Colin Kaepernick decided to show his displeasure for his country by refusing to stand for the national anthem. Despite living the American dream playing professional football with a multi-million dollar contract, Kaepernick feels that as a biracial man he has been discriminated against. His biological mother is white, and his adopted family is white, but Kaepernick is a victim of white society. Go figure. Poor, poor, Colin.
Undoubtedly, Kaepernick will be remembered for disrespecting his country rather than his football career. Some decisions resonate throughout your lifetime, and I anticipate that Kaepernick will regret his foolhardy and immature act of derision towards America’s finest. His ungracious and arrogant contempt for the country, which offered him the chance of a lifetime, will not be forgotten.
Kaepernick has set the stage for other athletes to pout and exploit their self-pity. One such spoiled brat is Seattle soccer player, midfielder Megan Rapinoe. Rapinoe is a gay athlete who decided to show solidarity with Kaepernick by kneeling at a match in Chicago during the national anthem. She stated that she would be continuing to kneel during the anthem in future matches. Megan obviously thrives on attention and victimhood. But little Miss Megan “I’m an attention seeking brat” Rapinoe had the wind taken out of her sails when the National Women’s Soccer League team, the Washington Spirits, altered their pregame program. And it didn’t play well with the rebellious impudent punk.
In a brilliant move, the Spirits released a statement declaring, “We decided to play the anthem in our stadium ahead of schedule rather than to subject our fans and friends to the disrespect we feel such an act would represent. We understand this may be seen as an extraordinary step, but believe it was the best option to avoid taking focus away from the game on such an important night of our franchise. To willingly allow anyone to hijack this tradition which means so much to millions of Americans and so many of our own fans for any cause would effectively be just as disrespectful as doing it ourselves.” YES, YES, YES, and YES!!!
Not only did the Spirits outmaneuver Little Miss Smarta*s, but they forced her to expose her real agenda. Rapinoe was not interested in supporting Kaepernick. She intended to force her own dismay with the United States on the paying fans who attended the soccer match. She wanted to use the match as a political stunt for her own selfish purposes. To hell with the Americans who paid to see a soccer match. Rapinoe wanted to take advantage of their attendance to shove her anti-American philosophy down their throats.
But it backfired. And Rapinoe’s reaction to the national anthem being played before the soccer teams entered the field was precious. She said that she was saddened by the Spirit’s move and that it was “fuc**ng unbelievable.” She thought it was distasteful to say that she had hijacked this event. A reasonable man would assume that Rapinoe would have been delighted that she had been spared the distress of having to listen to the excruciating message behind the “Star Spangled Banner.” She should have reacted with gratitude that the Spirits were willing to change their pregame schedule to spare her a humiliating experience.
Rapinoe, a devoted advocate for LGBT rights, stated that she thought the incident was a homophobic slur towards her gayness. She complained that the Spirits don’t have a Gay Pride Night which means it is something they are not interested in. Talk about a self-centered young woman. Rapinoe grumbles that Americans are not interested in gay rights when she obviously is not interested in the rights of Americans to enjoy a night out and enjoy the national anthem without having their pleasurable evening interrupted by a spoiled brat.
Megan Rapinoe is a self-seeking ingrate, and she was just outwitted by the Washington Spirits. Kudos to the Spirits. They just outsmarted a liberal smarta*s.
