NCAA Football Star Threatens Boycott Over Head Coaches T-Shirt
Oklahoma State star running back Chuba Hubbard on Monday attacked is head coach Mike Gundy for daring to wear a t-shirt of a conservative news site that he feels is not acceptable.
Today for the woke crowd, not only do you have to agree with what their position is, but if you dare to watch or listen to anything they deem inappropriate, that is entirely unacceptable; they are the new thought police.
Hubbard ran for more than 2,000 yards and scored 21 touchdowns for the Cowboys in 2019, making him an All-American and the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year, according to KFOR-TV.
To criticize Black Lives Matter, a group we feel is a domestic terrorist group is 100% unacceptable to leftist students; but the coach here never took our stance, he just dared to wear a shirt of a news site that dared to criticize them. One has to wonder, since when did this group become so precious that they are to remain free from any criticism.
A chain reaction of tweets followed by current and former players.
Oklahoma State president Burns Hargis then issued a statement amid silence on the part of Gundy.
“I hear and respect the concerns expressed by our Black student-athletes,” Hargis said. “This is a time for unity of purpose to confront racial inequities and injustice. We will not tolerate insensitive behavior by anyone at Oklahoma State.”
It turns out the thought police not only think they have a right to dictate what you do, say, or even think while working in any capacity representing the school. They also believe this extends to a person’s private life. The coach was not representing the school, he was on a fishing trip, but that is not acceptable, he dared wear a shirt of a network that dared not agree with the riots, looting and constant feelings of being victims that Black Lives Matter is teaching.
This is the problem with these schools; you are not allowed any room for your own opinion, either follow the far left way of thinking or be barred and run out on a rail.
Oklahoma State athletic director Mike Holder released a statement later Monday calling the comments from players “of grave concern.”
Some pushed back about the rush to judgment.
This is not the only time this coach has referred to OAN. In April, Gundy talked about the media’s coverage of the coronavirus pandemic and cited One America News, according to a transcript of his comments posted by The Oklahoman.
“It was really interesting to me to see with the mainstream media, sadly enough, just how negative everybody can be. And let’s just report the news. Let’s start putting some things in there that are positive, because I know there’s positive out there. I’ve talked to people that are working in the medical field, they’re hands-on, they’re in these hospitals, they’re in these doctors’ offices, they’re seeing us recover from this. We’re not hearing any of that,” he said.
“And so my personal opinion is from the mainstream media, I’m a little disappointed in all the negativity, for whatever reason. I don’t know if it’s politically driven or not. But I think it’s time to start talking about some of the positives of what the people are doing to make it better, and the medical support and the reading in the study and the emergency release of the FDA products to try to get some drugs back to help people.
“So, that’s my personal opinion. Everybody has a right to an opinion. My opinion is let’s start getting some of the positive things out as we continue to fight this. Now, I know medical professions have to keep the danger out there so people will stay home. I’m not disagreeing with that. But I just haven’t been real happy with the mainstream media and the way they’ve handled that,” he continued.
“I tell you what’s funny is, I was flipping through stations. I found one — I don’t even know if anybody knows about this — it’s called OAN. It’s One America News. And it was so refreshing. They just report the news. There’s no commentary. There’s no opinions on this. There’s no left. There’s no right. They just reported the news. And I’ve been watching them the last week, because they’ve given us the news and given us more information — in my opinion — some of the positives are coming out. So, that was refreshing,” he said.
The problem today is the woke left is demanding complete subservience to their dogma; they’re now trying to run people out of the schools that refuse to follow their doctrine. These so-called institutions of learning have become indoctrination camps; any differing thoughts are attacked with the same zealousness seen from the inquisitors so many years ago.
Welcome to the Leftist utopia.
