SJWs Cannot Make This Frivolous Argument

Because some SJWs found a couple of white supremacists use the same hand symbol to mean something literally nobody else says it means, now every eighteen-year-old needs to learn not to play the circle game, is a ridiculous and frivolous argument.

Cadets at the annual Army-Navy football game were “caught” making the finger-circle gesture, that some tiny fringe fragment of white supremacists may at one time have used as a “white power” sign. Ooooooh, let’s investigate, says the spineless Pentagon.

“We’re looking into it,” Lt. Col. Chris Ophardt, a spokesperson for the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in New York, told the Journal. “I don’t know what their intention is.”

“We are aware and will be looking into it,” said Cmdr. Alana Garas, a spokesperson for the U.S. Naval Academy, in Annapolis, Maryland. The Pentagon didn’t immediately respond to the Journal’s request for comment.

This doesn’t need looking into. It’s already known, because the “circle game” has been around since Jonah Goldberg was in high school (and him having just crossed the dreaded Brimley/Cocoon line, that was a long time ago).

But those who hate President Trump will try to find the most tenuous, trifling link to racism and turn it into a conspiracy, or attribute it to Trump’s influence.

Absolute poppycock.

The symbol those cadets were making is nothing more than the circle game, where kids get others to look at the hand gesture, and if the other kid looks, he gets a punch in the arm.

Because some SJWs found a couple of white supremacists use the same hand symbol to mean something literally nobody else says it means, now every eighteen-year-old needs to learn not to play the circle game, is a ridiculous and frivolous argument.

To the Trump haters: Find something else to complain about, because you look totally foolish if you argue this one.
