The rules of the circle game isn't to put it right next to a dudes head. It's all about context. The symbol had clearly taken on a new meaning these days. If you want to play the game w a dude and punch them for looking that's fine. If you flash it behind a black dudes head on TV, that's a little different. I'm amazed I need to explain this to you guys.

I'm not surprised by his comment to be honest. If it were a bright, sunny, not a cloud in the sky, day, and we said the sky was blue, he'd argue it wasn't.

And to follow;

1) I think this is completely fucking stupid to be quite honest and completely blown out of proportion by the media trying to find something to offend someone over and continue to feed the division in this country.

2) How the hell can the cubs truly ban someone? I mean seriously. Go ahead, ban me. I'll have someone else buy the ticket for me and show up. WTF... Do you have facial recognition software as people enter Wrigley? Scan every seat in the audience looking for offenders?

You should have pointed out it wasn't below the waist so it doesn't count too.

Well my wife thinks that it's quite sane this guy got banned (and actually something like 4 police officers got a month suspension w/o pay for the same thing) and she's a Cubs fan so I'm not sure if I disagree.

They're just putting on a show for the cameras. It's virtually impossible to ban him. Buy the tickets on stub hub, have a friend order them, etc. Unless they start checking ID at the gate, he's fine.

plus he's still unidentified, the impossible useless ban just appeases the left with warm and fuzzy feels. I'm sure he will be identified through social media if not already. I would like to hear his side of the story, obviously we know left concluded he is a white supremacist Trump supporting KKK member.

I didn’t know it was a racist gesture but a simple google search and all the usual white supremacy suspects are flashing the sign. According to Hoyer on a radio interview, the individual was identified and has similar activity on his social media. Kinda weird that he hasn’t come out and tried to clear his name. Wouldn’t you want to clear your name? IMHO he is a racist and did it for racist reasons. If you refuse to believe the symbol means racism, then you are just ignorant.

Yea, I'm tired of walking on eggshells around all those living in Victimhood because I'll hurt their precious feelings. Then have my name dragged through the mud, lose my job, and ruin my family's life...

Why would a dude who is getting clowned on national tv come out to "defend himself" and 1. Give out his name and 2. set himself up for more ridicule from people who have ZERO idea if he was just fucking around or otherwise.

If it was a simple joke or goof and the dude goes on the news....hes only further allowing the media and social sites to drag him through the mud further. Fuck that.

Playing devils advocate of course.

He probably doesn't want people like you mobbing him and harassing him at work or a brick through his window at home. Apologizing to the mob is the quickest way to get them to lob your head off. Lets see what the ADL says on this:

https://www.adl.org/blog/how-the-ok-...olling-gesture

Quote:
It is important to realize that the “OK” gesture is a nearly universal hand gesture and most usage of it is completely innocuous. Even when used as described here, the fact that white supremacists, the alt lite and many Trump supporters all use the symbol means that one cannot assume that anyone who poses with such a gesture is intending or exhibiting an association with white supremacy. Only if the gesture occurs in context with other clear indicators of white supremacy can one draw that conclusion.
