wonder why charges of racism are not taken seriously?????
So being anti Muslim and anti black is a mainstream view on the right now. At least you're honest about it

From the NWSL players guidebook :

54.3.3. Improper conduct includes but is not limited to invading or attempting to invade the demarcated area, throwing or attempting to throw projectiles or bottles, damage or attempted damage to property, letting off or attempting to let off incendiary devices, displaying insulting or political slogans, uttering insulting words or sounds, smoking or contravening any statute, regulation or by-law;
[/SIZE][SIZE=3]

54.3.6.7. any act which insults someone in any way, especially by using offensive gestures or language, or by violating the principles of fair play or by behaving in an unsporting way;
[/SIZE]


Of course it is. How else could it possibly work? The governing body/employer/whatever has to determine what is too much or too far.

Horse ****!

They can support every left-wing, anti-American, anti-white, anti-male principle that has found a place to exist in the PC rule book and they will be just fine.

Blacks are victims of whites, period!

Homosexuality is fundamentally good and must be accepted as both natural and normal.

In all cases, women are oppressed and denied opportunities by men.


What gets them in trouble is straying from liberal orthodoxy.

The reason for this is simple.

Political correctness is the policing of thought through the control of speech.

Without this control of speech, right-thinking and rational people will question the logic and validity of claims made by the PC thought police.

Such questions might include, "are blacks primarily the victims of whites, or are they the victims of other blacks and their own faulty decision making?", or "Since women continue to avoid many financially lucrative male-dominated career paths that involve dangerous work performed outdoors or in unpleasant, dirty environments, maybe we should accept that men are different from women in important ways."

When the answer to these questions and others like them become, "well, maybe...", the left's house cards, built on obvious lies, will come crashing down.

That can't be it. Otherwise, they wouldn't have been pushing contestants to "try on" hijabs. They are REQUIRING "controversial partisan" political views.

Those are rules governing behavior during competition events, not her personal time.

This story will die down as the social justice culture moves on to other targets in order to to destroy people's so called livelihood. People will need to be careful these days. Everyone is walking on eggshells.
Yep, she'll be fine. Her utterances will qualify her to join the rightwing media circuit - like Tomi Lahren, Candice Owens, Dinesh D'Souza.

She’ll be a correspondent in a few years.

Something even tells me she actually could have done this just to make a name for herself. But who knows.
