Hitler's Nazi Party did the same thing in Germany but to Jews. The only Jews who survived in Germany were those who refused to turn in their guns and hid out in the mountains. In America, the RICH (Jews) have a saying, "Every Jew a 22...)
EVERY JEW A 22
The AR-15 is a 22 caliber too.
I'm no liberal but that was LAME.
Thanks Vance. That's three minutes I just wasted and will never get back.
One of the most idiotic posts I've ever seen. Where did you copy and paste it from?
@vance Good lord, you wasted THAT much time, just to troll...pathetic

Pretty sure that is fake. News is that Assad has sarin.
1 drop sarin, those folks would not be alive.

No harm done.
Even those offended should pay attention to bigger problems.
I have been handicapped all my life, I never was able to play, football, baseball, soccer, ect. If someone had given me a 'win' or award for what I could not do I would have been fighting mad!! This is from someone who lives the life.I never asked nor expected to receive any freebies and would have rejected them is they had been. For you who think this is so heart warming good for you. But to those of us who have had to fight for everything we have, this is not a feel good thing. Keep you pity to yourself. I do appreciate people who hold the door for me, to me that is heart warming, to those who do not screw you.
@Hayes, this isn't about giving him a win, it's about giving two boys a chance to show what they are made of. It's not as if this boy will now be getting scholarships he did not earn. I for one need these kinds of stories to stay in the news...it's so bad out there right now and hope in humanity (especially from our youth) is what we need.
I think beck is becoming commie socialist! This kind of obamaneque equality, rigging the outcome, will never be reported in breitbart!
What one kid did for the other shows hope, love and kindness. If you got offended grow up. I thought it was pretty cool.
Ridiculous! NUFF SAID.
This is as ridiculous as it gets seriously I'm 6 foot one over 240 pounds I'm never going to be a good Horse jockey yet I found my strengths to be in other areas God made this kid so you can bet he has strengths in one area or another So don't take an obvious weakness for the kid and act as if its some kind of strength and making a mockery of the hard working kids for whom it is a strength its embarrassing sham on everyone including the well intentioned. Reminded me of an episode of Jerry Springer were they brought these kids with a rare disease called phlegaria caused them to age prematurely and as special gift to them for being on the show they went and gavethem Glamour shots to try and give them an image of beuty that was obviously not their strength and it did the opposite and just highlighted there weekness in the beauty department and took the dignity away from what might be a real strength of theres
Some how God always find the right Parents for Children that need special care. Great Story.
Wow. Just... wow.
On one hand, yes, it's heart warming that one boy is willing to do this for another boy.
On the other, (and maybe I'm bad or rude or whatever for calling this particular spade a spade, but...) I'm with Hayes on this one. I'd be pissed if I were a parent on either team, to have every boy hitting that mat that day work his arse off for hours a day to get to be the best in his weight class on that team and then have one kid get on the mat and literally lay down and allow himself to be pinned by someone who can barely move. Forgive the bluntness, but this is a kid getting into a wrestlig match with a throwing dummy and letting the dummy get the pin. How is this not as bad or worse than a participation trophy?
It would have been much more heartwarming if the kid with the Palsy actually got the pin without it having been given to him.
Hats off to Justin Kievit for going above and beyond the call of duty.
I completely understand the young boy wanting to help the less fortunate child hear the cheers of the crowd even if the win was a fake. What I don't understand is the father who orchestrated this all. Why? The child would never have asked for this since he knows he is not physically superior. The sport of wrestling is about being physically superior with some mental advantages. Why would the father interject himself into getting this "theatre" win for his son. He could easily have staged a quiet win at home that likely would have pleased his son just as much. But he wanted the "big theatre". Perhaps for himself. The feel good story doesn't feel so good for me.
I have a particularly close view to this subject, as I am the proud father of a 2 yr old son with Lesch-Nyhan Syndrome (a very rare syndrome that physically resembles CP), and I co-own an MMA gym, with a heavy emphasis on wrestling and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. My youngest son has practically grown up in the gym, he watches his dad and his older brother and all his "big" friends train, and he is practically the mascot to our pro fighters, even to one in the UFC. Although only God knows what Nino may eventually do, it is unlikely that he will ever "really" compete in a grappling event. But I know that his ability to get on the mat and simply participate will give him endless joy.
And I think that is the point of this video. Not a real or fake win, not an outcome at all, but simply a glimpse of the "normal" things that healthy kids get to do, and that kids like this young man and my son wish to do. Many of these disabled kids are fully capable cognitively, so they become very sad and/or frustrated that their bodies will not allow them to do that which they may always observe. So anybody like the teenage wrestler who gives the gift of participation has given a great gift indeed. And if the young man with CP is anything like my son, he probably would have had just as much fun if he would have "fought" only to eventually be pinned.
God bless both of those kids!
Its not about you people. Its about a kid named Jared Stevens. We are all motivated differently. This was good for him. Maybe you would have got nothing out of it.
I dont see why you people are so mad about this. I personnally believe that the only opinions that matter are those of the wrestlers on the teams. My son wrestled for 7 years in school and i would be damn proud of him if he did this for a less fortunate kid. I think the kids on those teams have a higher IQ than the people posting on this story.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions, and this "affirmative action pin" is equivalent to a participation trophy that encouages and rewards mediocrity and disminishes merit. @HAYESSTEPHEN expressed what most of my colleagues with disabilities, who are also rehabilitation counseling grad students, would express: this "pin" was patronizing rather than accommodating. But if no one knows the difference then well-intentioned mistakes were come by honestly, with no malice.

Private planes are $2,000 an hour so you can do the math. Even someone with alot of money has a hard timing paying $10,000 for a trip that is $300 on a commercial airline. And if they can afford it sometimes they don't like 'wasting' capital on nonsense. Just like you or I wouldn't order 3 different pizzas and eat just once slice of each and throw the rest away.
I agree Glen should fly private, he can afford it and his time is likely worth it, but he might not want to waste the money.
