The entire Garfield High School football team in Seattle, including the coaches, did the Kaepernick kneel down and disrespected the fallen heroes of the U.S.A. Friday night before their game.
Their head coach, Joey Thomas said the team is trying to bring attention to “social injustice” and they will continue until they are told to stop.
Since when is a high school football team supposed to be about the business of correcting “social injustice?”
Public schools today are in the business of raising up a generation of “social justice warriors.” No longer is it their mission to educate children for the academic challenges of tomorrow.
Take a look at the multi-million dollar Southwest Athletic Complex where they played their game. Looks like they are suffering some serious injustice there (insert eye rolling here).
Seattle Public Schools issued the following statement: “Students kneeling during the national anthem are expressing their rights protected by the First Amendment. Seattle Public Schools supports all students’ right to free speech.”
What a bunch of blather.
Public schools support free speech as long as it’s speech they agree with. Anyone remember how quickly all public institutions, schools included, got rid of the “Confederate Flag” last year? Free speech doesn’t ban flags.
This is about an agenda – not free speech, and anyone who is claiming otherwise is being intellectually dishonest.
