US women’s soccer star won’t sing national anthem again as an “F you to Trump”

Butthurt is not an attractive look…

From Daily Mail: Women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe has revealed she will probably never sing or honor the national anthem again. Rapinoe proudly sang ‘Born in the USA’ into a microphone after scoring a decisive point in a 3-0 win vs. Colombia during a FIFA World Cup qualifying match in 2011.

Over the span of eight years, however, the outspoken athlete, part of the beloved 2015 women’s World Cup-winning team, has gone from patriotic national champion to US cultural critic, becoming as famous for her activism on and off the field as she is for her electrifying play and once-plentiful charismatic displays of love for her country.

The Redding, California native and American poster girl recently became the first openly-gay woman to pose for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and she’s set to help the US women’s team compete for another FIFA World Cup trophy this summer with a qualifying match against Thailand scheduled for June 11.

In a lengthy interview with Yahoo Sports, Rapinoe explains why she most likely won’t be singing or honoring the Star Spangled Banner the way she has in the past, not this summer, or anytime in the foreseeable future.

‘I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart. ‘I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again,’ she definitively stated during an interview published Monday.

‘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.’

She continued: ‘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.’

Rapinoe hasn’t turned her back on her country. She seems to feel it’s many from her country who have turned their backs on folks like her and others from marginalized groups.

In 2016, she took a knee during a pre-game National Anthem performance in solidarity with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who used the gesture as a means of silent protest against racism and police brutality after a string of high-profile fatal shootings of black Americans by law enforcement officers.

‘I know what it means to look at the flag and not have it protect all of your liberties,’ Rapinoe told reporters at the time.

“openly gay” – shocking. SI swimsuit issue – super double shocking. Miss me with that issue
‘I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart. ‘I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again,’ She obviously labors under the illusion that anyone cares. Now she’s going to leave the country, right? Please? Her face is a big FU to the world

The U.S. women’s soccer team represents the United States, not the president.

As for this “Megan Rapinoe,” are we sure it’s female? It looks like an ugly man with boob implants.

Science says that some ugly men have boob implants and then they are women if that’s how they feel. Be careful that you don’t misgender it, that’s against the law

Even the Old Testament prohibits messing with the gender God gave us. I guess that’s why s atanists like to do that so much.

Yeah, I guess I have a “fan club”. I was scratching my head trying to make sense out of why anyone would do that to that particular comment, and other than Bill Nye himself, I couldn’t think of one.

There is some bull-goose looney who occasionally gets all a twitter over my posts. I’d complain if I cared. He/she can knock themselves out.

The beloved 2015 US Women’s soccer team, one of whom stated that their popularity was due to the fact that they were “booters with hooters”. So clever. All over the country men guffawed into their beers, booters with hooters, hawhawhaw. I have stated elsewhere that prior to feminism I thought women were superior to men. Perhaps that was the tipping point at which SOME women demonstrated that they could be just as authentically as*holish as us menfolk

Well, I suppose that depends on whether or not they’re actually women. You couldn’t prove that by me.

Problem is, they want to BE men, so they act like little “guys”, but they have boobies….pretty weird.

Just think how they’re gonna feel when they find out they’ve been salivating over trannies! That’s like sticking dollar bills in a drag queen’s thong!

What does Trump have to do with whether or not [he?] recognizes the National Anthem or not? Trump is not the country in the same way that the Pope is not The Church. Of course they never miss an opportunity to propagandize. This one gets both the “globalism” preference and the queer thing. One has to assume that these organizations that select and promote these examples are in agreement with their stated beliefs. Since I don’t pay any attention to stuff like this it doesn’t do me any good to turn it off and write the sports outfit to tell… Read more »

Nullos, huh? I had a client who was seriously paranoid. The first time I met him he peeked out from behind his door and said, Are you from central intelligence? I said no, actually I’m from central stupid. He thought that was hilarious. Anyway, during a psychotic break he attempted to sever his penis with an x-acto. It was hanging by a thread and they managed to re-attach it. His reason ? The birds on the power lines told him to. His reasoning was at least as solid as that of these..can’t think of a name for them. Nullos. Whatever.… Read more »

I saw a guy do this in the Army and then he tried to climb into a boiler. They dragged him out, put a stretcher on top of the one on the bottom and sent off. I heard they sewed everything back together. Later he escaped from the psych ward and finished the job in Frankfurt. He died.

Working hard to find some part of me that cares what Megan Rapinoe thinks…

Still trying…

Trying some more…

No, can’t find any part of me that cares about her opinion.

I’m sorry, I never could get into soccer, men or women’s soccer, big yawn….. Now, hockey, that’s different, at least it’s interesting.

Yes, boring. Hockey is a game for white men. I used to play when I was a kid, against French Canucks. They don’t feel pain the way we do. Rodney Dangerfield: I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out

There’s a literal National Orgy of people “F-ing Trump” in our country these days. Not a pretty picture, and not a decent Demrat legacy. At any rate—-She/He is going to have to wait in line to experience the anticipated pleasure. Only hope that these Dems so focused on this sort of sexual release enjoy their one-sided pleasuring. Also hope that somewhere their faces and statements are preserved in the footnotes of history amongst the litany of those infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome. You all know that this chapter is being written even as we speak……

Oh yes, Trump-bashing is the new national pastime, at least with the Kool Kidz and the MSM. Absolutely amazing, never ever seen anything like it. But all being documented, not going down the memory hole

I think this is more about making a gay statement. She has also said Trump was a racist and a misogynist. If she was as smart as she think she is, she would know Trump has put more women to work that any previous admin and more in the White House than before. That he is far from a racist and his awards of helping blacks over the decades proves it.
She means nothing to me. Just another blowhard extremist.

Yes, I actually read the article. As if the accompanying picture didn’t say it all. I wonder where these young ladies will be in 30 yrs. Do get back to us.
