U.S. Women’s Soccer Captain Joins Libs In Trashing National Anthem
Megan Rapinoe used to sing. With grace and gusto, on fields from Frankfurt to Florida to Montreal, eyelids occasionally fluttering. Her chest would rise and fall with the trumpets on the “Star Spangled Banner,” lyrics rolling off her tongue, patriotism oozing from her entire figure.
But nowadays, when the trumpets perk up, and when immense pride swells within the 10 women around her, Rapinoe doesn’t flinch. She stands and stares, lips pursed, cheekbones taut, hands clasped behind her back, face expressionless.
Rapinoe said, “I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again.”boasting that she is “a walking protest when it comes to the Trump administration,” because of “everything I stand for.” She added, “I feel like it’s kind of defiance in and of itself to just be who I am and wear the jersey, and represent it. Because I’m as talented as I am, I get to be here, you don’t get to tell me if I can be here or not. So it’s kind of a good ‘F you’ to any sort of inequality or bad sentiments that the [Trump] administration might have towards people who don’t look exactly like him. Which, God help us if we all looked like him. Scary. Really scary. Ahh, disturbing.”
Washington Examiner added that the 33-year-old co-captain of the national team was the first white athlete and first female athlete to kneel during the anthem in 2016 in a nod to former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who began kneeling during the song to protest racial inequality.
Months after her first protest, the U.S. Soccer Federation began requiring players to stand while the anthem was played before games. Rapinoe has obliged but has stood with her hands at her side or behind her back.
This is a clip from then:
So another pro-athlete joins the liberal joins the despicable act of disrespecting the anthem and U.S. soldiers. Thankfully though, USA Today reported that Rapinoe was left off the roster for this month’s SheBelieves Cup.
