In the run through the World Cup, I was originally celebrating the USA women's team and their success as an example of American excellence as a time when I felt the country needed this kind of symbolic victory. However, the star of the team, Megan Rapinoe, has so tarnished the reputation of the team that many Americans will never watch the women's team again, no matter how many World Cup championships they win.
Please note in the cover photo that Rapinoe, pictured on the left, is the only one not covering her heart as the National Anthem is being played in a profound display of disrespect.
Megan Rapinoe has lost her sanity, or perhaps she was never sane. Her obnoxious ways have diminished the great accomplishment of the team. Rapinoe is the team bully and presumes to speak for the entire team. She doesn't, she only intimidates most of the team into silence as she spews her hate-filled rhetoric. Rapinoe has alienated most of America who would have loved to have supported the team's glory, but now, will not. Rapinoe's statement that the team would not have won if it were not for the gay players, is ludicrous. Since when does sexual preference correlate to athletic ability? It obviously does not and only one with an extreme agenda would try to advance that viewpoint.
Rapinoe has not only cost herself millions of dollars in endorsements, but she cost her teammates the same as well as attracting more sponsors for future women's soccer teams.
The fact that Rapinoe, only a player, has determined that the team will not meet with Trump but would meet with Schumer, is very telling. Schumer is now being linked to Epstein's antics. Is this a case of birds of a feather, flock together?
The illogic and hate-filled agenda of Megan Rapinoe is omnipresent. Psychologically, she is clearly angry at the world. Was she the victim of abusive treatment in her past? One has to ask, because the anger is far out of proportion than what it should be given the circumstances.
I would like to know where is the coach and where is the administration behind the women's soccer team? There is no way that ALL of the women support Rapinoe's radical agenda. And even if they did, this was not the place for the extreme expression of disrespect for the USA. Yet, Rapinoe is allowed to use the team as her own sounding board for her very bizarre political views. She attacks Trump in ways that are illogical. Trump has appointed gays to his administration. He has spoken out against discrimination against gays. Under Trump, women have had the greatest increase in salary and employment in our nation's history. Talk about biting the hand that is feeding you. The hatred of Trump, for many liberals, has become the justification for hating Trump. There is not one valid reason for someone who is gay, or female, to hate Trump. That is absolutely true unless one has an ulterior motive, such as becoming the next Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I suspect that Rapinoe has radical political motives and aspirations. She needs something new to move to because her playing days are probably over as she is past her athletic prime.
I watched in horror, in the celebration of the soccer team at the World Cup championship victory, as Rapinoe lifted her leg as she was going to stomp on the flag and one of her teammates quickly picked up the flag off of the ground and avoided the display of disrespect that Rapinoe intended for the American flag.
Rapinoe has stated that she will never again, ever, sing the National Anthem. I would like ask her if she feels any sense of responsibility to demonstrate respect for the brave men and women that risk their lives to preserve the laws that allows an angry despot, like Rapinoe, to spout her un-American views? Does she care that people have died that provide her with the opportunity to spread her illogic and hate?
