Despite ranking first globally, the U.S. women’s soccer team suffered a 3-0 defeat against Sweden early Wednesday morning after taking a knee in unity with the radical leftist group Black Lives Matter before the game.
This level of ‘woke’ protesting is tiring to patriots who look to sports as an escape from the everyday politics in their lives. Being patriotic is the whole purpose of the Olympics. Every country is competing to prove who’s the best. The U.S. women’s team pulling off this political stunt is embarrassing.
Logan Hall of The Daily Caller said it best when commenting on the game:
“Imagine the impact a patriotic top professional athlete could have right now,” Hall said. “Huge untapped market for that. Naturally, fans start rooting against teams that hate the country they’re supposed to represent. A little patriotism goes a long way.”
If the U.S. Women’s team wishes to be the best, then they need to start playing for the one symbol that they are there to represent rather than a mere idol of anti-patriotism. Unfortunately for us, that team we hope to see doesn’t seem likely to appear anytime soon. Till then, we’ll continue to laugh at how pathetic they look pouting about the one country that millions of others would gladly give up everything to be a part of.
