Washington high school cancels red, white, and blue spirit wear tribute in honor of 9/11 victims because it might “offend some who see it differently” and would be "racially insensitive" 🤡

Sep 14th

People like this are the worst.

At Eastlake High School in Sammamish, student leadership promoted a Patriot's Day theme at a football game at Memorial Stadium against Rainier Beach. The game was previously canceled, then rescheduled to the day before the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks. Students wanted to do something to remember the tragic events. But staff intervened.

According to an email obtained by the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH, the principal said wearing those colors could "unintentionally cause offense to some who see it differently." Students are upset. And some parents now speculate school officials thought their majority-minority opponents would be offended by American pride.

This is absolutely horrific.

How messed up of a person do you have to be to believe that America is so evil, and her flag so oppressive, that you cancel a patriotic display honoring the 3,000 lives that were gruesomely taken in a mass murder event?

It gets worse though.

One student said they asked their student leaders why the teachers and administrators had made the decision and were told that wearing red, white, and blue would be "racially insensitive."

But the themed event was canceled by Eastlake staff at the last minute. Students learned of the decision Friday morning during announcements.

"At this point, I was fairly upset and confused as to why the theme was changed so I went around asking students in our leadership," one student told the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH. "They had explained that red, white, and blue was going to be seen as racially insensitive and may affect people in a way that we will not understand and for that reason that we were to change our theme."

If you can't unite under the flag that represents the nation, then there is no nation.

These people are far more offensive than the "offense" they claim to be stopping.

"There is always the potential that someone may be offended by something but this decision baffles me," [one mother] wrote. "I would argue that many more people are offended by the decision to ban the theme of wearing red, white and blue. If there is one thing that has the potential to unite us all, it's that we are Americans."

This was the school's weaksauce reply:

Neither Principal Bede nor district communications director Shannon Parthemer explained who would take offense. And why is wearing red, white, and blue offensive to begin with? No one would say.

The answer is likely that they believe America is systemically evil and must be rebuilt on neo-Marxism to reach an "inclusive" utopia.

But I doubt you'll hear them say that out loud.

"I was instantly upset, and frustrated," one student emailed. "If Eastlake is all about including everyone's beliefs and being together as a ‘family,' then why are we being told we can't represent the country we live in? I have seen other [Lake Washington School District] football teams that held a flag or did some sort of memorial recognition towards 9/11, but apparently we weren't allowed to even wear USA colors."

This here is proof that our kids have a chance to resist the brainwashing of the woke cult.

Especially since these totalitolerant, aNti-RaCiSt administrators might have made the call for an extremely, extremely racist reason.

On a Facebook page for Eastlake High School parents, several expressed outrage and concern over the move. Some speculated over the intent.

"The leadership and equity team decided that since it was against a predominantly Black team they did not want to ‘unintentionally cause offense to some who see (our flag) differently,'" one parent speculated.

Another parent responded to the speculation, calling out the school's possible motive.

"Sounds presumptive and condescending to me — in fact, probably racist," the parent said.

If true, it would indeed be racist, but we're not allowed to talk about that these days.

What a bunch of crummy school leaders. If there's one system in America that's systemically rotten and needs to be completely rebuilt, it's our education system. What a travesty.
