New Jersey Democratic political boss George Norcross was apparently kicked out of a Philadelphia Eagles game on Sunday for flying an American-Israeli flag from his luxury suite.
Norcross, 67, a power broker whose endorsements are widely sought after in the Garden State, was seen on a video posted to X being confronted by security officers at Lincoln Financial Field, where he was watching the Eagles take on the Dallas Cowboys.
He was filmed yelling and pointing at a security guard before being led away.
Meanwhile, another security officer reached down and tore down his flag — showing the American flag on one half and the Israeli flag on the other, in an apparent display of support for the Jewish nation.
Lincoln Financial Field does not have any specific policy against displaying flags, but its policy on signs and banners says security can remove anything that is “potentially offensive.
“Signs, banners or similar items that are obscene or indecent, not event-related, potentially offensive to other patrons, capable of blocking views of other fans or otherwise deemed dangerous or inappropriate by the Eagles are prohibited,” it says.
“Lincoln Financial Field reserves the right to confiscate any signs that are in violation of stadium policy.”
But fans on X noted that the flag was hanging from a bannister, and was not obstructing anyone’s view.
“I’M WITH GEORGE NORCROSS ON THIS… not the Philadelphia @Eagles,” civil rights attorney Steven Goldstein posted.
“George displayed a US-Israel flag from his own box, which he paid for, at today’s game. Eagles security physically removed him,” he wrote.
“The Eagles owe an apology to George and to the Jewish community #IStandWithIsrael.”
