Iowa high school OFFENDED because opposing basketball fans wore AMERICAN COLORS to game

70

Incredible. The school whose fans wore American colors is apologizing to the other team for doing so. North school officials should be apologizing to Valley for anyone being offended. “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.” Really? So “diverse” as to be offended by the American colors? Then why are they in America at all? Saudi Arabia is lovely this time of year.

“Valley defends USA-themed student section after criticism,” KCCI, March 9, 2017 (thanks to Todd):

DES MOINES, Iowa — The Valley Tigers bested the North Polar Bears 57-55 Wednesday night, but it wasn’t the slim 2-point loss that’s causing controversy.

Some North fans said the Valley crowd, decked out in red, white and blue in an America-inspired theme night — a trend among students to dress up at athletic activities — was meant to be a political statement aimed at mocking the more notably diverse North High School.

“A lot of people were very upset about it,” North sophomore DeNasja Spencer said. “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.”

Tyreke Locure, a sophomore starting point guard for the boys basketball team, said he didn’t notice the tension among the crowds until after the game.

“Everybody on the North side had on North shirts, and to be dressed in American flags, that was just different for us,” Locure said. “Everybody from the Des Moines area (was) just tweeting crazy, and I can say I fell into the trap just because I was frustrated we lost.”

But the tradition, Valley fans said, is nothing new.

“We had a USA theme, which we’ve done many times in the past,” Valley freshman Dayna Dunnwald said. “It’s really sad, and I hope everyone can resolve it in the end because no one at Valley meant it in that way. And it was just for fun.”

A letter written by Valley student council leaders was hand-delivered to North’s principal, saying in part: “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.”…

    Those who are offended by American flag should be fined $1000 for first offence and one month jail with daily repetition of pledge of allegiance before Lunch and dinner or no food. watch how this crap stops.

    unless this is done , this Left/Liberals/jihadi anti-American crap will contrinue. Left/Liberals are just Anti-American collaborator with jihadis.

    Obama. Hillary , most Dems , RINO’s have been working against American interests for a long time . And are nothing more than paid puppets of lobbyists for saudi/OIC and Iran too http://tinyurl.com/njzxzed

    What a bunch of limp dicks, iowa, now they are offended by colours. They are to be ridiculed, mocked and otherwise called fools.

      The
      sad part, Mahou, is that after 8 years of the Obama presidency America is
      rotting within, ashamed to be proud Americans. Can you imagine
      apologizing for this? Can you imagine the North being offended that the
      Valley school wore American colours? You are right, the Valley student,
      in fact a weak kneed coward, should rather have told the other school to
      “suck it up”. Until this sickness goes America will never be
      great again, U.S. Navy ships will change course to avoid Iranian provocation in
      little boats and American sailors will cry like babies when captured by the
      enemy. America badly needs a form of spiritual nenewal. If it doesn’t happen America will never
      be great again!

    How will the western civilization succumb to islam? –

    While the west is very well-equipped against a physical threat…..the west is defenseless against a cultural threat.
    And the islamic threat is cultural, not physical. The physical threat posed by muslim terrorists, is itself in furtherance of cultural ends.
    In the way that weapons are countered with weapons, culture needs to be countered with culture.
    The west, instead of having a culture that defends itself from the islamic threat, has a culture that is so clinically insane that it has given islam immunity through religious freedom law, and it has given muslims immunity through no-discrimination law. The western culture and laws are—instead of thwarting its enemies—designed in such a way as to give protection to its enemies.
    This is not just self-destructive – This is the precise opposite of what should occur when the culture is threatened. Instead of driving away the islamic threat, the west is absorbing it. As it stands, it is only a matter of time when islam prevails. The question is not – Will islam dominate the west. The question is – When will islam dominate the west.

    • Toy Pupanbai

      For a country to defend itself, it must refuse to accept that the THEOCRATIC IDEOLOGY of ISLAM/Mohammedanism, is a RELIGION.
      Thus it will be denied a favored legal camouflage.

    I cannot remember the film, but I think i remember when the actor John Wayne spoke the line ” don’t apologise, it’s a sign of weakness”. I apologise when deservedly caught out, but over that issue above, never in a kingdom of cow tails.

    I know Henry Fonda was a lefty, but all the heroes of my youth like the above, James Stewart, Dale Robertson, Rod Steiger, Ernest Borgnine, Clint Eastwood Charlton Heston, Robert Mitchum etc were men that impressed me to try and live up to the example they set. I’m sorry I cannot feel that way today over contempory acting talents.

    Absolute madness. The American flag unites all people who love that wonderful nation. I’d say the Polar bears need to re-evaluate their allegiance or go back to where they came from. The Bears should have written to the Tigers and thanked them for wearing the colors of the flag they love so much.

    What a bunch of losers. When are true Americans going to wake up and realize “diversity” destroys neighborhoods and communities.

    Now, for the perps offended by the red , white, and blue. If this nation is so awful why not move to a more tolerant place such as Iran, Syria, or Saudi Arabia. I’ll drive you savages to the airport myself.

