A former Virginia Tech woman’s soccer player is suing her former coach because she was allegedly benched and forced off the team because she didn’t want to kneel.
Kiersten Hening was a midfielder/defender for the Hokies from 2018 to 2020. She claims in her lawsuit that the coach, Charles Adair, was not a fan of her political views and she was removed from the team by him because of this.
From The New York Post:
In the lawsuit, Hening said she “supports social justice and believes that black lives matter” but she said she “does not support BLM the organization.” Hening added that she disagrees with Black Lives Matter’s “tactics and core tenets of its mission statement, including defunding the police.”
Hening said during the pregame reading of a “unity statement” on Sept. 12, 2020, many of her teammates knelt before their game against Virginia, but she remained standing and she was “verbally attacked” by Adair at halftime.
Adair allegedly pointed a finger “directly in her face” and said that she was “b–tching and moaning.” Hening added that Adair said she was being selfish and individualistic for “doing her own thing.”
Adair continued to target Hening with verbal rants before benching her, the lawsuit stated. According to Hening, things got so “intolerable that she felt compelled” to leave the team.
Hening is alleging in her lawsuit that her 1st amendment rights were violated by the coach and is seeking an undisclosed amount of money. She is also demanding that the judge order coach Adair to put her back on the team.
Dear Ms. Hening… YOUR life matters and so do your opinions, as well as your right to express them. To hell with this coach and all these citizens of Wokistan! Wishing you success in your lawsuit, to benefit us ALL.
Go Girl…! Take ’em to the cleaners, You have Millions of American Patriots who support you.
You must know when 2 BLACKS and an Illegal Mexican murdered my Father … his life DID NOT MATTER. Hypocrites.
Thank God I’m retired and not in college or still working and in a position where morons can subject me to this kind of b. s.
So saying you “believe” in blm isn’t good enough. What a bunch of American lunacy that you even need to stoop that low.
When blacks start saying white lives matter
Then I’ll start saying black lives matter as well.
It’s disgusting how many weak people in this country turn into traitors
All teachers and all staff at any educational institution need to keep their political views to themselves. their job is to teach students to think for themselves.
Not only should she be allowed back on the team, but the coach should be fired and permanently barred from coaching at any school.
Also, maybe she should choose another college as it was like the administration supported the coach. Perhaps Virginia Tech should fund a full Boat scholarship to a college of her choice including graduate school.
May You Prevail,…. in this Injustice by the Criminal masses of the Liberal affilliation, Many of us Stand and REFUSE TO KNEEL TO THESE DISRESPECTFUL PIECES OF TRASH WHO SHOULD BE DEPORTED , Lee-Bron, And Whatever that other FLAKE, is who first lost his job for being a poor player and a Protester, fork them BOTH in the Left ear….
Stay strong girl, you are right and we are with you by the millions!!
SUE the heck out of them,they’re political abusers and need to be removed from their positions.
I hope she wins the law suit against the racist dim with coach. He should lose his job over his racist views against a player. He is un American to stand with an organization run by Marxist millionaires that cause Blacks to destroy and vandalize property.
