Well, this is a disgusting way to start a long holiday weekend, isn’t it? We like to honor our best and our brightest from time to time with things like honorary degrees, medals, participation trophies, oh wait that’s just for EVERY kid playing a sport.
This 4th of July holiday it would be nice to relax, reflect, have a beverage or two with friends; just take in what America is meant to be.
While we do that, let’s also try to digest who one of the newest presidential Medal of Freedom recipients is and come to terms with how low we are setting the bar. Participation trophies, anyone?
Check out this gross news from Outkick:
News broke Friday that Megan Rapinoe will be one of 17 recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom this year, along with US gymnast Simone Biles.
The Medal of Freedom is the highest civilian honor awarded in the US, usually given to those who have made “exemplary contributions to the prosperity, values, or security of the United States, world peace, or other significant societal, public or private endeavors.”
Let that just swirl around your palate with your morning coffee or whatever beverage you choose.
It is a slap in the face for Biden to invite Megan Rapinoe to the White House for the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
She hates our country and anthem. If anything, Rapinoe should be given a one way flight to Venezuela!

This loudmouth, American hating woman, that refuses to even acknowledge what a woman actually is, is getting a FREEDOM award. Just disgusting. This vile woman has taken every opportunity, at every turn to cause controversy and push her narrative. She doesn’t even deserve a participation trophy, no less the highest civilian honor.
Rapinoe receives the honor just a few days after declaring that overturning Roe v. Wade was a “violent onslaught on women’s bodies,” while being completely unable to declare what a woman actually is.
She also recently expressed that parents concerned about biological boys or men competing in women’s sporting events should realize that their girl’s sporting career doesn’t actually matter.
This is a woman so intent on pushing the LGBTQ, AEIOY and sometimes Y narrative that she basically said screw your daughters and their sports. They aren’t important. Obviously, I’m paraphrasing, but that is basically what she is saying.
Do any little girls look up to this gas bag? If they do, the message they get is that they aren’t important because they are just girls, not special like trans athletes. Just sick stuff.
Strangely, The White House does not appear to be cognizant of her incessant hypocrisy and lack of intellectual consistency, instead describing her as a “prominent advocate for gender pay equality, racial justice, and LGBTQI+ rights.”
Of course, many in the gay and lesbian community disagree with Rapinoe’s support for transgender athletes competing against women, but that was seemingly ignored.
In reality, Rapinoe is receiving this award because she publicly declares her allegiance to the correct set of progressive principles. That often requires hypocrisy or dismissive, patronizing statements towards people concerned with fairness and biological advantages.
Why would the Biden administration care about biological women and girls? This is a President either so afraid of his far-left constituency, or so old and deluded that he backs the narrative of a tiny fraction of our population as if it were the Civil Rights Movement.
This award is meaningless. Giving it to someone like Rapinoe takes the value and meaning away from an athlete like Simone Biles, and the other winners.
Once again, slow Joe has managed to take something with meaning and honor and turn it into a hollow sham. Thanks Brandon!
Happy 4th of July anyway America. Megan, you can leave if you want.
