In 2018, it has become very apparent that a new prejudice has arrived on the societal scene, and it targets Americans with traditional, constitutional beliefs.

The radical left is so furious with the election of Donald Trump that they are now going out of their way to discriminate against any of their fellow Americans who identify as “conservative”.  This seems to be especially true when it comes to the right to bear arms, and those who choose to exercise that un-infringeable and sacred reality.

Unfortunately, this sort of political bigotry has reached even the highest levels of academia, as alleged by one conservative student athlete at a university in the Sunshine State.

A student athlete at a Florida university says his coach threatened to bench him if he posted pictures of his guns online.

Zach Scholl, a junior who wears #40 on Palm Beach Atlantic University’s lacrosse team as a goalie, says an unnamed coach with the school texted him an ultimatum in June. The choice: pick his guns or his team.

“You want to play lacrosse for PBA, you won’t post pics of your guns and stuff. That’s simple. You want to continue to post this—you don’t play,” allegedly said the coach in a text as reported by the local NBC affiliate in West Palm Beach as well as the National Rifle Association.

The last laugh, however, would belong to Scholl.

Scholl, a Maryland native whose social media accounts are clogged with images filled with duck hunting and firearms, to include holstered handguns, texted back to the coach:

“With all due respect, as a citizen of this country I have a second amendment right to keep and bear arms and a first amendment right to post the pictures of my firearms and photos from my hunts on my various social media accounts These are my rights as a US citizen and I’m not going to throw them away just to play ball under you. As much as I love the sport it is not worth it to me to surrender. So thank you for the opportunity, but someone else will have to be wearing #40 this year.”

The coach has been rightfully reprimanded by the university, but there is no word yet as to whether or not Scholl will continue with the team.
