Liberals continue to defend the Muslim people in America, completely ignoring all of the hateful crimes, protests and even terrorist attacks caused by worshipers of the Islam religion.
They continue to claim that Islam is a “religion of peace.” No matter how many past events have proved them wrong.
Recently, during a Kansas college basketball game, one Muslim player disrespected our nation’s flag proving once again that they do not intend to make peace with the American people.
However, after the Garden City Community College Muslim student who was also a member of the college’s basketball team, decided to step on one of our nation’s greatest values, one patriot was completely disgusted by the whole situation and took matters into his own hands.
“Jim Howard, of Garden City, Kansas, is a red-blooded, American patriot and a faithful supporter of the athletic program at the local community,” reported Fox News’ Todd Starnes.
So when Howard saw the 19-year old Muslim college basketball player Rasool Samir shoot hoops while the National Anthem was being played, he immediately lost it as any other patriot would.
Seconds later he confronted the disrespecting player.
“I walked onto the floor and I told the guy he should respect the flag, and if he’s not going to respect the flag, he should get off the court and get out of the gym,” he told Fox News’ Todd Starnes Show.
“You should respect the flag. If you don’t respect the flag, just stay seated. Don’t make a big scene,” Mr. Howard added. “At least respect the people that paid for your scholarship to get you on this campus – like myself and everyone else in that gym.”
Moments later the police interfered, breaking things up and putting this young player in his place. The crowd on the other hand, showed great support for Mr. Howard’s act, cheering him and applauding him.
According to our source Silence is Consent:
The Garden City Telegram reported that a police officer broke up the confrontation – telling Mr. Howard to return to his seat and escorting the player off the court.
When that happened, a number of people in the stands gave Mr. Howard a standing ovation and some fans even came over to shake the man’s hand.
It seems, they too – had had enough.
“Everyone around town was patting me on my back and saying thank you,” he said.
The following day Samir was dismissed from the team.
However, there are two versions as to what happened. The local newspaper says it was Samir’s decision to leave. But the American Civil Liberties Union claims the young man was kicked off the team.
The Kansas chapter of the ACLU fired off a letter to the community college demanding answers and claiming that Samir’s constitutional rights were violated.
“He refrained from participating in the national anthem because he is a Muslim and his faith prohibits acts of reverence to anything but God,” the ACLU wrote in a letter to the school.
Well, if that’s the case, why didn’t Samir stay inside the locker room with the rest of the team during the national anthem?
“Samir was engaged in protected First Amendment activity when he declined to observe the national anthem,” the ACLU wrote. “Moreover, Samir’s objection was motivated by his religious beliefs and thus, was protected on free speech exercise grounds.”
If, in fact, Samir’s Muslim faith prohibits him from honoring America and our flag, perhaps he might feel more comfortable playing basketball somewhere else? I hear the Iran and Saudi Arabia are quite lovely this time of year.
As for Mr. Howard, I’m not surprised to hear that many folks around town are giving him a pat on the back and shaking his hand. He did what every patriotic sports fan in the country has wanted to do.
I think we should all take notes from Mr. Howard. He is a true patriot who cares about his country enough to prevent any disrespectful act which makes a mockery of our American values, such as our anthem and our flag. God bless him and God bless our country!
