Pittsburgh Steelers Linebacker James Harrison Disses on Political Correctness

Posted by Steve Markowitz on August 18, 2015

James HarrisonJason Harrison is a linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers.  This week he attacked one leg of modern Progressive political correctness.  When Harrison learned that his two sons brought home trophies they were “awarded” for merely participating events, he returned them and posted the following explanation on Instagram (emphasis added):

“I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies!  While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy.

I’m sorry I’m not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned and I’m not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best…cause sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better…not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut u up and keep you happy.#harrisonfamilyvalues

Harrison’s common sense approach to raising children offers them the best chance for success in life, not some nonsense award given to make them feel good and merely equal to others.
