It is "controversial" that some spectators wore USA red, white and blue colors at an Iowa state high school basketball tournament game last Wednesday, because one schools in the contest had a sizable refugee population.
Valley High School's colors are black and orange, but many in the stands had decided to wear the traditional colors of the USA. This led fans of Des Moines North High School to take issue with supporters of Valley High for their choice of attire. "A lot of people were very upset about it," North sophomore DeNasja Spencer said. "[T]hey should have switched that because everyone knows North is a more diverse school."
So, let me get this straight. Refugees are welcomed into the United States from countries where they had to flee for their lives and suddenly people wearing red,white and blue are offensive to them? Or is it that the busy-body Left, who are always offended by people having pride in the United States, are declaring for the refugees that they are offended?
If I were a refugee and was accepted into the United States as a sanctuary from the murderous chaos in my country I would celebrate my host country, not be offended by it. So, this stinks of Progressives creating an issue for ideological purposes. No one should have apologized to anyone.
Oh, and by the way, no one has a constitutional right not to be offended. It's time those of the soft ideological underbelly realize that some of us don't give a damn whether they are offended or not!
