Students Offend By Wearing Red, White, And Blue To Valley High School Basketball Game

Valley, IA – Valley High School students are being called offensive for wearing red, white, and blue to a basketball game.

Fox Insider reports that the students were spotted wearing patriotic colors while attending a basketball game. The school was playing against Des Moines North High School which has some students who are refugees.

“Any normal person, any educated person can look at that and think what the hell are these kids thinking,” said Valley High School Coach Morgan Wheat.

There’s no explanation for why normal or educated people are supposed to know that wearing your national flag’s colors is somehow offensive to guests to the country. Either the coach knows something we don’t, or this is a bunch of nonsense.

The students apologized and said that the America themed attire was worn at previous games with no problems, and wasn’t meant to target any group of students.

Student leaders sent the following apology to Des Moines North High:

It has been brought to our attention that the decision by the Valley High School student section to wear U.S.A. apparel at our game last night was offensive to members of your community and fan base. We are deeply sorry if we have offended anyone in any way. We have traditionally dressed in such a fashion for great games such as the one last night. Everyone here at Valley has immense respect not only for your team and players but for your community as a whole. Please know that our intent was in no way to offend or demean—just to support our own team in a way we have done before.

Do you think that the students need to be more considerate, or is this political correctness out of control? We’d like to hear what you think. Please let us know in the comments.

    This is utter nonsense. No apologies should be allowed. These people need to grow a spine…

  • Hard Corps

    Asshattery at it’s best!

  • arnie

    No damn apology to anyone….Where the hell are the parents of the team and fans?

  • alfa1020

    Political correctness gone berserk. The other team should accept and respect the colour support of the home team – the National colours. Today’s society just give in to the demands of “refugees”. The refugees should respect the team they are visiting period.

    FUCK THE LIBERAL MAGGOTS be proud and wear the res white and blue 🙂 It seems as how much they love AMERICA they should wear it also or get the heck oput:)

    There should be NO apology given to anyone! They did absolutely nothing wrong and the refugees need to go back to their country if they are so offended here. Valley High school students, keep wearing the red, white and blue and never back down for anyone.

  • george orwell

    They apologized because they’ve been beaten down like dogs so long with PC horse-s**t that even perceived offense makes everyone crazy. So the other school has refugees? So what? They’re guests to OUR country, and seeing RW&B should make them happy, since we are literally hosting them from whatever hellhole they need refuge.

    But yet in all the protests you see Mexican National Flags, people wearing Mexican Flag Shirts, and speaking Spanish so no one can understand them.

  • sammy

    If refugees are offended by Red, White and Blue then why are they here? They are here by our generosity and good will. They are not allowed to get offended.

  • Lynn B

    More Bull Sh*t !!! This is AMERICA OUR FLAG and Wearing of Red, White And Blue is a Part of Us. If People don’t like it TO DAMN BAD !! Don’t Like it LEAVE !!!!!

  • Dave G

    The only apology should come from the people that live in this country that claim to be offended by our national colors. You offend the rest of us.

  • kpow

    So ridiculous. Immigrants used to be happy to come here and kiss the ground when they arrived. They need to remember there is a reason they left their country and came here. It is a great country and we should be proud and we should be proud to wear our colors. If they dont like it it means they dont love our country and they should leave. They need to change for us not us for them.

  • FTW59

    Screw these animals who come here and demand us to accommodate them. America first.

  • Mike Griffin

    Nonsense. This is America. Our flag colors are the red, white and blue. Part of the immigration process is assimilation. We aren’t asking them to change their religion, but if they are going to live here, become citizens … they need to get over it and get used to it. Are we going to stop flying the flag to keep from offending them or making them uncomfortable? Nope.

  • Lawman49

    A$$ kissing, progressive coach! These kids are proud Americans! I cannot say what I think this “coach” is! As for the refugees,. Don’t like the colors? You know the Alternatives! GTFO!

  • Teddy

    What is the matter with these school officials? You don’t apologize for your country. This snowflake attitude has to stop.


    what a joke and for the people who wrote the apologies go bury your heads in the ground. you wear the flag colors of the United States of America then apologies for it, you have just dishonored every American and American soldier.
