Transgender U.S. Olympic BMX Rider Says Her Goal Is To "Burn A US Flag" On The Olympic Pod

• by Tyler Durden

That's one way to decrease your chances of making the Olympic team. At least, it used to be...

Wolfe had previously qualified as an alternate for the U.S. Olympic team at the upcoming Tokyo Olympics, according to Newsweek and Fox

"My goal is to win the Olympics so I can burn a US flag on the podium. This is what they focus on during a pandemic. Hurting trans children," Wolfe wrote in March 2020. She was referring to a PinkNews story about "the Trump administration's stance on transgender girls in female athletics."

She told Fox that the post "doesn't mean she doesn't care about her home country", stating: "Anyone who thinks that I don't care about the United States is sorely mistaken."

She continued: "One of the reasons why I work so hard to represent the United States in international competition is to show the world that this country has morals and values, that it's not all of the bad things that we're known for. I take a stand against fascism because I care about this country and I'm not going to let it fall into the hands of fascists after so many people have fought and sacrificed to prevent fascism from taking hold abroad. As a citizen who wants to be proud of my home country, I'm sure as hell not going to let it take hold here."
