U.S. Women’s soccer player Megan Rapinoe doesn’t like President Trump. She hates him so much she refused to show respect for our American flag.
Way to take a stand.
Rapinoe is a lesbian and believes that the Trump administration is anti-LGBTQ. There is no evidence to suggest that his administration has targeted LGBTQ people, and he has not called for nationwide discrimination against the group; however, facts don’t matter to social justice warriors.
Megan Rapinoe Disrespects America
She planned her protest before Tuesday’s game. Last month, she told Yahoo! Sports that she considered herself a “walking protest when it comes to the Trump administration” because of everything she stands for.
She continued: “I feel like it’s kind of defiance in and of itself to just be who I am and wear the jersey, and represent it. Because I’m as talented as I am, I get to be here, you don’t get to tell me if I can be here or not.”
Somebody’s a little full of herself.
She clearly has an ego problem. Just because she’s athletically talented, she feels entitled to use her platform to disrespect her country.
It is this exact attitude that Americans rejected in 2016 when they elected Donald Trump president. Hillary Clinton showed the same disdain for patriotic Americans in the so-called “fly-over country” when she referred to Trump supporters as “a basket of deplorables.”
Make no mistake, Rapinoe feels the same way about Trump supporters.
Then she really stuck it to Trump when she said, “so it’s kind of a good F*** you to any sort of inequality or bad sentiments that the Trump administration might have towards people who don’t look exactly like him. Which, God help us if we all looked like him. Scary. Really scary. Ahh, disturbing.”
I thought we weren’t allowed to comment on people’s looks anymore. By liberal logic, that could be considered a “sexist comment.” She directly targeting the president by making fun of his looks.
Apparently, that rule only applies when a conservative man makes a derogatory comment about a liberal woman; I guess it doesn’t work so well in reverse.
I forgot that Liberals are entitled to double standards.
At Tuesday’s World Cup game against Thailand, Rapinoe refused to put her hand over heart and join her teammates in singing the “Star Spangled Banner.”
This isn’t the first time she has disrespected our national anthem. In 2016, she knelt for the national anthem on similar grounds. At the time, she stated that “I know what it means to look at the flag and not have it protect all of your liberties.”
What liberties has she been denied? She doesn’t say. She is playing the “lesbian feminist victim card.”
It is pathetic that liberals like Rapinoe disrespect the flag because of one man: President Trump.
No matter what your feelings are about Trump, he is just one man. The flag represents so much more than the office of the presidency.
It represents Liberty.
It represents all those who died to protect Rapinoe’s right to disrespect it.
It represents a nation of nearly 330 million people.
Rapinoe is letting her blind hatred of Trump get the best of her. She represents the U.S. Women’s soccer team. She wears the American flag on her jersey every time she competes for Team USA.
Maybe she should just boycott the World Cup if she hates the president so much— she would be doing us all a favor.
