The American people fought against the oppression of a government ruled by a tyrannical king. The king is a symbol of the forces against everything that is righteous and good in the American spirit. The king is the antithesis of freedom and liberty–the very essence of American values.
Cheering for a sports team named for such a figure is positively un-American. Cheering for a sports team called The Kings is no better than cheering for The Czars or the Reichfuhrers.
Don’t be un-American. Support liberty and freedom. Go Ducks.
