When we win, a statue of her will be erected in Blacksburg, VA. A reminder: never kneel to our enemies. [VIRGINIA TECH SOCCER PLAYER BENCHED FOR REFUSING TO KNEEL, AWARDED $100K,, January 8, 2023]:

A former Virginia Tech soccer player who alleges that her coach benched her after she refused to kneel before a game, is going to get a $100,000 settlement.

Kiersten Hening was a midfielder for the Virginia Tech women’s soccer team between 2018 and 2020. She alleges that the team’s head coach Charles “Chugger” Adair took away her starting spot after she refused to kneel for a pre-game “unity statement” ahead of a game against UVA in September 2020.

She said that her political beliefs led to her coach berating her during halftime. Hening allegedly wagged his finger in her face and accused her of “bitching and moaning.” After the game, Hening claims that she was benched and pressured to leave the team.

The ex-Hokies midfielder claims that things got so out of hand that she did ultimately leave the team.

Hening filed a lawsuit in 2021 on the grounds that Adair had violated her First Amendment rights. In the suit, Hening explained her support for social justice. However, she clarified that she “does not support BLM the organization,” pointing to the organization’s “tactics and core tenets of its mission statement, including defunding the police.”

Virginia Tech And Adair Tried To Get The Case Thrown Out

Back in December, there was a motion to reject the lawsuit. Adair pointed to two other players who chose not to kneel but did not lose starting spots. However, the judge rejected that motion citing a noticeable dip in Hening’s playing time after she chose not to kneel.

“Ultimately, Adair may convince a jury that this coaching decision was based solely on Hening’s poor play during the UVA game, but the court, viewing the evidence in the light most favorable to Hening, cannot reach that conclusion as a matter of law,” federal Judge Thomas Cullen ruled.

The settlement comes without any admission of wrongdoing from either party. The three-day trial scheduled for later this month was canceled.

Courage is contagious. In the near future, the soccer stadium at Virginia Tech will be renamed in honor of Kiersten Hening.

    @Colin Wright

    when are us men going to start standing up?

    It’s a valid question. And an important question. In fact, in one way, maybe the most important question, or certainly one of the most.

    However, it’s exactly because it’s so important that one would do well to avoid the often oversimplified, knee-jerk, Either/Or, emotionlized thinking so often involved in a situation like this.

    I don’t think it will come as a surprise to anyone to know that plenty of men have always been standing up. That is what Media Spin is for. Especially in regard to this topic. And if Spin is not applied, then killing a story, or burying it, etc. is next.

    Spin is necessary to dismiss, disgrace and humiliate the bravery of those in question. But mostly, it’s to discourage anyone else from trying. Exactly because courage is contagious. But when Spin can’t be applied, again, it just gets buried.

    I doubt I am the only one who has witnessed with their own eyes acts of bravery, or has stood up to blacks themselves, and not just blacks, but to their hostile elite or useful idiot enablers as well. But there’s no question that when the violence is taken to the extreme that it has been taken to, courage can turn to foolhardiness, and you could be throwing your life away for nothing. And that, of course, is exactly what they want you to do.

    Still, the point of the question is well taken. It’s not so much individual men, but men as a group. And I mean an intelligent and fearless group who are intellectually and physically, emotionally and psychologically, well-prepared. In other words, people incapable of being fooled by and suckered into things like C’ville and January 6th.

    Just as importantly, a bridge has to be built and crossed between men and women who might not even know they’re on the same side. Strange as that might sound, I also have no doubt that any number of people know exactly what I’m talking about, even though I might not be articulating it as well as I could.

    Either way, the point still stands. There is always more we can do about our problems than we think and there are a lot of good people out there willing to do it. That they haven’t figured out a way to do it yet should cause no surprise or shame (so much so that one is right to be suspicious of the shamers). It’s a difficult problem requiring serious problem-solvers and brave actors, not shameless fault-finders.

    That school is 75% minority.

Nevermind the fact that most of them probably have a relative they’ve seen get shot, that school district is about to go bankrupt

    ‘…In other words, people incapable of being fooled by and suckered into things like C’ville and January 6th…’

    I agree with everything but this. January 6th scared hell out them; not because of what we did, but because it made it obvious what we could do. All we need to do is stand up and shake, like a dog shedding water. They’d be helpless. They were helpless on January 6th. Enough rambunctious white Americans, and they have to hide under their desks.

    Moreover, it made them make themselves look ridiculous, with their hearings, and absurdly harsh punishments, and proposals to charge Donald Trump with crimes. That all really showed the emperor has no clothes.

    It’s very hard cheese for the poor bastards put on trial, of course, and we need to not let the reaction intimidate us — but January 6th pointed out just how easy it could all be.

