A Muslim Student Has Been Removed From A College Basketball Team In Kansas For Shooting Baskets During The Anthem

It’s pretty simple. If you choose not to follow rules there are consequences. It’s about following the rules.

Muslims sure are experts at whining and winning. What they don’t understand is that sometimes there are certain rules that everybody must follow!

From Breitbart:

A Muslim student has been removed from a college basketball team in Kansas for shooting baskets during the playing of the national anthem. The student claims he has a “religious objection” to the anthem.
The student, 19-year-old Rasool Samir, is now saying that his civil rights were violated when Garden City Community College, in Garden City, Kansas, removed him from the team, the Associated Press reported.

School officials said that Samir was removed from the team because he didn’t follow a team rule that players must leave the court before the anthem plays, not over his religious beliefs.

Samir, who is no longer a student at the college, filed a complaint with the ACLU claiming that the school violated his First Amendment rights.

“We believe any disciplinary action by GCCC against Mr. Samir for abstaining from the anthem is antithetical to our American values and a violation of his First Amendment rights,” the ACLU said in a statement.

Since being removed from the team, Samir insisted he was not being “disrespectful” toward the national anthem.

The student claimed he did not “mean any disrespect at all to the fans or the flag at last night’s game. I am truly sorry to anyone that felt disrespected, and I am also sorry to the school. I apologize for what happened.”

The ACLU sent a letter to the school on November 9 demanding that the school answer for its actions.

The athletes who are protesting the National Anthem are totally DISRESPECTFUL AND UNPATRIOTIC to the country that has given them so much. This is where one veteran stepped in and with his actions said the truth ..loud and clear!

Though I agree with the punishment to this student, you article is missleading with the use of this picture. Garden City Communiyy College is a far cry from the University of Kansas as depicted. This now makes everything you write suspect.
