Miami’s Dwyane Wade Visits Marjory Stoneman Douglas Students: “I’m Inspired By All Of You”

Published

The Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade is the latest celebrity to go out of his way to heap praise upon the far-left students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, who have used their school’s tragedy to become minor celebrities while pushing for gun control.

Wade has been outspoken since the February 14th shooting at the Parkland, Florida school about his support for the student’s pushing for gun control, and visited the school on Wednesday to spend time with them.

“First of all, I am so excited to be back in this city, be back in this state,” Wade told the assembled students.

“I just want to come here today, and hopefully, for a moment, for a second, bring a little bit of this,” Wade said in a video posted to Twitter. “Bring a little excitement, bring a little joy.”

“What you guys have been going through and … how resilient you guys have been — I’ve been amazed from afar. I just wanted to come and say I’m inspired by all of you. As someone out here in the public eye, I am proud to say I’m from this state.”

Last week, Wade dedicated the rest of his season to Joaquin Oliver, a 17-year-old student killed in the Parkland shooting, who was buried wearing Wade’s No. 3 jersey.

The 15-year NBA veteran became emotional when talking about Oliver’s gesture, and went on to write Oliver’s name on his shoes prior to his team’s February 27th game against Philadelphia – a game in which he hit the game winning shot.

As expected, Wade’s visit to Parkland caused quite a stir on social media, as well.

One would assume that a better use of the student’s time, considering the amount of class time they’ve missed in the wake of the shooting, would actually be in class rather than drooling over yet another liberal celebrity trying to use a few 16-year-olds to force gun control on law abiding Americans.

But, of course, it is all about the children.

Ohio High School Football Players Reinstated After Suspension For Entering Field With Thin Blue Line, American Flags

Why were they even suspended?

Published

on

Two Little Miami, Ohio high school football players who were suspended from their team for entering a game while carrying the Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line(commemorating firefighters) flags have been freed from suspension, after community members expressed outrage at the punishment of the two young men.

Jarad Bentley and Brady Williams had been given an indefinite suspension from the Little Miami High School football team for carrying the two flags onto the field before a game, apparently violating a rule against political symbols. The two seniors reject the notion that they were making a political statement, and one of the boys had spoken of his intention to honor first responders, such as his own father, on the anniversary of 9/11.

After concerned parents and community members organized a protest event to stand with Williams and Bentley, the Little Miami School Board reversed its decision, freeing the senior players from suspension.

The President of the school board seemed keen to establish that the institution “supports police,” perhaps feeling the pressure from angry parents displeased to see the patriotic young men kicked from the football team for an innocuous display of patriotism.

They still might face some consequences, and reportedly team officials had commanded the players not to enter the field with the flags. Their punishment will be settled within the athletic department’s code of conduct.

College and high school sports teams put on elaborate displays in support of the left-wing Black Lives Matter movement all the time. Pro-police and firefighter flags are not a political statement by a long shot. This suspension never should’ve been issued in the first place.
