Students apologize for wearing 'offensive' red, white and blue to basketball game because opposing team had refugee players

StaffRebel Columnist

Students at Valley High School in Iowa were forced to apologize for 'offending' members of Des Moines North High by wearing red, white and blue colours to a basketball game.

According to Fox News, some of the rival school's players were from refugee families and that apparently made the patriotic colours offensive.

Morgan Wheat, an assistant coach at Des Moines North told WHOTV, “Any normal person, any educated person can look at that and think, ‘What the hell are these kids thinking?'”

Student leaders at Valley High School kowtowed and offered an apology letter to Des Moines North. The letter said, “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. We are deeply sorry if we have offended anyone in any way.”

The letter then defended the decision. “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.”

The Des Moines North coach doesn't think it's fair to assume the students were trying to make a political statement. “I don't want to judge those young people not knowing their motives. ... We're proud of our diversity at North High School -- not only on our basketball team, but our population,” Chad Ryan said.

The younger generations are totally indoctrinated.
Guess they don’t mind not having a future.

Oh, we are so screwed over.

So, should the American students show up in the colours of Syria, Sudan, Ethiopia, Morocco, Italy, what is left of Sweden or Germany? How about the colours and flag of Russia, as there was probably at least one Russian born student (or child of a Russian migrant) in the crowd.

Crap like this is no less than rolling over and dying. Make a Politically Correct law forbidding Political Correctness and watch heads explode! Justin “Baby Doc”, wrap your little mind around that. I can hardly wait to hear the big boom coming from Ottawa!

Actually, Peter, it never says the refugees were offended. The SJW, took offence on their behalf. What a wonderful world when we are so attuned to every possible grievance that we can apologize before any statement of having been offended is made. We are finally making a society. IF you enjoy being labelled as offensive before you have done anything, thank an SJW.

People get offended way too easily. We live in an age of pansies and wimps!

The appeasement mentality at any cost is dangerous. Why send a letter of apology, nothing to be sorry for. The coach should have called a press conference to educate the public about how the refugees living in Iowa are offended by the flag etc….not integrating and politicizing High School basketball. The fans should dress head to toe in red, white and blue at the next game and every game after that! Bring the biggest American flag they can find; and have the flag circulated around the stands by the people. Turn up the volume on the sound system for the Star Spangled Banner and ask everyone to sing, hand out the lyrics to everyone and maybe the refugees will learn something that night!

F**k refugees! You come here – Either FIT IN or F**k OFF!! …way off!
I am way more OFFENDED by their FGM, decapitations, their loud obnoxious calls to prayer (praying to a deaf devil!), their hiding beautiful women under tarps, their disgusting TAQIYYA & JAZIYA – well in general I am just offended with them being here – period!

So then, everything in America would be offensive. Will have to shut down the whole country soon.

Alice, as in Wonderland, may well have said, ‘The World gets Stupider and Stupider’

To hell with the Muslim refugees, if they find the West offensive, they can always go back home. We do not need this Tribal Claptrap.

If these people wish to come to the West, they must learn to become Westerners.

This may be this hard for them because it means becoming civilized.

Unfortunately a lot of the Western Leaders, seem to prefer them as the Savages they are.

GENOCIDE, anybody?

Time to round up all these useless refugees and send them back to the shit holes their fathers created for them.
