Pro-Trump High School Wrestler Loses Scholarship After Yelling Anti-Gay Slur At Protest, Says He’s The Victim




https://thegailygrind.com/2018/07/20/pro-trump-high-school-wrestler-loses-scholarship-yelling-anti-gay-slur-protest-says-hes-victim/

Star high school wrestler Bronson Harmon lost his athletic scholarship to attend California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) after he was caught on video holding up pro-President Trump signs and screaming an anti-gay slur at a political rally.

The 18-year-old showed up to counter-protest a June 30 “Keep Families Together” rally in Modesto, Calif. with his father, in response to President Trump’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy that separated thousands of migrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border, the San Luis Obispo Tribune News reported this week.

Activist Abdul Lasaing recorded a heated exchanges between Harmon and anti-Trump protesters attending the event.

“I heard a group of men shouting and trying to scare us by saying #sendthemback and even yelled at someone ‘n****r’,” recounted Lansing.

Lansing added: “I was so choked so I automatically pulled out my phone to record and see who was being so disrespectful.”

“Fu-k you, fa-got,” Harmon yells, while giving the camera the middle finger.

Harmon’s father, Todd, was with him at the protest and can be heard yelling “send their asses back.”

The video posted to Facebook and has been viewed more than 48,000 times as of Friday.

Todd Harmon told reporters that Cal Poly had revoked his son’s athletic scholarship.

The school’s communications specialist, Cynthia Lambert, confirmed that Harmon will no longer be on the school’s wrestling team.

1. love it

this is the way to fight hate - with technology not violence. I wish antifa would employ non-violent tactics such as exposing identities of those freaks with drone footage if necessary and make it go viral, etc.

9. There really isn't much of an Antifa. In most cases, I don't think we know who the hooded assholes

that get violent really are. I've suggested numerous times that protest organizers could do something about that. Organize some two person teams to follow and film anyone that gets out of line. Young people that can run. Follow them all the way to their cars or whatever if they can. You might even catch them being let back across police lines or something really revealing.

40. A very powerful

AND expensive life lesson. Also, in this digital age, one never knows if they are on camera and if they will become famous or infamous overnight.

Too bad, so sad kid. Shame your parents didn't teach you about actions and consequences when you were younger.

8. One is not born with hate in their heart, one learns hate. He should be allowed to join

 

his fellow wrestlers and develop a collage experience that will instill upon him what his father was lacking in empathy and inclusion.

The kid won't learn anything if there weren't any consequences.

17. I would guess yes, but the school probably does not him representing them

in any way. That is if he wanted to try out for varsity wrestling non-scholarship they would most likely say no.

Even Indiana had as much of Bobby Knight as they could stand

Seriously, he behaves like that when he knows he's being recorded. I can just imagine how he acts when he thinks no one is looking.

That probably means he can still attend the school, just that he must foot his own tuition, books, and bed and board

19. He really needs to thank his dad for losing that scholarship.

Dad appears to be the one who taught him to hate.

Hopefully the kid will learn the world does not revolve around him. There are consequences for his words and his actions.

Be nice to see where he is in 10 years - if he was able to shake off his upbringing or if he still sees himself as a victim.

Why would he want to be stuck on a campus with a bunch of eggheads anyway? Now's his chance to really take a stand for what he claims to believe in, and enlist in the infantry.

24. Sunlight is often a great ally in the struggle against evil

And not just vampires. No one can prevent these cretins from harboring their sentiments, but it IS possible to insure that they never again think it is perfectly acceptable to publicly express those sentiments anywhere, and that it is indeed laden with all sorts of irrevocable negative consequences.

And like all great men of character, they immediately blame others for their own actions and mistakes. Maybe he can wrestle at Modesto CC

Scholarships, even at a public university, might be different because they are often paid through donations to a non-profit foundation.

39. Scholarships are a privilege. Being on an athletic team is a privilege.

Any student athlete whose behavior reflects poorly on their team can lose the privilege. This is made very clear when scholarships are offered.

Regardless, I'm glad this douchebag got what he deserved.

His dipshit father sounds like a great guy too. Some people really shouldn't be parents.
