At one point the left was really running with the theory that the “ok sign” was actually a white power hand gesture. Many on the right, including the “alt-right” found it to be funny and ran with it, flashing the “ok sign” everywhere.
Another reason people flash the sign is because they are playing a game. When you hold the ok sign and someone sees it, you get to punch them. One of the rules of the game is it must be held below the waist, so for that reason the people on the left are going to cling to the claim that this guy was holding up a white power symbol on national television.

In an interesting turn of events, the Cubs banned the fan for life while promoting domestic abuser Addison Russell on the same day. Clay Travis is here to put things in perspective for us.
So the Cubs banned a fan for life for playing the circle/shoulder punch game, but promoted Addison Russell, ON THE SAME DAY, to the Cubs roster even though he beat his wife. Sports, in 2019.

This is the world we live in. We can’t even flash hand gestures or play childish games without being called racists and being banned from a stadium for life. What are they going to take away next? Perhaps the thumbs up will be deemed offensive by the left.
In this hilarious video from CBS Chicago, they blur out the hand gesture because it’s “not appropriate and really offensive.”
Just when you think the left can’t go any further, they do. For example, when it comes to taking down statues and paintings, everyone foolishly assumed that George Washington would be off limits. Well, that theory was proven wrong. A high school claimed that a George Washington mural in the school “traumatizes students.” Seriously? Come on.
As long as this wacko culture is allowed to continue, it will keep getting crazier and crazier. It’s hard to even imagine what they could be offended by next.
Imagine going through life with your number one mission being to figure out what you will be offended by next.
