Meet Joann Flaminio: Radical Feminist And Former BAA President Who Threw The American Flag On The Ground During National Anthem At Boston Marathon 


To read this blog on our ad free website click here

Earlier today we published a blog about Granny McTreason throwing the American flag on the ground, during the National anthem, to celebrate the first American to win the Boston Marathon wheelchair race in 26 years.

The BAA issued a weak sauce apology, saying that they’d be “reviewing our Awards protocol to ensure that this does not happen again,” because evidently they have to be taught not to throw the American flag on the ground.

But this rang hollow to a lot of people because the woman who did it should come forward and apologize herself. That wasn’t an accident, and it was likely done because either, a) the flag was blocking the John Hancock logo (which they probably pay good money for to be seen on TV), or b) nationalism is now a bad thing because Trump is President.

My money was on the latter, and it seems to be much more likely now that we know who Granny McTreason is. Meet Joanna Flaminio of Providence:

She was the President of the BAA from 2011 to 2017, and she rubs elbows with Bob Kraft and other high profile people.

Based on her Facebook posts it’s pretty clear what team she’s on:

That was all I really needed to see. She thinks Brett Kavanaugh should’ve apologized for being a sexual predator, even though it’s pretty common knowledge at this point that Christine Blasey-Ford got in front of Congress and lied her face off for the million dollar GoFundMe. This is the kind of person she is and how she thinks. And there is ZERO doubt in my mind that a person who thinks that due process and other American things like that aren’t important would be the same kind of person who would see the American flag as problematic, since it represents those values.

She’s a resister all the way:

And constantly posts left wing talking points on Facebook.

She seems to take great pride in getting on camera with the marathon winners every year, and an American flag would certainly take away the spotlight from her.


Joann Flaminio owes every American an explanation and apology, directly from her, for what she did today. She is the former President of this organization. Andy protocol they set up was done by her. Either she violated her own rules or banning the flag is one of her rules. She needs to answer.

    I know Joann Flaminio personally and you all can rest assured that she is a great American and a great Patriot. She has done more to serve her country than any of us could ever imagine but would never look for recognition for it. She made a misjudgment in the heat of the moment like any one of us would have. She was trying to get the participant recognized in a quick unscripted fashion and should never be demonized for that. We have all done things like this but are able to take them back because they are not on camera. She is more American than any of us trust me on that. I do not agree with her politics but that is not even close to being an issue here. She is a wonderful, caring and genuine individual who deserves a pass on this. If you have never made an unscripted mistake in your life then you can criticize. Joann you are awesome and thank you for your service to our country!!

    I was expecting to see her RIP the flag down and stop on it. But, I saw her take it out of a womans hands and place the flag behind her. I dont like her but I say we pick up the flag and go with no penalty. 1st Down

    The right answer from joann: I am a miserable woman who HATES toxic masculinity, loving the flag represents toxic masculinity therefore I hate the flag. Even if we had a woman president, an all women congress and senate I still wouldn’t be happy because I wouldn’t be a victim anymore and what fun would that be?

      Fox News finally got around to reporting something, but better late… They had an article on the flag being “crumpled” in the corner but nothing else.

      Naturally, I linked the two blogs from TB in their comments section.

    So our gal is Joanus Flamin’ahole. Given her association with BAA, she most certainly knows flag etiquette; she is NOT some brainless volunteer pulled in for a task (Sorry, volunteers, not disrespecting you, just furthering the supposition of one Nicole Bavis, who took offense at the tone of the original FB post showing the desecration). I consulted professor Google, and EVERY media outlet, save TBS, shows a simple pic of the flag on the floor, and they “don’t know how it got there.” Thank you, Uncle Turtleboy, for embedding the cellphone video clip. Thank you, Brendan Michael, for posting the moment on Facebook (where did the clip itself originate?). If the MSM were really interested, they would already have sought out video showing the actual act; there already were many outlets videoing, wouldn’t be that hard… if they REALLY wanted to do so. No less than her own spoken apology will do.

    Actually, the marathon hasn’t been the same since the mid 1980’s. I can remember when anyone could run, and anyone and everyone did run. At the end, people rode their bikes along the route. Then it changed. They turned it into a professional sporting event, and if you didn’t qualify, you had to pay a large sum of money to one of their approved charities, I believe. A number of sponsors pulled out at that time.

      OK Mo’Nique. Lets make it about money not fabric. My principle charitable giving has been to the Dana Farber BMJW for more than 25 years. IF this beast is not fired and publicly humiliated in giving an apology, wearing a MAGA hat no less, I’m pulling my financial support. Dana Farber and the BAA are tied at the hip. Lets see if money talks.

    I just love it how she and other radicals are pushing to take our guns away from us, instead of insisting that we enforce existing gun laws. In almost every situation where you hear about someone, usually a gangbanger, being arrested for committing a violet crime, he is usually out on bail (I mean personal recognizance) for armed robbery, attempted murder, or some other crime involving a gun.

    If they really wanted to solve the problem, we would have an automatic death sentence for anyone committing a crime with a gun.

    As for the flag, what happened is a total disgrace, but this type of behavior is what the SJW’s have been supporting all along. To them, the flag is a symbol of fear and hate, because, fear and hate are what most SJW’s represent.

    April 16, 2019 at 5:54 am

    The whole running and marathon culture is filled with left wing honks so I am sure she will be martyred. The media won’t spend 30 seconds reporting on this. Had it been a rainbow flag thrown aside by a conservative then it would be front page news for days. I wish next year someone would throw the Ethiopian flag on the ground as the men’s winners are awarded and see how much coverage that gets? Not that I have anything against Ethiopia but to show these assholes how other cultures feel about their flag and what it symbolizes. A pretty sad
    statement on the current mindset of a great many in this country IMO.

    A simple “I fucked up, I’m sorry” would do, but this cunt and the current shits that run that org don’t think they owe anyone that. An antiseptic “We are going to review our awards protocols” is fucking stupid and is said by someone with a tin ear for how it sounds.

          Weather: channel 25 sheri spears the weather pixie, she’s a spinner that looks like she’s be dynamite in the sack.

          Anchor: channel 7 amaka ubaka- somedays id think I’d like to try to take a ride on that, other days I think it would be like being with one of smollets attackers.
          Weather girl: depends on the day, channel 5 kelly Ann is hot and has some breeding hips, but channel 7 Jackie layer is young and perty.

      2014: $0 (averaged 15 hours/week)

      Contributions/grants were 5.6 to 8.3 million for those years. Looking at those forms, the BAA reported that a large chunk of expenses are to the various towns that this race effects.
