Students attacked as racist for wearing American flag colors to basketball game
(INTELLIHUB) — In yet another shocking example of how far off the deep end liberals have gone, students at an Iowa high school are being attacked as racists for wearing red, white, and blue clothing to their schools most recent basketball game.
That’s right, hard-left identity politics has once again crossed the line into abject absurdity, ludicrously claiming that wearing patriotic colors is somehow racist because the other teams school is “diverse” as if that somehow means they aren’t American.
The faux outrage started after students from Valley High in Des Moines, Iowa organized a U.S.A. colors day, as they have done many times in the past, for their game against North High School.
This effort was somehow deemed “controversial” by students at North High because of the schools diverse student body.
“A lot of people were very upset about it,” North sophomore DeNasja Spencer told KCCI. “Even if that was their theme for the game, I feel like they should have switched that because everyone knows North is a more diverse school.”
Apparently the student quoted has been so brainwashed by leftist identity politics that she actually believes that American flag colors should be banned because her school is diverse. This is the liberal mindset in clear view for all to see.
The Daily Caller quoted a supposed Valley High alum named Ty Leggett who took the insanity even farther by claiming that wearing red, white, and blue is blatant racism.
“This is an example of BLATANT racism,” Leggett wrote. “ALL participating should have been pulled and banned from ALL VHS extracurricular events for the remainder of the year! As a parent, I’d be mortified that my son or daughter thought this way, acted in this fashion and refrained from taking a stand against this 21st century inexcusable behavior!”
Everyone that supports the country should be banned! It truly doesn’t get more insane than this.
Amazingly, despite the fact that anyone with a brain knows that wearing American flag colors is not racist, the “offending” school issued a statement literally apologizing for supporting the country and promising to not do such a horrible thing in the future.
“It has been brought to our attention that the decision by the Valley High School student section to wear U.S.A. apparel at our game last night was offensive to members of your community and fan base,” the statement read.
“We are deeply sorry if we have offended anyone in any way. We have traditionally dressed in such a fashion for great games such as the one last night. Everyone here at Valley has immense respect not only for your team and players but for your community as a whole. Please know that our intent was in no way to offend or demean—just to support our own team in a way we have done before.”
This is apparently the new normal in America. Globalist and leftist misinformation campaigns have gotten so bad that we are literally on the verge of banning the American flag over fears that it may offend someone.
