Today’s blacklisted American: College football coach fired for putting up hand-written sign saying “All lives matter.”

Opinions that are banned at Illinois State University
Opinions banned by Illinois State University’s football team.

They’re coming for you next: Kurt Beathard, an offensive coordinator coach for the Illinois State University football team, was fired because he replaced an official school poster that had been pinned to his office door that specifically endorsed the Black Lives Matter movement with a hand-written sign that said, “All lives matter to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

[Head coach Brock Spack] asked Beathard to remove the poster, which the offensive coordinator did. “Meanwhile, another coach who wanted to replace Beathard as offensive coordinator had taken a picture of Beathard’s poster and shared it with the football players,” the lawsuit alleges. Apparently, the picture upset some of the football players.”

“On 9/1/20, some of the football players boycotted practice,” the lawsuit said. “Spack came to Beathard’s office and informed him that it looked like Lyons [another coach he had gotten in trouble for making fun of Black Lives Matters] was going to keep his job but that Beathard was in trouble over the poster.”

The next day, he lost his job because Spack did not “like the direction of the offense.”

Beathard, who had worked for 25 years as a football coach, has filed a lawsuit [pdf] against both Spack and Lyons in the federal courts, claiming that they fired him “for one reason and one reason only: He did not toe the party line regarding the Black Lives Matter organization.” The lawsuit also notes that his firing violated the school’s own policy, which states:.

“Illinois State University … is strongly committed to the ethical and legal principal that each member of the University Community enjoys the right to free speech. The right of free expression and the open exchange of ideas stimulates debate, promotes creativity, and is essential to a rich learning environment… As members of the University Community, students… and staff have a responsibility to respect others and show tolerance for opinions that differ from their own.”

Whether Beathard can win his case in court is entirely unknown. The courts no longer automatically support the free speech rights of conservatives.

Let's round up all the unvaccinated and kill them!

The mob and petty tyrants on the left know this, which is why they don’t worry about destroying their opponent’s lives for merely expressing an opinion. For decades the left has been immune from punishment, and so like all bullies now takes full advantage of that immunity. Until we as a society cry “Enough!” and make these jack-booted thugs pay for their actions, they will remain empowered and will continue to escalate their oppressive ways.

Soon it won’t simply be getting their opposition fired. They will work to get them imprisoned, or worse.

And if you don’t believe me, just take a look at the tweets from leftists in this article. The screen capture to the right is typical. You could also take at these essays by me here, here, here, and here. And that’s only a small sampling.

The hate and rage from these bullies is now about ready to do its worst, and that isn’t simply getting people fired. Or as David Horowitz once said, “Inside many liberals is a totalitarian screaming to get out.”

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.


All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.

    An official school poster ….. officially posted on his door …. oooohhh ….
    What made THAT poster OFFICIAL ?
    And not HIS ?
    Hand written perhaps ?
    Left or right handed ?
    Pen, Chalk, or Crayon ?
    Baseball or Swimming coach ?
    Masked or Naked ?
    VAX or DOOMED ?
    oooooohhhh …. this is so exciting.

    Was his poster not official ?

    Loss of reason can be a real pain.

    Alton-speaking of WWII, the name of the teacher who had kids play Holocaust was ‘Jurkowski’ where this coach is ‘Beathard?”

    Lyons is Larry Lyons, who was the ISU Athletic Director at the time. He has since retired on his own volition. Please clarify this in your article. As conservatives, we must be 100 percent accurate, unfair is it is.
