The Wokesters (try to) Strike Back after Virginia Tech loss in court

Former Virginia Tech women’s soccer player Kiersten Hening and coach Charles “Chugger” Adair

(This is a follow-up to Virginia Tech Soccer player benched for refusing to follow the coach’s woke orders…)

The First Amendment feud between a college soccer player and her school has only grown worse despite the fact that she won a large monetary settlement.

Former Virginia Tech women’s soccer player Kiersten Hening filed a lawsuit against head coach Charles “Chugger” Adair, saying that he verbally attacked her and decreased her playing time after she refused to kneel in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Adair tried to get the lawsuit dismissed, the judge disagreed

She eventually agreed to a monetary settlement of $100,000, which included no wrongdoing on the part of her or the coach. But although a settlement has been reached, the fighting seems to be far from over. In fact, it has only gotten worse.

On Monday, 76 current and former Virginia Tech women’s soccer players signed a statement in defense of Adair, claiming that the allegations against him were baseless and that Hening was lying.

Many of the players graduated before Hening was even on the team.

“We have spent countless hours training, traveling and playing under his leadership and are devastated and appalled to see his character and integrity severely impugned,” the statement reads.

“We firmly believe that these allegations are nothing more than a distorted representation of the facts.”

First of all, many of the players graduated before these events allegedly took place and before Hening was even on the team. How do they know what happened between her and Adair?

Also, this statement does not disprove Hening’s allegations; it just proves that these players have the same political beliefs as the coach. It seems likely that they just want Hening to face punishment for her politics.

Furthermore, if her claims were baseless as the statement claims, why did the university pay the $100,000 settlement? The fact that Virginia Tech agreed to dole out that amount of money suggests that the university believes the case was credible.

Adair, for his part, released a statement on Twitter after the settlement was reached, saying, “Today, we have the clarity that this case lacked any standing, and without evidence, the truth has prevailed.”

But Twitter was quick to put a context label under the tweet, noting that he had agreed to the settlement.

But: in reply to this tweet:

This sure looks like another example of someone in a progressive environment being bullied for not submitting to the woke mob.

We have seen that various sports have increasingly become a platform for woke athletes and celebrities to preach about leftist causes, while conservatives have been chased out and silenced.

It seems that in this case, though, people are being held accountable, and while the settlement did not include an admission of wrongdoing, it was an indication that the left can no longer just bully people into compliance.

Virginia Tech agreed to dole out $100,000. This at the very least suggests that the university believes the case was credible.

Q: How do the signers of that statement know what happened between Henning and Adair?

A: They DON’T!

The reasoning behind the answer above is left as an exercise for the reader.
