By now, it is likely that you may have heard about yet another “activist athlete” brat who has decided to transform the Olympics into her own personal vendetta against the United States.
Ironically, of course, said athlete is also representing the United States in the same Olympics.
Needless to say, Ms. Gwen Berry’s behavior has drawn fierce backlash from a variety of individuals, many of whom are justifiably calling for her removal from the U.S. team.
For instance, Congressman Dan Crenshaw openly called for her removal, pointing out the difference between the NBA and the OIympics.
“We don’t need any more activist athletes. She should be removed from the team. The entire point of the Olympic team is to represent the United States of America. That’s the entire point … It’s one thing when these NBA players do it, okay fine, then we’ll just stop watching. Now the Olympic team, multiple cases of this, they should be removed.”
Speaking of which, NBA rankings, along with the MLB and others, are tanking into oblivion, and one can only hope they may eventually tank themselves out of networks entirely.
In addition, Matt Walsh of The Daily Wire, wryly remarks that a “self-respecting” country would have already had Ms. Berry removed from the team.
“In a healthy and self-respecting country, she would be kicked off the team and shamed as the spoiled rotten child that she is. Instead she’ll be lionized as a hero.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Unfortunately, under the “leadership” of Biden, the United States is hardly “self-respecting,” particularly after the doozy of a response that the Biden administration issued to Fox News’ Peter Doocy, who posed a very logical question to Circle Back Psaki.
“This weekend, Gwen Barry, who hopes to represent the United States as an Olympian on the hammer throwing events, won a bronze medal at the trials, and then she turned her back on the flag while the anthem played … Does President Biden think that is appropriate behavior for someone who hopes to represent Team USA?” [Source: Fox News]
Of course, Psaki had nothing but nonsense to say … though this time, with a twist.
“Well, Peter, I — I haven’t spoken to the President specifically about this, but I know he’s incredibly proud to be an American and has great respect for the Anthem and all that it represents, especially for our men and women serving in uniform all around the world …
He would also say, of course, that part of that pride in our country means recognizing there are moments where we are — as a country, haven’t lived up to our highest ideals, and it means respecting the right of people, granted to them in the Constitution, to peacefully protest.” [Source: Fox News]
Did you see that?
Psaki openly admitted to not having “spoken to the President specifically,” but then she proceeds to deliver a bunch of word salad purportedly representing Biden’s sentiments anyway.
If that isn’t a clear and present sign (not to mention clear and present danger) that Biden is literally nothing but a total and complete puppet, what is?
After all, it’s a fairly strong statement to claim that Biden has no issue with the flag being snubbed on a world stage, which means Biden is either brazenly anti-American or brazenly indifferent to his name being attached to nonstop anti-American sentiments.
The “activitst athlete” herself, like a typical leftist, is whining about the response to her public fit, claiming that the public backlash is evidence that statements on black lives “were just a hoax.”
“These comments really show that:
1) people in American rally patriotism over basic morality
2) Even after the murder of George Floyd and so many others; the commercials, statements, and phony sentiments regarding black lives were just a hoax.” [Source: Fox News]
Anyone else having trouble drawing a connection between Berry’s statements and reality? How on earth does her public tantrum have any relation to George Floyd?
Also, since when are “patriotism” and “basic morality” apparently so oppositional to one another? Care to explain, Ms. Berry?
Oh wait, Twitter restricts posts to 140 characters for a reason—to avoid truly critical discussion while promoting sound bites of hate.
Speaking of hate, that is precisely what Ted Cruz called out with regards to Ms. Berry’s “athlete activism.”
“Why does the Left hate America? Sure, we have our faults, but no nation in the history of the world has liberated more people from captivity, has lifted more out of poverty, has bled more for freedom, or has blessed more w/ abundance. God bless America.”[Source: The Daily Wire]
Thank you, Ted Cruz, for a major dose of reality, not to mention a refreshing dose of moral patriotism during a time when amoral hatred runs amok … all courtesy of the Harris-Obama-Biden administration.
