When the Captain of the US National Team claims she’ll never sing the national anthem again, the only logical question is “Then why the hell are we rooting for you?”
As of this writing, the US Women’s National Soccer team are tied with the host nation France as the favorites to win the 2019 Women’s World Cup. The problem is, this team doesn’t believe that America is a country worth rooting for. To some, it may be lazy to simply say that the left hates America, but one thing can be denied. When the left isn’t lecturing us about how racist, sexist, and *Insert growing number of phobics here* the United States is, was, and will continue to be; they are very quick to denounce the entire United States of America whatever a Democrat isn’t running the country.
Case in point, Megan Rapinoe, the openly lesbian co-captain for the United States Women’s national soccer team, said that she will no longer participate in patriotic displays as a protest of the Trump administration. That’s right, the Captain of the US National Team is rejecting patriotism and America because of Trump.
“I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart. I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again,” Rapinoe said adding she views herself as “a walking protest when it comes to the Trump administration,” because of “everything I stand for.
“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,” Rapinoe said. “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.”
As much as Rapinoe would like you to believe that Trump is the cause of her Anti-American protests, in reality, they started back in 2016 when she joined Colin Kaepernick in protesting the national anthem until the U.S. Soccer Federation required it’s players to stand for the anthem, a move that Rapinoe called ‘cowardly’. “I know what it means to look at the flag and not have it protect all of your liberties,” she said.
Well, when the Captain of the team doesn’t have favorable views of the country that she represents, it should not be a shock that other players on the team mimic the same sentiment. Alex Morgan, a forward for the USWNT, told TIME Magazine that she likely would turn down an invite to the White House if they do win the World Cup because she doesn’t stand for a lot of things the current office stands for (the team accepted the white house invite when Obama was in office in 2015). Currently, the odds of the entire US team turning down a White House are higher than them actually winning the tournament.
The women’s team have been plagued with headlines taking away from any relevance they have had on the field such as the story of Jaelene Hinkle who was dropped from the US national team last year after declining to wear a jersey to honor lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) pride month. Hinkle was not called up to the National team despite lacking depth in her position.
The women also made headlines suing their own United States governing body just three months before the Cup, alleging years of “institutionalized gender discrimination” because they aren’t paid as much as their male counterparts. The team even targeted FIFA for inequality despite doubling their prize money from the 2015 tournament from 15 million to 30 million. Players looked at the 400 million pot that the men got in last year’s World Cup as the justification of their discrimination.
Now of course, the 2014 Men’s World Cup generated $4.8B and distributed $576M in prizes vs. the 2015 Women’s World Cup generated $249M and distributed $15M in prizes meaning that the men not only drew more money but by ratio, the women actually DID get a bigger portion of the pie vs their male counterparts…probably why the odds of them winning this lawsuit aren’t very good.
The US Women’s team has made it very clear, they are NOT representing America in the 2019 World Cup. They aren’t even representing the governance body of the country they play for. No, this year’s world cup is all about gender quality, LGBT rights, feminism, and inspiring girls to fight back…and money (don’t forget the money). But if you as a fan are looking to root for your national team because that’s the kind of Patriot you are, you will be disappointed to realize that this team doesn’t share your sentiment, and they probably shouldn’t share your time.

A house divided against itself cannot stand. A national team that demeans its nation cannot win!
Can’t stand for the playing of our National anthem What a Scumbag loser I can only hope you’ll lose and I can only hope your plane crashes
You are so right.
As an immigrant to the USA, I am appalled by the anti-America sentiments by the USA soccer team. I will be cheering for their loss. They do not represent the USA. They don’t have a clue how great this country is. Millions of immigrations who come here for greater freedom and economic opportunities can attest to this. Shame on them and I truly hope they lose. They don’t deserve our support
Me too and I hope there plane crashes
The entire team has been poisoned by the Captain of the team. I reject any support of this team. Try playing for Iran. However, you may not live to play another game. Jerk.
