It seems a bunch of Army and Navy cadets flashed the “OK” sign—thumb and index finger touching in a circle with the remaining fingers extended—at last weekend’s Army-Navy football game. Now
West Point and Annapolis officials are trying to determine the motives
of those cadets.
Nonsense, and it’s…sad…to see otherwise intelligent Academy officials falling for the Left’s artificial hue and cry and wasting time looking into this. They’re just throwing their cadets under the bus by taking this idiocy seriously.
Only lately has the gesture been given
a different significance for some people around 2017, according to the Anti-Defamation League, when it began to be used to signify white power.
This is nothing but a cynical effort to change the meaning of an innocent, well-meaning, gesture for deliberately divisive meaning. The OK sign has no history of any other meaning, and it has no connection to any other meaning. The distortion is dishonestly created.
No. The gesture means “OK,” and nothing else. That it might also be used in a bar room prankish game is neither here nor there.
It’s important that all of us not surrender any part of the lexicon to the manipulations and bastardizations of the Left.
It’s important to not surrender this gesture to a motley collection of snowflakes, virtue-signalers, and segregationist identity politickers.
Flash the OK sign whenever and wherever you wish to indicate approval.
