Imagine if back in 2011 some black cheerleaders held up a banner at a high school football game that said “Obama 2012 Hope & Change” Do you think they would have been reprimanded or punished in any way?
A high school in North Carolina has placed several of their cheerleaders on probation, after they were seen posing with a “Trump 2020” banner.
Controversy arose after members of the cheer squad at North Stanly High School in New London, N.C., posted a pre-game photo of themselves holding a Donald Trump 2020 banner that read, “Trump 2020 Make America Great Again.”
According to the Stanly News & Press the team was celebrating the school’s “American Night” at the football game where students were encouraged to wear red, white, and blue colors to show their patriotism.
The school claimed that when the photo was published online, it made some students feel “uncomfortable.”
The school sanctioned the team and placed them on probation for the remainder of the football season.
“One of the rules we have is that every contest should be conducted in a wholesome, athletic environment,” North Carolina High School Athletic Association Commissioner Que Tucker told the paper. “We take that to mean that it’s in an environment where good sportsmanship is shown, where people feel safe … that respect for all people participating is being shown.”
The paper added that the school punished the girls because “the incident caused concern for many and helped create a negative athletic environment.”
If those students said it made them uncomfortable to share a restroom with a dude in a dress, they would be denounced as bigots. If a high school principal disciplined some students for waving an Obama banner at a school rally he would be lucky to keep his job. Within hours there would be an angry mob of news media camped out in front of his home and his office. His whole family would get doxxed. Lawsuits would be filed seeking an injunction and a buttload of money.
A North Carolina school district canceled a football game on Friday ahead of a rally to support cheerleaders put on probation for holding a Trump 2020 banner at a game in late August.
The North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) said it canceled the game at North Stanly High School because “Stanly County Schools has been notified of additional information that could compromise safety measures our schools have in place for sporting events,” according to the Charlotte Observer.
However, that did not stop the cheerleader’s supporters from continuing with their plans to hold the rally outside the school’s football stadium in New London on Friday.
“There was no threat,” said organizer Jeremy Onitreb during the event. “Nobody’s coming up there to hurt the kids. It’s not what this was about.”
In a Facebook live video on the event page, Onitreb said the school district canceled the game because someone wanted to prohibit the cheerleaders from exercising their right to free speech.
Lemmee guess, was Antifa Claus coming to town? Were they threatening to loot and burn New London? Or was this all because some self-important Leftist school administrator wanted to show the kids who’s the boss.
Trump Derangement Syndrome is no joke. If you don’t believe me, just look at Mitt Romney. He has no sense of humor.