Funny, but the inability to be critical of your government is exactly what separates the U.S. from countries like Iran. The author and those commenting forget this important fact.
Wanting to make your country better, and to fully live up to its ideals doesn’t make you unpatriotic. Loving America means being willing to be critical of things that should be changed, and being grateful you live in a country where you can be critical.
No, no , no, that’s bs Leftist talk, it’s not that she is playing and fighting for change, something we all could support, but she openly says f/u America and uses her platform to spit on American culture and values.
When you wear the uniform of the Country you represent, represent that Country with pride, or step down and let someone who is proud of their Country wear it.
She is disgusting and so are her teammates that support her.
I personally hope they lose, sorry to see them beat France
So…here the problem with that…someone who wants her country “better”. Would never ever say…”I’ll NEVER” sing the anthem again etc… If you want to protest something…fine. but A. Leaders never do things like this…they rise above and show what they like to see in others (not whine). B. To say you’ll NEVER be patriotic again…implies that even with the desired change you’re feeling the same way??? Kinda proof that she’s just an angry person who sees herself as a victim even if she got her way.
Democrats only tend to LOVE America when they control the White House
Well I’m surprised. It looks to me like Megan Rapinoe and some of her teammates are doing better than okay in a country they disdain. They have the right to say what they want but that doesn’t mean they should. She is full of hatred and anger if you ask me. Just another example of what far left really is.
I remember the US Hockey team winning over Russia and the whole nation rallied behind them, it ashame todays youth have this to look up to, Lesbians and Liberals
She is an embarrassment to our country….. I hope they lose – mostly because she is the last person I’d want my daughter to look up to. Go away, Rapinoe- you are one piece of dog poo.
Article says it all. But then again, don’t confuse the Liberal Left with the facts. The Little blue haired embarrassment stole all the attention away from her teammates. Disgrace who shouldn’t be wearing that jersey.Hope they get wiped out!
I don’t like soccer to begin with, unless my Grand Daughter is playing. I will not root for team USA due to their Anti-American beliefs, their idiotic political stands, and their immoral personal lives. THE LEFT is this nation all ought to move to FRANCE, Venezuela, CHINA, Indonesia, the Middle East to see what it is like living under Socialism, communism, or Islam. Then never come back so you can bitch again. The USA has never been perfect, (Only Jesus Christ is) BUT This nation was built by our founding fathers who valued freedom and liberty more than themselves. Today’s leftists only care about the power, control, that they want over others. The Freedom revolution is coming, so look out leftists, globalists, democommunists, antifa. Your enslavement is to satan. Those that Serve our Heavenly Father are free already. THINK ABOUT IT. GOD WILL NOT BE MOCKED.
In the eyes of God there should be no union of a man with a man or a woman with a woman. Women should not lay with women and men should not lay with men. These women players are trying to be men and they are not. It is unnatural. God bless America.
There are horrible they shouldn’t have the honor to play and get the benefits of playing they hate this country do us all a favor and leave She should be a team leader
She shouldn’t be a team leader
You dare criticize people who don’t agree with your perverted gays ways. You sick disturbed people. You don’t represent America. You all should be thrown off the USA Woman’s Soccer Team along with the coach.
Their union signed the contract that they agreed on as far as their pay. How about just respecting the country that your playing for and the office of the president itself. get over yourself. How embarrassing to the rest of the world. If your so unhappy, why dont you play for another country and show YOUR bad manners for them. God bless america, your home sweet home. Shame on you.
Right wing hate talk. Trump sides with Putin and that’s not unamerican. Stop talking out of both sides of your ass. You know damn well if Obama cuddled up to Putin and Kim, you guys would have had a fit. Nobody on the team said they hate America. Jesus would be on the side of total inclusion. Remember Him – The Peace and Love thy Neighbor guy.
It amuses me when people who fundamentally reject Christianity lecture others on how to be “good christians”…while rejecting those same teachings.
There is no Russian collusion you idiot. But keeping being up Obama’s ass.
