to fly whatever flag I want when I want! NASCAR is heading in the wrong direction and I hope they change it soon.

I am fed up with this ‘Black Lives Matter’ BS.
They should have the integrity and decency to change it to “ALL Lives Matter” which is a mantra that we ALL can be proud of.
For me, Black lives matter as a slogan is about as racist and bigoted as it can get— do the organizers think it is ‘inclusive’?

Hope ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter and all of the other anti-American socialist groups NASCAR is pandering too can fill their stands and watch their anti-white races on TV. Because they just lost one major group of fans forever. Brian France is a worthless anti-American hypocrite. Those that fail to learn from history are bound to repeat it with all of its failings.

Now when the Confederate flag is something different than what is normally flown or displayed. Now the one displayed or flown by adminers is a Confederate Infantry Battle Flag, not the Confederate flag as adopter in 1861.
Now that like a lot of other monuments is one of the most unusual things in history, Now when in any country in any place in the entire World, when they had a Civil WAr or any other conflict were the loosers allowed to install monuments and fly the flag by the loosers to their hero’s, this is unheard of but allowed t o be done to control the black population which even the North had little use for, and the only reason the slaves were free was as punishment for leaving the Union. Now since slavery and anything to do with the former slaves, up until about 1964 was controlled by the Conservative Movement which is still trying to marginalize the black population of this USA. Now I do think that this is a wake up call for not just the USA but for every Country in the Free World. Now NASCAR knows which side their bread is buttered on and without their sponsors there is no NASCAR, so they like FOX news sees the writing on the wall, and will do what it has to do to keep those sponsors who spend a lot oif money to support NASCAR.

So no one in this country should fly a German, Italian, Japanese or British flag, right? No matter their heritage. After all, we beat them all; and more. Hearing Wallace talk about the bad memories the Tennessee Battle Flag brought up in him made me laugh. Slavery was abolished over 150 years before he was born. He’s a mediocre driver at best and needed something to boost his presence. The last 2 races the announcers focused more on him than anyone else. Since the rioting started he started his rise to “power”. Was he the only one who had medical issues after Atlanta? NO; but where was the focus? I could go on, but apparently my Sunday afternoons will be sports-free now. Just like the NFL (Chargers can’t fill a 25K seat stadium in LA?), NASCAR has shot itself in the head.

When you say the German flag which one do you mean, the official flag from 1935 – 1945.
The one with the big Black swastika on it?
The worldwide recognized symbol of White Supremacy
Waving that flag in Germany will get you jail time.
As should be the waving of the Stars and Bars.
They both are symbols of a dying breed, the White Supremacists.
The vast majority of the 20 – 40 demographic ain’t buying your racist fecs.

My dad was an early member of NASCAR as a driver right after WWII ended. My family went to NASCAR’s first Daytona race on the old beach course in 1948 driving my moms 46 Ford Woody wagon from Tennessee to Daytona. We knew a lot of the drivers from races around Ga., SC., NC., Tn. and other southern states. Red Byron won that race and I remember seeing Fonty and Tim Flock there before the race started. I have some photos from then. A lot of race memories from childhood on from those early days. I feel like it’s now time for me and the weak kneed directors of NASCAR to part ways.

Well, if they truly don’t like racism, they should vote REPUBLICAN. Lincoln was a Republican. Not one Republican ever owned a slave. Not one Democrat voted for the Civil Rights Act. Democrats started the KKK and wrote the Jim Crow Laws that Hitler used as the basis for his anti-Jewish laws by copying them verbatim and changing Negro to Jew. So if you really do want to get rid of racism, Vote for anything other than Democrat!
