United States Olympic Committee Planned to Redesign American Flag for Tokyo Games

The United States Women’s National Soccer team continues to kneel for the National Anthem before each and every match, even when playing on foreign soil. Far too many American athletes these days feel compelled to bring politics into sports, despite nobody asking for it.

Because of the craziness surrounding “diversity” and “political correctness” at home (and abroad), the USOC thought it would be a good idea to redesign the American flag.

Yes, you read that correctly.

From Fox News:

In his monologue on Monday, “Hannity” host Sean Hannity blasted the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) over a new plan to redesign the American flag on its logo, and replace the 50 stars with 5 new stars, and alter the portrayal of the stripes.

On July 6, the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee asked US Olympians and Paralympian associations to fill out an online survey. One of the items in the survey is a proposed change to the Stars & Stripes to be used in USOPC materials, Hannity reported.

The committee told “Hannity” there will be no changes to the U.S. flag icon for the Japanese or Chinese Olympiads in 2021 and 2022 respectively.


From Fox News:

Olympic hammer thrower Gwen Berry says she was “set-up” after the National Anthem began playing during her medal ceremony in the U.S. Olympic track and field trials on Saturday at which time she turned her back to the flag before eventually covering her face with a shirt.

Berry, 31, earned her spot on the Olympic team for a second time with a bronze medal performance over the weekend but much of the attention was on her protest of the National Anthem.

Berry said, “I feel like it was a set-up, and they did it on purpose. I was pissed, to be honest.”
