Hammer thrower Gwen Berry has defended turning her back on the US flag during the national anthem at the US Olympic trials, writing on Instagram 'I meant what I said. Period,' after being inundated with backlash online. Berry, 31, was on the podium at the trials in Oregon on Sunday when the anthem started playing. Her white competitors, DeAnna Price and Brooke Andersen, turned to face the flag and placed their hands on their hearts but Berry, a vocal BLM activist, turned to face the stands, put her hands on her hips and then held up a t-shirt bearing the words 'athlete activist'. In interviews later, she said

I wish someone would tell her that the Anthem wasn't played for her, It is played for the Winner's country. For "some "those who can't win, protest.

Don't watch except to note advertisers and then send messages to the network and advertisers of anger and your non-watch commitment. Then do not watch the Olympics at all. Nothing else will matter. Start exercising - ride your own bike - take your own walks - maybe even sell your TV and couch. As in, get your own life back. When networks and advertisers realize there is no one watching or buying stuff and find out that product endorsement isn't worth the investment, then just maybe we'll have athletes who actually represent our nation and its values.

Gwen Berry was the second loser in the Hammer Throw. She acted like a spoiled child by putting her shirt over her head to protest. Parents wouldn't tolerated such behavior from a young child. This is the Adult Olympics. Act like an adult! Stop being an entitled, spoiled child, suck it up, and stand there like an adult. I wish someone more deserving and appreciative could be chosen to take her place on the team. She is a poor representative of the USA.

What a vile and evil hose beast of a woman!!!! Just look at that picture. Pure class shown by the first and second place winners. Third place having her little racist hissy fit. Seriously, she looks like a spoiled 5 year old that didn't get her way. The Olympics are supposed to be about representing your country, not yourself. She clearly cannot do that, so drop her and allow the fourth place finisher to take her place.

Let's just end the charade of nationalism by making the Olympics open, well, that would destroy them. These aren't some poor amateurs eating beans 'n franks to play their game...these are professional athletes AMERICAN TAXPAYERS are supporting with subsidies and reward money for medals. The days of medal propaganda are over. The Cold War ended long ago. Time to get over it. Let these athletes fund themselves and end the opportunity for them to embarrass the USA on the world stage.

#23, you haven't been watching all the video of the racist BLM and Antifa thugs in Portland and other places throwing hammers through windows to make it easier to loot and burn them??? She says she is a BLM activist, so throwing a hammer is great practice for their mandatory rioting and destruction. Hey, I bet she could throw a hammer and hit a cop from 200 yards. That makes her a "goddess hero" to the BLM crowd!!!

I won't be watching. I used to like some of the winter events but the summer games haven't appealed to me since I was a kid and they sure don't now and never will. They ought to drop the games entirely but it's money now, not a celebration of athletic prowess. Taxpayers end up getting ripped off for the infrastructure and I don't think the games turn a net profit for the host country. Just a big loss.

I’ve written several times in the last few months about the skyrocketing inflation that middle America is enduring right now. The costs on some of the most commonly bought items have jumped, including food, building materials, used cars, and of course, gasoline and other types of energy.With that very negative news really setting in with voters, the Biden administration has decided to go on the offensive. In doing so, they’ve executed perhaps the most pathetic brag in presidential history. (Tweet/Video)There’s a lot to unpack here, and we can begin by asking whether this is even true or not.

McALLEN, Texas—House Republicans want to make immigration a centerpiece of the 2022 midterms. They can’t do that without fully embracing Donald Trump — a reunion that they sealed on Wednesday. The group of roughly two dozen GOP lawmakers got outsized attention for their trip to this border town simply because it was a precursor to Trump’s own visit. And Republicans soaked up that notice, with two immigration hard-liners even walking alongside migrants seeking asylum. Gov. Greg Abbott (R-Texas), whose invitation to the border Trump accepted, set the tone with an effusive introduction of the former president as having done “more to secure the border than anybody and any

Vogue, the world's fashion bible, has placed Jill Biden on her cover as the epitome of fashion. She's a "goddess," they explain. Which is a stretch, given that the first lady has sported getups like this loud red zebra print dress, or these huge-print patterned pantyhose worn with elfin spike heel ankle boots. It goes to show that its whole schtick is politics, not fashion. After all, the big fashion bible for the world's stylish somehow managed to overlook the nation's truly stylish first lady, Melania Trump, a former super-model, who not only was quite beautiful, but age-appropriate and elegant in her four years as first lady.

Vice President Mike Pence may be in the doghouse with conservatives but no one can say there were stories that he was a bad boss or that his office was chaotic, mismanaged, or incompetent. Things are different with Kamala Harris. According to an article in Politico, Harris’s office sounds like the real-life version of Veep, the HBO political satire that focused on the stupid, self-centered, and vicious Selina Meyer, a Vice President whose office was filled with slavish gatekeepers and self-centered staff, all of whom were incompetent. The story rings true. What's more interesting is contemplating why Democrats are going after Harris.

It just seems impossible." (snip) Like a lot of Americans, I always assumed that America was safe from the kind of tyranny the German people experienced under the heavy hand of the Third Reich.
