Antifa Appropriates Philadelphia Flyers ‘Gritty’ Mascot

The Philadelphia Flyers recently introduced a new mascot. Club president Paul Holmgren named the mascot Gritty, which reflects how the word “grit” is associated with Philadelphia.

That would have likely been the end of the story except for the fact that just two days after the mascot’s debut, socialist magazine Jacobin tweeted that “Gritty is a worker.”

When President Trump visited Philadelphia last Tuesday, Antifa and other far-left groups were there to protest carrying their Gritty posters chanting “Gritty hates Trump.” One banner even pictured Gritty with the words “Gritty say G.T.F.O. of Philly.”
