Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy became the target of a furious politically correct online mob on Monday, for having the audacity to wear a shirt affiliated with a conservative media organization while on a private fishing trip.
A picture of Gundy wearing a shirt associated with One America News Network surfaced online Monday morning. OANN is a conservative-leaning TV channel known for infuriating the left, with mainstream media operatives continually pressing to deplatform it from White House Press Briefings.

Shortly after, Oklahoma State’s star player, running back Chuba Hubbard, announced that he would begin a boycott of the school, declining to play until “things change.”
I will not stand for this.. This is completely insensitive to everything going on in society, and it’s unacceptable. I will not be doing anything with Oklahoma State until things CHANGE. https://t.co/psxPn4Khoq

Burns Hagis, the University President, immediately caved to the thought-policing mob, claiming that the university community “wouldn’t stand for the insensitive behavior” of wearing an OANN shirt.
I hear and respect the concerns expressed by our Black student-athletes. This is a time for unity of purpose to confront racial inequities and injustice. We will not tolerate insensitive behavior by anyone at Oklahoma State.

Sports, one of the few cultural practices that formerly united the American people, no can no longer continue in large part due to the political animosity the left possess towards any nominal conservative-leaning individual associated with it.
Gundy has been the football coach of Oklahoma State for 15 years, and has been thought of as a historic figure for the school’s football program. Now, he will likely be fired for wearing a tshirt associated with a conservative news network in his free time.
College football no longer deserves your attention or your respect.
Ohio High School Football Players Reinstated After Suspension For Entering Field With Thin Blue Line, American Flags
Why were they even suspended?
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.
