Political correctness is killing patriotism in the United States. Apparently, it is no longer acceptable to chant "USA" after a high school basketball game victory. Chanting USA is now considered a "racial incident." Watch the video here.
When the final whistle blew Saturday, Alamo Heights celebrated a convincing victory over San Antonio Edison.
Alamo Heights Head Coach Andrew Brewer said he was proud of his team.
"Tremendously proud,” Brewer said. “Tremendously. It's the best group of kids."
But it was just after the trophy presentation when the coach was not proud of the chant coming from Alamo Heights fans.
"USA, USA, USA," they chanted.
San Antonio Independent School District officials took the chant as a racial insult to a school with all minority players from a school with mostly white ones.
Welcome to the American education system, a place where liberal bureaucrats cut out pride for America by trampling free speech while prohibiting students from chanting USA in thanks for the opportunity to play basketball freely in exchange for race classification and division instead of unity.
SAISD Spokeswoman Leslie Price heard about the incident after it had happened.
"This is very disrespectful to our students,” Price said.
She said the district is glad the coach put a stop to the chant immediately and hopes Alamo Heights addresses it quickly.
"It is surprising and it's disappointing to hear that anyone would be out there making those kind of remarks," Price said.
