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.
Two Little Miami football players pay the price for civil disobedience. They were told not to carry onto the field thin blue line and thin red line flags at their 9/11 game. They did anyway. The school has now suspended them from the team indefinitely. #ThinBlueLine #ThinRedLine pic.twitter.com/19y9GAvaxr

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.
WATCH: Fans Boo Social Justice Display At NFL Wokeball Opening Night
The fans are sick of it.
Fans booed a social justice performance at the NFL’s opening game on Thursday night, held in Kansas City between the Chiefs and the Houston Texans.
The field had been decorated with blaring social justice messages, imploring everyday football fans with two endzone slogans of “end racism”(as if it were within their power) and remind them that “it takes all of us.” It’s unclear what they think it’s going to take every person to solve.
The teams also declined to come out of the locker room to recognize the national anthem before the game, starting off with the third social justice display of the night before kickoff even took place. They stayed inside for both the Star-Spangled Banner and the so-called black national anthem, a song that the NFL has decided to play in conjunction with the anthem to honor social justice causes.
When the members of the Chiefs and the Texans met at midfield for what seemed to be the fifth or sixth racial justice event of the night, fans seemed to have finally had enough. Boos could be heard resonating throughout the stadium as the team’s remaining fans made their feelings clear on the seeming onslaught of progressive propaganda.
The public perception of sports leagues in America has declined considerably, as leagues formerly focused on sport and competition transform themselves wholly into engines to provide lectures to Americans seeking a reprieve from the continual onslaught of the liberal religion.
