Travis Tritt loves America and the Atlanta Braves.
So it was not that much of a surprise that the country music legend and Georgia native was invited to perform the national anthem during Game 6 of the National League Championship Series.
Tritt also has a rock-sold policy against performing in any venue that requires patrons to be vaccinated against the China Virus.
Fortunately, Truist Park, the home of the Braves, does not have such a policy.
While fans saluted the decision, the pro-vaccine fundamentalists in the Mainstream Media erupted in rage.
Consider these headlines:
- WASHINGTON POST: Travis Tritt, who is against vaccine mandates, to sing national anthem before Game 6 of NLCS
- YAHOO/SPORTS: Braves pick Travis Tritt, who opposes COVID-19 vaccine mandates, to sing national anthem at Game 6
- USA TODAY: Atlanta Braves make unfortunate anti-vaccine statement with Travis Tritt as NLCS national anthem singer
Keith Olbermann unleashed a flurry of angry tweets.
“Let’s have an anti-vax Cracker sing the national anthem tonight,” he wrote.
For the record, we prefer to be called Saltine-Americans – not Crackers.
Only the @Braves could look at the rock of their franchise, Freddie Freeman, who was so sick with Covid-19 last year that he prayed he wouldn’t die and who can leave as a free agent this winter and say “LET’S HAVE AN ANTI-VAX CRACKER SING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM TONIGHT!”— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) October 23, 2021
