Prominent Division 1 College Football Team to Wear ‘BLM’ Stickers On Helmets During Games

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THE ORIGINAL FULL STORY


The following article, Prominent Division 1 College Football Team to Wear ‘BLM’ Stickers On Helmets During Games, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Sports are really, really, really messing up right now. Basketball, baseball, football, etc., used to be places people could go to escape reality and watch grown men play a child’s game at a high level.

Now, though, and most likely forever more, sports and politics will be intertwined.

It’s here to stay, y’all. Most likely.

From The Daily Wire:

The head coach of the University of Memphis football team, Ryan Silverfield, announced that his team will wear “BLM” stickers on their helmets this season, apparently making them the first Division I football team to do so.

Silverfield tweeted, “This season, for every game, our student-athletes’ helmets will have a BLM sticker. #ALLINagainstRACIALINJUSTICE.” He told The Memphis Commercial Appeal, “The use of the BLM logo on a helmet decal was an idea from our student-athletes. It doesn’t mean we support any anti-American, violent organization or hate group or any specific political party. In fact, I love this country and I love our players. Rather the decal is a show of support to our team.”

A statement from the school:

There’s ignorant and then there’s just plain over-the-moon absurd.

This professor from Chico State University managed to hit all the wrong buttons and firmly placed herself atop the list of most ridiculous people.

Check it out, via Breitbart:

A professor at Chico State (CSU, Chico) referred to President Donald Trump and the Republican Party as “poison,” and suggested that she and other professors use the “immense privilege” they have as “tenured faculty” to protect students who are offended by their classmates exercising their First Amendment rights. The instructor told Breitbart News that the First Amendment allowing the school’s College Republicans to “voice their support for Trump and — the Republican Party” is “intensely hurtful” to many students on campus.

Professor Lindsay Briggs, who without question doesn’t understand what the First Amendment is about, whined “The First Amendment protects our Republican Club students to voice their support for Trump and their support of the Republican Party. That is intensely hurtful to many of our students on campus.

A tweet from Briggs:

Chico State — you have homework to do over break. Time to do an honest personal inventory and decide where you will stand as things escalate towards elections.

Briggs is, well, something else…

Just being a leech and drinking my socialist power juice while all these hardworking people show me how not poisonous they are by calling me names on the internet. Just another day in my glamorous life!

I needed a folder to keep all my love notes in 💕

The 1st week of class, I own my biases & tell students what they are. That way they can figure out for themselves if they agree with me or not. I tell them my classes build critical thinking skills & they are free to think whatever they want as long as they have thought it out.

So unlike many people’s presumptions, my classroom is a place to learn your own values and practice speaking up for your ideas. Hardly the indoctrination factory people seem to think it is. But then, you’d have to go deeper than tired attack points to understand that. Pity.

I don’t adhere to arbitrary codes of social conduct such a “politeness” & “being ladylike” or “being ashamed of my actions.” If that’s what you’re here to say, it won’t have an impact. And unlike Michelle Obama, I don’t go high because you go low. I will go lower. See above.

I was not born to be pleasing to others. I have an equal number of people who dislike me on the left and the right. My truth and justice don’t waver for popularity points. Love me, hate me, it doesn’t matter to me. It’s called self esteem and radical love of self. Try it.

That raised fist is symbolic of the Black Panthers, which is a Marxist group who pushes ‘Black Power”. The media goes insane anytime they believe a white person makes a hand signal for “White Power” and they look for this even where it does not exist so they can excoriate the person whom they are accusing of being ‘racist’. Why is this raised fist, which means “Black Power” not equally excoriated as a racist symbol, which is what it is? My husband and I have decided we are not watching college or pro football or NBA games this year, or… Read more »

Chico State.. bwahahahahaha Jabba the Briggs is but another self-back patting illiberal ahem, ‘intellect’ prof.. though @ Chico freakin’ State!!’ That’s a garbage school. My sis did her undergrad there. Didn’t even crack open a book. There’s no ‘critical thinking’ or rational thought about this political agenda driven ‘heffer‘. Just another illiberal dum dum possessing no humility, restraint nor character. As mentioned the broad doesn’t understand, respect nor admire the 1st Amendment is for ALL. Look at the site ratemyprof.. Briggs is an EEO hire ding-dong whose ‘class’ is a breeze & joke. Or the nonsensical programs tons of no-fun… Read more »