    One more thing, if you were offended at our nation’s colors you’ll probably be offended by t shirts I wear honoring law enforcement officers who were MURDERED by your kind. If you choose to express to me that you’re offended by what I’m wearing, do expect a very hostile reaction. If you choose to get violent about it, #yourlifedoesnotmatter to me.

    How could any TRUE American ever take opposition to our flag ! Seriously need to just leave and go somewhere your not offended to be an American in! Even if you were born here traders!
    It’s should be seen as honorable to wear the national colors and the team that made this an issue are a disgrace and need to APOLOGIZE! Also be forced to take a classe on what it means to be an American, then fined and have their team dissolved or suspended from sports !

    IF you are offended by American colors maybe you don’t belong here? And second, now you offended those people by being offended.

    So funny…..

  • Idadho

    Red, White and Blue are colors that don’t run. The student council leaders need to resign and let true leaders lead.
    So, I guess they don’t start by playing the national anthem. Trum should cancel any federal dollars to North High School until they teach respect for the Red, White and Blue.

    • Craig

      You have that same problem in Boise. When the Kalifornia Kommies moved to Boise, they have turned that (once really great town) upside down. They are constantly bringing homos into the schools to teach homosexuality and now Boise has car emissions checks. The dumb Kalifornians move to get away from the insanity, then they demand the same insanity for where they move to.

      • Idadho

        The emissions were a result of federal clean air standards and achieving MSA status. Now, even Canyon County has emission testing. It is the academics who bring liberalism and progressivism. The KK are no help, though. Now, the only TV station that did not spout liberal bias has been bought by Gannett and is getting locked into letting NBC New York tell them how to report the news.

  • Craig

    REMEMBER: it is the LEFT that hates the United States. It is the LEFT that supports communism.
    democrats are the enemy.

  • Craig

    You can blame this type of reaction to the widespread use of welfare. The more people become democrat parasites the more they regurgitate the anti-American democrat propaganda.

  • MrLogical

    Folks, don’t be surprised. Thanks to the work of committed Communists in the Frankfurt School in the late 1920s, this is what 80+ years of Cultural Marxism looks like.

    For nearly a century, Communists have been taking aim at capitalism in general and America in particular.

    The Comintern long ago labeled America “The Main Enemy” in the sense that they wish to destroy us. Not by military means, but by attacking and conquering us from within – penetrating and conquering our society and pillar institutions using the weapon of ‘critical theory’ or, as we have re-labeled it, “Political Correctness.” As such, they have attacked the academy, the media, courts, government, popular culture, philanthropies, our schools… even our churches.

    Their standard bearer of Cultural Marxism is the ‘new’ (aka, progressive…) Democrat Party, which was penetrated by the Communists in the 1930s and essentially taken over in the post-war decades of the ’50s and ’60s.

    This sort of thing is going to become increasingly prevalent until such time as constitutional conservatives decide to fight back with the same sort of tactics: viz., regaining control of our pillar institutions, starting with our K-12 educational system and our colleges and universities where this ant-American rot is promoted.

    Don’t apologize, don’t back down, and don’t let your children fall prey to their PC ideology.

    Fight back.

    • Janet

  • santashandler

    Shame on them for apologizing. They should have worn those colors straight for the next month to protest the other teams’ ‘sensitivity.’

    • gia

      I totally agree . Everyone commenting here should write two letters one in protest over the anti American team and the other to the patriotic team in regard to why they should not have apologized and need to keep wearing red white and blue.

  • Drew the Infidel

    If North high school is offended by the American flag, perhaps they should go find a country that suits them.

  • Janet

    WTH! Why are they apologizing? So the other team is more diverse big deal! They’re either going to support this country or at the very least stop getting offended by people who do. Stories like this really make me angry! So sick of the left and their American hating attitude. If you are bothered by the colors of our flag then maybe this isn’t the country for you!

    Hey Pam and friends. I am an avid daily reader. Thank you so much. The Geller report is my go to news of the world at war and you allow me to get a glimpse…a feel for what is going on in a nation under siege, though not entirely defeated. The USA is the flag bearer for freedom around the world. Don’t think for one minute that I am so blind as to not recognise the dreadful mistakes and abuses your nation has committed both at home and abroad. I see fairly clearly. As a 21 year old, I camped a week outside Regan’s White House (quite a privilege for a young Aussie…or anyone really), and I love the idea of freedom to say your piece. Mine was ostensibly about nuclear matters . You are very brave Pamela Geller and I have you on my prayer list (I am a Rosary praying Catholic). May the Lord guide and protect you Pamela. May He also protect America and the President, his family and administration. My advice: Repent and seek the Lord while He still may be found and never give up. The Lord’s name is Jesus (in case you were wondering).

    How are the IDs at North HS being educated past and present to have no sense of love and belonging for their own FLAG. Seriously what are the teachers teaching in the early grades for them to feel this way ? I was taught love respect oneness belonging.
