Coach Formally Accused of Bullying for Decisively Winning Football Game
The concept of bullying, like all things liberal, will extend ever further into absurdity for as long as moonbats dominate our society. Already it encompasses winning decisively:
Texas high school coach Tim Buchanan benched his starters after only 21 plays, kept to a conservative ground game and even allowed the clock to run uninterrupted after halftime to hasten the final whistle. Still, his Bearcats won 91-0.
Now the coach is facing formal accusations of bullying.
The impressive victory for undefeated Aledo High School, a football powerhouse in suburban Fort Worth that has put up similar numbers against other schools, has forced an investigation after a parent from the opposing team filed a bullying complaint. The complaint, which must be investigated under state law, says Buchanan should have done more to prevent the lopsided score.
“It wasn’t good for anybody,” Buchanan said of the Friday win over Western Hills in a Class 4A matchup. “I’ve sat and gone over and over and over it on what we could have done differently. The score could have very easily been 150 to nothing.”
Just because it could have been worse is no excuse for winning by 91 points; not when we live under a prevailing ideology that demonizes winners and sanctifies losers.
Buchanan said his school, winner of four state titles since 1998, and district are very supportive of the football program. The same, he said, cannot be said of Western Hills.
“It’s not so much money as it is lack of emphasis,” he said. “If you’re going to have a program, support it.”
As always, there are reasons why the winners win. The objective in a liberal society is to override those reasons, so as to benefit the people who, due to their own behavior and priorities, deserve to lose. This is current American economic policy in a nutshell.
