This anti-American says she was set up. You know what I have to say about that
Copping a plea:
Olympic hammer thrower Gwen Berry turns her back on US flag during national anthem and says, “It was ‘disrespectful’ and ‘a setup’ to play the song while she took bronze at trials.”
‘I feel like it was a set-up, and they did it on purpose,’ said Berry, who finished third to make her second U.S. Olympic team. ‘I was pissed, to be honest.’
It should a standard/mandatory practice for ALL people that represent the USA in any games; be compelled to sign an agreement that they will not disrespect the USA or it’s flag in any manner or be disqualified from receiving a medals.
Berry’s take on it: They had enough opportunities to play the national anthem before we got up there,’ she said. ‘I was thinking about what I should do. Eventually I stayed there and I swayed, I put my shirt over my head. It was real disrespectful.’
Unless I am missing something this fool is trying to sell; when was the anthem ever played before the recipients were on the stand??
Berry is just another in the long line of ungratefuls that forgets what side her bread is buttered on. If it were not for THE FLAG and what it represents; she and all of her comrades would be eating with chop sticks like in North Korea. I would love to see them try to pull the same shot on The Kid-Dick-tator.
It is long overdue that the officials of the games quit kissing these peoples asses and disqualify them for their unacceptable behavior.
