The whole “kneeling for the National Anthem” fiasco has largely subsided across the world of sports. And yet, even on foreign soil, the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team has no problem kowtowing to the radical left – and, undoubtedly, some corporate sponsors.
This is the problem with the country, today. Far too many know-nothings.
Check this out, via The Daily Wire:
U.S. women’s soccer, ranked No. 1 in the world, lost 3-0 to Sweden early Wednesday morning in their Tokyo Olympic opener after all 22 team members took a knee in solidarity with radical leftist group Black Lives Matter before the game.
Folks in the U.S. who are fed-up with the team’s repeated “woke” protesting, which is often viewed as unpatriotic, let their frustration with the team be known online in the wake of the stunning loss.
Disgraceful & ungrateful. Always all about them—their woke brands are joke brands. https://t.co/NxZo0kGenE

imagine the impact a patriotic top professional athlete could have right now. 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. https://t.co/qDKRqioIIy

I mean, that's the important part, right? As far as corporate sponsors are concerned? https://t.co/CVSTE0iiz2

I'm so happy they lost. I'm actively rooting against US women's soccer. I want them to be humiliated and embarrassed, just as they humiliate and embarrass our country. https://t.co/EnrFOIfVA2

Here’s more from Fox News:
“It’s an opportunity for us to continue to use our voices and use our platforms to talk about the things that affect all of us intimately in different ways,” Megan Rapinoe said after their 3-0 loss to Sweden.
“We have people from Team USA, from all over the country, from all backgrounds, and people literally from all over the world for every other team so I obviously encourage everyone to use that platform to the best of their ability to do the most good that they possibly can in the world, especially as all eyes are on Tokyo these next couple weeks”
You hate to see stuff like this, man. So un-American. So un-patriotic.
