West Point Investigators Debunk Media Fake News Report About Cadets At The Army-Navy Football Game
At the Army-Navy football game, last week cadets were according to the media, flashing white power symbols during the game. An investigation was immediately launched by West Point and they have completely debunked the media’s false claims.
So just what were the students doing? They were playing the “circle game,” a game that I and a few coworkers still play to this day. The “circle game” is played by holding up the “OK” symbol below your stomach, if someone looks at the circle, you can punch that person that looked at the circle.
Juvenile I know but it’s a lot of fun. Although we don’t really punch each other anymore HR kinda frowns on that.
After the photo of a cadet flashing the “OK” symbol on TV liberals, who wouldn’t know what fun is anyway, demanded an investigation. The media claimed the cadets were flashing the “OK” symbol were engaging in white supremacy.
For some reason, the drive-by media believes that the “OK” symbol used to play the “circle game” is a sign of white power. To be clear I have no clue when this started because I remember playing the “circle game” back when I was in grade school. The “OK” symbol is also used by basketball players to signify a “3-point” shot and the “OK” symbol is also used to show someone you are ok without using words.
Sorry for the sarcasm but this whole thing just hurts my head, this whole controversy is a bunch of BS.
The media ran with a completely false narrative about those cadets based entirely on unhinged tweets from the resistance crowd. Some articles didn’t even mention the possibility of the alternative—and *obvious*—explanation.

the West Point report reads:
“The evidence strongly supports a finding that [the cadets] made “OK” hand gestures during the ESPN broadcast of GameDay because they were playing the ‘circle game’ or ‘gotcha game,’ There is no evidence that [the cadets] hold any racist or white supremacist view or attempted to communicate such messages by using the “OK” hand gesture on national television.”
This is just another fine example of how the media tries to destroy people that may hold conservative values or tear down our great institutions. What the media tried to do to these cadets is no different than the fake news they tried to push about the teenager from Covington Catholic High School who wore a MAGA hat, the lies they have continually created about Brett Kavanaugh, and the massive amount of fake news they have created to try and take down President Trump.
