We All Wanted to Love the
Women's Soccer Team

For the first time in my life, I did not root for an American team. Whatever the sport, I have always rooted American. But if those who called into my radio show were representative of my audience, many millions of Americans made the same sad choice. It takes a lot for people like me not to root for an American team. But Megan Rapinoe, the foul-mouthed star of the team, and her fellow players made it possible. The U.S. women's team disgraced itself. Either its members were cowed into submission by Rapinoe or they agreed (or, at least, never disagreed) with her attacks on the president,


They had to be worthy of our love. They weren't.

Rapinoe should have been dismissed from the team within hours after her foul mouthed and disrespectful rant. The fact that she was not tells you all you need to know about the leadership of the US Women's Soccer organization. Completely unworthy of our support.

A-mer-i-phobe (noun) A person who hates the freedoms Americans enjoy and the rule of law, and will only be satisfied when America is reduced to a socialist state where the government controls everything. "The soccer squad of Ameriphobes attacked the duly elected president of the United States."

Rapinoe is a "great player"? I dunno. Her team got whipped by a bunch of 13-yr.-old boys from Dallas. I'm with Steve Sailer. The only reason U.S. women dominate in soccer is simple -- in other countries, where people actually LIKE soccer and take it seriously, they don't pay attention to their women's program.

The stink of Rapinoe could have been offset by the other 20+ members of the team. Their silence was deafening. Especially Alex Morgan the Co-captain. She could have counter balanced the ugly face of Rapinoe . Alas she too kept quiet and let us assume that she too hated America.

The Woman’s Soccer finals game was played by two very unbalanced national teams as far as talent was concerned, and most likely the same occurred in every other game before the final game giving the USA a huge advantage in team talent throughout the series of games. In the final the USA played against the Netherlands. The USA has a population of over 325 million people with over half being women from among who the US team recruited. The Netherlands has a population of over just 17 million people, with over half being women from which the Netherlands team recruited. With such differing populations in numbers, there is bound to be a lot more highly talented soccer players to recruit in the USA, by a country mile, over the much smaller pool of of talent that the Netherlands could recruit from. There is no way that any professional sports league could survive with their teams limited to having to recruit their talent from such disparate talent pools.

Seals are better behaved than these non-ladies. And I am tired of hearing about them in every TV news broadcast. So a team of women beat other teams of women. What's the big deal? Just as some sports have weight categories, perhaps some should have testosterone level tests.

These women have made a stain on women's soccer that will be nearly impossible to erase. They have also made a stain on the rest of their lives. They will not be able to say, with pride, that they were a part of this team. They will not want to allow their children and grandchildren (assuming they want to marry a man and have children) to learn about their conduct and disrespect for their country. I suspect that their soccer experience will not be talked about much among friends and family, in coming years. The people they believe are their friends now will fade away...

This is a civil war between patriotic Americans and anti-America haters and all it stands for. Rapinoe along with Kaepernick are on the other side of my picket line. I dislike them and the sports they corrupt just like they hate me, the flag and America. I don't take a purple haired, foul mouth, woman who looks like a middle age man serious or the politics she espouses. Sorry women's soccer you all blew it and what you have achieved was not what you played for.

Re #12, if that theory was true, the U. S. men would have performed better as well. Doesn’t hold up. The Netherlands lost the championship by 2 points, one of which was - as I recall - a penalty kick. And the foul was not seen by the referee, but caught on video. The Netherlands's strong defense kept the U. S. team from scoring for the first half... We saw imbalance between the U. S. and some other teams. The Netherlands, not so much. I don’t believe it is about the population.

I don't care if this team plays the greatest game in the history of the universe at high noon on world wide TV...I could care less. These women—regardless of how they feel personally about anything—represented America and the least they owed this great nation is respect for our flag and the people who trustingly supported them. Please note: past tense: supported. Color me gone forever in support of this team.

I'm tired of hearing conservative friends apologize for President Trump's "go back to where you came from" tweets about the likes of Ilhan Omar. The president has the moral high ground, and the weasel war dance of the mainstream media shouldn't distract us from this fact. Even his worst enemies (e.g. ex-conservative David Frum) concede that Trump's attacks on the anti-American extremists in the Democratic Party are smart politics. As Tucker Carlson observed in his June 16 keynote at the National Conservatism conference in Washington, a new Axios poll gives the Jew-baiting Somali an approval rating of 9%: "Rep.

House Democrats are rallying around the four far-left congresswomen who have collectively become known as the “squad.” The House Democrat majority has put aside legislative business to debate a resolution condemning President Trump for his allegedly “racist” tweets denouncing Reps. Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), nicknamed AOC, and Ilhan Omar (Minn.). Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who just last week was on the receiving end of the race card played so often by the squad, is now referring to these hate-mongers as “our sisters.” As President Trump tweeted Tuesday morning, “now they are forever wedded to the Democrat Party.”

We all know the scene. James Bond is losing a hopeless fight against a man-mountain in the baggage compartment of a train. Things look grim for Her Majesty's Secret Agent until he coils a rope linked to a heavy object around his opponent's neck and kicks it off the train. The villain is yanked into the night and James Bond wins again. Trump's strategy is to fight the Washington establishment with this outlandish plot device. By engaging in a bare-knuckle public row with four Democratic left-wing congresswomen, he's creating a rope he plans to loop round the more careful centrists who, with any luck, will be dragged into the darkness

With his usual flair for hyperbole and indifference to factual details, Donald Trump last week tweet-blasted the so-called “Squad” of female freshman Congressmen “of color” for slandering America as racist, sexist, xenophobic, Islamophobic, and numerous other empty epithets. Though Trump was careless for suggesting, “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came”––since only one, Ilhan Omar, was born abroad––his sentiment is still valid, and has been shared for decades by millions of Americans angry over their homeland being demonized by immigrants and fellow citizens alike.

We’ve commented before on the shoddy and hyper-partisan writing of Margaret Sullivan, a media critic for the Washington Post. Among other shortcomings, Sullivan seems incapable of making anything resembling an argument. Today, Sullivan defends the practice in news stories of labeling President Trump’s utterances “racist.” She calls this a “service to the truth” (quotation from headline in paper edition). But one searches Sullivan’s column in vain for an argument in support of her claim that Trump’s comment about the four congressional rads (or anything else Trump has ever said) is racist. Arguments aren’t Sullivan’s thing. Name-calling is.
