The fact that these girls were so offended that they couldn't even finish a game that they were losing, seems a bit suspect. Maybe they were emotionally distraught, but I've never seen three fans scare an entire team off of a field.
‘They came off the field and weren't able to finish the game because they were too upset and distraught over what happened to them,' Denu said.
‘One of the girls was cradled in the arms of one of our assistant coaches for a good 15 to 20 minutes.
‘Those are just words you'll never be able to take back from those kids and an experience that you wish you could take back. It was really disturbing for them.'
The coach said he could see ‘hurt and pain' etched on the girls' faces as they tried to carry on playing, but some were too overcome with emotion to continue.
He said the Trump chants came from a ‘small pocket' of the Elkhorn fans, but that it was enough to do lasting damage to his students.
Speaking about the away supporters, Denu said: ‘I'd like them to just kind of take in what they said, think about their words before they say them.
The political correctness police are, of course, having a field day with this. And as it happens, something like this occurred in professional sports this week, as well. Andrew Shaw, a right wing on the Chicago Blackhawks was suspended, fined and sentenced to mandatory sensitivity training because of an alleged slur made while in the penalty box last night. As for the Elkhorn incident, it's currently under investigation. Apparently students aren't allowed to exercise their first amendment rights anymore. Meanwhile, the offended wins again.
