The left and their minions in the Black Lives Matter movement have done all they can to demean all of those who stand proudly to protect our great nation. It started with the military when professional football players began to kneel in protest of the national anthem. It then morphed into a disgusting display of unpatriotic actions geared toward anyone that loves this nation.
After successfully turning every sports event into a political statement, these ungrateful activists turned their attention to the police force. When Americans stood proudly to show their support of those brave men and women who put their lives on the line each day, the supporters were called racists.
While students are allowed to proudly show their support for the BLM in school, those who show support for the police by wearing a thin blue line are punished.
Here is more from Opposing Views:
A New York school district banned its staff from wearing a sweatshirt with a thin blue line patch designed in honor of an NYPD officer who was shot dead in 1976.
Cheryl Champ, the Pelham Public Schools superintendent, sent a message to employees informing them that the flag was banned, as it “has increasingly been perceived by students to be threatening in nature,” and has been making them feel “unsafe.”
The sweatshirt, designed by 44-year-old Carla Caccavale, daughter of late Transit Police Detective George Caccavale, was sold to raise money for police charities. This came after a K-9 dog was named Vale as a tribute to her late father.
However, after several Pelham school officials bought the sweatshirts, Champ emailed them to inform them that the sweatshirts, as well as masks with the thin blue line, were banned. No other movements were banned in Champ’s initial email.
Carla stated that she “is not into politics at all,” and that, “This was never about politics. It was about honoring my father.”
Carla was 20 days old when her father, aged 33, died while working at his second job at a check cashing store.
She stated: “This is not Black Lives Matter versus police. This was never the intent when we created the sweatshirt.”
In a follow-up email sent on November 3, Champ wrote: “I recognize that in these heightened political times, these decisions, which were made on a case-by-case basis, have become intertwined and perceived by some to reflect a political leaning on behalf of myself and the district. Like many symbols whose meaning has been co-opted over time, the thin blue line flag has increasingly been perceived by students to be threatening in nature, causing them to feel unsafe within our schools.”
If a student feels unsafe by someone showing support for a fallen officer, then they need to seek therapy and stop making the rest of us feel bad. The time for placating these crybabies is over and it is time that we stand up and say, enough is enough.
