Activists have their ‘Free Hong Kong’ sign confiscated during national anthem at Wizards game

Jon Schweppe is the director of policy and government affairs at the American Principles Project, and he and a couple of others headed to a game between the Washington Wizards and the Guangzhou Loong Lions wearing their Free Hong Kong T-shirts.

They didn’t even make it through the national anthem before their “Free Hong Kong” sign was confiscated:

They also brought a “Google Uyghurs” sign, which lasted slightly longer. Maybe one of the security guys Googled “Uyghurs.”

Looks like Congress is going to get involved in this fight:
