US soccer star Megan Rapinoe kneels during national anthem in ‘little nod’ to Kaepernick
I have a few choice words for this piece of work in a women’s body but I want to keep it civil. I was thinking of words like ignoramus – PC pathetic and those are the better ones.
U.S. soccer star Megan Rapinoe knelt during the national anthem Sunday night before the Seattle Reign’s match against the Chicago Red Stars “in a little nod” to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
“It was very intentional,” Rapinoe told American Soccer Now after Seattle’s 2-2 tie in the National Women’s Soccer League game. “It was a little nod to Kaepernick and everything that he’s standing for right now. I think it’s actually pretty disgusting the way he was treated and the way that a lot of the media has covered it and made it about something that it absolutely isn’t. We need to have a more thoughtful, two-sided conversation about racial issues in this country.
“Being a gay American, I know what it means to look at the flag and not have it protect all of your liberties. if she did, she would not be ON HER KNEES.
It was something small that I could do and something that I plan to keep doing in the future and hopefully spark some meaningful conversation around it. It’s important to have white people stand in support of people of color on this. We don’t need to be the leading voice, of course, but standing in support of them is something that’s really powerful.”
Let’s be realistic. Anyone can protest anything they want without disrespecting the flag. The flag represents many things but first and foremost are the 100′ of 1,000’s of men and women that gave their lives defending this country to protect people like her and what’s his name. It is an insult to all that have served to protect imbeciles like them.
I would like to make this DING-BAT an offer. I will drop her off her Lilly white ass on one of Chicago’s inner city’s corners some dark and dreary night. If she makes it 1/2 of a block she will be a lucky person. That will give her an attitude adjustment.
Does anyone understand that in order to correct any problem, we have to recognize there is a problem – get to the root of the problem and make an effective plan on how to correct it. Rapinoe is like millions of other people who live in fantasy land in this country that DO NOT want to acknowledge that at least 85% or more of the problems that exist between the races is initiated by black crime. They hate that white little girl as much as she loves them.
Read my post from 8-27-16:
Air heads like Rapinoe are either trying to get a little ink for themselves – have nothing between their ears or darn right ignorant. I will bet on all 3.
If she is a true believer, she should go into the ghettos, get on her soap box and preach to the masses on how to earn respect not demand it. Possibly that initiative of theirs would solve their problems.
There were many other nationalities in this country that were behind the 8 ball for a lot of years. They had to work very hard to earn the respect they desired, it was not handed to them.
That would be my recommendation.
Protest is OK but burning the flag or disrespecting it is not.
They all have the option to get on the next boat to North Korea. I don’t see anyone except Denis with a ticket in his hand.
