Remember when Philadelphia was called “the City of Brotherly Love”?

NJ political boss kicked out of Philadelphia Eagles suite after draping Israel flag

The Post reports:

“New Jersey Democratic political boss George Norcross was kicked out of a Philadelphia Eagles game Sunday after he was confronted by security about the American-Israeli flag he was flying from his luxury suite and an altercation ensued, stadium officials said.

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.

A stadium official told The Post that flags have been prohibited at the stadium in a ‘longstanding policy.’”

Under the decidedly extreme circumstances – Hamas mass murdering Jews – one would think the Eagles might show the tiniest bit of common sense that flying a joint American/Israeli flag from a private stadium box is hardly some ordinary and deliberate flouting of the stadium rules.

But alas. Not so.

Brotherly Love was on display right there in Philadelphia – and the Eagles put a stop to it.

Not good. And not good PR for the Eagles.