  30. anarchyst says:

    Yes, the case of the “Satilla Three” was a judicial sh!tshow from the start…
    The case of Amhad Arbery and the three (white) Satilla residents who are presently doing “hard time” for defending themselves is a prime example of complete failure of the so-called “justice system”, prosecutorial misconduct and double jeopardy, which MUST be addressed and outlawed.
    Arbery was a career criminal POS who was casing construction sites for tools and other materials that he could steal and sell. He was observed at the same site previously on video as well.
    As there were break-ins and increased criminal activity, the three men were merely defending their neighborhood which was their right.
    Arbery refused to be questioned which was within his right.
    Arbery felt “disrespected” by being questioned and “doubled backed”, attacking the man with the shotgun. Arbery attacked the man by pulling on the barrel of the shotgun causing it to fire. Anyone familiar with firearms knows that pulling on a barrel of a shotgun can cause it to fire. Arbery has that one fatal “flaw” that is present in all black DNA, the misperceived “shame” of being “disrespected” (even if no “disrespect” occurred) and the need to immediately “do something about it” (instant gratification) without thinking of the consequences.
    Arbery could (and should) have run off in any other direction, would not have been pursued, and would still be alive today. He chose to confront the man with the shotgun. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
    The original prosecutor refused to indict. The powers-that-be had to “shop” for a prosecutor who would take the case. It took three tries before they found one who would indict.
    This is prosecutorial “double jeopardy” which must be addressed and outlawed nationwide. The way it stands now, what is stopping a prosecutor from one jurisdiction from indicting someone from another jurisdiction when a local prosecutor having legal jurisdiction refuses to indict? We are all in trouble if this is allowed to stand.
    Also, the court was stacked against the white men just because they are white.
    Arbery’s previous extensive criminal record was not allowed to be disclosed and put into evidence.
    So-called “civil-rights icons”, Antifa and BLM types were in the courtroom, threatening violence if the “correct verdict” was not rendered.
    The jury was also warned that there would be violence if they did not convict.
    The “judge” went along with the threats and refused to run a proper court proceeding. The judge would not allow Arbery’s past extensive criminal record into evidence. There is a video of Arbery giving police officers a hard time with his typical black attitude.
    The mainstream media fanned the flames of racial hatred against whites, making Arbery out to be a mere “jogger”, (yeah, right). Who in their right mind jogs 20 miles from home in work boots? The “mainstream media” stated that Arbery “was studying to be an electrician” and was merely observing (actually casing) construction sites…yeah, right. Arbery was looking for copper wire or anything else of value to steal, that being his stock in trade as an “electrician”.
    I pray that any appeals that the Satilla three place will be successful.
    Their prosecutorial double jeopardy and kangaroo court “trial” were both sh!tshow railroad jobs from the outset.

  31. @Colin Wright

    …January 6th scared hell out them.

    My take is a bit different. I believe much of January 6th was incited by the left to, among other goals, prevent evidence of election “irregularities” that was about to be presented to Congress just at the moment the “insurrection” began.
    Why was this evidence not presented, say, a few days after the insurrection…it certainly warranted attention? Instead it was simply dr0pped, ignored, deleted from further proceedings.
    Why? The “danger” was passed; there was no reason to simply file it away.
    The reason: The same government entities sworn to protect the nation and its people, now seem to be weaponized against us; used to promote leftist goals. Used to suppress anything that would damage their agenda.
    Simply create a diversion and focus on it heavily if the truth is about to be revealed. And use government entities to “legitimize” it all.
    And remember, after January 6th there was virtually no push back by Republicans in Congress. No calls for even the most modest of investigations into election fraud.
    Hardly a day passes when there is no news presented about the evil insurrectionists and their just punishments. It’s a meaty leftist focal point.
    A neat package. A devil’s brew.

    ‘…Simply create a diversion and focus on it heavily if the truth is about to be revealed. And use government entities to “legitimize” it all…’

    Upon reflection, I think that by January 6th the media machine had already discredited suspicions about the election.

    That something was screwy was obvious at the time — and indeed a poll taken right after the election showed half of all Americans at least had doubts about the legitimacy of the election.

    But the Jews and their clients went to work, and worked, and worked, and worked — and I think that by the time of the protests, election skepticism had already been marginalized. It was out there with the moon landings were faked and 9/11 was staged and everything else no one should give the time of the day to.

    The ‘consensus’ in this country is becoming increasingly illusory — largely a fabrication of the media, buttressed by some portion of the people being inclined to take the easy way out and just accept what they’re told or finding in that acceptance proof of their intellectual and moral superiority to all those quasi-fascists who voted for Trump. Still, by January 6th, that ‘consensus’ had already been stretched to cover up and legitimize the election. The topic wasn’t going to get revisited.

    The reaction really tore the velvet glove off the iron fist. A whole lot of people — myself and my family come to mind — who could never have been bothered to go to Washington ourselves got to see what’s really up.

    That’s just it. Given the heavily and selectively censored media, we just have to guess.

    I’ll go with the parents being black. The school’s about two-thirds black, it’s the sort of thing I can’t see myself doing at six (and I was a bad little boy), and it is the sort of thing blacks do.

    So make the odds about one hundred to one. Seriously: not ten to one, but there are crazy non-blacks out there. So one hundred to one.

    Though I’m not in complete agreement there is a part of me that would love for you to be right. Then again, and in fairness to all involved, none of us ever really knows for sure if we’ve done the right thing until we’ve done it.

    I do agree that the cage the hostile elite, et al. has built around itself has been rattled. But more as a result of the fact that they are their own worst enemy, then what anyone else might do to them.

    For that reason, if one can manage it, they should just stay out of their way. But if one finds that response unacceptable, fair enough. Then in that case they had better be well-prepared for the consequences should they decide to take action.

    To say the least. Compare and contrast to the Wichita Horror. Or that grandfather and his four kids murdered on a ranch in Texas just last year. The killer in that last was a Hispanic fugitive — nope, no story. Move along.

    Indeed, this killing was being curiously downplayed until they found the killer. It was almost as if they had to make sure he was white first.
